Saints for Sinners Medals


I grew up Catholic. These days, I'm a sort of half-assed Episcopalian. But however far you take the girl out of the Catholic fold, you can never quite take the Catholic out of the girl. I love all the props, especially saints' medals. Episcopalians will call just about anybody a saint, which is a bit too democratic for me. I like my saints with magical powers and elite jurisdictions, thank you very much.

I adore these hand-enameled medals so much. I bought this one for my mom for Mother's Day. Teresa is her patron saint. You can buy yours directly from the artist, or in Little Rock, drop into the Box Turtle.

Thank you for writing about my hand-painted saint medallions from Your photography is fantastic. Your note was a great piece of serendipity and I truly appreciate your kind words and "thumbs up" review. Thank you!

Oh that is lovely! I love the line about the Episcopalians being a little too democratic--don't forget that Saints must come with a tale of horrible death. :)

I have one of these. I love it. I got a lot of compliments on it when I was in Mexico.
