Happy Easter and Saint Francis, Lemoncholy Style

i couldn't decide between my Easter vignette photo or my blooming Magnolia bud, so you are getting them both!

what do you get when you combine a cute but creepy doll head, a paper mache birdie and a crown?

why you get Saint Franc
is of course!


i love to do assemblages and wanted to do something fun and interesting with this bird cage - so this is what i came up with!

Saint Francis of Assisi was the founder of the Franciscan order, but to most people he is best known as the Patron Saint of wild birds and animals as well as ecology. He is appealed to for the good health, well-being, and protection of all animals, and for facilitating dream contact between beloved deceased animals and their grieving owners.


here is my Saint Francis wearing a cape, which sort of gives him an "infant of Prague" look. i have a collection of these, so i got some inspiration from them. go here to see my collection.
