A VERBENA SACRED TREASURE... OVER SIZED PEWTER TWIST TOP SACRED HEART EX VOTO PENDENT FINISHED WITH A COCO COLORED EXTRA LONG SILK RIBBON. ( i moved it up for the pic) Exvoto is a Spanish word meaning votive offering. The word comes from the Latin, meaning "out of a promise or vow" and these votive offerings are given or dedicated in fulfillment of a vow or pledge, or expressing a wish or desire. It is most commonly a personal thank you note to God, often taking the form of folk art. They are very public, yet very personal, professions of faith in God. BEING A COLLECTOR OF RELIGIOUS INSPIRED ITEMS THIS IS ONE OF MY FAVORITES I WANTED TO SHARE WITH YOU...
XOOXXOO LAURA e-mail me to order

Hello and thank you so much for stopping by and saying hello to me! You mentioned translation... See at the end of each post - you will find an English translation in blue there! I have so many visitors from other countries that I started writing in both Norwegian and English - not so many outside Norway know our language! Have a good week and come and say hello again!

It's wonderful to learn you are a collector of religious items. It seems like that's my greatest inspiration. I feel like some of my collage arts can not complete until I give credit where I feel it's due. I really hope your order was what you were hoping for.
Contact me if there is anything else I can make for you.
