More on Barbie’s altar

I went shopping on Mission St. yesterday for altar pieces.

There are shops that have lots and lots and lots of small ceramic figures Many of them are religious and some are “pretty girl” Victorian and almost all are very sentimental. They are all made in China. After having examined literally hundreds of figures, I found a haloed “Barbie” faced Christ child in a red robe. In a Latin craft shop that I like a lot, I found printed “Virgen de Guadalupe”

I also saw a great sheep but it only came with a set. So now there’s a sheep on my wanted list.

More later.
