Lighting candles at St. Patrick Church near the statue of St. Joseph, Maura helped me out this afternoon. I’d given her a ten as she was headed out the door. Asked her to light five as they’re two dollars each. Take a picture, I called to her. She did exactly that!
The candles will burn for hours in that holy space, throughout the nights. It’s an intention to remember friends and family who are ill, going through a difficult time, experiencing loss snd grief, facing treatment and or surgery, recovering from surgery, expecting a baby. A candle can be lit in gratitude and thanksgiving, too, whatever you believe.
A candle seems a universal symbol for hope. A way to let someone know you are keeping them in your heart. Thanks, Maura.

And let it begin with me”

My post today is a January photo but from January 15, 2012
We were coming home from the Masters of Visual Arts Show at the Heinz History Center. It was dark but the church in the Strip District was glowing from inside. St. Stanislaus Church was built in 1891 For Becky B’s #Januarylight challenge
The above photo a square or close to it. The following photo shows the stained glass window design and I couldn’t bear to crop the photo.

Dovecote, a vintage boutique in Aspinwall Pennsylvania, located on Brilliant Avenue. What a great address. Brilliant!
Here’s what we discovered –
The boutique is definitely eclectic and affordably priced. Scroll down for more details. There are vintage items, consignment items, handcrafts, antiques, jewelry, home decor and holiday fun. Sports team theme including black and gold potholders and darling onesies with hand sewn embellishment, adorable ruffles.
The felted Mr. Rogers created by Artist Christine caught my eye, and the Pennsylvania ceramic platter would be cool to serve from at a dinner party.
