St. Francis

I've been wanting a St. Francis statue for a while now.  I hoped to find one that was conrete so I could find a great place for it outside.  I found one at Home Goods a couple of weeks ago - it was concrete and was a great price, but it was much larger than I had envisioned.  I decided against it and then went back frantically the next day to buy it - it was gone.  I had severe walk-away remorse!

I ran into Home Goods this evening to purchase a gift card.  And guess what...

I'm now so glad I passed on the concrete one.  This one is cast iron - so HEAVY!  I love the brown and turquoise colors.

Here is a close up of the bunny he is holding:
And the fawn by his feet:

The little card that came with him says St. Francis of Assisi - the Patron Saint of Animals.  I'll find the perfect outside home for him this weekend!

Steph, great find!! I love these statues. Your comment was so cute. I had hoped to do a pre-post teaser, but got sidetracked and will hopefully do one late tonight. Keep watching!!
