Painting Little Saints

I finally joined the party of the lovely ladies painting little wooden saint dolls.  I had so much fun painting these two!
You can guess who they are, right?
 Meg squealed, and said St. Anthony is so adorable she just wants to squeeze him---except he's just a little wooden peg.  And I agree---he's the cutest little thing.  I love St. Maximilian, but he's sort of ended up with scary, angry eyes that are softened only by his glasses.  Next time, I hope to do better.  I'm sort of tempted to sand off his face and try again!

I'll have to find a source for larger peg dolls.  These are readily available at the local Michaels, but the ones I see for sale on Etsy or other shops are larger.  Having a larger "workspace" no doubt allows for much more detail.


  1. i am in awe of your mad painting skillz.

  2. Good job Sara! These little wooden saints will surely become future family heirlooms for your children and grandchildren. I've been meaning to do these forever, at least get a collection going for the grandchildren. A few for every birthday gift would be grand. Keep motivating the rest of us to get going. :) Thanks for sharing!


Thanks for dropping by! I would love to hear from you. Have a beautiful day! :-)
