I simply love concrete lawn ornaments...Concrete religious figures make me especially warm and fuzzy. This fine example of the Blessed Virgin was well out of my price range though. And would have evoked too many weird memories of Catholic school to be in my apartment.

One thing I must say, however, is that the Northwest seems to have a severe lack of bathtub shrines. I remember seeing these when I traveled on the East Coast and through the South. Basically they were up-ended bathtubs, with a statue of a saint, or of a jesus, or of a virgin mary, and some fake flowers. It was all quite gaudy,

Maybe we just don't get it over in this godless land of the Pacific...
