There is a sparkly new shop on Etsy that just opened today called Ordinary Miracles. The Artist Marcy Hall, who’s paintings you see very often on the blog Bliss Chick, has opened her own Etsy shop!! Underneath her banner “Art to Focus Intention” is written. It is hard not to fall in love with the treasures in this shop.
Milagros, or ex voto if you’re traveling in Italy, are often made of tin and then taken to and left at shrines for healing purposes or in gratitude for a prayer answered.
They can also be carried for protection and good luck or placed on an altar.
My milagros come in many forms: gouache on paper, gouache and tin on wood, and shrinky dink pendants.
They are intended to focus your attention, intentions, meditations, or prayers.The meanings are varied, according to your need.For example, a leg would not just mean leg troubles but could refer to travel.
Marcy has also included some of her original paintings that are adorned with milagros.
The one above for Fertility and the one below for the Heart are my favorites!
