What a GREAT idea. I think I will do this with my girls. BTW I love the red wall. To Jesus through Mary!

These are so lovely!
I especially noticed the way each shelf reveals something dear and unique about its designer.

Alice, these are just beautiful! I am heading to the craft store today for these very materials. I will let you know how they turn out. :) Thank you so much for the inspiration!

Thanks so much Alice! This looks very do-able and the finished product is lovely. (I plan to teach my children to decoupage while chatting with Lissa ;-)...

Oh Alice, these are so beautiful. I love projects that show individuality AND usefulness! And at such a small price! Thanks for sharing another one of your fabulous, marvelous ideas!

These are so sweet! And so simple- a big benefit at our house! Thanks for sharing!

Alice, what a wonderful idea! I am looking forward to trying this at home with my children. Thank you also for the information on St. Louis de Montfort and the writings of Pope JPII on Marian devotion as well. I so appreciate your kind, creative heart!

Thank you for your beautiful post on St. Louis Marie Grignion de Montfort. My dad and my brother are named Louis, after him and after King St. Louis IX.

In addition, thank you for sharing your Mary Altars. They look wonderful!

Thank you for a meaningful and simple Marian project that my daughters will love...Where did you find your lovely holy water bottles?

>>Where did you find your lovely holy >>water bottles?

We were fortunate enough to discover them at our local religious goods store. I'm so glad you liked them.

I can't begin to thank all of you for these kind and generous comments.

Sorry to be late (again) :) but I wanted to add my appreciation and awe for these beautiful craft ideas!

>> I am glad to think of my girls looking at the Crucifix and Our Lady of Guadalupe at eye level as they doze off to sleep, perhaps after a blessing of holy water from each individual bottle.

This is such a great idea. I'm going to be a Godmother soon and I think this would be a perfect gift for the new baby. Thank you so much for sharing your wonderful ideas. I'm printing all of them out. *smilez*

Thank you for this idea. We'll be doing this craft for our Little Flowers summer camp next month. Our daughters can hardly wait...and I can hardly wait for them to have one in their room!

what a nice idea! And really, no need to go to the craft store...I see small shelves like this for very little money at garage sales and thrift stores - and also statues, beaded flowers ( I have some vintage beaded flowers on my altar ) and other items that would be nice to use.

I think this would be a great idea for my young nieces, who love to look at and rearrange the items on my altar.
