Five Favorites- Alphabet of Saints :-)

Linking up with the lovely Hallie today!

So, the massive order is finished!!! I hope our friends at Fabrics and Fun enjoy their new saint friends, or, as Sister Stinky refers to her duplicate copies, "the families." (It was so cute...when she saw them all lined up on the dresser this morning, her little face lit up and she said, "How's it goin', guys?" You can tell she spends most of her playtime with her mother...)

All these lovely saints are based on the saints found in the book Alphabet of Saints. It's an absolutely lovely book, and I look forward to using it in our Alphabet studies in the future. I'm very much inspired by how Jessica incorporated her own dolls and this book into her preschool time with her little ones!

  1. Oh my goodness, so cool. I need another child so I can get these and that book. Okay, I may cave and get the book first and spend my time waiting for the childling painting. So cool.

  2. Oh my gosh, you know I LOVE this! Though I must admit, I had a difficult time naming all the saints. I'd never even heard of Sts. Odilia, Yuen & Zita (shocker, I know, haha). And a certain French Maid of Orleans seems to be absent from the list...maybe in the next batch?;) <3

    1. Haha...yeah, I actually didn't pick these. They go with the picture book that I linked to ;-) Always interesting to see what saints people have as favorites, though!
