A saint I can relate to...

I put this on my sidebar but it's too small to see any detail. I'm posting it here in case, like me, you want to get a closer look. This came from Leonie's blog, which says it is St. Margaret of Scotland. Unfortunately I have no idea what the original source might be. In any case, other than the crown (and halo!) it looks like we have a lot in common!

St. Margaret was an English princess who fled England, married the Scottish king Malcolm, and raised 6 sons and 2 daughters while inspiring her people with her virtue and generosity. Read a brief biography here.

Edited to add: I'm really not trying to compare myself to a saint, ha! Just saying it's nice to see one looking so domestic!


  1. Somehow I don't think those are her children in that picture, they look like they are wearing rags. Pretty awesome that she can raise 8 children and have time to feed the poor children as well. Very nice picture!

  2. And I'm guessing she might have had some hired help? Being a queen and all!
