Today's find

More religious paraphernalia to clutter up my home! But this one is unusual for being ceramic rather than plaster like most of the ones you find in Irish homes. It looks like it has a bit of age to it too. I couldn't resist.

You can just make out 'St. Joseph' written around the bottom of the statue but he's a bit of a mystery because Joseph is normally portrayed as a fairly benign father figure with a beard and brown robe while his guy is fresh-faced and carries a sword. Perhaps it's a whole other St.Joseph. Feel free to enlighten me in the comments.

As a side note, if you happen to be selling your house, and if you happen to believe in this sort of thing, a statue of St. Joseph is meant to help it sell quickly!
