Smile Picture of Mary hanging the laundry

Hello

Could anyone point me to where I can find a picture of the Virgin Mary hanging the laundry? It is a beautiful picture where she has Jesus playing at her feet while she's working.

Thank you!

I love that picture too...always seemed perfect for a nursery. It's called the Polish Madonna.

That is just so lovely!!! Seeing his sweet little bum on the ground is just adorable, and so humbling.

That would be wonderful for a nursery!!

....or a laundry room, to remind us that even Mary had to do boring household chores.

It is beautiful though, thanks for sharing it -- I think I'm going to order one!

Edited to add: what is Jesus holding? It looks like a cross - it's probably just a stick or something, but I can't tell.

I think it is a cross.

I love the idea of having this in a laundry room! Note to self: remember this print if we can ever sell our house and get into a house with the laundry area out of the basement!!!

This is a really beautiful picture. We sell it in our stores. I love it because it shows Our Lady in every day life. God BLess.

Mary did laundary? You mean she didn't make St. Joseph do it ? Didn't she hire a nanny for that type of stuff?

I have this picture hanging in my little dungeon of a laundry room too! It actually makes me feel better about having to do laundry, at least I don't have to hand wash everything like so many other generations before us had to do! Does anyone know of a picture of Mary cooking dinner or scrubbing a bathtub...I might feel better about those chores as well!!
