The shrines of East Somerville

I recently heard the residents of my neighborhood described as "houseproud", a word I didn't know was still in use.

At least on the exterior, houseproud manifests as a lot of rosebushes and saints. These are some statues near my house. I think they're kind of sweet.

Madonna with Distracted Attendants

Saint Anthony in the Bathtub

Madonna with Trashcans

Virgin and Child with Peonies

Madonna with Flags

Our Lady of Chainlink
