The universe is obviously behind the Pocket Shrines. All indications point to that. For the 25th shrine milestone all stars have aligned.
Well, at least from my perspective and without my conscious input. It just so happens that my favourite chaRActer, Guy, happens to fall not only on the milestone of “25 shrines reached”, but this also happens to be on Guy Day! Moreover, just as I was getting ready to compose the post, the mail arrived with a parcel from Switzerland – from the shrine’s new owner, April73 – so I can include my thanks in this post. Edit: Just seeing after publishing that this is my 100th post on guylty.wordpress.com. Another milestone! Coincidence? Yeah, right…
Enshrining Guy is always easy.
A sign that I may have looked at the available Guy images a bit too often. This particular design had been on my list for a while. There is something about the main image in the shrine that has always fascinated me even though I have taken the piss out of one of the versions of the photo in an early *spooof* last year. But let’s start at the beginning…
I’ve kept things simple on the outside because the eyecandy comes in the inside.
There he is, the dark knight, dangling seductively in the orchard. Don’t you feel like plucking him from the tree like a ripe apple? That little peek of his waist is positively sinful!!! No wonder that butterflies are attracted to him…
Couldn’t resist putting a little flower in his hair… Lighten up, Guy, you are much loved!
The words can be removed, of course. They are magnets. Or reassembled. “Must drool”?
The black knight, with his sword, on black background. Yeah, I think that sums him up.
Providence was with me when I made this shrine. Because I immediately found just the right kind of twig for the “tree” in my garden. And you think the universe is uninvolved? Yeah, right…
This Guy now lives with fellow blogger April73. She blogs in French on her April’s Violet blog here on WP. Even though my French is pretty non-existent, I am subscribed to her. A picture says more than a thousand words, you know ;-). Go check her out!
A RAPS request from the land of Chocolate – irresistible. And now see what I got in return for this Guy RAPS:
The notorious “peanut puffs” on the left and Little Guy on the right *squeeeee*. I hit the jackpot, I think. BTW, next to Guy, what looks suspiciously like the “bobbin”, is actually John Porter *yay*, king of the chocolate mountain, incidentally. Lots of Lindt goodness, and some very distracting bookmarks… Thank you, April – I had no idea that Little Guy and John were still around, and I love adding them to my Original Shrine.
A couple of housekeeping notes: Thank you for indulging my requests yesterday. I received a good few nominations for the Fandom Love RAPS and will write a separate post on that, soon. Thanks for sending in your nominations and crediting your favourite bloggers and fans. I think we have a winner there. Also, many thanks for the feedback re. small mint tin lids. You’ve been a great help in that regard, and the results of that will soon be presented.
Happy weekend, everybody ❤
