A new era is starting. I shall not apologize, and I shall not justify *ggg* – but can I at least say that the following RAPS is not meant as a comment or a snarky aside, trying to push my need for harmony on my readers? In fact, I made this RAPS a few weeks ago, and the time never felt right to present it. I also didn’t know who to give this RAPS to, even though I initially made it with someone in mind. But it turned out a little bit too blingy for her, I think, and so I am thinking – how about I raffle this one off? To all you critical commentators, people pleasers and fellow fans out there? Have a look, and if you like it – leave a comment and you are in the hat for the draw. (Small print at the end.)
It’s time for a bit of Thorin love again. This tin came to me from Suzy@Silverbluelining. She gifted me a whole stash of tins when she visited here in May. Faster, higher, stronger – yup, Thorin is all that. Eh. Sort of. In my imagination. What is he up to now?
That is one fierce dwarf, guarding his stash. He is holding a real sabre, by the way, a fabulous miniature that came with Suzy’s tins. He seems to have changed his method of fighting slightly. This is the Middle-Earth version of an iconic image that photographer Bernie Boston titled “Flower Power” took in 1967.
I wonder how Thorin named his weapon…
When I think of Thorin I think… fur coat and nose. Well, and cuddles. What do *you* think?
The words are magnets – so can be removed. No candles this time – not that he isn’t worth it, he certainly is. But I didn’t want to punch holes into the tin because I liked the cover of it…
There we are. A slightly lighter version of Thorin. I hope you like him. And if you want him, leave a comment and you are in the draw. Comments (and participation in the raffle) are open until 11.59 pm on Tuesday, 16th of June 2015. And guess what? That is Bloomsday – how very fitting for determining the winner of a Flower Power RAPS!
Good luck ❤
