Before I get to the frippery flippancy of the latest portable shrine, let me pass on a message of thanks to you. This arrived in my mailbox on Tuesday:I am passing this on to all of you who took part in the Charity Auction and helped Save the Children! Thank you!
As part of the auction I had pledged to send a token thank you to all participants and created a number of little RAPSoids. Since I had only 16 little Altoids smalls tins at my disposal but 20 participants who bid and donated to the project, I had to make a few alternative mini-RAPSes. One such RAPSoid was due for Suzy@Silverbluelining. And since she visited Ireland in May and went on a little road trip with me, I gave her RAPSoid an Irish theme. (I would have liked to find another “Connemara Kitchen” mint tin like the ConnemaRA RAPS I made for Helen, but unfortunately they were sold out in the place where I had snapped it up before…)
To stay with the Irish theme. there was only one choice of scenario for her RAPSoid:
The world’s tallest dwarf, jogging through the Connemara countryside. He’s even got his red hair on…
You could say, we went on a “Hermitage Tour” (Reisen means “travels, tours” in German) together. Unfortunately, no Hermitages (or Armitages) were discovered in the process… But we had much fun nevertheless.
So there we are. This is only a small thank you for Suzy’s donation – and for the parcels she has sent me, containing my beloved “housewife porn”
which, if I may point out, does not include images of a certain OOA in states of undress, but is my other guilty pleasure – interior design magazines, materials for shrining, sweets and peanut puffs… And for providing another reason for enjoying the beauty of Ireland on our road trip together. If the opportunity arises again – I am on 🙂
