No, this is not an OT post!
Well, there have been changes.
Hm. I think it is now several years since I last could see my table top 😂. Anyway, at the weekend, I bit the bullet and got into it. There was no particular reason; I just felt like tidying up in order to free my mind a little bit. I put on my current podcast obsession (“The Lady Vanishes” by 7 News – another true crime story that is absolutely fascinating to listen to. Australia seems to have some very interesting stories going on. A few weeks back I listened to “The Teacher’s Pet” and that was also compelling.) and then sorted and tidied and cleaned and shifted. I filled two huge bin bags with rubbish and charity shop items, rearranged the bookshelves a bit and finally found a solution for *all* my future RAPS tins in *one place*.
I admit, the box isn’t pretty to look at. Have to do something about that at a later stage. But now *tada*, here is a look at the full shrine collection.
Doesn’t look like much? Well, wait and see.
In full glory:
Let me count for you… That’s 98 “all shapes” in the box on the left. 71 Altoids and other similarly shaped tins in the middle, and 39 large tins and antique tins in the box on the right. 208 in total.
😱 😱 😱
The next 200 RAPSes?
Because 🥳 – I can already disclose that I have hit my target. In the meantime: thank you to all of you who have gifted me these tins. The vast majority of them came from you. I shall try and use them for what they were intended for. 😘
