The last few days I have been fiddling away with a couple of shrines. Frankly, I just couldn’t rest after the recent realisation that there were some glaring omissions in the gallery of shrine subjects. You voted in the comments for the chaRActer most urgently to be enshrined, and I have listened. Adam Price it is, as pointed out on the shrine lid.
However, unfortunately I ignored your persistent calls for ‘Adam in glasses’. It’s not that I object to his glasses. Quite the contrary. But they have to wait for another day because something else happened.
Discerning shrine lovers will notice that the design of the vertical shrine “back” is uncharacteristically simple. Usually this is where it happens in my shrine, as I use the mint tins upside down and create a little diorama scene in the former “receptacle part” of the tin. Well, somehow something else came to mind this time, and for once I used the mint tin in the orientation it is meant to be – with the shallow part as the lid that can be opened. Here’s why:
Yep, I just couldn’t resist the ‘sleeping beauty’. Adam snoozing in his virginally whites.
I actually sewed a teeny tiny pillow and matching duvet. And yes, I know what you are thinking. You are wondering whether the duvet can be removed…
*tut tut tut* It can indeed. But naughty you… whatever did you want to inspect under the cover???
Hehe, well, but this wouldn’t be a RAPS if it didn’t have a candle. So, brace yourselves, ladies.
That little tutting sign only obscures the small hole for the candle holder and can be moved to fit the candle. The placement of the candle was entirely coincidental.
So there we have it. Fairly harmless on the outside. Cheeky on the inside.
If you like this shrine, leave me a comment on my WP blog. But since we all need a little pick-me-up in this bleak time, I am going to raffle this RAPS away. All comments will go into the raffle unless it states that you don’t want the shrine. Comments for raffle participation are open until midnight tomorrow, Friday 26 February 2021 (GMT). The raffle is open to anyone anywhere in the world, and as usual I will send the shrine (and some extra goodies) at no extra costs to the winner. Good luck, all 😁
