Thornton’s Pearls Raffle Results

Good morning, let’s start the new week with the results of the raffle for the two RAPS minis from the Thornton’s Pearls series. First of all, thank you for all your lovely comments. I went through them all again for the purpose of compiling the list of names to input into Randompicker. I was delighted…

RA Pocket Shrine 220/? – Untie

Did you see Ani’s latest unbearably cute cartoon? Couldn’t get this out of my head. I often imagined how Richard and his Mum sat together reading, answering, signing Fan mail 😌(The text is supposed to be funny🙈) #RichardArmitage pic.twitter.com/gpkpt4GErh — Ani 🏳️‍🌈🐒 (@AniNomori) May 19, 2020 You really have to look at all the details…

RA Pocket Shrine 219/? – Brilliantly British

I’m not having much luck with the titles for my RAPS post. I just noticed a major slip on the Percy shrine post from two weeks ago. 2018 shrines? Jeepers Creepers. I mean, ok, 200+ mini shrines about that *one* bloke may already look bonkers. But 2,018 would be obsessive! Corrected. *Um* I have just…

RA Pocket Shrine 218/? – Vintage Percy

A new week in this whole extraordinary time in our lives. How are you keeping? I’ve learnt another thing last week, in that my happiness and mental equilibrium during the crisis does not only depend on the state of my pantry (i.e. that it is well-stocked), but also on my creative output. I have observed…

RA Pocket Shrine 217/? – So Bad

LOL – as I was checking for the current number of shrines by looking at the previous shrine post, I had a good laugh. A typo sneaked in – which apparently no one noticed. Instead of the number “216”, I wrote 2016. Whoa, that would be an impressive number… (Have corrected the mistake in the…

RA Pocket Shrine 216/? – Seasalt

I wrote the blog title and spontaneously abandoned the computer because I *had to* go and get myself a small packet of crisps. Craving for something salty – after *that* title. The reason it is on the blog today, is this: I hear you saying – why didn’t you hide the nasty advertising as you…

Quickie

Just a quickie for today, folks. After a junk journal phase, today the shrining bug bit again. Not least because I want something else to post than Fan Challenge questions or Covid updates. So much more uplifting to have something pretty to look at. Wanna see something not-pretty? Two down. I want to make more,…

RA Pocket Shrine 2015/? – Perfect

My slightly overhasty mail love project from last week has already shown some success. Two out of three letters have arrived at their destination in Italy. So much for my “lovely” post mistress telling me that no post is getting through to Italy. However, I still take the point that maybe other shipments by mail…

RA Pocket Shrine 214/? – Colossal

Let’s start the week with a bit of fun. I have stepped back from the computer a bit. It just brings me down to be online too much. Fiddling with paper and scissors, on the other hand, makes me happy. Also, temperatures have suddenly gone down again in Ireland, and typing at the computer gives…
