Creative Day in the Fandom: RA Pocket Shrines 221-24/? – Thornton’s Pearls

Looks as if today is Creative Day in the Fandom: This morning I saw a post by Rachel about her beautiful RAPS-inspired wooden box of wonders that she created as a present for fellow fan Laura. And I just commented on Kate’s post – which is fittingly entitled “An Embarrassment of Rich(i)es” – where she…

He so pretty 😁

Ok, leaving the marketing aside, this is pretty pretty. @panmacmillan #KingsbridgeFestival Thank you for my copy Ken, I can’t wait to read it. Happy Publication Day. pic.twitter.com/ar11W6fE2m — Richard Armitage (@RCArmitage) September 15, 2020 Ya, I needed that double here. a) Smile. b) I really do like the Astrovian waves.

2020 Armitage Weekly Round-up #36

In a complete switch-up of the usual MO, here is a Monday round-up… I somehow got sidetracked over the weekend, doing other things. The weather turned beautiful again over here – which is quite typical for Ireland. May and September are always the best (read: driest) months on our little island. So I spent some…

All Set Up For Whatever Comes

It’s a dull day here in Dublin, but it has just been brightened up considerably. Picture quality could be better, but you can see what I just received in the mail. Our fan artist extraordinaire, Ani, has gifted me this gorgeous brooch that she made. Love it so much – from the choice of image…

OT: cRAfty Update

Disclosure: This post is sponsored by Scissors & Smiles. Nah, of course it isn’t. *I* am Scissors & Smiles, and I am not paying myself to write this post, haha. But well, I do admit I feel a bit odd about advertising on my own behalf. However, Sue from Imfeelingthis Blog had asked me whether…

More Pictures from Last Year

Twitter just alerted me to the fact that there are a good number of previously not seen pictures of RA available on Getty Images. If I get this correctly, they are made by photographer Aaron Richter and can be accessed HERE. To be honest with you, I can’t really say that I think these are…

2020 Armitage Weekly Round-up #34

Hello! As you have probably noticed, I took a little holiday from the blog over the last few days. I just needed a little bit of relaxation after the madness of last week 😜. But the round-up reels me in every time. It’s always a good reason to blog and be in touch with my…

Acknowledging the Acknowledgment

Yesterday evening I was chatting with my mum, explaining why I hadn’t had called for a few days. I told her about our fundraiser and that we had raised 3,500 Euro for charity as a birthday present for “that actor whom I like”. My mum’s first reaction: “Oh, does he know? Has he said thank…
