RA Pocket Shrine #238 – Astrov on Stage

My day was a bit mixed today. It started good with a letter that I had given up hope of receiving. During the whole pandemic panic prior to Christmas, some of my shipments went missing. I could only lodge an enquiry for the ones that had been sent registered. Seven months later I now received…

RA Pocket Shrine 237/? – Glove Love

The last few weeks were packed. So much so that I never got ’round to posting my usual RAPS reveals. And once the fundraiser was in full swing, I didn’t want to add even more posts spam to the TL. You may have seen the shrines already (if you looked through the respective eBay listing…

RA Pocket Shrine 236/? – Woolly Wonder

The mail is taking ages these days. I’d already wondered whether this shrine had gone missing – which would’ve been even more terrible than any lost shipment. Because this was a little RAPS mood booster for a lovely fellow fan who is currently undergoing some health treatments. Another experiment with spraying a mint tin gold,…

RA Pocket Shrine 235/? – Fishy

It’s time I finally post this latest RAPS that has been sitting on my desk for several weeks now. The events of the last month or so put a bit of a dampener on my blogging activities, but with spring comes a fresh new urge to get back into more blog activities. My creative energy…

RA has no known connections to Ireland other than work colleagues (e.g. Orla Brady, Dervla Kirwan) and film locations (George Gently, Pligrimage) Although due to geographic proximity and historic links, almost everyone…

RA Pocket Shrine 233/? – Be Well

A little change of plan. The fish still have to wait because a surprise shrine made it faster to its destination than I thought. And seeing what tin it is in, it kind of fits today. Well, yesterday really, since it was International Women’s Day, and the design on this little tin is a classic…

RA Pocket Shrine 232/? – A-dayum

Let’s start the week with a little shrine smile. It’s Monday and I need to work. An article about woollen hats is waiting to be written. And an online test for a prospective job is also looming. As usual, I am procrastinating. That’s one thing that hasn’t changed in lockdown. But I am telling myself…
