Enshrined


I have been known to make these small shrines in the past, they are rooted in my I love for Mexican art and artifacts and also because Catholicism played a big part in my upbringing. Perhaps it is because we are in the Lenten Season, leading to the holiest of events but whatever the reason I couldn't help myself when it came to honoring this stone. This labradorite is the most flawless specimen I have ever seen, a stone to be revered so that's just what I did. I added a the tiniest vintage coral to the top of her crown and one handmade bloom. The clasp has a variety of charms too, a faceted garnet, another labradorite and a small textured heart.

It is now over here if you would like a more detailed look.

I seem to be making better use of the time today, I set my alarm for the first time in forever trying to reset my body clock.

    2. I saw a green gummy bear in the street and the light was just perfect to make it look like prehnite and I thought gee I need to get out more often :)

    2. A dirty place. I thought it was the norm for Dads to have "eyeliner" on when coming home from work.

  4. I can always use an extra period....
    :-)

    I love your shrines--this one is especially lovely and so thought-filled. I literally gasped out loud when I saw the photos in your shop--that kiss of coral!!

    And then I read during lunch that a gasp-out-loud moment is a form of prayer, really--an allowing of myself to be in wonder. (Anne Lamott's new "Help Thanks Wow" book) So, your shrine is fulfilling its destiny.

    See what issues forth from your hands and heart? That's another "Wow!!"
