I often talk about St. Expedite. He has his own little page on my website. There's good reason for that, he's never let me down when I really needed help. Until now, my offerings of thanks have been placed on the counter. I wanted to create a special niche for him, away from the bustle of the house. And so I came up with this...
A little tin and glass lantern atop a large painted spindle. I'm hoping it patinas well. I've helped with the aging process by distressing the paint a little bit :P
Inside is just the right size for a small glass of beer and slice of cake, or some other token of thanks for saving my butt one more time :) Perhaps I'll find a small figure to place inside too.
How wonderful!! I love your thought processes Nichola! Very inspiring indeed!ReplyDelete
What a great idea! One way you could incorporate a small figure of St. E. would be to remove the top cupola of the lantern, keep its little roof and use it to cap a little 4-sided shelter (either open or glassed-in) for the statuette.ReplyDelete
I love this! =DReplyDelete
What a perfect and wonderful place for St. Expedite! <3
