Little canes

At our last meeting Sandy brought in some small empty tape cases. I think she said that she was cleaning up and just couldn't bring herself to throw these little beauties away. I've already filled mine.
Thanks for sharing Sandy.

I finally finished the shrine that I started back in November. When Janice announced that she was teaching shrines I hussled to come up with an idea that would make mine "useful" So here it is. I made this for my sister who breeds Pomeranians and in general has a very soft spot in her heart for animals. I made small name tags for each of her dogs that have passed away and I will also include name tags for her remaining dogs. (she can add these namse to the shrine when they pass away) Ok, ok sorry for sounding a little morbid here. Over all I think it's a happy looking shrine and a pleasant way to pay homage.
