Greetings from London! I may be on my first business trip this year to the big city, but I have an hour to spare before I head to see Les Blancs in the National Theatre later tonight, so I might as well pass the time with a quick post. I am not in my usual plush hotel, but in a stylish “boutique” number. Pop!Thorin is accompanying me, and he slightly pulled his nose up at the room when we arrived late last night. With the big station clock above the bed, and the rough charm of graffiti’ed concrete walls, he sniffed that we had been asked to sleep in a railway station. In fact, the bed was very comfy, and the breakfast quite nice, too (although not served in bed 😣), so it is fine as it is.
Last week I had a creativity flash that found its outlet in a spontaneous shrine design for a particular fan-friend. Since my return to Twitter it has occurred to me, that there are a lot of lovely ladies on that platform who inform and delight me with their tweets. Sabine aka @heyerette is one such lady. I have known her through Twitter and blogs for a while now, and I love her dry humour directed at RA – and I enjoy her beautiful photos and posts about sights to see in London/England. Reason enough to say thank you for entertaining and informing me, by a special little RAPS mini for her.
There is no doubt from *that* shrine outside, what Sabine’s favourite animal is… The darling little tin was given to me by Hariclea, and with the cat theme now settled, this is what happened on the inside:
You can probably all figure what “miau!” means. “Kater” is German for “tomcat”. And “miau! Kater” could be construed as a comment on the hot human rather than the cuddly kitty in the tin. (If Sabine doesn’t like the “Kater” bit, she can actually take a scissors to the tin and cut the word off – I only stuck it into the tin under the word “miau”). Unfortunately I did not photograph this very well – you can’t see that I also pasted the word “schnurrrr” into the tin. It means “purrrrr” 😊:
But here is the bottom of the tin:
Baby!Richard getting cuddly with another cat. Well, in case Baby!Richard is not quite Sabine’s thing (even though I hear she has a weakness for some long-maned Royal), she can play with a few further pics that can cover RA’s early headshot thanks to a little magnet on the back:
A shrine for Love Cats *cue The Cure*
Hope the love cats shrine hits Sabine’s taste 😍. If you know her on Twitter or on tumblr , then go and give her some love ❤
