Inspired by all the shrines I've seen (especially the one I received from Pretendpeterpan in the shrine swap round 2, which is just lovely), I decided to make my Mom a shrine for Mother's Day. She loves the expression about giving your child roots and wings, so that was my theme. It's especially appropriate as I just moved 3 states away (not for the first time, but this time I think it's permanent).
Here it is!

(she loves lilly of the valley, they were her wedding flowers, and my grandpa had lots of them so they remind us of him)









I hope you like it! Smiley

Awww, shucks!
I've actually been sorely lacking in my shrine making lately. But now all of my swaps are officially done so I'm going to try to get back to work this weekend. I have a lot of them living in my mind that need to get out in the open.

I adore the "Always Kiss Me Goodnight" one in your etsy shop (it's on my "things to buy" list!) I love the images! I tried to buy a candle with some of those kisses  but the company went out of business (Lilac Bow Yoke, who also made wonderful buttons!  Cry  )

I have some of those candles! I got them at a "Museum Company" store when it was going out of business here several years ago.
