I don't think I've ever done a shrine before, but for the Favorite Book swap, I thought I'd take a stab at it. I made this shrine as an homage to Life Expectancy, by Dean Koontz, one of my favorite novels by him.

I was pretty pleased with the way it turned out, hopefully my partner likes it as well!

 This is awesome. I love the way you added the crowd and the crow on top of the sign.

I've read some of Dean Koontz's work over the years, but I'm not familiar with this particular book.  Even though I don't know about the story, this is still a wonderfully done circus-themed shrine, especially the female trapeze artists.  I really like the black-and-white striped tents too, probably because of my love for Beetlejuice, as that's his fashion trademark.

There's not much in this world that can't be improved by either chocolate, bacon or glitter.

This is great! I love how it is interesting and fun even w/o knowing anything about the book (like me), but for those who do it's like a secret treat!
