Shrine Embellishing

Remember this shrine from
way back when? 

In case you missed it
and are so inclined, 
you'll find the related post here.

It's just been sitting around 
on a shelf waiting 
for some zhooshing up.

I got out my bead box,
assorted assemblage items,
and went to work (or play, as I'd rather say). 

I used a PVA glue instead
of a glue gun, or the stinky
kind of glue that'll literally 
glue your (I should say,
 'my') fingers together. 

It takes a little longer to dry,
but I think in the long run
it'll create a more durable hold
and my fingers will remain separated. 

Thank you for stopping by.

Hoping you have a fabulously creative week! 



  1. Love the addition of the beads, Terri! Great move.
    I had no idea so many pieces made up this whole. Another exercise in extreme creativity. Hats off to you!!
    And... just love your new profile pic. :} Lovely post.

    1. Thank you Chris! I was 'spinning a lot of plates' over the few days it took me to make this.

      Glad you like the pic. It makes me smile at the memory. I think I was around 5 and I gave my mom such a hard time because I hated the dress she had me wear. "It makes me look like a clown!" I cried! haha~ My poor mom. . .

  2. Beautiful!!! I enjoyed spotting the difference Terri! xx

  3. Both versions look really gorgeous. I like your colorful style.
    Dear Greetings
