    I love, love, love the shrine that Design Team Member Lora Mahaffey made for her Mermaid Kit artwork!

    But before I quote from Lora’s (always witty) blog: the new Wrought Iron Gate for Arched Shrine Shadowbox! Designed to fit the Arched Shrine Shadowbox (but such a pretty piece, I’m sure you’ll find other projects for it, too). And it looks smashing painted black as part of the Victorian “cage” for The Captured Mermaid.

    From Lora’s blog post:

    She was found tangled in a fisherman’s net, her arm badly broken. That day there happened to be a journalist at the harbor photographing the boats when the fisherman came in with his odd catch. Before anyone could say ‘Fish and Chips’ she was whisked away to London, her arm repaired with the most advanced technology of the Victorian era, placed in a large, specially made tank and hauled to the British Museum where she was the talk of the nation as folks came in droves to see her.
