A shrine for Grandpa Gregorio

I think the reason I love assemblage art so much is because I finally put to use all the knick-knacks I refuse to throw away.

I made this mint tin shrine in honor of my hubby’s grandpa. Every single one of the items in there has a specific meaning to him and his personality. For example: the cough drops. He always had them in his pocket and when he greeted you, he would shake your hand. He’d walk away, you look at your palm, and there was a cough drop. The sexy dancer is inspired by the Saturday night variety shows on the spanish language networks. He loved the flirty dancers in the sequined outfits! Get the idea? It’s amazing to think how many “little” treasures you can find if you look hard enough.
