Show and Tell Shrine

Obviously you Bitches need some inspiration to photograph ANY ITEM IN YOUR HOUSE and send it in for our upcoming “Show and Tell Day.”

So Mistress MJ presents this Virgin Mary shrine from her own personal collection…


With a simple flick of a switch, you can gently illuminate your room. Makes a great nightlight!

Wind it up and watch the Blessed Virgin’s eyes open and close and her hands fold in prayer to the musical accompaniment of Schubert’s “Ave Maria.”

Mistress MJ bought it at a yard sale in Toronto for 50 cents. Or did I try and talk them down to 25 cents? Because Mistress MJ is cheap a great haggler.

Let us pray for more photo submissions from you Bitches.

Deadline: Saturday!!!

  6. Simply remove the pic of the Virgin and insert a pic of your favorite icon (MJ, Judy, Imelda, Gloria, Leona Helmsley, Madge etc) and voila! INSTANT SHRINE!

  8. When I was a young nipper, I bought my mother a birthday present from a church jumble sale, it was a print of a street scene including a genuine clock powered by a double A battery for 30p, she kept it in the downstairs toilet along with the other bits of tat I'd bought for her including: a miniature Blackpool Tower, a conch shell with 'Greetings from Scarbrough' written on it and a glass trout.

    1. MITZI: The autographed “Blanche Hunt/Maggie Jones” photograph you sent to me hasn’t been banished to the loo.

      It hangs with pride above my office desk.

  9. Love it! I used to collect religious "memorabilia", icons and such, and ended up with so much (once people know you collect something they love adding to it) that my place looked like some sort of demented shrine. Everyone assumed I was Catholic (never was). That collection has since been dispersed and distributed amongst various friends, so I still see some of the better pieces on occasion. Your nightlight would have fit right in!

    1. THOMBEAU: I’m not Catholic either…I just always seem to end up with them!

      I’m sure your place would look like a demented shrine with or without the religious memorabilia.

      It’s a GOOD thing.

  12. Does it really play music and move? Seriously? THAT IS SO COOL!! It's like the one stop shrine - shop for all your kitsch needs! Tell me you have a princess phone with seashells glued all over it just like Madonna did in that one movie where she dried her armpits over the hand drier in the bar.

    1. Was that her arm pit? I thought She'd done a handstand...

    2. NATIONS: Mistress MJ has a Princess phone but no seashells attached nor any bits of Madonna’s armpit hairs.

  14. Our dear Mistress shouldn't put up two posts at the same time. All of the bitches have missed the celebration of World Whisky Day.

    Of course, I didn't miss it... I'm not one of them old drunk drag queens that crawls in and out of the Infomaniac lounge!

    Hugs
