matchbox shrines

These are my safe motoring shrines
featuring Saint Frances of Rome.
In 1925 Pope Pius XI proclaimed her the patron of drivers.
She could always see her guardian angel,
at night his halo would illuminate her way.

*these are not standard matchbox cars
they would not fit in the matchbox.

*buffing tip

Today I was at the buffer trying to buff these small items.
The familiar burning sensation came to my fingertips.
I was told if I buffed enough,
I'd burn out the nerve endings
and it wouldn't hurt so much.
If it's a pendant hook a paperclip on it.
That way you can hang onto the clip,
rather than the hot piece.
