Richard Burton and Liz Taylor
In answer to Chriss's question about Richard and Liz in my bedroom this is the picture I was talking about. Its on my bedside table, so its one of the first things I see when I wake.
Just further along is an old fashioned trunk, its like a pirates treasure chest, I love it. On top of there I have an old wooden box, as I have mentioned before my grandfather was an undertaker and this is the wooden box he used to keep his embalming tools in. The tools have long gone, but years ago I altered this box ( long before I even knew about altering items) I lined it with dark red velvet and trimmed it with lace around the lid. I use it to keep a collection of very old lace handkerchieifs in, most of which belonged to an old aunt and my grandmother. I also have a small collection of old brooches on the lid. Next to the box theres some old evening bags and a small lace parasol. Im adore old things as you can see.
