I recently collected things from boxes in my mother's room, as well as this beautiful victorian cherry wood table she kept. Brass and mirror vanity tray, decorative owl, candleholder that filters light in the prettist designs, crystal heart trinket box (which I will use to hold my sister's baptism pearls and a necklace from my mother so many years ago). the small drawer of the desk holds her items, a photo of her that I love, and a touching scene from marie antoinette that has caused me to cry (both before and after I lost her).
On a very different air and note, a second letter from Richard Ramirez after I failed to respond to his first reply. It holds anime photos, a letter, and a typed questionaire where he tells me his favorite costume for halloween, as a child, was batman. All in a pale pink envelope with rose and flower cutouts from magazines.
