The spelling book

Some brass ornaments, I bargain-hunted this morning, are in an old box of cigars.

The “Salon de la Mode, 1895” (1895 Fashion Show) old plate, with the patterns of a spelling book drawn on it, is used as a mat.

The spelling book is a wink at friends and embroiderers who visit my blog.
I place a dried outdated red rose to replace the red thread which is the symbol of life.

A brass rose window is hung by a thin linen cord around an old bottle.
