It all began the morning I overheard the blue glazed urn chatting earnestly with the black and white trinket box…”doesn’t she think I’m beautiful?” it asked the box in a worried tone…and the trinket box replied in an offhand manner ”well…if she doesn’t notice me, with my remarkable monochrome marquetry…what chance has a cracked old urn got?”. Then the lead fireplace added loftily…”yes my dears, she passes me by everyday and never gives as much as a second glance at the glorious morning sunlight spilling across my splendid inlay”…and the old rocking horse looked up at her with baleful eyes and nodded in agreement…and so go the voices in my head! Something had to be done…so I went about my house with camera in hand…by the time I’d finished everything was turned upside down and nothing was where it was supposed to be…but at least the voices in my head are gone…for now!

    Thanks so much Mark – I’m glad you flagged this – I must credit this music directly into the post. Its from the soundtrack to Joe Wright’s Pride and Prejudice composed by Dario Marianelli and performed by Jean-Yves Thibaudet and the English Chamber Orchestra. You can find it on iTunes. This particular piece is called The Living Sculptures of Pemberley. Another beautiful piece on the soundtrack is Dawn – well worth the listen.
