RUST



SMOOTH:
A Cornish serpentine stone lamp base is now used as a doorstop.
                                 



IMAGINATION:
Anthony Browne illustrates an edition of Lewis Carroll's Alice's Adventures in Wonderland.
Both used their imagination in their children's literary work.                                



CLASSIC:
Statue of Flora by the Flemish sculptor, Jan Nost (1694) in Flora's Temple, Chatsworth House, Derbyshire.





SIMILAR:  
These Murano Confetti glass earrings are similar.  Being handcrafted the floaters inside make them slightly different.



PARALLEL:
A chain for the electric pulley system that opens and closes the garage door.



SOCKS



BEAD:
These earrings were made and sent to me by a blog friend, Ada (Flores de Colores).



MUG:
A mug bought in the Royal National Lifeboat Institution Museum, Bamburgh, Northumberland features the heroine, Grace Darling.


Another one was bought whilst visiting the antiquarian and second-hand bookshop, Barter Books, in Alnwick, when on holiday in Northumberland.
