Lovers of literature will enjoy these beautiful, handmade brooches created by London-based artist Sarah of House of Ismay. The decorative pins are constructed from reclaimed wood covered with the original, worn out pages from many classic books.
The glass-enclosed funeral monumentof Inez Clarke at Chicago’s Graceland Cemetery. 6-year-old Inez Clarke was killed by lightning while on a picnic with her family. Her parents, stunned by the tragic loss, commissioned a life-sized statue of their daughter to be placed over her grave. There are tales of the statue weeping as well as claims of Inez actually moving. It is said, during violent thunderstorms, Inez vanishes from her glass box and roams around the cemetery until the storm is over.
