Copper Key Necklace. $13.00, via Etsy. This necklace uses parts from vintage findings: the crystals are from clip on earrings circa 1940. The clip ons came to me from a sweet little granny that brought a whole briefcase of old costume jewelry that she used to wear to dates and dances, but the metal was getting too old and rusty and she felt that I could put her costume pieces to better use than sitting in storage.

Outside of Hertford This was a manor house ("farm" doesn't do it justice) in  Hertford, North Carolina. Although it looks somewhat antebellum at  first, it's not really that old (it was actually built  around 1900).  It had been sitting empty for decades when this photo was taken.

The butchered remains of a 14-year-old English girl were discovered on the site of Fort James amidst animal bones in the summer of 2012 by a team from the Jamestown Rediscovery Project.  After the failed first attempts, a cleaver was used to deliver “four strikes to the back of the head, one of which split the skull in half. A penetrating wound was then made to the left temple… which was used to pry open the head and remove the brain.” by candace
