Last week I got a bundle of ephemera from around 1917 - bills, receipts, bank books, insurance documents - all household kinds of bits and bobs. Finally I've put together something with a few of the bits - not all as there are about 50 individual bits of paper.....

For once most of this image is genuinely old stuff - aside from the feathers - not sure about the glass bottle.

I reckon the feathers, are from an old crow you found at Prestbury parkWink

Seriously Ali, the old coinage and the Mrs Gaskell book are a really good addition to the imageTongue

Now where are you going to lay your hands on some old white fivers instead of those pennies?

A fine collection and you have made great use of them for this still life. The processing is very complimentary to the scene.

Thanks everyone - having been out for a potter into town this morning I've come home with yet more props - hopefully I'll do something with them later.....

Oh the feathers came from a half eaten body I found Adrian - had the head still been there I'd have taken that too but just removed a few slightly messy feathers instead Smile
