Room

The room of someone who goes to bed too late.

The room of someone who enjoys objects described in the following ways-
shiny
natural
old
weathered
worn
patterned
ancient
The box was a find on Greenwich market today, along with the tiny boxwood round box. The dice came from a 50p bargain tin of dice, the lamp is made with tissue paper from last weekend's craft fair. The jewels on the floor are from my hoard of crystal beads. The vase is a thimble and old metal bead from Deptford market and the plants in the vase and box are scrap book embellishments. The rolls of paper are papyrus from the British Museum. The clock is an old watch. Inside the lamp is a battery run nightlight.
