REBEKAH MIKAELSON STARTER SENTENCES
  • Just because you’re carrying a baby, it doesn’t mean you get to act like one. 
  • Call me old-fashioned, but I believe farewells are best in person.
  • Get out here and tell me what you’ve done with our ____, you narcissistic, backstabbing wanker!
  • I wasn’t being literal, darling.
  • I know you hate me but what is done is done.
  • If I had a dollar for every mess my family has gotten me into…
  • I want to have kids with someone who loves me enough to stand outside my window with a stupid boombox.
  • Admit it. It may do wonders for the stick that’s lodged up your enduringly stoic ass if you did.
  • You know how I love to set things on fire.
  • I’m surprised you came to my party.
  • I’m not hungry, I’m angry.
  • Tell me I didn’t miss Christmas.
  • Look me in the eye and do it. Do it, you coward. Do it!
  • Well, I hate being told what to do so I ignored you.
  • What happened to the ____ I used to know? The one who laughed death in the face.
  • Your stupid temper will be the end of you one day. Just know that.
  • You and I on the same team. It must be Christmas.
  • I know I have to give her back to ______ when the time is right, but she’s made me realize how much I want that child of my own and I know I can’t have one.
  • Oh, she looks like her mother. Maybe there is a god after all.
  • I plead you to shut up and listen.
  • I don’t want to be afraid of what my brother will do to me for loving you.
  • ____ isn’t dead yet? Well, good on him! I love a good survival story!
  • You would choose love over family and then condemn me for doing the same.
  • Fair only gets you so far, love. Clever gets you further.
  • Here`s the thing, my family, we have money, castles, jewelry, just name your price and let me out.
  • I`m leaving now. You can either walk out that door with me or you are on your own.
  • Who do we have to kill?
  • Absolutely not! I paid for that!
  • Sorry to crash the fun boys, but some of us actually came here to hear the music, not you.
  • I am not a brat!
  • You really do love her, don’t you? Consider me jealous.
  • You don’t shut your mouth, the next thing to come out of it is your teeth.
  • Do you think I want to spend what could be the last few hours of my life having idle chitchat with a girl who literally stabbed me in the back?
  • You should know better than to sneak up on a lady.
  • I thought I killed you.
  • I mourned you! My heart broke thinking I’d never see you again.
  • I loved you through everything and you don’t even care.
  • So, then leave. Out of everyone, your presence is the least necessary.
  • You have a nice behind.
  • Well, 7 of us and no one thought to bring s'mores.
  • If I didn’t know better, I’d say you were becoming a halfway decent person.
  • Impressive. You’re like Sherlock Holmes with brain damage.
  • The first rule of truly living– do the thing you’re most afraid of.

Medieval Gold ‘All My Heart’ Posy Ring, found at Corfe Castle, England, War of the Roses era, 14th-15th Century

Engraved with reserved acanthus leaves separating three reserved scrolls inscribed in Black Letter French script 'tout mou couer’ (with 'mou’ being a variant spelling for 'mon’ and thus reading 'All my Heart.’

The ring dates to the Wars of the Roses period, at a time when English was the Common tongue and Latin the language of the Church and law but French was still the language of the Court, of chivalry and of love; its French inscription embodies the Medieval ideals of love and it would have been the gift to a noble lady from her future husband on their betrothal. The story of this ring and its finding has been filmed, interviewing the late finder and others, under the title 'Revealing Secrets’ (Watch video ).

I worked on this Laputian guardian earlier this week, and finally got enough light to capture some photos yesterday (woot) :) Laputa was the first Studio Ghibli film I ever watched (unknowingly at the time since I was 8…), but because of that and because of how beautiful the whole story is, it’s remained in a special place in my heart. 

The whole process is super finicky since each part of its body is made separately and then joint together… so there have been a few casualties. If you would like to check it out in more detail or take it home with you, the listing is here. There are currently only 2, but I might make more in a month or two if there’s demand for ‘em.

Happy Friday!
