The collected opinions of an august and aristocratic personage who, despite her body having succumbed to the ravages of time, yet retains the keen intellect, mordant wit and utter want of tact for which she was so universally lauded in her younger days. Being of a generation unequal to the mysterious demands of the computing device, Lady Bracknell relies on the good offices of her Editor for assistance with the technological aspects of her journal.

A minor achievement

In an uncharacteristic burst of energy (in between Tramadol doses), Lady Bracknell's Editor has at last managed to fill the turned wood earring stand which she purchased at least six weeks ago from Ebay.

Flushed with the success of this undertaking, she subsequently proceeded to dust not only her dressing table, but also all the various jars and bottles of Thierry Mugler fragrance products which make their home thereon.

The remainder of her day has been spent mostly in recuperation from the physical effort required, but also in occasional admiration of surfaces which are generally half an inch thick in dust.

Having been given a preview of the photographs published above, Mr Larkin has asked whether they are of a shop. It would appear to Lady Bracknell that the unfortunate Mr Larkin may yet have a great deal to learn about the Editor's capacity for collecting and hoarding shiny objects.

Ooh, I like that earring stand. I always wonder how people find unusual things like that on eBay - what were you actually looking for?

If memory serves, I was looking for something in the jewellery category and saw a jewellery box. Which led me to search for "jewellery box". Then I found a wooden jewellery box. Then it occurred to me to search for "turned wood", which had never crossed my mind before. And, lo! There is quite a lot :-)

My earring stand came from a seller called stormpeterel, who doesn't currently have any more for sale. (Although I'm sure it would be worth checking back.)

But I've found another ebay store for you selling something very similar. And necklace stands - hurrah!

Dusting? Dusting? Surely Tramadol is the perfect excuse never to do any housework ever again...

I bought a walking stick holder on Ebay. (Realised tripping over the sticks in the hall was counterproductive.) The search that produced the best results turned out to be 'umbrella stand'...
