See how Shakespeare would have insulted you with his clever Elizabethan quips of the day.
I saved a couple of his insults directed at me.
"[Thou] small grey coated gnat."
Taken from: Romeo and Juliet
"[Thou] stale old mouse eaten dry cheese!"
Taken from: Troilus and Cressida

The Lawson Crest, the sun supported by the arms of the law, is a motif which is much in evidence both outside and inside the hall.
Distant view of the estate showing a pair of the crests atop a stone wall.
Closer view of a wonderfully weathered crest.
Rooster crest on my everyday antique English silver flatware. I couldn't believe my luck when I found the set at a local flea market!
I have a 19th century antiquarian book entitled The Royal Book of Crests. It is full of engraved crests like the rooster above. I am always using them with my illustrated quotes.
Thanks for stopping by. See you on the internet! ♥Rosemary
