spilt milk.

Photobucket

durning the victorian mourning people wore or carried lacrymatory bottles, a glass vessel that was used for collecting tears shed during the grieving period,typically lasting one year. some bottles were fitted with a special stopper that would allow for the tears to evaporate over time. others preserved the tears to later be spilled over the grave of the dearly departed once the mourning period ended.

bloodmilk sterling & rose gold plated versions coming this fall.

I have one of those! I didn't know what it was, I thought it held perfume. Do you want mine? You could do more with it than I could... Let me know and I'll ship it to you.
