"Who is/was Barbara Cartland?" I hear you mad old women ask. Well you ought to know her, because she was the quintessential mad old woman's mad old woman, and - just like all you other mad old women out there in blogging world, she was obsessed with the colour pink.
It's a little 'taper-stick' actually - used for sealing the wax on love-letters, just like the ones created in all the ripping novels of Barbara Cartland - yes, she was a writer, but unlike many of you mad old women out there, she was a commercially successful one (God knows why or how).
Now tell me that antique candlesticks have no relevance or interest in your bloggy lives!
