blessed wild apple girl

'Pon a hill a green bird sat
Her owlets in a green felt hat
Her fortune was a wish.

Amelia Jane Murray, Lady Oswald, 1800-1896
“‘Emily,’ as Amelia was always called, was born in Port-e-Chee on the  Fairy Island of the Isle of Mann, the daughter of Lord Henry Murray,  whose ancestors had for generations beeen styled the Kings of Man. Emily  and her five borthers and sisters had a privileged childhood, living at  Mount Murray, a house five miles south of Douglas. Her Fairy paintings  date from the 1820s. She was inspired by the rich folklore of the Isle  of Mann, epitomised by the name of her birthplace, Port-e-Chee, which in  Manx Gaelic means ‘Fairy Music’” — Peter Nahum

Sunday  morning, Camberwell Market, just another box of odds & ends. A  gentle shake of this match box felt oddly light. Inside I discovered  nine snails shells collected from Lord Howe island in 1928, collected by  ‘Stone’, according to the inked tag. Antique snails! Vintage  gastropods! In order not to draw attention to my stupendous scientific  find, I nonchalantly offered the seller 20 cents. This event is now  referred to as The Great Snail Swindle.
