Suger Creek Hollow's challenge this week, Pearls and Swirls.
The starting point was a Robert Heinlein Sci-Fi story I read about 30 years ago. Set in the future the behaviors and standards of a previous time prevailed, including duels! Private conversations were said to be 'Under the Rose' A handy La Blanche stamp provided the roses protecting this couple's secrets. All but one that is, the romance has caused her heart to take flight giving away the secret that she at least is a machine! 2 keys, perhaps they both are.
Does that give this an air of Steampunk? The Fashionable stampers will soon let me know, and so will Crafting when we can I'm sure.
