Very late post! Sorry!
Mr. Penumbra's 24 Hour Bookstore was a FUN read! Hard to pick out inspiration, but I loved these passages about the first time they went down into the secret reading room. Why it is secret, and what was there are spoilers, so I'll leave it to your imagination.
My necklace consists of vintage wood, new wood, stone, metal, and crystal.
Thanks for looking! Return to Andrew's blog to see who else played along this month.
