Rosslyn Chapel

Link with directions:

This box was placed by my mother and father while on their first trip to Great Britain. I personally created the box, at the request of my mother, in memory of my great-grandmother (my mother's grandmother), Isabella. It was her favorite past-time to sit and watch her favorite creature outside her window...

Near Edinburgh, Scotland lies the small village of Rosslyn. Here we find Rosslyn Chapel. On the way down the lane leading to the chapel is a lane to the right. A sign says this is the way to the castle. A short distance down this lane we find a cemetary, on both the left and right.

In this cemetary, we learned that John Wilson loved his mother, Isabella. He erected a monument in her honor. In time, his father, (also John) joined Isabella. As time marched on, the younger John was reunited with his parents. It is here they wait, looking out high upon the grounds, for Jane, the younger John's wife. Behind them all waits Bella, for you.

***Although I have never been myself, instinct tells me that this has become a high-traffic area. Use caution, and rehide well. This is also my mother's first plant. So, please, if you can improve its camouflage, I beg you do so. Thank you so much!!!!!

For this box, you will need:
  • An inkpad
  • Something to write with
