I've not done a blog post in a while. A very long while indeed. My apologies. Life got very busy with the start of nursing school, and all the work that it entails. After 16 months, I have my BSN, and I take my NCLEX on Thursday.
This was a baronial scroll: the Order of the Leo. It is given for excellence in the arts for the Barony of Ayreton.
It reads: Let it be known by all that we Henry Baron and Baroness Nadezda of Ayreton do recognize the wealth of talent that Heather Hall hat shared with the Barony. We do upon this XXVIIIth day of March AS XLIX make her a Comanion of the Order of Leo, for her long and outstanding service to the scribal arts.
The Scroll itself is another from the Kleinodienbuch der Herzogin Anna von Bayern or for everyone else the
Jewel Book of the Duchess Anna of Bavaria. The manuscript is an
inventory of the jewelry owned by the duke and his wife, Duchess Anna, a
member of the Habsburg dynasty and a daughter of Emperor Ferdinand I.
It was commissioned in 1552 and is simply a spectacular manuscript. One of my long term scribal goals is to reproduce every page of it. I LOVE this manuscript.
What's SUPER sneaky is we got called up in the Baronial Court together. I did her Leo Scroll. She did my Leo Scroll-which I adore.
