I watched the lunchtime Scottish news today and there was a bit about sales of the author Mary Stewart’s jewellery, books, jade and such which will be held at Lyon and Turnbull auctioneers over the next few months. You can read about it here. Apparently she treated herself to a gorgeous piece of jewellery whenever she had a new book published. It would be nice to think that her ‘stuff’ will end up with people who were fans of her books, but sadly I won’t be bidding! You can have a snoop at the online catalogue here though.
The newspaper article calls her Lady Mary throughout which drives me nuts as of course she was NOT Lady Mary she was Lady Stewart. She would have had to be born a lady to have that title, instead of which she became Lady Stewart when her husband was knighted.
