Memento Mori/Vanitas Painting

Help? ^___^; For my next painting project, I have to compose my own still-life. It must be made of 3-5 items, which are mounted against a 12x12 board. I'll be painting the composition from straight on as if looking down at the board (or if the board were hung on the wall), so that's something to keep in mind. I also need a background of some sort (fabric, scrapbook paper, etc.) on the board. So I'm having trouble really thinking up what to put on the board that's easy enough to find and easy enough to mount x'D

Here's a list of things I have so far (not including hard things to mount such as .. skulls o-o)
obvious .. hourglass, wilting flowers/rotting fruits
pinned insects
yellowed music sheets
old books/letters
cameo necklace
candles
burnt lightbulb
pocketwatch
poisoned apple - apple/vial - bpal?
birthday candles/cake
rosary, cross

So yeah. I'm just really not feeling this project because of the theme. If it called for kawaii stuff, then I'd be ALL OVER IT :'P Any help would be appreciated!
