Coffins, Death, and Floral Prints

I've been thinking a lot about coffins lately.  I went to my grandmother-in-law's funeral back in May, and I've seen that episode of "King of the Hill" in which Hank and Peggy build their own coffins.  Building coffins seems like a good "Date Night" type of activity, but what kind of coffin?  Coffins range all over the place!  There's aluminum, wood, shiny, matte, burlap sack, wicker, Cadillac...  I don't even want to get into tombstones.  Phew!  I think I want a nice shabby chic one with a large floral patterned cotton interior and a white washed beadboard exterior although I am a bit taken with these.

Thoughts?  What do you want for a final resting container?

(If you just want to be burned, compressed, dissolved, stuffed, or donated, don't bother replying.)

Cardboard box under a tree for me.

Oak, or maybe horse chestnut. Although, a mountain ash would attract the birds...
That far down? :D
Some of those carrion crows can be persistent...
Ach, you're too easily shocked.
Or just horrified at the thought. :p

I intend to be cremated and put in a nutshell. People who could never figure me out can look on the mantel and say "Well that's Nina in a nutshell". Yes, I know only part of me will fit, the rest, hopefully my head, can be thrown into the clouds so people can say her head was always in the clouds. If they want to cut off my feet those could be buried so people could say "her feet were always..."

it might be nice to be turned into cat food / bird food then a skeleton (medical -type). that's more comprehensive recycling?
