Personal Reflections: Silver Little Lovelies

The winter light

is naturally beautiful

today so no edits

were needed for photos

I snapped of these little lovelies.

all of them were free or picked up for pennies!

yet they live large in my dining room hutch.

a locket holding a smiling happy couple

I’m reminded today of

one of my sister’s

favorite phrases:

Happiness is not having

what you want,

it’s wanting what you have.

something sparkly, something holy, something mysterious

The paper cutting

is a memory.

Not an art project

but a sweet accident

created by a son.

antique rosaries

Too precious to hide away.

lovely fleur de lis

flatware probably scored in a ‘free’ box at a tag sale rest inside an old English crock

we wear them!

another teeny old sterling box

I’m loving photography today

have a lovely week!

all photos mine

Peace to you right where you are.

    These are great photos. I really want a macro lens. My point and shoot can zoom in really well but my new lens is only 17-55mm so now close-ups for me for now!

    I love old silver-wear it has a charm that you just don't get when you buy new. These are gorgeous.

    This is stunning! I love silver since I was a kid. I remember that every jewelry that my mom had was silver (she loves it too) and I used to play with them.

    Your pictures are so well taken. Congratulations!

    By the way, I was laughing so much with your comment today! 🙂

    Have a great weekend, sweetie!
