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.

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!

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!
