a spirit of discernment, are diamonds and pearls."
~Jean de la Bruyere, translated from French
I am still not over my flu bug - which means I am moving slower than usual. Oh well! I wanted to post something pretty today. I have a little notebook that I write ideas and inspirations in (I'm sure I have mentioned it before) and I look at it when I need an imaginative boost! This week though because I am feeling under the weather I just picked up my camera and started moving things around and taking quick shots until I thought something looked pretty. Sometimes those photos turn out the best! I emptied my jewelry box and took pictures of the sparkly mess on my bed where the lighting was horrible. The shot wasn't so good but it made me start pulling things out and playing with them. I love jewelry - old jewelry especially. The pieces that have a beautiful old fashioned, or delicate design are always the ones that catch my eye. You will see from my pictures that I also love pearls! I hope you like these few photos of 'pretty things' and the little drawing I am including with them. She is another spontaneous creation :) (P.S. The ribbon rose in the final photo is by Meadow Street)
I am linking to Your Cozy Home Party!
