A Blissful Whites Wednesday

Peeking through my vintage wire basket on my desk.
In my studio, I have to be organized
 and I collect pieces to go with my creations
 in wire baskets for my next photo shoot.
It could be jewelry that I focus on.... 
 or simply a moment that it all falls into place.
It amazes me that all my years of collecting has finally paid off.
Pulling out the antiques and ephemera and using them in my photos.
I think I'll keep my vintage wire basket, just where it is. 
Keeping me organized at last. 
One more...
This is the 3rd French antique crystal piece I purchased from France.
This one is my favorite. Can you tell me why?

Happy Blissful White Wednesday Everyone!

Joining Becky and all the Blissful Whites!

Is this 3rd crystal piece your favorite because Saint Sophia was the epitome of Christianity and witnessed the death of her 3 daughters, While praying the entire time?

Oh yes, I know! Precious St. Sophie. My boys are sending sweet kisses her way! Hope you two are staying warm. My chi's hate this cold weather. Oh, and your beautiful crystal is DIVINE!

BECKY said...

Sigh...such loveliness! You sure have a way with photo styling gal. These are beautiful photos. I am always searching for more pretty little things to use as photo props.

Have a delightful weekend, and thank you for always sharing your pretties!!

Oh, my, Rhonda, such gorgeousness galore!!! Your newest French antique crystal piece is so exquisite that it defies description.♥

I have two guesses as to why it's your favorite...

~ You are multilingual and appreciate that St. Sophie's name--and saint status--are expressed in three languages;

~ Your mom or someone else dear to you is named Sophie/Sofia/Sophia.

Um, does the "winner" win the piece??!!

Your beautiful blog just makes me smile. Is it the name Sophie? Or just how she is looking up so sweetly?
