A Romantic and Feminine Muse

A short and sweet post
to share the romantic
to share the feminine
side of me
A little pretty
never hurt anyone
A few new jewelry pieces 
I created while in this feminine and romantic mood

Marie Antoinette Style

 Tarnished and faded jewels
worn with time and love
 I fell in love with Versailles in France
and all of it's glory
 So when I found these gorgeous 
vintage mini hand painted portraits of Marie Antoinette 
I grabbed them up
Versailles is forever etched in my mind
and
Marie Antoinette style will never fade


Necklaces were created by me
and can be found here

Thanks for stopping by!

A Way of Life

An antique book, French wax flowers, florentine table
and a florentine framed print of Mary & Jesus
were just the perfect setting for my pendants
 I will be listing many pendants later this afternoon 
All are tied up with antique lace ribbon 
I can think of many uses for them.
How about you?
 I've been too busy to list all I've created
in the last few months!
Then the holidays came and went, you know how that goes...
But I'm ready now to list away in my shop
***
 Wrap one around a bottle
for a simple statement
 These pendants can easily be added to your favorite necklace 
You can look for them here
after 4:30 pm Arizona time
Have a wonderful weekend everyone!

See you next Friday for 
French Friday Giveaway

Le Desk

If you are constantly organizing your studio...
you have stopped at the right blog!
Since I photograph so much on this shabby white desk,
it has had many different vignettes on the top shelf
 Everything I collect
and 
everything that I adore,
seems to end up right here
Keeping my desk clean for photos sessions
is a huge challenge for me
I am so prone to piling items on my desk
because it sits in my studio 
With little time (some days) to clear away all of  the clutter,
when I'm ready to shoot a photo or two,
I know I will try to keep my desk in order
What's on your desk?
