Animal, Vegetable, Mineral ~ A Study in White

Old ledgers and bottles, bits of china, a few snippets of lace. . . .

I have such a romance with old things. Throw in a few natural elements like shells and nests, and I'm completely besotted.

I just found this tiny irridescent bottle in a junk shop. Recently unearthed, and a bit unearthly. Like a bit of the moon broken off from the sky.

And a small transferware vase.

Oh, the joy in a gathered still life. . . .

I hope you're gathering up for a great weekend!
Ciao! for now!

  13. Jaqueline, you have no idea how pleased I was to read this post! I just purchased an old milk bottle that is irridescent, and wondered just if it's really old or not. It's so pretty, looks so similar to yours only large and shaped like a milk bottle. I love your post, and adore your pretty transferware. Thanks so much for sharing, stopping by via Sarah's party this week, xxx tami
