I'm realizing I have a thing for glass, mirrors, crystals,
and silver that shines!
What makes your heart skip a beat?

LOVE YOU and I see I have an email; I have to go and get dinner ready for a guest today...WOW there is much to do today!!! BACK LATER..and I SEE YOUR LOVELY REFLECTION in all that you choose to share! Anita

These photos go straight to my heart. Really beautifully done, Violet. I , too , love the sparkle of glass, especially those prisms. And I'm smitten with that Fleur de Lys crown!
Just getting back on the computer tonight after my eye "thing", but already after 30 minutes they are burning again. So I'll be a good girl and go to bed.
Have a blessed Sunday,

I love the reflections of baubles and beads as well my creative friend! Sometimes I think it's good to take those type of breaks. They speak to our subconcious and then, voila, another creation comes to be as a result. Isn't that true sometimes?

What makes my heart skip a beat? Well, besides my Beloved and my grandchildren; I'd say chandeliers. Ever since we bought our first one to celebrate our 25th Wedding anniversary; I've been drawn to them wherever we go. My girlfriend , Kathleen Ellis, warned me that once I had one in my home; I'd want more...and she was right. So, I'd say Chandies are what make my heart skip a beat - Oh, not to mention OLD BOOKS that I collect. There's something about reading a book that is over 100 years old. I hold it in my hand and read aloud, and I wonder how many people have touched the fragile pages that I now own...and have read the words that I now read. I become extremely nostalgic in the experience! I also collect Old French books, but to my hearts discouragement, I cannot read in French enough to understand. A dream of mine some day. I need to go live with Anita so she can teach me French. :)

Hugs friend,
