Play Things



A tiny child's porcelain cup and saucer...
...with sweet black and white pansies...


An old beveled mirror...


A glass cloche found at Goodwill...




 An old hand written letter
 tied with vintage cream colored seam binding...


A fresh water pearl necklace and a single glass prism...


These are my play things...
...my Legos ...
...so to speak!


It seems no matter where I'm staying I can find toys to play with!
Hope you have had a little time to play this weekend too!
:)

Such simple elements to make such a dramatic statement. It's so fun to combine, mix and match -- then put them under glass. The things you chose all look great together!
