Really, you must pace the floor in deep thought before you write, you're all so kind!
I’ve been playing with some pretty props, and I’d love to share them with you.

When Emma Mattsson and Petra Kjellstrom came from Sweden to shoot my studio
for Skona Hem, I made an effort to make it look more Nordic, like something
in that utterly ravishing Danish magazine Jeanne d’Arc Living. 

So, I borrowed some Catholic paraphernalia from Mom and made
a little devotional ‘altar’ before a chippy white mirror. 
A rosary of pink glass beads…

…a French holy card, some candles. 
The whole thing was inspired by the sparkly sacred heart decorating my most recent

Rosemary also posted some lovely photos of religion inspired bottles in vintage lace
from artist Rhonda  and her Etsy shop Paris Gal 56.

My Swedish friends didn’t care for any of it –- they wanted a neutral American look!

At any rate, it was fun to do.    Speaking of Jeanne d’Arc Living, Roberta over at
Enchanted Treasures is hosting a giveaway till 11 November for the Autumn and Christmas issues.

‘Till next time, stay shabby!

I’ll be sharing this with:
