Small Things....

I am drawn to small things...
I love the dainty details...

(click photos to enlarge)

like the delicate porcelain flowers on this tiny boot...


a mini boot maybe suited for a minuet,
but it can get lost on a shelf...


I also love the delicate details
of these fragrant Nemesia flowers,
I plucked from a planter on the patio...

they smell just like vanilla...


they do make a pretty pair....
but they still make a diminutive display...


so I placed them center stage
on a stack of china...


besides any excuse to display china
is a good thing :-)


Today I am joining...
and

Thanks for stopping by....

Love it ! I like to tuck tiny treasures like that into my hutch and my desk ... they make me smile just knowing they are there.

Bella- I love miniatures too. They have always fascinated me...but you are right - it is so easy for them to get lost in the "big picture" of a home. What a perfect and lovely little display. xo Diana

"Dainty details" is your signature look, I think, Bella! I've never had such a close look at so many little things before. Especially your gorgeous garden flowers. Tiny is sweet. xx ps Your watering can was featured again! But you probly know that :o)

I love tiny, pretty things, too, but you are so correct that their presence seems to be lost in their surroundings...I think you featured the boot and flowers perfectly amidst your lovely china and table setting.

Gorgeous photos, as always!
