In search of pretty things

I long for the weather to get better, and the flowers to start blooming.... I miss not being able to get out and about with my camera. So I ransacked the house instead, in search of pretty things to photograph to brighten up my photostream.

I suddenly had a brain wave and dug out my satin wedding shoes - they've seen better days, but they're still really pretty. And I ventured to the shops to get some fresh flowers to add some interest. I popped a vintage crystal decanter and some Royal Albert china into the mix - and voila!

I've layered these shots with a vintage linen texture from Florabella - I rather like the effect - but love the pure and simple versions as well.

Next up was the white vintage cup and saucer I thrifted last weekend - I just love it's pretty scalloped edges. I tried some simple white on white shots first of all, but ended up going for some vintage bambis. Everyone loves bambi, right? And of course some vintage textures for extra authenticity :)

And last, but not least, some more vintage Royal Albert china with some pretty Lizzyanthus flowers in a complemntary shade - and of course, bambi!
