Tinkering


Bought this frame at the thrift a while back, it's glass is slightly bowed, which means I can mount things behind it with a little depth, like buttons and antique trims.






Most of these little critters are bound for fagin's daughter...and I tell you, if there's one thing that's giving me satisfaction over the last week, it's photographing antique things.

jet glass mourning buttons

18th century silk fragment

French jet bracelet bars

cut steel style black glass buttons

In fact I love the photography side so much that I've done more still life collections, and will be offering them in 8X10 - trophy (previously only printed as a postcard) is already available as an 8 by 10.

Just beautiful. Your photography is dark, luminous and deliciously moody.

@tirabaralla - well I really like the one with the few buttons and the book scrap (3rd one down) I think that's my final choice. I just adore that brown crochet button!!
