White Torso and a Favorite Collection.

This week, for White Wednesday kindly hosted by Kathleen over at Faded Charm, I am showing you one of my favorite things. Do you remember the torso I made last summer from antique linen and lace?

She now graciously displays my precious collection of vintage brooches and necklaces and has become one of the pieces I love the best around my home (dwelling in my studio, by the way!).

The majority of these treasures comes from lovely Kimberly. Even if that part of my blog is now deleted, some of you may remember we swapped creative supplies last year, and she overwhelmed me with oodles of fabulous pieces of vintage jewelry! Thank you once again, Kimberly! 



Besides rhinestone costume brooches, I'm a hoarder of anything with pearls, which are my favorites ever.  If you like beautiful things in white, plese pay Kathleen and the other participants a visit, you can find gorgeous inspiration!
Hope you are all having a fabulous week!

    I love pearls too.

    With my old computer the gadget 'Followers' always disappears, I have a new one now and it's no problem anymore. But I can't find it at your blog, did you remove it ?

  19. Anything that glitters is wonderful in my opinion and when displayed against white lace....The torso provides just the right backdrop for your treasures, Monica. Beautifully photographed. Lesley
