A little while ago I shared with you My New Office Space and perhaps you saw my cherub, which I call my concrete angel. I happen to love cherubs so I thought I would share this one with you as well. She has been with me for many years.
What is it about a tattered and worn cherub that attracts me so much? She hardly weighs a thing and she was created to sit while she plays her horn.
Even from behind she is pure beauty.
The cover is wearing thin, just like the body of a person, but she still has much to offer.
The cut crystal biscuit jar in a silver caddy was a present from my husband.
The cut glass gives an illusion of multiple facets of whatever you place inside of it.
The amber glass sparkles and shines inside of the crystal. It is sitting on top of an old cookbook. I have also placed three bunches of grapes in the bottom of the tray, as they add such wonderful color.
I love bottles, and the bottle of champagne with a fleur de lis is so lovely.
I placed a cut glass crystal wine stopper on it and I love the way it reflects the light.
I had an old iron pedestal stand and I placed a unadorned red candle on top of it.
The tall crystal decanter is also another treasure.
So I will leave it like this for awhile and take pleasure in all the items that bring me such good memories and joy.
Sometimes it really is the little things, isn't it.
The poetry books remind me of my Mother who wrote a tremendous amount of religious poetry. Although I was incapable of speaking at her funeral her poetry was read by my sisters and several of her grandchildren. Someday perhaps I will share some of her wise words here on the little world of mine. In the meantime remember, if you have the time, to occasionally toot your own horn every now and then.
