An antique Belgian angel wing, an antique Italian angel wing, antique corbels, glass candle holders I gave my aunt when she was dying that mean the world to me, a chicken wire candle holder, my IKEA white vase filled with fresh berries from my yard…amidst some burlap. These are my gloriously rustic elements….hopefully converging to make a RUSTIC LUX (my favorite design aesthetic!!!) Christmas vignette.
I had originally bought the antique angel wings for my ETSY shop, EUROPEAN VINTAGE, when I was living in Italy/traveling Europe earlier this year, but…I SIMPLY COULD NOT PART WITH THEM. They created an “instant collection” of wooden angel wings and now I’m on a mission to find more.
I. AM. IN. LOVE.
And putting them all together in this Crevecourian Melting Pot….a Magical Melange of international ingredients…allowed me to test my new camera. I have soooo much to learn….I played around with manual mode, the light settings of course, and utilized some of the basic composition techniques I learned from some of my drawing classes in college.
This is a RUSTIC LUX STILL LIFE!!!
I am joyfully sharing this with The Nester, Metamorphosis Monday, My Romantic Home, French Country Cottage, Tabletop Tuesday AND Vintage Friday.

Love/hugs/blessings & Belgian Angel Wing JOY,
PS The large Belgian angel wing is one I found in delightful Brussels. The smaller Italian angel wing is one I found at the famous Arezzo Antique Market…Arezzo is probably my favorite city in the world. We were so blessed when my eldest daughter, Alexandra, was able to study with the Oberlin Conservatory in Italy program in Arezzo there this summer and we came to visit her. We loved it so much we came back for an ETSY buying trip later. I HIGHLY recommend Arezzo and Brussels!!!!
