Props! Be Still #6

my cup runneth over
This week's topic in the Still Life class I'm taking is props. I have LOTS of props. I collect all kinds of things. I especially like glass ware and linens. And old thing. Vintage things. I love the things I inherited from my mom, from my Grandma, from my Aunt Vera. And I love the things I have bought at antique stores and junque shops.
Slightly unbalanced
I have always been partial to these egg shell tea cups, even though they don't match anything else I own and don't really serve any purpose other than looking cool. So I pulled them out to play with this week.
cup of pearls
I took lots and lots of photographs using the cups, my pearls and a vintage apron. I was proud of myself for being able to pare them down to these three, all of which I really love.
Do you have a favorite among them?

I like them all but if I had to pick only one, would choose the 'slightly unbalanced' one.

I love the top one the most, but keep coming back to the unbalanced one. Love looking at what you come up with.

The second one is my favourite - I love a stack of items in a still life.

My favorite one is the first one. I love the pearls spilling over the edge of the cup. I would love to acquire some antique linens to use in photographs.

That first photo is my favorite, but they are all beautiful. (I'm so excited because I just ordered me a studio light/umbrella/stand kit for photo taking!) These photos make me want to pull out my china & play when it arrives.

They're all lovely but my favourite would have to be the unbalanced one.
