Elizabeth Barrett Browning Quote . . .

This brass letter clip is one of my favorite things. When I placed it on an antiquarian music book, I got the perfect image for this Elizabeth Barrett Browning quote.

I used one of my old cameras, an Olympus C-7070 wide zoom. I haven't used it for ages and had forgotten how much I like it because the LCD screen is moveable. This is a wonderful feature if you are trying to line things up. I still had to use the "straighten" tool in Picasa (free download from Google). I always use this feature before jumping over to Photoshop Elements for final photo editing.

Happy Monday Rosemary!!

What a wonderful little clip and what a wonderful job photographing it!! I agree, the music page was the perfect choice for the quote and the brass clip! Where did you find that lovely little hand and how old is it? I've never seen anything like it.

Sabina...Mine is a reproduction. The real ones are 19th century English antiques from the Victorian period. One of these days I will find an antique letter clip that is affordable. I'm always on the lookout. ♥Rosemary
