Still life- mandarins,old china and books

Where can inspiration come from? I was really blessed last week to be given a huge bag of fresh mandarins from a friends tree. So many I had to pile them up in my two tiered cake stand. They looked so pretty and luscious and beautifully orange I was inspired to do a still life. I found some old books and objects with similar hues and set them up in a little vignette. I was so excited when I looked through my dresser/cabinet to find some antique china cups with yellows, oranges and greens, the yellow jugs seemed fitting too and hints of green in the old book, the artwork and the cups! As we eat down the mandarins we can change the display to something else! Such fun.xx Corrina.
