More Pizzelle... In Progress

Here on my drawing table sits a work in progress, and the progress is... slow. Between holidays and a new three-day-a-week job, my attention to this piece has been snatched in odd little pieces of time. It's starting to come together, though.

This is my third still life that features pizzelle, a favorite Italian treat of mine. I have used an antique linen with a lace trim that relates to the waffle cookie's pretty design, and two of my favorite vintage blue pitchers to compliment their golden hues. Perched like this on a quirky old pedestal table, I thought they looked rather splendid!
