WHITE, WHITE, AND SHADES THEREOF....

Today I'm thinking of all things white...and shades thereof...
I totally re-arranged the house on this rainy day today....
almost finished and happy with the new arrangments....
You must do that too, we all like to mix things up ....
I put our kitchen table on the summer porch and added white sheers on some of the windows.
Love watching the wind blow them in summer...
re-arranged almost every room...
Here are just a couple photos of White objects....
Trying to keep that pallet for the summer...
with pastel accents...
and just a few surprise blacks here and there. She is not mine...but I wish she was...
So whats's your pallett this summer....your dominating color? ....
These were a dollar at the GW....can you imagine making these and selling them for $1.00?
almost breaks my heart... think I'll make pin cushions out of them...someday!

Pieces of lace all tied up in white ribbon...under glass...
I had an organizational moment !!!!



Have had these wall plaques for years and cannot remember where they came from...
only know they remind me of my heritage...Scandinavian...






Happy White Wednesday....It is here anyway!
xoxo~Kathy.

  2. Oh Kathy! I love 'white' you've done here!
    lol
    I'm always into white, my walls are white, bed spread furniture....with accents of teal, pink and green...those are my colours these days!

    I just love the organized lace trims tied with a ribbon and placed in a jar...how beautiful that is...and clever to boot!

    have a great night!

  10. My sweet baby girls wore crocheted booties like those home from the hospital when they were born. So adorable!!! I am thinking about doing a white room at my house. I have been so inspired by all the gorgeous white rooms on various blogs. Enjoyed your pictures. Love & blessings from NC!

  11. Kathy, your whites are gorgeous, love the bicycle & those baby booties especially. You are sooo creative.

    No, no! I rarely move anything except to clean or clean around. Once I place something it is where I want it forever ...

    Hope you & hubby are doing well.

    Have a great week.

  14. Your whites are just glorious!
    I love the baby shoes, too.

    My dominant color this Spring would be cream, a creamy, crazed white. I just can't get enough of that!

    Have a wonderful Thursday!

  22. Lovely 'white' photos. I like the wall plaques. I did originally think about decorating my cottage in the Scandinavian style with lots of white but I tried it in my bedroom and thought it was a bit cold so I've now gone for warmer colours.

  25. Don't you love it when you get one of the "organizational moments?" I do, because they don't come all that often. Love those little baby shoes. Pincushions is a wonderful idea!
