This time of year I don't know why but I love things that are white. I love to decorate with alot of white, have fresh white flowers in the house, use white dishes and table linens,white bedding, dream of white gardens, etc., etc. I think to me white in the new year represents starting fresh again, a sort of renewal! I started thinking of all the white things I love and here is a collection of things I found and thought I would share them with you!
When I was a little girl I always wanted a vanity when I grew up. Well I don't have one but I found this picture of one. Wouldn't any woman feel special putting her makeup or jewelry on at this one! I know I would!
I took this picture in the Fall when I was up in Asheville. I could just write letters for hours at a desk like this.
If I had this bed, I would feel like a Queen! I always feel white bed linens are so calming and soothing. I think I get this thought from my Nana, she always had beautiful white bed linens.
White bed linens very similar to the ones Nana had.
I have an antique stepback cupboard in my Dining Room, maybe a display of white dishes similar to this would look beautiful! Something to think about.
When I saw this picture of this white living room, my first thought was how comfy it looked! I could just see myself knitting or reading in that room for hours!
White tea sets and white table settings have always been a favorite of mine! I would love to have the things in the next two pictures:
You could add these beautiful white cupcakes to your white tea set too! These creations are just gorgeous!
This Victorian white fence piece was in an antique shop in Asheville. White I was photographing it and looking at it, I thought what a wonderful piece to use in a sun room or even a victorian white garden. There are so many things you could do with this piece of the past!
Well I hope I haven't bored you with my "white" obsession. I just think there are so many beautiful white things in the world. Color is wonderful, but sometimes white is just magical! Off to think of some new ways to add white into my home decorating!
My husband, John and I went to Ireland for our 25th Wedding Anniversary in 2004. We had an awesome trip and we will never forget it. We actually got to visit our friends who live in Northern Ireland. We spent 3 wonderful days with them! The picture above was taken when we visited The Ring of Kerry. The beauty of Ireland is just spectacular! If you ever get a chance visit there.
Megan is my oldest daughter. She and Ken were married on April 12, 2008. It was a wonderful ceremony and reception!
