Hello! Here I am at last - I had intended to write a post a bit sooner today, but this morning I stitched a project and this afternoon I spent idling around with an old college friend so ...here I finally am! I wanted to write about white because although I adore colour, and mixing colours, I also love the plain, cool, peacefulness of pure white.... and the pop of other colours against it. (The little white bear here is from my Cross Stitch Keepsakes book).
I love lots of plain white china to eat and drink from, to contrast with the bright floral and spotty mugs, jugs and teapots I also love. These big white cups and saucers are a bit like cafe ones....
This is a teeny little vintage coffee cup from a set my mother in law gave me - and kept for special times.
Everything looks nice in a white bowl - especially these white mini eggs - one of them is cracked so I'll just have to eat it...
I love this little white birdie on the alarm clock - so perfect and perky and well, bird-like!
I absolutely love paintings in white frames and I absolutely love Janet Bell's colourful pictures - this one is Harbour By Day, the first one of Janet's I bought years ago, and it is hanging in my studio above the mantlepiece which has a changing collection of bright things I collect - against a white wall. You can find Janet Bell's Gallery here.
And finally I must have some white flowers, mustn't I? I often have a vase of lilies in the hall - they brighten up the corner and scent the air as you go in and out, as well as wafting scent up the stairs....
Thank you for visiting me here and for your sweet comments, I do so enjoy hearing from you. Have a lovely week, enjoy the lengthening days and the spring promise in the air...see you soon. x
WELCOME to my blog, where I share things I create, things around my home and garden, things I do and things I love. Thank you for visiting! Please don't be shy - leave me a comment, I'd love to hear from you. x
