Wonderful White Wednesday

Glad to see that everyone is back on schedule this week (LOL). Joining Kathleen over at Faded Charm Cottage for another Wonderful White Wednesday!

I decided to take the doors off of one of my kitchen cabinets. I've loved the "look" for a while now and decided to just go ahead and do it already! It really forces one to "edit" what one hoards stores behind those doors but i really loved the outcome....
...so open...so airy....and now i can admire some of my creamy ironstone plates and pitchers instead of having them hidden......
...my Baby Ben has made its' way from my sun room to this open kitchen shelf...
..a close-up of a small table in my living room. I've embellished it with a vintage metal curtain tieback....(it was a "rusty" red before i painted it...)

...and the "ripple effect" with a paintbrush. I posted this sofa table in an earlier post...decided to paint it a dreamy, creamy white....
...a few things i found at a re-sale shop yesterday.....

...this mermaid was a steal at only 3.99...
...my living room angel adorned in her summer "finery"...
...and i decided to try my hand at those rolled fabric roses.
WARNING: you really CAN get third degree burns from a glue gun! Ouch! But....it was worth it once i saw how these turned out. I think i have a new "obsession."

Happy White Wednesday Mes Amies!
Now go on over to the Faded Charm Cottage for more white inspiration!

Avec Amour,

  8. Everytime I see glimpses into your home, I am just sure that I could live there and love it! It is beautiful and all your white vignettes are so lovely. What I love about the whites is how it causes us to look at the textures of things more.

  10. Oh Michelle,
    Everything looks so beautiful!!! I love the way all of the gorgeous ironstone looks out in the open. You did a great job! Also, I love the fabric roses, they look fabulous!!
    I miss talking with you too. Things are going a bit slow with the move, so I'm trying to check in on my blog as much as I can.
    Now it looks like we won't be moving until August! This is driving me crazy!!
    Have a great weekend my sweet friend.
    Sincerely,
    Melinda
