"The White Event"

This past week-end, on my way home from the Cape, i had the pleasure of stopping into The Wrentham Country Store where Sandi (A Cottage Muse) and Karen (A Shabby Moment In Time) along with other vendors of The Wrentham Country Store were hosting their first ("annual", i hope) "At Home With White Event."

The white-tent-event was filled to the brim with a sea of gorgeous whites.
Hand painted cottage beach signs...


...coverless books adorned with vintage inspired ephemera....


....lots of burlap and ... 

....French inspired lovelies.


Petite painted pots....


...sweet pillows....

...and some of the most beautiful white painted furniture i have ever seen!

The most exciting part of the day.......

...getting to meet THESE awesome Massachusetts bloggers for the FISRT time in person!!
Susan (Evelyn And Rose), Karen (A Shabby Moment In Time), "Moi" and Sandi (A Cottage Muse). And i heard that i just missed seeing Diane (Passionate For White) at the event.

Of course, the second most exciting part of the day was bringing these home....

A chippy basket filled with...


...a rusty old clock...


...matelasse pillow shams...


...a cool canvas tote....

...and a sweet creamy soup tureen!

"Merci" Sandi, Susan and Karen for making me smile all the way home! You are all as sweet in person as you are on your blogs! 

Linking up to Kathleen's Faded Charm Cottage for White Wednesday!

Oh Happy Day!

Avec Amour,

  14. oh Michelle, it looks like it was so much fun and a great selection of whites to choose from, you came home with some beauties.
    How I wish we had some culture and fun events near here to attend. Isn't it funny that everyone stays far far away from this town...
