vintage white...

Welcome to
White Wednesday!

I love old pieces of architecture.
They are what make these old house so unique.
I love to collect doors, windows and other pieces of these old ladies.


From the inside looking out

Details that I just love...



As much as I love to paint white
there is just something about
chippy, vintage white


Especially, with a touch of pink added




The vintage white spandrel
between our family room and kitchen


My downstairs powder room door




Drop on by Faded Charm to see more wonderful white.

Thanks, Kathleen!

Very charming Rene, with all those architectural pieces. I admire all that too, and your home certainly shows a lot of beautiful pieces. I only dream of having a older home like yours!

Happy Whites-

Beautiful...so soft and pretty. I love vintage white as well but Mr.FV just likes white. I'll have to work on him a bit...just painted a dining room set and I want to age it..its too white. He wants to leave it white.

So beautiful! Makes me want all white in my home. But with 4 kids and a chocolate lab - I don't think it will work.

Oh Rene, I love your house. I feel so blessed to have seen it in person. I could move in so quick it would make your head spin ( but I promise I won't)These images you shared today are beautiful. You and your husband have made a treasure here.
Smiles,

You really have the most beautiful white pieces everywhere. Those old doors and all the intricate details including the lace trimmed cloth draped about...I would never think to do the things you do. LIke the doors...who knew you can hang those old doors in your home and use them!?! I've seen old doors used for decorating but not used as an actual door in your home. Now you've got me thinking!!! You are lovely. xo Fairmaiden

Just a little something from Judy said...

It calms my heart just to visit your blog. The white linens, old wood and the tiny crystals...it is all so beautiful, feminine, and peaceful. Thank you!

I appreciate you introducing us to another fabulous blog, too.

Hi thanks for visiting me. I haven't had a chance yet so read the White Wednesday posts or the 2nd time posts. A crazy week here. But thanks for coming by. I did look at your other blogs...wish I could come and shopt. I love your WW post. Lovely. I love the white door. About my canisters I was originally going to paint them white but the sewing room is changing so I guess they will stay stained for a while.
Thanks again for visiting.
Come back any time.
Blessings,
Sherry

Hey Renee!

Just got back from Boise. The family and I spent some time going to thrift stores and a few antique shops. The Shabby Cottage is right around the corner from my BIL and was I ever tickled to find your space there. I totally forgot that you had a space there and as I was looking at all your cute things I said out loud. "I know her!" We had a great time, but good to be home again!


Hugs,

Lisa

You do white so beautifully and I too love those doors. I love how you have the lace and the fabric trimmed in lace. So pretty. I always get so inspired visiting.
How is your hubby doing? Give him a hug from blogland.
Blessings to you
Becky
PS...I had a great month at the new shop. You can see it on my other blog www.thegirlsofsummerhouse.blogspot.com. It is so much fun...gosh I am rambling...guess I just needed to catch up with you
