the texture of white...

For today's WW I'm including some of my favorite things...
the texture
of lace, appliques', and ironwork.
It's what makes white warm and homey.
Not cold and sterile.

to all of you who have given me support
in my give-away and etsy shop.
Now, I'm going to be really busy trying to get around
to visit all of my new and old friends.
Etsy is going really well...I hope I can keep up.
I have so much more to list...
Be sure and sign up on the post below if you haven't already.
(There has been a bit of confusion regarding leaving an email on etsy-follow the link
on the right side where it says contact)
And in the meantime
be sure to check out all of the other gorgeous whites.

Everything is FABULOUS here! love the mosaic. I am having trouble with your button for the giveaway. I copy the link and paste it and then when I go back to it, it signs me out of Google! it's the absolute STRANGEST thing! So in the meantime I am going to delete the "link" but keep the picture and post your blog name. Hopefully I can figure it out.
Hmmmmmmm . . .

But you are right about the lace and linen

Girl your photography is so amazing! If one didn't love white (which I do) it sure would turn their head! The combo of textures is wonderful. By the way...I'm a little lax in the blogging hoppin lately, but congrats on you Etsy shopp! I am hoping to open mine on the 1st...we'll see. But am so please to know it is going well for you!

Sares said...

Everything is so beautifully feminine, shabby and white! Your photos are gorgeous!

Faded Charm said...

I so agree with you. Depending on how you display your whites they could be very stark looking. You always do a fabulous job. Thanks for playing along and I'm so glad your Etsy is going well.

Take care,

Very very pretty. Love your contrasts in texture with white. It all looks scrumptious together. We got some "new white" this morning ~ a bit more snow! It is pretty coming down, wish I could curl up on the couch with a cup of tea, but alas, off to work I go. :) :) Blessings to you,



Your whites are charming and divine , beautiful to gaze upon.

Crystal said...

Everything is just absolutely gorgeous here. I just found you from Rustic Victorian. I am so happy to have hopped over. I will definitely visit your etsy.
Have a blessed day.
