Sure glad your sign has touches of black. It would be hard to see shabby white lettering on a shabby white sign, especially for old eyes.
Luv the touches of black!

Mmmm...love me some black, especially with ecru, taupe or tea-stain colors. The vintage metal numbers are beautiful to me.

I am incorporating black with my whites in my own home these days. I love the way it works so well together and balances with so many of my vintage items...silver, old sheet music, crystal. It all just seems to go together seamlessly. And...I LOVE black and white graphics!

Just the right amount of black to make a statement. Looks great! Love that dress form:)

Love this - all of it - love this!

I've been bringing in a bit of espresso toned items into my home and am loving the richness they offer up to my typical cream and muted yellow tones.

That stop watch with a ribbon bow. um. is that for sale? if so, i'm interested. seriously.

Black just makes the white pop out even more. Very visually appealing.

Wonderful post Rene,
You know you are the best at putting together these vignettes. I think I like Black Friday best of all the parties. White Wednesday too. But those 2 represent all I love! Lisa
