This banner hangs in our living room, it shows what is ablsolutely most important to me. The picture above is actually a card table. When I find things like this I marvel at how once upon a time people took the most ordinary item and turned it into something pretty. love it.
Perfect white contribution... My parents wedding photo, I know I'm bias but They Are Gorgeous! I was lucky enough to wear my moms dress at my wedding. I love my dads white tux, so hollywood!
This is my mom at a young age with my grandparents.
I love finding tureens with or without the lid, don't get me wrong I get way too excited in a public place when the lid is along for the ride but I know I'm gonna fill them with stuff anyway so it's not always necessary.
This cabinet is in my bathroom and was given to me by a good friend because it was too primitive for her. It was gray when I got it and I painted it white. It's extremely heavy and when I hung it up (alone) if someone would have been filming me do so they could have sent it in to a show titled worlds stupidest ideas on tape! I am extremely impatient when it comes to decorating... ok when it comes to seeing my ideas come to fruition... and don't always wait for the help I really need. (another post where I reveal yet another of my idiosincricies, this is really getting out of hand!) Back to the photo, The silver ice bucket holds very important items, my makeup! I am at the delicate age that I DO NOT go out of the house without this stuff unless I am in the mood to really frighten people. I'm just saying.
This last one isn't about the pretties on the mantel, I've shown you those before, it's about trying to pick out the perfect neutral colors to paint over the blue on the wall behind it and the two rooms with the wallpaper I have wanted gone since we moved in. Who would think picking a good white would be so hard? There are a dozen or so more paint chips on the other rooms walls... I don't want any yellow in it and am leaning toward the color of an old crock with the trim a soft white... wish me luck and if you have any favorites I'd love to hear what they are.
I think my children might be thinking this is the latest art project and will be calling on that intervention very soon so the quicker I get this paint picked out the better! There are so many cool white wednesday posts to check out so hop on over to Faded Charm and go visiting, you won't be disappointed. Happy Wednesday ~ Theresa xoxo
p.s. I could have taken a photo of outside my window to show you why my kids have the day off from school and are playing wii at 10:30 in the morning, that is truly a white wednesday, it's sunny and absolutely beautiful, I can't wait to go for a walk later! I gotta remember to take my camera along.
