Shades of White

I have many books that provide a wealth of decorating inspiration.  Here's one of my favorites.


In true Victoria style, this book offers many stunningly beautiful photos of rooms and vignettes that display elements of white.  The photos depict a more casual decor which makes achieving a similar look in my home more doable. If you love natural linens, lace, and white ironstone, as I do, you'll enjoy this book.

I'd like to share the latest additions to my collection of white.


Milk glass bud vases, thrifted.



Westmoreland milk glass planter gifted to me by my dearest friend Faye.


Lovely Tiffin milk glass candle holders, ebay.


Ironstone water pitcher, thrifted.


Pretty embossed porcelain teapot, Homegoods.


Porcelain appliqued floral planter, Homegoods.

Thanks so much for visiting me today.  I appreciate your time and your comments.  Have a great week with many blessings.

I enjoyed your post tonight. I have a white bud vase similar to yours that was a wedding present several years ago. Thank you for sharing your pictures. Take care. A Missouri Friend.

I am living vicariously through your white puffy cloud vision of beauty. I LOVE it- but my husbands and dogs could not deal with such femeninity. Thank you for the short, sweet dream.

All your finds are so pretty! My favorite are the white milk candlesticks, and the ironstone pitcher. I have a weekness for those white pitchers. Your photos are really nicely done.

Hello there,

Many thanks for your kind words and prayers last week for dear Pam.

Last week's tea post was so lovely as usual, so ethereal, and elegant in it's all white simplicity!

I just adore your exceptional vignettes that you have recently posted as well! ~ I am enthralled with their white, 'whisperings', of porcelain, milk glass and white floral, loveliness!

Thanks also for taking part with last week's TTTT and also with my
80th, Tuesday Tea For Two.., We always love having you join in the fun with us!..,

Pam was much improved when they left for home last week; I'm delighted to be back in the swing of things once again with my own blogs as well!..,

Cheers and hugs from Wanda Lee

P.S.~ (I will be re-posting about the, May Mini Teapot Swap, for tomorrow).
