dreaming in vintage whites...


Well...I finally did it! I've been wanting to start my own blog for quite a while. I sit at my computer every morning with my coffee (and, yes, many other times during the day too), "meeting" so many creative people, reading their thoughtful posts and looking at their beautiful photos, all while learning, laughing and becoming totally inspired. I've waited long enough to join in on all the fun!

White Wednesday is my favorite day in blog land. I figured what better day than today to start my blog so I can share some of my favorite vintage whites!


I just love the cover of this little booklet...just perfect for Valentine's Day! Nestled in with my favorite candlestick and old heater grate along with a newer piece and a sweet little Valentine box I got on Etsy...this is a perfect vintage white vignette for any day!



I also love this little vanity collection...especially the old Nina Ricci bottle, it was my Mom's!


I got this lovely little vintage white book from the shop where I have a space (more on that real soon). It's titled "Bring Flowers". I've been leaving it all over the house...do you think he'll get the hint?



I've enjoyed joining in on White Wednesday hosted by Faded Charm. Let me know what you think of my first post!

Thanks for stopping by!
P.S. Thanks to Sandi from Wayside Treasures...she helped me figure out how to link!!

What a nice posting. Luv your teacup very much. I have a passion in collecting teacups especially with the theme pink roses.

I love your trunks! It's so funny because trunks are on my list to look for at garage sales and thrift stores so I can paint them white too and stack them. I just love that look! Am a new follower! =)
