a little white and a big thank you...

Good Morning ~ today I have just a few little whites from my kitchen to share for White Wednesday like this new flour canister I picked up at Pier 1 to match my oil and vinegar cruets... While I was in my kitchen I noticed the simple, wonderful white photo that August will be sharing all month... Some of the photos in this calendar have had too much color for me. This one is just perfect for this wall and ~ um ~ yes, I am still looking for a new phone... If anyone knows where I can get an old fashioned looking wall phone like the ones they used to have in Pottery Barn I would appreciate your help! Speaking of help, does anyone need help in leaving hints for your honey to bring home flowers? Having this might work... Some guys just have to be told what to do!! Now I would like to say a big, belated "Thank You" to Jo-Anne Coletti of Vintage Rose Collection. I won a giveaway that Small Town Living was having and the prize was a collection of her note cards and postcards! When it arrived I hated to open the pretty package... It was just full of beautiful cards ~ images from her inspiring artwork and photos...
I think this one is my favorite... Just look at the back ~ too pretty to write on... I am on the hunt for the perfect vintage or vintage inspired frames so I can hang a few around my nest. Some will go right up on my inspiration board (which is still in my head until Jim makes me one) along with the angel wings and sparkly 3. Thank you so much Jo-Anne! In Jo-Anne's boutique you can find all this lovely stationary as well her original artwork and vintage finds. I wonder, with everyone browsing her boutique and looking at all the treasures over at Faded Charm for White Wednesday, will anyone get anything done today?!

Hi~Your gift is just beautiful. I like how you have the card displayed in an old frog. I have lots, and lots of them(my grandmother loved to make floral arrangements)I'm going to get them out and start using them for displays. Thanks for the idea.:)
Also, have you thought to check on EBAY for the phone or maybe Craigs List??
Thanks for sharing.

Happy WW! Too funny with the flower reminder ~ I just usually buy them for myself, then when Mr. Vintage asks where they came from - I tell him my CONSIDERATE boyfriend bought them for me. Sometimes this backfires. Im heading to your neck o' the woods this week - hope the weather is nice.

The cards really are pretty enough to display - I like how you've used the flower frog!


Sandi said...

Oh what gorgeous notecards! I am going to have to pay her a visit. :) Love your canisters and cruets, your mirror...I love it all!! Happy WW!
PS my hubby used to be very good at bringing me flowers because he drove right past a flower shop on his way to and from he works somewhere else. bummer! :)

Debbie said...

Your card looks perfect in the flower frog! How nice to have won such a pretty gift.
That chalk board over the phone is lovely.

Sue said...

I love the flower frog with the rose book behind it. I guess its the contrast of the two that make them look so good! Happy WW!!

Take care, Sue

Beverly said...

Wonderful post. Your items are lovely. They have some great white wall phones on Etsy. Just look under Vintage Wall phones and you will find several:)

So ooolala! :) And, yes - it IS so much fun to get those little treasures in the mail, especially when they lovingly wrapped with a little note or trinket inside that you just weren't expecting. So sweet... Gotta love Etsy and our sisters in Blogland! lol!

Hi Sandi,
I wish I had a lead on a wall phone for you. Your kitchen looks lovely with all the whites. Very cool canisters and I noticed a framed chalkboard in one of the pictures. Love it and the mirror too.
Have a wonderful weekend!
