Fall Whites for November~

Happy November Friends!

Can you believe we are into a new month already?
The holidays will be here sooner then we think.
In the meantime,
I'll take a little white with that color please~~~

Mixing fall whites throughout my home has given it such a soft style.

Of course all white is not for everyone, but mixing it along with color in the decor
makes a pretty statement.

I love the soft touches among my treasures.

Calm and easy, peaceful and  restful.

Do you remember when I visited the shop,
IN HOME formerly Garden Ridge?

Well I was on the hunt for soft and neutral lamp shades.
After scaling the rows and rows of shades,
I turned around a corner to find the perfect shades.
I love tone on tone with white and creams.
These are just what I was thinking of
and the price for both,
was far less then any one shade from a high end department store.

Love the stitch work design on a neutral ground.



See the pillow?
That was an IN HOME purchase too.
They had rows of pillows in all styles.
I found two French styles for much less then even creating them myself would be.



This one above is in my dining room displayed on the chair with tone on tone ticking.
LOVE it~~

Back to the living room, my pottery barn loveseat just  pops
with this Tuscan art piece.


I had more ticking fabric left over from the fabric pumpkins
so I created and added a pillow to my floral chair in this room.


Love ticking with flowers in the same color family.

Autumn is fast becoming a Simply Blessed season
and my favorite time of year.
the above cross stitch was created by a dear friend Stephanie from Angelic Accents Blog, but  she no longer blogs, miss you Steph~~



My fall whites are bringing joy.

Peace and Plenty be yours this season.


Do you add a bit of white with your home treasures?

Thank you for visiting.
See you next time.

~~please note~~
For unknown reasons, it seems my newsletter posts are not arriving to those
that have signed up to receive them by email in their inbox.
I have tried to find the answers to this problem but with no luck.
So as the months go along, I will add the link to the latest newsletter
in a post here and also add the link to my sidebar if you are interested in visiting 
and seeing the latest on the shelves of my etsy shoppe 
Thank you so much.

Good Morning,
Your home is beautiful. The shades you found are perfect! I love the new pillows, too.
Hard to believe the holidays are just around the corner! I love the cross stitch Steph created for you.
I hope you have a lovely weekend.

Celestina Marie, your new lampshades are gorgeous! Love that you were able to find your pillow so inexpensively too, but that always hurts when you are a artist/crafter and know that price competition is so tough out there, doesn't it?
Peace and plenty to you as well. Happy November.

Yes! I love mixing whites with whites and tans. It is peaceful feeling. Your lampshade is beautiful Celeste! The fabrics are gorgeous and you know I like signs. The little embroidered frame is precious. Love it all! Happy November friend!

Hi Celeste!

Everything looks so gorgeous! Your new lampshade is sooo you. I just purchased a new lamp and shade at "At Home", that is nearby us, for our family room. Affordable and looks great! The pillows are perfect with your decor. Sometimes it's nice just to purchase a pillow! My project list looks like the Dead Sea Scrolls right now so I'm up for purchasing.

Have a grand weekend!! Love, Edie

Oh Celeste, that lampshade in all it's textured whites is gorgeous, as is the rest of your home. I am enjoying a variety of home activities today, one of which is NOT cleaning, so unfortunately, I can't even take photos of the lovely whites and grays I have strewn about the house...but hopefully soon I can capture the white in my house! Lovely photos today dear friend. November is HERE!

google and blogger are really acting up these days - not recognizing posts exist in blog rolls and sidebars for hours. throwing in word verification even when the blogger has settings set to "NO!"

i love your white pitcher and white pumpkins. :)

Marcia Pilar said...

I love your whites, my friend. Everything you do has so much love in it.

Penny @ The Comforts of Home said...

Those lampshades are beautiful! I love the French pillows as well. Your home always looks lovely, no matter the season.

Celeste,

Pretty lampshade, wonderful Parisian pillows and I adore ticking on everything and to save money... Win win!

I agree with you mon amie, adding whites into the mix adds a softness. My winter/Christmas is done with whites,creams, Mercury glass and handmade icicles. I refer to it as snow and ice. Faux throws are creams, pillows are softer has a hush falls outside in its winter sleep.

I always enjoy a visit to you Celeste and the beauty that shines through in your home.
xoxo,
Vera

Betsy@ coastal-colors said...

I love your use of white in your decor! It's so serene. Your neutral palette blends with any color. I'm such a huge fan of white pumpkins- you're are lovely! The counted cross stitch is adorable and such a treasure! You found some gorgeous accents at In Home. Sending Autumn blessings to you and your family! Thanks for stopping by and commenting on my blog too- you're a thoughtful friend!

Feral Turtle said...

I am in love with your new lampshade and all the beautiful whites! Our ground is nearly all white too with the snow falling. I almost want to get out the Christmas decor....well almost!

Donna said...

Those lampshades are just gorgeous, Celestina! I think they must have been made for you:) And I love your tres chic Frenchy pillows, too! What great finds! Love all of your whites, I can never get too much cream or white.

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

Love your new pillows and lampshade, Celeste! I looked up a Garden Ridge (or At Home) when you mentioned them last to see if there is one nearby and there is! About 20 minutes away so I printed out the address to go one day. Maybe I'll go this week since you've inspired me with your purchases. : ) Your pillows remind me of some I saw at a store I went to recently called The Flower Factory. They have some great stuff at great prices and I bought a Christmas pillow that looks similar to yours. They were also less expensive than anywhere else you would find similar and close to what it would cast me to make.

Susan Newbigging said...

Celestina, your home is gorgeous! I always so enjoy your photos of all your creative touches that make your home so beautiful!! I love that long candle thingie. I have one similar to that , but just does not have the detail yours has. All I need to do is find me some pretty globes. I do not know why I did not think of adding globes before. You see I always get inspiration when I visit you.

Deborah Montgomery said...

Whites and creams bring such a serene, soft calmness to everything. Your house looks so lovely and inviting dear Celeste. And those lampshades are so perfect. Loved seeing the bit of brown transfer ware under the white pumpkin. I thought you had made the pillows; they look so you.
Hope you're having a lovely weekend. Hugs, Deborah

Julie Marie said...

It all looks so pretty Celeste, and those lampshades are gorgeous!... also love your pillows, especially the one you made out of ticking... your home always speaks softly to me... saying "welcome"... much love, xoxo Julie Marie

Judy at GoldCountryCottage said...

Celestina, I waited for months to receive your posts by e-mail and they finally appeared along with many others. Who said there couldn't be white after Labor Day just didn't know what they were talking about. I absolutely love the lamp shades..I don't know that store. They must not be around our area..Happy Weekend..Judy

Stephanie said...

Yes, it's hard to believe we are now in the month of November - I don't know where this year has gone, but it as certainly flown by!

Your whites are so prett, my friend. If I were to redecorate my home I think I would be tempted to go with white - it's beautiful!

Happy 1st of November, sweet friend! Hugs to you!

Denise said...

So lovely.

Linda @ Life and Linda said...

So very pretty and soothing. I love those shades. I wish I had many houses to decorate them so differently. The time is flying by. Enjoy your beautiful buys. Happy November...xo

cynthia lee designs said...

Love your lampshades and the pillows. We have a Garden Ridge store about an hour away. I'm guessing that they have changed their name to At Home too. I haven't been there in a long time...thinking I might need to make a trip there after seeing your awesome goodies.
hugs,
Cindy

Love and miss you!

Just BEAUTIFUL!!!

Castles Crowns and Cottages said...

Oh so beautiful is your white world...Celeste, thank you so much for taking the time to come to visit me! I had fun with this post. It came from a real life situation in my classroom, and as I started to write, search for music and find photos, it was reliving that moment once again. Isn't art wonderful?

GOD BLESS YOU my friend! Anita

Janet Bernasconi said...

Hi Celestina!

How are you? So sorry for not visiting you sooner. My parents moved recently and I have been up to my ears helping them. Your taste is exquisite. White is so elegant. Love that lampshade! You match everything so perfectly. You really do. Thanks for sharing and thanks for visiting me Celestina. It makes me happy when you pop in to say hello.
Have a wonderful week,
xxoo

Celeste...Guess what...For the first time in months you showed up in my in box like you used to???? I wonder if some change was made and if it has anything to do with your email news letters? OK, now the good stuff, I love the little white pumpkins and the pillows, I have found too that sometimes it is cheaper to buy pillows than make them. Thank you for your kind words about my kitchen redo...I know it was not amazing, but OK, I was so wondering what you would think...Thank you!

I can see we are thinking alike with lots of white this fall. I just worked on pictures for my next post with lots of tone on tone whites and creams. Hope to get it up by Friday.

I love the new lampshades and those pillows! What a great find. I can't get enough of those white pumpkins either, and I intend to leave them out through Thanksgiving :)

Have lovely week!
Blessings,
Deborah
