Welcome Winter Whites

When you enter my cottage home, you are greeted by my hand painted white curio cabinet in the entry.

The color is a shade of antique cream and the same
shade I used on the kitchen cabinets when I painted those
last spring.
I have loved this piece for 20 years and have filled it in many different ways and with many unique treasures.
Presently, I am so enjoying my pretty whites on display.
 With springtime on the way, it is light, fresh and reflective.
Above the curio, on the wall,
 I display my cross collection and the word faith,
which always stays aglow from the light coming through the window.
Inside are special treasures from family and friends.
Great Grandpa's pocket watch in a white base cloche, still set on the time he passed away.
It will forever be kept at this time.
Behind is a vintage platter along side a pretty white creamer.
I love the tones and different shades of white.
Hand Painted white birds sit atop a vintage white cook book of Miss Gimble's desserts and sweet winter plate just behind.
Small sewing drawer filled with white roses
 on a book box with vintage platter.
Beloved white pitcher and bowl,
hand created by my dear mother in 1980.

Italian made pitcher with a black and white cow.
Love this treasure!
Favorite treasure from a friend.

A reminder of the blessing
of special friends.

Near the bottom is a big eyed owl, Eiffel  tower
and many other sweet treasures.

Thank you for stopping by~
Wishing you a great weekend.

~Be Blessed~
