WHITE AROUND MY HOME

This weeks challenge from Sara of Sadie Olive is white
So here are some touches of white from around my home

Some shells on one of the tables in my entry


Love this little wooden trinket box on that same table


Have to include some roses from my garden


So pretty and creamy white Iceberg Rose blooms


Love the detail on this little cupboard


On the wall in my lounge/dining room


Usually there are candles on this one but as the room is getting a new floor it is bare



In my entry again

Thanks for visiting

Whiter Shade of Pale

This was my Mum's favourite song - for the music not the lyrics.

She played the organ and at her funeral nearly 16 years ago we had an organist play this piece.

I just love your shells and your white mirrows!

Connie said...

Being a young mother in the 60s and 70s that was one of my favorite songs also. I LOVE the whiteness of your white! You can never go wrong with white as far as I'm concerned. That rose is stunning also!!
Smoochies,
Connie

Alison did you collect the shells yourself at a beach? I've never seen an ocean before. Do you live near one? The shells are gorgeous! I love your roses, you must have a really beautiful yard. I'm going to look the song up and listen to it, I don't think I've heard it before. Great whites!!

Beautiful shells. I love the roses too. I realised that there's not a lot of white round here. The kids are too attracted to it so I enjoyed looking at yours.

Love your whites. I love my riot of colors but every so often after viewing some fabulous whites like yours I get the hankering to get several shades of white and just start painting everything!
