I am in a black phase...I have recently painted all my wicker porch furniture black...
I love white too...crisp white shirts, pearls, and white tees...
I have purchased all white Egyptian cotton sheets to replace the threadbare set I have had for over 5 years...these new ones are super wrinkled when they come out of the dryer...they have a high thread count and soft sateen finish ( I briefly wondered if I should iron them!)...they feel silky, soft and cool....love to lay longer in my bed now!
I found a wicker table free for the taking on the boulevard last week...it was in need to some TLC...I promptly painted it black!
My BFF has been on a cream kick, she's painted all her wicker porch furniture cream.
I am hoping that she will allow me to come over and take some photos of her divine porch and post them here.
She came over the other day and gave me this...
A vintage wire birdcage!
She has a larger one that looks more like a house and she painted hers cream and put an ivy in it.
I will be painting it black, and
I aready have an ivy!
I have wrapped the giftaway parcel...just waiting until the June 17th draw date to find out who will be receiving it.
This quote is one of many from the book that I borrowed from the Library.
...the book is a glimpse into the life of a famous Coco Chanel...she apparently had the very first tube of lipstick designed for her personal use. She needed it when she was driving in her car... mindful that her red lips might need touching up! It is chock full of interesting facts and beautiful images.
My friend Janet over at the Gardeners' Cottage loves black and white and I have been reading her blog for months now and I think she's onto something very Zen and elegant.
I really do not run a B&B just have friends who like to stay...
I do leave the "Welcome" mat out all the time...that's the kind of Hostess I am.
I mentioned in a very early post that we had to replace our mat once as the "Welcome" was worn out!
