and I have not posted on this theme for ages.
While one might expect snow and all it's pure whiteness
we are experiencing a very torrential Wet Wednesday!
Here in The Humble Bungalow we love to give gifts
and at Christmas, especially to our children.
It's a habit that goes way back and one that gives us great joy.
The gifts needn't be expensive nor do they need to be new.
I love finding second hand Mid Century Modern pieces...
this year I was able to source
a Dansk teak tray,
a Festivo tall art glass candlestick,
a set for four vintage linen place mats and napkins in their original unopened package
a matte white Rosenthal embossed vase
a Catherine Holm black and white covered casserole dish.
Our adult children collect, live with, and use mid century furniture and accent pieces.
Look at these shiny sterling babies!
they look like they were made for each other!
I love the elongated form
thank you son and DIL!
My sister gave me this soft and lovely Pashmina,
Mother received one as well
and Sis bought herself one too.
It will be funny when we all show up wearing them together on one of our lunches!
I snapped up this interesting vest in charcoal with black accents.
(like my sister and Mother I usually find one thing for myself)
Lovely daughter knows how much I love Vintage White Ironstone....
a trio of small oval platters
some hand crafted magnets...
lovely daughter is on an economy kick right now
she found the most amazing treasures in her rounds
and those lucky enough to be recipients were thrilled!
I look quite tired here
and I am!
I find that after Christmas day and dinner it takes me a few days to rest up.
I am loving the Chanel Triomphal that I bought for evening
here it is making an appearance in the daylight
in an attempt to add some energy
Lip colour is the one of the quickest ways for me to perk up
besides drinking lots of Perrier.
What your Wednesday White or Wet?
