Margaret from The French Bear had a lovely post on white today and it reminded me of a wonderful magazine article I once saw. The home had been done in every shade of white. How many shades are there, I don't know. But she had them all. Textures were what made the rooms magnificent, furs, candles, big old wooden candle holders, laces, seashells, flowers, dried things, punctuated with gold and silver candlesticks, boxes - if I remember right she even had an ecru colored dog. I wish I'd cut the article out and put in my inspiration book.
Thanks, Margaret, for prodding me to think about some of my favorite things, color.........and white.

God bless you, Diane

Neat post, Diane. We ALL have more white around than we think we do.. AND--there are lots of shades of white. I like the off-white look instead of the stark-white... Some whites look gray, don't they???

Interesting post...

How pretty Diane, I love your viniettes. It makes me want to go through and see what all I have in white, I'll have to post what I find!
I'm trying in vane to send you an e-mail, but it keeps coming back to me. I get them from you, but it won't let me send! So could you send one again? I'm anxious to send your gift!!

Beautiful. I love the textures in whites. They seem to pop of against each other yet staying very harmonious together.
