White, garden statue, and shades of cream and an uh oh...

I was so inspired just typing in on google "white decor, white decorating".... and the pictures that came up got to me. This little tool box was one filled with sweet little white creamers and pitchers.

This is in my front room...I have white couches (a little worn after 3 teenagers) and white shutters on all the walls

My front porch from last summer...now the house is even longer since we've added on for my parents. Pictures to come.



By my back door...did I mention I love vintage stoves and refrigerators...this one at the end of the picture holds ice cold sodas during the summer months for the kids when they are home and swimming.


This is a lovely bedroom I would love to have some day....

Oh and if my patio could only look like this....love the topiaries...



More shutters for the outside....I need some more...hubby said I had enough...I told him I thought he had enough chickens and farm animals...funny thing...he didn't say anything more...


I SWOONED AT THIS NEXT PICTURE!
More white goodness....I'm not sure where I found this...I apologize but I just had to show it. Love the little chandelier, frame, statue, rose picture, cloches...oh I could go on and on.



My little farmhouse now with my whites, and creams, and textures....











Brought my little angel inside...it was too cold outside anyhoo....
OH MY GOSH! IS THAT BIRD POOO ON THE SIDE OF HER SWEET HEAD? HOW EMBARASSING....

YEP THAT'S WHAT IT LOOKS LIKE....I'M DYING RIGHT NOW...I CAN'T BELIEVE IT...MY POOR LITTLE ANGEL!

Oh Debbie, Let me wipe the drool off of my face :)I just love all of your vintage white. I agree with you about the patio with the topiaries. I will have to go back and look at this post some more to take it all in.

I love how you mixed your photos with other photos of white things. Such pretty stuff. I got tickled about how you and hubby went at it. Sounds just like my husband when he says I think you have enough of something and I mention his car hobby and he shuts up.

I'm loving all your whites today. Especially drawn to all the shutters. I use them to decorate with inside also. Love them!

Thanks for joining in today and have a wonderful WW.
