You got to have the "White Stuff", Baby!

You gotta have the "White Stuff"! 

The cream ware...white roses...white linens... and faded white paint.....

Notice how lovely this pretty teapot mixes with the other creamy whites.

Here is a view from our sunroom.

 The white wicker lamp came to us from a dumpster dive many years ago. 

The huge white window once graced a hardware store in a town nearby. We built our room around this window.

There are linens to be found at just about every flea market....sometimes you have to sort thru various and sundry piles.

 OxyClean works well to clean them. Go easy on the bleach....they are often fragile.

The cake plate below was made by gluing a plate to a candlestick.

 Lots less pricey than buying the ridiculously expensive cake plates!

See.... plate + candlestick= cake plate

Use silicone to glue the plate to the candlestick.


This chair is in our sunroom.

 We found it flea marketing in Strasburg with my parents. Twenty-two dollars!

This gorgeous white tureen is a little cracked.....

made it affordable.....

 look good with all your other things
 or they can stand on their own beautifully.

They are timeless and affordable.

 When you keep your eyes open you can find some fantastic buys just about anywhere.

 Walmart, Target, Michael's, T.J. Max all carry some wonderful selections.

Flea markets and Thrift stores carry charmingly chippy collectibles! [notice the alliteration]

So you see? You gotta have the "white stuff" , Baby!
