~White Wednesday # 134~

I finally got all my Christmas decor packed up and put away and am really liking the simplicity around my home.  I'd like to eliminate so many little things sitting everywhere and have groupings of items instead.

One example is these brown bottles sitting on a mirror on a tiny cabinet between the sink and toilet in our powder room.  The bottles aren't white, but the dried roses I set inside a couple of them and the labels on the bottles are so I figure it counts for a WW post:-)  Enjoy!  xoxo K.

I haven't had much time to play around with my camera yet, so bear with me and my photography skills and remember you can click on any photo to enlarge it.  

Starting in 2012 I am going to feature one blog a month and I chose the ever so sweet Laurie @ Heaven's Walk for my January post. 

I love the simplicity in her home and like to pop in to see what projects she's been working on lately.   Here are a few photos I chose to share of her home.  I hope you enjoy and take a moment to stop by her blog and check out more of what she's been up to lately.

  3. I agree Kathleen,
    I have started eliminating tons of things as I am sure you can see, from my studio
    It just seems all too much. Simple is in :)
    Plus Spring is on its way and that will make Spring cleaning so much easier
    I love your bottles and just think of all the flowers they will hold later this year.
    Take care

  9. As always Kathleen, I love your posts. I've been simplifying a bit too in my home. I have some really big dark bottles like those in your pix's, but wasn't sure what to put in them. I now have an idea! Thanks.

    Take care, Sue

  12. Terrific flowers and bottles Kathleen! I like your idea of grouping things together instead of scattered about. I need to do more of that, too.
    Thanks for featuring Laurie's blog - it is such a favorite of mine, so Jeanne D'Arc Living inspired!

  33. I know how you feel about simplifying! It does feel good after the holiday decor to pare down. I have a brown bottle that would look great with white roses & a label...do you think my dear hubby would mind if I take his grandmother's antique bottle & foof it up a bit?? Hmmm not sure about that!! Thanks for hosting & the lovely pics of Laurie's home.
    Blessings,
    Cindy
