~White Wednesday # 137~

I'm posting a little early today since I won't be home until late tonight.  It's down to the last few days before the Junk Salvation Show and I'm frantically trying to do all those last minute things.

I still don't have a camera, so I thought I'd share some eye candy from my "Chippy Whites" board on Pinterest today. 

These are all photos of some great architectural elements of old houses.  If you like this kind of stuff, please stop by my booth this weekend where I will have some chippy whites of my own.  Enjoy!  xoxo K.  

I love all the little details of an old house.  You walk up to the front porch,  ring the bell and turn the old doorknob.   You never know what you might find once inside.

~White Wednesday # 136~

Well the snow is all gone and we survived all the flooding, but it's still dreary and wet.  Typical weather in the PNW...unfortunately!  I found a white sheer ruffled curtain panel at the Goodwill last time I was in and decided to put it in the window behind my clawfoot tub in my bathroom to let more light in on these dark winter days.  

I also found a few old apothacary bottles at a local store recently.  I just love these old bottles, don't you?  The labels on them are still in great condition with a wonderful patina.  These will be added to my collection on a shelf (as soon as the walls get painted and the shelf is hung).  Enjoy!  xoxo K.

My camera isn't working correctly and I'm going to need to send it back, so I will be without one until I can get a new one.  Between that and getting ready for the Junk Salvation Show, I won't be posting much.  Hopefully I'll have some great photos to share of the show.  Remember you can print the coupon below to get $1 off admission:-)

~White Wednesday # 135~

Winter has been in full force at my house these last couple days.  Blizzard conditions with snow, wind and temps not getting much above 32 degrees....ugghhh!  I apologize for getting this post up later than usual, but we have been without power all day long. 

I will leave you with a few photos that I took of the view I see out my french doors onto my patio of my weatherd statue.  Enjoy!  xoxo K.

And this last one is of a sweet little angel with a dusting of snow looking so chilly:-)

~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.

~Adding Texture~

I got some decorating projects done over the holiday break and one of them was rearranging this shelf I have in my office.  I loaded it up with books and coral with a couple clocks thrown in. 

I love all the different textures.  I'm sharing a few closeup photos and can share more of this room after I paint the walls(which in my opinion is not fun) and a couple pieces of furniture.  I'm still going to be sharing areas that I am working on in my home throughout 2012 in hopes that it keeps me motivated to finish all the rooms that I'm wanting to redecorate.  I hope you'll follow me in my journey.  Enjoy!  xoxo K.

~White Wednesday #133~

My paperwhites and hyacinths have been blooming and I love the fresh look they bring to my kitchen.  I think this is the look I'm going for in the 2012:  Clean and fresh!

I'm finishing up packing away all my Christmas decor today.  It doesn't seem like it's ever up long enough to really enjoy, but once it's all taken down again, I like the uncluttered look and am in the mood to change things up a bit. Enjoy! xoxo K.

My paperwhites got so tall and kept falling over, so I just cut the blooms and put them in a vase to enjoy.

I'm really looking forward to what everyone has to share this year and to also finish up the many projects around here so I have lots to share with you as well.  I recently started a Pinterest account where I can find tons of inspiration.  Unfortunately, I think I've found one more thing to take up all my time:-)
