WHITE WEDNESDAY

This week's installment of WHITE WEDNESDAY features random photos from my archives and select quotes from one of my fav books on living with white~~AT HOME WITH WHITE by Atlanta Bartlett.


White has the appeal of the nothingness that is before birth, of the world in the ice age. Wassily Kandinsky


For those colors which you wish to be beautiful, always first prepare a pure white background. Leonardo Da Vinci


White... is not a mere absence of colour; it is a shining and affirmative thing, as fierce as red, as definite as black... G.K.Chesterton



Renoir said once that nothing was so difficult, and at the same time so exciting, to paint, as white on white. Ambroise Vollard

I just foun you & LOVE your blog. I entered your give away & will post about it on my Blog so others can find you. Also, I added you to my sidebar so I can keep up with what is going on in your world. LOVE your treasures. And I see you are coming to Round Top. Some of my friends & I will be there too. Hope we can hook up & meet in person. I love some of the items from your post about the Antique store in your area. I would love to know the price on the lace (looks like maybe curtains) & the brown & white dishes. Do you happen to know? Do you go often? Do they have a website? Have a great week.
