White Wednesday #22

The Mister and I went on a date the other night to Half-Price Books.  I could spend about 900 years perusing the Home Decor and Crafting section, but that night I just spent about an hour.  I scored two of my all time favorite books, both by Victoria.  Bedrooms and At Home with White.  Both are a tribute to the timeless, classic look of all things white, chippy, cottagey, beachy, and vintage. 

At Home with White was published in '96, and none of the pictures are 'out of date'.  I was hard pressed to find anything to denote when the book was made as I was drooling over each image.  This book was my first love, the first time I ever poured over each page in a book a dozen times, the first time I said "THIS" is my look.  I checked it out of the library more times than I can count, always renewing it.....forgot about it for a bit.....then rediscovered it in the last few years and fell in love all over again.  I never tire of the vignettes, the lushness, the simplicity. 

The following are just pictures I took with my camera of the images in the book as it sat in my lap, so they're blurry and weird, but you get the idea.  Bliss.  Bliss. Bliss.


Happy White Wednesday everyone.  Thanks again to Kathleen of Faded Charm for hosting every week so we can get our fix on white everything.

Perfect white post! Love it all. I'm not too at home with white...as in walls and furniture, but I LOVE old white accents.

I couldn't pull it off decorating all white, but I LOVE it! So calming and peaceful.
