A BASKET OF WHITES.....

I am joining in the fun over at
for WHITE WEDNESDAY
**
I am always looking for pretty ways to change my dining table up
and I saw this lovely idea on .....*shhhhh.....a blog the other day.
I am so so sorry I can't remember who did this first but
if you are the one, just let me know and I will add
CREDIT WHERE CREDIT IS DUE.
:))
*
I liked the idea so much that I just had to try it, too..
*
I have so much fun with all my WHITE dishes...
some vintage IRONSTONE...
others just....pretty pieces in WHITE.
**
The white double handled pitcher, holding the flowering branches,
is a thrift find that I stumbled across not long ago.
No markings on the bottom...
I just liked the shape..
**

.....and the STRAWBERRIES....
I JUST LIKE THE TASTE !!
Seems I can never get enuf Strawberries..
and....
they ALWAYS make the prettiest pictures !
**
HAPPY MIDDLE-OF-THE-WEEK...and lots of LOVE !!

BJ, love your blog! Also, your white dishes in the basket are so sweet! The doily hanging on the side adds just the right touch, and the colors in the flowers and fruit make it homey!

Very cute idea! I am just starting to get in on the whites. I mostly have colored dishes. Quite a few pink depression. While getting my Easter tablescape planned, I am finding lots of pretty things. But, I really like your white dishes in the basket!
