FAVORITE WHITES


I am posting just a few of my favorite WHITES...
Please stop over at FADED CHARM COTTAGE for WHITE WEDNESDAY

I find myself searching HI and LO for more and more and more WHITE DISHES...

I'm pretty sure IT IS A SICKNESS....


It is spreading, as I write, all throughout the
LAND OF BLOG....

ONE more plate
One more platter
ONE more pitcher....sugar bowl...cup...ANYthing....WHITE
*
One of my favorite pieces is this ironstone GRAVY BOAT..
I could not believe that I found it in a box of other dishes, in a thrift store,
for a dollar...
WHO would get rid of something this cute ??
**
I think, sometimes, when younger ones are cleaning out a grandmother's belongings,
this sort of thing just SLIPS THRU THE CRACKS...
I'm afraid someday, they will think back and be so so sorry they didn't keep it...
Well....all I can say...THEY LOST IT...
I FOUND IT...
and
FINDERS KEEPERS !! :)) just kidding...
*


I just had to include this photo FROM THE NET....
Now isn't this just about the cutest SLIPPER tub you've ever seen...
I would just LOVE to have one like it but it would HAVE to be
IN FRONT OF A STONE WALL
or it wouldn't be nearly this cute...right??!!
**♫"One the wings of a snow white dove....
HE sends HIS pure, sweet love...
A sign from above......
On the wings of a dove...♪♪♫

HAVE A BEAUTIFUL REST OF THE WEEK...
I love you all..

It is just SO WONDERFUL to know that we are "NOT ALONE" with our obsessions!!! Oh BJ I have a similar tub setting in my bathroom, stonewall and all,hehe... The tub is big enough for two SO your feet would NOT have to STICK OUT. BUT I'm not posing for a picture in it, hehe... I've been thinking of doing a scape in there, Hmmmm! now I'm a "Thinkin"!!!
I TOO LOVE,LOVE,LOVE all the white dishes, Remember my Mrs Blanding clip with the painters, to quote her, "Not antiseptic white BUT nothing but white"(or something like that). I do like off white...
HUGS, Donna

Donna@Conghaile Cottage said...

OK BJ I looked it up and HERE it is, MRS BLANDING TO THE PAINTERS....
"Now the kitchen is to be white. Not a cold, antiseptic hospital white. A little warmer, but still, not to suggest any other color but white." I did have the antiseptic right,hehe!

It is contagious...I was so excited when I found the one's I wrote about today at that estate sale Saturday.

I think the young ones throw out things because they only want new!

I love all of your white dishes. I didn't have one single white dish until blogging. Now I have a ton. Funny huh!!! Yours are all fabulous. Hugs, Marty

That is the cutest gravy boat I have ever seen! Loved the movie that featured that tub.

I'm a little behind on blog visits again. Been so busy with my honey and his kids with so many activities! I'm loving it. And I love all those white dishes, so versatile, so crisp and cool too for summer, and always elegant. My sweetie and I found a coffee table at Goodwill this weekend for only $6, and we painted it white. Now he has something pretty for his home. Gotta love white!

Kathleen said...

I agree, when cleaning out my mom's house we let so much go! But it was overwhelming! There are so many things I wish I kept.
I am typing fast so dh doesn't start yelling about the music!
Lovely whites, BJ! I am shower girl myself, but the tub is cute!

Theresa said...

Love the header picture dear BJ! All of your whites are soooooo pretty! What is it about white, fresh and clean? Yep! Don't 'cha just love it when you find a treasure in a box that nobody wanted and it turns out to be perfect for you? ME TOO! Enjoy your day my friend! Have the sweetest day ever!

Something Nice and Pretty said...

I tried to follow you but it says I already do so why haven't I been getting your post? Oh well, got to love blogger!

I love that gravey boat what a find that was! I just sold all my red everyday dishes and bought the white dinner plates at Dollar Tree, bowls from Target and the salad plates from Big Lots...a very neat shade of whites they make together.

So beautifully white and love your music. That roll of twine beside the gravy boat is quite pretty.
Thank you again for sharing your treasures.

Elizabeth and Gary said...

Hi BJ,
Your whites are so pretty.. I love that movie (Holiday)where Cameron Diaz and Kate Winslet exchange homes for Christmas. I love the tub, but I think I wouldn't look as cute as Cameron....LOL.
Have a sweet day as sweet as you.
Big hugs~Elizabeth

Rebecca said...

I love the tub pic-love to do more of that. Your bathroom lines are so pretty!

Genie Robinson said...

BJ....Thanks for visiting my blessings blog. I sent you an email sharing with you my feelings about my terrible embroidery skills. I do much better with the quilting and the knitting. I love your blog, and the post with all the white and then the RED strawberries is great. It was so nice hearing from you.

Hugs,
Genie

I love all of your white. Don't worry if it is a sickness, there are so many that have it we don't mind. I have to say I just think the picture of you and your husband on your 50th is the best picture, I love the casual pose.

Kathleen Grace said...

I am about to join the crowd, I have been searching for some white dishes and havent found the right ones yet. They look so beautiful with everything!

Atticmag said...

Great images but those eggs! What a beautiful thought to include them. Of course, they are white.
