Pure & Simple

Hello everyone,
 I am glad you stopped by on this sunny but crisp winter day. I do love how the days are starting to be noticeably longer especially on a sunny day.
  As I was baking today in my warm sunny kitchen I was planning my little post for you today and then ended up doing something simple instead. I will save my other plan for another day.

Since it was a nice sunny day after my baking I decided to have a little snack in the sun room as the sun had warmed it up nicely.


You might be surprised that my snack today includes milk instead of tea! 


But wait- isn't White Wednesday coming up?
and a glass of milk does go nicely with my sugar cookies.

 Well, there you have it - pure & simple!

I will be signing up with Kathleen today for White Wednesday over at Faded Charm. There will be lots of lovely whites to see over there.

Thank you for visiting me

              &;

Have a great day!

Carolyn

Carolyn, You make the color white look so elegant :) :) :) Oh, that black/white baby photo is really sweet. Was that you when you were itty bitty? My dad, I have some of his baby photos...and it's funny to think of him so tiny, because he's a really tall guy!!! He also has his little white leather baby shoes hanging hear his desk with the original laces!!! Have a lovely week. Love and hugs from Oregon, Heather :)

Hi Carolyn, I stopped by to officially follow your blog, it is about time since I stalk it regularly. (hope you don't mind) Over time I noticed we share a love for red and white transferware. I just adore all the inspiration, and stunning photos. Thank you not only for following, but for the kind comment on my recent post. Your latest images with the tulips are beautiful. I am so happy it's tulip season. And it seems to be universal. Which is wonderful. Love the sweet white baby shoes. A charming touch. Hugs from California, tami
