White Wednesday

Hello Everyone,
   It is another cloudy damp day here today but inside it is cozy and dry so when I think of all the troubled areas around the world I will not complain.
 Anyway,as I was thinking of what to post today I decided it would be a good day for White Wednesday so I gathered some of my whites together to share with Kathleen at Faded Charm.
   The photo above is one of my favorite shot of the dining area of our kitchen-I love that sunshine coming in through the bay window!
A corner in our sunroom.
Astrantria in our garden-taken yesterday.
One of my favorite teapots that came from Winner's a few years ago. It has no markings on the bottom but I am pretty sure the box said it was made in England.
A lacy linen laundry day.
Some of my favorite whites.
I love this shot of our garden taken last month.
We had a day at the beach a couple of weeks ago.The first good beach day that we are free- I am heading back to the beach, as now that we are into August I realize I have to grab those days when we can.We have so many beautiful beaches close by and I love that we can still find beaches that we have all to ourselves.
This photo of the viburnum snowballs was also taken weeks ago.I am excited to be going to a photography boot camp from Holland Collage next week with my sister-in law.It should be an interesting day and I hope to  get a few good tips.

 Thank you Kathleen at Faded Charm for hosting White Wednesday.

I hope you have a lovely day!

Have fun at 'boot camp' we will be

I love your beach photos and where did you find that umbrella with the white sheer going around it?

Hi Lisa,
Thanks for visiting today.The umbrella is separate from the netting.
The tent netting came from a thrift shop in New England a few years ago- a nice find!

Take care,

It is so green there and beautiful. We are burning up this summer. It was so nice to get to visit your post.

Hi Lisa,

What beautiful images. I especially like you laundry hanging outside. Nothing can beat the fresh airy scent of laundry dried outside. I am from Europe so it surprises me when I see laundry drying in the Summer wind.

All my best Heidi

Hello, Carolyn! Oh, everything is so charming and sweet and summery. I love the linens on the line and of course the photos of you on the beach. Just a wonderful escape.

We are also having many cloudy days this summer. But as you say, we are not complaining.

Hope all is well and thank you again for all this loveliness! – g

I'm drooling over all the beautiful whites! I had to take a second look at your bloom (astrantia?) because, at first, it looked like a round rhinestone pin (vintage of course)... wow!

These have to be amongst my favorite photos of your home! From the beautiful dining room to your beautiful sandals, you look like a true lady!
