A Little Bit of French

Gosh!  I almost forgot about "White Wednesday" over at Faded Charm today.  
When did my life get so busy?
Or has it always been....?

I wanted to share with you my new love.

Yeah, another new love.  
I've got a lot of'em....

I think you've seen her before, but she was just perfect for WW!

My sweetly feminine French body pitcher stands elegantly on the kitchen table greeting me every time I walk into the house.

Even silhouetted against the sunshine outside the French doors, she's beautiful.
I love her shape.

Filled with purpley blue delphiniums in front of my 'other' new love - 
my "Wyeth blue" wicker chair, 
the contrast of the white, blue, and aqua lifts my spirit every time I pass by.

Tinged with age, rusty, worn, and used for many, many years somewhere in the French countryside...

...but I love her still.

Sandy wicker, cloud white furniture, soft gray driftwood, blue delphiniums, 
and an elegant white vintage French body pitcher.

God is good....life is good...and I am blessed.

Blessings to you on a wonderful White Wednesday!

  6. I just love that pitcher. Like how the paint is worn off on the handle because it was used so much.

    I'm going to try to paint some wicker tonight. I already bought plain old boring white paint, but now I might have to go back to Home Depot for something a little more colorful. I'm loving that soft bluish paint on your chairs!

  7. mmmmmm....so beautiful Laurie. The whole room is lovely!!!! I like the side table white...and the basket on the bottom of it. YEPPERS...beautiful.
