White Wednesday: Sunroom Whites

I remember about 10 weeks into White Wednesday someone made the comment that they were running out of white things to post about. And my comment to them, in joking was, "oh, just move them around to different places and no one will ever know the difference." I guess I'm following my own advice. I've realized that maybe we might have a tendency to repeat some of our "whites", but it's about how we use them, the season, and the elements in a vignette.



I love white china and ironstone, and of course my sunroom has been the subject of countless posts. But, trying to keep things fresh, I've learned just to "change things up". That's one of the reasons I love to decorate with the seasons.


During the winter this little sugar bowl and creamer held paperwhites, while now they are filled with wild violets that I dug up from my backyard. Amazing how a weed can drive me crazy for 11 months of the year, then for 1 month I'm really lovin' them.


Old and chippy picket fence gate


Several of you asked about my little "garden box" or conservatory that was in the background of my Silver Sunday post. I found it about six years ago at a local antique mall. I know that several people in the area were making them about that time. There are some pretty elaborate and BIG ones around here. I believe Brian and Meloney from the Seed Box made a few that were very large and really amazing!


The fleur de lys are hinges and the top opens at the front.






And here are more photos of some
 of my collection of white pottery.
Hull, McCoy, USA, Haeger, and some unmarked ones.
I just love them with or without plants.


And with or without cats EATing the plants...


Some of you have heard my harrowing story
 about my wicker furniture.
I seem to have a little problem with collecting it.
But what I love about the white is that it becomes a backdrop
for whatever season and color scheme I choose.

(love those yo-yos)


Right now I'm enjoying all the colors of Spring
with vintage floral quilts.


My old white door and mirror
anchor my seasonal wreaths.


Love that morning sun.


Thanks for suffering browsing through another sunroom post.
You know it won't be the last!


Only two more days to enter the GiveAway




Still lovin' White Wednesday,
drop by and say Hi to Kathleen at Faded Charm

love,
Debra

  6. Hi Debra,
    I am in love with your sunroom. You can show it as many times as possible. Everything that you are showing is so pretty. Love the white pitchers with the wild flowers, so pretty all in a row. And the box is 2die4 pretty. I want to tour your entire house and linger for hours.

    You crack me up about eating off the floor. I never thought about just blowin off the cat hair! LOL!!!

    My sister and I could have some fun with you that's for sure!

    hugs

  11. I am just blown away with how you can change it up at the drop of a hat. It would take me half the season just to find what I needed! Yes...I am that disorganized.
    It never looks the same(but always beautiful) and if you hadn't told on yourself...no one would ever know.

  18. That is a brilliant idea, just shuffle it all around!
    And it really does look fresh, I'm seeing things I'm sure I've seen before, and they look brand new.
    Except for the cat.

  19. HI Debra, I can't believe I have never been to your blog before. I just love it. How funny your post was too....I have thought the same thing...just move stuff around or fill it with something different. Or if you have used one shelf one too many times...go in a different room to a different shelf! hahahaha...anyhoo. I enjoyed your post immensely and can't wait to come back for another visit!
    Blessings,
    Debbie

  27. The garden conservatory box is wonderful!!! I was sitting here wondering how I could get one.
    I have all these old windows but my husband and I are not crafty even in a little way. I love your post and the sun room which is something you seem to know just how to decorate for the season.
    Best wishes,
    Lois

  28. OK. That does it, once and for all. I'm moving in. You can just throw me in your sunroom. I'm not dangerous. I'm relatively quiet. I have good references. I'll make you laugh when you visit me or throw some morsels of food my way... off to pack...
