The "White" Stuff!



Hey Everyone,
 it looks as if a good portion of blogland is under a heavy blanket of white, today.
We probably have about 12 inches here and more is falling.
We dodged the ice and thankfully the power outages that usually come with it.



So today, I wanted to share some "whites" that I put together to stay in keeping with not only the snow, but add a few sprinkles of hearts for February, our month of Romance.


Remember my chairs that we used for our sunset lakeside dinner last fall?
They've found a spot in the Living Room
but today one is holding some of my ironstone and linens.



I've realized these are of Gustavian (Swedish) design.
Definitely old, but recaned. I found them for 13 dollars apiece.
I know!!!!!




love the carving on the back



We went to the Springfield City Wide Garage Sale last Sunday,
and I picked up a few pieces of ironstone to add to my platter collection from England.

This one is the same from the top photo and is Johnson Brothers.
It's in pretty good shape but has a small chip on the rim.
I have a stack of these fancy scalloped edge English serving platters on my kitchen counter.

(vintage crocheted heart I've had since forever)

This little pitcher was given to me recently by my Mother-in-law.
It belonged to her grandmother.



This Meakin platter has been used hard...
it has a small crack, and lots of pitting,
and was definitely a workhorse.
It weighs 4 pounds!!!



I found this lovely linen runner there too. 







a little taste of winter here in SW Missouri


Right outside my sunroom door on the deck








...and speaking of sunrooms,
If you haven't been by to visit Jill this morning,
we're hanging out on the porch!



I'm linking to Kathleen for White Wednesday




Stay warm and snuggly!
Happy February!
love,
Debra
