White Wednesday at Home


On this "White Wednesday" I've got some pictures of my favorite white architectural pieces around my home. I have this obsession, this love affair, this desire to be surrounded by the old chippy white painted architectural elements. I think my love affair with them is because I know if they could talk, they would have great stories to tell. Some pieces may have graced the entrances to beautiful homes while others may have been a part of great old historic buildings. Anyway, here a few of my favorites!












I also love old advertising pieces, like the one above for Norwich Suntan Oil. Many times the old advertising comes with that same patina and appeal as the architectural stuff I love so much! Please be sure to stop by my friend, Kathleen's blog!! She also shares the greatest pictures on her White Wednesday posts, and has a big list of "eye candy" you can go visit as well!!

Thank you my friend! I so, so miss you. It does give me some comfort knowing that you are so happy in Buenos Aries (did I spell it right)? We have a dealer in the third building named from Argentina. She has a really heavy accent but she reminds me so much of you!! Marina is my Marcela fix. . . .
