This is better than coffee (Ok maybe not, but almost).
Ok moving on to my third favorite, That would be spring green. This color reminds me of green grass. It is just so calming and feels fun.
This piece has a coat of green and never complains about it.
Green maybe the color of jealousy, but I think the other chairs are really green with envy....
My second favorite spring time color is light or sky blue. Of course this is the color of sky and water. This color is all things spring and goes right into summer. This little sky blue table is fun and useful to me with a stack of white towels and washcloths. The little silver starfish is in good company in my bath. This French blue chair is dressed to hit the water. I bet you she is not that blue. (I love the detail on this chair).
Even though these colors are great, my first love is the color white (as if you didn't know that one). Have a good weekend.

Next I spy white slipcovered chairs and a sofa. I have been waiting impatiently to put on my spring/summer slipcovers, and bring down the new desk chair. This desk chair replaces my green Swedish styled one.
Lets see I spy a white floor lamp, this one also replaces my blue floor lamp.
Next I see white cherub candleholders. I have loved these two since I first saw them, they just look so Shabby Chic.
Lastly I spy my favorite flowers, white roses. I hoped you enjoyed playing and for more wonderful white pieces go to
Hooray spring is coming.

See I already poured myself a cup waiting for you.
We can split this delicious looking cheesecake and enjoy the roses, while we talk.
Grab a seat and lets have some fun, after all I enjoy seeing you.
I hope you enjoyed the White Wednesday Tea. Come back I would enjoy seeing you again.

In this pic it shows the new top I put on the chair.
I added a new center back piece (I can't remember the name right now) it was just a piece of wood cut to size, and some molding.
I added molding around the skirt of the chair, added some metal leaves to the legs, I had them in a junk box.
This is the back of the chair, more molding, wood pieces, and metals leaves.
Finally I recently added this seat cover (yes I made the cover also). There it is a French style, silvered chair on the cheap. For more great projects go to:
See you there. See everyone next time........

My statue in the front, he seems to not mind the snow.
This is the day after, it looks more like the northeast than the south.
So with not much to do, and having spring fever. I decided to redo the mantel with hopes that spring will come soon.
I want to do something a little fun, but still classic. So I chose a bird theme for spring, but everything is still my favorite color (mmmm could it be white...).
The candlesticks I already had (I bought them years ago). The bird is alabaster and I already had him. The nest was picked up outside on the ground. The cage is new (so to speak it is from France and antique), I needed something more and when I saw it I snapped it up (great deal too).
The prints I picked up a few weeks ago, a $1.00 a piece. They are sitting on floral frogs, no need to frame I wanted to keep it casual. The votives I already had.
And my favorite mantel clock......
Well I hope this brings spring real soon, or I at least make me think it is spring...
Everyone have a Happy Valentines Day, get plenty of flowers, eat lots of chocolate, and snuggle with your favorite someone.
See you next time....

This figure looks very upmarket in white, even though she was picked up for a song.
"Renoir said once that nothing was so difficult, and at the same time so exciting, to paint, as white on white."

The ceiling is dormered making the room cozy, it has skylights which are ok, but the mornings are brutal. So I put up white roller blinds so it cuts out the morning light for the late sleepers. Where the curtain is at is the entrance to the walk in closet, which leads right to the suite's bathroom (show that and all the other nooks and crannies around here in another post).
One side, then the other........
Toile window treatments.
