Shades of white

Monday, May 26, 2008

Well you know me and white and every shade of off-white, cream and ivory - I love them ... These gorgeous paper cones I move from room to room. My dearest friend Christe Crocker made them for me for Christmas several years ago and I just can't put them away as they are just so beautiful and I think the photos of the old buttons speak for themselves.....

  11. They are lovely to look at Cathy, but I know they mean so much more than how they look. They are a bond of friendship, a creation of beauty passed in love from one good and loved friend to another, you are both so very lucky to have each other.
    A fabulous post thankyou, for sharing.

  13. Hi Cathie Louise! Excuse my bad English! I'm Italian and I've found your blog surfing the web. It's very beautiful! You have so charming atmospheres in your home!
    I live in Tuscany and I share my hobby (home decor) with my friend Paola. Sometimes we go to France to do shopping in the flea markets and in fabric shops. Many greetings from Italy! Ciao!
