At Home with White.....It is one of my favorite books. I love all the shades of white together mixed with different textures like wicker and painted wood. I also love white when it's put together with silver and lace and roses! And here are a few photos of white around my home. Here is a button wreath that I made with mostly vintage buttons.

More vintage buttons on a transferware plate that I love....some white seashells......vintage buttons and millinery flowers....
my white hutch full of white treasures....
and my collection of vintage chandelier crystals, which of course are not white, but look pretty with white.

Hi Michelle, just came upon your blog..and you got me with the crystals..I too collect them..and just to be me I hang them up in my windows...neighbors must think I'm a lost Hippy...but I love the colors on any sunny day...and as my home is mostly white it's a great dash of color...and because I'm an "artist"? I can get away with being over the top..and I'm in California too!...XOXO, Melissa.

Hi Michelle!

I love that book, I still can spend an hour or so looking at each and every photo. They are all so beautiful, aren't they?

Your "whites" are so pretty, too.
