White Wednesday: Short & Sweet


White Wednesday

Hi everyone!!! Another rainy day here in Sydney... Spring has lost it's 'sprung'... More a drizzly bipolar season nervous to make an appearance.. So to brighten things up .. I thought I'd show you a few pretties ... a little vignette of whites.. My chippy enamel coffee pot, a white gauze sachet and some white crocheted doilies [although I don't think you can see them] .. Also in the mix is a little framed silk print I recently found at goodwill ... a bargain at $2.


Another goodwill bargain was this glass vase.. At first overlooked.. but after thinking of it all night I went back the next day to rescue him... Here he is with Little Miss Lavender Sprig who should have been in my previous post .. but defiantly refused to get in the vase with her lavender cousins ..
Quite the Prima Donna!!!



... Sorry just a quick post today ...

Thanks to our White Wednesday host the lovely Kathleen of Faded Charm.
Pop over there for some more pretties from other White Wednesday participants..

And thanks everyone for your lovely comments on my Lavender post
... I'm feeling the Love!! ...

You should keep feeling the love, these are also beautiful photos! Sorry about your weather...our fall is perfect, but I'll be whining again as winter arrives!

Mammabellarte Rita Reade said...

Buongiorno! The frame is sure a bargain, love it.
I have the same lavender and as soon as I cut it it doesn't look that pretty in a vase, it sure smells good when I walk by. Buon Mercoledi Bianco Ciao Rita mammabellarte

Julie, this is such a beautiful post! I love that coffee pot, frame and vase! So, so beautiful.
Amazing that it is spring there and fall here :).
Have a wonderful day.

June said...

I am on serious beauty overload today Julie. I went back to your lavender post and then this one and I have to tell you, that your photos almost make me cry from the beauty of them. What talent through the lens Julie.
Thank you so much for your message to me about my roses. you go right ahead and pick your roses and ignore the neighbor.LOL! You should enjoy your blooms whether one or one hundred.
Say hi to the pretty horses around you for me.
hugs to you from here...

Don said...

You have the white stuff!

Beach House Living said...

You have luck. If I left something I saw it wouldn't be there the next day. I like it with the lavender sprig.

oldgreymare said...

I wish I had the little framed print but I wish I had the rain more.
It has been nearly 7 months without rain in my area of town. At least it has cooled down but we desperately need the rain.

Happy White Wednesday!


Jacqueline @ HOME said...

Dear Julie,
Such pretty treasures and such bargains. They all go so well together and make such lovely photographs. A beautiful collection.
It's a bit of a shame that Spring is a bit of a wet squib so far. I hope that it dries up soon for you.
Hope that you are well Julie and are settling in to your new home. XXXX

Julie said...

Bonjour Julie
I was raining in Melbourne yesterday and we are expecting more today.(grrr) actually good for my garden but not good for cleaning outside.
I love love the image on this posting, so dreamy.
Wish you a great day!

Julie xx

Unknown said...

I really like your comments about Spring here in Australia- it definitely has lost its spring!
Still in winter PJ's with flannelette sheets on the bed- though I have removed one quilt.

Ange said...

I'm a chippy white enamel fan too. Fabulous! fabulous!
Well done Miss Julie! You have just landed yourself some more chippy crap from France thanks to Libellule who shouted out your number. Who needs a random number generator when you've got kids?!!

simon said...

Well yes it has an almost tropical feel to it as the storms roll over the mountains and down into Sydney.. Cannot complain.. each storm = less fire risk for us :o)

erin's art and gardens said...

Pooch Purple Reign said...

Killiecrankie Farm said...

i still am awed by your treasury of goodies used for your sets :)

Patyclau said...

I like so much these things...vintage...very nice photos.

Thank you very much for your visits and comments, you are very kind.


La Petite Gallery said...

You could have done window display, You have wonderful composition. I can't beleive a GOODWILL across the world. What fun.. yvonne

rjerdee said...

You're such a good rescuer of old and tattered, much-loved things. And you have such total control over your sense of style...always a pleasure to stop here :)

Giulia said...

My favorite bricoleuse!

Mise said...

You're a supreme stylist, Julie - if you had your own thrift shop you'd turn it into a roaring emporium in weeks.

Carole said...

Great way to brighten the day. Love the enamel pot......I saw a huge enamel coffee pot at a thrift store today for $32 and thought wow.. and this is in a thrift store! Great little box next to all the goodies...you didn't mention that one. I'm quite taken will the dreamy effect you've achieved. Chalk this one up with all your other winning photography.
Hey and don't apologize for the quick post...looks like that's the type I'll be doing soon:))

Heaven's Walk said...

Hi Julie! Thanks for popping over from lovely Australia to visit my blog! I envy that you live in that beautiful country...someplace I would love to visit someday. :) I adore your photos - and am your newest happy follower! :)

xoxo laurie

count it all joy said...

Julie - stylist extraordinaire! I can see you hanging out your shingle right now. That enamel jug is gorgeous and your photos, as usual, are the reason why I find some home mags disappointing these days....I'd much prefer to look at your images which have heart and soul. Hope you're battoning down the hatches on this wild and woolly Friday night. Meredy xo.

Debra@CommonGround said...

Hi Julie, your images are just so lovely, feminine, and nostalgic. Hard to imagine that you all are heading into spring and we head into fall. Both such beautiful seasons. LOVE your vignette, thanks for the inspiration.

Drawn to The Sea said...

Spring can be such a tease, but just like your posts (short or otherwise) so worth waiting for :-)
