Lovely Winter Whites

As I put away Christmas dishes and look around my house I have plenty of white things to make an all white room and use to have my kitchen all white furniture then blue and white dishes in all my cabinets. Seems a lot of odds and ends have slipped in.
Seems over the years I have added lots color to my kitchen. This large picture of my old sheep use to hang in my kitchen and now is in my living room. It's a large oil painting with other sheep and a chicken in an old hay barn.

 I had a visitor one day that I asked to bring this romantic statue in off my front steps I thought I wanted it inside. Now someone come over and carry it back outside for me LOL
 This is a wonderful chippy white painted cabinet I bought many years ago when chippy furniture was first on the rise.It has several small drawers and then a top like dish safe which is full of Portmeriorn Strawberry Fair dishes . I bought these dishes one year when I got my first ever refund from the IRS LOL I splurged on of all things Dishes LOL
I also have kept this one old pressed back chair because of its design on the back 

I am still working on getting my new Christmas Twas The Night dishes arranged in my old pie safe downstairs in the studio.
It's a pine cabinet and I would love to paint it white before I get it all loaded , however right now not enough room to paint inside.

It's very cold and gloomy weather here today and yesterday. I am working on making a couple Birthday cards and a button covered heart pillow for myself.I just hate using my vintage white buttons on this pillow since they will be permanently glued to the pillow. Then why not? right?

  1. Happy New Year, Janice! I love winter whites and your sheep is so charming! What is it about sheep that attracts us so much I wonder? I love the red transferware you picked up the other day. I adore the red and you found a wonderful set. I have only a small cake plate in that pattern, Twas the Night. The truth is I was tempted to buy more pieces of it at our Home Sense store but I have a few too many dishes so I'm trying to be practical with an upcoming move this year. Have a lovely day, dear Janice.

    Winter blessings,

  3. You do have some lovely whites! I know what you mean about the statue. I have a rather large bunny in the garden -- and that's exactly where he is going to stay, no matter what the weather!

  4. Janice, I really like that awesome sheep painting! And your cabinet is amazing.

  5. Oh, I love that cabinet ! I have a special love for cabinets... maybe cause they store dishes, lol..
    That painting is awesome too !
    Have a wonderful 2017.

  6. Love that painting - and these other items. I love nature and the face of the animal is so up close.

  7. I love white pieces and yours create such a warm coziness.
    I am not sure I could live in an all white house. I like color too much!
