Fresh and New

The Christmas stuff is put away and I'm ready for the freshness & newness that January brings.

The other day I stopped at a local antique mall and came home with these. They were only $2. I'm kind of on a white kick right now. 

There is just something that attracted me to them. For several years now I've been drawn to romantic creams & whites. Maybe this will be the year that I take the plunge and paint all of my rooms in that palette. Here is a shelf in my family room devoted to a collection of black, cream & white.

I even bought my new iPhone in white.

On that same trip to the antique mall I bought this cute kerchief. No, it isn't white, but oh so vintage & cute. It reminds me of "Rosy the Riveter". I think I'll wear it this summer while out thrifting. My daughter was gracious enough to model it for you. She looks so much better in it than I do!

Then today, while working at the antique store where I have a booth, I caved and bought myself another primitive country cupboard/pie safe. I have sort of an addiction to them. It is painted a sort of ugly burgany color. I intend to fix that problem straight away by painting it what else...but creamy white. Pics to come soon!

Hope your new year has started out fresh too!
