Romancing the summertime whites

Recently, I have been rearranging some of my favorite finds and treasures.  Some things I put away for a season so that it will seem fresh and new the next time the season comes back around.

I adore a calming fresh palette of whites.
Mixed with some seashells, I tucked my whiteware and McCoy pottery here and there.
{the white ruler crown is one of my very faves lately}

I found this sweet bust while thrifting.
For mere pennies, the treasures that are out there waiting to be found amaze me.

Here is a close up of my unbottled time.
{if only it could be that easy, right?}

Maybe it would be need to tuck a little sea inspired scroll in the neck of the bottle.

There are two sides to this story.

I also love the look of handpainted china. {hence the next shelf down}
I am so fickle about what I want to display in this cabinet.  I know it will come together one day.
As a result, both styles are remain displayed for now . . . on different shelves, of course. 

I am linking in to Faded Charm's White Wednesday for this post.

Happy White Wednesday everyone!

Sending you happy summertime wishes sugahs!

I think the 2 shelves give you variation on a theme - white rules.
