The holidays usually unfurl pretty gradually for me. Little tokens of the biggest fest of the year are already appearing here and there around our place. Some folks can't abide it, but the season starts earlier for retailers and bloggers!
I love white of course. (Like you didn't know that. . .) But I also love soft greys with gold and pastels in their quiet measures. (My eucalyptus sprigs have dried to about the perfect shade of green for me.)
And plenty of silver! I plopped a little tree inside of this trophy just to see how it looks, so I guess it's official. Decorating has begun!
Brown transferware too!
Here's a new jug that I have added to my collection. A few evergreens would be perfect tucked into it. Don't you love the lettering?
I love its pretty maker's mark too. . . .
You can see its smaller size next to my Rosepoint sugar bowl. It fits right in like it was always there!
I already have a little pile of Shiny Brites in all the right colors that have been hidden away in plain sight for the last year on the sideboard. I'm in love with that wash of merest pink in the one with the stripe.
And talk about serendipity! A new vintage Limoges teacup I recently found combines all of the hues of a perfect vintage winter!
I would love a complete set of this pattern for the table! But I'll just have to add this one to the rest of my wishful dreams. . . .
Whether you launch early or late, I hope you are enjoying a few of your own wishes and dreams for the season!
Happy White Wednesday!
