Time for White At Home

There's something about lacy white on the lawn to transport me to the tropics or some Victorian movie scene. It's definitely out of the ordinary at any rate.

Sturdy wicker from the thirties is a major player on this stage. (It's actually Lloyd Loom, constructed of paper covered wire.) New wicker just isn't the same.

If there's a doubt about its age, it's written plainly on the underside. And I don't give a fig about it's obvious flaws.

A couple of soft cushions makes it respectable to sit on. Even for company. And there's nothing more perfect than white for summer.

Vintage linens add to the romance. But when DON'T they? Lawn tennis anyone?

Nothing cheerier than being at home with white! All of our lawn parties should have this look!

Wishing you another wonderful White Wednesday!
Ciao! for now!



  1. Beautiful! Love the chair and I even noticed an old swing hanging from the tree in the background! What a beautiful spot!

  2., Love, LOVE your white outdoor romance setting!!

    i'll be the one sitting under all that lovely lace...eyeballin' that sweet rope swing:)

    xo, Rosemary

  3. so nice and pristine, a huge contradiction to my life right now~

  4. Is that big white pot McCoy? I love the texture on it. Your pictures are superb showing texture even if the pot was not there. Stay cool - it's hot in Colorado. Sally

  5. What a beautiful setting, I felt my blood pressure going down as I looked at each of your pictures. Thank you so much for sharing.

  6. Hi J,
    This IS THE LOOK of lazy summer afternoons! So victorian and romantic!! I wanna swing!!

  7. Lindas imagens , traduzem tranquilidade , conforto e tudo de bom, o branco é realmente lindo em todo lugar!

  8. I adore table linens in white and you have some gorgeous pieces! I keep going back to your lovely photos to investigate them. Thanks so much for sharing.

  9. This looks like the perfect setting for a little afternoon soiree!! You can't beat old wicker and it is worth the cost of having repaired if you have an old piece that needs work. A few beautiful cushions or linens are all you need. Love the clock and the little kitty looks ready to join the fun!!


  10. So dreamy. I think that vintage linens in whites or creams are beautiful works of art.
    Lovely photos and the old wicker is so pretty.


  11. Beautiful white vintage post and a surprise visit from your cat. Adorable photo of your cat.

  12. Oh, how totally breathtaking!!! Such beautiful white lace and all your treasures are gorgeous!!


  13. Oh my, how lovely. Is that the original finish on the wicker chair? It appears to be in very good shape - obviously adored for generations.

  14. Beautiful post!
    LOVE the pics of table and chair with that draped cloth.
    happy ww

    Be a sweetie,
