White Mornings





January always finds me with a huge appetite for white. Maybe after all the holiday intensity, and all of the visual delight, my eye is ready for a rest. More likely it's the light pouring into my dining room first thing in the morning that's responsible! It's more of a wake up to me than any cup of coffee.








And the light never shines more beautifully than it does at the morning of the year when the sun rises earlier each day and January begins to keep the promise of a coming spring. 




So I often pause a bit to appreciate the gift. The new light on my old things in the early day. Even as it passes quickly away. . . .

















































I hope your new week has started out well!
I am elbow deep into my new projects of the year.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
 I am still getting around to visit you when I can!

  6. This beautiful post reminds me of my mother's collection of white milk glass. That's what she called it. She had vintage pieces and newer pieces (newer as from the 50's-60's). It was a beautiful collection like yours and I have a few pieces.

  7. I love white too. For Christmas Hubby bought me a set of fiesta dishes and they are all white. I am also putting more white in our dining room. Will be showing it in a few weeks hopefully.

  17. I love the loveliness of all your white, but to be perfectly honest, in Michigan in January the last thing I'm into is white! WAY too much of it outside this year! I'm imagining these in April, I think. The cusp of spring!

  25. No one does whites quite like you do, Jacqueline. These pics are gorgeous.

    I agree that Jan truly IS the perfect month for whites.

    Thanks for all the eye candy!

  26. Im not sure what happened but I must have fallen off your subscriber list - I just saw a whole bunch of posts I hadn't seen. So I just rejoined.

    That is so weird. It happened to another fav blogger I was a member of, I hate that. Sorry, friend! Hopefully I can catch up on back posts, they're always way up on my FAVORITES to see and read.

    Hugs.

  27. What a beautiful use of whites! I have some but I wish I had more. I go through the same thing wanting white. I love color, but you are so right. It's nice to have a break now and then..and besides, I doubt I will ever see another drop of snow except on the far distant mountain tops and even those have none this Winter. We are in such a dry time out here in California.
    A really lovely Wintertime post. :)
    Love,
    Mona

  28. You know how envious I am of your creamy white environment, Jacqueline! Each image is just so lovely and relaxing and filled with everything January is to me: a quiet, waiting, patient, stripped down to its true beauty time of year. Wishing you luck with all your projects. For now, I'm concentrating on knitting, ironing and reading.

  33. A beautiful tribute to white. I seem to long for simplicity and white, once the Christmas decor is packed away. Much to my delight, a stunning white ironstone pitcher came home with me from the local consignment store last week. Happy Birthday to me!
