Winter White Collections

Thanksgiving marks the unofficial end to fall. The leaves still fall, but it feels every bit of winter from where I am standing. At any rate I have cleared the way for some Winter/Christmas decorating to get it's toe hold. As much as I admire a spare look for rooms in a house, there are still plenty of places in my heart that hold room for my collections. Especially this time of year! I seem to be drawn to photos of rooms with lots of collections in it, and of course loving all the gorgeous rooms online and in December magazines right now. Endless!

Just before leaving for a few days, I snapped a few views of my dining room shelves waiting for holiday dressing.

My more recent finds have gathered here like this group of Mason Cash pudding bowls. I'm not sure I could ever pass one of these up!

Plenty of ledge left on this shelf to tuck in a bit of Christmas next to my new Staffordshire figures.

A great little ironstone tureen is new to the collection too.

 Just things that I use and love. I can't wait to add some holiday cheer to the mix!

Pitchers of course!

This Currier & Ives print is new to me this season. We painted the frame a creamy white. I don't think I would have liked it nearly so much without the obvious water damage!

I'm so looking forward to savoring the familiar joys of the season.

Hope you are too! 

Hope it's a great week for you!

Winter white indeed! It's beautiful, Jacqueline. And I adore that Currier and Ives print too -- my favorite of all the photos, I think!

Love the winter white. Oh, those pudding bowls are wonderful. Hello, my oak chairs at your table (I have 5 like them) And the handles on those knives are wonderful too. I would want those if I ever saw them.
