Pale And Pretty

I found this gorgeous image on Atlanta Bartlett's site 'Pale and Interesting' and wondered where one would find old tea advertisements like the ones above her dining table? I love the big barn style doors too. After leaving her website I realised I have loads of pale and pretty images in my files - here are some...

This photo is just soooo cute!
Who wouldn't love a little waddling white feathered friend around the place to eat the snails??

This window seat is so inviting. I would have to add some vintage grain sacks into the mix of cushions though for texture...the ones with the thin red stripes - lovely!

Gorgeous tones of white here. Beaded board walls, faded white wicker rocker, old milky farm sign, well worn cream bench and the little house...sigh!
I hope you are having a wonderful day.

  7. oh that bedroom is sooo dreamy! who wouldn't looove to sit there and look those blooms for hours! xo

  8. I'm crazy for white and have been adding it all over my house, dishes, lamps, pillows, furniture - one piece at a time - vintage - old - new - but it isn't inexpensive and what the heck do I do with all the STUFF I have! Consignment shops don't pay, yard sales are time consuming, help with CLUTTER?!!@@$$&$&$ And I love the duck! Jennifer

  9. Love these pictures! Thanks for sharing. The duck is too cute!


  10. Love the pictures! I can always count on some amazing inspiration on your blog!

  11. Just had a blog post on the beach house studios too... I love that couple.

    You also added some cute white pictures and if you can't get enough of this white and pale I invite you over to see the two all white houses from the interior exhibition I visited last weekend ;)

  12. I have spied a few things in my house that need some 'whiteness'. Need to paint them now! Those pictures are divine x
