White

Some of Paige Russell's pieces

My inability to stop buying white vases, dishes, random vessels and the like is no secret...

Generally I'm drawn to the lonely "strays" at yard sales and on clearance tables, but there's nothing like a beautifully handcrafted piece to bring the collection up a notch. I'm taken with Paige Russell's lovely work, which seems a perfect fit for that requirement.

A few pieces of my motley "white" collection. p.s. I'm about to wallpaper that space with this -- I'm pretty jazzed about it...

That is going to look awesome but my favorite part of the picture is your little bar and lamp. So inviting!

Joslyn...STOP IT! STOP IT THIS INSTANCE! What on earth are you trying to do to me? Oh yes how I LOVE the white pottery/ceramics...but this makes me wanna go shopping and that is NOT a good thing right now ;)

And the wallpaper? Fab! Every time I see it I'm like, "Yep...still LOVE it!" Excellent choice.

Be strong Uncle Beefy...sorry i tempted you so ;-)

i was hesitant on the wallpaper because i fear it's too...everywhere...but i have loved it forever, and like you, every time i see it i still love it, so that's a sign, yes?

If still love it everytime you look at it, definitely think it's a good sign. Love your collection of white and the photograph is so cozy and inviting.
