A Blue Week and White Week

In between finishing off painting another 3 rooms in a dazzling white, we made a visit to our favourite country market

An up-cycled sewing drawer
perfect for my crochet cottons

A vintage milk bottle holder

I love this old farm house zinc water holder. It has the cutest chained plug and tap

The finished dining room. All that is needed is the wonderful black and white photos of Europe we blew up and framed with Ikea frames that I featured in a post from our city home . It will be great to unpack them at last

YAYYYY! white walls

Daphne bush in bloom

Foggy mornings

Freezing afternoons

Stormy skies

  1. New camera? New photo app? The colors in your photos are splendid! That pop of color is great with white walls. I wouldn't have anything else. Have a great weekend. Linda@Wetcreek Blog

  2. Your house is looking lovely all freshly painted and your displays of vintage pieces is lovely. I especially love the swing drawer and milk bottle holder, those colours are gorgeous. Thanks for sharing.

  10. I am a firm believer in white walls! You can never go wrong with white. We are house hunting ATM, why oh why do people paint their houses in multi colour. I do despair sometimes! Aneka
