Winter White

Where we live there's not much white about winter. Just gray skies and dark days of rain. I was reading Angela's post about winter whites over at Cottage Magpie where she talked about her winter whites. That inspired me to look around for my own.

White picture frames with a painted carving above it in our bedroom.

I love our winter bed. One of my favourite places to be is snuggled under a warm duvet with cool air from the open window drifting over my face while I listen to the rain dripping outside.

I like the black and white contrast of our staircase. I painted the handrail black this past summer and I'm so glad I did.

But this is the winter white I'd love to see - the Eiffel Tower with snow on it. This poster is pinned above my computer screen in my office for dreaming.

What beautiful "winter whites" Lorrie. I love your picture of the Eiffel Tower in the snow.

I love your wonderful Paris picture and all the whites from your home. That little architectural detail above your photos is lovely!

days for this season.And all the other pictures from your home are very wonderful.Your winter bed looks
very cosy.

  Hello, Summer.  It's almost 8 pm on a late June evening. The sun slants warm and golden along the Sooke Hills visible from our patio. ...
