Shades of white (part one)...

"Shades of White" is the June 18th blog post at Sadie Olive, and while I don't have her talent as a photographer, I do have plenty of white around my house to photograph! Today's post (part one) will be "shades of white" from inside my home (some new photos, some that you’ve perhaps already seen); tomorrow's post will be "shades of white" from around the yard.

Very pretty. I love the door knocker. But is it in a coffin? Poor thing looks lonely in there. LOL

Hugs to you,

Hi Donna!
Great shots! I love the door knocker you have holding down your linens in the basket. How adorable!
Thanks for your prayers for my mom! I'm so happy for her!
Hugs, Sherry

You DO have beautiful photography skills, sweet thing! I love all your white. I don't have much white! Better get busy "whitening up", huh?!?!?!

Hi Donna,
I, too, love that door knocker -- and what a terrific idea for using it! I'll have to go on over and visit Sadie Olive to see all the white.

You asked about my camera -- it's a Nikon D40. I used a 55-200mm zoom lens for the turkey vultures. The lens came with the camera package. My husband gave it to me for Christmas, and it is the BEST present I ever got!

I am going to try the peanuts for my Chippy. Happy weekend!

I love your shades of romantic white. You have lovely things and I always enjoy seeing them.

I think you may be right about the Hummer. She came to the feeder several times in the late afternoon Wed, but I didn't see her yesterday. perhaps for the greater good I should move the feeder nearer the potential nest. Or go to Target and buy another one.

Love all the white goodies. Yes, we need a stone rabbit tea party! I had another one but his ear fell off, uh oh....

I have always wondered about your fuzzies on the side of the page. If it shows a - between the dates does that mean they are no longer with you? The little troll just tugs at my heart! Thank you for being such a great supporter of animals!

You have so many beautiful things in white that I wouldn't even know where to begin to pick a favorite! Those roses are so incredibly beautiful.

Thanks so much for the link for the screen! I can hardly wait to show my sweetheart husband. I'm going to show him the makeover you did to your fireplace brick too! It is amazing how great it looks.

Thank You!

Professional photographer or not, you have many lovely white things in your home!!! Where or where did you find that bird lamp in the first picture??? I've been wanting a bird lamp forever, and yours is perfect!!!

My favorite white picture is, of course, your KITTY!!!!!
