Wintry Whites. . .

On Crooked Creektt's built~in china cabinet,
much like our current freshly fallen snow,
is getting a mix of  wintry whites.




With minimal re~arranging,
I was able to create a wintry mix behind the glass doors
of the built~in china cabinet in a matter of minutes.







Living on the Prairie,
most of our year is spent surrounded by hues of brown, due to our arid climate.

By adding a touch of green
I am reminded that our current weather only lasts for a Season.

For added texture,
I chose a few pics of faux evergreens.



A Majolica Bordallo Pinheiro handled serving platter adds textural interest 
as a backdrop for my English bone china creamer, lidded sugar bowl and pitcher.







The use of wintry white faux florals throughout 
adds another textural dimension and interest 
against the dark walnut wood and the vivid Waverly wallpaper backing.

Winter is one of my favorite Seasons.
I adore the chill and the glistening snow. . .
since retirement, even more so!















































And. . .
since "Mr. Ed" and I've no place to go. . .
let it snow,   let it snow,   let it snow!

I see some familiar pieces? is the plate Johnson brothers? I also have the same Ironstone gravy boat, a very old family heirloom.

Your shelves look fantastic, Pat! Love all the white with little bits of green.

Love your cabinet display of winter whites with the hints of green, Pat - very calming together. That little jar (?) in the shape of a bunch of asparagus stalks is particularly attractive!

Love your winter whites and the touches of green are just perfect! I always enjoy how you change your cabinet seasonally.

So pretty! I've kept some silver and gold out for January, but I'm getting tired of the sparkle~You've inspired me to put it away and get out some wintry white!

The wintry white looks good to my eyes. The green of the hydrangeas and the asparagus against the white looks fresh and Spring like. Thank you for sharing Pat.

It all looks so pretty. I'm a big fan of white myself and need to get started on a new look for my hutch. Thanks for the inspiration.
