White Wednesday

Pin It Now!

I'm joining in again on White Wednesday hosted by Kathleen of Faded Charm.

I just LOVE white and there is a lot of white inside my blue cabinet...
At least one person always asks what color blue I used on this cabinet...you can find the paint colors I used here.
See the little cherub in the middle (below) with his hand in the air? I bought a set of two of those at Move it Elsewhere last weekend. The set was marked $25 but they were 75% off so for $6.25 I brought them home to join my other little cherubs. I think most of these are from the 50s & 60s and made in Japan.
Just one of these cherubs alone would be lost in this big cabinet but when you group them all together in a collection it really makes a statement!

You are so right the grouping of cherubs is so charming..... they look like they are having a party ...... what is so delightful is the different poses and sweet faces...... and of course your placement is perfection..

I love, love, love your cabinet, and everything in it in all shades of white is just stunning! I just hate to strip furniture, if I could just paint it I probably would do more :)

Charmaine said...

Cindy, I was curious about your cabinet. I purchased a similar one a while back and it's that wood/plasticy material... is that what yours was? I looked at your link to when you painted it and it looks like it in the before picture. If not, have you ever painted this "plasticy" material before, and if so, is there anything one has to do differently than painting wood? I would think so, but I don't know where to start. I have kilz 2 brand primer and I hear it is good for this type of furniture.
Do you think that would help? Also, would sanding it help? I have a husband and a soon to be 7 year old and a baby... so my furniture is not as "safe" from marr as your pieces. I looked up info online but find it hard to come across any.
Thanks a bunch for any help you can offer!

French-Kissed said...

Such a beautiful display of all of your white treasures. I also have a weakness for cherubs...you have a gift for display ~ love the way you tucked a little reindeer moss here and there, and few quail eggs and the starfish and sea shell. Your gorgeous display brightened my day!

Vicki said...

Hi, Cindy,
Your whites are so lovely and elegant. I love how you have them grouped together. Sweet cherubs are one of my favorite things, too. Have a beautiful day. Vicki

Cami @ Creating Myself said...

Your cherubs do make quite the statement...love your collection!

I'm wanting to paint my old vanity that color of blue. I'm not usually a fan of blues but that shade is almost a neutral.

Michelle (Shell) May said...

So glad you joined WW so I could find you. Your hutch is to die for. I scrolled down your page and I am so jealous of this place called Move it somewhere else...is that the right name? I need a place like that here! I do the same thing I intend of selling it and I keep all the good stuff for myself!

Peggyann said...

I love your blog and I LOVE ironstone. Your ironstone looks so pretty in the blue cabinet. How lovely.

Charlene said...

Love your new cherubs! And what a great price you were able to get! That blue cabinet is divine with all the goodies in it. I love it all but, that lace is over the top yummy. Thanks for sharing.

Wow! Nice! I also collect some ironstone. There just lovely. I have special room in my house where all my ironstone stuff displayed but I didn't used them. My husband doesn't really like those kind of stuff. But he allowed me to collect.

Hi Cindy, I love your blue cabinet with all your beautiful white ironstone pieces. I also noticed all your linens on the bottom shelf. I LOVE white linens, especially vintage linens, and would love to see some of your collection. Would you consider doing photos of your linen collection?
Have a great weekend!

Hi Cindy
Thanks for stopping by for a visit, I just wanted to let you know I have been out of town, my Mom had to have surgery so I went to take care of her so between that and school starting and the fact that I want a change here in my house, I haven't posted anything, I think you were the only who even cared so thanks!
Hugs~Kelly

Pamela said...

I just realized one of the reasons I enjoy your decor so much. Things in your home have an antique quality but they are in good repair, there's no rust or peeling paint. I never get tired of looking at the photos on your blog, your home is so pretty and so restful feeling.

Ana said...

Hi Cindy,
I would probably spend hours in front of your cabinet just taking in all the beautiufl treasures you have in there. I would probably spend hours and hours in your beautiful home taking in every single, beautiful detail. I am a very big fan of your designing skills! :-D Have a great one!

Smiles,
♥Ana

Joy said...
