a passion for white

Some more photos on the white details around my house.

Some pillows i did on different shades of white.

I bought this old chair at a local shop that only sold very old things at extra cheap prices. Sadly the shop doesn't exist anymore. I had to repair and paint it, but the result was great.

I have this piece of furniture since 1992. We bought it for our flat, but when we moved into this house i painted it white, changed some things and decorated it with white stones.
A picture of an old bible that belonged to one of my mother's uncle who was a priest. This bible is written in latin and it was, actually, used during the mass.

This is a hand-embroidered linen curtain i did myself for my 2nd bathroom. On the next picture you can see a detail on it.

I also did this pearl embroidery and place the lace (bought at a fleamarket) on this mantel. I think it looks charming, doesn't it?!

Transformed candle-holders.

Hope you liked my pictures for the white wednesday day. Have a nice day!

Hi Rosa,
Beauty, beauty everytime I come here. All the details in your house are so lovely.
Your embroidery is so amazing. What an artist with a needle you are.

Dear Rosa,
Your cutwork & embroidery is beautifully done, such nice handwork. You must be a very patient person to make such pretty things.

I very much enjoy looking at your pretty things.
Pleasant day :-)

Hi Rosa,

Your embroidery on the pillow cases and the mantel looks beautiful! Have you done some kind of education in that direction or is it one of your hobbies? I like embroidery as well, but because of my job and the other hobbies I have (singing, playing tennis & gardening) there is hardly any time left for doing some embroidery or painting....

Enjoy your day! Love Madelief

Dear Rosa

You have such lovely and interesting things detailed in the photos. I love taking old pieces of furniture and painting and distressing them - giving them a new lease of life.

I'm sorry not to comment very often but I do visit often - your beautiful post is like a breath of fresh air. Thank you for sharing.

Dearest Rosa, you show us wonderful-wonderful white-wednesday-pictures! Sorry, that I didn't write sooner - this week was terrible stressy... I also want to thank you for your nice comment (and try to answer your questions)! I think, your old bible and the other books with skin cover are really precious! My books are only "old" and have some worth for me...
My sewing machine is not in use - I don't have the pedal any more. I just use it sometimes for decoration, because I love it's design.
Your husband is right - Vienna is really a beautiful city - if you visit it one day, please tell me and we can meet there!
The Mali-Mo-Family: I think you have been on the wrong place - the last post is from 28th August. I link to the blog in my actual post, so I am sure you can find it... A really sad story... I hope this family will be able to get back to life (as the McClenahans accomplished it)! There is a world of consoling to be done.
I wish you wonderful Septemberdays, dear Rosa!!! Warm hugs, Traude
