White Wednesday - Old finds

Today a variation from Wordless Wednesday.....its White Wednesday!

I simply love the White Orange Jasmine blooming in my garden now, I got their sweet fragrance day and night through my bedroom window

I cant resist a good bargain when I see one...anything under the sky! These I got cheap about 15 years back from a gift shop. Reminded me of old English country charms...




a white porcelain teapot



for my morning tea or coffee when I got tired of making them in a pewter pot




when there was a rave for anything sunflower back then...I use this for fresh flowers arrangement when Im bored of artificial ones on the tables

Whites are simply charming to me, though those are not vintage charms, I treasure them as though they are. Im into gardening as much as Im loving the charms of beautiful things around the house! Go over to Faded Charm to see more beautiful whites, it will blow your mind, that is if you love those things like me!

WongCW, I think anything on white will look nice to me. Those were the days when everybody was clamouring for sunflower motif on everything!

Rani, basically porcelain are painted white, so that any motif of any colour will stand out beautifully.

Diana, Rainfield thank you...just another facet of me besides gardening!

The White Orange Jasmine is beautiful...I'm sure it smells lovely. Jasmine is one of my favorite vining plants. Also like your Sunflower pitchers...sunflowers are one of my favorite flowers. White is such a lovely color...so many different shades!

I love White Orange Jasmine (Bunga Kemuning) too. Their fragrance smells great in the evening. I always enjoy them blooming ~ both for the fragrance and the beauty of the blooms.
