Dreaming of White...

Ever since the mention of snow
has been is our forecast
I have had white on the brain!

I love the snow...
Not really to play in,
just to snuggle up inside and watch it fall...

(click photos to enlarge)

So I have built my tablescape all in white
with just twinkling glass accents...


A cozy table for two


a gathering of mismatched glass candlesticks
serve as the only centerpiece...


The candle sticks themselves are also varying heights
adding to the casual romance...


This tablecloth has been on my table too long!
It is a favorite
with it's gossamer rose pattern...


My plates are simple everyday wear
but the frilly edge detailing
has always reminded me of snowflakes...


Pretty vintage napkins...


Twinkling lights...


If I wish it hard enough
maybe the snow will really come!

Tonight I am joining...

and I am joining

I also have some fun news to share!
Amanda Formaro from Old Fashioned Living
has been so kind as to ask me to write
a couple more small articles
and they were published today!

The links are below each photo
if you would like to check them out :-))





Are you dreaming in White Tonight?

Thanks for joining me today!

Hi Bella,
Congrats on the articles! Wonderful!!
I love your pretty white table; that's my kind of white.....I'd rather see it on a table rather than on the ground outside. Not ready for winter yet!!!

Love your collection of glass candleholders, they look great with the white candles and all the white linen and plates. I might look out for some candleholders at garage sales now as I really like that look.

A classic touch of delicacy of WHITES... simply a class..... beautiful.... I think there is no match of the beauty of white hmm mm? Plates are one of my favourite, candle stands are marvellous and the most beautiful is your table cover... prettiest..

Hi Bella, Congrats on your articles! It must beexciting and a lot of fun. I see your Victorla in the background. Do you also collect the old 78s. We have one but it is a table top model and I am always looking for old jazz records in the 78s. Have a good day...Julian

Hello Bella,
I came from Susans Tablescaping and I am in love with your white table, the heavenly shimmering vcandles, the roses embroidery on the tablecloth, the wonderful edged plates.... yes, just with everything. I think, your creativity is the reason for being featured so often. I wish you a very nice, maybe white, Thanksgiving.
Greetings, Johanna

I love your everyday plates. Are they Rachel Ashwell from Target? Just curious.

Barbara said...

SO beautiful! I love an all white table. After many years since registering for china, I decided it was time for a new set. I got all white and I love the versatility. All your accompaniments set that sparkle mood, just like snow. Beautiful with all those candles!
