Posy Palette: Paperwhites

Pretty Paperwhites

Why is it that in early winter when the paperwhites bloom and the snow covers the ground, we’re drawn to all things white?  Well, perhaps not all things white as we do live with five teenage boys and four dogs and there’s no way we could decorate our homes without color and pattern.  But we do like the freshness that winter whites bring to a room…

Pretty Pitcher

Pretty Patterns

or to an outfit (even though we once thought wearing white after Labor Day was taboo!)

Pretty Pumps

Pretty Pullover

We’ll have to make do with these pretty things as we’ve sworn off anything and everything white in our New Year’s diet…

Pretty Pastries

Wishing everyone a wonderful winter white weekend!

    I do love white in winter – I think it helps me embrace the snow that is going to be blanketing the ground for the next few months!

    I adore whites year round and they brighten the grey days here in the pacific northwest. Paperwhites are my favorite flower this time of year:).

    Such a pretty post and now I’m craving some of the icing on that cake!!

    Have a nice weekend!
