Adding More White For Summer

With the summer months getting warmer and warmer, I am ready for anything that looks cool.  White always looks cool no matter what the temperature is.

A collection of Goodwill finds in white make a great vignette.

This fruit topiary is so pretty and has such wonderful detail.

A precious little angel planter has a scuffed nose, but so sweet.

Pedestals are always fabulous finds and this one has such wonderful detail.

Different textures and shapes, I think that's what makes it interesting.

The marble egg was a gift from my DH years ago, one of my treasures.

Together they create a lovely "white" vignette.

Cool clean white.

  1. Hi Marty,
    it looks wonderful! I love all the white, so fresh.
    Have a great weekend,


  2. Looking good Marty, nice and fresh!

  3. Looks so clean and fresh for summer!

  4. All the pieces are lovely, but together make a cool summer collection! PS - you were two before me at the Pinterest Blitz Party!

  5. Loving all the white you are adding.

  6. What a lovely vignette. I must spend more time looking around charity shops. You've certainly done well! Loved the plant pot with the little girl on! Joan

  7. It absolutely looks great - and such a nice frugal way of going about it.

    I really love that pedestal especially!

  8. Your Summer whites are all so pretty!... I LOVE seeing your natural woods and darker furniture with them!... I was starting to think I am the only lady in blogland who will not paint her furniture white!... I love seeing the pieces ladies have painted, but for me, there is nothing like a beautiful wood finish... Happy Summertime!... xoxo Julie Marie

  9. In your room shot I noticed a couple more pedestals so nicely displayed. I think I need to look for some to add to my decor! Thanks for such a lovely posting.

  10. Looks great ! White is always beautiful .

  11. Love it. That's so true about white. It's cute that you pulled out the white too after last week.

    Thank you, for the sweet comment. My daughter is totally into vintage and shabby chic... quite the sophisticated tween. The corner cupboard displays all her collectibles, but she doesn't like to keep it open, because it is distracting.

  12. Marty,
    Ah...white... I am drawn more and more to it. Your white pedestal is going to be so nice for many other things also.


  13. Hi Marty! This is so lovely! What a beautiful topiary! I'm still amazed at all of these pretty things you find! :) Hope you're having a wonderful weekend.
    be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)

  14. Love your summery white touches, Marty. xo Laura

  15. Marty,
    I always adore your vignettes, dear friend!!!
    I've been adding 'a touch of white' to the Entry Hall here on the Prairie, as well!!!
    Summer has arrived, but today a shower is keeping high temperatures at bay!
    Have a wonderfully "cool" weekend, dear one. . .indoors or out!!!

  16. Your new summer colors look wonderful....and thrifty finds to boot.

    You can't beat that,,

  17. That IS a lovely white vignette! You find the best stuff at GW! We are HOT here too, but I am not complaining cause at least it quit raining;) XO, Pinky

  18. Love the vignette! Also love the swan on the coffee table. I'm visiting from the Sunday Showcase (Pink When).

  19. It all looks lovely. I love the pedestal holding the egg. Have a great weekend.

  20. Beautiful living room, Marty and so elegant! I love your new White vignette, every piece of element you've used is gorgeous. The cloche with egg is stunning! Thank you so much for the wonderful visit, sweet lady. See you Tuesday!

  21. Hi Marty, You found some good things at GW. I love the white or cream is pretty too. You did a nice job with your vignette and your room is decorated very nice.

  22. Love the white, always works for me! That egg was a sweet gift!

  23. Love using more white in the hotter months. Just seems to cool things down a bit. Beautiful finds.

  24. I agree with you that white is so refreshing in Summer, but at the same time classic and seasonless. I really need to look at things with a fresh eye when I got to Goodwill/thrift stores. Nice pieces, especially the little planter.

  25. Very pretty! I really love that fruit topiary.Lovely!

  26. Looks beautiful! So pretty and fresh for Summer!

  27. I love white, and I like how you have added it to your home. I am going to have to check out Goodwill soon!

  28. I think the white does make it seem cooler and you need that in Arizona.

  29. Very nice, Marty! Very white!~~Angela

  30. It really lightens things up and looks nice. Enjoy your week my friend!

  31. What a pretty table Marty! I love the collection of whites. And I love that lamp and the egg!

    Have a great day.

  32. Loving your cool white vignette, Marty! Looks beautiful against that window with sunlight filtering in. And the touch of greenery makes it so very elegant:) Thanks for the inspiration! Happy Week! Hugs,Poppy
