Soothing...Serenity...of...White












While relaxing at my father's house this weekend I discovered the serene and inspiring photography of Christine Bauer...and...of course...I couldn't keep all this loveliness to myself! If you'd like to see more visit HERE !


Love and good thoughts from...

I just love the crisp clean lines of white on white! I don't know how on Earth, folks with kids could keep everything white though... but the photos sure look lovely. I'm quite sure anything white in my house would soon be the color of sand and grape jelly! Love the pics. :)

Hahaha...sand...now that's my very favorite camouflage color Christy!!! We have a lot of white in our house and and it's a super easy clean up with a little bleach and water (for painted surfaces, tile floors and counter tops)...trouble is...I do have stay on top of things. Also...a favorite little tip for those with white slip covers... hydrogen peroxide (I often apply it directly to stains using an old eye dropper)is a wondrously easy...and frugal...stain remover! I use it almost daily...but it can remove some colors...and...like bleach...over time it can break down the fabric fibers. Thus...I keep it primarily for my sturdy white fabrics i.e. slipcovers. :)
Warmly,
Tracey

I have truly enjoyed these little photo essays.
They've sent me back to my hand crafts and books with inspiration.
Thank you.

How funny I just set up a big white table yesterday. There is something to soothing about white, espically in the summer xoxox Clarice

Frair John,
Thank you so much for the kind words and nice thoughts. These images had a similar effect on me (i.e.inspired me to action...in a very gentle way). I'm so happy to know others were similarly touched. :)
Warmly,
Tracey

P.S. I've been struggling with some health issues these past two weeks but am on the mend now and, good Lord willing, almost healed!
