Working with White ...

It seems shades of white have become a true love of here at Sweet Magnolias Farm.... No matter how far we travel into shades of pink or blues ..we always tend to find ourselves being drawn back to the comforting appeal of layers and layers of shades of white !

Having recently closed our 2 shops ...and not having come to a decision on where our next stop will be at this time ..I've been spending alot of time lately with my Best Friend Etsy ..

Yes ..I've been building the number of offerings in our Sweet Magnolias Farm Etsy Shop ..

Mostly whites and some color ...

Vintage And Romantic Farmhouse Pieces ...

The closer I am in the process to each piece ..looking it over carefully for correct desciptions, taking pictures that try to make it looks as beautiful as it is ...the more in love I keep falling with "White"...

Here's a few sneek peeks I have added this last week...

We were just published in the Spring Issue of Haute Handbags ..I am thrilled to say ..! I'm still awaiting my issue ...but I did recieve the totes that are published back in the mail ..and have made the available in our Etsy shop ..

This Early Pasteware Monogrammed Butter pat has a sister ..yes 2 of them ..I love that they are monogrammed !!!

Isn't she absolutely breathtaking ..I almost didn't let her go ..she is so peaceful ..! As she sat upon my desk all day while working ..I just couldn't keep looking at her and thinking how calming and so lovely to look at she was. She is actually a planter or flower holder. On her back side is a cavity to place water or soil in and add your plant or bouquet. I thought she would even be sweet with a bouquet of our Paper Roses displayed inside ..

Our Flour Sack Towels ..are so so Soft ..so scrumptious ..Lint Free and perfection for use in the kitchen, or Bath, Our vintage images are added with professional machinery so they are not iron ons ..and wash up beautifully ..softer each time.

Remember the old restaurantware .. These 2 Buffalo china soup bowls are perfection for that mis matched dinnerware style. That's how we do dinnerware here at SMF ...We have a wonderful collection of Blue and Brown 1800's transferware plates, Platters, bowls ..you name it ..and to compliment it we use antique silver plate silverware all mis-matched ...Its postively charming ...!

So even though it's White Wednesday ...Lately every day has been full of shades of white for me ..and it has even inspired me more to continue on the search for more shades of white in vintage finds along my journeys.

We would like to invite you to visit our Etsy shop by clicking HERE ... even if it's just for fun !

Wishing you all a Beautiful WW ..Hosted by Faded Charm ..
