White Wednesday

Earlier this afternoon, we were sitting in our drawing room, when all of a sudden the room was bathed in beautiful soft sunlight. After yesterday's very grey and dismal weather, this was such a beautiful moment, and I managed to capture those few minutes in a few photographs.

This gorgeous German vase was a wedding present to us 30 years ago, and I love its timeless look and elegance. The sunshine which burst through the half drawn curtain lit the vase up and threw a sharp shadow on the wall behind it. I loved that moment so much, that I picked this vase for this week's White Wednesday over at the Faded Charm blog -

The strong light produced some intense contrasts, the room is normally very light, with very light pink walls, nothing like these pics might suggest.

Have a look at the Faded Charm blog for fabulous Whiteness. Make sure you have a cup of tea of coffee, lol, there is so much to see.

I was going to post pics of more completed Christmas tags on here as well, but I think I will do a separate post for those after all.

So, toodlepip for just a little while, I'll be back in a jiffy with the Christmas tags!
