White Lace, White Flowers, White Wednesday

You would think that the view from our cottage would be pretty much the same every day. Not so. Every morning brings a different picture. This morning, for example, there were quite thick clouds below us, hanging over the valley -

The white clouds reminded me that I hadn't yet done a WHITE WEDNESDAY post, and the beautiful scent of the mock orange by the gate, drifting on the gentle breeze, made me choose those delicious little blossoms for the post -

And then I thought, what about all those beautiful white wild flowers growing along the path in front of our cottage? So I toddled off with our doggies in tow, and collected a few more white flowers -

And then I had another thought ( my husband keeps warning me about thinking, lol ), why not put white flowers and white lace together? I grabbed a few pieces bought at the last vide greniers I went to -

This is a gorgeous antique French nightdress, with the most delicate and fine hand stitched broderie anglaise -

I am linking this post to WHITE WEDNESDAY No. 154 over at the FADED CHARM COTTAGE. Check out all the other beautiful white posts!

Dear Liz
It doesn't get a whole lot better than the fragrance of Mock Orange along side
a stack of white lace, doilies and night dresses. So dreamingly beautiful!
I'd love to see that view on a clear day too!
Is that little French cottage bulging yet with all your new brocante finds???
because if it is I know just the place they could live (hehehe!).
Wishing you a clearview day sweet friend,
