Farmhouse whites

There are times that I love the simple look of white, so I wanted to share my recent farmhouse finds. One of the nice things about having white in your home is that it is so easy to take pictures of. Just a little light a few quick touch ups with the photo editing and you're done. Well hopefully!

I have wanted a farmhouse pitcher for awhile now and I didn't want to spend a lot for a vintage enamel one right now, so I found these two porcelain ones at Ross's. I think I paid around 6 dollars for each of them and I thought that was a great price. They remind me of  vintage milk and cream pitchers and would look lovely on a farmhouse table. I also found this egg container. I saw one of these on another bloggers website and when I found it in white, I had to have it. I already had the chicken wire basket and I just added some white tea towels and set it on my kitchen counter. 


I also enjoy creating vignettes on the windowsill because of all the light and  interesting shadows. 


I love the shape of these little pitchers and  they create a sweet farmhouse display with the egg crate.


We went to an antique show earlier this year and I was looking for vintage kitchen accessories. I loved everything there, except the prices but I did manage to find a flour sifter that I really liked and some biscuit cutters. I love the green handles. 


I really liked the look of the nut meat chopper. I had never seen one before and thought it was a unique and inexpensive piece. I was told it still chops nuts perfectly fine, of course I'm not using it for that! I think it was made in the 1940's. I also found a white porcelain container, another biscuit cutter and tea bag leaves holder at the thrift store for a few dollars.      


I also love these wooden spindles. They were less than a dollar each at the antique show. They were plain when I bought them so I wrapped some cotton yarn around a few of them for interest. I also added some vintage white linens to this table to display my whites. 


I added the spindles to my larger pitcher. 



More thrift store finds and some fresh flowers for a romantic touch to the table. 

I also added a platter behind the pitcher for a different look. 


I love the warmth of wood with my white pieces. The table is a family heirloom that I always like to display. I also like my vignettes somewhat simple. I enjoy the overall feel of them more this way. 


Just a simple little vignette made more lovely with fresh cut flowers. I'm sharing with Country Farm Home & Old time Farmhouse for Country whites weekend. Thanks for stopping by!

  20. Just lovely. My gramma had many of those things, unfortunately we had to sell much of it when she went into a nursing home. I've kept some that were very special, though. Lovely staging :) Visiting from Common Ground.

  26. Diane, I am drooling over your farmhouse finds my friend! Love, your new pitchers! I am going for a farmhouse look in my basement kitchen. I have some open shelves and want to keep them mostly white and cream. I think it could get very busy other wise. I have a few white teapots that I got a Ross a while ago. I think they were $6 or $8 ea. also. Would love to find some like yours. Your entire vignette is just lovely. You have a knack! thanks for sharing with SYC.
    hugs,
