On my recent trip out to Illinois and the sweet Nada farm sale I met some pretty sweet new friends ... in person, face-to-face, for "real" .... one of the most rewarding aspects of blogging is actually meeting the women you admire on-line. I thought "White Wednesday" would be fitting to share with you one of my newest buds, Jeanine of "ChiPPy !!! SHaBBy !!!" fame. Here's Jeanine and myself below hanging out at Anne Marie's farm.
Why Jeanine and White Wednesday ... because of the fresh way she "does white" !!
At first glance her whites immediately pop off the page ... they are crisp, clean and fresh. I think that's hard to do over and over again ... let's face it white is ... well white. We can mix it with various shades of cream and grey ... add multiple layers of fabulous textures ... like, rust, burlap, and chippy paint. But a lot of the time it can still fall FLAT ... flat white and boring.
Not at ChiPPY !!! SHaBBy !!!
Take a closer look at how Jeanine "does white" .....
Do you see it?
YES! Big BOLD splashes of BRIGHT color!!
Sometimes it's subtle ... a luscious green plant or a sunny yellow pansy ... but it always has IMPACT!
... and makes her whites a knockout.
Speaking of impact ... check out Miss Jeanine below ... she's quite the little dynamo wrapped up in a petite package!
Oh ... and attention to detail ... the smallest details .... can you guess who this Van belongs to?
I thought you could! It's white and "shabbby" .... Hmmmmmm I don't recall any "chippy" ... I guess that's a good thing when it comes to Jeanine's car ; )
If you'd like to see more of how Jeanine does white, spend some time visiting with her over at her blog ... it's jam packed with inspiring FRESH white!
And of course you can always get your weekly dose of white at Kathleen's "Faded Charm"
it's White Wednesday after all.
I have lots more to share with you from my road trip, it may take a while and my Nada posts may be a little behind the rest ... but they are coming ; )
Have a ChiPPy SHaBBy HaPPy day!
