Hello my friends!
*
Welcome to the 107th run of "Sunday Favorites"
*
Happy 4th of July!
*
I hope that you're having a wonderful 4th of July weekend!  It's another busy, busy weekend here at my place!  I'm really looking forward to doing a little 4th of July celebrating on Monday!  We are planning a little "down time" on the 4th...just enjoying the day together and being thankful for this great country that we live in.  We will throw a big ol' steak on the grill and then later in the evening, we will be off to see our little local town's 4th of July fireworks!  That's how us "country folk" do up the 4th of July!  Hehe!  I hope that you have a wonderful holiday weekend as well!  Enjoy and be safe, dear friends!

Today for Sunday Favorites, I thought I would share one of my "favorite" posts called "Fantasies in White"...originally posted on July 26, 2009.  I hope that you enjoy!  I'm looking forward to seeing your Sunday Favorites posts this week.  You can sign up for the party at the end of this post!  Hmmm...changing things up a bit...aren't I?  Hehe!

"Fantasies in White"

Hello my friends! I hope that you had a wonderful weekend and that your Monday is off to a great start!
*
I have recently found the fun of making photo "mosaics"! If you haven't ever tried your hand at it...you really should! It really is sooo much fun and the possibilities for photo mosaics are endless!!! I have been using Flickr and Big Huge Labs to do mine but I'm sure that there are several software programs out there that you can use!
*
*What is it about white???
*
Lately, my mind has been wandering from the comfortable color palette of COLOR that I am so accustomed to! Yes...I love color! For those of you who know me...you know that I have surrounded myself in deep, rich color! The color palette of our home's living area consists of deep olives, reds, and golds. Our master bedroom is done in brown and seaside blue and our Tea Rose bedroom (guest room) dresses in hues of garden green, pinks, and soft buttery yellow! Did I mention that I LOVE COLOR? Hehe!
*
However...
*
Lately I have found myself dreaming of white! Yes...cool, clean, crisp white!!! White rooms...white furniture...white dishes...and yes, even white linens!!!
*
Maybe it's the summer heat...maybe it's my longing for that soft, sheer elegance that white so easily affords!!! Whatever the reason...I am in love with white!!! I wanted to share a few photos that I have found...that just makes me go "ahhhhhhh"!!!
*
*







Ahhhhh....white!!! Cool, clean, crisp white!!! My latest fantasy in white!!!
*
*
Well my friends...thank you for letting me share my latest fantasy...fantasies in white!!!
*
Please leave me a comment and let me know that you were here! I would love to visit with you!!!
*
Have a wonderful cool, clean, and crisp Monday!!!
*
Love ya'll,
Chari

****Just a little note: Sunday Favorites Criteria****
*
When I first started the Sunday Favorites meme, my initial thought was to offer a solution for getting a post out on the weekend without having to spend alot of time doing so...weekends are just a busy time for most of us! Copying and pasting a previous post is so quick and easy. Not only is this a quick and easy solution to the busy weekends, but it's also an opportunity to dig back into our blog archives and share a favorite "past" post once again! Many of us spend alot of time and effort creating a post and it just seems a shame that it is viewed only once and then forgotten about!
*
I would like to reiterate that Sunday Favorites is a meme about sharing or revisiting a post from the PAST!
*
I'm looking forward to seeing your Sunday Favorites reposts, my friends!

Hi Chari, love all the white, especially the close up of the Phaleonopsis.

Happy fourth Chari!
WE'll be doing the same thing here... steaks on the grill, fireworks in the evening, oh... and a little hometown parade right after breakfast!

Have a great one.

Beautiful, beautiful whites! Love the textures of them all -- you really notice the form and texture when all is white!
Happy Fourth, my friend!

I,too, have been drawn to whites. I have changed to white towels, and white bed linens. Clean, and simple, maybe that is it. Thanks for sharing beautiful pics. Enjoy the weekend.

Hi Chari! It's been so long since I've joined your Sunday Favorites party. I'm excited to be here. :)

Your fantasy in white is beautiful. I think we all have that fantasy to some degree...but then we have to live with it. Right?

Popping up from summer Stockholm. Really cool with white, huh?

Love it. Your fantasy is really me. Love the white. So clean, pure and honest.

Happy Sunday.

Greetings from Sweden,

Now that is my kind of fantasy. So beautiful. White is so much more than just a color. It is a feeling. A beautiful, soft feeling.

Sherry @ No Minimalist Here said...

xo,
Sherry
