Simple White

 The first of all single colors is white ... We shall set down white for the representative of light, without which no color can be seen; yellow for the earth; green for water; blue for air; red for fire; and black for total darkness. ~ Leonardo Da Vinci

I find myself being drawn to white ceramic. It started with this white pitcher.

I have been enjoying this lovely pitcher so much.  Greenery looks so fresh and serene in it.  No blooms are necessary.  The spareness of color only adds to the simplicity.

Next, I bought a retirement gift for a friend. I found a simple white pot and fell in love with it.

Since it was purchased a bit before the party, I "stored" it on my windowsill.  I came to love it. I found myself wishing I had bought two - one for Martie and another for me.   In this photo, it's next to my purse on the day of the party - so I wouldn't accidentally forget it.  It even looks pretty with my purse, don't you think?

Then, this weekend, I found this rippled white vase. I have the pitcher at one end of my kitchen window sill and this vase at the opposite end.  I'm currently using the vase to start rooting some hydrangeas.. 

I have a feeling there will be more white items finding there way into my home in the future!
