So it was perfect timing when I received my copy of Country Living and saw that it was the White Issue. White is calming to me. I find rooms decorated in pale tones and neutrals peaceful. Just paging through the magazine was like relaxing with a nice glass of pinot grigio--another white favorite!
See if you feel the same way:

I'm seeing sweater vases all over the place. They look so cozy! These are actually pottery molded in a cableknit shape, but I've also seen them with fabric. I think you could easily make a fabric version, but since I don't have any white cableknit sweaters I want to cut up, I'll have to keep an eye out on my next thrift shop prowl.
So tomorrow I'm going to go out and buy myself some white flowers and put them in a white vase. And this weekend whenever I start to feel like I'm never going to be able to accomplish all I want to get done, I'm going to look at the white, take a deep breath, and say "ahhh."
Have a great weekend!
