My first White Wednesday

La Tache in French means "To Try".
I have been drooling over all of the White Wednesday posts at Faded Charm for a very long time, but haven't had the guts to post anything of my own until today. Since this White Wednesday is the 100th White Wednesday, I thought it would be a great time for me to get up the nerve and show some of my white stuff!
Here is a little vignette for some of my pretty whites. A frame that I painted and distressed really helps pull it all together. I love the frosty white roses at opposite corners of the frame. I strung some small pearls in the frame to hold up the lovely wedding cabinet card and vintage BINGO card. I just used plain clothespins to attach them to the pearls.
The pretty little ballerina dressed in ivory sits overlooking everything. I added a pretty crystal necklace to one side of the frame.
These heavy candle holders were found at Goodwill and were perfect just the way they were. I have placed the boutineer that my husband wore in our wedding on top of one. At the foot of the candle holders is a vintage beaded necklace.
I made this pretty white rose with a simple coffee filter and placed it in a glass flower frog. I think it would look really pretty with a whole bunch of these coffee filter roses.
This vignette sits on top of my very favorite white cabinet. The bread dough roses on the front add a very romantic and shabby touch to it. You can see how I transformed this cabinet here.
Here is one last look at my very first white vignette for White Wednesday. Thank you for letting me join in and please go take a look at all of the amazing white posts. There are some VERY TALENTED ladies out there that truly take my breath away with their decorating!
Happy White Wednesday to you all!

Love your vignette! So sweet!

You're right, the frame ties it all together (frames the view, haha). Nice combination of old, altered, romantic (husband's wedding flower), and new.

Trisha...I missed this at faded charm! I can't believe it. Welcome to WW!!! It is probably my favorite because it is ALWAYS full of pretty stuff and I get so many ideas.

Now...I am blown away by your pretty things!!!! I love the frame and the pearls. I'm going to bug you and find out exactly how you did this. The photo is so beautiful...do you mind if I share it sometime and link to you if I don't make my own? And the coffee filter rose is to die for! I have to find out how to make those. GREAT White Wednesday post Girlfriend:)

HAHA! You fit in perfect. Lots of pretty whites for sure. I participated a few times, but ran out of white things. I'm more of a Fall-colors girls, so I don't have a whole lot of white in my house. It's so refreshing to look at though.

You did an amazing job!!! I love the whole thing but, that doll is soooooooo precious I couldn't get past her! Thank you for the sweet words about the necklace I created for my friend Cynthia! She loved it! Have a great weekend.
