White Things & "What's Next" Revealed


Are we ready for a party?. . . .Country Whites Weekend begins Friday, December 21st--just two days from now. . . .Cindy and I will be up bright and early posting our linky party for you to join and enjoy. . . .Us country gals rise with the chickens, you know. . . .Not quite an early bird?. . . .Not to worry--the party will run all weekend long. . . .


Now--what to post and link? What indeed? I've been thinking about that myself. . . .Looking back through a few old photos gave me some ideas. . . .

 Mr. Smokey's baby picture. . . .

Enamelware pans at a flea market. . . .

A freshly made bed. . . .

A simple sampler. . . .

Vintage photos (close enough--there's white in them, right?). . . .


 A pet of a different kind. . . .

A basket of cotton. . . .

Mr. Rooster. . . .

A winter wonderland. . . .

All shades of white is the goal. . . .but, a touch of color here and there is certainly fine. . . .

Country Whites can mean so many different things--as individual as the people who join in. . . .We're anxious to see your ideas. . . .I'll be showing you our Christmas table--and a few other farmhouse Christmas touches--yep, I've changed things--again. . . .The opening photo is just a hint of what's to come. . . .I don't know what Cindy will be posting--she's keeping it a secret-- but you know it's gonna be something good. . . .



Country Whites Weekend 
held jointly by
The Country Farm Home
&

Link up here--or there--and you'll show up on both blogs--
two places to show off anything white--
but, you'll only have to link up once!



Now that I have your attention, guess what our next big project at The Country Farm Home will be. . . .
You've seen our renovation of the keeping room. . . .now, we'll be taking you on a journey of the living room make-over--in Farmhouse Style--lots of whites, lots of neutrals. . . .

We've already started, which is why you've only seen our kitchen and keeping room during this holiday season. . . .Next Christmas we'll have the entire house decorated and full of goodies. . . .Hopefully, we'll finish the living room long before that. . .

It's a room that definitely needs a new look. . . .

Living Room--Before
It was a perfect for 1930s tours--the setting was appropriate. . . .Now, it's our personal quarters and my fingers are just itching to get out the old cotton bagging for cushion covers, white linens for the windows. . . .slipcovers for the dated furniture. . . .a new old couch. . . .and farmhouse white all around. . . .with a pop of color, of course. . . .

Living Room--Before
I'll be telling you more about everything after the first of the year. . . .for now, we're doing the basics--the boring stuff--patch, paint, clean, refinish. . . .You know how it goes. . . .Ya gotta do the dirty work before you can have fun. . . .

Of course, we want you to join us on our journey. . . .Won't it be fun?

Living Room--Before

But, first we have a big party Friday with Country Whites Weekend. . . .Then I have a very special post for you on Christmas Eve. . . .That's all I can tell you for now. . . .but, I think the whole family will enjoy it.

Happy Holidays. . . .See ya Friday!!!!
