White Wednesday, Twig Style

Can you stand  more pics of all the stuff I'm carting over to the new house?
Hope so!

There's a wee bit of repetition here, but enough new stuff, so hey, why not?

I made another run this afternoon, and as luck would have it,
there's plenty of white here to justify my 
participating in Kathleen's fabulous weekly

So let's get started!

Looking out into the backyard from the kitchen.

We don't live on 9th Street, but when an old street sign
is this awesome, does it really matter?

Today's big addition to the kitchen / dining room was my aluminum kitchen cart.

Just goofing around.

I want to hang these awesome vintage signs inside the frame.
I have another sign to add, and I think it'll be kinda cool once I get finished.
I'm going to use one of these below, I'm leaning towards "air conditioned"...

Just beyond the kitchen door and into the entry hallway...

...which leads us directly to the living room,
or as my husband so adorably refers to it,

the parlor.

{ ooooo, talk vintage to me, bay-bee! }

More random stuff brought over from our current home.

Please note that nothing you see will likely remain
in the same place you are seeing it here.
With the exception of the kitchen and dining room.
The pedestal will probably end up in our bedroom, 
and that sweet oval painting will fo' sho' be hung lower.

I told you I was OCD about this stuff!

Also, please remember that we're not living here yet.
We're still in our current home, I'm just bringing things over as time allows.
We won't be moving in lock,stock and barrel for at least another month.

And finally, the loo...

Just added a few toiletries and what-not's
to the fence shelf I cribbed from my booth.

Oh, and my darling pink stool, too.

Aren't these vintage hospital canisters just da bomb?
Purchased from the amazing Marta at For the Love of Junk.

Ta da!
The end.

For more lovely whites, I hope you'll pay Kathleen a visit at
Faded Charm.

Oops, sorry ladies!
I had to delete the previous version of this post and re-post it due to blogger screw-ups.
When I did, it wiped out your comments, I'm so sorry!

Hi Anne,

I am loving your sweet things around your home and looks like you will have a lot of posts for White Wednesday.
Love everything especially your cute pink chair, and ninth street. That is lovely, the tongue depressors cannister.

Enjoy the rest of the week

Tricia - A Rosy Note said...

Everything is looking all nice and homey. I love your street sign and pink stool :)

Anne Marie said...

you decorate rather sparse don't you? HOW DO YOU DO THAT?? it seems I just can't! especially with all the color going on in the it because of the kids? the bright colored rooster outside? what? tell me Anne!

because i love what you are doing.....

i should do a post on my 'dilemma' and see what you guys think
(working on that club btw)

Reinspire said...

This is so much fun! You will not bore us! That pink stool in the loo is too adorable! Like the Apartment sign, too!

Deb said...

I am just loving your beautiful white home already, can't wait to see more!

Anne - Fiona and Twig said...

I just have to comment here on Anne Marie's comment above...

"you decorate rather sparse don't you? HOW DO YOU DO THAT??"

Anne Marie...girl!...I'm just bringing a little bit over to the new casa in dribs and drabs! You have NO IDEA how much crap I've yet to bring!!! ;-)

Catherine @ peace love sweater said...

I'm loving it all! My favorites are the yummy pink stool, the kitchen cart and I am so looking forward to your sign project! I can tell that project is headed in a great direction! Congrats on your new home! I can hear your excitement in your posts!

Jill said...

It's fun to watch you add to your new home. What lovely items you have!! It's all fantastic!

Blooming Rose Musings said...

I am just loving how you are moving in. Slowly is absolutely the best way to do it! I'm still laughing over your cat's litter kitty has the same technique of peeing! He's 27 years old!!! I also love how you say you have so much "crap" too! It's all nice, but I meant to sell it, not get attached to it! This is great fun and your posts are fabulous!

peggy aplSEEDS said...

how nice to be able to transfer bit by bit and not have the whole lot all at once. isn't it exciting to decorate a new home?

Blue Creek Home said...

I love playing house! Can I come over and play too?

I can't wait to see her all dressed up for the holidays!

Hi Anne,
You know what I like so much about you? It's your confidence in everything you do. You know your style and it's so you and so beautiful, just like you.
The way you decorate your home is so warm and welcoming. It makes me want to change everything in mine and go completely vintage.

Love your white wednesday post. Keep it coming.

Have a great day!

Polly said...

So many cool things you have! Those canisters and that pink stool and the numbered tin planters and the signs and, and, and....I could keep going!



Jessabells said...

Anne, I think the house is really looking great. You definitely have some major decorating talent. Have you went into the outside buildings yet? I'm sure it is hard going from one place to another and working all at the same time.

Thanks for stopping by my blog earlier.

Can't wait to see more.

your friend,

Studio Gypsies said...

So love your pictures! We are building a cabin and I know it is so exciting to get to paint and decorate and all that stuff! I love the window on the wall in the kitchen. I have a few of those and I use dry erase markers on them to write my favorite bible verses and inspirational messages to myself! AND the rest of the family! Its fun cause you can change them up with the feeling of the day!

Angie@vivalacottage said...

How fun to have a clean slate to play with! Makes me want to toss it all out, paint it white and start over.
Happy new home,

Kathy said...

Anne - Your home is simply lovely, and the perfect match for your vintage treasures... Looking forward to pics of your progress!

Have a beautiful day! Kathy

The light is so beautiful & calm. Watching your home evolve is going to be a joy :-)

Meri Wiley said...

Hi Anne,

Your rooms are looking wonderfully perfect. You mention buying those hospital canisters at "for the love of junk" but she doesn't have a link to a shop on her blog. Does she have an online store? If so, could you please share her site with us.


Theresa said...

I am moving in with you:) Love all of this beauty! Isn't it fun to still have a place to leave all of the stuff you don't want to move?

Enjoy your day, I can see you are having a ball!

For a house you are not living in yet it is starting to look great already!
But he, if you have such great stuff to work with you only have to plunk it down somewhere and it looks amazing.
Enjoy your new home and I hope the wait for the final-moving-in will go fast for you.
