White

"White is not a mere absence of colour;
it is a shining and affirmative thing,
as fierce as red, as definite as black.
God paints in many colours;
but He never paints so gorgeously,
I had almost said so gaudily, as when He paints in white."
--Gilbert Keith Chesterton [British author, 1874–1936]

  4. Ah, I love those pictures! Especially the last one of the snow covered trees.
    As a child I lived (and was born) in the mountains and we would get lots of snow. Often when my father would drive, we would watch the trees from the car window and call them "whipped cream covered winter trees".
    I miss those kind of "mountain" winters, filled with snow and sun and very dry type of crisp cold, with no wind.;)

  8. I never thought about how much naturally occurring white there is in nature. These are all beautiful white images.

    I recently saw a white Martha Stewart cake stand that I can't forget. It was so sweet and appealing. I really coveted it. I don't even bake cakes except for the occasional birthday cake. But I want that white cake stand!

  14. Beautiful! I would do my whole house in shades of white if it weren't for budget and kids! I did just fill up my mantel with milk glass, though. :)

  16. Great pics! The purity and cleanliness of white. I admit when I see mounds of freshly falled snow I often get a craving for vanilla ice-cream!
