    As always, a great round up of recipes. I love Rachel’s “behind the lens” series. I also love Jessica’s beautiful rose tart. Thank you SO MUCH for including my tuna recipe in there as well.
    Sending hugs and love to Seattle from Atlanta. XOXO

    White symblolizes perfection- simply emphasizing imperfection.

    Would one purchase an all white- painting? As its use grows in size- at least in the sun-drenched land where I live- White is too harsh. Perhaps too pure. It shows the marks made by living to least advantage.

    While walls too often signify unfinished or fear of commitment of mistake.
    I believe the color cream adds more amenable visual pop and contiunity when used in trimwork or background.

    The one exception – blue and white Danishware. Every rule should come with an exception

      It’s funny, I never liked all-white walls… until we moved to the Pacific Northwest. Being SO far north, I’m suddenly very drawn to all-white everything. With our very blue-hued natural light, white walls majorly brighten things up (especially in the Winter), and it keeps things feeling a little more cheerful. Although, back in CA I’m probably more of a fan of color 🙂 Thanks for your comment, Lydia!!
