White Wednesday

The one other souvenir I bought in NZ was this pretty print by a local artist. Something about the colours and the compilations called to me and it was easy to bring it home.
As luck would have it I had spotted the frame just before we left and had bought it just in case I would need it one day!
For now it is residing on my desk so I can admire it and enjoy the delicate features.
I snuck another tag in there too. I love them so much! This heart was once upon a time a key ring that was a gift from my sister, it broke ages ago and sat in my jewellery box just waiting. I had admired these type of jars for such a long time and finally collected a few of them at reasonable prices.
Then I found I was stuck for what I could put in them and where I could keep them. They get moved around a fair bit and refilled with different things often.
and lastly Boss is white when he's clean, unfortunately he doesn't stay that way for long!

Hope you enjoyed my bits and pieces of white. I am linking up to White Wednesday at the Faded Charm.

Be sure to go and visit to see some really beautiful images with lots of whiteness!

Have a great hump day!
