Good morning beautiful people. Come on in and welcome to my “yippie I have 1000 followers” party. Thanks for joining in the fun. Let me take your coat. Can I get you something to drink and maybe a piece of cake?
I see you dressed up all spiffy, you look beautiful!!
It is going to be a beautiful sunny day here, so what better festive color to dress in, than in white, it is such an airy, light and free color isn’t it.
That’s what I love so much about white. It sets the mood instantly without screaming for your attention. White is cool and serene and at the same time it is warm and cozy. White can be the center of attention all in itself and be the perfect backdrop for any color you want to put in the spotlight. White is versatile.
I think white is one of the colors that is at its best when it is combined with more whites. So many other colors don’t play well you mix different tones and hues of it, but white is the perfect ‘ton-sur-ton’ color, which is just a fancy French way of saying that you can put different color tones together.
I have always loved white, but there have been times when I thought I loved color more. I am going back to white, more and more. If you are one of my faithful followers you’ll know that, I have been painting things white here and there and everywhere lately. White never fails me, even the dullest of things becomes glamorous in a fresh coat of white paint.
And yet for all my love of white, I will never have one of those ‘all white’ houses, – I love color too much for that too – I love the way my ever growing white background allows me to play with any color touches that tickle my fancy.
White is such a great backdrop for any other color.
That’s why there definitely will be some white in my giveaway too!
You hadn’t forgotten about than one now, did you. In order to celebrate that I have now over 1000 followers (still blows my mind, unbelievable!!!) and to express my utter and heartfelt appreciation for all of you I am having a very special giveaway.
I am not going to reveal what’s in it, you’ll have to trust me on that one. But you can expect some industrial coastal cottage, something old and something new, something bought and something blue. There will be ‘Songbird originals’ and some Songbird loves, like flowers and birds and you will know it came from the Netherlands too.
Sound enticing enough for you?
I will be making three gift packages.
All you have to do to have a chance of winning is leaving me a comment.
If you link up to the party you will have an extra big chance, because one of the gift packages is reserved for party players only.
So let’s get this party started then, shall we.
You’ll have all week to link up, and you can link up any post that expresses your love for white. You can do a “why I love white” post, or just link up a post in which you have revamped something old and ugly into something glamorous and beautiful by using the star of all colors: white.
All I ask is that you link back to me in your post and that you don’t link up your blog, webshop, giveaway or your own linky party. Easy enough isn’t it.
And you can tell all your friends to come party too…
I really do love you all! Every one of you 1000+ smily faces.
Thank you for being my blog friend.
