An Ivory Day

Ivory sweater, pale wool skirt . . .


A frosting of ice on the rusty hydrangeas, and snow to follow . . .


Cheesecake with a graham cracker crust . . .


Ivory silk dress cut out for Bella . . .


A soft corner to sit and watch the weather . . . .

So beautiful! I love ivory!

A beautiful day, indeed! I love ivories--my brother-in-law was married in his wife's native Devon, England and her sisters, the bridesmaids, all wore cream/ivory dresses and shoes of their own choosing. So pretty. I love creamy furniture, too.

First of all, I just love your blog. A friend told me about it and I couldn't be more inspired by your life. And I must admit, my 11 year old daughter hears every once-in-a-while, "Just guess what Bella baked now!" My Ellis loves to bake too :-)

But here's my question... silly silly but here goes: I love how you wear dresses and skirts most of the time. But how do you stay warm in them? Is it wool tights or a better secret? Just wondering so I can stay warm in my skirts too. Blessings on your family this cold and icy weekend.

That throw is gorgeous! I love me some cable-knit!

This post is a feast for the eyes for us winter lovers :)

This is absolutely my favorite palette. I'm obsessed with gray and ivory these days. I've seemed to have redone most of my house in this scheme! I love that gray can be "warm" when it's paired with cozy textures!

Bliss.

Love your blog, love your wardrobe and your girls, and wish I was in that cool scene now instead of baking here in our Australian summer

Beautiful, so calm and peaceful looking. That cheesecake looks fantastic.

Lovley photos. I just made a top with that same neckline, it is my new favorite style of blouse!

What can I add to what the others said? The only thing to do on such days is what you're doing - taking advantage of that meditative feeling that comes on when it snows. And your colors - so soothing.
You're a real inspiration, Anna.

Although I haven't been able to wear the color well or have it unstained in my house full of children I found this post beautiful. Such a smooth, soothing color.

Soothing to the soul.....so beautiful! I am inspired to go redo even a small corner of my home.
Did Bella make that wonderful cheescake? Of course she did....

Ooohhh--more photos of Bella's dress, please?! Is it for a special ocassion?

Tracy said...

I love your frosty pictures ~ I may need to come back and visit when the mercury hovers around 37C/98F here later. At 7am it's already 26C/78F.

Enjoy your snow and the cosiness of inside.

Anna, is your couch slipcovered? If so did you make it? I would love to see!

I have followed your blog for some time now and I'm finally curious enough to say and ask... Anna, you seem to have a large following from Down Under (compared to other blogs I follow)...how did you all find this blog? I found it when my Mom sent me a link to a post about homeschooling.
Thanks,
Colleen in Iowa

I didn't realise that ivory could be so lovely. Anna that throw is beautiful, if you know the source of the pattern I would be grateful to learn of it.

To Colleen above, I am also from Australia.
