Gorgeous gardens and such a cool white windmill too. It brings me back in time to 1979 when I went to Europe with my parents and we toured the an island that had 89 windmills on its small island. Thanks for the memory.

Good morning, beautiful. White is more beautiful than I previously imagined. Texture is better seen, contrasts are stunningly presented and motifs from flowers to linens make white a desirable COLOR...these are so lovely, these photos, and your generosity is beyond their loveliness, Karen. I can't wait to see your fabric....let me know when the check gets there....Anita

Such beautiful whites Karen! The windmill reminds me of the ones I saw in Montmarte in Paris...They were not white, but the same style.

Beautiful! I am in awe of the windmills...I don't think I've ever seen a beautiful windmill. My mind goes to old weather beaten gray windmills blowing in the Texas breeze! lol Enjoy your day! ♥
