I love it when people send me photos of white things. The two photos below are of The White CompanyĀ – a beautiful UK-based store that has everything from linens to kids’ toys to clothing. Michelle sent me the first photo agesĀ ago (around Christmas time last year, I believe), and my brother-in-law Jeff sent me the second one from St. Pancras Station in LondonĀ a couple of months ago.
Thanks to Michelle and Jeff for snapping these storefront photos. I’ll have to make sure to see them in person one day soon!
Our White Out series continues today with a look at what white goodness our readers have spotted from around the world.
In New York City, Jeff sculpted a family of simple white mushrooms.

In London, Lindsay snapped a photo of The White Company store (I’ll take one of everything please!).

In Toronto Sarah recently bought a couple of Le Creuset trivets that have such a pretty design. It looks like cast iron to me but this French Trivet is actually silicone.

And to round of today’s series, Daniela snapped a photo of this fountain sculpture during her visit of Nuit Blanche in Toronto earlier this fall. The sculpture, titled Viva La Dada, Baby!, is a tribute to Marcel Duchamp created by Jolie Fejer and Viliam Hrubovcak. It was part of the Dada Reboot! exhibit curated by Thom Sokoloski. Duchamp’s now-famous (in 1917 it was quite controversial) urinal, the Fountain is considered by some as one of the most important works of 20th century art.
