Storms have messed up my internet service since Saturday, so I'm afraid you are going to have to wait until Wednesday for the real WHITE LIGHTENING post.
I've got some great photos of white homes that I want to share but I'm not sure how long my connection will last, so I'm going to bed instead of trying to post and losing the post at the last minute. No pretty colors today, just in case.
I leave for Casey Key at dawn on Monday. Dan and I will be shooting Nikki's house. You can see the Gulf of Mexico from the back. The yard is filled with swaying palms and gorgeous old oaks with wild orchids in the knotholes. Don't hate me.
P.S. The new ROMANTIC HOMES is now on sale and my dear friend Tara Frey's first installment of her new column appears on pages 18-19. It's all about Beautiful Blogs. A must read!

Since you'll have to wait a little longer for my thoughts on Decorating With White, why not visit www.whitecountry.blogspot.com. Outi is wonder woman in disguise. She cooks, she sews, she crochets, she lives a creative life, she keeps house, she runs a business, she dreams about a magical playhouse and it appears.
In case you want to try her wonderful roll recipe. Here's a translation of the measurements:
2 1/2 Hour bread
1 cup milk
1 cup water
25 g cube or 1 packet yeast
2 1/2 tbsp honey
1 tsp salt
5 cups flour plus extra
Outi lives in Finland...
