Repetition In White

I was pondering Friday's photo challenge of repetition while
preparing some shots for White Wednesday.

I started with this cabinet, located just inside the front door.
Very quickly I noticed that nearly every vignette in my home is based
on repetition. Seriously, look at this display alone!
The jars, finials, fabric balls, birds, all in multiples.
Creme de la creme, check out the
mirror reflecting not one, but TWO more mirrors.

Panning just the front room alone, netted more examples of my
obvious attraction to multiples, to repetition. I will only show a few
or this post would be much too long.

Analysis would venture some theories I suppose.

Multiples are everywhere, I even had two children. :-0

Not satisfied with one necklace, I nearly always wear three.

Yep, more than one of these too.
Justice and Howie

OK, a reprieve. Just like my kids, one boy, one girl.
I may be repetitive, but I'm not obsessive.

That's because you can't have only one of something good...well, I guess Husbands are the exception to the rule!!!!

I'm so happy to have found your blog here at White Wednesday.
It's beautiful and I am a new follower.

Sue (Someone's Mom) said...

I'm looking around my house and I don't do that. I love the look, but I think I tend to mix textures and sizes in groupings. I don't really "collect" anything. Interesting post, has me thinking!

gail said...

I absolutely love your blog...can't wait to check out your etsy.

Virginia said...

I like it all, everything is put together just wonderful!!

Bead and Needle said...

Well, I believe they are called "collections", instead of multiples. :-) However, you might need more than two puppies for a collection...THOSE would be multiples. Let me know when you get them - I'm really good a petting puppies!

Had some catching up to do - can SO relate to your post on rudeness last week, too! Had a dear friend take it on the chin at the new Wine Store that opened up last week...we took care of that!

Why not have multiples when they're as wonderful as yours?!? I love the wooden finials best! Julie <3

Theresa said...

Evi said...

just love the cabinet with all the wonderful multiples.
There certainly is more fun in numbers.

June said...

Nobody does repetition better than you friend!!! Gosh I love your decorating style.

Rebecca said...

Thanks so much for all your encouragement lately, I appreciate you so much.
Love the photo's you presented and I guess I haven't thought of collections as multiples but then again I have 6 children so collections might fit me better!
