And for what it's worth, "Flea Market Saturday" in German is Flohmarkt Samstag.
I learned that at Jade's White and Shabby, but I could've simply flipped any FMS post to Deutsch (German) in the nifty translator I installed here several weeks ago. Jade has one too, but you'll have to scroll down a bit. She lives in Bavaria where in addition to standard German, some natives speak Austro-Bavarian, a High German language that isn't the same as German/Deutsch.
The plate shelf at Melly's Shabby Homestyles isn't totally white-on-white, but still looks quite cool and refreshing on a hot summer day.
Melly lives in Germany, so naturally the posts are in German, but include abbreviated English versions.
The adorable colander at left is at Vintage White Magic, another Bavaria-based blog written in German.
Neither Shabby Homestyles or Vintage White Magic have translator widgets, but the photos at both are definitely worth the visit.
How could I not be enchanted with Marley & Lockyer whose owner Vanessa Lockyer loves all things white, French, and also designs pillow covers based on "bus rolls" with mileage to two of my favorite cities, London and Oxford?
If your idea of a cool retreat in the heat of the day is a library or a bookstore, then don't miss Elena's Postcards from Amazing Bookstores. Imagine an opera house converted to a bookshop, where the boxes are reading hideaways. Or old cathedrals put to the same use, with cafes for earthly sustenance.
If you have a weakness for chocolate and other goodies,
feast on Elena's fabulously yummy Postcards to Savor.
And last, but not least - since one (but alas, only one) branch on my family tree came from Edinburgh, Scotland, I was thrilled that a friend sent the link to spectacular photos of Edinburgh Castle at night.
Have a great weekend!
