It’s White Wednesday! Please visit our lovely hostess, Kathleen, at www.fadedcharmcottage.blogspot.com to find some pretty white treasures bought to you by your blogging friends!
I have always enjoyed this wicker plant stand that I purchased at an antique store a few years ago. I know the geraniums aren’t white, but I couldn’t resist putting then in the stand to show off it’s pretty white details.
A close up view
This pretty frame was a find at the antique flea market…I’m sure it’s not an antique, but I love the detail. It came with a textured white paper that I can’t seem to remove in order to put pictures there…I think the white makes a pretty picture in itself.
I know these aren’t all white, either, but I had to show them to you, and I don’t know of a yellow or green event yet! These pretty doilies were in a stack of other crocheted doilies at another antique store. I’m pretty sure they were done by hand, probably as a gift, as they are in perfect condition and unused. I saw a peek of yellow sticking out, and couldn’t believe that I found two matching! I’m trying to decide how to display them, since I’m certainly not going to take a chance on getting them dirty. Perhaps a pretty white picture frame?
A glimpse of the bathroom on one side of the sink.
I couldn’t get a better picture of this bar of soap, but it is some kind of a floral design. It was a gift from a dear friend…a “just because” gift…I can’t bring myself to unwrap it…someone might mistakenly use it to wash their dirty hands!
I found this votive candle holder at T.J. Maxx about 3 years ago. White and covered with roses…it had my name written all over it!
Here’s another picture in the kitchen in a different light, and another view of the top when it’s turned slightly.
The little soap dish was also a gift from the same friend…she finds the sweetest things! I know, I know, it’s got blue in it…sorry.
A birthday present from my granddaughter a few years ago…one of my most treasured possessions. Of course, I say that grandCHILDREN are a wonderful treasure of memories. I know you grandmas agree!
I apologize for sneaking other colors into my white today…I have many whites, but these are just some things I thought you might enjoying seeing. I’ll try to stick to ALL WHITE next week!
White is my favorite background color…it gives me a sense of calm and space… it is known to reflect the light, and light in my house is one thing I really need. In the winter or when it’s raining, I turn a lot of lights on, as it brings a sense of sunshine. We do need to watch those electric bills, though, so we only have the lights on where we happen to be at the time.
Thanks so much for joining me today for White Wednesday. Don’t forget to join Kathleen and the other participants…I’m sure they have some lovely whites just waiting for your arrival!
We have blogging friends that are in need of prayer…please check my sidebar for a couple of them…Amy, and Andrew…and there are so many others…please continue lifting them up for healing of their bodies.
Please remember to pray for our country…there are proposed changes that none of us bargained for, so please stand strong and speak out if you are not in favor of them. I heard just today that there is talk of a “new set of founding fathers”, because “the original founding fathers do not deserve the loyalty we’ve given them”…friends, that is a very scary statement…please pray that God will continue to protect and bless America.
My good friend, Lynn at http://lynnslovelies.blogspot.com/2009/09/one-nation-under-god.html has a very important message. Please click over to her blog and read what she has shared with us today.
God bless each and every one of you!
