White Wednesdays ...

Time for another White Wednesday posting of anything that's white (or close to it!)
Visit Kathleen here to see more:

Do you love blue and white china, and old linens and lace, and beautiful yellow roses (Kurt gave me a dozen when Justin was born), and tea much as I do?

Sometimes items that are laying flat on a shelf, unseen, have to call out to you to come and look closer in order to find them...this little birdy was chirping, evidently because it was hidden on a higher shelf at GW. Now my little mail station for Justin's incoming and out going.

Heard that song "Pants on the Ground, Pants on the Ground??? Well this little wire basket took care of Pens on the Table ...Pens on the Table. (or NO pens) Now they have a home.

Anybody else love Toile?...I love that classic. These two little cups with handles were in separate places in GW, but my eye picked up on that Toile. Anybody else's eye able to pick it out quickly? I imagined them in a bath with extra toothbrushes for guests, or on a dresser in a guest room with mints in them.

Such a pretty French Country look...has a rough texture.

This, I believe is a Christmas item... I loved the three miniature sparkly Christmas trees under the dome. Who says you can't keep Christmas out year round??? It is pretending to be a petite cloche here...

All of these items came from thrifting trips on occasions. They ranged from $.49 to the most expensive, (the picture) $3.99. That is pretty cheap feathering... I really love to find a bargain....beyond a bargain!! Can you tell???

Thanks to all who dropped in to visit and share my fun times....
Hoping you all have a great Hump Day...It's all down hill from here!

A sloppy doggy kiss from Angel Gideon, or a paw shake for those who don't like dawg breath!

Hugs and Thanks for Praying today for our Military people and their safety.

Oh, those Toile cups are gorgeous!! I am a fan of Toile, my dream will be to have a big closet with Toile wallpaper and very oh-la-la! ;-)
Love the "mail organizer", and You are right, there are times when the eye is faster then the mind, I have several treasures that my eyes found first. Thanks Julie for stoping by.
