Wednesday Whites from Summer days...
Late joining in today, but here are just a couple of white thrift finds from this past summer.
Join Kathleen at this link if you like viewing unique and pretty whites in the yard and house.
Just for summer floral memories...the last of the lovely hydrangeas from 2010. Such lovely colors with the cooler temps of September. Now dried for Winter pretties.
Here they are bringing a bit of color to the Front Living room. The green wire holder with bucket container was a Goodwill find. The lovely wrought iron plant stand was a lucky find on Craig's List. Don't underestimate the ability to find thrift store prices on this resource...You would be amazed!
These two little chippy wicker and iron banded wall pocket/baskets were found at a little clearance sidewalk sale this summer! so CHEAP!..Brought them home and added some of my dollar store brown paper shreds and topped them with some colorful distressed eggs. I love them hanging on the shutters.
I love this room in the morning. I tried to capture the mood it has in this photo. The sun rises on this end of the house and really this is the only room that gets a decent amount of sunlight... I love to see the sun shining across the worn wood floors. Most mornings you will find the pooches in here. It is my favorite room to walk through and feel the warm spots on the floor. I love my little cottage house.
Another favorite find this past summer...
Wonderful rustic Gothic frames with rusty wrought iron embellishments. Distressed White with just enough blue showing through to go with my blue room. This too, was also a fantastic lucky find on Craig's List. The seller was just TOO nice. She lived 40 minutes out of Charlotte, but had a boss who was coming to one of their associate companies and she got her to bring them to Charlotte for me to meet and pickup. How much nicer can one get???? Craig's List is not really a lot of scams and shams...All of my buys have been great, and the people were super....and the prices were unbelievable. Both Justin and Kam got their very recent vehicle purchases from Criag's List ads. (that's an upcoming post!...soon)
This is a full view of both. The decor on the wall in the middle is all thrifted from Goodwill.
Last white of the day...a furry one again...sleepy Woobie.
Please continue to say a prayer for our fighting Military heroes. This war continues.... Many families are now experiencing what I just went through for the last 7 months, and I feel an ache for them in my heart. It is still a fresh memory...I thank my Lord that Justin came home safe from the battles going on over there every day. They are protecting our freedoms and security 24/7. God bless them and bring them home.
