Congratulations to Kathleen for her wonderful success with the White Wednesday parties each Wednesday rain or shine. I have enjoyed joining in on many of these AND getting to view all the pretty whites so many bloggers have to share. Many many inspirations out there.

I haven't done one in a while just 'cause I have been busy, and mostly just trying to record life events in the crazy busy present days..BUT FOR THIS SPECIAL OCCASION...#100...I am joining in. She is having some fantastic giveaways to celebrate with everybody!

Join in yourself, either by posting some WHITES of your own, or just visiting to view all the participants. Go HERE!

Chippy white wrought iron, white roses and spirea, and vintage milk bottles...serene

One of three cane-back chairs I acquired last year, that I finally got recovered!!
You know I can't help doing it blue and white...

The other two were covered in this pretty red print to co-ordinate with the four Dining room chairs I have. They are in a perfect chippy/aged condition.

This is a photo of a mini-chandy that my dad just got wired for me in the redone kitchen.(found last summer at Habitat Re-Store)

It gives an added dose of cottage charm. I love it. He rewired it with a plug-in rather than straight wiring into the ceiling so that I can take it with me when we move! THANKS Dad!!... pretty soft white lighting over the sink now.

a large (24") creamy white clock found at Habitat for Humanity, the hands were broken, but I repaired it and now she tells time in the redone Guest room.

chippy white wrought iron "necessity paper" holder, white rosette heart...primping the redone Master Bath.

double cabinets over the frig~redone with chicken wire and a light, filled with white favorites and milkglass...

A Favorite of mine...a vintage crackled pitcher with cheerful polka dots to hold my kitchen utensils..sharing it again for this 100th party.

a Goodwill find - a tarnished silver candlabra painted white and given a touch of blue for the Guest Room.

**a few of these are repeat posted photos from recent posts. I apologize for any having to view again...just wanted to add them to the 100th white celebration party...

Gideon adds his own white arrhooo Congrats to Kathleen...he heartily approves of her White Wednesdays!

Hi Julie,
Thank you for leaving a nice comment on my blog, Love those chairs that you re-done, I just got one the other day, I'm sure I can paint it, but not sure about the upholstering, any tips for me?
Have a great day!

Thanks so much for visiting me! Love all your whites, but love your doggy the best! I just started doing the linky party thing cuz a friend helped me figure it out, lots of fun! I also lived in Concord for 10 yrs, loved it there. My oldest son, 25, just got out of the marines. He was in for 5 yrs. 2 times in Iraq. My middle son, 21, just got back from England, in AF stationed by Goldsboro NC. My youngest daughter, Kate, just finished 1st yr college. Think we have a lot in common? Love your blog and will visit often!

I love the toilet paper holder and the wrought iron and roses. All such perfect things to share for such a special occassion at White Wednesday. My chihuahua Holly would say hello to Gideon and Wobbie if she was awake right now, but she is getting her beauty rest.
