random whites...

This week is just flying by! I can't believe that it is time to fly over to Faded Charm where Kathleen is once again hosting my favorite, White Wednesday! I thought I would share some random whites with you today...
A few of the new whites in my booth to a few whites in other booths... The kitty bookends are so sweet and I am loving the detail on the table...

Wouldn't you just love to play dress up and put that wonderful ruffled dress on?! I also changed the corner in my living room, again. I think you will agree that this works much better than the shutter... I even like the lamp there now! I put my little sand dollar garland on it and added a big starfish... I bought two of these windows and have the other one on the opposite side of the room for now... Since the other lamp will be staying I want to get a different lamp here ~ probably a tabletop one when I replace my Mom's tea wagon behind the love seat. I used to have my sewing machine table there (that is now in my Paris Hotel Suite) but look what my talented sister in law found... Of course it did not look like this when she found it ~ she gave it a little makeover and I love it (just might have to have it)! To see the before picture fly over to Christine's new blog AnthonyRosesShabHome. Christine always seems to find the best stuff! Here are a few more whites from her beautiful home...
Every time I visit Christine I want to paint the walls in my den and living room to make my whites pop. I guess that will be another project for my fall and winter list!! I am so happy that you stopped by today! Have I thanked you all lately for stopping by to visit? Have I said thank you for your kind thoughts, compliments and help when I ask for it? Have I said thank you lately for making me feel so at home in this big world of blogging? Thank you, thank you, thank you! Well, another school year has flown by and the next few weeks will be very festive around here. My son will be turning 16 in a few days and Jim and I will be celebrating our silver wedding anniversary! Wow...that made me feel real old! I am going to be taking a little break from blogging for a few weeks ~ but hope to pop in on you all to see what you are up to. When I come back I will have some exciting stuff to share! Here is a little hint... Have a Wonderful White Wednesday!!!

Alrighty Sandi...where should I start?
As you know, I've been gone for a week and then catching up with the world upon my return.
I sit here and read all what I missed and geez girl, you totally blow my mind with all the fun finds and fun stuff going on over there!
Let's see...
Happy Anniversary...Silver Sweet!!!
Happy Birthday to the little one...Sweet 16!!!

I am LOVING that curved top sewing machine bottom...totally worth stealing from the sis! haha
But what really grabbed my heart was the lamp shades...I so cannot believe that those (or some like them) where in your parent's wedding photo! IT WAS MEANT TO BE!!!! Now, you and hubby need to take an anniversary photo in front of them...be nostalgic!!!!! :)))))

It's so nice to be able to sit here and catch up with you...even though I've been traveling and having fun, there's nothing like visiting and catching up on the sweet things in life with friends!!!! :)))

I'm going to miss you on your break but I know that you will come back and have LOTS to share with us...I'll anxiously be waiting for you :)))

Have fun and ENJOY!!!!!

Oh, more white pretties...and yes, I do love her dress! Enjoy your break and Happy Anniversary!

I love those windows! Windows are my new favorite thing to paint right now - i love them - they have so much character and chippy paint!!! That sewing machine is also to die for! I love that paint colour - your right the white totally pops - do you know what colour the walls were painted in??? Thanks so much for visiting! :) Hope you have a good weekend!

Michella said...

Hi Sandi~
I love all your whites!! I especially love the window in your living room!! I actually have old (narrow) french doors propped up on both sides of the window in my dining room :)) I LOVE THEM!! I also love the singer base with the table top!!!
I think we would have a lotta fun together :))
We share very similar tastes in decorating!!
Looking forward to a wonderful friendship full of inspiration :))
