White Wednesday...



I thought today I would join Kathleen at Faded Charm for White Wednesday.
Can you believe that this is Kathleen's 100th White Wednesday post???
White Wednesday has been such a huge success and has brought many a 'white lover' together
because of it.

I want to congratulate Kathleen on such an inspired party theme.
It has been such a pleasure to take part in it over the past two years.



Some of the whites residing at my house.



I collect little vintage books. Especially books in these neutral shades.

I haven't read these yet, but I will!
I'm especially anxious to read the Little Lame Prince.
Intriguing title, don't you think?





Jars of any kind are always on my mind when I go shopping.
The bottles shown here are not vintage of course, but I love them just the same.
Don't you love going to an auction or yard sale and finding a box of bottles
for hardly anything at all?



Speaking of-
I went to an auction on Saturday and came home with a few treasures.
I don't get to go to many auctions, in fact, this was only the second auction
that I have ever bid on anything.
I've gone to many an auction with my husband, but few that sale anything I would be interested in.
I just don't have any use for a running gear off an old hay wagon.
(but evidently hubs does)



I did come home with the coolest old cast iron cook stove with some beautiful
scrolly detail on it to use for a planter on the porch.
It doesn't have it's top, so it will be perfect!


I caught Jackson on my bed the other day and he looked so comfy I had to get a shot of him.



He was sleeping so hard he didn't even stir when I took them.

I sure do love this kitty!!!



And now...
for the best part!

I won two giveaways last month and had to share my wins today.
(since they go so well with the the WW theme)
I received this beautiful package from Marie at Lost Bird Studio
and inside were the prettiest things you have ever seen.

Don't you love how she wrapped this???



I am so excited to now own one of her beautiful charms!



This heart stole my own as soon as I unwrapped it!
Isn't it gorgeous???

and
this tag has my name written all over it, don't you think?


Such a beautiful piece of artwork Marie.

I love every detail!

All Marie's work is gorgeous. I have followed her for a long time and enjoy
seeing all the many things she creates.



The second giveaway I won was over at Debra's Capers of the Vintage Vixens.
Debra has a blog party called Bloggers' Bodega.
It is such an awesome get together of bloggers and I love going down the list when I can
to see all that there is out there. So many treasures to be had!  

I was lucky enough to win this pretty little shoe from Lynn at The Vintage Nest.



Love, love, love it!!!




Look at this!
It just makes me smile every time I see it!



Fit for a queen!
Thank you so much Debra and Lynn!


If you have the chance to go to Kathleen's, you will enjoy looking through the links of all the amazing bloggers that share their whites with us.

Who knew white could be so colorful!!!

And even your cat is white! I love the pink nose and pink ears. There is a special place in my heart for those who care for cats. What a nice collection of neutral books. I can't say I have ever seen neutral books but perhaps I should be on the look out. Thank you for the inspiration!

As always I'm in love with all your whites! Have a lovely day and enjoy your garden, I think it will be wonderful now.

I can only HOPE that my gardens come out nicely this yaer ... yours are just breathtaking, as always.

Hugs & love to you sweet friend,
Have a beautiful eve ...

Hello my sweet friend, I haven't been around for quite awhile. I took on two new jobs that have pulled me right away from blogging.
I'm in the temple one day each week, and I am now a "Peer Parent". I work through The Foster Foundation and with the Courts and DCSF. I help troubled parents who might loose their children. I really enjoy it. It keeps me busy. I'm getting it all together so that I can hopefully join blogging again. I miss it.

I love your new header and all you wonderful gifts. And I am your 111 comment. Wow!

This is my first visit to your blog and it is absolutely sublime in every way. I have gone back through some older posts, and have sooo enjoyed them all. What a delightful eye for beauty you have! I needed some peace in the middle of some craziness, and found it here. Thank you for that!!

These books are wonderful...I too, love the neutral covers!

Hope your weekend is going wonderfully! We have a new little grandy and her parents with us for a week! I'm just enjoying visiting around today!

Happy Memorial Day, sweet friend ~ June, your gifts are over the moon gorgeous, your creations are exquisite, Jackson is darling! You deserve only the best to b surrounded with in this world ... I do believe you re. The pece & serenity that flow in your photos of your home, your creations & surroundings give me a delight.

Our week has been a challenge. The well went down, of course, on a holiday weekend. We have no water.

On the up side ... last night our wonderful son, Emery, had a SURPRISE 50th anniversary party for us. Oh, yes, tears of surprise. What a wonderful moment & gathering.

Soooooooooooo, this week has been a challenge ... but ... there is tomorrow.

Have a beautiful week, sweet friend.
Love to you, June,
TTFN & hugs,
