31st White Wednesday!!

Wow! Can you believe it. This is the 31th week that White Wednesday, hosted by Kathleen of Faded Charm has been going on…and strong! Kathleen thank you again and again for hosting such a wonderfully successful blog party! For those of you who want to see more participants in White Wednesday you can check them out here.

This week I really am all over the board of what to show…but after all 30 weeks one starts to run out of white to show..yes even those of us who love love white…so this is a strrrrrretch!


These are my everyday dishes


I have a pair of these wonderful French chairs in my living room. They were bright orange before I had them upholstered a few months back…I only had them for 4 years before that! One can’t move too quickly, you know…ha ha


Her leg..ooh la la


My guest bedroom


Pencils of my brothers and me. I was about eight


My wedding veil in my guest bedroom


A sweet child’s rosary


A pair of high-top baby shoes next to one of my most favorite little iron statues…a boy and a lamb. I was shopping in Northern Ca. in this little shop and saw this little statue. The owner ended up giving it to me…how sweet was that!!


Old clock works in a fancy white Victorian bowl


I love this old door plate…..


And lastly…some of you may remember Frick and Frack, my two geese. Sadly, while we were in Arizona we lost them. I know that living in the country as we do the risk is high for keeping animals outside. But we always thought that the fence around our pond would keep them safe from the coyotes , but apparently we were mistaken……I’ll miss you guys!

I hope you all have a wonderful Wednesday and please head on over to Kathleen’s site to see all the great links for this party!!

A wonderful strrrrrretch ; ) of white for today ... everything looks just great!

However, I'm very sorry to hear about Frick and Frack ... love the picture of them strutting all of their beautiful white.

Enjoy the day,

Gale, that little boy with the lamb and the plate, aahhhh, love those, and I had to enlarge the photo to get the full effect! Just gorgeous, as is everything you have.
hugs, hope you're having a great week!

Sue said...

I'm loving all the pictures, hard to pick a favorite! I love all animals, birds, and more. So of course I'm sad to hear about your geese.
Take care, Sue

Poor guys!...let's hope it wasn't a coyote! Great collection of whites, if we have to pick a fave, the drawings are the winners!

Yum Gale, I'm drooling over these whites of yours. Those chairs are so lovely and you have had them recovered in the perfect fabric. Oh I do love that door plate. I love to collect those.
I'd love to be a guest in that pretty room.
So sad about Frick and Frack. I know what you mean about country living though. Sometimes it's really difficult to have chickens and geese last very long.

I love all your whites today! I would have to say my favorite though is your gorgeous chair. Also those pencils are pretty cool!

Thanks for playing today and enjoy the rest of your week.

I enjoyed looking into your creative world through your blog. What an interesting combination of priceless treasures, artistic projects, and family photos. I am exploring the blogging community as a relatively new member. JoDee

Oh wow, can I come stay at your house sometime? It's just so....swoony! I don't think that's a word, but it fits! ;-)

I'm still laughing over your culinary concoction....tuna, mayo and bananas?!? I'm Catholic, and I've never heard of such a thing! I think eating that *could* be grounds for excommunication....
