WHITE WEDNESDAY!


It's time for another WHITE WEDNESDAY over at Faded Charm, and Kathleen is our hostess!

This is another window table that I made several years ago, and it's gone through several color changes, but I'm so happy with it being white now. It holds some of my concrete statues on the back porch.

I got this plant stand a couple weeks ago at a garage sale. I can't seem to pass them up, and luckily this one looks so pretty even without plants on it. That's a good thing too, because if I bought plants for all of the stands I have, I wouldn't be able to afford anymore plant stands!

Here's another plant stand from a garage sale. This one is holding flowers that are waiting to be planted. In the Fall it holds osage oranges, and in the winter it's big pinecones and greenery.

Last up is my favorite milk glass vase sitting on the dining room table. I buy a cheap little bouquet for it every week!
Now please head over to Faded Charm to see lots more whites!

I love that plant stand, I have seen the idea that I love of cleaning them up and using them at parties for centerpieces to hold cupcakes.

Oooh, very pretty! You found some great items. Maybe you could use the smaller plant stand for some candles too (and not break the bank ;) They'd be white candles, of course!
Happy White Wednesday,

WOW that plant stand! I love it and I love Tracie's idea of using it for candles. I too snatch up old plant stands, but don't have one like that yet. I will have to keep my eye out. Happy WW!!

Great Whites! I love them too but I don't have the greenest thumb. So other options are always nice. Yes candles certainly and I love Amy's idea of cupcakes. Thanks for sharing.

Jackie said...

Carol,
Have I ever told you how much I love to come and visit you here? I love your picture on your header and I'm thinking you made it...all by yourself.

I vote for red but I love the calmness of the white and it's good to have some calm with the energy of red. Once upon a time, I had a red kitchen with a Mary Engelbriet theme and Coke mixed. I left it that way for years and it was such a happy place full of energy when the kids were small.

You'll like peeking at my blog today when you see the Avon catalog. Have you ever seen it or do you have it? Picked it up out thrifting.

Bye bye for this morning...I hope today is the BEST for you!

Jamie said...

The multi-armed stand is wonderful! They're quite versatile, too.

I have one to use at parties. Just put clean, empty flowers pots on the stand and fill with flatware, napkins, etc. It's a really unique display item
