~White Wednesday # 94~



Is it already Wednesday again? Time sure has been flying by lately. I guess that will happen when you're busy. I wanted to share a great find I recently got from the ever so sweet Susie at From My Home to Yours. She has a fabulous Etsy shop that I like to visit often. I've been looking for an old oval wood bowl for my dining room table and hadn't had much luck. I spotted this great old white metal drawer on her site and thought it would look great in the meantime. It ended up being a little small for my table, but looked great on another cupboard in that room. Meanwhile, I was lucky enough to find a wooden bowl at the Flea Market on Sunday that I love(will share that at a later date). Here are a few photos of my new drawer filled with some silver and a lovely shade of tulips along with one of my favorite corners in my home. Enjoy! xoxo K.


I also wanted to share some awesome botanical bird prints that I got from Susie.

I'd been looking for some and these are perfect.....thanks Susie.


Lastly, I will be spending the rest of my week up at Monticello's redoing my booth so it's ready for the Spring garden show that starts this Friday April 8th @ 8am. You won't want to miss it.


Actually one more thing. I had a lot of you asking where I got my stencil for my wood tote from my last post. I've purched a few stencils from this site and I love them. Maison de Stencils.

  20. Your Whites are always so lovely! I was struggling to enter today since practically nothing I had in Wednesday's Post could pass for being White... the best I could do was my Whitish-Pink Cactus Blossoms *winks*... I know, I know, its a stretch... but I so Love participating in this particular Blog Party! I LOVE White in all it's shades... alas, too much color always seems to creep into my World so my feeble attempts over the years of an all White decorating theme have not fared too well... I could never keep it cleanly White anyhow. *LOL*
