~White Wednesday # 106~

I wanted to thank everyone who left such lovely comments about the changes in my kitchen.  My Mom and Dad came up to visit us last week and my Mom brought me a lovely boquet from her garden.  She knows me well and it was filled with all white flowers so I could use it for one of my WW posts.  Her garden is amazing and I got my love of gardening, decorating and junking from her.  My love of collecting I would say I got from my Dad though.  We might have different collections, but one can never have enough, right Dad? :-)

I decided to replace the flowers I had used when taking photos of my kitchen with these new ones to share in my post today.  I love how they looked next to my brown transferware dishes.  I also love how she used the pod of the columbine for greenery with the feverfew and white roses....love this combination!  I recently purchased this linen towel along with some pot holders from Wisteria.  They have ruffles and I am really like them.  Enjoy!  xoxo K.

Today I'm featuring Courtney at French Country Cottage.  Her slip covered chairs really caught my eye last week and her last post showed an amazing ruffled burlap tablecloth that she just made.  I love it!  I wish I had the talent to make some of the amazing items I am always seeing out in blogland.  If you haven't seen some of the talent that Courtney possesses, you'll want to hop on over to her blog and check it out.

  21. Kathleen, I love your Brown Transferware, I also collect it but have not a lot. There is something so antique, and cozy about it. I just love your new kitchen I think the doors look so charming with the beadboarding.
    Courtney's blog is one of my all time faves, and she's an incredibly kind person. So glad to see you feature her. Thank you again for hosting on Wednesday, xxx tami

  40. Hi
    I visited earlier but I guess I didn't leave a comment, I must have been in a rush... not unusual these days. Trying to get ready for the next show, it should be fun. I am sitting here waiting for Jody to get in, she has been driving for 3 days and should be getting in soon... hope so - it is past my bedtime.
    Have a wonderful Fourth
    Blessings
