~White Wednesday # 115~

Time.......where does it go?  It's hard for me to believe there's only one week left of summer vacation before I send my kids back to school.  I,  for one am going to miss the slow paced lazy days of Summer. 

You know summer will be coming to an end when you see the Queen Anne's Lace all along the country roads.  They are such a simple, yet intricate flower that remind me of the olden days when things were a bit slower.  I wonder if time flew by for them like it does for me?  Enjoy!  xoxo K.

My featured blog today is Whimsical Musings

Cindy has a wonderful blog and Etsy store where she sells all kinds of creations she makes and is currently featured in the newest edition of Romantic Homes magazine.  Please take a moment to stop by and check it out and also congratulate her on her accomplishments:-)

  I also want to send prayers and thoughts to all affected by the horrible storms on the East Coast this past weekend.  I hope everyone is safe:-)


  1. I Love Queen Anne's Lace... alas, it does not grow wild in the Desert.

  2. Brides pay good money for Queen Anne's Lace and we have tons of it in the field, which I pick all the time. I love it but it's about gone now. Taken over by the yellow wild flowers. Thanks, as, always for giving us White Wednesdays. Always fun!

  3. Love that close up of the clock Kathleen. Enjoy your last week of summer...it did fly by!

  4. Thanks for being a gracious hostess!

Lovely blog, as usual, and I especially appreciate today because that means I have electricity (the VDOT crews are awesome removing fallen trees off road, and electric company getting us up and running after only 31/2 days), such is life in tidewater area of VA. Neighbors helped neighbor with downed trees and just visiting to pass the long hours.

  29. Time is passing so quickly-but why does winter always seem so long? Great Pics!

  31. Hey Kathleen!
    Summer is almost gone and I can't tell you where it went but it sure wasn't lazy, hazy or anything else for me... I have got to slow down a bit or before I know it - it will be Christmas. I love the Queen Anns Lace it is my favorite... it is pretty much done here.
    Yes, Jody is still here :) Long story...
    Blessings to you
