~White Wednesday # 123~

Well the weather here has gotten very chilly and was only 32 degrees when I took the kids to school this morning....bbrrr.  I thought today would be a perfect day to share some photos of  my snowberries.  (Sorry for the poor quality of these pics...I'm still in desperate need of a new camera.)

I placed them in an old oil can and have them sitting in my laundry room next to a really cool old chalkboard that I picked up last month.  Our laundry room is where my family comes in and out of our house most of the time, so it's a great place for notes.  Still working on this room, but am really liking how it's coming along and can't wait to share. Enjoy!  xoxo K.

Michelle over at Petite Michelle Louise is my featured blog today.  I'm sure most of you are familiar with her blog and Etsy store, but if not, you are in for a real treat.  She was recently featured in Somerset Life magazine for her inspiration holders.

I love her style and she is so creative.  If you are in need of a white fix, you have to check out her Pinterest board.  I could get lost for hours in all her inspiration:-)



  1. Greetings!

    Wow, 32 degrees you say?!?!? It's JUST getting cooler over in in SoCali! :) Love the pics of your snowberries and the lovely blog you have featured! It's always a pleasure linking up on here when I can...so much talent to explore! :)

    Have a wonderful day & thank you again for hosting!!!


  2. Gorgeous... all of it!! My post this week isn't white... that wasn't good timing. Hopefully next week I can join the party... off to explore the entries!!

  3. How beautiful! I will have to check out her Pinterest for sure! Thanks for having us over!

  4. Hello there Kathleen! I really like how your snowberries look in that old oil can, and would love to see more of your laundry room. The snowberries remind me of JDL magazines.
    I'm so excited you're featuring Michelle. I agree her blog and Pinterest photos are filled with heavenly whites. And oh my, that girl is talented!
    Try to stay warm, and thanks so much for hosting,

  5. Kathleen, the snowberries look beautiful with the grey of the oil can and chalkboard. I like the white base too. I'm very familiar with Michelle. She's a sweetheart, and a very talented lady.

  6. Hi Kathleen,
    I am so loving the spotlight on the wonderful Michelle!!!
    Her things are gorgeous and she deserves to be in somerset every issue :)

    So sorry my link has taken up to linky spots
    the linky went crazy as I was posting and came up error :(

  7. I love the combination of the old pitcher with the snowberries against the old blackboard. Looks great! We've had some cooler weather here as well, especially at night. I guess it helps remind me of what time of year it is. The time seems to fly by. Hope all is well with you and your family!

    Take care, Sue

  8. Oh thanks for featuring Michelle. I popped on over and she has some great religious items that are perfect for Advent and Christmas. Beautiful!

  9. Love the snowberries! And old chalkboards are always so neat looking! Thanks for hosting.

  10. WE had a bush with these berries in our yard when I was growing up. I never knew what they were called. We used to squeeze them between our fingers until they made a popping sound.
    LOVE your oil can in front of the chalkboard filled with the berries.

  11. ...i adore snowberries:)
    ~ but even more so, i adore sweet Michelle!!
    her artisan items are truely oh-so-lovely.

  26. Thank you for hosting. I've always wanted to join this party, but wasn't sure I met the criteria. Hopefully I'm good this time.

  27. Hey Kathleen!
    I finally get to come out to play again...I HAVE missed coming by. How is it going getting ready for the Monticello Christmas window...I keep thinking about pink and gray and wondering how you are going to pull it together? Ours (holiday open house) is November 10...I need to get busy.
    You asked me about my bedsprings...it is still sitting here. Soon, I will get it over to the shop.
    I can't wait to see your laundry room...I LOVED your bedroom that you posted about a while (a long while) ago...your bedding is beautiful...in fact, I am going to go check it out again.
    talk to you soon,

  28. I love your snowberries, and can't wait for your laundry room reveal. What I'm seeing already inspires! Petite Michelle Louise is one of my favorite bloggers as well, and I visit her pin boards often. Your feature post about her was very nice. Love your White Party...it's always inspiring! Thank you for hosting!

  29. Thank you for hosting - so many posts to read - wonderful. The snowberries look so delicate in the zinc container.
