One of my favorite rooms in the house

do laundry.

I love to fold it into tidy piles;
one for each member of my family.
One of the ways 
I say 
I love you

I can't get enough white lace

I wish I had something new to show you
I'm only
about doing something new

I'm busy here...
family...wedding plans...preparing for school...
purging...organizing...taking stuff to the shop...
knee surgery for the husband...BIG birthday parties...
making new connections...learning to encourage...
taking time to just be quiet...
did I say 
wedding planning?
How about you?
What are you doing during these last few days of summer?
Happy White Wednesday!

annie, fannie , and abigail in white...

I discovered this booth a few years back
at my most favorite place to shop
in Portland, Oregon.

It is run by twin sisters
Donna and Diana,
their business

Is that not the most adorable name?

I stand in absolute awe of their wonderful spaces.
They definitely  have the art of presentation
 the coolest stuff.

How do they part with it?

My daughter says...
that may just be our problem here.

I'm not sure if the  inspiration is for my home
or for my business.
Maybe both?

Not too much white here
justa dolly head
whatcha think about those?
Me, not so sure.

I'm always sad to leave .
(Just ask my family-they have to drag me out)
I feel such a kinship
It could be all of those bloggy-friends that sell there.

like Debbie
(my shabby roses)

(Kindred Roses)

(Colby Cottage Happenings)

and don't forget Lisa (A thing for roses) and Isabell (Maison Douce).
then there is Bella Shabby, Calamity Jane, 
and so many more.
there is a lot of talent under that roof.

I didn't buy much
just came home
to re-decorate.
and uncover all of that junk I've been stashing.
Happy White Wednesday to y'all.

look ...

it's water for 4!

We had a quick little get away
to the city
This country girl 
got a kick out of the water fountains

right  there


I gotta get out more!

I'll be back later with White Wednesday pretties
from  one of my favorite places...in the whole world.
see ya soon...

wedding whites...

 wedding plans are coming together

first things first
...the dress...

for  white wednesday
 I thought I'd show you 
she didn't choose

they were all so beautiful 

so was she

(we went prepared)

all of her bridesmaids were there

along with her daddy 
and baby briscoe

 and all agreed that 

she did find the one
the one that  made her come alive
the one that made her glow.

it's a gorgeous and fun one
it's a surprise
~so I can't show you ~

 I can show this very fun 
going-away bag
I know you all will appreciate 
at its finest
 it's  a clue
to where we are going.

It's been 10 years 
since I last planned a wedding.
things have changed
 there's the internet...
Do you know how many wedding blogs there are?

We are having fun!
Happy White Wednesday...
