Happy White Wednesday, January 13, 2010

Hello, dear and kind friends! Thank you for stopping by for another fun White Wednesday. As most of you know, I am a pink girl, but I do have a little white around my house. I love white and think it always looks so classy and elegant. The top picture is a bird house in my garden, and I am so longing for spring when little birds will build their nest in it. I have been watching a pair of cardinals and a pair of bluejays at my feeder on my patio. Love those sweet birds! Next, you see some beautiful vintage millinery on a lovely wall hanging made by a sweet friend. The third picture is a pair of my baby shoes made from felt. Can you see the holes where the moths have been? Then you see my baby dress. Also, a favorite little pillow with some crochet, embroidery and pearl buttons. I am closing with a vintage Valentine. I am looking forward to Valentine's Day, aren't you? Aren't we lucky we have a special day to celebrate LOVE? This was always my favorite party day at school, both as a teacher and as a student. I loved those corny but sweet little Valentines we received from our classmates. And, sometimes, we found out we had a "secret admirer"!!!

Please visit Kathleen of "Faded Charm" to see all the other whites today. Thank you, Kathleen, for being our hostess each week. To visit Kathleen and the other participants please go here: http://fadedcharmcottage.blogspot.com/

I hope you have had a good week so far and that the weather is a little warmer for you now!! Have a blessed rest of the week!

C'est Moi, Julie Marie said...

Hello Vicki... your birdhouse looks so cute, I can hardly wait for Spring, and to see a photo on your blog of the little birdies who choose it for their home! Your whites are so pretty, I love the gorgeous piece you got from from Amy at Bunny Rose Cottage, and your baby shoes and dress are precious... I loved those little Valentines from school as well, and the pretty boxes we would make (with the help of our mamas of course) out of crepe paper to put them in... more happy childhood memories! Love to you... xoxo Julie Marie

Beautiful, Vicki. Yep, I think we all love Valentine's Day. I'm hoping for roses this year instead of chocolate, sugar. We'll see...

Hi Vicki ~ What lovely white goodies you have for us to enjoy today. My favorite is the dear little pillow. I also looked at the previous post of your Pink Saturday pretties. You have some of the most gorgeous pinks I've ever seen. Such as the handpainted cup and saucer, the pink roses snack set and the grand finale -the luscious pillow with the vintage bride picture on it!! Nearly swooning here ^_^

Have a Beautifully Blessed 2010...

Hi Vicki! I have a bird church in my garden, too! YES! I love Valentine's Day - especially the build up and all the hearts in the shops! I like V-day at school, too. It falls on Sunday this year, though. Hmmmm. Have a great day and thank you for sharing some lovely Bunny Cottage images!

you stole my heart with that adorable birdhouse and then I saw the baby shoes! Can't get enough of sweet old baby shoes. I started collecting them when my grand-daughter was born. Happy White Wednesday.

Vicki, your white collection is beautiful. Love the baby shoes and the sweet Christening dress. It looks like the one my own daughter wore. Thanks for sharing a little bit of white beauty today :-)


Debbie @ ribbonwoodcottage.blogspot.com said...

Hi Vicki, what a sweet post. Love those tiny little shoes. YOur pictures are beautiful!

June said...

Vicki isn't it wonderful to have those darling little shoes and the dress?! I wish I had some of the little things that I wore as a child.
Your bird house would look so great in my garden too. I imagine your birds love it just where it is, so maybe I should just build my own.
I love coming here to see your lovely things.

I love visiting here, Vicki...
Everything is so soft and sweet~
Your baby shoes and dress are precious.
I have only one of my shoes (a miracle nonetheless) ... I include it in my favorite Christmas ornaments!

What would you consider the safest way to remove yellowing from an old cotton baptismal gown? I have a sweet one from my husband's past and I don't want to ruin it~

I feel the season of winter brightening~
Thanks for adding to the light ♥
