Welcome to White Wednesday, January 6, 2010









Welcome, dear friends, to White Wednesday! This is my first time to participate in this event. A special "thank you" to Kathleen of "Faded Charm" for hosting this event each week. I wanted to show you a canister set that I received from my oldest son, Jeremy and his wife, Lindy and my grandchildren. They are a very pretty creamy white and are labeled "sugar" "tea" and then a "butter" dish. I have these proudly displayed on my kitchen counters. I received some yummy Estee Lauder perfume from my youngest son, Aaron and his wife, Corina and my grandchildren. Next, are some creamy white china dishes (with a few pink roses!!) that I have had for some time. This set of dishes is from Germany. I am also showing an angel that I have in my garden. I love the worn, chippy look of it. Last, I am closing with a vintage image (I am addicted to these, too, along with quite a few other addictions!!) of the famed actress Sarah Bernhardt. Notice the pretty white flower bouquet beside her. Thank you so much for coming by for a visit today. Please go and visit Kathleen and all the other White Wednesday participants to see what wonderful things they have to share with you. You can find them all here:

A thought for today: God's promises are like the stars; the darker the night, the brighter they shine!!

Good morning, Vicki. Thank you for sharing your lovely whites with us. There is a lot of white stuff around at the moment; the UK is covered in a blanket of snow. Time for tea, I think, lol.

God bless you, my dear.
