Practicing Random Acts of White Wednesday

Random shots taken around my home for this year's first WHITE WEDNESDAY... Thanks Kathleen for hosting! Stop by her blog to see the humongo list of other participants.


Teeny crusty scale.


Top section of mirror bought ages ago.


Clock face and a bumpy gourd against a crusty corbel.


A most fabulous crusty foot from an old claw~foot tub.


Old linen towels on an apple ladder.


Millinery flowers in an old wire vase, nestled among my treasured transferware.


Butter pats... Enough said.


More millinery. More brown ironstone. Aaahhh.


A crusty white hook given to me by a long lost friend.


Could a bird lay eggs and a clock face? I wonder...


Stack of platters.


Is there anything more delicious than old French letters in a fab old frame?


Nature gives me treasures.


The imprint of sea~life on a white stone against an old mirror.


Old ghosting mirrors are like drugs to me...


The biggest, fattest, best corbel I've ever seen. And it's mine. Yum.

That long lost friend wouldn't go by the name Peter Pan would he and have a frenemy who's a captain?
You know I was a lurker of your blog long before I met you. Yours were always the most wonderful photos and I love that you stay true to yourself and your heart.

I am a huge fan of transferware, and I think brown transferware is really increasing in popularity. It looks so good with your neutral color palette.
