It's Been Fun...

Happy WHITE WEDNESDAY! As many of you may be finding by now, it's getting really hard to find new stuff to show you on Wednesdays. It's been really fun and I love the challenge, but for now I must say adieu to WHITE WEDNESDAY. I may pop back now and then. My schedule is about to get very hectic as it is 6 WEEKS FROM TODAY THAT WE LEAVE FOR TEXAS. And I have another show at RENNINGER'S in a week. Sooooo....

I'm leaving you with what I hope are interesting testiments to my love of chippy white stuff.

To KATHLEEN thanks so much for letting me be a part of this. You rock... Check out her blog HERE to see who else loves WHITE.


This is my all~time fav huge chippy white cupboard with original tin panels.





A hinge on a medicine cabinet.


The latch.


Corbels and a clock face.


Shells and a wasp nest in an old bulb pot.


Candle in an old light fixture. A fab corbel on my back porch.


Chippy drawers. Sounds like a personal problem doesn't it?


Atop a cupboard. A huge old store jar filled with dried hydrangeas. Rusty candlestick.


Chippy fragment.


Metal flower that was part of a candleholder for the garden.


Old sewer balls. Don't ask.


Candlesticks atop the mantle.



Hope you've enjoyed my installments for WHITE WEDNESDAY.

Hugs,

Shelley

Yeah, I'm finding it a challenge, too. I love Kathleen and I love White Wednesday's, so I'm hoping I have more time to get stuff lined up for them after Warrenton.

WARRENTON! I get to meet you there! I'll be arriving on the 22nd of March and will be there through April 4th. I'M SO FREAKIN' EXCITED!!!!

XO,
Anne

parting is such sweet sorrow...but I know you will have plenty more to share of this olde white, chippy, white, grungy, shabby white, rusty, rustic (did I say WHITE)goodness we love. So I'll be here to see what ever you post, cause I know I'll love it.
What a bunch of beautiful Whites today. I must go look again.

adieu,
Becky

Shelley this is such a bummer, but do I ever understand. I am cutting back a little myself as far as blogging goes, but I will miss your WW posts so much. I know that it will soon be your VERY busy time and I will just enjoy whatever you toss our way my friend. Dang... you two, I wish I could meet you both!

Oh, I'm going to miss you and all your wonderful whites. I understand and hope if you do have time once in a while you can still play along because I so love all your great photos. Thanks for supporting me and the WW theme. I appreciate it.

Have fun getting ready for Warrenton and I look forward to some great eye candy.

A great post! Isn't it funny what we love right now? Old beat up things with peeling paint. Wonder what people will think as they look back on our trends? I think I will love this shabby stuff forever though, it is just too sweet.
Thanks for the White Wednesday!
hugs,
Rhonda

Beautiful things! Such history, each piece with a story to tell (except I don't really want to know the sewer balls' story I don't think)

Hoping to meet you at Mt. Dora....

I live about 13 miles from all of the Round Top/Warrenton shows. My favorite times of the year are when all of you are out there.
Have already taken off work to be there for most of the shows.
We are thinking about renting one of the houses out here on the ranch if you know of anyone that might need a place to stay.
Good luck with your show and I hope to see you there
