White Wednesday

I am really enjoying White Wednesdays and so I have a few photos to share with you.

old lace and old buttons

white ceramic baby boots

That is my husband's baby photo above

I found this hand embroidered tablecloth for $2.

It is edged with handmade lace and stitched on by hand.I can't imagine how long it would take me to make this tablecloth!

the same bouquet of white tulips.

can you see all the handiwork in it?

A close up of the pretty winter white dress I also bought for $2

I love smocked dresses.

I couldn't resist showing our granddaughter Jessie once again-it is White Wednesday after all! Join in the fun at Faded Charm for more whites.

Thank you for visiting,

I will check out White Wednesday. Your photos are just lovely. The pink-to-cream rose in your header is my absolute favorite rose. Those photos are just beautiful. We need new adjectives for your site. I have already worn them all out and your photos are to pretty for words!

Oh Carolyn, that tablecloth was such a find. Did you almost faint? I would have knocked people over to get to it. I can't imagine you doing anything like that though, so I'm sure no one else must have seen what a treasure it was.
I love your photography skills so much. Every picture is a piece of art.

Hi Carolyn,

Beautiful white pictures. In Holland everyting is 'white' again. A thin layer of snow has fallen overnight. I think that I will do the same as you and visit a thrift shop in Delft today. The tablecloth you found is lovely. I like the embroidery and the lace border. A very good find! I hope I will find something just as pretty today. Wish you a happy day!

Lieve groet,

I think I should go shopping with you! $2.00 each for that beautiful tablecloth and smocked dress?! Wonderful finds indeed.
I do adore your vignettes (and blog) always so feminine and calming to the soul. I love white on white with the palest of pinks or blues. Stunning.
Thank you for sharing.

Love the white photos you are showing today. Buttons reminds me of my grandmother who collected them in big old jars.

The Blue Jay you catched on camera is so beautiful. We don´t have them here.
