Baseball, Apple Pie & White Wednesday


Well, maybe not apple pie, although that does sound pretty good!

I thought since it's White Wednesday I'd show you my favorite find this week-end.

Baseballs!

I was able to find quite a few of them at one sale.


I just love the look of these all gathered up in a terrarium.

If these could talk I'm sure they'd tell fascinating stories!


I had every intention of selling these old balls but as soon as I displayed them I fell in love!


I wanted to thank all of you who participated in my giveaway last week.

I do have a winner it's Carol from Old Glory Cottage.

Thank you Carol, you will be receiving an email from me shortly!

And lastly a special thank you to Kathleen of Faded Charm for hosting White Wednesday!

How funny that White Minds think alike. I too found a crate full of baseballs at a sale last week and could not pass them up. I filled up a huge white bowl to display on my coffee table.

The baseballs look fabulous displayed in the terrarium. I love all the different shades of white and the different levels of grunginess on the balls. It looks beautiful.

Hi Debbie,

I love the baseballs in your display! How American can you get? ;-)

I still have the very first baseball my father gave me when I was only 7 years old, and I also have the one I lost to our Great Dane. She chewed a bit off of it to expose it's inside a a bit. I never thought of displaying them in such a way. Thank you for the great idea and the great photos!

Happy White Wednesday!
