Finishing Projects!

Is there anything more special than your son coming in, after mowing the lawn, with a rose in his hand giving it to his mom?

A perfect picture for my White Wednesday post.

What would have made it more perfect is if it would have been my rose bush and not the neighbors!

.....Just teasing! It was my rose bush!

This morning I woke up to a mess!

Our month was up in the window at Monticello so what I couldn't get in my booth came home with me.

In addition to that were the things I had bought this week-end.

(pretty vintage potholders)

One of the things I did was to make a liner for an unusual old cart I had picked up last week-end.

It's a fun cart as the basket comes off.

I needed to get it done as I also bought a box full of old fraternity pledge paddles that I needed to get marked and taken to the shop.

It worked perfectly filled with the old paddles!

Two more things out of the house!


That's always a good thing!

If you are fortunate enough to go to Farm Chicks this week-end my good friend Sue has made some wonderful liners for her carts.

Perfect for holding all your treasures while shopping!

A BIG thank you to Kathleen of Faded Charm for hosting White Wednesday.

Have a great evening!

How sweet of your son and it was white which is also a bonus. Love your cart and liner. I need to learn how to sew these liners as I keep finding baskets that need them.

Take care,

Love your little basket! I think we need a tutorial please, I saw a similar basket in the thrift store but was too intimidated to figure out the lining...

I love that cart! And your son bringing you a rose reminds me of the time that I brought home a big bouquet of tulips for my mother, and they were from the neighbor's garden! I had to go and apologize, and it was horrible!
It's my first White Wednesday, so I'm very happy to meet you!
Happy WW!
