A Little Hydrangea Love!

You know how it goes....

I was going to check out one little thing on the computer...well that one little thing became a bigger thing and now I'm posting for White Wednesday.

Today, I'm in the midst of a mess!

I'm pulling out everything and pricing it for the Monticello Garden Show, which opens April 8th.

I'm very easily side tracked as pricing is not one of my favorite things to do.

After work today I decided to stop by the store and see what kind of flowers were arriving for Spring.

I'm pretty confident Spring is on it's way it's just a matter of time before the weather shows it.

The first thing I spotted when I walked through the door was white Hydrangeas!

A must have!

I can't wait for them to come up in my own garden.

While out treasure hunting this week-end I came across this old torn album.

Even though it's shabby and worn it still it quite beautiful and is full of sweet old photos.

Well, I'm off to do some more pricing!

Thank you for stopping by!

Be sure to check out all the other wonderful blogs that are participating in White Wednesday.

Farm Fresh Eggs

I don't raise chickens but I sure do admire all the fabulous chicken coops I see out there.

I was fortunate today to have a friend share her beautiful chicken eggs with me.

I wish you could see how small they are and how really beautiful the colors are.

My photos do not do them justice.

There wasn't a white egg in the bunch.

It sounds silly but they're almost too pretty to eat!

Farmhouse Style

Because I'm not on top of the game, as far as taking photos, this week.

I thought I'd share with you some beautiful pictures from one of my favorite books, New Farmhouse Style.

I love this great old cabinet against the white walls.

And the urn with white Hyacinths.

Love the smell of Hyacinths!

Another favorite, old wicker baskets, love the contrast against the white....WONDERFUL!

Snowballs....love those!

I can't wait for my Snowball tree to bloom!

Then last...Peonies.

Another flower I'm looking forward to picking!

I'm joining Kathleen of Faded Charm for White Wednesday!

Thank you for stopping by and taking a look at these pictures from New Farmhouse Style!

Stashing Away!

Well, things are starting to accumulate around here.

Remember that clean dining room I had in a previous post....well, it's being filled up with treasures for the Garden Show at Monticello next month.

My storage room is full, I've borrowed space in my parent's garage...

so, any new furniture I happen to find from now until the beginning of April will land in the dining room!

You do what you gotta do!

Fortunately, this week-end found us hauling concrete pieces.

Well, fortunate for me that is, my #1 did some big time lifting!

The good thing about concrete is that it can be stored outside and still look great!

So if you're in the neighborhood on April 8th through May 30th be sure to stop by and enjoy the Monticello Garden Show.

Happy White Wednesday!

It's Hard Being Tough!

Some days Moms just need a little something to brighten up their day!

My #1 was there to do just that!

It's hard being a tough mom!

To all the moms out there that had to show tough love today....a BIG Hug from me to you!

A Full Week!

I have to admit there isn't any rhyme or reason to the photos I picked today.

Except for the fact that I'm joining in on White Wednesday
this week and thought desperately of what I could show you that you haven't possibly seen.

This is a 1944 wedding book.

A small,thin book full of pretty pictures and wedding information about William and Eleanor Berecz.

The other item I photographed is a vintage elementary school photo.

I have a couple of these but I have to say this is my favorite.

Don't you just love the little boy in the front row wearing the bow tie!

So darn cute!

Well, that was my little break from my daily business.

This week finds me at dress rehearsals every evening for my son's up coming play.

As well as working and trying to get in as much sewing as I can.

So I'm off!

Have a great day!

Be sure to drop by Kathleen's and see all the wonderful participants of White Wednesday.

la panier

Welcome to French Inspiration Thursday, hosted by Jill @ the French Cupboard.

I thought I'd show you an old French basket, most likely a purse, I found a few years back.

At the time I didn't realize it came from France.

But upon further inspection my #1 found that someone had written in the year as well as the country they hadgotten it from.

How cool is that?

I actually haven't figured out how I want to use it or display it but one of these days it will hit me.

So, for now I just enjoy the little bit of France I have at home.

Thank you for stopping by!
