White, Crashing....Denting...Excuses Wednesday

White and sparkly, some old jewelry and some new...

Hey everyone! I just had to show this marvelous picture below! Yes we live on a small farm in S. California....chickens, sheep, pigeons...used to have cows....always shooing away coyotes....hahaha here in S. California the coyotes eat very well and are on the plump side....If you clap your hands and yell, they run. Nothing to be scared of.
Anyhoo....the kids and I tease my hubby that he drives by the TOUCH system! Hahaha....He drives till he touches something! Kabong! It could be a barn, shed, fence, dog....unfortunately...they now run for the hills when he is driving...

I'm playing along with White...Wednesday...hence the white truck! Check out http://fadedcharmcottage.blogspot.com

for more wonderful white posts!

I love enamelware and found this at the thrift/consignment store and found it to be perfect to store Splenda in.

98% of the time Farm Living is wonderful! 2% of the time you just have to be tough and deal with rough situations...animal loss, crop loss, unfortunate situations. Mind you I'm a little squeamish when animals give birth and hubby wants me to help him....by touching something....that is a little...yucky....but I've learned to close my eyes and have a good attitude!

Big smile.

All your white things look so beautiful. I love that old quilt and that enamelware bowl. I laughed about the coyote. When we first moved here after growing up near the beach, I can remember laying in bed at night and hearing the coyotes howl. I thought we'd moved to the middle of nowhere. Of course, now it's the middle of suburbia, but 20 years ago it wasn't.

Oh I just love all that bling in the first photo. Leave it up to you to make me smile on a snowy morning in PA. Your white most is just so lovely and makes me think of romance.

WOW!!! You are one brave lady. I don't know if I could handle any kind of animal loss. Plus Im a tad squeamish too. Sounds like a good full life. I love the sparkly bling. Have a super WW!!!!!

We are in So. Cal too, San Clemente, and we see the coyotes all the time but we must admit: we are not as brave as you are! Great collection of whites!!

Julie said...

Loved your white post today, lol, even the dented white truck. It's good to laugh about such things in life. I love your verse, and I even love that little green birdie popping out in one photo. Thanks for sharing your farmlife days and whites.

fun white post today and I love the white truck :) I know about living in the country and the animal loss....and like you said 98% of the time it's great...the other part...not so great.

Grace @ Ruby Moon Designs said...

Love all the beautiful white...and do you know that I just bought that same sweet little green birdie that you have displayed on your shelf! I am a bird-lover...as you can tell!

Blessings, Grace

I love all your pictures! Hubby's truck is too funny!!! Plump coyotes huh...they must eat really well.

I would have the hardest time with animal loss on your farm. I would be bawling at each and every one. I'm such a softie for ANY animals.

Hope you are enjoying your day. We might get some snow tomorrow. It is supposed to stay South of Oklahoma City and be in Northern Texas so we should end up with some of it.♥
