White Wednesday!

This is our home during the summer, this summer it will be a little longer! We have added on to the end of the porch a large room (for my parents) that will have a small kitchenette and den area. I will post pictures soon...
I am decorating the whole thing for my parents
so all they have to do is move in...
My living room...with a few chippy white shutters surrounding a mirror.

A few more shutters outside....
Joining in today with this wonderful
blog party full of White goodness

A few more white things around my home...some sweet little bunnies that have snuck out of the garden.
Many of you share my love for white pitchers, small, medium or large!

This entire picture below is thrift store finds. Many things I find are in the wrong color but with a little spray paint they are all unified.

I'm so glad you came by for a visit! I wish sometimes we could all get together...tell funny stories, cheer each other on, have a bite to eat and go home happy! That would be a wonderful blog party to me!

I just love your home. I love the way you decorate it, and the style. I have triplets, their 4 & we are OUT of room. I close my eyes & your house is in my dream. Your family is darling too. Maybe there is room on the addition for 5 more?? Lisa

That would be a great party - no doubt about it! I love how you think ahead and can see something and then transform it. I have to really think about it before I make the change. I love the little tin boxes and the sweet nesting cups by your stove.

Enjoy your week!
