Shabby Beds...

Well, the shop I had found and was going to post about, didn't work out so well. Lets just say, not much there,
so I'm talkin beds for this weeks White Wednesday...

I painted this bed (my bed) about 15 years ago. And I still love it today as I did when I painted it.
But I must confess, this paint job, it was purely by accident.

These are very old pictures, not one of these rooms looks like this anymore. All have been re-done and twice over. But I still love the looks.


Same room, differant beds...

Sweet dreams.
Joy of Flowers...

My one Rose, I had to snap a picture of it before it went away.
taken just a couple weeks ago.

On this hot and Sunny Autumn day, I want to share some flowers with you.



A Sunflower cocktail party...

I hope this day is filled with the Joy a Rose or a Sunflower can bring to you.

Autumn Welcome ...

Just a little White Wednesday welcoming of a new Season.
(I know it's only Tuesday)


I'll be out picking up some White Pumpkins and browsing a new Shabby Shop I found. I can't wait to share pictures of what I see next Wednesday.

Whether it be coated in the warm colors of Fall, or shabby white pumpkins and grapevine,
I hope you all have a wonderful
first day of Autumn.

A farewell to good ole Summer time...

with Fall on my Mind.
Sharing just a few of my favorite pic's of the Summer, some you've seen, and some new.
With White Wednesday in mind, all bring the warmth of Summer time.

There's a Little Witch in all of Us...

Like Mizz. Prudence Pickford.
The new Witchy-poo I finished today.
Charming? Perhaps.
Stylish... No doubt
Wicked? Indeed!
But Sweet as can be... or is she?

~I'll never tell~

A Tour at Portobello Road...

An amazing Shop in my little hometown
(I may have mentioned it before)
where I find many of my treasures,
sell my Handmade Creations
and on occasion I get to play Decorator too.
Owned and operated by my dear friend Jackie.

The perfect place for a White Wednesday Tour.


the garden, and back porch... sit a spell. I soooo want this...
vintage accents,

Wouldn't this make a wonderful headboard? My favorite room, the WHITE room. Calming,

Peaceful, Elegant,

It has been such a joy shopping at

Portobello Road with you all...

but more to see.

Never out of Style...

I only have this to share this week.
But it is Fabulous, ripped from an old "HOME" magazine article I saved from so very long ago.
It's how I feel about decorating with White.
I saved it for so many years and it hangs in my studio always.
And is so true, we can never get enough White in our homes, to give us the Calming feeling it brings.
Do take a tour of more wonderful Whites...
