White Wednesday & A Hint



Another week goes by, and at least here in the lone star state it is starting to feel like Autumn. The cool weather always motivates me to nest. The kids are in school and I have the time now to pull out the pine cones & other decorations that have been roasting in the attic for months. As I wondered through the house taking a mental inventory I snapped these pictures to share.






I love this little collection of bud vases. I bought them in San Antonio at an estate sale for about
$20






Wonderful Alabaster lamps from a charity shop for $3o on 1/2 price day. I think my throat went dry.





Mirrors, my house has lots, and they all have alligator skin paint.






Sections of the most brilliant chippy paint garden trim, I bought it at a garage sale for $2, don't know what I'll do with it but I love it.


I also I added a clue to my banner giveaway. Remember, you have until Thursday to comment on my blog.




See you next week!

The change of seasons and nesting always make us look at our homes in a different way, doesn't it? You sure captured some great whites!
