White Wednesday

I tried this post 2 weeks ago and blogger was being mean to me, so I deleted it. If you saw it then, I apologize. I just hate to waste a good White Wednesday!
I just can't resist pearls or rosaries, I don't pack them away. I show them off! The cross you see is a funny old ivory rosary that belonged to my Grandmother, a devote Catholic.
If diamonds are white so are rhinestones, right? I found the monogrammed pin 'sam' not long ago at an antique mall. They are my Mother in law's initials, I can't wait to turn it into something special for her.

I collect these pearl buckles.
Baby shoes are one of my absolute favorites, I'll buy them in any condition.
These were actually mine when I was little.
This is part of a pretty dress that was moth eaten. Oh well, it gave me an excuse to cut it up for various projects.
I found this old stained child's dress at a garage sale for $1, again it will go into a collage of some sort.
This sweet dress came from the same garage sale, I love the eyelet.

I am not a collector of wedding dresses, just beautiful lace, and this one was covered in it. The waist is teeny tiny, maybe a size 0. It can't even fit on my mannequin so I just have it hung over my dressing table.
Here is a close up of the bodice.
I do collect vintage undergarments, especially slips. I love how women took such care in how they dressed, from the slip to gloves and hats. I have quite a few bed clothes as well, little bed jackets are my favorite. I wear one of my hubby's t-shirts, sad I know.

That's it for this White Wednesday, be sure to check out Kathleen over at Faded Charm for the list of other participants.

Wonderful post!I love all your whites! How cool to have your grandmothers cross. And that SAM pin is wonderful. Wonder what it meant to the original owner. Initials? Don't you love to dream up stories. Hope you get to go on your "date" to Hico. Enjoy! Talk to ya soon!
