Special White Wednesday

It's a celebration!

Faded Charm
100th Post!

Come and join us in the White Wednesday fun with Kathleen from Faded Charm.

I didn't always have white in my home, seriously, I once had a different color in each room. 
But, I think I always, in the back of my mind knew it was the color I was most drawn to and wanted around me.

Due to rain, this past weekend I spent my days inside, painting with my new chalk paint and sewing new slipcovers.  I had a very productive weekend.  Not that I don't want the rain to stop one of these days, but I used my time indoors very productively.

New cushions for my outdoor seating. 
  I made these with an envelope closure on the back for easy washing, no need to pay for expensive Sunbrella fabric when cheap cotton duck will do.
My favorites are the cushions with the ruffles,
love me some ruffles.

The rain has also done wonders in my gardens. 
Happy flowers in bloom.
Yeah spring!

The birds have filled all the white houses.

This frame has already been given the WHITE treatment and is now just waiting for a chalkboard insert.

These rainy days also gave me time to do some shopping.  I was lucky enough to find a set of 4 chair cushions at TJMax my favorite lunch time shopping store.  I think they look great with my vintage wooden folding chairs.  Perfect for extra party seating.

White Wednesday was the first link party I ever joined, and even though I can't always join in each week, I always stop by to visit.  Seeing all these other bloggers who decorate, appreciate and dare I say LOVE white too, made me feel more normal.  Thank you Kathleen for giving us this great Link Party.

Thanks for stopping by, and don't forget to let a little white in your life.
