White Wednesday~Kitchen Whites

I'm linking up with Kathleen's White Wednesday today....
These are the tops of our cabinets in the kitchen~
A chippy old column....
I had two like this, but sold one~
wish I had it back, this one seems so lonely

A cluttered window ...
look at the redbud beginning to blossom....

More old white stuff
or junk for the most part

and lastly,
a few pieces of old stray ironstone~

Wishing you all a wonderful, blessed week~ Ann

Merry Christmas~

When we give each other Christmas gifts in His name, let us remember that He has
given us the sun and the moon and the stars, and the earth with its forest and mountains
and oceans and all that lives and moves upon them. He has given us all green things and
everything that blossoms and bears fruit and all that we quarrel about and all that we have misused and to save us from our own foolishness,from all our sins, He came down to earth
and gave us himself. ~Sigrid Unset

Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas, God Bless~ Ann

Thank You, Thank You,Thank you!!!

How lucky am I to have two super-stars come to our little Open House??? Lisa and Dawn drove way out here to Melrose to be at our Open House...These girls must be two of the sweetest people God ever put souls in~ I have to admit, I was a little nervous at first, I mean...they are soooo talented and I've loved their art and blogs forever!!! But.. all that nervousness vanished in about two seconds~
We went out to dinner.... afterwards, they came to our home and the shop. You can see more pictures on both of their blogs ..... and next post, I'll show you the sweet gifts they brought're gonna love them~

Thank you Lisa and Dawn so much for making this time so special..
..Aren't they beautiful???

We had a really good turn out and sold a lot of things...the weather was gorgeous....
Thank you to each of you that came out
I hope you found something that "spoke" to you
~or something that will haunt you, so you'll come back.....

Linda, Earline,Marion, mom & dad, Zandra and sweet Paula.... I could not have done this without all of you.... Thank you all so much!


And most of all...
I want to thank my sweet David for putting up with all this, for all your help, eating sandwiches for days on end, having art supplies all over the place, listening to me complain and say I'll never do this again (knowing I will) but most of all, for being my biggest supporter and encourager. I love you (like crazy)

Enjoy Life~ Ann
