To Faded Charm ~ with love from Heaven's Walk

Happy White Wednesday, my friends!

I'm keeping it sweet and simple today.

Yup. No blabbering on about my life or how hubby can really irk me get my goat sometimes or how my diet isn't going well because my body and my fat are really good friends now or why my mind not only wanders - it just sometimes leaves me completely...

Nope.  None of that.

Just some pretties from my home as I wandered around with my camera. 

(It must'ave been one of those times my mind was wandering too...) 

Hubby, of course, gave me 'the look' out of the corner of his eye like "she's got nothing better to do....?"
(Hey, just leave this mindless beach-chic to her wandering, ok?  
She's got blogging to do!)

Ok.  See?  Here I am blabbering on like I said I wouldn't do.

So, in honor of White Wednesday with Kathleen at Faded Charm
enjoy the pure joy of pure white.

My 'simply summer' kitchen shelves...

My first French body pitcher I ever owned...from a new friend in France.

My summer fireplace mantel...

My yet-to-be-read Jeanne d'Arc magazine...

 Yeah, I know...I know.  You're all just thinking "How in the world can she not open it up? I'd have that beauty devoured by this time!"
I'm just dyin' to sink into those pages and get to know Jeanne
....but just have not found the time yet!

(Possibly due to more mindless wandering....or me wandering around looking for my mind....?)

But I promise...I will...I will!

And last but certainly not least, the second French body pitcher in my new obsession, 
...umm...collection (eBay treasure).

Seriously...can a gal have too many of these....?
I think not.

(I'm still pining away for one made of zinc, though...)

She, too, is from France and was mailed with a sweet note from Anne.

Blessings to you all on a beautiful White Wednesday!

  1. Hi Laurie, I love all things French, so I adore your French pitchers! And your coffee table is gorgeous! Is it made from a window or door? Love it!

    I am as entranced as always, my friend. I sure hope I don't spill any coffee on those white slipcovers when I visit!>)
    Love, love, love your pitchers & they are perfect in your setting(s). All husbands think we are crazy when we start taking pictures for BLOGGING! lol

Hugs to you-I am off to work now...d-r-a-g...but I expect the hospital is hopping so I won't be dragging long. Today is a day I need to keep busy anyway. Diana

  3. Good morning sweet sister of mine...sigh...I just love all the pics of your "white" home.I'm sitting in our now famous moronic state just looking at tranquil and beautiful.
    Another pitcher, huh? LOL What did Rog say about that?!
    Hugs to you.
