White Wednesday!
Oh goody! It's White Wednesday! I haven't participated in a long time and I've missed it! I promised to show you all the rest of what I found on my Mother's Day antiquing jaunt and some of it just happens to be white!
I have been searching for white suitcases for years and I've actually found several, but never wanted to pay $30 or more each. Since I wanted at least 3 so I could stack them, that would really add up fast. So I was very happy to find these small size ones for less than the price of one big one and they fit nicely on top of tables for a lift! Also, the little men in my life are more likely to leave them alone if they are high instead of stacked on the floor. I also found the photo of the lady, the pretty piece of crochet lace, an old bottle that I'm exited to embellish with lace and rhinestones and the faux fur collar, which I really only bought for the rhinestone clasps on it!Now I'm off to visit the other White Wednesday participants. Thank you to Kathleen of Faded Charm for hosting this fun weekly event!Michelle xoxo

Take care and enjoy your Wednesday!

Your Venetian mirror looks so pretty draped with the lace - all those little touches make such a difference, don't they?

Hi Michelle,
You have some lovely whites! Love your little white suitcases! I brought up three little guys myself and enjoyed it so much! I miss those days. Children are gifts that keep on giving and today I have four more little guys and a new one on the way. I don't know whether it's a boy or a girl. Thanks for sharing and have a wonderful day. Stop by sometime; would love to have a visit from you.

Blessings,
Sandi
