It's Time for WHITE WEDNESDAY!

A big THANK YOU goes to Kathleen of ~ FADEDCHARM ~ for hosting weekly
WHITE WEDNESDAY!
This is my very first offering and I hope you enjoy it :-)
While looking around for something to showcase I realized that I have way more white
things than I ever realized and will be set for weeks to come :-)
Today I round up some of my collection of vintage 40's white planters with critter
shapings. I rarely use them for houseplants but they are rather filled with buttons,
lace, photos, postcards, etc.


There are chirping birdies, a pair of chickies, rabbits, lambs . . . and a couple of shabby
white chalkware frames. The little vintage white crochet heart pincushion has minty
green satin ribbons woven thru and looks right at home with the shabby
sweet cheepers :-)



Back to back bunnies . . .


Swans in all sizes and shapes are a classic 40's favorite . . .

I find these planters so appealing with their simple monotone cottage charm and
imagine they cared for many an ivy plant in their lifetime! And a chip
or 2 doesn't bother me a bit :-)

  1. HI Lynn, it is so nice to meet you. What a lovely blog you have started. Your handpainted china caught my eye...after your lovely white post. I am fortunate to have an entire set of handpainted pink rose china. My hubby's grandmother was one of those Sunday painters. Boy did she have roses down! I read your bio and was thrilled to see you are a cross stitcher and designer. I think that is wonderful. I love to cross stitch and no one in my family has picked up the habit but me! Oh well. But blogging is wonderful too, so glad to meet you and I just became one of your followers. Looking forward to visiting more!
    Blessings,
    Debbie
