First, may I say that blogger is being a butt today? Anyone else agree????Happy White Wednesday my friends:)

Hope your 4th of July was a fun, safe one. We spent the day at my son's and his girlfriend's lake. Lots of fun people, great food and spectacular fireworks over the water. Fun, fun, fun!

I have been looking for a round table for in front of this sofa but when I saw this table I changed my mind. It was too tall so Don cut the legs down for me. (He is the best) I cleaned it and added an old glass knob.It is almost the same size as the trunk that was there before but with the legs on this table it makes the space look roomier.

LOVE these flowers from Maynards Greenhouse.

I was told that this is an old baby crib boxspring. I took it home, painted it white and now it is hung on our door holding vintage photos.
This cage is one of my favorites.  So is the plant. It is a sea onion and grows curly and vining.

Phlox and another pretty white annual.

Remember this free chair?  EEEEEWWWWWWWW

Look at it now:) I found this great nubby fabric and use some tattered lace from an old tablecloth at the bottom.
I hope you have enjoyed my whites for today. I will be over to check out yours as well. And don't forget Kathleen from Faded*Charm who host White Wednesday. She always has the best whites and so do the many who join in every week.

'Till next time...
