Happy 2010     WhiteWednesday.

This is my very fragile hoosier. I would love to move it but if I do, it will be the last time. So I will have to enjoy it in this spot until I can't take it any more:)

My son and his girlfriend Marci gave me two gorgeous pieces of pottery for Christmas.  This is one of them.  It looks so pretty with white flowers in it.

I have a collection of alarm clocks.  First I collected all white but then I found  some that were were very ornate and so pretty so I added them to the collection.

Some vintage dresses in my granddaughter's guest bedroom. Their room is decorated with vintage toys and furniture.

This old hutch top just spoke to me at Brimfield Flea Market.  The paper on the windows is original and so worn but I love the look so it will stay.  I don't think it would have the charm it does with out it.

I also have a collection of strainers - all sizes.  Do you ever wonder why we collect the things we collect?

This isn't white but it is another collection of mine, wire potato mashers. I love the different styles.  They are in an old tool box that I painted.  That is an old stained glass window behind it in the window.  I have about 10 more in my windows.  I love how the sun brings the colors into the house.

Thank you to Kathleen for White Wednesday.  Check out her blog 'Faded Charm' for more white fun!!!

'Till next time.....

Check back tomorrow for "Maison Couture"!

  6. Dear Debra,
    thanks for your visit to my fashion for women 60++ :-)
    I am sorry but I don't design the cloths I only see with my "fashion" eyes what will suit me.
    You are so nice thinking I made them myself.
    I like your home and your collections very much. Especially the alarm clocks.
