White Wednesday

Hi blogging friends, looks like I’m posting just once a week right now but that’s okay once school starts I’ll sure have more time on my hands…hopefully! This week dance camp started so I have to take them, then Michele picks them up, it’s a wonder I got this nightstand painted, I think it turned out really good and it only took 4 coats this time! I can’t wait to use the whole gallon up just to get rid of it. LOL
I kept the knob and just took a little bit of the paint off with some sandpaper.
Don’t you just love the lamp? I won two of them from Gina at Three Ring Cottage in June. I still have to get a different lampshade for it this one is natural instead of white but it does match the throw pillow that you see on the left and for now that’s okay. I love looking at this picture because my bedroom looks so nice but you should see the rest of the room a total mess…our annual yard sale is a week from this coming Friday so I’ve been going thur clothes in my closet and selling things that I haven’t used or worn in years!
Here is a close up of it! Love it, thanks again Gina!
So that’s another piece I painted two down and a million to go!!!
I thought you would like to see what was in our back yard the other day…a mama and her twin fawns, so cute, until Buster barked and they were scared off!

I know I said I’d show what I bought at Pottery Barn but just haven’t had time to take pictures but I promise I will soon! I did get to sit on a sofa of theirs and I’ll just say it was pure heaven♥
This is the second time I’ll be linking to Kathleen’s White Wednesday over at Faded Charm…it sure keeps me on my toes to at least get something done once a week!!! Stop over to see all the great posts about White Wednesday you will be so glad you did!

This was a lovely post. I am always fascinated when I see deer like that-how amazing that they are in your garden!

Best wishes,

Thank you so much for stopping by Elizabeth Ann's. I really do enjoy my creamers in my kitchen window. Unfortunately there isn't any more room so what will I do if I find another one??!!

I've also been trying to lighten up our house. It is amazing what just one piece of white furniture will do to a room.

Have a great week!

Thank you for stopping by my blog and commenting on my "top 21" list. I'm glad you enjoy my movie reviews, as I LOVE doing them.

Your lamp is beautiful. What a fabulous gift.

I see your next post down is about Kennywood. I grew up in the Pittsburgh area and went to Kennywood for years. LOVED The Thunderbolt and the Jackrabbit. My daughter was visiting friends in Pgh. earlier this summer, and they had hoped to make it to Kennywood, but it didn't work out. Maybe next year.

Blessings to you,

Hi Rondell,
I'm so glad you stopped by and left a nice comment. I am liking your little table very much and a glimpse of the deer makes me homesick for the mountains!

Thanks for visiting. Wow, what a great giveaway winning those lamps. I am a city girl so to see deer in someones yard is quite a treat! I only blog once a week and it seems to have worked out fine, don't put pressure on yourself.
