White Wednesday

I have been sick the last couple days. Had a fever that really put me into a do nothing mode. But, my boys were sick too--so this Mom had to do some things. After a lot of sleep I woke up without a fever and feeling so much better--I found myself wanting to do something fun. I always get inspired by going through my reading list and found that there is going to be no more White Wednesday parties. I was sad but I know someone will come up with a similar party. So in honor of the last party I went around and took a few pictures of white things I love.


I love my white ruffly valance. 

New white winter flowers on the front porch...



Gotta love a nice white seating area with a white picket fence and a white pumpkin sitting on white wicker!



One of the things I love about white is how clean and pure it is. It makes everything look pretty.


My white bedskirt turned tablecloth is my most popular post ever.


One of my favorite projects was making this cute little white fence for my dining area.
 
On another note..

 we are having a little problem with "teenage cats" lately. I love my animals but expect them to obey the rules of the house, just like the rest of us.

Meet the naughty bottle.


This is what we use to stop the dogs from barking at the neighbor dog, and now it is being used to keep the cats off the dining table and kitchen counter. A spray of water and they seem to get the message.

You can see the look of shame Fez has on his face (I just had to take a picture, even though the kitchen is a mess because my husband has today off)--he was actually drinking my iced tea! Teenage cat and caffeine--not good I am guessing! I tried to spray him right after I took the picture but he was already outta there. Hopefully the training won't take too long. Wish us luck.

Enjoy the last White Wednesday!

I was saddened to hear that Kathleen is shutting down White Wednesdays, too, Sandy. :( I'm going to miss all of the beautiful white decor ideas. I do hope that someone else picks up the idea!

Love your sweet home - and your chandy is gooorrrgeous, girl! Not to mention your darling furbabies.... :)

I am mourning the demise of White Wednesday as well. Thanks for sharing your whites. I especially love the white tablecloth, blue walls and candlesticks ... so clean and crisp.

Hi Sandy! Love all your ruffles! That spray bottle is a cat lover's best friend. It's almost magic. I've seen that kitty expression before!

No more White Wednesday! It was the first linky party I ever joined when I started blogging. So much fun. I'm so glad you came by for a look at my Shabby Chic post!

Hi my cute, sweet friend.
Am so sorry to hear you've been under the weather. I do hope you will be back to your wonderful self soon. I so love your white. I love everything you do Sandy and could move right in. And those cute pix of Fez. I feel like I'm just part of your home. Please take care. N.

PS I'm trying to get back in the blogging groove as I have been gone so much the last months. One of the biggest things I've missed are my blogging friends and you my dear are at the top of the list!!

Love this post! Well you know I love white... especially little white dogs. :) And your kitty is just absolutely precious. What a cutie pie.

I love the naughty bottle. That made me giggle.

And I adore the picket fence with glass bottles and flowers. That should be published somewhere!

Hugs and hope you'll be feeling better very soon.

Pam said...

I hadn't heard about the White Wednesdays going away. I didn't participate often, but liked to go over and see all the pretty pictures.

My mom wanted to spray our dog with a water bottle every time she had a accident on the carpet but we couldn't bring ourselves to do it.
