White Wednesday Gone OverBoard

Ahoy there and welcome to White Wednesday. For those of us who are mired in white snow and ice but who are dreaming of fun filled warm summer days, here's a little tease. These old life preserver rings are hard to come by and coveted for beach cottage and lakeside decor. I was extremely lucky to find this one. I love the chippy old white paint on it and underneath that, in spots, is aqua.....(scream!). I just listed in the boutique this week. The fabulous little shop where I found this one has just opened up out here in my county and I have my name on the list for a spot there. I already have visions of how I want to decorate it. (think cottage fabric birds and white branches and a great big nest and giant paper flowers) Bobby G. says I am a glutton for punishment wanting to tackle even more when my plate is already so full (and he is probably right :) *** For a long list of all of us who love white just click here. Kathleen of Faded*Charm host this fun day. ( I know I am early with my Wednesday post but it's Wednesday somewhere...right? :)

Oh Lynn sweetie...
How beautiful this is. I can see this from years gone by, hanging on the side of a boat house, just in case of an emergency that might arise at the dock. We walked many a dock that they were visible. Isn't it funny the things that we want to gather today and keep forever, are the things that we have etched so tightly in our memories. If I could I would still be sitting on that dock with my old cane pole, bobber and a little can of night crawlers. Yes, those were the best memories. No shoes, feet dangling in the water.

Lynn thank you for the memories. Oh my have I ever pulled from my book today. I thank you for that.

Country hugs sweetie and so much love, Sherry
