White Wednesday And A Little Memory Loss

I'm joining a party for the first time today. It's White Wednesday over at Faded Charm and I guess I never joined before because I didn't think I had alot of white in my home. But with the recent remodel of my master bedroom and sitting room, I've acquired some pretties in white that I think are worth sharing with you.

This lovely ironstone pitcher is perched on a white stand I borrowed/stole from my daughter's room (don't worry, I don't even think she noticed!).

These are just some old frames I got at yardsales/Goodwill that I sprayed the ever-famous Heirloom White and added to the same stand.

I love this ceramic cherub compote the best. I purchased it last weekend for a quarter at a yardsale and it was an ugly gold. I gave it the same spray treatment and VOILA!

Bear with me a moment, I'm having a brain cramp and can't think of the name of this thingie. Oh heck, I'll just call it a thingie. The right word will come to me in a few minutes and I'll change "thingie" to the right word, but for now, it's just "thingie". (Gosh darnit, I hate it when this happens to me and it's been happening ALOT lately!) How can I blog with such a horrible memory? Where was I? Oh, right, the thingie. I trashpicked thingie recently and you guessed it, sprayed it. WAIT!!!!!!!!!! I just realized something! Too much spraypainting has been affecting my memory! Note to self, wear a mask.
Added a few books and a birdie, cuz, why not?

Moving on. Another thingie, only this one really is a thingie, unlike the last thingie that really has a name. I bought this at the auction for $5 and my original intent was to add a round glass top to it and use it as a table, but I really didn't have a spot for that, so instead, I'm using it as a place to store my old issues of BHG. And even better, I didn't have to spray this one - it was already white.

Lastly, a snap of an old nightstand I also got at the auction for $5. It was old and dingie, so I painted it white and gave it some new/old crystal knobs I got at a yardsale for a buck. I love the French Provincial look of it.

Now, while I go to the drugstore to buy some Ginkoba, you go over and check out the other whites at Faded Charm. And would you please remind me once in a while to take my Ginkoba, cuz I'll forget.

UPDATE!!!!! Several minutes later...........DUH!!! PEDESTAL!!! It's a pedestal! Thingie is a pedestal! i knew it would come to me

Lee Laurie said...

Wow! I love all of your white thingys! Especially the end table! I really love that! I got to looking around after looking at this post and realized how much white that I have. Maybe I can 'remember' to do a post about it! LOl

Glenda/MidSouth said...

Oh how I can relate. I hate getting in mid sentence and can't think of the word I want to say. :) Like it all, but really like your night stand.

Mid-Atlantic Martha said...

All you white is lovely! (and I do that memory thingy too!)

Nancy said...

I love all your whites, but I'm crushing on that little end table in a major way.
Pop over to see me if you get a chance :o)

Hi Kim,

You sure are pumping the fun into White Wednesday!! You have a lot of nice whites and how nice that you created most of it. I love all of it. Your daughters stand is perfeect and I like the frames a lot. The nighstand was a steal!! Heirloom White...who makes that?? I have been using cheap stuff and I usually have to do 3 coats that come out awful (I am new to spray paint, I used to use the old fashioned brush!).

Your thingies are: 1) A column, pillar or pedestal (whichever works best with your type of mind) 2) An urn

I make a point to know these things for impressing people when I blog! lol!!

You have a fun blog and I am glad I came. Enjoy your week! :-)


Carolyn said...

Love all your whites especially the night table!

Mary said...

I have to reread your post, because I was laughing too hard to get through the whole thing! Glad you remembered what the "thingie" was...LOL!!! Loved it, and so glad you joined in! Your whites are wonderful!!!

Sharon said...

Love your whites ... is there anything like a can of white spray paint???

Queenie said...

Oh are hilarious! Love all of your whites and great finds! You are such fun! Oh I wonder what trouble we could get into together at the yard sales! Lots I'm sure!
Big Hugs,
P.S. How's the makings of your shop coming along?!

Karen/Elsie Eleanor Designs said...

$5 for that nightstand??!! I love it! It's awesome!! I have got to get to some yard sales!
Oh, and the memory thing...that's cracking me up! I can so relate to that. Have you ever dialed someones phone number and while the phone is ringing and you are waiting for them to answer you forget who you called? I just did that last week. Oh well, you'll have that.
One more thing...I like your playlist!

Traci @ Beneath My Heart said...

Just wanted to come by and thank you for the sweet comment you left on my blog. I am glad you enjoyed the posts about my mom. It helps so much to know that she is still touching people's lives here on earth. She left us too quickly, and she had so much more to give. But I know that God's timing is perfect and he took her for a reason. I hope to honor her and most importantly HIM through my blog.
God bless you bunches!

Melissa Miller said...

Kim you are so cute!
Pedastal. LOL!

All of your whites are gorgeous! The frames turned out beautiful.

Thanks for your sweet visits my friend. It's always nice to see a comment from you.

Many Blessings and Happy Fall!
~Melissa :)

Carrie @ Cottage Cozy said...

Your "whites" are wonderful! I haven't joined a "party" yet either. Maybe I will have to give it a try!

Stay Cozy, Carrie
