White Wednesday

Another White Wednesday is here!  My favorite day of the week!  And my most busy day of the week!  Usually it gets here & I scramble to get my post up & ready...where does the time go?

This past Sunday night my husband & I took a mini-getway to Door County!  We had a wonderful time!  The major thing we wanted to accomplish was to visit one of my favorite antique malls.  I hadn't been there in several years because we usually visit Door County on the off-season to avoid the crowds...and my shop is closed!  UGH!  But this time, 
WE MADE IT!  
Hooray!!!

I almost didn't notice this jar of goodies sitting high upon a shelf...


looking like it had been long forgotten.


There wasn't a whole lot inside...


but enough to make my heart start racing when I spied it!


I think my husband thought I was crazy for getting so excited about 
a few scraps and some spools of thread!
But it was so worth it!


Not just for the treasures inside, but mostly for the
scent that took me back to Gramma's farm house in Ohio!  
I just kept sticking my nose inside
& deeply breathing it in!

My daughter came home for Mother's Day and brought her favorite White with her...

Meet MAXIMUS!

Max is a 3-month-old Husky/Sheepdog mix and full of energy! 
I was able to get him to slow down long enough to snap a couple good pictures.
Isn't he a cutie!


He's going to be a handful!  
And HUGE!!!
 But for a pup he was surprisingly well behaved!

Be sure to head over to Faded Charm to see all the other White Wednesday pretties!
And may your day be Wonderfully White!

                      Warmly,
                              Lori

Lucky Girl! You found real treasures inside that jar. I love Door County! We were in Wisconsin last fall and went up to spend a long weekend with friends who live there. Went to some of the antique shops, spent a little money and then went to an outdoor concert. By the end of the weekend, we were looking for a summer cottage!
(No, we didn't purchase one.) Hope we get to visit again soon.

Your daughter's doglet has a real sweet face. Thanks for sharing.
