White Wednesday

"Happy White Wednesday" to everyone! I hope you are all doing well and enjoying getting away from every day life by participating in "White Wednesday". For this weeks post, I took some pictures of my favorite store, Country Roads! Not only do I love all the cool stuff we get, but I love the interior of the store as well. I LOVE looking at the facades of our individual dealer spaces. The interior has a great deal of old lumber, novelty siding, and architectural elements used to give it a look of days gone by. And I'm always attracted to the old white chippy stuff, especially old wood. Here's some of what's "in" the store and what's built "into" the store!







It's one thing to be surrounded by awesome antiques. But it is really great to work in a historic building that has been built out with old lumber and architectural elements from the past! I am grateful for the job I have! I hope you all make a point of going over to visit Kathleen. She has a great blog and a great list of other "WW" blogs to visit. Thanks for stopping by today, I appreciate your visit. Take care.

I love white chippy stuff too. Just looking at your pictures is happiness.
Today on the way to work I had to return home because I forgot to put my trash out, making me a little late.
Then in someone elses trash on my way to work was a fabulous blue/teal chippy window frame. About 5 or 6' long and maybe 12" tall. I'm still kicking myself for not stopping and getting it, even though I was running late!

What a wonderful place to shop, you'd be able to get a sense of how something would look in your home or it's other uses! LOVE IT!!! This was my first White Wednesday and I will definately be back! I'm in Heaven!

These were some of my favorite parts of the store. I loved all the built-in spaces and it added so much. I've never seen an Antique store as cool.

The first photo has me drooling. I want it all......

Take care Sue.
