White Wednesday

I've been kind of lucky on this "White Wednesday" as it has found me kind of hanging around and working at home the past two days. It's been nice, and I will miss it as I head back to Country Roads for the next five days to work! I finally bought a new camera a couple of weeks ago and haven't had much time to really get to know it. My family room is filled with lots of memories of the past along with lots of my favorite stuff! So, I decided to introduce it to some of my favorite stuff!







I keep the hand written letter above inside of a glass case along with some other stuff that belonged to my folks and grandparents. For some reason I wanted to see if my camera would be able to take a clear picture of the letter, which was from my Dad during WWII to his folks. Then it got me thinking about how special that letter must have been to my Grandmother for her to have kept it all those years! Then in turn, my Dad had kept it for many years as well, After he passed away, myself being the "emotional hoarder", keeps ALL the family stuff!! Hope you all find the time to stop by and pay a visit to my buddy Kathleen over at Faded Charm. And happy "White Wednesday" and welcome Fall!!

Wow, you are so lucky, I wish I had some family memorabilia, unfortunately most of the stuff was sold off, when I was a so young. I didn't get a chance to say what I would have wanted, but I do have memories of being in my great grandparents and their cozy home. Happy WW

Loving all your "favorites" in white around your home. That letter is so cool and aren't you glad you are a hoarder....if not you might not have it today.

So glad you enjoyed your time off and don't work to hard.
