White Wednesday


The picture above is one of my very favorite country primitive pieces I have in my home. It came out of a general store, and it is not only great for holding and displaying all my "stuff", but practical as well. The big grain bins on the bottom are perfect for all my grandkids toys. Makes for great toy storage as well as holding some "stuff" that I'm pretty fond of! 











That old black clock above that is sitting on top of the red ammunition box sort of pulls at my heart every once in awhile. That old clock sat on my folks mantel my entire life, and stayed there until they moved into assisted living before passing away. My Dad would always take the time to wind the clock each and every day without fail. Obviously I don't wind the clock anymore, but every once in awhile, I glance at it, and I picture my Dad at different points in my life standing by the fireplace winding his clock! So, on this "White Wednesday" I hope it finds you all well and still clinging on to a memory or two from your past like I do. It's good for the heart! Please stop by and pay my friend Kathleen a visit over at Faded Charm! She not only has her own great "whites" featured, but a whole list of other wonderful blogs to visit.  I hope you all have a wonderful Labor Day week-end! I know mine will be crazy while working at Country Roads during the annual "Orange International Street Faire"! I can hardly wait for the good times to arrive!! But hey, you can't beat the people watching!!

I really love that piece, the grain bins would be perfect for all the kids toys, it's fabulous!!
And what a beautiful memory of your Father winding his clock over the years, I know that must be a really special piece to you!
I was in the store today and it's looking amazing, especially Debbie and Kate's spot, simply to die for!! I could spend all day in there!
Have wonderful night.
Sincerely,
Melinda

I always say you have the best collection ever!
What is most awesome about your collection is that it has meaning.
What a great memory to hold on to.
Boy times(no pun intended) have changed. Can you imagine people today having to remember to wind their clocks. Everyone would be late everyday, lol
Wish you a great and safe weekend
Hope you have time to catch a little of the people watching in photos, I can only imagine

Hi Sue,
Love the chippy white furniture piece. Love the collection of frogs. How nice to have your parents clock and be able to have wonderful memories associated with it. Good luck with the Street Fair! Can't wait to hear the stories. Blessings to you and your Country Roads family.
