White Wednesday " Inspiration"

I was blue since Sunday suffering from one of my terrible migraines, I missed out on the Irvine flea with Tara :( so I was looking for inspiration which I always find at Sassafras Stuff I love Polly she is full of charm...

I looked in the mirror and this inspired me to create


this new look for my "white" bookcase from Country Roads 

housing all of my goodwill glass

bottles and other treasures

just a simple mix

then off to my shed for some dried floral...

ok now don't faint the "urn filler" is all from my goodwill

don't you gals want to visit me in So Cal

last but not least stop by the "dollar store" for these precious

white journals with the bird sketches...

 bird chair I saw at wine country "Anthro"  store  you would faint

 if I told you the price

that is why it stayed at the store

Please stop by and visit Kathleen's White Wednesday you

will simply be in awe of the talent & beauty

much much love

simply me, xoxoxo Kate

Your shelf turned out wonderful. Beautiful displays and that chair is great. I'm sure it will be worth the price. Think of it this way, you save so much on everything else at Goodwill that you can afford to splurge once in a while. This usually works for me(haha)

Enjoy your Wednesday.

Kate, You are truly a sweetie!! And, yes, I think we all want to come visit you and go shopping at your Goodwill!! Your white shelf looks great filled with all your treasures. And, I love how you move things around and create beautiful new vignettes!

Ok, you must have an awesome Dollar Tree too!! I LOVE LOVE LOVE that bird journal! I'll stop by ours today and see if they're here.

Happy White Wednesday! We're up to about 8 inches of snow, so my Wednesday is white white white!!



Polly said...

Also, Kate, so sorry to hear you haven't been feeling great. I get migraines too, and it just stinks. I hate losing a day of my life due to a headache. I hope you are feeling better soon!

I get those nasty migraines too. I keep trying to figure out what triggers them....no luck.

Such a beautiful piece, that bookcase! You make simple objects simply stunning...Love that whole room. Great mix of lights and darks. :)

What a beautiful setting, Kate. The cabinet is just filled with freshness! Amazing that you can find all these goodies at goodwill, especailly those shower curtains from last post! Your home looks so comfortable and peaceful! I always love hearing from you.

Crystal said...

Oh Kate, I love your bookself and your Goodwill glass wares. We don't have a Goodwill that nice here. I definitely want to come to So. Cal and visit you.
First time to your blog and just love it.

Kate your WW posts are always so full of inspiration. I get so many wonderful idaes here. I love that urn filled with all that goodwill beauty. It's hard to believe the kind of things you find there in SC. Your uses for shower curtains are genius! I love your bookcase, full of wonderful 'stuff'.

Thank you so much Kate for the lovely words that you left at my place. It means so much to me.

Carole said...

Ok our goodwill has nothing that nice. Mostly overpriced ugly stuff. I guess I need to change addresses!
Love everything you did!

Tammy said...

Kate the white arrangement looks wonderful. You do have talent. Thanks for sharing and hope you aren't feeling so blue now.

Hi Kate ~ Love that White Cabinet with the GW Treasures..... & That URN! I will have to go to The Dollar Store Tomorrow, hope they have the same little books....

Lori said...

that all looks so pretty...you found some real treasures at your goodwill!!!

BellaRosa said...

Kate amor, as always your whites are just beautiful and I so agree we have the best thrift stores out here, so much so that I rarely go to flea markets anymore...even the swapmeets have the "old used stuff side" as one vendor called it, all I know is I love it there, just like a flea market with just a tiny fraction of the cost :) now amor...what Dollar Store are you shoppin at?? I want those bird journals :) Besos, Rose

ps...I love your white bookcase and all your thrift treasures! :)

Crystal said...

Hi Kate,
I really enjoyed visiting your blog. I am now a follower and adding you to my blogroll. Question? Is it better to add buttons or to blogroll.
Thanks for dropping by for a visit and your nice comments. I look forward to getting to know you better. It is so great to make new friends.
Have a blessed day.

Get to feeling better!
