White Wednesday " this is why"

This is why I fell in love with Kathleen's White Wednesday Post week after week, image after image I am completely taken by all those who share...




these were made for the "clipping exchange" my neighbors love when I share my succulent clippings so I put them in these "dollar store tin pails"...

I can't wait to see what clippings I will bring home!!!








my favorite idea project yet two black rubber door mats that I spray painted white & sanded by hand then hung them on the wall for an inexpensive piece of art.  I grabbed these rubber door mats at the dollar store.





dollar tree bird projects!!!




the 5.99 goodwill urn that I heart...






Happy White Wednesday!!!!

simply me Kate xoxoxo

You are so creative that you make the things you buy look so high end:)Having a 'clipping exchange' is such a great idea. I went house plant shopping on Monday and you would not believe how many plants I put in my little sports car. There was no room for my mail. LOL I am going back next week because the prices are awesome and I just love plants:)

Kate your decor on a budget is so amazingly inspiring! What an eye for style you have. I always love my visits here and can never get enough.

Neat stuff.

People always find way better things at Goodwill than I do. Actually I find great things, but the prices are usually too ridiculous and far from a bargain. Once in a great while I score.

I like your idea of the "clipping exchange". I've given many starts and clippings to my family and neighbors over the years. It would be a great party idea.

OMG I love the doormat idea. The ac return is blantanly on my dining room wall down low. To me thats all I see in there. I have been looking for something with a lot of openings that would let the air flow. That might work. Another project, thanks...julie
