MY FIRST WHITE WEDNESDAY! YEAH!






I have had so much fun with Pink Saturday, I have decided to join the White Wednesday group hosted by Kathleen at http://fadedcharmcottage.blogspot.com/. It looks like a lot of fun with some very talented ladies.

I have spent the day beginning to put away the Christmas decorations. What took me almost 2 months to set up,will only take 2 or 3 days to store. It is sad to see it go, however, I look forward to January and what the year 2010 has to offer. This year was one of the hardest year's in my life, however, it has brought so many beautiful blessings as well. God commands us to think on the things that are perfect, pure and lovely and of good report. So as I begin to say good-bye to the year, I want to thank God for my family that I adore and the friends I have and those I have made through this blog. You have changed my life for ever for the better.

You expect to be loved and supported by your family and close friends, I never expected you! I can truly count my blessings and name you one by one!

I have included a a couple of faded white pictures in honor of Wednesday. Since I plan to decorate my home in white for the month of January, you will see more next week. Still have not decided what my give-way will be. I am looking for something special for special ladies!

Have a great year end! Blessings, Martha

Hi, it is so nice to meet you! I stopped by yesterday and spent most of the morning reading your past posts. I enjoyed my visit so much! I love your white wednesday and am looking forward to many more in the New Year!

I'm not too fond of the putting away part! Ick! But I am fond of your beautiful first photo with the rhinestones! So cool! Happy New Year!

Claudia said...

Hi Martha! I will be putting everything away on January 2. It is hard to see it all stored away, isn't it? I hope you are well and having a wonderful holiday week.

Hi Martha, welcome to White Wednesday - this is my first WW, too. I love your gorgeous vintage rhinestone pieces. I'm feelin' the need to get things taken down and put away, too. I pray 2010 is a wonderful year for you :)

I know I need to get started putting my decor away but I hate to take it all down. Happy White Wednesday.

Hi Martha! I think you could do a color a day and still have more to show us. :) I am slowly putting away Christmas decorations too. I think I will leave the big tree up for a bit longer as I like seeing the lights each evening. Look forward to seeing more whites from you. I always post a White Wednesday, just like I do Pink Saturday, but the procrastinator in me will not allow me to join any of the groups. Wishing you many wonderful blessings, Tammy

What a beautiful White Wednesday post--so glad you joined in the fun.

It is a lot of work setting up and taking down the Christmas decorations, but I like to take my time and think of the memories associated with each ornament.

We don't take ours down until Jan 7th.


Have a safe and happy 2010.

Hugs,

Fiona

Martha,
What a lovely blog you have, I have enjoyed my visit with your family and collections. We must be kindred spirits as I too am a collector and think there is nothing in this world more precious than a grandchild. I am into making all kinds of crafts and thankfully I have a wonderful husband who supports me in all I do. Bonnie

Cora said...

Love the jewels...they are beautiful!
All beautiful white things.

Happy holidays for this new year which is upon us!

Sares said...

I love the white. It's so crisp and white. I've been toying with the idea of changing my blog to creams and whites for a bit but I'm so indecisive it's pathetic. I finally got all the inside decorations down and put away. My cold is feeling better today thank goodness. I look forward to your next White Wednesday, until then, I hope you're feeling better!

Denise said...

Hi Martha! Thank you, once again, for stopping by and leaving such a sweet comment. I wish I could put away my Christmas decorations as quickly! It seems to be taking me FOREVER!

Jenny said...

Hi Martha! Just wanted to stop by and wish you and your family a Happy New Year! I've enjoyed your blog so much and I really appreciate your visits to mine! Looking forward to sharing more in the coming year!
