Hello Ladies: Hope you are having a good week. I have been very busy doing Martha things. Things like pruning the roses, working on my craft room today (pictures will follow soon) and starting to redo my guess room, taxes, laundry, Noah, Ebay, helping my son with this year's college classes. I get tried just thinking about what I have been up to. The best part of today was a visit with my mother. We went to the thrift store together and did some grocery shopping. The two pieces of jewelry were today's finds. Most important Mom and I were together, something we both love.

I still have not gotten to the sewing of the curtains, I know my daughter will start complaining soon, so I better get it together. Like I said, I tend to bounce around a lot. Pray that I get focused would you?

This post celebrates White Wednesday! So here are a few pictures of the white in my house right now. I love the clean feeling it gives. If I wasn't so crazy, I would keep white up all year long. Alas, I know that is impossible for me. February is just around the corner and pinks and reds are calling my name!

Thank you ladies for all your support and your kind words. As you know I am having a give away for my one year anniversary. To celebrate, I have planned this give away, that will end January 31, 2010. Since I am a book-a-holic, what would be better than another book? Rachel Ashwell is my favorite designer. This book, The Gift of Giving, I believe is her best! All you have to do is leave a comment, the more you leave the more chances you get. (I love getting to know you.) If you choose to follow, I will give you two extra points and last but not least, if you add my button to your blog, you get three chances. It is just that easy. Just let me know what you have done and Noah and I will do the rest!

Have a great White Wednesday! Remember to reach out to someone this week, you will never know, until Heaven, who you could bless! Martha

Oh Martha. You have such beautiful things. Loved the jewelry, plus the little angel handle cup (charming) and the white sculpture of a head....all lovely. Thank you so much for sharing. If I don't write down what I plan to do for the day, I'm lost. Always bouncing around from project to project, errand to errand. How grateful I am that I am able to keep busy. Have a peaceful, great day, dear Martha. Sincerely, Susan from writingstraightfromtheheart.blogspot.com

Hi, Martha,
Your whites look so pretty when paired with your beautiful jewelry! I am glad you got to spend some fun time with your mother. I know she enjoyed it, too. Thank you so much for coming by for a visit and brightening my whole day with your kind comments. Vicki p.s. I would love to be entered in your one year anniversary giveaway.

Martha, you are going to get an A+ in your cooking class - your enthusiasm and good humor are contagious - all the way through the internet! The recipes I have on my blog are so easy - just use the directions like a little road map and before you know it - there you are - all done!

I love white. It is, to me, such a soft color. Of course, where I live I am surrounded by it for about 5 months out of the year, so I'd better like it☺

Enter me again in your giveaway, please. I ♥ Ashwell books!

You better get cracking on those curtains! You don't want to get in trouble with your daughter, LOL! Your whites are all so sparkling and beautiful especially the brooches. Have a beautiful Thursday Martha!

Wonderful whites Martha! You have been one busy lady. Hope you find time for relaxing -- and then get to work on those curtains! Blessings to you and yours, Tammy

I see you....in the mirror. Did I ever tell you that I collect cake plates? And I better not find that one in the mail...
Wonderful Whites...looking forward for the reds.

How I love your beautiful things! You display them so beautifully and make me just want to reach into the photo and touch them.
I continue to enjoy your blog so much. And, yes, my heart does almost hurt with love when I'm with my grandchildren. Children are wonderful but grandchildren make the world a special place.
May you be blessed of the Lord today, my friend.

In Grace,
