White Wednesday, a few of my favorite things

Here are a few of my favorite things that happen to be white.  Enjoy this White Wednesday, be sure to check out Kathleen and all the other posts over at Faded Charm.

First up is the step stool that usually lives in my pantry.  That back drop is not a pretty site at the moment so I moved it out into the hall.  I got this from my Uncle Jack who had it at his cabin until he decided to sell.  I love the chippy white paint and knowing it used to be from a favorite Uncle makes it more special to me.  I'm sure you've seen similar step stools before, the top seat hinges up so you can also use that as a step.  I use it alot, alot, alot.

Next is a little 'arrangement' I made for Mother's Day.  I've changed the little sign to spring now.  Who doesn't love birds?  I especially like Robins, my home state of Michigan's state bird.

Now if anyone were to ask what my favorite thing to drink was, if I could only drink one thing for the rest of my life, contrary to popular belief, it would not be a margarita, it would be milk!

Here's a tall cool one in glass from my favorite restaurant, the Hungry Peddler in LaCrosse Wisconsin.  Since we moved from Minnesota, it's not so convenient to get there, go figure.  It's probably been 8 years since we've had the pleasure.  I'll be up north for a couple trips this summer so I'm hoping I can get my fix.  The Hungry Peddler is a little, maybe 18 tables, family owned restaurant with great food and fair prices.  If you're int the area treat yourself, you won't be disappointed. 

Well, now I've done it, I'm hungry!

  6. Hi Susanne! It is so nice to connect with you!

    LOVE that wonderfully chippy step stool of yours!!

    Thank you so much for coming by Sassafras Stuff! You know, you're right, why do men have such an aversion to painting over wood? It just makes no sense to me!! I appreciate your suggestion, and I'll have to play around with that idea of mismatching the door pulls! Sounds quirky and fun!

    I'm signing on as a follower so I can keep up with you!!

    Take care! Warmly,
