Am I doing it right, White Wednesday?

I took some pictures around the house for my first time participating in Kathleen's White Wednesday over at Faded Charms.  Got some dusting done too, so it wasn't all play.  Plus, I got some silver trays up on my empty kitchen soffit that I've been meaning to do for awhile now.  Pictures taken, just need to be on the ball when Silver Sunday rolls around.

This is the table next to my nest, as my Mr. Wonderful calls it.  What you don't see is the dirty coffee cup, notes to myself, laptop, carmex, and overflowing stack of books and magazines!

I love this old picture of my Dad before he married my Mom.  
That's the Big 3, the Nadeau gang, don't cha know, Lloyd, John, and Ted, my dad.

 These candle pillars I made from an old stair newel post.  I love the paint layers.

Crossing my fingers that I get this linked up right with the rest of the White Wednesday Women!


  1. Looks like your White Wednesday was a success...I'm another "newbie" this week. Beautiful collection - LOVE the photo of your dad.

  2. Loved your lovely shelves with all the white dishes. I adore white dishes, anything white really but especially porcelain and wood pieces.
    those are very unusual candles, but I really like them especially on those candlesticks, they look great, also love all the dishes of buttons. Very neat, very chic!! I am new too, but I certainly think you did it right!! lol
    Blessings, Nellie
