Still loving W.H.I.T.E.

I have been making ribbon roses and
actually it is quite fun once you get
it figured out. I have several laying around,
but I love the ones that fade from
pink to white.

I really should finish it. I think if you would turn this over you would find
that it still has a pin stuck through it.

Love these antique plates with dainty pink roses too.

Did you catch a glimpse of my wire greenhouse? {that is what the tag said it was} I purchased it at Home Goods when hubby and I went shopping last Saturday. I think it looks neat over the plates, but I did take it outside and it looks great with a plant too. More about that another day.

I just had to share my phlox again. They are finally in full bloom and I had to take pictures while I can. They are a lot like peonies in that they are beautiful one day and if you get rain they are ruined. I just love them and their wonderful aroma.

This bunch is on the south side of our garage and I see them everyday when I look out the bathroom window. Pure beauty.

These phlox are outside my back door beside my fence
and fairy house. I just dug up starts from the main
plants by the garage one year and planted some here
and out in front of my house too. They are doing

Please visit Kathleen over at Faded Charm for more
WW posts. I want to tell you all again that I really do try
and get to each of your blogs on this special day of
the week, but some just load too slow and I am not
able to view them in a timely manner.

Also, some I can view and read and then when
I go to comment it takes forever so I have to
abandon midstream. So sorry. I hope to have
high speed someday. We keep trying to get it ,
but everytime we are told it is not available to us.
One of these days...

Happy White Wednesday~

Hi Sandi!
I love phlox and wish I had more in white!
It is so hard to find white flowers here!
The ribbon rose looks amazing with the tinge of pink at the center!
Have a wonderful day!

Your phlox looks amazing!! I would love to have some of those in my garden. I wonder if they grow well in very hot climates. I LOVE that terarium built out of vintage windows, too (drool)!
Happy WW!

Hi Sandi! Oh my gosh! Your ribbon rose looks so real! So pretty! And your phlox is breathtaking. I'm definitely going with all white flowers in my pots and baskets next year. There's just something so peaceful, cool, and calming about them....
