Fun white finds and creations

It has been awhile since I posted some of my finds so I wanted to share them with you today.

I am still in love with vintage clock faces and almost anything that has numbers on it. I
 found this vintage french white dial in Leslie's french booth at an antique mall up by
where my daughter lives. Off of a phone possibly?? I also purchased the black clock 
face there as well.
Quite the frame...don't you agree? I think it is cast iron. I will figure out something to
do with it soon. I already have some ideas. 50 cents at the Goodwill. Best buy in
a long time at that store. They are usually very picked over.

I found this white shelf at an antique mall for a great price. I have been looking for a
vintage shelf for just the right spot.  This one will not work there , but I couldn't pass it
up! I will figure out where to put it soon!  lol

I snatched these vintage white pots right up when I saw them. I love anything that
has to do with gardening and especially when the item is white. :)

I have been working on some items for the Artisan Fair that I will be in when August rolls around.
I found a very large stash of these heavy duty blank cards at the Goodwill also and I am having
fun rubber stamping images onto them.

I have also used some of them to wrap with vintage lace to sell as well.

I always love to  embellish candles and have been making a few of these for the sale.

Now, I realize the above candles are not white, but wanted to share them anyways.
I found them at Target on clearance. These are the only two I could find and I went
 to several Targets in search for more, but alas...none to be found.

I just HAD to show you my beautiful white impatiens hanging in a basket on my
new fence outside the back door. They are doing wonderful this year. 

Happy White Wednesday to each and every one of you who take the time to visit me.
{I know I am rather early for that this week *smile*}
I can't always reciprocate, but I try to visit as often as I can.
Celebrate life!!

I love your finds. Especially your white frame, I plucked on -the mirror out of my neighbors trash the other day, don't know where it will go, but somewhere. I LOVE your white impatients, and your statue of St. Francis. I've been wanting one of those, I always seem to find them when I'm far away from home and can't carry it. but one day...

Hi Sandi!
I just love all you are making for the show (especially those cards)!
Your flowers are looking beautiful ~ I came home from my week of r and r and my flowers on my back deck looked horrible! My daughter "forgot" about them!
