White Wednesday

I'm here for my 3rd joining of White Wednesday.... which pales in comparison to the 50th! for the creator (Kathleen of Faded Charm) of this fun post idea that's caught on like wild fire!!
I purchased this dresser mirror (the beveled glass sold me) in its original oak finish a number of years ago when I was "into" natural woods. For a long while it sat in my basement collecting dust. Then.....when the tides turned and white became my passion, it was promptly painted.....along with anything else I could get my hands on!

Hanging it right side up just didn't look right so as you can see....I hung it upside down. Because the room it's hanging in has an ocean-like theme...I added a ribbon strung with sand dollars and star fish to complete the look.

Happy WW!

It's darling with the seashells and I love it upside down... whimsical and pretty at the same time!

I like it... and the top could be the perfect spot to display a picture! Of course the seashells are the most wonderful touch!

Hi Diane! I've been following your blog for some time now and I LOVE it!!! You are a huge favorite! Your photos and ideas are incredible. I've just now started blogging myself. Check it out when you have a moment at
I wanted to tell you that I'm the dealer at the Wrentham Country Store that you bought that shabby white cupboard from awhile back (that you blogged about) I was sooo tickled to see it there and hear your plans for it. Did you find the perfect place for it?
