White Wednesday




(My first time participating in Kathleen's White Wednesday found here: http://fadedcharmcottage.blogspot.com/ )

Here is my random collection of white today :) 
Thanks for coming!

In our neighborhood these wonderful meringue cookies are called Angel Bits :) 
There was a woman
whose nickname was Teeny, who left gifts of these on peoples' doorsteps :)  


Oh! I remember these things. They are long gone, sold in my Etsy or on my flea market friday at some point. 


There is a castle in our town and this little friend of mine posed for me a couple of years ago. 



White makes me happy and I think of words like:

 *sugar*,
*sand*
*Purity*
*snow*
*milkglass*
*goosedown* (well, it does :) 

I was accused in college of having a hospital room since I had decorated in white! It made me feel better, I guess! 
Hope you feel great today :)

Hey Phyllis! Glad you joined White Wednesday! Looove your stuff. When we bought our white kitchen and doors, and painted windows and furniture white, many family members and friends commented just the same. I replied I hadn't asked for their opinion ;))))))
Hugs,
Monicax.

Great Whites!
Thanks for visiting my blog, Phyllis!
I'll be following yours from here on out. I've enjoyed reading back to July 21, so far. I'll have to read a little further tonight!

Beautiful! I find myself so soothed in white spaces, but I don't seem to have the discipline to execute them myself. I have the attention span of a gnat when it comes to colors -- I can get completely drawn to any color at any time.

Thanks for stopping by, You were probably close by when you came to Dearborn, did you mean Village Ford for the Cars, that is just a 1/4 mile away.... Magic Pan has been closed for years, I don't think any exist anymore ~ I worked at the Magic Pan in Dearborn at Fairlane Town Center Mall in 1975-76 When they first opened.... Such a small world it is ~ I will visit again soon

When I read that your neighbour used to leave meringues on peoples doorsteps I couldnt help but laugh. I imagined opening your front door and there just being a meringue not wrapped or anything just sat on the step.

I imagine she isnt crazy but I couldnt help but picture her as the mad woman on my street who wears a swimming cap pulled on top of her head (without the hair tucked in) who stands on the roundabout and spits at cars. My dad once invited her in for a cup of tea (after she sat on our wall for over an hour) and she said "yes because there are snipers in the clouds waiting to shoot me"
