White Wednesday...

Welcome to "White Wednesday" hosted by Kathleen at FADED CHARM COTTAGE.

A few close up photo's of my mosaic high top table and chair that are in my pool table/bar area. I purchased this set and another with the same pattern a number of years ago from Home Goods! I thought I could use them outside by my pool when I had a party and bring them back inside after. Well they never saw the light of day. I was so in love with them I wouldn't bring them outdoors, not even for a short while.
The other set is a regular height table and chair set. My favorite is the high top, though.

My plate collection purchased long ago from Home Goods, sits above the high top table and chair set. I love the pattern on the plates and the huge platter in the center is so pretty. I like the different shapes in this collection.

Another wall with a few of the same patterned plates...

The third and final wall of plates. I love the cute wall pocket tin that I filled with white and pink roses. I made one for each of my four sister's so we would all have the same "heart" tin. Enough with the plates, my husband started calling the family room "the plate room". I think three walls of plates where plenty anyway!

It was a tough compromise doing the room as he had his ideas and I had mine. He wanted a "man cave" and of course I wasn't going to let that happen. I did let him have one wall by the bar area that has 80's Michelob Bar Photos of girls with really, really, big, yes big.... hair!! I had to give into letting him hang something from the days when we used to own a neighborhood bar. That's another chapter of our life and I'll save that for another time.

I'll leave you with a picture of my apple tree from my front yard. It just blossomed a few days ago and won't stay white for long, sigh...
