White Wednesday...

Is that day of the week when we show our love for everything and anything white.
Today, some shots from my own home and some inspiring words I came across...




"Home is the one place in all this world where hearts are sure of each other.
It is the place of confidence.



It is the place where we tear off that mask of guarded
and suspicious coldness
which the world forces us to wear in self-defense,



and where we pour out the unreserved communications of full and confiding hearts.

It is the spot where expressions of tenderness gush out



without any sensation of awkwardness and without any dread of ridicule"

~Frederick W. Robertson~

I had to go back and look at the pictures because I was SO absorbed in the "words". Like you, I'm a "word" person, and loved your words today. The pictures were also pretty cool.

Take care, Sue

Such beautiful whites throughout your home, but I think the star of this post is definitely that quote! I think we all feel that way about our homes!

Happy WW! I love all your whites...very pretty!!
I'm so glad you visited, and thanks for your sweet comment about my roses! My roses are spent, too (that was an old photo from a couple of months ago). I've had to prune them all back and am now waiting for the second batch of blooms, which are never quite as pretty. :(
Have a great day!
