White Wednesday: Treasures at Home

Seashells, wooden boxes, millinery flowers and embroidered runners - all mementos and projects that feather my nest and stir happy memories of days gone by...

I've filled this seashell box with old fashioned flocked paper forget me not millinery flowers.

At Christmas, the flowers will be replaced with greenery, berries and tinsel spikes with beads - an easy way to fit everyday items into the holiday decorating.

This is the time of year when we gear up for the next four months to get all of our ornaments made and ready by September. It's all glitter all the time around here!

I'm linking up with White Wednesday over at Faded Charm. Be sure to stop by to see more pretty ways to use white.
