White Wednesday

I am joining Kathleen at her site Faded Charm for White Wednesday.  Please go over and see her White Wednesday post it is wonderful.  Creating a summery feel in a spare bedroom today.
 I took a spare bed and put a crocheted coverlet over it and crocheted throw pillows.
This mosquito netting is a really neat addition to the room.  It is the only thing I purchased.  It was a steal at $20 on Overstock.com.
I did a little styling on the table too.  Placed a vase of sea shells, roses, and a few old books.
Reading other bloggers profiles, I have noticed a lot of you love Anne of Green Gables.
That is one of the books I have on the table.  I got it years ago at a flea market.  This book was very popular in the day and reprinted many times. This is just a much loved, tattered copy, of a reprint.
Front illustration before the title page.  I really enjoy White Wednesday.  Thanks for stopping by and viewing my post.  
I will also join The Thrifty Home's Penny Pinching Party.

Hi sherry,
I just love your guest room! The only problem is your guests may never want to leave! I really love the mosquito netting, and the Anne of Green Gables book is a real find! I loved the series! I like your map of Hawaii on the wall too. Such a relaxing space you have created :)

Hi Sherry,

That mosquito net creates a wonderful mood. Your high back oak bed is charming - they go together so well. And Anne Of Green Gables - loved the books and the Disney series with Megan Follows was so well done...


Kathy said...

Love the netting. It creates an inviting place to nap - which I feel like I need one now! Would love to see a closeup of the coverlet.
God Bless,

What a dreamy bedroom you have created! And I just started watching Anne of Green Gables today. I think I'm the only one that has never seen it! Now I want to find an old copy of the book, like yours!
Happy White Wednesday!
p.s. I keep forgetting to tell you how much I love your blog header! It looks just like an enchanted little forest!
