White Wednesday at The White Event

This past Saturday, my Picker Sister Susan (Evelyn and Rose) and I spent an amazing day at the 2nd annual "At Home With White Event" at The Wrentham Country Store. 
~*~Karen, Me, Sandi and Susan~*~

It was there, last year, that we first met the kindred spirits we found in blogland: Sandi (A Cottage Muse) and 

~*~Me, Sandi and Susan~*~

Sandi is not only a vendor there but was recently named The Wrentham Country Store's Creative Director! Congratulations Sandi! You did an amazing job at pulling together an event that is worthy of a spread in Romantic Homes and Romantic Prarie Style!

~*~Karen and I~*~

Karen is also one of the vendors and her booth was a dreamy display of  French Flair, Shabby Chic and Romantic Prairie Style. pictures to show you of all that White Loveliness as I dropped my camera five minutes after we arrived! 

So....I will share the tresors that I brought home with me instead....

I love these chippy architectural pieces....

....and this petite lace and pearl crown is so sweet...

...this old mirror frame has such lovely details...

....and how could I leave THIS behind? (sorry Karen)

I'm loving silver-plated trays these days....and this one is "footed."

And, last but not least, was this gorgeous vintage vanity tray! It has the most dreamy patina and will look just lovely on my vanity.

All in all, it was a Wonderful White Event and I for one am counting down the days until NEXT YEAR! 
If you'd like to see more pictures about this delightful event, check out Susan, Sandi and Karen's blogs!

I'm joining Kathleen at Faded Charm Cottage on this White Wednesday!

  25. Michelle,
    Were you able to get your camera fixed or did you buy a new one? So sorry that happened to you, but you handled it with such grace. I probably would have wanted to throw a tantrum. :)
