White Wednesday, The Barn Chicks Party,Inspirational Friday, & a Fun Giveaway!

This post is going to be a little different in the fact that there are so many different things from feminine to rustic, due to the fact that I wanting to join up with Kathleen @ faded charm, for White Wednesday & Karen @ brayton homestead interiors for the Barn Chick Party, Debra @ Common Ground for Inpirational Friday & also share a great giveaway that my dear friend Lynda is having! Lynda's also my blogging partner, she doesn't get to do much blogging right now due to her teaching jobs that keep her quite busy. I hope you will stop by her website and check it out! www.lyndacade.com. You can also get to Lynda's website from our blog, and enter the giveaway, just scroll down to next post!

I'll have my White Wednesday, and Inpirational Friday pictures first!
Then my Barn Chick party pictures!
And Lynda's beautiful sterling silver jewelry among other jewelry designs that she creates, she will also be adding estate finds to her website soon!
These are some of my white vintage purses I'm showing today, hope you enjoy them!

I keep these purses and more of my vintage purses hanging on the walls in my powder room, it's a great way to display them!

I guess you can see that I'm just crazy over purses! I collected them for years... and love designing my own!

This is one of my favorite purses, I just love the beautiful flower design in the center of it.
Well here's where we change from the feminine to the rustic. I have so many different things that I just swoon over. It amazes me that I can be so into the feminine and fu fu things, and also have such a love for these old Barn! I just love how they have stood the test of time!
Sorry some of my pictures are so hard to see... just click on the picture to enlarge them! I clicked on this picture to enlarge myself and I though it looked just like a painting. If I could paint I think instead of roses and things like that I would paint old Barns!
I think these old barns are just so beautiful, even when their falling apart. I'm so glad that so many people keep letting them stand and don't tear them down! Hopefully they will be around for many more years!!! How sweet did you see the cows in the picture too!

Here's just a few of the lovely items on Lynda's new website. www.lyndacade.com

I believe this is one of the pieces that she is giving away!
Hope you check out Lynda's website, she does custom orders too, and just in time for Christimas!!! Be sure to go over to Kathleen @ Faded Charm to visit her and all of the other participants for White Wednesday & Karen @ Brayton Homestead Interiors and all of the participants for the Barn Chick Party, Debra @ Common Ground and all of the other particpants! Sorry my link thing is not working, I'm going to see if my husband can link everything up when he gets to work in the morning from his computer! Thanks for stopping by.

Wouldn't it be lovely to attend enough parties to be able to carry each and every one of those gorgeous bags? Oooh...the stories they could tell!
I'm in love with old barns too. Must be the yearning for simpler times.

The white purses are stunning. I love the olden barns and I just walk up to them and snap away. Trespass I do all the time. Not that I encourage that in others. Your images are very good and keep searching for barns. ♥O
