The White Bench.

While I'm super busy these days, with creations, spring cleaning, makeovers and projects to be accomplished, and between one stitch and a coat of paint, Kim and I are enjoying the garden too (then I wonder why I'm running out of steam! LOL)! For White Wednesday today I am sharing one of my favorite things- my 'White Bench'! This was given me by my DH on Valentine's Day a few years ago, when we moved to the countryside. 

Learning how to relax and take some rest when my body requires it, is my goal for 2010.  Here we go! I love taking tea in the garden, enjoying silence, Nature and its Beauty...

... and Kim too! She's drooling over my cinnamon cookies, by the way- I didn't ask her to model for me, but those cookies were so inviting that she hoped to have one!

Aren't these little white beauties from the garden just lovely?

Lemon scented tea in my favorite white tea set!

May I have a cookie now??

To see many other wonderful whites, please visit our hostess Kathleen at Faded Charm.
Have a  splendid day!
