White Wednesday

Welcome to White Wednesday
Hosted by Kathleen at Faded Charm be sure to go over there and enjoy all the wonderful white posts she has listed today.

I hope all of you had a great Labor Day weekend and if you are like me trying to get back into the swing of things.
This week has been a very busy one for me so I am not prepared for White Wednesday as planned.
Luke, my grandson had his surgery this week and everything went well. His feet and legs were turning inward from such tight muscles and tendons, that he was having a lot of cramping during the night. The surgeon cut his tendons in the ankle area, calf and thigh to lengthen them. He has had this procedure done 8 years ago, Luke is 11 years old. It is often done with those that have Cerebral Palsy. He is doing great with not much discomfort. He never complains or cries, he always has a smile and he is so good natured. The hard part is trying to do every day tasks in a body brace and both legs in casts. He is in a special wheelchair that slants because he cannot bend at the hips. But getting him to school and handling him is difficult. My daughter does a tremendous job and I am very proud of her. She ran a half marathon on Sunday so I had the kids early Sunday morning and I had my daughter and her family from MN over the holiday also. What fun and a joy to be grandma...

So this White Wednesday I took some pictures from my house. I love shell art and really any shells, here is a small sampling of carved shell.

Some souvenir shells

Here are some of my favorite white boxes

Isn't this the sweetest picture of a baby someone made and put the initials of the baby inside. It is all silk, satin and lace with paper cutout face.

That's it for this Wednesday, I hope you have a lovely white Wednesday and thank you Kathleen for another White Wednesday.

  6. I hope your grandson does well with his recovery. Your carved shell dishes are incredible, as well as your other white items. Have a lovely week.

  7. Rebecca,

    You have some very pretty shells...so delicate and sweet. I love them displayed in larger shells or in the gold containers. The cloche is also a great place to display your collection. I like the precious white 'girly' lamps...that is so 'me' also!!

    Luke looks like such a sweet and happy boy. I hope he does well with this surgery. For some reason, I have always had problems with cramping in my feet when I am lying down and though it is not nearly as bad as what Luke has, I can relate a bit. Kudos to you & your daughter for all of your hard work. You both are special ladies!

    Have a perfect week, my friend!


  8. Hi Rebecca,
    You have certainly had a busy time. I am so happy to here that Luke seems to be doing well after the surgery. Landon had this surgery about 10 years ago. It is such a worry whenever they have to have surgery. Luke is such a darling boy! Give him a hug for me please.
    I love the beautiful boxes you collect and I can't help but notice all the lovely lampshades you have. Beautiful!

  9. Oh Mrs Rebecca... what beauties you have :) I could just sit and look at these pictures all day. Luke and Zach are such beautiful boys...I am so glad that Lukes recovery is going so well. As always your email was wonderful and made me smile...Take care amor :) Rose
