Random Whites

Today I found a couple items in my work room that I thought could use a redo, a little gold painted basket and a wood candle stick. Kinda sorry looking aren't they ?Here I have given them a coat of white spray paint , looking better already !
While they were drying I decided to take a walk around the yard and see if I could find some more white to photograph.
In a clump of trees near the road there is a small wild Plum tree , They have the sweetest smelling white blooms , and the bees love them.

Across the street my neighbors have planted some Bradford Pear trees along their drive . They started blooming this last weekend.

I love the cone shape of them , and they grow pretty fast too.
I think I am going to get one for my front yard so it can shade the sunny end of the porch.
Then I can look forward to it's early spring blooms every year .

Here we go , finished product !
Together it looks like a compote .

I took both these pictures with no flash , just different lights on in the room .
It is also late in the day , so there is not much natural light.

Hope you like my random whites and the walk around the yard.
I do believe spring has finally sprung.
I'm linking this with Faded Charm's White Wednesday.
Go on over and see all the white beauty !


  1. What a great idea! They look so good together! And to think, I never would have looked twice at either one if I were shopping.

  2. I'm so excited for spring!!!! Love all the blooms....spring really is on it's way!! Great project!!!

  3. This is a great site! I like the pictures and works in it!...Daniel

  4. Oh gosh, I'm actually able to leave a message--I'm so excited! Your creations look fabulous and I love the blossoms on the trees!

  5. Your little compote looks so pretty now that it's painted white, and i love the plum tree blossoms1


  6. Great projects! Your photos turned out great without a flash. I've tried turning mine off & the picture usually is better with no glare. Jan

  7. Great photos and a wonderful job~ everything looks beautiful ;-)

  8. That is so pretty! Love the way the basket came out. I just love make-overs.

  9. Sharon, Love the now white compote. Wanda said she would never have looked twice at it in a store in its "before" state. That would have been me too. But in white, filled, on top of the books, utterly charming and I would have bought it instantly. Thank you for stopping by and leaving such a needed comment on my blog. I love the Bradford pear blossoms. The wild plum is very interesting, never saw that before. May be silly question but....does it only come in white blossoms? I was out with my camera the other day and took pictures of a tree with similiar blossoms but they were dark red. Blessings.

  10. What great Spring pictures!!! Love all the trees that are flowering.
    Thanks for stopping by for a visit and leaving your sweet comment. Maybe the plate was yours? I wonder how many treasures we have found and maybe they belonged to someone here in Blogland's family, wouldn't that be something?
    Enjoy your weekend!!!
