REDnesday and White Wednesday

Good morning everyone~ I am joining Sue at "It' A Very Cherry World" for REDnesday. Nothing very exciting today, just a few things in the office.
Our son Jordan gave his father this bobbly-headed Steve Yzerman for Christmas last year. Hubby is a Detroit Red Wings fan so he loved the ornament! This has a place in the office.

Also in the office is this wonderful old can which holds pens, pencils, markers, you name it.

And there is this old red sports car pencil sharpener which had belonged to one of our boys. We have kept it and yes, it still works! And what is a pencil sharpener without a red pencil?Thank you Sue for hosting REDnesday and please go check out the other reds today at

I am also joining Kathleen today for "White Wednesday" at Faded Charm for the first time. Those who have been following my blog may have seen some the whites before so I hope you will forgive me for showing them again! Some of these are metal and some are wood. Some I have painted and others came painted white and distressed already which is a look I love.
This is a chippy white painted lantern in my little garden.The bird was a brown rusty colour and I sprayed him white and did some distressing. He looks much better.
This is my Eiffel Tower which has been in my home for several years. It was a brown metal and I painted it white just a week ago. It looks better too.
This was a black wrought iron and I painted it.

The little metal table had been in our home for over thirty years and it had always been black, which I painted white about four years ago!

This is one of my favourites! My rooster was a brown metal and I painted him white. He looks so much more handsome and he knows it!The lantern and the little birdhouse above both came in white.
The white coffee table had been a dark brown walnut which I painted about three years ago. It had been in our home for over thirty years also. It looks so much nicer painted white and distressed. A close up of the leg.Lastly, is the plaster pedestal in the living room which I use as a plant stand. I've had it for a good many years too.

Well, I hope you enjoyed my whites. Thank you Kathleen for hosting White Wednesday. Please click on the link to go visit her and the other participants. Have a wonderful day everybody.
