White Wednesday, Snippets from Ozark

I have a few photos of "White" from my small booth at Spring Creek to share. It's a tiny space, but the atmosphere of the tea room is wonderful. I try to go after lunch hours to be out of the way of the shoppers and diners. If you happen to go on a Sunday afternoon, the heavenly aromas from the kitchen will cause you to go crazy, because that's when the owner and head chef, Brenda, makes her homemade crutons, and does some of her baking. Everything on the menu is so delicious you can hardly make a decision! If you are traveling or live anywhere near SW Missouri you have to come for lunch. Spring Creek is a landmark lunch experience!

A little collage art

40's cornucopia vases

stack of dessert plates and teapot for one

This needlepoint piece is so sweet, it has a Scotty Dog in the doorway.

Poor Baby, she's really fallen to pieces. I asked her to please get her
"head on straight" for the photo.

Great old white wicker table

This is an image from last year this time, but I just love this old flower container. I have only seen this one. It is some kind of composite material, not sure, but it has a home with Judy, now, from Leola's.

And speaking of Leola's, here are the rest of my "White" photos, from a few weeks ago. After hearing Jan (Summer Sundays) talk about the store, I imagine that it's all "left the building"!

This white cupboard of Jan's has been one of my favorite pieces.

Thank you, Kathleen.

Have a wonderful White Wednesday!



  1. You have a beautiful booth! Everything works well together. I like putting vintage post cards in frames, too--they are little artworks in themselves and you can switch them around so easily. As for your friend's white cabinet-I agree with you-it's wonderful. And all that storage space!

  2. Good Morning Debra
    Your White Wednesday post is amazing! What wonderful treasures. I love the photos of the women--they look French to me and the Hoosier is really a great one. Will have to take a trip down there someday soon. I think it is about 12 hours from here-I will have to mapquest it.
    Have a great day

  3. Wonderful stuff! but our absolutely fave is the poor doll...she needs a good home to go to!

  4. Your space looks wonderful! I am going to have to go back down and check it out. And I need to visit Leola's before school starts. I haven't been there all summer. You are so right about Spring Creek being a lunch landmark. You've got me craving it right now!

  5. So very pretty... the swans are my favorite...

  6. I always love seeing all your white things. So pretty as always!

  7. Such wonderful whites you have shared today. I especially loved the collage in the white frame. Really pretty! :)

  8. What a sweet embroidered sampler & there's something about that solitary clock face that just speaks to me.

    LOVE, LOVE, LOVE that white cupboard!

  9. Love your little suitcase vignette, and the bird cage,
    and your doll, she just speaks to you heart doesn't she?

    blessings and thanks for coming by.

  10. You always take great pictures of Leola's. Your Spring Creek space looks great too. I'm so excited cause I got a new camera. Just wish it didn't take so long getting used to a new one. Bring your's on over & I'll set on it. Just don't make me pay for a new one -- I already owe for one. Jan
