Around the House for Pink Saturday 5/1/2010

Happy pink saturday and welcome to my blog. If you visit with Beverly at How Sweet The Sound, you're sure to see lots of lovely pink blogs. I forgot to make note of the ones I visited last week.

I just thought I'd post some pix of things around the house today. I'm so busy doing other things that I pre-schedule these posts for days like this. You can hate me for this, not because I'm beautiful and/or smart. ;-)

Chandelier beads.

I've been thinking of making some different chair covers in white. I'll probably sell these if I do. Anyone interested? Contact me. Four chair covers for a ridiculously low price! Isn't that bouquet of flowers lovely?

Tie back in my bedroom.

Violets remind me of my grandmother. These are the most real ones I've ever seen for being faux.

Tie back in my bathroom.

Little pot of posies on a bathroom shelf.

Gorgeous chicks inhabit this home. Hah!!! ;-)

Home grown rose.....uuuuuhhhh, I mean hand made.

Thumb tacks on one of my memory boards.

Just finished this little sweetie.

Random Thoughts:

I recent was surfing the blogs and came upon one where a woman was so excited about receiving her new cookware. How any woman can be stoked about cookware is beyond me! That's what they have Olive Garden for in my opinion—cooking.

Without patience we cannot please God. This is hitting home with me recently. I seriously am working on it. I am!

The disintegration of rational society started in the drift from hearth and family. The solution must be a drift back. Be part of the solution.

Remember when you found out what your local popular DJ looked like? Uuuuggghhhhh!

I guess we can still embarrass our kids when we're 70 and they're 47 and 48. Our son asked his dad, Love Bunny, a while back if he was going to wear white socks with his jeans when they were going out somewhere together while he was here visiting some months back. Hubs said yes, he was. Son just looked at him as if he were 18 and dad was going to make him look like a geek simply by being with him. Son just said, "Okay." It was funny the way he raised those eyebrows. Son, not Love Bunny!


  1. Great post - love your tie backs and ribbon roses. Re sons etc - my friend's son can embarass us both (or is it the other way round?)

    Happy Pink Saturday!

  2. Connie ~
    What a sweet post ~ I love the last paragraph :)

  3. Happy Pink Saturday
    All your roses are so sweet and I especially loved all your rosy little thumb tacks!!! No why didn't I think of that!
    You always have such good ideas!

  4. I loved the story of your son and I so relate.

    I would LOVE to buy those chairs,,if hubby was back to work full time girl, I would. enjoyed the pics

  5. You have some great pink things and I love your roses!

    I think it is great that you prepost- I must learn how to do that!

    Best wishes and happy weekend,

  6. Gorgeous pinkness all over the house, just lovely.
    Happy May Day my dear.

  7. Everything is pink! A lovely thing, indeed! Blessings on this new day!

  8. Connie,
    Your chandy is stunning and what a great job catching the different colors reflecting in the prisms!!
    Your DR chair covers are so pretty but I don;t have the right chairs for them. I love your handmade roses!!

    I am loving all of your PINK goodes especially whem many of them are ROSES! You know me and ROSES? lol Have a great time this weekend!

  10. Your home is so beautiful. I loved the random thoughts, you're so funny. The one about the DJ especially tickled me. It's funny how we have this image in our head of how someone looks just by how they sound or what they write. That's why I don't have my picture on my blog profile. I hate to disappoint.
