Pink Saturday 8/14/2010

Welcome to Pink Saturday once again. Please visit all the participants at Beverly's How Sweet The Sound by clicking on the pink logo below:

With the request from Beverly to visit with new bloggers I've never visited with before, this past week I visited with Donna at Conghaile Cottage, Rebecca @ Shabby Pink World, Terry at My Antique Attic and Laura at Laura's Rose Garden. Go visit with them. I think you'll like their blogs.

Just browse what I've been doing lately. Making roses to sell.

My box of Sculpey and Fimo.

Aren't these cute?

Now, I'm making a flag banner and cut out an extra part from a vintage Wilendur tablecloth. So the first one who says they want it, gets it. Free. Just post here and the very first one who says they want it, gets it. My email comes in by day and time (as everyone's does) so the earlier the better. You can make a banner for your own home with this starter piece. ;-)



  1. Oh' goodness me am I really the first commenter on this post. Could I really be that lucky. I'd love to have your banner. It's so pretty.

    Hugs...Tracy :)

  2. Hello beautiful lady!
    Looks like you have been busy crafting!
    I love your roses!
    Happy Pink Saturday..
    Hugs, Ann

  3. Looking forward to hearing about your polymer clay experiences - this is one I had to give up on (RSI) as even turning the handle of the pasta machine was too much. These do look lovely, though. I bet you have to beat them off with a stick - anyone who sees them will want to buy them!

    Happy Pink Saturday!

  4. Now Connie, after all that excitement I can get back to why I really came by. I loved your sweet comments about my giveaway things. It was so sweet of you to leave me a message even though you don't want to enter.

    It's so funny that you've been working with polymer clay this week. I bought some along with the pasta maker and all years ago and never did anything with it. Just like me, hun? Then just this week I pulled some out and made mushroom pin heads. I'll try to post them later this week. No where as cute as these roses though.

    hugs and love, Tracy :)

  5. Oops....I bet I wasn't first. I just realized the comments aren't showing up yet and I'm way after the post. Oh' well, someone will love that cute banner flag.

    Hugs...Tracy :)

  6. Oh' I just saw that precious picture of Sweet Caroline (oh no, now I'll be singing Neil Diamond all night), with the cute kitties. That's adorable and she is just beautiful!
    I love your new blessing.

    Hugs...Tracy :)

Lucky winner is all I can say.Going work in my craft room today and see what kind of mess I can make. Love and hugs, Pat

  19. Love all your things. You've been a busy crafter. I've always wanted to try something with polymer clay. But as you know from my last post, I don't need to get into one more thing. Thanks for your encouraging comments to me.
    I see I'm not the first one wanting the banner, but it gives me some great ideas.
    Just love your creations and talent.

  20. Oh pooooo! I am so slow and missed out on all the fun! But...I am a loving all your hm goodies you've been working on gf!!!
    I might enter you anyway..hehehe cause I love ya!

  21. Hi Connie, thanks for the visit. Let me know how you do with the rose water, I think red roses might give it a pink tint. Love your pink.

  22. G'day sweet Connie ~ You are such an amazing lady ... such pretty rosettes you are creating. Lucky Tracy gets the beautiful banner ...

    Do you ever stop creating? You are always sharing such pretties, Connie ... love them all.

    Have a lovely PS summer weekend ~

  23. Well dang, looks likelots of people were here before me! lol. As usual your pretty pink ideas are beautiful. I have a couple of those old tablecloths but I just can't bring myself to cut into them yet.

  24. Oh how pretty! Beautiful fabric on that banner and I love your little roses, too. Happy Pink Saturday, Connie~

  25. Hi Connie, you always amaze me with your energy for crafting new treasures. I love your sense of adventure. I would rather decorate a bedroom. HA! Your roses are so sweet and I bet that banner is on it's way to some lucky blogger. I have little patience with detailed small stuff. I admire your talent so much.

    Believe me the purple walls in my daughter's room was awful. More like eggplant purple. HA! Good riddance.

    Have a wonderful weekend.
    Hugs, Jeanne

  26. Great craft!!!
    Happy Pink Saturday my sweet Connie!
