Pink Saturday 2/11/2011

Happy pink saturday! Go visit with Beverly by clicking on the logo below to view other participant's pinks.

Is this kitchen not to die for?! I think it's the most darling, quaint kitchen I've ever seen. Just shabby chic head to toe. You'll notice a different curtain on every window. In fact, her windows are painted different colors. My type of chick! Swoon....

I've done this to my china cabinet—hang art on the side.

A darling cherub clock.

I'll be doing this in my home very, very shortly with some of my fabric stash barkcloth.

This is another of Tina's umbrellas she makes.

And another one.

And she cut a vintage lampshade in half and made this little lighting.

Just adorable.

A sparkly little jewel.

And saving the best for last, her blog. Go visit with Tina here. I'm sure you'll find her delightful.


  1. Hi Connie, thanks for showing this kitchen of Tina's. I'm going to visit her site now. If I lived alone, I think this is how my house would look. Hubby won't go for it though. I love it!

  2. Happy Pink Saturday!

    Love this clock!

  4. Love this kitchen! I must have one of those umbrellas, too. Absolutely fabulous. Your great-granddaughter is precious - love those photos. :)

  5. Adorable! Would have never thought to paint each window a different color! Reminds me of rainbow sherbet. Yummy!

  6. Oh, Connie, swoon! I love her decor & creations!

    I apologize for not being by often ... we are Head deep in 3,000+ feedsacks inventory ... thankfully it is only a once a year event! Have so missed you.

    Happy Valentine's PS weekend ~

  14. What a very cool kitchen. I love it but because I am a er, tad, anal, I don't know if I can have different curtains on each window, ha!


  15. Hugs Connie!!! I LOVE that kitchen AND did you notice how MANY Windows there are? WOW, that's a LOT of LIGHT!!! It's SO PRETTY! I like the material idea of hanging a panel. It is a fantastic idea and alternative to "WALL PAPER"! It can be changed with your MOOD TOO(How great is that). WOW I LOVE,LOVE,LOVE the umbrella, I'm going to Scoot over to meet that creative lady(Thank you so much)... Have a little more inspecting here to do too...

    Hugs, Donna

  16. Swoon is right! What gorgeous rose prints!

  17. You never fail to post the prettiest things for Pink Saturday. I LOVE that kitchen. I mean I would really love to have it. I'd be so afraid that I couldn't pull it off. I really need to work on that. If I mix patterns and colors it just looks like I don't know what I'm doing. Love all the different window colors and curtains.

    Happy Valentine Weekend Sweetie.
    Hugs....T :)

  23. Happy Pink Saturday Sweetie...
    A beautiful share. Love that kitchen, with that skirted sink, those were the days. I loved those.

    I love the beautiful creations by Tina. I will have to go and check it out. That garden umbrella is so delightful. Just HAPPY.

    Have a glorious weekend, and Happy Valentine's Day sweetie.

    Many hugs and much love, Sherry

  24. That is one of the prettiest kitchens I have ever seen. Very charming.

  25. Happy Pink Saturday Connie. Love all the photos, especially the lampshade. Hugs, Pat

  26. Love the umbrella's totally. Also the cherub clock. Off to visit her blog now. Thank you for sharing. Happy Pink Saturday/Valentine's Day.

  27. What beautiful pinks you selected today!! I love them all. I have also hung art work on the side of a bookcase and china cabinet! Happy Valentines Day!

  28. You are sooo right! Gotta love a gal that features a mirror over her sink!! :0)

    Wonder what that stack is that her mortar and pestle are sitting on?!?

    Happy PS!

    Big TX Hugs,

  29. What a charming, quirky, irresistible kitchen!! It looks so European, yet so uniquely one-of-a-kind, it could be anywhere, living with someone of great imagination and creativity.

    And the lampshade!! I'm on a quest right now to find the lady in California who makes such exquisite lamps, much like that. She was on a segment of House Beautiful, on A&E a good many years ago, and her creations are just lovely. She'd mentioned that Melanie and Antonio have SIXTY of her lamps in their home. I'd settle for ANY one.

    Thank you for all the beautiful inspiration, and Happy Pink Saturday!!


  30. Love your post. My favorite is the different colored windows and curtains. I can never make up my mind and what a great way to showcase all of your favorite curtains at one time. The umbrellas are lovely. How pretty they would be in a rose garden. Have a lovely weekend and Valentine's Day.

  31. Love, love that kitchen, Connie! It is absolutely charming.


  32. I love shabby And chic. Greats ideas for what to do to my kitchen.
    Happy Valentine's day!
