Pink Saturday 2/26/2011

Welcome to my Pink Saturday post again. To visit all the participants, go to Beverly's blog by clicking on the logo below.

I've been busy and had a big disappointment, which I'll go into detail about in another blog post, so I'm scrambling today to find pink to share again with you.

This is a little bird cage I bought and shabby froufrou-ed up. I simply put some faux grass and tiny birds in there with tiny roses that aren't quite visible to you and then hung it with pink curling ribbon, which is tremendously cheap and quite decorative in the house.

This little painting was for sale on ebay and didn't sell. I can't remember the name of the artist now but I contacted her later and asked if it was still for sale. She said that she'd just give it to me! She included the darling frame and the picture and didn't even charge me for postage. The generosity of some people still astounds me. What a charming woman she is. I just love this little teacup picture and its frame. I am a truly blessed chick and most grateful to her for this gift.

I love this little cottage print and can't remember where it came from, but isn't it cute?

While these crystal stemware glasses aren't pink, the paper in the background is. I used it to line the back of our humble china cabinet when we moved into this house 6 years ago. I also trimmed the edges by tacking snippets of vintage lace onto the shelves. I don't get rid of any lace if there is a possible use for it. And these was.

Just a closeup of a few different patterns of our crystal.

These 2 glasses were bought at a neighbor's yard sale when they died. They were both very close to us and died with days of each other. Hubby went over because I couldn't bear to go through their things. He bought these 2 crystal goblets and they are the thinnest and most delicate goblets I've ever held. I am extremely careful with them when we use and then wash them. All by hand, of course.

Love Bunny isn't necessarily a romantic guy but while shopping last week he suggested we buy some of these $5 bouquet of flowers. I didn't disagree of course. Sweet of him.

These two knobs are ones my daughter gave me several years ago. I'd like to make some like them but I'm just being lazy lately so it'll have to wait until I feel like it. I have no clue what I'd do with them, but the pursuit would be as sweet as the rose knobs I think.

I finally added a bit of white trim around the bottom of this lamp shade and got roses almost around the whole thing. I've run out of these particular paper roses and won't be able to finish until I get more. Very hard to find also.


Just a few more rooms to drool over. Imagine your little princess in this room. Heck, I'd take it for myself and put in a queen size bed and get rid of the toys...maybe. ;-) These are all Ethan Allen rooms.

And for your little heroes, this darling bedroom that would probably take him into his teens.

Oh my stars, be still my heart! On second thought, I'd probably prefer this one with the nook off the master suite. Is this not gorgeous?

    What a beautiful share. Oh I love seeing the beautiful roses around the lampshade, how elegant they are. The lace and pearls really pop on there.

    Your little bird house is so delightful. You are so talented with the frou-frou bit. I love it.

    Can't wait to see those little pink roses turned into door knobs, as they would be SO sweet.

    Many hugs and much love, Sherry

  9. Hi Connie, wow, love your crystal and the patterns are dreamy.
    You are so right about some people, they have hearts of gold and are more generous than one would believe. I think both your paintings are special and the colors are soft and perfect.
    Happy Pink Saturday and love bunny is special too, Char

  20. Hello Connie, this is a belated pink Saturday comment. I was busy, (what's new) with a 70th Bday party for my sister. My sister's party was wonderful and she loved every minute of the fun, food and most of all, her family and friends who attended. She ended up with lots of lovely gifts, lovingly given from a crowd of 34 people to help her celebrate being 70.

    Our cousin Pat was here for 10 days and we hardly ever get to see her. She was a surprise for Jane Anne's party. Bob (cousin) brought her here for the party and we took her home to Columbia, SC this morning. An eight hour round trip. I tried to watch the Academy Awards and slept through through most of it. Darn. As usual lately, I have had little time on my computer.

    Now that I have caught you up with my life of late, I really enjoyed seeing what tweaking you have been doing to pink up your home. Love the bird cage. I am thinking of spring in a big way. You have a great talent for making plain look lovely in pink. I take ideas from you Connie. The print you rec'd as a gift is darling. Yes, there are the most thoughtful blogging friends out their. I never imagined blogging would have the reward of many friendships. I love this about blogging.

    It's late and I must get to bed. Have a wonderful week.
    Love, Jeanne

  21. Hi I am a few days late for Pink Saturday. Gosh, sometimes it's hard to get it all together...especially when the weather is so nice...80's here this weekend...and HiHoney and I are getting ground ready for tomatoes and squash. Anyway, just wanted to stop by and see what you are doing Pink these days...and you certainly are doing it up always! Thanks for stopping by and commenting on my Letter T Texas post on Alphabe-Thursday. It's always great to hear from you and I do remember that you are a Texan! Hope to see ya again, soon....Sue

  22. Gosh Connie it has been so long since I have been over here- Where in the world have you been!!! Oh yea, it's me that hasn't been here :)

    Love those shoes you prettied up and I would love to go through all that fantastic fabric you have!!! Gosh what a great stash!!

    You were talking of food prices-- we are seeing many more come in to the food pantry we opened this past fall and anticipate it getting busier not slower that's for sure with the way things are going.

    bee blessed


Comments are so nice and I thank all of you that leave one for me.
