Pink Saturday

Good Morning, The weeks go by so fast, and the older we get the faster they pass. Hope all of you had a great fourth of July and were able to visit with family and friends.

Joining Beverly this past few weeks for pink Saturday has been a real enjoyment. Makes you really look around the house for the pink and brings back a lot of memories. Be sure you visit her Web Site, "How Sweet The Sound" You will want to visit all the other ladies and see all the pink goodies. Be sure you let them know you were there to visit.

My first gift to show you is from our studio and is one of our altered art hand mirrors, Of course all decorated in pink flowers, ribbons and lace and surrounds a sweet porcelain doll head. You will find these for sale on our website.

We have a fabulous lady in Canada who has been making porcelain doll heads for us. This sweet little lady sits on top of a hat box and is surrounded with the most exquisite mix of vintage lace, ribbons, flowers and more. She is so lush and feminine. My first boxes I have in my home came from a couple ladies in Tennessee who I use to work the Gatlinburg, Craft fair within the early 80's. I have so enjoyed them.

My Son Joe is a lover of vintage and has many collection, Cameras being one of them so I thought why not decorate one to fit my decor so I can enjoy it every day. This is one of the old one that expanded. Of course, it has been decorated with pink. Has sit on a side table in my living room for many years.

Victorian Shoes are another thing I love. I have one that my mother wore in the 20's. She was from a family of eight girls and somehow she ended up with 3 shoes, a pair and one extra, I have two sisters so I decided to decorate them and each of us would have one for memories and to enjoy. This one I purchased some time ago and decorated to sell. You will find it on my web site. This is an ivory shoe and of course decorated pink.

Darrell and I make lamp out of most anything and this is one of my favorite. He took an old sewing machine and mounted it in a box and wired for a lamp and then my part was to paint it white and add the beautiful rose design to it. I love it and it sets in my family room. We have sold probably a dozen of these through the years at the craft fair. Wonderful gift for someone who sews.

This sweet mix surrounds the entrance of my front door, My room is pink around the top half and I painted a sweet design of sweet peas and columbine as a border around the room. The bunny is a vacuum cleaner cover. Purchased from another fellow crafter in Gatlinburg, The little bear and bunny were crafted by another lady at the show, Wonderful work, When friends come to visit they always tell me how they enjoy just looking around as I have so many beautiful handcrafted items I have collected over the years of working the shows.
The last one to share with you is a beautiful Strawberry sachet, lavender filled and decorated all in pink. I have one hanging on the bed post. We also make these for sale.
I hope you have enjoyed my little contribution for this week, Be sure you visit as many as you can and let them know you were there. Hope you all have a blessed week.
