Pink Saturday

Good Morning Ladies,
So glad to be back home and to join Pink Saturday again. I didn't get to visit the others last week but do plan to get to as many as I can this Saturday. Be sure you visit and leave a comment. I am sure Beverly did not realize how this would grow when she started. It is really amazing and so enjoyable to see all the post. My hubby has always laughed at me as I love driving through towns at night and getting a glimpse through peoples windows. So interesting to see the difference in decorating. Could call me a peeping Tom I guess. lol!

This week I am sharing a couple of purchases I made at the show last week. Like I need another doll but she was just to gorgeous to pass up and of course in pink. She stands nearly 3 feet tall and is a beautiful Victorian lady with the most wonderful eyes and hair. I purchased her from a doll artist who lives in Maryville, Tenn. She has a new home on a cabinet in my second bathroom. My other purchase was a sweet wreath from Cricket who also live in Maryville. She is an amazing floral artist. Grows all her own flowers and dries them using a commercial freeze dry machine. I also got a fall wreath that I will share later.



I have got to take the time to learn how to post in advance. We are off to Claypool Hill, Virginia today to an antique auction. Will be selling some of the items from my old house so anxious to see what they will bring. The auction will be selling over 600 items this evening. Enjoy your day and looking through the windows of all the ones who are precipitating this week. lol!

Happy Pink Saturday, Judy, and good luck with your sale.

Your new things are so pretty. I have always been fascinated with the freeze-drying process.

Hi Judy, That doll is amazing! There is a blogger who's blog is called House Peepers because, like you, she likes to peep in people's homes at night to see how they decorate. Have fun at the auction. ~ Lynn

Good luck @ the auction! And I'm a peeping tom of sorts myself. When I was newly married we spent a lot of time driving around the nicest neighborhoods of our college town imagining where we'd live someday. Take care now and lovely doll!

Your doll is gorgeous! I hope your things do well at the auction! I'm a peeper too, as I drive or walk by, I figure if they didn't want me to peep, they'd close their curtains like I do! lol! I also LOVE to look at the outside of homes and their gardens. So much to see, read, and do ... so little time!

Susie said...

I have always wanted to go to an auction. Let us know what goodies you got. I liked our wreath with the antique picture on it. Very nice.
