I missed joining in the FUN of Pink Saturday last week because...um...well...I forgot to tell Miss Beverly of HOW SWEET THE SOUND that I was going to take part! I hope you'll visit as many pink lovin' peeps as you can this weekend! Thank you again, Miss B, for hosting our party week after week! I always have so much fun and find many fabulous bloggers, too!
Now...are you ready for some more PINK-ME-UP? This week I have a true menagerie of goodies for you!
My first little offering is the sweet old PINK Tape Dispenser you see at the top! I found this fabulous vintage beauty at a garage sale about 5 years ago. I think it was a quarter! SCORE!
My next offering was definitely more than twenty-five cents! I use more PINK Epson INK than any other color! Gee...WONDER WHY!
I use tons and tons of buttons in my business and the PINK ones always seem to dwindle down first. I can never have enough of these wonderful old finds!
I love to drink tea, I love to display tea and I love to share tea with my customers! When I can find it wrapped in PINK...well, you know! Gotta get it!
Something else I use a whole lot of is ribbon. The stack you see above is about 1/6th of the vintage pink ribbon I've collected over the years. Ribbon is NOT created equal,. I'm not sure WHAT they call the stuff they sell at the fabric stores these days...feels like spun plastic to me! Love the silk-rayon-cotton combos from days gone by! YUM! And...if I find it in PINK it always comes home with me!
Now...if I can find aging Ombre Ribbon (or French Ribbon) even if it's new it's always a keeper. This PINK and white variegated ribbon is 2die4 (thank you again, Glenda!).
I love to paint PINK Roses and I'm excited about the new hand painted offerings that will soon be coming your way! This is an old door that hangs in my upstairs hallway. PINK ROSES RULE!
Here's another sweet estate sale find! I can't be for certain but I do believe this old PINK necklace was four bucks! I purchased it some time ago and it hangs over a little mirror in my bedroom.
I love to make image pillows using the reproduced paintings of Miss Cathrine Klein. She is my FAVORITE vintage postcard artist and her work is a true inspiration for me. I thought for years she painted with oils...just recently I discovered she was a watercolor artist! This little PINK and creamy white Pillow that showcases a bit of her artwork sits on top of my bed.
Last but not least...
While I was meandering around my home deciding what to photograph for you I stumbled upon my Miss K's faux cell-phone. Well now...you KNOW I have to include something that belongs to our sweet girl! I wonder in 50 years if this cheap little thing will be worth something? Everyone and their Momma thought KIDDLES were cheap little toys and now look what they bring!
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend! I'm working on a Lampshade Tutorial and hope to bring it to you soon!
Love to you this lovely Summer Saturday~
