~FABULOUS JARS with PINK LIDS~
Happy Pink Saturday all you Pink Lovin' Peeps! Are you ready to get your pink on????
Thank you to Beverly of HOW SWEET THE SOUND
for hosting our Pink Saturday event week after week!
You ROCK, Miss B!
Now...go and visit as many of our Pink Girls as you can! You're
sure to find SOMETHING you love!
Now..see those 2die4 glass jars at the top? I snagged those little beauties at my neighborhood ROSS store earlier this week! Originally they had these silvery-gray lids and well you KNOW that wouldn't do! Instead of painting them a soft pastel pink I decided to go with a pink shade with more neutral undertones. It's the same color I painted the walls in my studio and I absolutely LOVE it! Just wish I could remember the name. Gotta hunt that one down! Wanna know the best part of discovering the jars? The largest one was only $7.99 and the smallest $4.99. I've never seen such a thing!
~NO! IT'S NOT A CROWN!~
Any guesses as to what this is? It's a fabulous ADVENT CANDLE! It was once a bright, shiny (and cheap looking) GOLD and that just had to go! Painted a soft pink it was blushed with a frothy, lighter shade of the same awesome color. A tad bit of ground glass and sparkle-dust was added for a hint of glitter.
~VINTAGE LINEN SACHET PILLOW~
My favorite kind of Sachet to make! This one is on it's way to Italy!
~VINTAGE PINK GLASS BUTTONS~
Gee...all of a sudden I'm thinking I've shown these before! Hmmm... So sorry if I did! Worth showing again!
~VINTAGE PINK BRAID~
I can't pass up old sewing notions when I find them at Estate Sales! Here are some fabulous packages of old braid...YUMMO!
~VINTAGE PINK PIPING and BIAS TAPE~
More old sewing finds! EEEEK! Be still my heart!
~CAN'T FORGET THE PINK RICK-RAC~
When I was little my Momma use to say that clothing that had rick-rac had that 'loving touch of home'. (Was that a dig, Mom?) Because of her I use to roll my eyes whenever I saw it...now I love it! :)
Now...can you even believe this?
Surely my mother would have fainted if she'd seen this! If tiny Rick-Rack made her sick just imagine what the HUGE Ric-Rack above would have done.
~CHIC and PINK with a PINK ROSE~
I have a weakness for jars. Big, little, short, fat, skinny, etc....love them all! Pair it up with a charming little spoon and you're good to go :)!
~SWEET VINTAGE GROSGRAIN RIBBON~
This lovely old ribbon was found at a local tag sale this past summer. I purchase 20 packages of it for five cents each. The back says 1974. That means it's 36 years old. You'd think in that amount of time the person who originally purchased it could have found SOMETHING to do with it!
Now...last but not least...
~PINK PAINTED BOX~
Any guess what this once was??? A year ago I found it at an estate sale with a vintage FREE Sewing Machine (no, not Free as in it cost no money, but FREE as in the FREE Sewing Machine Company from the late 1800's). Inside the old metal box I found attachments for the machine. I sold all the attachments on eBay for some super big bucks, but kept the box. My sweet friend, Miss M, in Cali, bought it earlier this week!
Thanks for stopping by again today to see my PINKS for the WEEK! This is my 15th time to participate in PINK SATURDAY and it's always so much fun!
~THANK YOU AGAIN, BEVERLY~
I'm off to do some estate sale shopping today! Been WAY TOOO LONG since I've been out junkin!
Blessings for a lovey day!
Love to you...
