Pretty Pinks for Pink Saturday....

This little chest of drawers was an ugly little thing.  All brown and dirty and needing some serious love.  I painted it a color called sour dough and a mocha glaze.  Now she stands proudly in my booth waiting for a new home....

I placed a little ballerina display on the top.  Furry pink hooded jacket, pretty pink tutu, little lamb totebag, ballet slippers and paper dolls.


And the pink brings me to the best part.  It's Pink Saturday at How Sweet The Sound.  Head on over there for some pretty pink stuff and leave some bloggy love.

Sissie, once again you have done a beautiful job of creating something really nice from something that some of us would not be able to see the potential therein. Love it!
