YIP, YIP,'s time for the prettiest day of the week....Pink Saturday!

Hi lovely blogerettes!  It's time again for the best part of the week and that is, Pink Saturday hosted by the sweet, Beverly at How Sweet The Sound.  Be sure and visit there to see all the lovely Pink Saturday posts.

I'm not sure if this is vintage or not, maybe just a vintage inspired, but whatever it is, it's very unique and pretty.  Don't you think?

How long has it been since you have seen something made with dotted swiss fabric?  Check out this very girly and very
vintage pink apron.

Let's pretend these are pink chicks....

Ok, it didn't work, did it?  How about this for pink?

Happy Pink Saturday!!!

Sissie ...the top picture of the wire piece with tubes ..I have about 5 of them ..Same Thing ..I got them last year at Home Goods ..and they are flower Frogs. Fill the tubes with water then arrange a beautiful bouquet . Of course it could be used for other things as well but that's it's original use. Of all things I have mine out on my desk here and filled with my paper roses that I am making to take to my show this coming week and it looks stunning ...I took pictures the other day I will have to post it on my blog .

Blessings ..Sara of Sweet Magnolias Farm

I thought the first picture was a wine bottle holder, at least the form is. But I can see now that it would be stunning with flowers in each vase!!

Have a wonderful weekend, SIssie!! :-i

I love those flower frogs! Princess House use to carry a trumpet vase that had a frog in it to arrange flowers. I think those flower arrangers are terrific otherwise I would be helpless putting flowers in an arrangement! Happy Pink Saturday!

Cute post Sissie!

Love the little pink chicks.
Thanks for coming by.
I am unable to take my own advice either. Just cannot resist buying 'treasures' to craft with either. =)

The bud holder could also be a shot holder....not that I would know anything about stuff like that...but it would definitely make a statement.

And I do love the little yellow chicks!!!

Tracie said...

I love that flower holder stand thing! It is awesome! Those little chicks have got me wanting spring!

Debbie@Debbie-Dabble said...

I believe it is a type of epergne. These were Victorian flower vases. I think it is a modern take on one! Very pretty!

CollectIn Texas Gal said...

Very cool flower vase and arrangement! And of course I do love the pink organza apron! Your a magician...turning those yellow chicks into PINK ones! Course your blog is magical, too! Happy Pink Saturday!

Lululiz said...

The pink apron is fabulous, as are the pink chicks. Did you use a pink magic wand??

Linda said...

Pink dotted that brings back some great childhood memories! I think my mom bought it by the bolt:)


Debra@Common Ground said...

wow, pink dotted swiss, brings back memories of girlhood. The wired flower holder is wondeful, so many flowers to experiment with. And your chicks, love'em. I used to fix them on cupcakes for my girls and I just bought some the other day. How could you help but smile?

Sandi@ Rose Chintz Cottage said...

What a lovely post, Sissie! I've seen those flower holders but not for a while. Love the little pink chicks! Happy Pink Saturday, sweet friend. Hope you have a fabulous pink weekend.


Country Wings in Phoenix said...

Good Morning Sweet Sissie...
Oh sweetie I adore the floral holder that you have found. How delightful is that. You can have so many assorted flowers in one place. Arranged in heights. How delightful that is. I adore it. I see it has a gay Paris sign on it also. LOVE it.

Now those little yellow chickies....Who did they think they could fool. Lovem. I was just laughing my head off, as I just bought two little boxes myself. They are both on the table as I thought they would be delightful to use on some of my spoons. So cute. Lovem. Great minds think alike.

That dotted swiss apron is precious. Absolutely precious. You know Moma used to make our Easter dresses out of dotted swiss. You gave me a memory. Thank you sweetie.

I adored this post. As always you touch my heart in some magical way. Country hugs sweetie and so much love...Sherry
