Hi Bloggerettes!  It's Pink Saturday and our lovely host, Beverly, How Sweet the Sound, would love for you to stop by and check out
all the Pink Saturday posts.

Some of you might remember the pretty lacy prom dress that I found at a thrift store.  I decided, for now, not to cut it up, so here's where it is for now.  Who knows where it will be next month or even next week.

I put together a floral arrangement with silk flowers in a silver ice bucket for my diningroom table.  You know, that room that no one
ever uses!
Couldn't pass up this pretty doilie....

Pink flowers are bloomin...
A sweet little French image pillow.  The image came
Okay, get on over to Beverly's and get your Pinkness on!
Be sure to visit someone new and share the love.

Happy Pink Saturday Sissie Sweetie...
I love your pink shares today. The dress is exquisite. I am thrilled you decided not to cut it up. It does look gorgeous hanging at the head of the bed. Perfect to the letter "T". Love it.

Your arrangement in the ice bucket is so pretty. Sure does make a gal want to stop and visit for awhile. Tea maybe? For two? Possibly? I love it sweetie. So beautiful.

The pillow ofcourse is my favorite. You know me and pillows. A bed can never have to many pillows if you ask me. The post mark just sets it off.

Thank you for sharing sweetie. My cold is not a cold, I went to the Dr. on Wednesday and I have pneumonia. My lower right lung that I thought was a pulled muscle is where the pneumonia is. I have been running a high fever and crackling with my asthma. Marydon was so worth it. Every cough is worth it. I would do it again in a heart beat.

Have a beautiful pink Saturday filled with much love and happiness. Happy May Day too.

Country hugs and so much love...Sherry said...

Gosh girl, I can't keep up with your posts. You have so much energy. How do you post everyday & create so much beauty in your home? Remember 'When Harry Met Sally'? I want what she's having?? Your gifts from Lulu & Dorthe are wonderful. I love Dorthe so much too. I will look up Lulu, love that necklace & it's soooo Sissie! Lisa
PS Saw your posting my guest bath again. I'll be taking a sachet when I checkout, thank you!

Shelia said...

Hi Sissie! Oh, honey, there ain't nuttin' you do that's shabby! Your dining room is so beautiful and I love all the wonderful arts you create.
Blessed Pinkness.

Oh my your dinning room is pretty, and I love the prom dress, it would be very hard to cut into it for sure. There will come that special project though that will change all that. Happy PS.

Shellbelle said...

Hi Sissie, thanks for stopping my the Tiki Hut to see my new digs. It is so nice to be back with my blogging friends, I missed all y'all so much!

I'm in the midst of trying to get everything to fit in my new space and make it work together. I'm going for the shabby chic beachy style, mixing my roses and shells. I know I'll find a LOT of inspiration here! Everything is so lovely.

Hugs and a big thanks!

Sandy said...

It is such a gloomy, dreary day here. I decided to take a little "vacation" and search the web. Your wonderful blog helped chase away the blahs.

Jacqueline said...

I figured out why I can't come over here and visit about gives me a heart attack looking at all your pretty goodies. I might love cute, but there is a girl with a curl inside me that loves beautiful things.
My home right now is Tuscan. I know many may think it's a red hot lollipop type of a cottage but it's more serious than that. I'm getting ready to lighten the load however and you are inspiring me to go back to pink and the softness that you do so well.
Love sent to you on this Sunday morning...I'm celebrating a free day...just to be me.

Leann said...

Hi Sissie

Love all your pretty pale pink today. It just made me smile. The bedroom looks so dreamy with the gown hung on the door.

Enjoy your weekend!

T's Daily Treasures said...

I love all your pretty creations in the previous post. How did you get the bird image onto the placemat? That flower arrangement certainly looks real enough. It's beautiful! Hope you are having a wonderful day! :) Tammy

I'm glad you haven't cut up the dress...I know you'd probably make something wonderful from it, but it's just gorgeous as is...and I love it above your bed like that!
