Pink Saturday Fun!

Hi Bloggerettes!  It's Pink Saturday and believe it or not, I am having trouble finding pink stuff!!  Yea, I know you can't believe it, but even moi, the lover of all things girlie, ruffly and pink, has her days.

Pink Saturday is hosted by Beverly, at How Sweet the Sound.  Be sure you go over and check out all the other Pink Saturday posts.

Here's a project that I am working on.  Now, keep in mind I am showing this to you in its first stages.  I just finished painting it
"ballerina pink."  Next I'll be making the bedding.  I'll show you the finished product later.
Isn't this the sweetest  little baby bassinet?
I found it at the thrift store and I couldn't resist.
It is going into my booth when it's completed and hopefully to a good home.

Another Sissie pillow I finished this morning.
The graphic is from
It's an image of love letters

One of my two bedroom chairs that I've had for over
twelve years and I still love them....

I hope everyone has a good weekend at the yard sales,
garage sales, thrifts, estate sales, flea markets, GW's
and all the others.  Be sure and show us your finds.

I LOVE your bedroom chair, Sissie! Love the fabric, the ruffled skirt, and the shape of it is great! Great find on that bassinet. It looks like it's in great shape.

Once upon a time I had a wing back chair like your bedroom chair and I sold it to a friend that loved it so I miss my sit upon chair.
Here's to a Happy Pink Saturday. As soon as I can sneak out the back door at work I'm heading to the thrift shops for goodness only knows... said...

Oh I love the little pink bedroom chair with the pink pillow. That would be so cute in my little Lily's room. And the pink bassinet, I've been looking for something like that to hold her 200 stuffed animals in. Great work Sissie. Lisa
PS kids tried to touch my Sissie pillow last night, there were some very tense moments.

Country Wings in Phoenix said...

Happy Pink Saturday Sissie...
Oh sweetie that is just the sweetest darn bassinet ever. I cannot wait to see the ruffles you add to this. I know it will be beautiful. What talents you have with a can of paint and that darn sewing machine. Mine is out of whack, and I have to get it going again, as I so adore sewing.

Your new pillow, just breathtaking. The color of the letters came out so bright and beautiful. I love it. I am always so happy to see the new things you make from your sewing machine. I would love to get inside your head for just 1 hour to see what spins when you are sewing or dreaming of a project.

Have a beautiful Saturday sweetie...Country hugs and much love...Sherry
