Random Snippets of Pink

Hi Bloggerettes!  I had to work a little harder this week to come up with some pinkness.  I think I have shown you everything and I sure don't want to repeat myself and bore you to tears. 
My Pink Saturday post is pretty random but don't just stop here.
Our gracious host, Beverly at How Sweet The Sound, has lots of pink posts lined up for your viewing.  Be sure to stop by.

Put together this little vingette with another great Hammered Aluminum tray; lavender from my garden; vintage doilie dyed pink; vintage teacup; a pink rosette made by moi and several bars of delicious Asian cherry pink soaps.

A little wooden tool box painted pink and now holding all my ribbons and it!

Look at this fabulous glass bottle shaped like the Eiffel Tower.
Found it at GW's.  Added a Paris tag from "Creations by Minda Etsy Shop," a cork and
et voila!

I'm off to see the other Pink Saturday pretties and hopefully to bed early. Had to post it Friday cause gotta get up and hit the yard sales.
Can't wait to see what you find.




So mother has two old paris tower perfume bottles...and I adore them...

lovely pinks, sissie! thanks for sharing...and you could never bore, darling! N E V E R...

I love how you keep all of your ribbon organized by color. You sound like me...

Love the Eiffel Tower bottle. What a great treasure!!


Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

Love your pinkiness, Sissie! That Eiffel Tower bottle was quite the find at GW! You dressed it up great. Now you just need some pink bubblebath in there! I'm linking up to Beverly for the first time this week, but I don't have as many things. Although, I did just realize this evening that my cherry tree has pink blossoms, so maybe one more picture to add!

I am saving a whole room for you in Jelly Bean Castle to decorate. I'm sure you have jars of pink jelly beans and sugar coated pillows! Your world is so enchanting. I looked back to the past weeks posts and wanted to just fly away to your house. I think you will like my post today since you like mysteries but I assure you no gnome will be murdered. Hey, I like a slot machine experience too! Do you want to come to Washington and play Fairy Fortune with me someday? Your beautiful and fun, rolled into one!
