A Touch of Pink

Hi Bloggerettes!!! It's Pink Saturday again hosted by the very nice Beverly at How Sweet The Sound.  Be sure and check out the pink posts for some more pink goodies.

This is a touch of pink on the bench in my entryway.
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend and find lots of good stuff at the yard sales and thrift stores!
Remember....the early bird gets the worm!

Adore the contrast of the pink with the white.....very striking. As far as hanging the mirrors......the handle is usually attached at the base of the mirror so you can slip the ribbon up in under there and tie your double knot for hanging.....if it is one solid piece of metal, just use a plate hanger like you use on platters and such. You might have to bend the prongs a little to accommodate the mirror,but it will work for you....good luck and let me know how it works for you :o)

As always Sissie, your pinks and your pillows are gorgeous. I still love the white one with ruffles on your sidebar, but each pillow you do is better than the last. Happy Pinks and have a fantastic weekend.
