Pink Saturday

Hi Bloggerettes!  It's Saturday and you know what that means....yep, it's Pink Saturday hosted by the very famous Beverly of How Sweet the Sound.  Be sure you go over and visit all the other Pinkelicious Posts.

I'm telling ya, I am runnin outta pink!  I picked up this lovely pot of pink tulips and they are so lovely.....
Howzabout these lovely botanical prints taken from a
vintage flower book....

Wouldn't these be pretty framed in old shabby frames or just hung on some clothesline cord and strung across the wall!!

I found this metal tray at Habitat Resale and it was soooooo ugly.
So, I painted it white and added a floral image.  I really love the scalloped edges and the handles.
I love the beautiful tags that are created by wonderful etsy shop artists and I am accumulating a stash.  They are too pretty to hide
so when I saw this wooden stand for $1.00, I grabbed it up.  And, it
became the perfect display board for my tags.  Don't you think?
I love this lamp and I love even more than it only cost $2.00 at the thrift store.  (Score!!!) It's perfect for my sewing room.
Alright my sweet, wonderful friends that I love and adore....
go out this weekend and find some good stuff and then blog about it!
Happy Hunting

For someone running out of pink, you still had plenty to share! I love the etsy tags on the display stand, but my fave pink is the vase of tulips!

Sissie, yesterday I finally got the furniture in my bedroom arranged and today's task is to hang pictures in there. Leaning up against the wall are four matted and framed P.J. Redoute' prints. Yes, they do look pretty framed!

I think you still have fabulous pinks to share!! The botanical prints are beautiful and I think they would be lovely framed in shabby frames. I love the rack you found for your tags and cards, that was a perfect solution.

I think you've done pretty well for someone who is running out of pink, Sissie! I love the tags, too. Too much I think, because I don't know that I can use them on anything! Great way to keep them out to enjoy them. Love that scalloped dish and your tulips are gorgeous!

Almost out of pinks? It looks great. Say, is that floral image in that tray an image from Stampin' Up? It reminds me of one, it's the set that has the bee hive in it, I think? Anyway, either way, good and cute idea! As are the other things! Happy Pink Saturday! Jenn

Oooo Sissie,
Everything is so sweet and pretty. I always enjoy visiting here and seeing all your gorgeous things. Yesterday,whilst at the thrift store..I came across a wooden something???, I'm not sure what it's purpose had been, but your tags would have looked gorgeous set and layered on the different little shelves.It only cost a dollar..and would have been perfect for your tag collection. I love those pretty tags..I keep thinking I will make some..just haven't gotten to it yet.
Happy Pinks and Happy Mothers Day..may it be filled with love and blessings..
