Welcome to Pink Saturday at Sissie's Shabby Cottage

Hi Bloggerettes!  It's time for another wonderful Pink Saturday hosted by Beverly at How Sweet The Sound.  So let's go get some

Welcome to Sissie's Shabby Cottage.  See the urns with pink flowers.
I know, they aren't showing up very well.  Of course it's so hot here that they are struggling to stay alive.

I'm so excited to tell you about the wonderful giveaway that I won at
I was thinking that Pink Saturday would be the best time
to show off my pink pretties.
Lynn makes the most beautiful pillows, pin cushions and embellished bottles and more!
She is an amazingly talented seamstress and artist.

She is extra sweet and if you haven't met her be sure and stop by her blog. You won't be dissappointed.
When I opened the box and saw the contents, the beauty
took my breath away.  Just look at this loveliness.

Just look at the lovely little Victorian girl surrounded by sumputous pink lace fabric and embellished with roses, ribbon, glitter and bling.
Just look at the sweet pin cushion.

See all the sweet the little key

 So even included something for a future burlap pillow creation.
How sweet is that?
 These lovely pinks are so romantic and girlie,
afterall, I am a very girlie girl !
 I love the sachet and the pin cushion.  And, I very much appreciate the extra sweet gift.  It will be used for a special project.

I can just see this sweet image with the vintage lace and buttons that she sent me sewn onto this white ruffled pillow.
It's going to look beautiful.

Thank you Lynn, I love everything so much!

Okay Bloggerettes, hop on over to Beverly's at How Sweet The Sound

Very pretty, Sissie! I can just see the pink of your flowers. I know the humid days just suck the life out of these poor things. I always make sure to water my pots extra when it is supposed to be humid hoping that will help. Love your sachet pillow and pincushion! They are both so pretty!
