In the Pink!

Hi Bloggerettes!  It's time again for Pink Saturday hosted by Beverly at How Sweet The Sound.  Be sure and go there and check out all the delicious pinkness going on today.

Found these well loved ballet shoes and decided they needed to be
a little pinker.  So out came the pink spray paint (pink ballerina, of course), some ribbon and rhinestones and even a crystal.

I think they would look great hanging over the door to a little girl's room or over a mirror.
I haven't shown you my laundry room have I?  Well here is a little peek at some laundry room pinkness...

For some reason cleaning up messes with a pink dust broom
just makes it easier and kinda fun, well sorta.

While I'm at it I might as well show you my bathroom
chandelier.  It needs dusted so I tried to creatively and artistically
erase the cobwebs!

You can see just a hint of the pink flowers hanging on the wall,
so this counts as Pink Saturday, right?

Happy Pink Saturday everybody.  Now get out there and create something lovely.

By the way I would like to welcome my many new followers.  I am honored that you have chosen my blog to follow and I thank you for the vote of confidence. 
And, a big I love you to all my bloggy friends.
You are the best!

Annesphamily said...

Pretty pinks. I love those ballet slippers. I knew I should have kept my girls from years gone buy! HPS! Anne

Sissie, The little pink ballet slippers are adorable. My mom saved my first ballet shoes and the program from my first recital. The little shoes were painted red to match my costume. I was three years old and I continued to take ballet for 15 years! I now have these two things framed in a shadow box that hangs in our bedroom.

You are the only person I know that has a pink dustpan! Very cute. Have a great weekend.
xoxo, Sherry

trash talk said...

Nobody does pink as well as you...nobody! I am officially declaring Pink to be your new middle name! Sissie Pink...sounds like a great name for a paint color too! You need to suggest that to Benjamin Moore!

Sissie, Happy PS! The ballerina shoes are so cute-I love your ideas for them, and your chandy is just beautiful-enjoy!

Hi Sissie,
Beautiful pinks. Have a happy day!

Elaine said...

I also happen to pink up a pair of pink slippers with a bit of lace on them.. I'd say your laundry room is in the pink.

Kathysue said...

I'm stuck on your laundry soap container! How cool is it that you found one with pink letters....or maybe you created it....even cooler!

I would love to hang out with you at home and Miss Minnie's. Love it. Wish I could travel. I'd show up on your doorstep! :)

You always have the best posts and this one is no exception. LOOOOOVE the pink ballerina slippers with the bling on them. And your previous post, I have a table exactly like that except my table leaves are round. Love it. Have a great weekend.

Nancy said...

Love the slippers! HPS!!!

Debbie said...

Such pretty pink slippers! You do "pink" like nobody else, Sissie!

Jacqueline said...

You have inspired me to go buy a can of soft pink paint. The pretty pink that we used for our hankies in Queens in Training! I have a wee bathroom that is filled with little poodles...I think their bathroom needs to be pink.
Love sent from me to you.

Jacalyn @ said...

Love the ballet shoes! I never would have thought to spray paint them!

Happy PS,

Allison said...

Love your pink ballet slippers! Just yesterday I decorated a pair of ballet slippers and hung them on the bed post in out guest bedroom. How clever to spray paint them a nice fresh pink. You are so creative, Sissie! Your chandelier is gorgeous, too.

Nancy said...

I love your chandy! It's really pretty. Hope you have a great weekend!


Grace said...

I always enjoy reading your blog and today I find such peace and not an ounce of stress and anxiety. All the wonderful Sept 11 memorials and tributes were a little too overwhelming. Happy Pink Saturday and have a great weekend. Grace xoxo

Debby said...

Hi Sissie,
What a beautiful pink post you have created for us, love it.

Ceekay- Thinkin of Home said...

Your chandie is so cute....I love it!

Something Nice and Pretty said...

I love them, and you decorated them so adorable, love all the bling on them.

Love the laundry room too, can't wait to see pictures of it!

I just got back from Target and bought more simply shabby chic curtains for the guest room and master, I could spend all day in there:)


~~Carol~~ said...

I think I might actually enjoy cleaning up if I had a pink dust broom! And I would definitely enjoy doing laundry if my laundry area looked like yours. There's just not much you can do though if your washer and dryer are in the spidery basement!
Happy Pink Saturday!

CHERI said...

My granddaughter is a pink-kinda-gal, but me not so much. However, your pink pretties always appeal to me. Love the ballerine slippers!

LuLu Kellogg said...

Ohhhhhhhhh so lovely....especially the chandie!

Sherrie said...

I don't think that you could ever run out of pink lovelies to show. I am never disappointed. Thank you.

Grandma Yellow Hair said...

Your pink pretties are just that very pretty.
Especially the shoes.
Your drop leaf table turned out so nice. Wish I could get busy like you and accomplish something.
