Pink Saturday and Sewing Room Essentials

Hi Bloggerettes and Happy Pink Saturday!  Be sure and visit Beverly at How Sweet The Sound for more pink goodness.

Don't you think that every sewing room, studio or the room where you create deserves some pink.  Mine has some, bet yours does too!
In my opinion pink is essential to your well being.

Like a really pretty vintage pin cushion, in pink of course...

 Some pink toile fabric window coverings....

 Sewing machine drawers turned ribbon and snippet containers...
I  think the sides of these are so pretty...

Vintage wooden spools are great for organizing laces and ribbons...

Pretty pink fabrics are a definite sewing room essential...

Pink ribbon is important too....

And, a nice place to flop when you need a break...

Everyone have a great weekend!  Hope you find, create, write or discover something new and wonderful!!!

I just knew your craft room would be as lovely as the rest of your house and have lots of PINK! And that bed looks like the perfect place for me to curl up while you craft and sew away! ;-D

Happy Weekend, Sissie!

Being a red head all my life I was never into pink much , but latly...
Seems like I want to put it around my house, at least my living room . who knows where it will go from there. I absolutly love those toile window curtains !I may even start wearing it next.

Theresa said...

I read once that every complexion looks beautiful in pink... so I started wearing pink, I painted our bathroom pink, but I had to change it, too much grumping from the guys over here! Your room is so beautiful, it looks so inviting. And the pincushion, be still my heart! So I bet you guessed it Sissie, I love all of your pinks! Theresa xoxo

Karen said...

Love, love, LOVE your space! And yes! I have snippets of pink here and there too. My first pink room in my entire life!!!! (Well one wall anyway.)

I love your sewing room, Sissy! The toile curtains are gorgeous! My favorite thing though are the vintage sewing machine drawers repurposed as ribbon holders! Love it!

The Polka Dot Closet said...

Yep, my sewing room is pin why I just couldn't create any other way! I would love to find some pink toile! Do you remember where you got it?


Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

I love this room, Sissie! It's just so pretty to look at. I love the drawer you use for ribbons and the spools are a great idea for the lace. I agree with you about the pink and if you recall that saying, "I'm in the pink", it probably does make you feel good!

Shelia said...

Hi Sissieness! Oh, your sewing room is gorgeous! It's so pretty how in the world could you sew and cut and get strings all over it? :)
I love those pretty toile curtains.
Be a sweetie,

What a beautiful room and I love the pink touches. Mine looks like a tornado has been through but I am in full Santa's workshop mode.

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

Your space is always beatiful!

Cozy Home Scenes said...

Your craft room looks so soft and pretty. I'm a sucker for toile in any color, but your pink is so lovely. All your displays are so nice if it were me, I'd be afraid to work in there because I'd mess the room up. My craft area always looks like a tornado has hit by the time I'm done making something!

Happy Pink Saturday!

Enchanted Rose Studio said...

Happy Pink Saturday, Sissie! What a charming and inspiring room to create! Love those little drawers! Too charming!

Have a pinkalicious weekend!


Dragonfly Treasure said...

Your room is to die for!! So lovely and femine. A great space for inspiration to take hold. I shuffle my supplies on the kitchen table then off, then back on, then to the floor, get the idea, I hope to someday (if my kiddos EVER move out...darn economy)have a room for me too.
Great idea with the bobbins! Glad I hung onto mine..will put them to work!

Ginger said...

Your sewing room is beautiful and so organized. I love your pinks placed so lovely. It looks so inviting. And I love the bed, so fluffy and comfy looking. Thanks for stopping by. I am working on opening an Etsy store, wish me luck, I am getting closer and closer. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving.

Roselle said...

The pin cushion and vingage pins are delish! I LOVE your sewing room. I want to nap there, can I? LOL

My sewing room is rather envious. Mine does not look like yours. It is fabulous. It goes without saying, pinkalicious.

Allison said...

Your pictures are always so sweet and feminine. Just lovely, Sissie! I adore that pink toile fabric. I hope you're having a lovely weekend.

Wsprsweetly Of Cottages said...

Hi Sissie..thanks for telling me you put things away and cannot find them. I do it way too much! :)
I am going to do a tiny white tree in the living room this year with pink decorations.
Your decor is just precious and my living room is slowly turning white. There is something about shades of rose and pink that are so ...satisfying to the soul. You know?
I LOVE your blog!
HOW I would love to visit your booth!
This is the next best thing!

Maggie said...

All your rooms are gorgeous, and such great ideas!

Sorry for the belated visit... I've come to think of it as "Pink Weekend"!

Happy Belated Pink Saturday!

Crystal Rose Cottage said...

Sissie...I love this room! So welcoming and pretty! I love the sewing cabinet drawers painted white and using it for storage! I also caught a glance of that pillow that is hanging on the white chair...that is darling!~Hugs, Patti

Pam said...

I love the room. So many wonderful ideas. I recently purchased sewing cabinet drawers while at our vacation home in Kentucky. I'll have to wait until we take the motorhome back this spring before I can get them to my sewing room. I too plan to display vintage laces in the drawers. I just love all you did with your sewing supplies.
