Pink Pink Saturday Pink


Welcome to Pink Saturday hosted by Beverly at How Sweet The Sound. Click on the link to see what other pinkies are posted! http://howsweetthesound.typepad.com/my_weblog/

My dad built this jelly cabinet and my mom painted it over twenty years ago. I just love it, especially because both my parents made it. It now holds most of my teatime items.
I found this lovely picture at a thrift store and i fell in love with it as soon as I saw it. My mom use to love ducks and had a picture up on the wall that looked very similiar. I just think there is something so innocent about this picture! It will eventually go in my sewing studio on the pink wall!

Here is my latest pin cushion. I found two vintage Avon thimbles and thought they would look so pretty on a pin cushion. I also sewed on bullion roses which look just like the roses on the lovely ladies hat! ~SOLD

And...of course I had to put a picture of my lil' girls wearing pink! How cute they look wearing their girly bling. Hope you enjoyed yourself while you took a moment to read my pink post. Have a wonderfully pinkalicious day!!!
hugs, Ellen
