~ Pink & White Eye Candy ~

After my Red White & Blue posts, I decided it was time to get back to my basics ~ some of my favorite pink & white eye candy for you!

I love this miniature chocolate server. It reminds me of the old salesman samples of small furniture they used to carry around door-to-door trying to get you to place an order for a full-sized version! I have it filled with my pink hand vase, a pink pin money purse, & I loaded the top with an eyelet hanky, a ROSES demitasse cup & saucer, & a sherbert glass full of pink strawberry sachets with lots of lace & sequins & pearls on them!

I just love using antique mirrors in unusual ways ~ they are so perfect for use as plateau mirrors for tablescapes. I sell antique & Venetian Glass mirrors all the time on eBay (check out my auctions on eBay under the seller name AngelicAccents), & am lucky to be able to stash a few away for myself!! Below I have used a pretty shaped one with one of my cut glass cherub compotes filled with my pal & PRH sister, Jen's handpainted Roses Christmas ornaments. I leave these out year-round! Visit her at her blog jennifer's petal palace.

I love using the ROSES covered casserole in an unexpected place ~ not the dining room, but in our bedroom. If you lifted the lid, you'd find my stash of old prisms, just waiting to be added to my next chandelier!

The handpainted ROSES plate was a steal at an estate sale ~ only $5.00!! I just love its scalloped gold rim.And this next pic is for my friend & PRH sister, Amy at bunnyrosecottage, who shares my love of bunnies. I love cloches & this one keeps some of my favorite little bunnies dust-free!

Hope you are all having a wonderful summer. We have actually had sunshine today!! Yippee!!!

Hi Steph!

Oh I love that sweet chocolate server... I have never seen one before I don't think. I love your use of mirrors... you know when I am out and about and I see pretty mirrors I always think of you. I used to have this fear of using too many mirrors in my house but you have inspired me to not worry about it so much and do what I love!

I just bought a huge old white one... very shabby... it is going to go above my couch I think. Still deciding on that one. When I do it I will post some pics for you!

OH and that plate!! I LOVE the roses on that one!
