PINK SATURDAY / Hunter Gatherer Party 11-26-2011

I truly AM dreaming of a PINK CHRISTMAS!

My dear friend Becca at Of Bluebirds and Roses
made this sweet pillow for me a number of years ago.
I love using it each year and always think of her!

The lovely Ele of A Bit of Pink Heaven
sent me this sweet piece of altered art several years ago
and I love decorating with it on my small white cabinet
that houses some of my small Santas.

on my Christmas blog below

I used a sweet graphic from Rhea at Sweet 'N Shabby Roses
as my header for my special Christmas Blog

and would love to invite you to visit me there
for more Christmas inspiration over the next few coming weeks!

Please join our dear hostess Beverly of How Sweet the Sound
for more PINK Saturday participants today.

Would love for you to visit my friend Tammy of Type A for her
Hunter/Gatherer Party, too!
You just never know what you will find there!

Blue Monday 11-21-2011

One of my two favorite little heartthrobs just turned one, so I'm sharing his birthday pics for my
Blue Monday post.

Please visit our sweet hostess Sal of Smiling Sally for more participants!

Daughter did a terrific job of decorating.
She made all the cupcakes and iced cookies, too!

Today is my precious daddy's birthday. I miss him so much.

Hope everyone is having a great start to their week and getting ready for a wonderful Thanksgiving!

Welcome to another PINK SATURDAY hosted by the sweet Beverly of How Sweet the Sound! Please stop by and tell her I said Hi! And take the time to visit some of the other Pink Saturday participants ~ you will be amazed and inspired!

Got the corner cabinet at a flea market, almost free as it was grungy, black wood, with a broken mirror. I painted it white and added a new mirror and have a sweet new piece for the bedroom corner to display fun finds on.
I love to display orphaned cups and mismatched saucers on it, along with a few of my favorites ~ cherubs and little lambs.

Hubby surprised me with the pink McCoy pottery baby shoe and the lambs figurine and the crystal clock belonged to my sweet mother-in-law.

The demitasse cup (pic #2),  rose saucer (pic #3) and the above bell are all for sale here. ($4.00 ea + shipping).  I've just got to let a few of my sweet little collections go!

I'm also sharing a few of my favorite thrift store and antique store finds for
Cindy at My Romantic Home for Show & Tell Friday
Tammy at  Type A for her fun new Hunter/Gatherer Party! Pop over and meet her and see what everyone else is sharing this week!

And if I don't see you again before next Thursday,  may you and your family have a safe and blessed Thanksgiving!

PINK SATURDAY / Hunter Gatherer Party 11-04-2011

Sharing a bit of PINK Love for PINK SATURDAY!

I do LOVE my pin money purses!

I've gathered most of these by haunting eBay! I do non-stop searches on eBay for these and do best if I'm willing to accept an item in less than perfect condition. Prices did skyrocket on these little items from the 50's after one of my all time favorite magazines, Romantic Homes, did a story that included them a few years back,  but they have once again become a bit more reasonably priced. I've paid anywhere from $15-$50 for most of mine. I've found the later at night (or earlier in the morning) that an item is listed on eBay, the better your chances of getting it for a lesser price. So I guess the early bird does truly get the worm!!

I made this cute Warholish Mickey Mouse collage for my baby grandson's 1st Birthday Party this next week. He LOVES anything Mickey!!

Please visit our dear PINK SATURDAY hostess, Beverly of How Sweet the Sound for more Pink Saturday participants!

And please check out my friend Tammy's Type A new party ~ Hunter Gatherer Party No. 1 this week here!! I'm sure participants will share some great finds, WHERE they find them, and strategies to find items,  so be sure to check this awesome new party each week!
