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
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!!
