Pink Saturday...

Today's Pink Saturday, Thank you Beverly from How Sweet The Sound for hosting! Click on the picture on you right and it will take you to Beverly's blog for a list of all the participants, make sure you visit all of us!

My first favorite pink-thing is a bit weird but cute, we found it at a yardsale and I fell for it! I think it's from the 60's, how sweet are those bunnies?!

This is a print that I found at a thrift store in town. It's a signed sketch of a pink perfume bottle design, wish I knew where to purchase the perfume!

Yummy pink cupcake pincushion, I love making them! They're made from old sweaters that I find at yardsales and thrift shops, sometimes I even go into my booth at Teaberry and a customer had left a bag of them for me at the front desk.

Can't wait to start sewing using this pretty pink rose ribbon! I found this at an Estate sale, it came out of an old New York millinery factory.

Sweet pink velvet rose pin! My hubby and I were on a trip to Georgia, stopped in a broken-down railroad town that had only a few mom and pop stores left and this was left on the counter many, many years a ago. The owner and I got talking about "things" and of course PINK came up. To my suprise this little feeble old womans slips out from behind the counter and gave me this rose pin. She thinks it fell off of a dress back in the early 60's when custmers came after a formal dance to eat. I cherish it.

Last but not least, one of my favorite books...just happens to be a darker shade of pink!
Thorns and Thrones by B.J. Hoff
Encouraging Words for Faithful Living.

the stress of hectic living
the dissapointment of broken dreams
the sorrow o unexpected loss

the triumph of a risen Savior
the peace of a surrendered life
the reward of a faithful soul

I hope everyone enjoys looking and browsing Pink Saturday, have a lovely rest of the day!

  19. Love your PS post today. The bunnies are too cute and the cup cakes are so clever. The rose ribbon trim is so pretty. Great for so many pretty craft ideas and I bet you are just the right person to think of the perfect use for the sweet ribbon. Your story about the pin is so interesting. It is very pretty too. Love roses of any kind.
    Happy 4th and Pink Saturday.
