Pretty Pinks for Pink Saturday...

A HUGE shout-out to Beverly at How Sweet The Sound for hosting such a FUN event every Saturday. Please stop by her blog and visit everyone's lovely pinks on the list!

If you need to know ANYTHING about New Jersey, it is common knowledge that Cape MAy IS THE CAPITAL of Victorian Mansions...I mean the row by row, ornate, scrolly porch, stain glass bliss kind! Can you take a guess which one is my favorite???...take a peek... How sweet is this sign, LOVE the pink vintage bike...
Isn't she a lovely pink vision, just wish the powerlines weren't there! Oh my, I can picture myself reading on that porch!

Ok, back to REALITY, ( :

A project that I did this old dresser (I mean old)...what to do with that stinking bottom drawer that was warped beyond repair, now I know why it was sitting on top of the dresser when I found it, but it was FREE! Hmmmm, think...I added a platforn where the bottom drawer use to be, painted her white and added a few baskets and fancy box and WALLLAHH...
Here are a few other of my favorite pink projects that I hope you will enjoy...A wonderful yardsale find, upholstered with my all time favorite barkcloth, (yep, I do all of my own upholstery work, strip to bear bones, re-spring and cover!) yummy pink roses!
I found this lovely sweety in the GARBAGE, it was a HOT MESS! Look at her now...

Last but not least, can't forget the cheapy PINK plastic swirly bowls that I grabbed up at the grocery store for $1.00 each...amazing what cheap plastic can do to a person when colored pink, but I love them! ( :
Have a Happy Pink saturday, and remember...
