PINK SATURDAY ~ The Big PINK Mystery Reveal






Good Pink Morning to ya!

Welcome once again to
my PINK Satrday post...
and before I get going, be sure
to hop on over to our wonderful hostess
Beverly to visit other
PINK lovers just like you!

I have WINNER!!!

SHERRY from Alabama!!!!
for my PINK MYSTERY Giveaway!
CONGRATULATIONS!!!
Thanks everyone this was fun!

Alas, life as a mom of a Senior
in High School is
never dull, never my own time
and can be very tiring. I thought
you might love to see her and her
3 friends that went together with
dates...

My girl and her date...
Aren't they all just gorgeous!

Last night was my DD's Senior
Prom...and all the hoopla that
goes with it.  And my girl
is one to relish each and every moment of
it all...she asked after all the
festivities to invite friends over
for and after, after party...so momma
and dad didn't get to sleep til way after 3ish..
and this girl NEEDS her beauty sleep
and I am not functioning yet.

Also, I'd love to share some PINK
goodies I worked on this week.


The first one is a sweet lil vintage
evening out purse I picked up a while
ago at while treasure hunting. 

It was covered in lace and soooo pretty!
 I always had in mind to decorate the front but
for some reason could not wrap
my lil brain around what to do...
then on Thursday I just did it!!!
It's covered in some very pretty
paper roses that Love to use!
am so happy I did...
this lil beauty is staying with me and my
purse collection..see I already hung it with
the others.

The next beauty is NOT an original
thought from me but an I did an original
twist on it.  Its a Wreath...
I must admit credit to a sweet lil shoppe my
momma and I visit when I come to visit
her in Buckley, WA. Many years ago I
saw something very similar and LOVED
the idea...

I came home and made one up for me
to hang in my family room...but
had tucked the idea away for SOMEDAY
 doing one up in shabby
colors to offer for sale.

Finally, I worked one up this week  in pinks and
Ohhhhh I am just tickled with how well
this turned out.
Shabby, sweet, rosy,
pink with a touch
of vintage from an ole
broken plate that could
have been a castoff, but no way
that pretty plate was gonna end up
in the trash...
a trash to treasure 
makeover for sure!!!.


Can you guess what the frame is?

Its an 11x14 old wood Picture frame...
so pull out an old frame and
do your stuff...
I am always so geeked when I can
use things I have
in new ways!
This unique cutie will be offered up
in my etsy store.

Thanks for stopping by!
Happy PINK!

The girls looked so nice! Prom in Independence, OH was last night also. Love all your pinks! Have a great day.

Sherry from Alabama said...

I am so excited to win! I have emailed you my address. Guess what? I have a senior this year too. My youngest son, Tayor, is graduating May 29. I have homeschooled him K-12. I know what you mean about your life not being your own when you have a senior. He has kept me on the road this whole school year what with clubs, church bands, and all the other activities.

Sherry @ A Happy Valentine
