Pink Saturday!

Hi My Sweet Pink Loving Friends!

Well, I'm am late today in getting my post
done due to a fun trip I took yesterday with a friend.
I went with my friend across the state of Michigan to
a town call Muskegon so she could
add some flowers to family gravesides.
We had the best time visiting, sharing,
caring and just being with each other.
A good friend indeed!

So now I must reach back into my pink past and
see what I can find that is pink...

Christmas past!
These are 4 Canvas' that I have painted
and sold...
As you can tell, I did a series of...
Christmas stockings with differing themes.
I even threw in a Vicotiran Shoe...
and loads of pink flowers too!
Happy Pink!

Sharing and Creatin!

Hey thar Sweet Bloggy Friends!

Thanks for stopping by and visiting with me today.

I found 2 of the most beautiful handpainted plates
on Saturday when a sweet
friend and I visited a Large Antique Mall in
Northville, MI.
Best thing of all, I paid $4.00 total for them both!!!

I just can't resist an handpainted plate!

Then I have been tackling a looooong list of crafting projects in
varying many unfinished
ideas are now becoming a reality!
Do any of your creative peeps do this? I will
go in a see them all ready to be worked on...
and....then I leave!  Well, I am so glad that
dry spells are not permanent!

Would you like to see a few things I finally finished?

I so charmed by this sweet praying lil figurine!
but... for about a year she remained on my shelf...
I did have an idea tho.

My idea: A sweet Childs prayer I learned 50+ years ago.

Now I lay me down to sleep,
I pray the Lord my soul to keep.
If I should die before I wake,
I pray the Lord my soul to take.
That lil figurine and prayer became what you see,
that was my idea! yea!

Then  on Tuesday I shared a sweet Tea cozy that my sis gifted me
many, many years ago...
well I have a stack of
cozies waiting for me to make..
this was the first
one I tackled and I am so happy with how it turned out.

This is such a purty creamy 2 toned textured fabric that I knew
would work well with my cozy!
I then fashion a sweet rosy pin to add onto the front
Creamy Cozy Perfection!

Oh and I had so share some current Chloe
pix...she spends many hours of her day in our
family room, snoozing, purring and talking with us
on my covered coffee table.

So if you talk to this sweetie...she turns and talks to ya
until ya just have to pet her!
My lovey dovey girl!

Thanks again for stopping by!

FINAL Pictures from my Friends Cottage Apartment

Hi Sweet Bloggy Friends!

If you have been following me this past week, you will see I have been featuring a dear friend of mine who is 83 years young and her darling COTTAGE Apartment! This is my 3rd and last installment of pictures from her wonderful apartment.

I had a few pictures left of mainly vinettes that  I had taken. Again, she has such a wonderful knack with using her wonderful antiques in unique ways.  These next pictures were taken in a small 2nd bedroom and hallway. Enjoy!

I just adore this secretary/display piece!!!
This is the door to a hall closet! Dontcha just
think this is soooooo clever?
More treasures!
The wall of family pictures with many of these frames
being the originals that were used over 100 years ago!
She loves going UP and uses every space to
display treasures!

LUCKY ME!!! Look what came home with me after
my visit this time....
This frame is rounded glass and OLD!
These 2 pictures look as if someone just cut them from
a magazine and then placed them into these oval frames.
These frames are the largest oval frames I have
seen...almost 18 inches in height!
I had to repair one of them...but had so much
fun finding a place for them in my Victorian Parlor!
I'll have to get pictures soon to show you where they landed!

Last year a friend brought me a necklace she had purchased with
a pendant and had me paint a small rose on it for her.  She
loved it so much and encouraged me to paint up
some pendants and sell them. 

Well, I finally found some small oval
pendants and gave it a try...these are about
1 inch and I have placed a real SWAROVSKI crystal
on each one and covered them with glitter...
would you buy one of these @ $9.99?

I always want to keep my painting goodies
at an affordabe price so am asking
my lovely blogging friends for their advice.

I even recycled this sweet Cottage frame and
used some new acrylic paint paper and
painted a sagy green background with
my pink rose.  I married these 2 together!
This is for sale in my
etsy store!

Thanks for allowng me to share these
wonderful pictures with you!
