Pink Saturday


Hello and welcome to Pink Saturday hosted by Beverly of How Sweet The Sound.
Above I have a pic of some Flea Market finds from this past summer. The pretty Victorian looking ones on the left I thought I would make their little baskets into a pincushion, they were probably made to hold flowers. The little girl with dog is so pretty, the detail in it is just incredible. I paid $1.00 for each one. The cute little box has a powder puff with powder still in it.


Above is a pretty little birthday planter that I purchased at the same Flea Market. I think that was $1.00 also.
When my hubby and I travel I always do needlework because I hate the tractor trailers on the roads. (they drive way to fast). I'm always loosing my scissors so when hubby was cleaning out his drawers at work he brought this little thing home for me. It grips anything that lays on it and does a great job of holding my scissors and sunglasses, only problem was that is was not pink and pretty!!! So I made this cute little pink yoyo brooch to pretty it up. I make this brooches in all colors to put on my coats and totes.


Now it's pretty!!!!!!
This is one of my favorite little tea cups with a cottage window and hollyhocks!


Thank you so much for stopping by for Pink Saturday! It was so nice to visit with you. I hope everyone had a nice Thanksgiving, ours was wonderful! I'm getting my Christmas decorations out today and hope to do a few more posts this week with the last of Thanksgiving and start on some Christmas posts.
Have a great weekend and Happy Pink Saturday!
Blessings, Shirl

Happy Pink Saturday, Shirl.

I'm busy decorating this weekend, too. I am taking little breaks for visiting Pink Saturday posts.

I love the little figurines, and putting a pincushion in their baskets is a wonderful idea.

That gripper thingie is so cool! I embroidered on our trip too and that would have come in handy! Happy Pink Saturday!

Oh! Such pretty things. I collect those Bearington bears. Do you know the name of yours? I love her blue dress.
Happy Pink Saturday!

Hah, you have one of those little dashboard things to hold your stuff also, sweetpea! I love mine. It has even held food leftovers from the restaurant and not lost anything so far. Just fantastic little doo-dad.....
Smooches,
