PINK SATURDAY ~ YELLOW & PINK IN MY FOYER


Hello and welcome to Pink Saturday hosted by our sweet Beverly of How Sweet the Sound. If you visit her you can get a list of all the other participants.

Above I have some pink cuteness from a new Vintage clipart CD that I found on ebay.

Below I have two pretty thrift store lamps that I paid a quarter each for. Great buy! My husband rewired them for me.


I found new pretty lampshades for them and I will post them again soon.
Next I'd like to show you my foyer from earlier this spring. It's done it yellow but it does have touches of pink so I thought you would enjoy seeing it.

Please click on the pic to get a good look at all the pretties!



My sister bought me this pretty teapot when she was on a buying trip to England.
A little spring cross stitched pillow.

Holly Hobbie in yellow!



A little pillow I made from a pretty print fabric that I bought on ebay many years ago.

A little banner that I made from a 1970's calendar. I've always bought pretty calendars and kept them through the years, now with the altered art crafting I'm using them. I knew I kept them for a reason. LOL
A pretty print with touches of yellow.

Thank you so much for stopping by, it was so nice to visit with you. Have a wonderful weekend! Shirl

Oh Shirl, I love all of the beautiful things. The teapot and hobnobbed shoe are just beautiful. I think the thing I loved most of all is the pink handles on the dresser. They are so gorgeous. When I enlarged the pic and I got a look at those nobs. That was it for me. Loved it. Beautiful post. Happy Pink Saturday. Country Hugs, Shery

You have so many pretty things. I love the yellow and pink together. I especially love the fabric draped on the chair. I'm glad I enlarged the photo, I hadn't noticed the wonderful pink handles on the dresser.

I know I sound like a broken record but it's raining and cold again this weekend in Michigan. Summer, sadly, may never make it north so ♥Pink Saturday♥ is one of the bright spots in my day! Thanks so much for participating this week and giving me a little lift out of the clouds☺

Nikki via The Scarlett Rose Garden said...

Hello Shirl!
Your yellow and pink vignette is gorgeous! Love the sliced lemons in the little shoe~

Looks like you had a lovely seaside vacation. So glad your hollyhocks were showing off when you got home. The garden is wonderful. I had my first hollys this year, and would like to plant some glads as well.

Darling little blue ticking pillow!

Enjoyed seeing your bedroom and the framed treasures above your closet. Beautiful.

Queenie said...

Hey Shirl!
Your foyer is so precious...every little detail is beautiful!
Nikki from the Rose Scarlett Garden gave me your blog address, and told me about your foyer and pretty bold green chair in this post. I am so glad I stopped by here. Thanks for sharing your lovely style!
Big Hugs,
Queenie
