Hello and welcome to another Pink Saturday hosted by Beverly of How Sweet the Sound. Thank you Beverly for hosting this fun event.

Another hot week here in WV. I've been busy getting packed up for our beach vacation. Were going to Lewes, Delaware. Can't wait to put my feet in the sand!

This week I stopped at an antique mall after my Dr. appointment and got this cute little planter that I will make into a pincushion.

Isn't she just the sweetest? I could not resist buying her. I'm gonna bling her up a bit, where the metalic gold is I think I will put some gold glitter.

Next I picked up this cute little vintage Avon kitten pomander. It really has a pleasent scent. I thought the box was as cute as the pomander.

I also picked up these two little perfume bottle girls from Avon. Perfume still in the bottle and they smell wonderful. I love the older scents from Avon much better than the new ones. Alot of the new fragrances today are too Tutti Fruttie for me.

I thought this one was so sweet!

I went to a card making party this week and made the four cards below. The victorian screen door was a request from me, I think she did a wonderful job in designing this card.

I picked this pretty picture up from a thrift store for twenty five cents. I love the print, they are holding a birds nest as you can see in the close up. This print is from Italy. Love it!

Thank you so much for stopping by, it was great to visit with you. I will be posting from the road for the next two weeks. I'll try and get some pink pics on my travels.

Hugs, Shirl

Hi Shirl,
Oh I love your little girly planter that you will make into a pin cushion. How sweet will that be? You sure found some great treasures. Love the perfume bottles. Would love to see those return for us romantic decorators.
The cards are darling. I just love the old screen door.
The oval print from Italy is lovely and I have the same series but 3 different prints. I love yours. I painted my frames ivory and they are in my laundry room as an accent when I redecorated there.

Hope you have a fabulous time at the beach and really relax. Congrats on 40 years together with you sweet hubby. Many more wonderful years to you with God's blessings. I will be thinking of you as we celebrate 38years.
Hope you are feeling better these days too.
Thank you for stopping by and your anniversary wishes. Good Luck in my giveaway.
Safe travels and enjoy my friend.
Love to you,
Celestina Marie
