Oh So Pretty & PINK!

When I look around my home, it is not gushing with PINK as you might be led to believe, but rather, it is tastefully and strategically sprinkled with PINK to add sweet charm in all the right spots. There are so many pretty little things I want to show you all at once, but then I wouldn't be able to participate in PINK Saturday anymore, having exhausted all my show pieces! (Well that might not be true since I continue to regularly buy PINK treasures to add to our 'Home Sweet Home').

So, just for today, I'll give you just a little peek at some of my PINK. These precious prints are so darling to me. I bought them at an ebay store called 'Taylor & Ronnie's Chic Boutique' for only 1.50 (bidding starts usually at .99). After buying the first two, I HAD to buy more. The prints are 4 1/2 x 7 and mounted attached with a ribbon. I just adore them and the glitter on them is just perfect. I have a couple hanging in my sweet kitchen and the other two in the 'Fu-fu Princess' room' aka --girl's room.

My other share is something special my Mom handmade for me when I had my first Sweetie Princess Cupcake (the first girl). My Mom even used little pearls in the stitching.

And last and still PINK & pretty is the PINK roses blooming in my garden along my picket fence. The rose is called 'Social Climber' and has a spicy fragrance. Mmmm.

I was just reading about those very roses last night in my Jackson & Perkins catalog! They're just beautiful! Prayers to your dad and happy thoughts to you during your pregnancy. Bless you for homeschooling. We did it too back when it wasn't so common. People thought we were crazy!

I am so glad you stopped by my blog so I could find you!! Your blogs is a delight thru and thru!! Makes me all cheery and smiley!! Love your pretty pink Saturday and the rose is to die for!! I have 2 knock-out rose bushes, but nothing like yours!!

Oh and of course I love your little wedding birdies!! Too cute!

Have a lovely Sunday, and please know that I will pray for your Dad. I lost both parents 4 1/2 years ago so I know how difficult it can be.

Enjoyed browsing through your sweet pink items. Especially loved the pink roses. Nothing like a rose to brighten your day!!

Lorri said...

So pretty. my home is not filled with pinkness either, but just enough to satify me and not so over the top to make hubby feel uncomfortable.

Your prints are wonderful--and wonderfully priced!!

What a wonderful treasure your mom created for you in honor of your first little girl!

You are so lucky to have such beautiful flowers blooming right now! We are having temps in the teens and 20s in our part of MO!! Not great for roses!

Happy Pink Sat! Dana

The rose pictures are so Victorian looking and so pretty!. Pink can be bold or soft, I like that you "sprinkle" your pink around your home, I think its the softness of pink that I love.
Have a wonderful day,
Elizabeth

I love your prints, and I especially love the size. Just perfect for almost any space.

It must be wonderful having your own little princesses.
