YAY!!! Pink Saturday!!


Hello, and welcome to another lovely Pink Saturday. Hope you all had fun since last week. I can't wait to show you the project I've been working on...
For my second Pink Saturday post I want to show you this pink ice bucket. I was procrastinating a bit even though I meant to finish it a while ago. Then I had to wait for the pretty knob to arrive to put on top. It is finally finished though.
I painted it in the palest of pale pinks. I love this soft romantic color. It was a dark brown before the re~do. I think I have a before photo on another post somewhere I will try to find it for you.
I also added the lovely little drops on each side. I think they add a nice bit of cottage charm to the piece. I think I may still shabby it up a little, then I will be adding it to my shop. Don't forget the Grand Opening of my shop is going to be on September 26th. I will be hosting a fun giveaway that day too, so make sure you come back to visit.
For my new blog introduction this week I am really happy to show you Down To Earth. This wonderful woman from Australia (Rhonda) is amazing, and so is her blog. She blogs, has a forum, has posts teaching canning, cooking, time management, and organic gardening to name just a few of her talents. She also has chickens...so you know I love her. Please check out her blog...it is awesome!!!
Now I'm off to read as many of your Pink Saturday posts as I can!
HAPPY PINK SATURDAY AND HAVE A PINK WEEK!!

L♥ve your pink goodies this week. Just when I think I have enough pink in my life I participate in Pink Saturday and see even more sweet things I’d enjoy having in my home or flowers for my gardens or just to look at☺ What could be better than the color pink dancing in your head all morning?

Thanks so much for sharing. Hoping your weekend is filled with sunshine and the comfort of those you love and who love you.
