My little bunny is pretty sick. I am just waiting for the vet's office to open. He just sits in one spot looking down. He doesn't eat, and barely drinks a drop of water every so often.

I hope the little guy is ok, and that this is something the vet can treat.

Ha Ha! My chair is so old and beat up. Spaz took over though. I think he's so cute peeking out. He was so comfy.

Happy Pink Saturday

I am working on several pink projects right now, but they aren't done yet so I don't want to post any pics yet. So what can I show you for Pink Saturday this week?

Here is a new Crystal...

I think they would make really pretty christmas ornaments, chandelier decorations, fan pulls...

I also made these pink tiles with pretty German scraps decoupaged on. I love them.

Please be sure to visit our Pink Saturday hostess, Beverly, and visit all this week's pink participants.

Happy pink Saturday...and here's my new baby!

Here is my pink for today!! These pretty pink chandelier crystal drops.

Here is my new baby...He is the cutest thing ever. Even though he isn't pink I had to show him to you. When I was out tag saling last weekend there was a sale at a farm in the middle of nowhere. I was looking at a cute kitchen cabinet when the lady started showing my how her chickens were trained. Then she showed me three little kittens. I picked this little guy out. The first day he was a scaredy cat. Now he follows me around everywhere and wants to cuddle all the time.

I haven't named him yet even though he has been here for a week. I just can't decide on a name. He is sooo tiny.

Please visit our lovely hostess, Beverly to see the list of all the pink Saturday participants.

What I've been working on...

I have been working on so many projects this week. I set a goal for myself to list at least 1 new items in my Etsy shop each and every far so good.
Yesterday I listed this vintage shabby chic birdcage. It has lots of these sparkly pink chandelier crystals.

Today I listed this cottage candy dish. It is done in one of my favorites...palest aqua color and covered in pretty light peridot green chandelier crystals and pink Baroque crystals and pink teardrops.

Happy pink Saturday!!

Please visit our host Beverly at How Sweet The Sound and of course make sure you visit some of the participants of pink Saturday

Vintage Cottage Finds

I spent the weekend again searching the State of Connecticut for some pretty treasures...and just look at what I found.
Isn't it so pretty? This is Royal Albert Old Country Roses. I love this pattern. It is so pretty. I found a teacup years ago in Westport, CT and now I found this matching tiered pastry tray. It is just begging for some little cookies and sweets.
Definitely Tea Party Material!
These are adorable little candleholders I found and gave a new cottage look. Two colors of blue, and some shaby little white roses at the base of each one.
This letterholder also got a new look with ivory paint, and then the palest pink overlay. There is still just a hint of the ivory peeking through. This piece is definitely shabby chic. Especially with the little roses on the front of each pocket.
I still love these chandelier prisms. They are a peridot green color. They are on sale right now in my shop. I took $10 off the price of 5 yds. I also have 15yd lengths on sale in my shop, so if you need more for a bigger project I have them in stock.

I don't have a photo yet, but I might have a little surprise later today... If I do I'll be posting back with some pics later and I'll post pics on my facebook page too. Here is a meows!!

Pinkity Pink Pink Saturday

First let me show you these adorable "sugared" candies. I made a lot of these this week for a bridal shower. My customer wanted lots of pink...I wonder if she knows about Pink Saturday?
These are handpainted then dipped in Glitter for a sugary sweet look. Perfect Pink Saturday sugary sweetness.

I went out bargain hunting again today. I found these lovely cups by Emma Bridgewater of London. I am not sure how old they are. This pattern is called Rose Chintz. I also found a set in the Fig & Olive pattern, the Striped Tulip pattern, and another pattern I can't find online so I'm not sure what it is called. It has little bumblebees on it. 

If any of you know anything about these sets, please let me know.

I hope you enjoy this weeks pink selections...

Please visit Beverly (our lovely Pink Saturday hostess) for more pink goodies!

Some treasures!

This weekend I spent the entire weekend going to Estate sales, flea markets, tag sales, garage sales, moving sales... I drove all over most of the state of Connecticut!
I found several pieces of lovely furniture...
I have to give them all a good cottage style makeover though.
Even though I just took these "before" photos I can already see in my mind what the after will look like.
I can't wait to show you!
This matching set is so cute...
I kinda like the green, but don't think they will stay that color for long.
Ha! Can you see my favorite magazine??
Romantic Homes of course...
It seems everytime I pick one up, someone I know from blogging is featured...
Elyse from Cottage, Koralee from Bluebird Notes
I love both of their blogs...and Elyse's house puts mine to shame! All I can say is wow!
Both of their blogs are eye candy for sure♥
I am addicted to these vintage canning jars...I love these aqua blue ones the best.
I found 2 really old ones with zinc lids. 
I also worked hard to finish some projects. I have had this one for over a year. I figured I can't keep buying things if I never finish any. I gave these canisters a shabby coat of white, and filled them up with some lovely pink treasures. I don't know if you can see those sparkly pink stars in the middle canister. I had a swap with a girl on Etsy. She folds these amazing stars out of paper then makes them all pretty and glittery.
This pink shelf is another one that has been waiting for far too long. It is a vintage shelf, solid wood which is rare now in the age of laminate. It got some layers of different cottage pinks and a really pretty rose swag. It came out really good.


This is my absolute favorite piece. It is a vintage beautiful lamp. It got two layers of aqua paint in different shades for a little depth. The shade is made of strings of crystal prisms...These are the most perfect and gorgeous chandelier crystals I have ever seen. They are cut with so many facets. I have never seen crystals this perfect before. These give off so many rainbows. The whole room dances with rainbows when a sunbeam hits this lamp. The photos don't even come close to doing this lamp justice!

That's it for now...

I hope you liked seeing some of my treasures from this weekend!

I promise not to take so long turning these "befores" into "afters"♥
