My favorite supply...German glass glitter. Hot pink and sugary white. I use this stuff so often. I am addicted to glitter. I love giving stuff a little sparkle.
Some pretty pink organza ribbons and extra wide tulle ribbon. Plus lots of little millinery. The vintage forget me nots are my favorite. I like the little hydrangea embellishments too. That little Victorian box is something I made years ago...it is just the right size to hold little trinkets or in this case paper flowers.
I think I will decoupage this picture frame. I already gave it a coat of shabby white paint. I love these Victorian Roses. They are from Germany too. So pretty. The rose swag appliques are going on the shabby tray I am making below.
This tray got a coat of shabby white paint too. I am going to line it with this old wallpaper. More little pink roses...can you see a trend here? No question about what my favorite color is♥I think it will be getting some shabby white appliques too.
Happy Sunday to You

If you haven't already entered my giveaway for a Free box of truffles from New England Candy Co please enter here.
Happy Pink Saturday!! My favorite blogging day of the week. I love pink and love showing you some pretty pink treasures every Saturday!
My dining room shelf. I found this corner shelf on someone's curb years ago. It got a new coat of paint and pretty pink roses wallpaper on the back. The teapot on the right is my favorite. I got it as a gift for Christmas a few years ago. The lovely rosey clock was from my 3 boys!! Don't they pick the most lovely presents you ever saw!
I can only wish for this beauty to be in my garden one day. It is a beautiful hibiscus named 'Mary Poppins' I think it is the prettiest of all the hibiscus.
And of course my favorite-pink roses. I love these ones, they are barely ivory at the edge of each petal. Oh they smelled so good.
Make sure you visit our lovely hostess Beverly at How Sweet the Sound

This is one of my favorite farms. I have loved it for so long that I finally had to get a photo. They sell bunnies and plants and I think they have veggies in the summer.
I want to finish this project, so please help me...
which of the two backs do you like better??
Please leave a comment below to let me know your answer.
I think I am leaning toward the one on top.
I'm making some new items for New England Candy Co. We have a new Beach collection with lots of yummy pearlized seashell chocolates, some chocolate lighthouses with toasted pecans and a little sprinkle of pink Himalayan sea salt, and a huge chocolate seashell filled with creamy fudge and crunchy walnuts.
These are delicious milk and dark chocolate swirled with a little pure vanilla. Each seashell is brushed with edible pearl powder for that pretty sheen.
This is our Beach Lighthouse Collection. The lighthouses are dark chocolate with toasted pecans and just a touch of Himalayan pink sea salt.
We'll have our beach collection through the end of summer in our Etsy shop

Let me start by welcoming you to my Belle Blog!!
I have so much pink all around my house...but I don't want to show you something you have seen before.
Pour yourself a cup of tea...
and come look at some favorite pink lovelies I have around my house.
This is a letterbox I shabbified, I painted it the palest of pinks and added a shabby wreath with lots of roses.
Here is a box I use to keep treasures in...right now it is holding some really old and beautiful Victorian scraps.
It is a mini Lane Cedar Chest I painted and decoupaged.
I made it with the intention of selling it, but loved it so much and kept it so selfishly.
As part of pink Saturday we are supposed to find a new blog and introduce it to everyone else. Well everytime I wonder, how will I find a new blog? and then just in the nick of time, I found one. She is a new blogger, but I think it is going to be one of my favorite blogs. It is so pretty I know you will love it.
The lovely blog owner is Fulvia and the blog is called
Please be sure to pay her a visit...she is a new blogger and would love the company. Plus she is having a fabulous giveaway...but don't enter it because I want to win it...just kidding.
Look at this darling pink pincushion!!
How about all the vintage buttons♥
And this is just one of her hat pins...she makes these herself. It is so pretty I am swooning♥♥
I bought this pink one in celebration of Pink Saturday...but it was hard choosing. She has so many pretty things. Don't forget to stop by and say hi to Fulvia.
Happy Pink Saturday!!
Be sure to visit our hostess Beverly and all of the other Pinkie Blogs for some more of your weekly dose of pink!!

Look at these two beautiful pendants I found on Etsy. I was chatting with Lois in an Etsy forum about blogging and later she sent me a message. We figured out we live close to each other. In fact Lois lives in the same town I graduated high school from. I couldn't stop thinking about her beautiful work all day so I just had to buy these. The first one with the pink rose was easy, it is named Becca's Rose after her daughter. Seeing as how my name is also Rebecca, pink is my favorite color, and it is a rose...my all time favorite, I just had to buy this one.
This was my second choice. It was harder. She has so many beautiful pendants in her shop I had trouble picking one. Could've easily bought many more.
If you want to check out her gorgeous shop go here.

I also want you to see the fabulous giveaway on OC Cottage.
Aren't these yummy!! And this is just a small part of the giveaway! Everything is just lovely!
♥♥♥♥ ♥♥♥♥ ♥♥♥♥ ♥♥♥♥ ♥♥♥♥
I am working on some other cool stuff too! These two round wood cabinets.
I think they are in need of a little shabby makeover. I am going to paint and decorate and by the time I am done you won't even recognize them anymore. I think they will be in need of a little shabby crystal embellishment as well. Maybe even some pretty vintage hardware. We'll see what I can find for them. I will keep you updated with lots of re-do photos!!
♥♥♥♥ ♥♥♥♥ ♥♥♥♥ ♥♥♥♥ ♥♥♥♥
Finally, I have an announcement of something very cool coming up AND I am going to be doing a giveaway of some YUMMY Chocolates in the next couple of days!!!
I'm deciding which candies to put in the giveaway.
Whatever they are it will be yummy! Check back to see when I post the giveaway. It will probably be Wednesday or Thursday.
