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

I just finished it this afternoon.
I love all the crystals. The rainbow ones are my favorites.
The sparkle when the suns touches them is unbelievable!

What are you working on this weekend??

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...
