A Pink Saturday Potpourri.......

I am running around chasing my tail, or though it would seem. It always gets crazy before the Trade Days Antique Flea Market that I host twice a year on the half acre behind my store........not only am I busy securing quality dealers, but I try to have fresh and new merchandise in the sale as well. This Pink Saturday I present a whole mismash of pink items, but all things that I love. They have all been specially prepared for the sale.....except the paintings......someday I will have enough quiet time to finish these, but thought if I shared them it would make me do it faster because of total embarrassment because these have been sitting for almost a year in this incomplete state........or maybe not, we'll see :) There is no special theme other than pink and pretty today.......hope you enjoy........and think of me as I quietly go crazy the rest of the week.
I still adore antique china mosaic and knew these flat frames would accommodate beautiful patterns.....I especially love using the capodimonte roses in the corners for wonderful depth. Once grouted, they will be ready for the sale.
Victorian cones made from old window screen.....they can be painted any color desired and are precious on door knobs and handles because of the smaller size.
Paintings I haven't finished yet.....now now maybe I will as I have embarrased myself into completion by sharing :)
Gorgeous vintage fabrics made into what I sweetly call my "big ass bags"....great for grocery shopping or for just toting things around.
Sweet little antique teacup pincushions......
Last, but not least, is the slipcovered vintage patio chair....ready for the Trade Days, but you're gonna have to beat Brenda to it has she has seriously been eyeing this piece :)
Want more pink today? Jump over to Beverly's Pink Saturday to see what the other participants have prepared especially for you this week........the sidebar has the button and there is alot more to see!
