A Sweet Pink Saturday

I look forward to Saturdays because I get to share the beautiful pink things that have made their way into my life over the years......and for someone that really didn't like this color for the majority of my life, I find it very curious that I now have so very much of it.....hmmm, gotta wonder what that's all about.....

This is an old wooden box I made over 15 years ago. It is covered in antique tea stained laces and adorned with my Grandmother's broken costume jewelry. The beaded pieces are from my daughter's competition skating dresses. The jewelry had so much meaning and the beading was just priceless as it represents so much time and so many memories. The box holds a journal I wrote in during a very difficult year of my life.....it's all just very precious to me for so many different reasons.



And, of course,
my absolute favorite saying......


Then
there is my collection of crocheted hearts.....although I have over 50, these are the only two pink ones, and my favorites as well.



This sweet little
lavender organza sachet is something I'm making to attach to clothing hangers for your closet as they are a natural moth repellant.



Then there
is my reproduction "wannabe" yard long Paul De Longpre. I have always wanted one of the antique lithographs in it's original frame, but just can't make myself pay that much for the water stained pieces on Ebay. Maybe I'll just buy a Christie Repasey instead......one of these days ;)



I thank Beverly, our wonderful weekly host, for keeping up with all the "pinks and participants." If you share our love of the color pink, use the button on my sidebar and see what the others have for you this week.....it's always like a big pink hug!
xo,
jana

  1. As a fellow lover of everything PINK, I surely enjoyed your blog today. That box is so phenomenal! You are very talented and I've never seen anything quite like it. I wish that I had that kind of talent. I'm just struggling through painting my bathroom. I've been at it for 3 months now!!!!!! LOL

  14. Your memory box is so beautiful. Jana...your artistic talent is a given, but the sentiment that encompasses the entire piece is what is so special. There is a lot of love coming from that box....I could just feel it even before I read your words.

  15. You have shared some very interesting pinks! I especially love your box with the memories attached. What a great idea to do with memorabilia. My dds are both synchronized swimmers with lots of bling on their show suits so you are giving me a great idea. I liked your crochet covered hearts, too. Thanks for sharing.

    Blessings,
    Tricia
