Pink Saturday and I'm still sick!!!!!

Good Pink Saturday to all of you "Pinkies." My post this week is simple because that's all I have the energy for! I am still down with this stinkin' flu bug! I actually feel a little better but this constant coughing prohibits sleep for any length of time! So my concentration and energy level is a bit off. But I made a commitment this week so here's a little something pink I created:

A Pretty Paper Mache Pink Egg filled with Shabby Bunny Rose Gift Tags!

I hope everyone is feeling well and enjoying the end of winter! Spring just has to be here soon! Please remember to visit Beverly at to view all of the participants this week!

Pink Saturday ~ My Pink Projects!

Good Pink Saturday my friends! Don't forget to visit Beverly at to see all of the participants this week! I have actually been very inspired this week and created some pretty pink projects I would like to share.

I purchased a scallop edge paper cutter and of course I just couldn't wait to try it out! I created these adorable gift tags using vintage wall paper, rhinestones, and seam binding. I tea-stained them just a wee bit too! I do like the way they turned out!

I love Candy Lights and I was excited to embellish this electric candle lamp. I painted the base a pretty pink and added vintage ribbon, a rhinestone and flower accent. The Candy Light bulb is "sugared" meaning glitter has been added to it. Oh so pretty!

My final project this week has been to re-do this doll-size wood desk. First I painted the wrought iron bottom white and the desk a nice shade of pink. Then I distressed it some for that oh so shabby look we all love! I decided to add some vintage ribbon and paper flowers. I think this turned out pretty well or "cute" as hubby said!

Thanks for allowing me to share my latest projects. I will be listing these items for sale this week in my boutique.
Wishing you a very "pink" weekend! Don't forget to stop by next Saturday for my Valentine's projects and on Sunday for my Valentine Swap listing. My swap partner, Lisa, sent some amazing things and I just can't wait to show everyone!
