Hoorah for Pink Saturday!

Good Saturday pinkies!  I sure hope everyone had a wonderful week and a even better weekend!  I have to work today and then I am visiting my son in college, about an hour away, so I may be a little late visiting all of the wonderful pink this week!

For this week's pink post I thought I would share a pink project that I have worked on this past week.  I can't take credit for this because I was inspired by some blog friends for this idea but I sure can't remember who (I am so sorry and please take credit if it was you).  I saw some yummy pink pumpkins on several blogs.  And while I have admired them I tend to be more traditional and add orange pumpkins to my kitchen and outside decor.  But, I had an "aha" moment and decided that there were some changes I could make in my living room.  It is burgundy and ivory with a few pink accents.  Sooooo....

I started with this:

And ended with this!

I used:

Yummy Ballet Slippers Spray Paint and some German Glitter Glass!

So I got to change up my cloche to make it a bit more seasonal and it matches too!  I was a little stuck because I felt I need a little something else.  So I gathered some leaves and spray painted them pink.  And, I added some paper mums.

Leo seems to like it too!

Please visit Beverly at to see all of the pink participants this week.

Have a great pink weekend!  I hope you create something pink too!

Your pumpkin is just perfect and what a great idea for the leaves. My house is not a pink house, for me the colors are all fall. I do love to see how others can change something from one thing into something so pretty like you just did. Happy Pink Saturday, Char
