PINK SATURDAY

Hello are you in the pink

and ready for a little pink?

Well in blogland on

Saturdays you can find

it.All you have to do is

visit MsBeverly@
http://howsweetthesound.typepad.com/my_weblog/

Today,we're going back

to my house.ok?Okay,

we're here.Lets go into the

entry.

Ont the right side of the

entry is my little table and

on it is a little angel.She is

watching out for us and

keeping us safe.See..she's

watching all who enter.
























Here we find a pink picture

and my Faberge' want to be

eggs.And one of my favorite

vases.


























Here rate my spacers will



remember is one of my pride



and joys.The picture of the rose?



I found it at a garage sale for $1.00.



It was one side of a very old frame.



That one piece weighs 2lbs.It is



really very heavy.The carving on the



piece ws so elegant.The patina was



soooo lovely.I begged dh to cut it



down for over a year.I even tried



to do it myself.Good thing I stopped.



When I watched him do it,it's not



as easy as it sounds.And in the pro-



cess he made some errors.So,I



had to patch it and paint to



make it work,It 's still lovely,



but the true patina was superb.



















Here we have my pretty lamp,that I wanted to be

even prettier.Everything is prettier with pink on it,right?

So,on go the pink beads.

























Thank you for coming by

today.Please go by and see

the other ladies.They have alot

of pretty pink to show you too.

And PLEASE come by tomorrow,

I have a special favor to ask ALL

of blogland....

FAVORITE FAMILY FOTO FRIDAY
























I really had problems today,every picture I
wanted to blog about I couldn't
find.Then I finally found this one
but, I apologize Grandma

had to come to.She said

we both go or he can't go.

So.....
Todays Favorite
Family Foto Friday
hosted by our lovely
and sweet Ms
Deborah @
http://picturespotspens.blogspot.com/
starts back in 1955.
Yep,I'm THAT old.
This is the year I
became an aunt.And
here's the proof.
This is my beloved
nephew.His name was
Perry.He was my oldest
sisters son.
I thought he hung the
moon.We played together,
after he could walk of course.
We were more like brother and
sister.
This picture is at the old home
place.Back in the hills of Alabama.
Don't you think I'm cute?My
sisters were alot older than me
so he was really my only play
mate.He was a truly special
person.
Thank you for coming by and
seeing more of my history.
Please go check out the other
participants.You can either take
the link after Ms Deborahs name
or the link in the top side bar.
They're waiting fo you.......

TRASH TO TREASURE TUESDAY AND TABLESCAPE TUESDAY

Hello,and a huge
welcome to
Tablescape Tuesday
hosted by the sweet
and lovely Susan @
http://betweennapsontheporch.blogspot.com/
Today,I am showcasing
my Horchow Roosters.
They were on sale about
2yrs ago and I said,
"I want those". As you
can see in one of the
pictures,they are Coventry
Stoneware Spring Rooster.
Along with them are our
flatware by Rogers Brothers
called.First Love.Awwwww.
To keep them company,I
put out momma hen and
big daddy rooster by,Heart
Felt Kitchen Creations.
As you see the bowls are
rather plain,i wish they
also had the rooster in them.
But,you can't have everything.
With this meal we will have
coffee,so out go the coffee
cups and the little matching
cream and sugar.
and the tiny little salt cellar.
I've really enjoyed these dishes.
They of course match my
kitchen and they're hardy
enough for the grand children.
And you can see we're getting
lots of use from our"new"
chairs.












Hello.Welcome to another
trash to treasure hosted by
Diane @ http://diane1876.blogspot.com/
My post today isn't really
trash although they should've
been along time ago.But...the
budget just doesn't have it in
it.So what does a girl do?I have
tried my hand at pretending to
be Rose @http://santamakersjourney.blogspot.com/

and create a reupholstered
work of art.It ain't happening!I
wish I could do what that little
lady does,but....
So,remember when Gloria @http://wwwhappytobe.blogspot.com/

dyed her chairs?A HUGE light
went off.Of course Wallyworld
didn't have many colors,and did
not have the colors,any of the
colors I wanted.But I love this.
It matches
the tans in my entry and in my
living room.Who knew?Thank
you Ms.Gloria.I once again love
my chairs.
They are still in great shape.
I've had covers over them all
their life.But even through the
covers,some stains had gone
through.Not a pretty sight.
Here you see before:

And after-WOW

Before----------------------------

And after.How did I do?

Please-----------------go by and check out the other
participants.We all work so hard.Let us show off.
Thanks for coming by....See ya next week...

PIECE,WOW.WHAT A CHALLENGE
THAT WAS.BUT ALL IN ALL
I'M PROUD OF WHAT I CAME
OUT WITH.
WE NEVER USED THESE
DISHES UNTIL NOW.AND
I WASN'T SURE OF THE
COLORS.WHEN I BOUGHT
THE MAROON PLACE MATS
AND NAPKINS I THOUGHT
WE HAD A LOT OF DISHES
THAT COLOR.WELL,AS YOU
SEE ALL WE HAVE IS THE
SALT AND PEPPER SHAKERS.
I PUT ON AND REMOVED
UNTIL I DECIDED TO DO
JUST THAT.ALL---------COLORS.
I COULD NOT FIGURE OUT
HOW TO COMBINE THEM
AND LOOK ANY BETTER
THAN THIS.
AND AS I SAID THE CENTER
PIECE WAS A REAL DOOZIE.
WHAT WORKED WITH 2 DIDN'T
WORK WITH THE OTHER TWO,
ETC.
