Pink Saturday

Hello friends, and welcome to Pink Saturday hosted by Beverly of http://howsweetthesound.typepad.com/ I'd like to Show you some of my pretty pillows. Starting from the back left, I got this pillow from QVC a few yrs ago. It is made of ribbon flowers. So pretty and cottagy I thought. Next to that one on the right, I bought from e-bay. This is made from one of the newer materials with a roses and teacup pattern! Perfect for me! Best of all, it is filled with the most fragrant lavender buds. I got it 2 yrs ago, and when you squeeze it, the fragrance is still there. Perfect for your stuffy nose. Next, in front left, is a sweet little feminine lace pillow, adorned with a vintage doily, and cluster of roses in the center. The heart shaped one is made from vintage chenille bedspreads. They all sit in an old wood framed arm chair that was my grandma's. I threw a tablecloth over the chair, and then covered over that with another Quaker lace tablecloth to give it the layered look. I had seen that done in a magazine, and thought it was a great idea.

Aren't these little sachets just adorable? I also got these on e-bay. They are shaped like strawberries, and filled with lavender buds. Each one is decorated a little different using snippets of ribbon, lace, buttons, beads, pieces of old doilies, and flowers. I wanted to make some myself, but never seemed to get around to it lol! AI have seen these in so many colors and one is prettier than the other. There is no end to how you can decorate these. Even using vintage jewelry would be fabulous! They seemed to be a big hit on e-bay about a yr ago. I have them displayed in a little stemmed glass I found in Home Goods, on one of my end tables in the living room.
Well, I just love this little postcard. I got this image from sweet Dawn over at http://the-feathered-nest.blogspot.com/ She is the sweetest, and often shares a lot of her images for us to use in art work. I added a blue frame to this one, but I just love the little delicate pink flowers, and the pretty birds. I collect vintage postcards, and have made some nice collages with them, that I will share at another time. Thanks for stopping by, and hope you will come back again.
Have a great holiday weekend!
Debbie
