Pink Saturday

Beverly at How Sweet the Sound host Pink Saturday each week. This will be my first time to participate - that is if I can figure out how to insert the links.

I have so many things I have wanted to paint over the years but never seemed to find the time to finish them all. This darling little shelf has been in my stash for a very long time, thought it needed a few pale pink roses before placing it in my ETSY shop. And the little tote, I think it held a hair dryer back in the day - some of you may recall that we had bonnet style hair dryers before the blow dryer came along. It was a brown color but of course, I painted it pink - my favorite color. And the little wild flowers on a plaque - just something a bit different but still in my favorite color. The shell may be abolone - I am not so sure even though that is what the lady told me when I found it in a yard sale. It makes a perfect soap dish, again painted with pink roses. And the little napkin holder or letter holder, needed an updated look - with pink roses of course. Pink is on my palette right now but I think I will change my colors this weekend with another of my favorite colors - lavender/purple.


  1. Hi Brenda,
    Oh my heart skips a beat to see your gorgeous new creationg. Just beautiful. I had one of those tote when I was a little girl. I used it for overnight stays with my grandma. Adore the painting in the shell. You have been busy and everything is lovely as always.
    Congrats on joining Pink Saturday. I'm still not a participant, but I should be. LOL!!
    Hope you have a great weekend.
    Happy Painting!
    Hugs, Celestina Marie
