Pink Saturday

Pink Saturday sure comes around fast!! I am posting a little early because I have a meeting tomorrow with our painting club and won't be home til late. I didn't want to miss this fun party so I hope you don't mind. I have always loved the 1957 T-Bird and thought it was the one car I would just love to have and it should be pink. Of course, I don't have a pink T-bird as of yet and probably never will - I have sat in one and found out it isn't the most comfortable ride and very hard for me to get out of (too low to the ground). My wonderful nephew, Frankie, sent me this little reminder that you should always hold on to your dreams.

I also try to paint as often as I can and with the holidays fast approaching, I have started painting ornaments for my Etsy shop. As I was out shopping last week I noticed our Hobby Lobby had put out their Christmas Decorations - I know, a bit early, huh? Anyway, I found several that I thought would be great to paint on. The first is a wood stocking painted in Bavarian white with a pink glittered cuff. The bells were originally brass but I sprayed them pink. I love the Santa with his pink hat and the rose on the fur. I also stamped pink snowflakes on the front and the back. As much as I like him, he will be heading to my Etsy shop. Then I found this pretty glittery tin puffed heart with cutouts on both sides. I just knew I could paint a little rose on it to make it even prettier - but I didn't really think it through. Once I started I soon found out it is very difficult to paint over this glittery stuff. But I managed to get one little rose on it and now I love it. It too will be heading to the Etsy shop.

Please welcome my friend Jeanne Downing to Pink Saturday. She is a beautiful artist and a wonderful teacher. This is her first time to participate in Pink Saturday and you just have to see her luggage. I am not sure how to insert the link but her blog is: JeanneDowning.blogspot.com.

  3. I LOVE the pink T-Bird! I can picture myself in that car. Let's take a spin in it together. Afterall, it is not about comfort but about how you look!

    Your santa and ornament are beautiful! I love the soft pink of the stocking and santa's hat. A little glitter in the rose on the ornament will "bond" the two together.

    Thanks for encouraging others to visit my blog and the lovely comments about my painting.
