Welcome to Pink Saturday. I have a house filled with pink items but I am finding it more and more difficult to pick something to write about each week. This week I decided to show you a sweet little jewelry box I recently picked up while out thrifting. She was the usual brown color but I fell in love with the cabriole feet. After sanding, priming and several coats of creamy white paint, I painted a little vine of pink rosebuds and tea roses. When you lift the lid you will find several cascading tea roses, and even one on the back. Although I am not a fan of the distressed look I decided to try it this one time - well, I like the way it turned out and will be doing it again - who knew?? As sweet as she is she will be going into my ETSY shop where I hope she finds someone who will love her as much as I do.
If you have followed my blog you know I hate cold weather - I don't hate winter just the cold weather. This week we have had temps in the seventies (we only have about eight weeks of cold weather) and I am a happy camper. If I am lucky my sweet neighbor will come out to play with me - I sit on my swing - she sits in the sun to gather rays (I sit in the shade - the sun wrinkles me) and we chat for hours. I know - I should be in my studio painting but I am on my way out to read and watch the birds. In the meantime, please take a second to visit Ms. Beveraly at How Sweet the Sound and see what our Pink Participants are showcasing this week. Until next time,
