Visiting Pink

With all the rain and wind this past week, there are no leaves left on the trees. The warm autumn color has been replaced with bare stark branches against the grayish sky. You know winter is coming, and that Christmas of course will be right around the corner........... but I am resisting the urge to show off all my pink shiny brites. (Wait until you see what I just picked up at a church sale this morning for a dime a piece! Downright giddiness.) I shall be good and will wait till after Thanksgiving. So for some pink today, I am visiting my friend Darcy. She always puts together such pretty vignettes. (Remember she is the lady with the 3 goats, 2 peacocks and 1 pig.)

Darcy owns a log cabin home which she has decorated in Victorian Shabby Chic. For her it works. In her sun room, she has layered mirrors up again one rock wall. I love the pink lampshade that she has paired with an old lamp.

I was with her when she found this old window frame. It was already this fabulous shade of pink. She added scrapbook paper on one window and then the other window holds a photo of one of her goats done in pink tones. I love this photo. Phoebe, the goat is munching on flowers outside her little shed. A few keys and misc metal pieces complete the look.

This is her birthday gift to herself. This settee is really more pink tones but looks lavender in the photo. It was a Home Goods Find, and as their commercial says "Find what makes you happy".

My own pinks range from the practical, a brand-new-still-in-the-original box bread slicer to ........

Pretty Pink Roseville.

Please be sure to join Beverly at How Sweet the Sound for some more pink loveliness. (Please click here)

Tomorrow, the winner will be announced of my giveaway (Giveaway is now closed). I wanted to do proper justice to all the folks who stopped by and left such sweet comments and wanted to share them and introduce you to their blogs.

Enjoy the beautiful fall weather today. Remember that raking leaves is better than shoveling the snow. Have a good day.

Got it at Goodwill

The window frame is the perfect shade of pink and the photo is really cute of your friends goat. I love thrift shopping too-you never know what you will find but I love to imagine what a piece I bring home's former history might have been. Happy pink saturday to you and I hope your week to come is grand!

For some reason church sales are the best for shiney brites. I have a bunch too. Can't wait to see your find.

Take good care,

Sherrie, it really wouldn't bother me a bit if you started showing Christmas stuff now, especially pink Shiny Brites!
Your friend really knows how to make the Shabby Chic look work in her log cabin! That picture of her goat is such a great whimsical touch!
Happy PS!


Nice shabby cabin and I think having a goat would be fun!
Ha,'s snowing here! All day infact and 8 inches of the pretty white stuff!
It's always fun to see the goodies you find! The church sales are over around here :(

Church sales are the best aren't they. I can't wait to see what you got! My favorite church sale of the year is coming up next weekend. They always have their annual sale the Saturday before Thanksgiving plus both the middle school and elementary school will be having their Holly Bazaars. It will be a fun day. Happy Pink Saturday.
