Feelin' Pink


I hope everyone is enjoying their holiday weekend. I have been relaxing and shopping and relaxing some more! I wanted to share a few things I found while out treasure hunting last week. I also noticed without realizing it. . I am on a bit of a pink kick now. It was blue, and now I am in a pink mood. If just makes you feel so warm and fuzzy. Alright, first up is this pretty pitcher. I just love it!

This desk organizer is really great. It needs a tiny bit of tlc but I just couldn't pass it up.

I also found this vanity tray. My mom had one just like it when I was a kid.

I couldn't resist a pretty little rose china plate from England.

I also received another great vintage jewelry box. This one is in excellent condition and blue! I can't wait to get my hands on it!

I wanted to show you some treats I got at my favorite paper store. Bits of German scrap, rub-ons and a cute little box.

Finally, back to pink and some new paper. The bunny one is Japanese handmade paper and the pink/white one is from Italy. I can't wait to use them in my projects this week! Thanks so much for stopping by.
