Pink Withdrawels

First Friday's was lots of fun !! Thanks so much for taking time to go to all of the great Blogs and Websites. Our Next one will be October 3rd.

Ok, I have something totally Awesome, Sweet and Original to show you !! Look at these soft Pink Paper roses. These gorgeous roses were made by my friend Katie, and guess what, They are teabags !!!! Get Out !!!! Can you believe how clever she is ?? They are SO Pretty and she is selling them on her Blog, A Petal Apart. How cool would that be to offer these up at your next Tea Party, or bring them as a Hostess Gift ? Cute !!!

So, have you been going thru Pink Withdrawals this week ? I have. I missed Pink Saturdays due First Fridays so I am trying to make up for it now. :) I made this Super Cute Pink Pincushion for eBay. Is this PINK enough ?? lol !! I found an old milk glass jar and thought it would be great as a pincushion, as you could keep buttons and bobbins inside and pins and needles outside. :)




And I painted another Bible, Yep, Pink !! For eBay. I have been hoarding this vintage pearl earring to embellish something special. Well, what is more special that God's Word ?

Do you have special bits of Lace, Jewelry, wallpaper or stuff you are just waiting for the right thing to use it on ? I have some vintage wallpaper that Heather sent me a year ago, no lie, that is STILL sitting here waiting for me to cut into. There is NO old wallpaper like that at all in the State of Nevada, so I am hoarding this like it were buried treasure. I did order a piece from a lady on Etsy and I hope I will be brave enough to use it.


For a while now I have had a website, but not felt well enough to get it stocked up. So, I am going to use my selling Blog, Sweet n Shabby Stuff as a Trial Website for the time being. I never officially had a Grand opening there, so Hoorah !! This is it !! lol !! Ok, Kinda LAME I know. But I spent a lot of time doing the Artwork for it. This sweet little girl is my Mascot, whatcha Think ???
I will be adding items to it regularly , and Pay Pal buttons for easier purchasing. I am kinda proud of myself as I just started working with the Paint program on my computer and was able to make this Header and the other graphics. I used two of my friends as Guinea pigs first and made them each a header for their blogs,
Pretty Neat Huh ?? Now my son cant call me Computer Dumb anymore !! lol !!

Well, here are a few pretties I have on Sweet n Shabby Stuff right now. I embellished the bottles, and finished some pastry display servers. Love the old Soup Mug, " I am not greedy, but I want enough" Hee Hee !!

And lastly I finished a few of my hand beaded heart ornaments for Etsy. I just LOVE making them. They are time consuming, but they are an Heirloom kind of thing. Meant to be cherished and handed down.
So I hope I have filled you up with lots of Pink Goodness !!! ( And a Cherry too !! )

Hugs,

Rhea
