LIFE IS NOT MEASURED BY THE NUMBER OF BREATHS WE TAKE, BUT BY THE MOMENTS THAT TAKE OUR BREATH AWAY.

Pink Saturday and Valentine's !!

Happy Pink Saturday !!! Thank you to our wonderfully Sweet Hostess, Beverly from How Sweet The Sound !! Cant wait to see all of the Pink Pretties out there in Blogland on the sweetest day of the year !! :)

I guess I will start with a few more recent finds. I bought these two large GORGEOUS pink roses bowls and all of these cute pink roses antique butter pats on eBay a while back. There are really good bargains and some beautiful stuff to be had on eBay right now. They looked SO pretty in the pictures, but when I opened the package I about fainted. These are all SO yummy !!!! :)
And in Honor of Valentine's day, I thought I would share a few of my dollies. The first three are vintage candy box dolls. They are smaller than the normal old plastic dress me type dolls. These are about 5" tall and would have been on the outside of a chocolate box. Now, what girl wouldn't love receiving one of these on Valentine's day ? The first one is my Favorite. She has the sweetest little face and chubby pink cheeks. The other two have their original millinery flowers on them. Sweet !!!! :)



These are a New Design I have been working on and will be adding to My Etsy store later in the week, along with Easter items. My Sweet Patisserie Girls. They will be adorned with their very own mini pastries and sweets. The first two are ones I made for Me for Valentine's day.


Do you like them ??? I sure do and I hope that others are as in love with them as I am. :) I also have a " Let Them Eat Cake" Marie Antoinette Series of little beauties as well. Their clothing and crowns are all made by me, as well as their cakes and hairdo's. I am really proud of these and think they are So adorable.

So, what are your plans for this most romantic of days ? We are celebrating my in laws 50th wedding anniversary tonight with them. They had a large party a few weeks ago and family came in from out of state, but tonight it will be just the four of us. I am honored that they want to spend their special day with us :) I have treats wrapped for my sweet Hubby. And am looking forward to spending the day Head Over Heels . :)

Oops, forgot this little sweetie :) She is a bisque Nancy Ann doll from the 40's in her original Valentine dress. Way Sweet !!! :)

Well, I am SO thankful and happy that you stopped by. I cant wait to run over to Bev's and see all of your pink stuff today !! :) Happy Pink Saturday and Happy Valentine's Day !!! :)

Hugs,

Rhea

Hi
Your dolls are great. I have a thing for vintage china I keep the fairly good pieces for myself and use the chipped or craked ones in my mosaics. I enjoy everything you create.
