PINK SATURDAY ~ IT'S MAJOLICA TIME!

Happy Pink Saturday everyone! Thank you so much to our fabulous Beverly of How Sweet the Sound for hosting!

If you haven't already, do wander over to Beverly's blog and say hello. Get comfy and enjoy all the fabulous pinks the other wonderful and clever participants have posted.

For my pink contribution I thought I'd show my pretty pink Bordallo Pinheiro plates and bowls. But first, I have a confession....since I've already packed them up and put them away till next spring....I am posting the photos from last spring.

First we begin with a set of my salad plates....

I had four of these, now I have three *sniffle*

My darling little bunny plates. Haven't used them yet (see the made in portugal stickers on them ha!)

I love the detail on them, see the cute turnips and carrots...too adorable! lol

Here's the cute little bunny wabbit....

I have the pink cabbage cake pedestal which has doubled as a vegie w/dip server (I use a pink cabbage berry bowl for the dip. Cute...yes?

Now these bowls are my favs...they are serving bowls and I love the detail on them...

love the pretty flowers and lattice detail

and the dotted and swirl detail of the underside...

Some of you may recognize these and the cabbage plates from my summer tablescape I posted....

This photo is my right side bar link to the post...

As promised in my last post, here is the link to my ebay listings, pop over and tell me what you think of my header that I created for my listing.

Now I'm off to see what the other fabulous participants have posted for
Beverly's Pink Saturday! Everyone is always welcome! Do join us, won't you!?

Hugs & kisses!

SHOW AND TELL FRIDAY ~ PROJECT UPDATE! ~ VINTAGE CHINA MOSAICS AND AUTUMN WREATHS

Long time no blog! I miss you all very much! I hope this post finds everyone doing well and filled with love, good health and much happiness!

I'm joining Show and Tell Friday, hosted by the fabulous and creative Cindy of My Romantic Home. You should pop over to her post and see the other lovely and creative participants!

I know, I know, I'm a bit early for Show and Tell Friday, but I'm working around a tight schedule here! haha!

Ok, so here is some of what I've been up to! I've been creating (html coding) templates for ebay and they are finally finished. Other than a new header, my ebay template has the same background as my blog page. The header came out fabulous!

I will be positing some listings on ebay this coming friday. Here is a sneak preview of what I will be listing.

Some pretty cottage mosaic creations....




...and couple of autumn wreaths....



I am still trying to tweak my webpage so I can get it up and running (and save myself some ebay fees).

I've started to mosaic the other side table, got the border and focal on the top and the focal placed on the shelf...here's a peek....



I thought by now I'd be able to show you a photo of my "widget" prototype. I had a meeting a couple of weeks ago with a fellow who showed me that we need to redesign the "widget" to make it more cost effective to manufacture. *sigh* So back to the drawing board we go a tweaking. When it is finalized and the patent has been filed, I'll be able to give you a sneak preview!

So that's it for now. I have been (quietly) going around and visiting everyone from time to time (making sure ya'll behave yourselves! *wink*). I hope you haven't given up on me! I will be back as often as time permits!

Don't forget to pop over to Cindy at My Romantic Home for list of other participants! Thanks for stopping by!

Hugs to all!
