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

I hope everyone is having a lovely pink Saturday!

I have been running about trying to accomplish several things at once. Not too successfully ha! Seems as fast as I go, time is faster. I'm definitely having a white rabbit Saturday! I'm late, I'm late, for my very important pink date....

I'm sure you fellow pinks recall this from last Saturday....

THE HOW TO AQUA TREATMENT tutorial is available here at my How To page.

Here is it filled with loads and loads of pink (faux) roses...

You know my motto, go faux, go big!

I had a few pink roses left over and added a few pink hydrangeas, pulled out another one of my favorite urns and...voila!

You recall my Michaels steal of a deal vase that I filled with pink cherry blossoms, it normally hangs in front of the large window in my dining room.

Since all the light is behind it, it doesn't show well in photos, see...

Side note: My blanc de blanc staffordshire like cats flanking the arrangement were given a lite sanding, one coat of Kilz primer/sealer (spray can), two coats of American Standard Blossom White (spray can) and a high gloss finish (spray can).

I put the cherry blossoms over here for a better photo....

See my little living room, I'm dying to paint that knotty pine armoire french blue and get a slip cover for the sofa....but that's another post!

Now, I came across another blogger who has an absolutely darling blog. She is Sandy Foster of My Shabby Streamside Studio.

Isn't her studio fabulous?! Wait until you see her blog! You definitely should pay a visit and have a look around. Her blog is so very pinkalicious! Be sure to say hello for me if you will. ;)

Ok you pink darlings, I'm dashing off.... visit fabulous pink participants and their beautiful pinks for Beverly's Pink Saturday!

Thanks so much for spending some time with me! I hope you enjoyed your visit!

Happy Pink Saturday Tina Sweetie...
Love your post, and I adore these urns and arrangements of yours. They are so beautiful. I can't wait to see that French blue color on your armoir and your slipcover for your couch. Like me, you do a little bit at a time. That is all that we can do. Don't want to bite off more than we can chew.

I love Sandy @ My Shabby Streamside Studio. Isn't it precious? Thank you for sharing sweetie. Have a beautiful Saturday. Country hugs, Sherry

Hello Tina,

Yep, there is a major buzz going on right now....Alice is now 19 years old....

Read my post about it here:

I haven't made it to the theater yet but plan to next week.

Thanks for the kind words about my dried roses photography....there's just something divine about watching the rose dry to that deeper hue.

Have a great day,

Hi Tina,
I don't even know where to start! First of all, how have I missed following and subscribing to your blog??? Yikes!!! I have now given you a special place on my home page so I don't miss a thing!!!

I've always wanted to do mosaic and now I have a teacher...thanks! Also, recently I have been collecting vintage jewelry and wanted to embellish some pretty frames but didn't know what glue would be best... You are so inspiring and I will visit your gorgous blog often!

Denise Marie said...

Tina, you totally inpsired me to take the plunge and go big!! my mom gave me a blue and white vase/urn that is set outside on my porch and when I saw some tall yellow precithia branch (sp?) on 40% off at Micheael's I got 3. Now, I want to go back and buy 3-6 more to really fill it in. It is nice and dramatic and eye catching.

Thanks for the inspiration.
