Pink Saturday ~ Swap Stuff ~ Cheeper Chicks


Happy Pink Saturday! Isn't this pink cake pedestal so pretty? I found it online at MoleHillFarm (but will probably begin searching HomeGoods for something similar).
~
I recently swapped with Lori from My Faerie Window. I gush (sincerely) all about it in my last post. I want to show you what I sent to Lori and since much of it is pink, I figure it counts as a Pink Saturday post.


Lori told me that she likes my clothespins so I made her a bunch in her favorite colors. She said that was all she wanted. That's all? No way!


I glittered-up the L for Lily of the Valley fairy illustration by Cicely Mary Barker and decorated a frame in which to display it. The frame is painted a pale pink and embellished with floral papers, flowers and beads; it hangs from a pink ribbon.

{Note: If you are interested in a framed fairy print with your own first initial, just click Request Custom Item at my Etsy shop, Tinkered Treasures}



I remembered that Lori had once commented about liking my cabbage roses on aqua glass paperweights, so there was another goodie for her!
~
And now to close my Pink Saturday post, if you visit my Etsy shop you will notice that I have reduced the prices on my baskets and birdhouses.
Now, even cheeper!

A warm thank you to Beverly for all of the work she does to make our Saturdays as pink as they can be!

Happy Pink Saturday. I love your frames, and this one is lovely. I can't wait to write the post about what I put into the one I purchased from you. By the way I love your new photo too!

Elyse said...

ELYSE!! I'm so glad you found my blog because that led me to yours...and it's absolutely precious! I'm totally a follower now. (I mean, how could I not become a follower of a fellow Elyse?!) Yes, my mom calls me Lysie. My godparents call me Lysers. My little sister used to call me Eesie. The variations are endless. It's so rare to meet an Elyse with a "y"--and very exciting, too!

I love hearing stories about long distance success--and your husband started out in California, too! I must admit that I'm much happier being out here with him, but long distance certainly brings out the romantic side in people (that, and the whiny side when you can't see each other :) ).

Can't wait to read more of your wonderful blog! Have a great weekend!

Hi Elyse!

You do such nice work; everything you make is so pretty. I finally got my cottoge blogger button you offered me so many months ago! My husband had to help me; I was just too embarrased to tell you I couldn't figure out how to get it before now! Thank you for giving it to me. Very nice pink plate, too! I hope you find one locally!
