Take a load off Annie...
I have a confession...I have been junk haulin treasure hunting ALL day!
This means I have found some seriously cool treasures, but it means my house is in a shambles! GIGGLE~ I promise you I am trying to pull it all back together, but I am distracted...
do you ever clean and redecorate at the same time?
 I decided to take a load off Annie. SHEW... lets enjoy some pinks and a late cup of coffee...
I am redecorating my living room with more white and sprinkles of pink...

A close up of my pretty pink rose clippy nestled in between these oh so fabulous to die for old French white metal statues...Ahhh imagine my delight and twinkling of my toes when I found these two goodies...

This display is in my living room I added this vintage window and topped it with a really pretty OLD shabby platter...
I found this platter at one of my favorite thrift stores, they only charged me .50 cents... I thought "oh cheap" it must not be worth anything...imagine my surprise to find out it is really old and pretty valuable...


Well, Happy Pink Saturday my sweets...my little people need me and well my house will have to get some love later...
Squishy pink hugs to Beverly for letting all of us pinkies come together.

  16. Hi Olivia,

    Of course I clean and redecorate at the same time. It is messy for awhile til everything comes together the way I want it to. Have fun playing with all your treasures this weekend. Come by and say hello. I am participating in PS, but I didn't get on the list.

  21. Hi Olivia, I love your statues too and your pictures! I finally got a picture up on my blog worthy of pink myself! You will have to let me know what you think. I've been so inspired by you and My Romantic Home, that I'm going to start posting pictures of pretty things in my house too. They are romantic in a more rustic sense. I collect antiques and love them!

    Thrift stores are wonderful! I just got two bulletin boards and two prints to re-do my sewing room!

    Good job on the cheap find! It pays to check out the back doesn't it?

  29. Olivia, thanks for the sweet comment...did you get a new background? I love it!!

    By the way, I had not yet posted the wedding song I wrote for dear hubby when you visited and thought you might like to hear it. I wondered if My Romantic Home will let me submit a song about love as a submission for show and tell. It does 'beautify' my home so it ought to count. :o) I plan to ask, anyway. You are such a sweet encouraging person. Thanks!
