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.

Mirror, Mirror on the Wall...
The shabby white mirror makeover gets me everytime!
I am like a little kid that has seen a magie trick! I love these mirrors they remind me of Snow White.  I found this little gem for $2 at a super ritzy neighborhood garage sale...imagine my surprise when I flipped it over and the back said Made in Italy, enough reason for me to keep it and take something different into the booth. Giggle!


This was my little diamond in the rough before the primping and fluffing at the Shabtastic Beauty Salon...
I unscrewed the mirror from the back and brushed it up with regular old latex paint which is fine if you plan on distressing it, which is what I did with this one.

I found a place for the mirror by my front door.
I am fascinated with wedding veils, and I sprinkle them in with all of the rest of my whites...
this veil kept making its way into the picture...

I loved the shape and size this mirror came in...perfect for nearly every space!

Oh la la! I hope you enjoyed this delightful eye candy!
