Merry Shabby Chic Pink Christmas!

Twas the night before a Merry Pink Christmas...





The stockings were hung by the chimney with care in hopes that St. Nicholas would soon be there...


My darling kiddos are sooooo excited for Christmas!
What a hustle and bustle of family and fun!
I have so much to be thankful for ...my husband, kids, family, home...but most of all having Jesus in my life to light the way!
Merry Christmas my darling dear friends!

I will be joining My Romantic Home and Pink Saturday for a Celebration of JOY!

May God bless you in the new Year!
Big Squishy Hugs,

Hanger made Shabby Pink FABULOUS!



I found these darling (plain) dress hangers at our Pink Door!
They are perfect for displaying clothes but when an outfit sold I was left with a black plastic boring mannequin!
I have been dying to give the forms a makeover and ooohhhh la la!
I made a bunch of soft pink rosettes mixed in with white and pink satin roses!

FABULOUS!
Over the top pink and white rose lace beauty!
So pretty and girly to display the most delicate of ladies treasures!
I made this one for my pretty in pink bathroom!
I will be listing some in my Etsy store!


Well my lovelies, I hope you enjoyed this pink treat!
I will be posting for a sugar sweet Pink Saturday Christmas!
I hope you are blessed and happy and have lots of yummy food and company to enjoy!
Blessings!
Hugs,
xoxo

My romantic pink laundry room ~giggles~

Hello my darling friends!
I have a very small home and I like to make each room feel cozy and romantic.
My laundry room is no exception!
I used a gallon of paint leftover from my pink powder room and went to town!
The romantic veil disguises a large dryer hose...

A glittering pink laundry sign is perfect for vintage linens!

My upside down garden chandy is decked out with some inexpensive Christmas balls for a festive flair!
Pretty baskets painted white hold household linens.
I use pretty table runners and dresser scarves to cover up the very old cosmetic unattractiveness of my dryer (the ole girl works, but why not make her pretty)!
I put a pretty romantic (tag sale find) tree in here to cheer up the
daily "laundry" duty!
Why not?!
Who said laundry has to be boring...
it really pushes me to keep up with the daily loads of my busy family so it stays pretty!

I am of the belief that if we give thanks and do our best to find beauty even in the ordinary,
we sprinkle love in the path of those we care for and encounter!
I hope all of you find something fabulous in your day!

Merry Pink Shabby Christmas!

Hello my lovelies!
I created this darling Shabby Cottage with pink, glitter and lots of
Shabby pretties!
Honestly, I think I could live right here...
with an angel visiting bringing me roses


I painted vintage buttons with stripes for the lollipop fence decor.
Of course there must be a glittery barn...



I have had so much fun this year creating these pink and oh so Shabby glittering creations.
I am also thankful and blessed for the Pink Christmas I have sold in my little Etsy store...
God is good.
I am thankful for my sweet family and busy life.
I feel God telling me to slow down and that is going to be hard for me to do.
I hope you all are having a beautiful and blessed holiday season...
I will be sharing this with
My Romantic Home
and
Pink Saturday
Squishy hugs,

Shabby Chic Gift Box Fluffing


Hello my sweet friends!
It's beginning to look alot like Christmas!
Lots of shopping, decorating and fluffing!
I created this darling present box out of a white round gift box!

Dig into your lace and pretty trims and add layers of lace to the edges to create a whimsical effect!

In the center use roses or create your own rosettes out of some pretty sheer pink ribbon.


Be careful not to glue your box shut. ~Giggles~
Put your favorite friends pretty gift inside and add a tag...
Oh so Shabby Chic and delightful!
Make one for yourself to use on your cake stand when you run out of cake!

Don't forget to stop by Sandy's studio and enter her gorgeous giveaway!

Have a fabulous pink weekend!
I will be sharing with

XOXO

Shabby Chic Table Setting



Hello lovelies!
I hope you all had a blessed Thanksgiving!
This is my table setting for our Thanksgiving feast!
Last week, I picked up a couple of pretty treasures at the flea market booth.
I used the plates to fluff up my Thanksgiving table.
Plates and Salt /Pepper Shakers ~Etsy Click here~

For my desert table I layered mirrors to dress up and highlight yummy treats.
Added in some candles.
I also used my stacked cake stand teacup creation to display
extra forks and napkins.
(Sooooo easy to make, click on cake stand to create your own!)
Wreath on Etsy (click here)
I put my Shabby Pink Santa wreath on my dining room door for some festive cheer!
For a romantic glow I used lots of tea light ca ndle in these pretty tea cup candeliers ...
being very careful to keep everything low so my guests could see each other.
The little fluffy maribu feather trees were so pretty to fill in the center of the table!

I used lots of mismatch China...everything had roses... against a white table cloth it was very pretty!
This year I cooked the Thanksgiving turkey and most of the fixins!
My guests ooohhhhd and aaaahhhd and ate seconds so I think it was a hit!
I have always hosted our holiday dinners, but never cooked the big bird.
I can't wait to do Christmas dinner, now that I know I can cook a turkey!!!!
Mr. Romantic and I stayed home and watched a movie, ( the kids went with grandma)
Giggles!
Thinking we might get out and brave the crowds, but I am still in my PJS!
Have a lovely Holiday Weekend!
I will be partying with
My Romantic Home

Shabby Chic White Christmas Tree

Hello my sugar plum Shabby loving friends!
Can I just tell you how thankful I am to have Jesus in my life helping me take care of my darling family!
It is time to fluff up my cottage for a super sweet Shabby Chic Christmas!
Oooohhh La La , this is my Shabby Chic Christmas tree that sits in my front window, I was inspired to decorate it this way by one of my very old issues of Romantic Home Magazine! I used lots of darling gold, white and pink ornaments!
Soft and sweet Shabby Chic stockings in creamy white!
Just waiting for that jolly old elf to fill them full of CHOCOLATE I hope!
Giggles!
I have had soooo much fun making Shabby Chic Pink Santa Christmas wreaths this year...
Tons of roses, bridal lace and who can resist this pink Santa!
Wouldn't Mr. Romantic be cute in a Santa Hat. Tee! Hee!


I am hoping to do my mantle this weekend!
Can you believe Thanksgiving is next week?
Mr. Romantic and I are cooking so it should be fun!
