Hi everyone and Happy Pink Saturday....Thank You Beverly of How Sweet The Sound, for hosting this for us each Saturday! You certainly should get a Pinkalicious Award for your sweet dedication to all of us!
As you can see, I am painting up a storm...well, almost..
This is my beloved, very large, pie safe that came from an old hotel in Vancouver, B. C.,Canada. I have had it for a very long time.....I found it in an old barn with tall weeds growing around it. Oh my..it was such a mess and dirty, too!!
It was owned by an antique dealer in Blaine, Wa. He gave me the history of it, and he was the one that retrieved it from the old hotel they were tearing down. It is so heavy four men have to carry it! It's as bad as moving a piano!! We got it home and I painted it a soft cream. Well, the cream is gone now, and this beautiful white has made it seem like a new piece of furniture and I get a happy smile :-) every time I pass by it! Can you believe that I have been wanting to get it repainted for FOUR years????
~I took all my china and stemware out and into the dishwasher it all went. The vintage linens into a gentle soak and everything else hand washed so, everything was freshly ironed and clean to put back into the cupboard.~
~My "Blue" Collection on the top~
While I had the can of paint open I ran upstairs to get this, once green, cute shelf to make it white too...what a difference some paint can make!!!
And, to the horror of my hubby, I took the brush on a little break from the Pie Safe and started my Hoosier Cabinet so I am forced to finish it and I hope to this weekend, but I had to quit for a bit and work on some pink for eBay and here is some of what I have been doing.....~
Pretty pin cushion pins~~
A sweet pillow
And another pretty pillow as well as a pair of darling lavender filled hanging "booties" that will just look cute hanging almost anywhere, and two collectible pin cushions.....that can be viewed on EBAY
This cutie is made with a darling Mary Engelbreit fabric, a sweet little Scottie and lots of handmade ribbon roses...The three roses with the pearl centers, are my "Pretty Pins" that come with it.
A cute summer bag that can be found in my Etsy Shop AnniesShabbyAttic
So you, see, I have been busy.....
I am so glad you came by....I love reading all the comments!
Have a happy week!!!......Jil
