Pink Saturday, Episode thirteen~

Welcome to Pink Saturday, hosted by Beverly at How Sweet the Sound. Please visit her and check out all of the other PINK Saturday bloggers!

Today I will share PINK SHABBY ICE SKATES! As soon as I learned that I was to be Becca's Secret Santa, I just knew these were what I wanted to try and make for her! Gee... the hardest part was trying to find the skates, (and stay within our secret Santa budget!).

Those are stunning! I love that you used decals! I've seen the painted one that the lovely Celstina Marie makes, and I could never do that, but THIS I could do. Love it! Thanks for sharing! :)

Nikki, Don't screem but I just recieved a free pair of skates from the Good Will here, and they are adorable very small! They have another pair that are little girls too with a double blade for I believe $1.25. I love the use of decals, never thought of that. The pair I have I'll be doing for next winter for an interior door. Did yo see the very pink ones I amde this year that are hanging on my mailbox? I think thee back about 4-5 posts. Take care,Lori

Hello Nikki

It is so nice to meet you and to have the chance to view your blog.

Oh My those skates are absolutly gorgeous...love the pink satin laces and all the art work you did. You are definitly very creative.

I will be back often to check you out.

Lana said...

Wow, those skates are works of art. Anyone would proudly put them on display in their homes. Just gorgeous.

Happy Pink Saturday! Lana

Jane Marie said...

Those skates are fabulous! I really enjoyed ice skating when I was young (I actually looked forward to winter). Wouldn't that have been a blast skating in these?

Belinda said...

How creative! Gosh...what a transformation. The skates went from sad and discarded, to little pieces of rosy art! :-)

Liz said...

I'm telling ya! Those are to die for!

Lallee said...

You did such a beautiful job on these. They were a perfect gift for Becca. I like how you embellished the waterslide decals. Just perfect.

Yellow Rose Arbor said...

You did a great job! I love the chunky glitter, especially on the blades! Thanks for the instructions.

Next year I want to be your secret sister! I want black skates with yellow roses!!!!!! Okay??? Pretty Please!!

Rue said...

Those turned out beautiful Nikki and I told you she would love them :)

Oh and we looked a little at the floors underneath the new wood and they look pretty good, but Rich wants to wait until we have more time to get into that. We really needed to get up the living room rug so that we could put the furniture in there right away. It's easier to take up boards then carpet. What a PIA!

They're done now and I'll post about it soon :)

hugs,
rue
