Pink Saturday, Episode Seventeen~

Welcome to Pink Saturday, hosted by Beverly at How Sweet The Sound.

This is a very special Pink Saturday, celebrating 2 years~

Congratulations Beverly and thank you for being such a gracious host!



Please visit her to enjoy all of the pink festivities!

Today I give you



~PINK STITCHES~



I have rounded up some of my favorite things that have been stitched in pink,
many hand sewn.


Let's start in the dinning room.

First up, a hand crocheted table runner


Another runner on the buffet, this one factory made... (pink teapot bonus!!)



glancing to the table we find hand stitched applique placemats~complete with napkins and holders,



Moving on to La Boudoir~I pulled a bunch of things together, some from storage. All shown on top of a vintage bedspread and a 50's quilted taffeta pillow.


A sweet dresser scarf and hankie, along with a needlepoint pillow~



Two crocheted doilies and a vintage hooked chair pad~ I'm lucky to have the set of 4, squeee!


Ahhh... pink stitched garden flowers...


These purses could tell a story~

Can you imagine this gentleman courting the fair maiden with bouquets and then walking her home to her quaint little cottage?
A cross stitch rose apron with embroidered pillow cases~

And let's not forget... one of my all time fave finds...

this incredible vintage chenile embroidered applique bedding set! To see more about this awesome ensemble, visit La Boudoir.


Happy Memorial Day to all.

I thank our soldiers and verterans


for giving us all we have.

Wow, you've been as absent from blogging as I have! Just wanted to stop on by and say hello. I finally put up a post. I'm so busy these days working, keeping house, and dating. Yes, I'm in love! It's only been three months, but he feels like Mr. Right to me.

Hope all is well with you! Loved all your pink here. I miss all your beautiful posts. I remember when you first posted about that boudoir set!
