Miss Kitty

I bought this basket(yes I bought it because it was pink) at a garage sale on Saturday. I brought inside and no sooner had I set it down and my kitty(she's at least 17 years old) had to get in. She is the first pet I ever had in my life and I really love her. She has so much spunk and personality and of course she loves pink-she told me so!

Pink Gumball Machine

Inspiration-found this on another blog(sorry can't remember where)-love the storage for necklaces. Bought this at a garage sale missing glass and painted it pink -I have a red one in the sale barn-may have to put it on here because I've had this for a year and still haven't found the glass replacement

Pink Pinwheels

Don't know what I'd do with these-but they're cute! Fun for a party decoration. Maybe my friend Teresa can figure out how to make some of these!

Pink Stripes

Love this swimsuit-may have to order it too!
T shirt I bought last year-I actually bought a couple because they were cheap

Vintage Tie that I've had forever

Pink Flip Flops bought last year from Elder-Beerman(yes, I haven't worn them yet)

Pink Halter Top just bought from JCPenney A person can be obsessive about pink, but what about pink stripes. I'm now looking for them everywhere. I went ahead and ordered this umbrella(it was calling my name) and yesterday I bought a pink striped halter top. Where will I stop? The problem is I know I won't. I love the hunt-the find-the high I get when I accomplish the task. I love to help other people find what they're looking for also. Let me know if you can't find it-I'll sure try!

My New Pink Outdoor Rug

Just received my new pink outdoor rug for my camper. I already have one and it holds up so well with the gravel at the campground. It will be nice to have one the whole length of the camper-YEH!

Pink Children's Chair

I've got a few of these(won't tell you how many-yes-this is a different one from the ones you've seen on the Ella Mae's post)(and yes I did just buy one at the Brocton sale)but this one I received from a friend for Christmas several years ago. It sits on my back porch and I have this very well loved(or scary to some people) doll.

Lucky Find

I always look for these -but never find them-but yesterday she was waiting for me at the antique store where I have a booth. A quick trip around after I took some new items in and she was coming home with me!

My New Pink Tent

I love my new tent-it's easy to put up and I can use it at Ella Maes or... camping!

Another Pink Project

I was going thru a flickr mosiac page from Holiday Jenny and came across these picture. What a fun idea. Every other board painted pink. Wait...I just pulled something out from the barn this morning.
More inspiration

Cute pink awning

Pink striped parasol
This was in the barn-not to appealing... but wait
How does it look now? It's light enough to use anywhere-the barn sale-camping-the tent-the yard-who would have thought!

Lots of Little Pink Stuff

Went junking yesterday and found all this little pink stuff. I've been searching for items to put inside the glass jars behind my counter at Ella Maes Barn. The 3 little shoes will go in one and I'll use the pink tape measure when we need it. The pink lights will either be for my pink Christmas trees(2) or my camper. The crepe paper and ribbons will be saved for a party. I thought the gold silver safety pins were fun along with blue beads. The trim will be used for some project along with the rose decals. Check out Ella Maes to see what else I found.

Yesterday's Finds

I stopped by a friend of my husband's antique/junk shop yesterday to see what they had. I brought home these 3 items. I spyed the pink cabinet(it's just plywood) right away, but the old vinyl flooring on the top/sides/insides sold me. You never see this old vinyl anywhere. It is a raspberry pink with roses. Not in the best shape, but the price was right. I don't need anymore windows, but of all of them there- this minty green said take me too. Inside was this old shelf(needs a little cleaning up) and the detail were totally me(I didn't get the right angle for you to see it). Met with a friend for lunch, shopped some local stores and I'm off with another friend today for more junk hunting-this is my kind of vacation!

Vintage Pink Mirror

I saw this pink mirror at the antique mall where I have a booth last week. I liked it, but didn't need it, so I thought I'll pass on this one. Went home and thought about it. It's those little drawers with the glass knobs. If I don't get it, I'll regret it-but if I do-what will I do with it. Went back in and put some money down on it. When I went back the same dealer had this tin ceiling medallion- now what am I going to do with both of them? That's the story of my life-but eventually-it will have a purpose!

Pink Flowers around the Yard

One of my favorite antique roses-seven sisters-next to the outhouse-very fragrant In the herb garden-this one is almost done blooming-very fragrant and old
A petite variety-climber-lots of little pink roses- didn't think it would do so well-I was wrong

A close up

Two more roses to plant to replace some I lost over the winter

The front of our house-there are at least 5 more peonies bushes not shown
We brought these back from my husband's grandparent's farm-all pink and two white
A close up of the pink just starting to open up

Trellises in My Yard

My favorite-pink-bought from Forevermore Antiques at the Brocton Red Barn.
These are 3 old screen savers from screen doors-I use them in my fairy rose garden.

I bought 4 trellises from a friend's garage sale-ready to be painted-white? This trellis is a cast iron window gate from an old building on the Oakland square.

My husband built this for me a few years after we were married. I walk-thru between the orange tiger lilies and an entrance to my white garden. It used to have white clematis growing on it.

I bought this one from the FFA kids-the kids used to make these every year.

Another one from the FFA kids.

On one side of the outhouse.

The back of the outhouse-recently repaired.

The other side of the outhouse.

The side of the smokehouse.

Love this one-bought last year at a friend's garage sale.

I love old trellises. I love the architecture of them. I use them all over my yard. Sometimes I have something growing on them, but most of the time- I love them just for their unique look.
