I spent some time, Friday morning, at the Nashville Flea Market. I was going through a box of sewing articles when I noticed something sticking out from under the cloth that covered one of the tables. I lifted the cloth and saw, what looked like, a frame. The proprietress came over and said that the frame had held a mirror, but it had been broken as they carried it into the building, so she had tucked the frame under the table. I asked if I could buy it. She promptly answered yes!
This is what it looked like when I bought it.
I had a plan......I searched through my fabric stash and came up with this piece of pink raw silk. I think the color compliments the gold frame and I like the texture.
Now all I have to do is add some of my favorite things...... and I have a sweet, pink memory board.
Whew! Now I'm going to slip on my two-toned, pink readers, and enjoy one of my favorite magazines.
Have a great weekend,
A big Thank You to sweet Beverly for hosting "Pink Saturday." Visit her http://howsweetthesound.typepad.com/ for links to more wonderful pink posts

I saw an add today that read….”the travel season is upon us, make your plans now.” As far as I’m concerned, any season is travel season. Just let me pack my camera and I’m ready to go. The world is full of amazing things to photograph.

I've arranged pink gerbera daisies, in an old ironstone pitcher. The shell pink dinnerware is "Versailles" by Fitz and Floyd. The pink brocade napkins are from Waterford. The bread plates, with the pink Rugosa Rose pattern, were a flea market find. Cut glass plates and berry bowl, and vintage crystal wine glasses, filled with champagne punch, complete the tablescape.
This antique English, horn handled knife with silver fittings, will make short work of slicing the French baguette.
All is ready......................
slip off your pretty straw hat, with vintage pink millinery bouquet, and ENJOY!

How do you pass the time while waiting in line? You read the book that you brought to be signed
As the line moved closer, and Miley came into view, Molly turned to the girl behind her, and said “I can’t believe it’s really her.” The other girl replied “ I can’t believe it’s really her, either.” Then the two held hands and jumped up and down as they squealed with excitement.
It’s Molly’s turn!
Spring Art Hop at Cheekwood Botanical Gardens
Caroline, Molly and Elizabeth
Molly, who loves all creatures, also caught a moth, rescued a turtle, and found an inch worm.
We have been working on a dog collage, but we haven't finished it yet.
Gotta go.....we have more fun stuff to do.

I'm eager to shed my dark winter clothing for light spring colors, as well.
Here are two pretty old pink gowns from my collection. The first gown has fabric flowers with rhinestone centers, outlining the waist and strapless bodice.
The second pink gown, has a beautiful watercolored floral motif on the bodice and skirt.....and a lavender sash.
I love pairing pink with red.....like this needlepoint pillow, with the pink cabbage rose, on my red sofa.
And here is a little rabbit pin, from the 50's, that I found at an antique store.

This is my Easter basket from my childhood. It survived my teen years by being the place where I stashed my make-up and hair items. I love the shape of this old basket. The colors have faded, but the pink grass adds some interest.
What color grass do you prefer in your basket?
Some pink roses from my garden.
