As promise, pink stuff for my pinky friends

Oh my God, what a week, tomorrow some much needed rest. I have been chasing sales and trying to replenished the merchandise at the shop. One problem I am confronting, I'm selling faster than I can replace. See, I don't buy market stuff, everybody in the other shops got that, I like to have one of the kind stuff, when is gone is gone. I finding myself driving farther  and coming home empty handed. Not good at all. The market in this area is so depleted. I can not resort to garage sales since is baby town or stinky clothes deals. We don't carry those. We need to hit the mother load soon, if not we are going to be in serious trouble. I'm hoping is the effect of having one of the coldest winters ever, 3 inches of snow in Central Texas? I'm ready for Spring and the big shows, junk paradise for us. So just to get in the spirit I took some pictures of Spring around the shop. Hope you enjoy.
Stuff in the pink and green room


Bunnies in the pink and aqua room

Vignette in pink and lavender


My poor pink feather tree with Spring ornaments. This one is really pretty in person, bad photos


Love the pink bottles, I might altered them, maybe not since the shade of pink is just beautiful as it is.

Some pink roses things


A fushia chiffon dress and hat,  60's?  If I was that size I will wear it in a heart beat.
Ok my friends, its almost 9:00 and I'm beat. You take care of yourselves and have a blessed week. Don't forget to visit the other pink friends and thanks to our host Ms. Beverly @ How sweet the sound. Blessings, Marta.

i know what you mean about yard sales in the area. i hit two today and both were a waste of my time.

however, i did go to an estate sale in an older part of town (killeen) and found some pretty cool stuff. there's good junk in the area, you just have to sniff it out! haha

hugs to you dear lady!

Glad you are selling though! :) I know what you mean...the market is not what it could be. I do know Paply's is having their yard sale Saturday, might be worth checking out.

Marta, that is a GREAT problem to have! I'm not surprised you're selling so much, you have fabulous taste.

Yes, I really hope to see you in Warrenton!

Thank you so much for the prayers, it really does mean a lot.

Have a wonderful Wednesday,
