Some of the pink at the shop

I love pink, LOVE, LOVE. I changed my home decor to taupes and creams, you know, the same thing everybody is doing. I made sure I kept a pink room, I called it the princess room, the room I dream of having when I was a child and never could. I gave myself the room, in my adulthood, you see, is never too late. At the shop I saw a huge decline in my pink seeker costumers; because of that I have to resort to buy what sells. Now that I have my own building and financially I can be more relaxed I decided I should catered to myself first, have around me the stuff that inspire me and make me happy. Don't get my wrong, I love tea stained and lace everything, ecrus and whites mixed with browns and blacks for the french look, but pink...Enjoy it.









                                I decided since I love these bunnies so much I will bling them up, add some                    
                                 Christmas stuff and keep them around.

                                                          Just too cute to put away.


                                           This pincushion doll I bought in honor of my great grandmother,
                                           who came  from Spain.



                This pillow is the pillow with a history. Six years ago my mom move to Texas and lived with us for a year. Her way to stay busy was sewing a lot for me. The fabric in this pillow was discontinued and after I sold my last pillow I could not locate the remaining yardage. I love the print and I always regretted selling the last one. About 5 months ago I visited one of the local antique malls and to my surprise my mom's pillow was for sale, for 10 dollars more than I sold it for. You guess the rest, I bought my mom's pillow back.







                                                  This thing is  a mercury glass chandelier.
                    

                                                                Old ornaments and garland.

                                                                Pink, green and red, me like it.
 I may not have the time to blog next week since we are down to the wire with the shop grand opening. If that is the case receive my wishes for a blessed Thanksgiving holiday. Thanks to Ms Beverly at How Sweet the Sound for hosting Pink Saturday for us.Blessings, Marta.

I like the creams and the whites too but deep at heart I need a little color sprinkled in, especially pink. I love pink in my bedroom. I love the story behind the pillow and it is gorgeous! Happy Pink and have a great weekend!

I love pinks too, they can be a hard sell...white is just more versatile! Maybe in heaven we can have pink shops next to each other. Love it all.
