My favorite things in pink

    Since I have been sooo busy I haven't have the time to take new pictures for this Saturday so I decided to revisit my old Pink Saturday posts and gather a little collection of my pretties. Hope you enjoy and by the way I'm crashing the party.
                         For ever and ever my favorite china and fostoria glasses
                         Capodimonte flowers, can't get enough of them
                    one of my favorite hats, the flowers on this one are to die for
                  My storybook girls. The two on the right look really mean.
               My chalkware half dolls, love them and I'm always looking to add more.
                                You know how much I love pillows

My little darlings
I collect a lot of little children stuff from photos to clothing and everything in between.
Have a happy PS and Ms Beverly please forgive the party crasher. Blessings to you all, Marta.

My favorite things

For many years before I finally figured this blogging thing I was a lurker. I'm still trying to figure it out. I sometimes have blog envy, there, I said it. There are so many breathtakingly beautiful blogs out there. I have gone thru times that I have wonder why blogging at all. I love comments, but I bet that the folks that leave comments would love some kind of response and in my case time is never on my side. I'm thankful and humble by those of you that stop by and leave a kind word but I haven't been able to establish many friendships this way. I know that readers love great giveaways, great pictures and a great read. I don't have any of those.  I have friends that don't understand social networks. Why putting your thoughts, life, home relations out there for everybody to see? I really don't know why, I just know that the blogging time is my down time, it is just me and the three of you that read my blog. It is so inspiring, it gives me hope. I promised myself that if blogging was ever to become another chore I will stop doing it. I only do 2 parties, White Wednesday and Pink Saturday. It have been thru those that I have met most of you. I don't even know where I'm going with this post, I rather have you friends look at some pictures of my favorite things. I went back into my old pictures and pick the things I love creating, owning or simply eye candy. I hope you enjoy.

Simply a good time with friends

      Yesterday my friend Caroll have a social at her new bistro/antique shop. It was a Valentine  party and I don't know how she did it, but her shop was all decked up in red  and Valentine stuff. I was there Friday and she was open Saturday so in a couple in hours she completely rearrange her shop. I want a magic wand like that.

                                      Red velvet cake, which happen to be my favorite cake.
                                      By the way, we all wore comfy pajamas or sportswear. So much fun.
 You have seen my friend Denise before. She is the closest thing to a sister to me. We hang around a lot.
                                                       One of her table vignettes.
                                This window creation was put together using old corsets and girdles.
                                                           Carol  is the lady in the red pajamas.
                          I love this kind of books and have never seen so many of them in one spot.
                                I wanted this so badly for my laundry, could not afford it.

                        It was a ladies only party and this is the first thing you saw coming in the door. I never           look like that, this girls were beautiful.
                All her furniture is one of a kind piece. She carries slipcovers, bed linens, curtains and all kinds                
                of costume pillows  made for her shop.

                       I love this lady. Her name is Ann and she puts together tea parties. She also supplies the Tea Time Texas magazine in our area. If you ever travel to Catalina island you will get to meet her there since she is one of the artists that sell wares during the summer festival.

The antique and art business have been one of the biggest blessings in my life. I just love to be surrounded by such creative and plain nice people. Love them all!!!!!.

Still tweaking

            Today I can finally said my Christmas is finally put away, done, totally.  I went ahead and boarded the attic for much needed storage space. I huff and puff bringing all the stuff up and thankfully I got an extra set of hands helping me. I decided to go with a bird and twigs theme in the kitchen. I brought in a  library ladder from the shop and I intent to display my kitchen linen on it. My husband walk in the kitchen today and the first thing that came out of his mouth was NO, it got to go, you are blocking the view, which really upsets me since there is no view due to overgrown bushes that the mister will not trim. I see a battle coming. I'm leaving the dry twigs in the basket and the branch over my kitchen shelf, I'm just adding eggs in neutral colors.

 These are finds from my trip to Georgetown yesterday. Love it all, I just going to keep the floral door stopper.

                                  The birdcage I found a couple weeks ago for 20.00, a steal.

                                Finally i wanted to show you my heart. This little puppy is growing fast and changing everyday. These days he is able to climb on the furniture and do all sorts of tricks. He still doing some of the bad behavior, I think he knows he got us.

                   This yummy throw that Juju is previewing I got at Ikea yesterday. Love the throw, no so much the store. I don't think I'm going back. It is too modern and not so inspiring to me. Then having to use a map...and the costumer service was horrendous. I thought they sold slipcovers, they do only for their line. Love the linen and that is about it...hold on, I love the closet and organizing  ideas.
                 Stop and visit the other White Wednesday participants @ Faded Charm. Blessings, Marta.
