Pink Redo



Pink Saturday sponsored by Beverly at How Sweet the Sound! I have never seen so many participants for a meme before!" . I told last week that I was running out of pink, but it turns out that I am not looking hard enough! I need to start taking more pictures of all my treasures and categorize them. Good luck with that! :)
A couple of Saturdays ago, I found a candleabra that I knew would not stay in its brassy shape.

So, after purchasing some spray paint called 'Ballet Slipper", this is what it looks like now...........

Much better? I think so. Hope you do too.
One more little pink to help the Saturday get started.....

Hope everyone has a great Pink Saturday! Just finished my coffee and am dressed and waiting to go yard saling!! There are 2 church and 3 community yard sales on my list. Does anyone know if there is a "Yard Sale Saturday" meme anywhere? Someone needs to start one. Ta ta for now!

Hi, Charlotte!

I have to laugh about posting some other color than pink. I tend to go pink, but then I might cheat and add another color or two. Today, I posted a good bit of pink! I made sure my background color was theme appropriate. LOL!

I hope you find lots of good stuff at your sale. Wish I were going with you!

Happy Pink Saturday...

XO,

Sheila :-)

Hi Charlotte,
To play devils advocate here...I have on my blog posted a picture of something which is pink, a lamp that I got when I was 10, she is not as pink as she once was back in the 60's, and when I took a picture of her, she came out looking tan, or light brown..If I had posted this, you would have thought I too was a wee bit off color...but she is pink, faded but pink. Now if they posted something blue,green,or red then I could see your angst about this, they were not playing the meme right. justified. Looking forward to your next thrift shop excursion as always..Have a great w/e.

Charlotte I must say I stopped going to Pink Sat and just hope the blogs I follow post something! I found it very frustrating. Just not for me and I am a life long PINK girl. That said love what you did with that candleholder! I will be getting some of that paint. Brand? if you know it? please..... Have a great yard sale day.

That turned out really pretty. I was just looking at Ballet Slipper in Wal Mart the other day. Love the color...I just might need to paint something for my girl's room.
