I have been so busy this week. Those of you know me through my blog know how hard I have been working at getting my life back on track. A year ago I was still in the nursing home rehabilitating and learning to walk all over again and hold my own weight up. Today I am happy to share so much good news with my PINK Girlfiends! I moved into my very own little apartment in Cooperstown, NY. I had been searching for weeks for something modest and affordable and God was so good to me. So the better part of the last week I have been shopping for so much PINK!!!!!! I am decorating it in shabby cottage pink chic! My sis' and I are making a lot of things for it and soon you will see the amazing talent she has, she made me the most beautiful assemblage project to commemorate my rebirth into this world, and of course it is pink! Here it is...
You won't believe it all started with a piece of PINK fabric, was covered in antique lace, bejeweled with beads and dainty little frames in ivory and gilt, embroidered, a fabulous chic woman holding a book (Vanessa says the woman reminded her of me, as I am always reading). It is so girly and PINK. We are going with the Marie Antoinette pinks, blues, and ivories as a the color pallette for my apartment. I have been thrifting all over Upsate NY. And have picked up some extraordinary pieces. I didn't get the chance to photograph all of them so next week you will see a great deal more of the treasures I have found!
This is one of a set of three little candle votives Vanessa assembled for me. I picked them up at a dollar store, but they look like a million dollars, what do you think? Visit my sis' at Stitches 'N Stuff! Or her ETSY shop!
I also found this beautiful grouping a flowers half off at the General Store in Cooperstown
(BASEBALL HALL OF FAME TOWN)
and so we put it all together in this crystal clear vase.
I just love the way they look on my table!
with migrant workers in the tri-county regions of Oneida, Herkimer, and Otsego Counties through BOCES, NY. I start July 1st and am so very excited about this opportunity. I am just tickled PINK!
I have a family wedding to go to today and will be traveling so this has to be a short post again, sorry!
Next week will be back to normal and I will have a few more poems to share with you all.
Please visit my new pink Saturday blogging friend, Patti at Patti Ann's blog formerly Of Days and Dreams and just changed to Fill My Cup...With Beauty.
Bev has asked each of us to sponsor a fellow blogger and so I thought why not sponsor a PINK newbie this week! Patti is a Christian, wife, and a home schooling mom. I too am a teacher (reading specialist) and I know she is devoted to her children's success and how difficult yet rewarding it is to teach your children! Praises to you Patti! Her blog is lovely, uplifting and filled with inspiration. I so enjoyed browsing through it and will be back there often. Please visit her too!
Well girls, fill your coffee mugs or ice teas! And blog around the world today! Happy PINK!!!!
