It's Pink Saturday's 2nd Birthday Celebration ~ Woo Hoo!!

Hello everyone, and welcome to another wonderful Pink Saturday, hosted by Beverly of How Sweet the Sound and how wonderful she is Celebrating the 2nd Anniversary of this FABULOUS event. This is my 3rd time particating in this wonderful event, and I absolutely love it!! I've been able to meet some wonderful new ladies here in blogland. So, Thank You & Happy 2nd Birthday Beverly!!!

I want to remind everyone of my 2 sweet Giveaways that I have going on right now....you can click on either link to them on my sidebar. Remember, they each end June 18th, and I will be announcing the winners on June 19th :)

Also, I have marked down on my items on Etsy 20% for this Memorial Day weekend, so just click on that link to take you there. This sale goes until Monday.

Okay, now on to what I have for you for this Pink Saturday! First, I have 4 pictures for you of my Living Room. The top Wallpaper is a pretty pink tonal paper, and the bottom is a lovely rose covered print, with borders of more pink roses.



For now, I have a white Matelasse that covers the sofa, I intend to one day get a slipcover for it :)



Yes, we have a BIG BLACK BOX!! It's okay, I really enjoy watching tv on it :)



We don't have an actual fireplace, but I'd seen in magazines where you can put up a fireplace surround and conceal that fact with pretty lace panels, so.....that's what I have done, and I LOVE IT!!!

Below is a closer look for you :)



These next 8 photos are of some really pretty items with handpainted pink roses that I have bought from some very talented artists/sellers on Ebay.











This beautiful painted window I bought in an Antique Mall in Traverse City, Michigan a few years ago, and when I first saw it, I knew it was coming home with me, lol :) After all, I do LOVE roses :)



And lastly, is this GORGEOUS original painting by the very talented artist Cindy Ellis. I purchased this from a seller on ebay a couple of years ago. I can't believe she was wanting to part with it! Me? I NEVER will :)



Thanks so much for stopping by, and do be sure to wish Beverly a "Happy 2nd Pink Saturday Birthday ". Also, check out all the other wonderful blogs participating in this wonderful Pink event :) And have a wonderful Memorial Day weekend everyone!!

The house if adorable and PINK and yes, you can have a mantle without a fireplace, sweetpea! Go look at my house at the top of my blog just under the logo entitled "My House". It's one of the new "Pages" blogger initiated just a few months ago. It has my family room where I added a faux fireplace mantel and it works really well. Yours is stunning. I love the top part.

I love your wall paper and border!! And everything in the room for that matter. I love you faux fireplace!! Very nice!!

Your room is so pretty, Brenda. I just love it....your mattelasse- covered sofa, your white fireplace and mantels with their white lace coverings. All so pretty! I look forward to a time when we can uncover our white damask sofas and i can have a shabby chic living room. Right now, our big brown dog likes the sofa, so it's covered with a faux-suede slipcover. Happy Pink Saturday, I loved your post.

Hi Brenda,

Happy PiNk to you...I love the faux fireplace...I, too, have seen this done in the magazines and I want to do it too...trying to figure out where though..I have so many windows..I've thought of putting a mantle at the head of my bed. I just saw that done recently.

I hope you are having a great weekend..

The PiNk party will be drifting throughout the week..don't miss all the divine virtual desserts!

I've created a celebration button for all the pinkies if you'd like to snag it.

Hugs,
Stephanie ♥

Shabby Kim said...

Your living room is just gorgeous Brenda. It's like a garden full of beautiful roses. I could spend hours and hours in your living room just admiring all of your pretty things. Isn't it horrible that all electronics these days are black? I love my TV too, but I'd love it a whole lot more if it were white so it would fit in better with my decor. Same goes with my computer which I call the "big black monster" in my pastel home office. It takes up a good chunk of my desk and sticks out like a sore thumb surrounded as it is with all my pale blues and pinks. To bad electronic companies don't think of us women when they manufacture thier equipment. I bet if they offered them in white as well as black, the white would become a big seller.

Beverly said...

Happy Pink Saturday, Brenda. We have been pinking together for a short while now, and I want to thank you for everything you do to make Pink Saturday special. I am so glad you decided to participate.

Thank you for the birthday wishes. You have so many pretty pinks in your home. You are a true pink lover.
