Show and Tell Monday Sept. 29th

Here is a litle peek at some of the precious wares I was getting ready to pack to take with me to Williamsburg for my Business Recognition Award Display. I have to tell you, I was amazed at everyone's imagination for creating their displays. There were a lot of oohs and aaahs going on in that room. Eileen of Forget Me Not Dreams was the grand prize winner. Congratulations once more Eileen!! Fabulous. For my display I wanted to create a lady's vanity as she has come home from an evening out and is preparing for sleep. I hope to show you my display picture soon. In the meantime, enjoy going to the boutiques today for Show and Tell. It is a wonderful way to begin the week.

Stitches in Time for Pink Friday, September 26th

Stitches in Time; tiny stitches holding the hem of a linen napkin, stitches intertwined to make the most delicate lace, stitches crocheted by the smallest hook, stitches through canvas strengthened by wool yarn. It's these stitches created out of love that adorn a bedspread crocheted for a granddaughter's wedding, a sampler commemorating the birth of a child, a fine table cloth made to entertain the most important guests and family at Thanksgiving. Each of these stitches has survived the test of time and is so much more appreciated today as gifts from our past and treasures of our future. Join the Boutiques at Make Mine Pink for our "Stitches in Time" Pink Friday event, September 26. You will find the most cherished item stitched with time and love.

Show and Tell Monday Bling

My Mom is home from her MMP Retreat and I will not let her leave me again. Not now, not ever! My sweet "Velcro" kitty snuggled on top of my still to be unpacked suitcase.
Our very first Make Mine Pink "Getting Down of Business" Retreat signage. B-e-a-u-t-i-f-u-l !

We love polka dots!!! Kristi, Polka Dot Rose and me, Susie, The Polka Dot Rose

Getting ready to enter the Pink Gala Dinner, Michelle (my wonderful roomate, think she loves bunnies?), Sharon and me, Susie!

Check out these foo foo sneakers! My bling beauties, with lace and roses on the back.

Here is a front up close view of my hard work. Did I have fun or what?

Viola! The finished product awaiting judgment. These little purties danced their feet off from table to table trying to get the vote for best sneak blingage. These little MMP pink sneaks will go into the glass cabinet along with my MMP tiara. I am starting to feel like a princess around here!

Well, that is my show and tell for today. The Retreat was fabulous, fun, filling! Delight from start to finish. I cannot wait to see everyone's pictures and the pictures the photographer took. Stay tuned...

Show and Tell Monday

I fell in love with this sweet porcelain vanity/dresser trio when I was out looking for treasures one day. Did you have a vanity growing up? I did and to this day I am attacted to vanity accessories. They are so lady like. Of course! When I was a teen I would sit in front on my vanity doing my hair into different syles, setting my hair for dances, trying on new make up. I was ga ga for make up and still am to this day. I could not wait to get 'permission' to get dolled up. In fact, I was such a sly fox that I put my eye makeup on while on the bus going to school, and came home with it on only to get reprimanded. Oopsie! Ah youth!
Getting back to vanity accessories...I have a personal collection of unique vanity/dresser glass container jars with tops. I call it my glass menagerie. I keep buttons, safety pins, marbles (in cases I lose my marbles!), cotton balls, q-tips, etc. in them. They are a great catch all for small items and great for instant organization. They are spread out all over my home.
Don't be vain...check out those vanity accessories and bring the beauty back into your dressing room/vanity table. You can see this set on my Little Pink Boutique, The Polka Dot Rose,
