Cupcakes and Polkadots

" All things whimsical have a place in our lives and each brings about smiles and wisps of childhood memories. Whether it is a fanciful collection or a whimsical element added to your decor, the hint of fun is a welcoming greeting to all. A ceramic cupcake, sitting amongst our heirloom teacups, a cupcake pillow, tossed on the chair by the bed, a set of brightly painted polkadot mugs, for afternoon hot cocoa by the fire, all an aide-memoire, to dream, and to remember.It only takes a moment to think back to a special day, remembering the things that delight and refresh our senses. And if you need a little help building your whimsical collection, the boutiques at Make Mine Pink would be a great place to start. Joyce Lucas, FounderMake Mine Pink"

Cherished Heirlooms for Make Mine Pink Friday

This week at the boutiques of Make Mine Pink, Friday, September 10th, we will be showing our "Cherished Heirlooms". Above is a collectible brooch from Sarah Coventry, from the "Americana" collection. My dear Mom always held Sarah Coventry home parties when I was growing up and when she passed on I lovingly continued her passion for this beautiful collectible jewelry. Now my collection is vast. What are some of your treasured memories of your family's "cherished heirlooms"?
