Shades of Autumn

"Autumn bursts into the season with a symphony of color. Swirling leaves of crimson, amber, and gold against a background of crisp blue sky, exciting our senses and inviting us to grab hold and enjoy every minute… before it slips away until next year. " (written by Joyce Lucas of Make Mine Pink)
Friday, October 22nd, the boutiques of Make Mine Pink will be displaying "Shades of Autumn". .

A Tisket, A Tasket

I have a basket 'collection'...amongst my many other treasures. I love that I can use them to stash away different items and organize my small cottage. I kept ribbons in this basket for ages and then, one day, I made a decision to place it in my powder room to hold my vanity items. I love it! Such a simple change in the room and it makes a big difference! Plus the lid was the perfect place to display my many silk roses that I love to show off (from Meadow Street). Romantic Simplicity. Viola!

Treasures For The Bed and Bath

"Treasures for the bed and bath" will be displayed at the boutiques of Make Mine Pink tomorrow, Friday, October 8th. Creative decorating using vintage items help us think 'outside the box'. Above I have used a vintage cherished teapot whose lid is no where to be seen and I keep my makeup brushes, etc. on display for easy access. It brings a smile to my face when I see my teapot.

As I get ready to end my day, I draw a bath and ponder what type of herbal concoctions I can muster up with my bath selections from Switzerland. Perhaps I will do a relaxing bath of seeweed and watermelon foaming bath and add Melissa (Lemon Balm) bath essence into it for sweet dreams. Come to think of it....this is exactly what I will do.....see you later.....sweet dreams.
