Pink Saturday in the Garden

Today I’m sharing an unusual birdfeeder that I bought several years ago…it’s been in the garage because I didn’t want it to get weathered…You’re right, there are no birds to feed in the garage so I broke down and “planted” it in a side bed by some sweet pink China Doll roses…an old recycled, repurposed kitchen pot spiffed up with, what else? Pink paint!

Don’t you just love what creative people can do to “Pinken” up our world?  Stop in to see Miss Beverly  at How Sweet the Sound and see who’s joining the parade of pink today.

Most unusual and cute way of recyled cookware! I'm sure the birds will appreciate the cooked bird seed...or at least the thought! Happy PS...Sue

Thank you, Sweetpea, for your visit to Lawn Tea today, and for your kind words!

I love your section of the country---my Sis and her family live in SA, and I've been there MANY times.

And I also love your sweet pink birdie feeder.

Flea Market Finds...sounds like my whole house and yard...

Milk Glass Collection

Milk Glass Collection
Who knew that a 25 cent flea market find would unleash such a collecting frenzy? I never pay more than a dollar unless it's a really nice piece. They are great grouped with a single daisy in each.

These used to be inexpensive florist vases in the 50's and 60's. Everyone's Grandmother had bunches.

Mexicana Dishes

Mexicana Dishes
My sister found these for me at Bussy's Flea Market in San Antonio, Texas. I had seen pictures in her Fiesta reference book. Mexicana was also made by Homer Laughlin in the 30's. I had been looking for several years without ever finding even a single piece when she found the set...with a promise to hold it for us, she came running to find me and I bought the entire set...60+ pieces for $50.


I've added to the set over the years, but the price and experience will never match that first amazing find.

Vintage Kitchen Hutch

Vintage Kitchen Hutch
When my hubby found this hutch it was Pepto pink and I was not 100% sure about it. But with a new red back and fresh white paint and refurbished hardware, it became one of my favorite pieces.

Nancy made me save the vine

Nancy made me save the vine
The vine and flowers painted on the inside were in such bad shape that I was ready to remove it all. Nancy -My Crafty Little Page convinced me to keep it and after some touch-up work, I'm glad I listened to her. My husband restores vintage Cushman motorscooters and he tries to make everything "mint" condition again. The Shabby Chic movement came along just in time to keep me from making some terrible mistakes.
