Pink Katrina doll for Pink Saturday

Last week I posted a couple of Dia de los Muertos corsages with Katrina dolls...I am dressing them a bit differently this week in anticipation of their special day.  This series of corsages should be ready for the upcoming "Haunted Homecoming"

100_0007  This lovely lady has a lace shawl and a pretty pink posey in her hand...While her friend has selected an outfit in basic black...


It's not exactly Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany's, but for a skeleton in her best lace dress, she really shines.

Catrina Black 

And look at her cute little bag, isn't she well appointed?

Another of their friends showed up in vintage green paisley...I call this one Vera Bradley...she needs to be pinned on one of the new black and green VB bags just out this fall. 


Haunted Homecoming wouldn't be complete without a giant mum...just look at all that pink and orange


While you are enjoying Pink Saturday with Beverly,

the lovely ladies and I will be at Wimberley Trade Day...the weather should be great with that first touch of fall in the early morning air.  Enjoy your day and have a pink week.

I love that. I thought your corsages were just perfect, but this is over the top perfection. Happy Pink Saturday, Char

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
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.
