Crystal, Posies, and Pumpkins for Pink Saturday

Hello everyone. I hope you all had a good week. While I was in New Brunswick a couple of weeks ago, I found a couple of little crystal vases while thrifting.

The first one is a lead crystal vase and it's quite heavy. I paid five dollars for it and it is perfect for holding a little bouquet of fluffy pink  carnations. It looks really pretty when the sun hits it.

Then there is this little bud vase with what looks like the cornflower pattern on it. I paid ninety-nine cents for it. It's very sweet and delicate holding a single pink rose. 

The vases aren't pink but I hope you enjoyed seeing my posies.

Some pumpkins I painted and sprinkled with fairy dust, just because...

Love little glittery pumpkins!

Do visit Beverly to see more pinks. She has quite a line-up of pinkies every week. I hope you all have a very Happy Pink Saturday weekend.

Sharing from my heart~ Sandi

  24. Hi Sandi,
    I love your little crystal vase with the pretty pink carnations!

    Quite a day yesterday wasn't it?You were probably happy that it wasn't in the white form though.


  25. A genuine lead crystal vase of fine quality and craftsmanship is really one of a kind and something a lover of glass art would appreciate tremendously. These pieces would make a lovely gift or display piece for your home. Thanks a lot.
