Pink Saturday

Hello everyone~ I hope all my American friends had a lovely Thanksgiving!

If you want to see lots of pink, then you should make your way over to see Beverly. She hosts a fabulous pink party every weekend. Thank you Beverly!

 I have been busy decorating as I'm sure many of you have been too. I had this little brown cardboard house {cottage} which I got at Michaels ages ago and I've been meaning to paint it up for Christmas.

It finally got a coat of white paint and then the roof got a coat of pink. Why I did that, I don't know because I ended up putting SNOW on it anyway which covered up most of the pink roof. There is a pink door however. I sprinkled glitter on the roof, the window sills, and the door. Then I glued on a mini topiary.

I sprinkled 'snow' in the bottom of the cloche and set my little cottage in the center of it.


This is the front of the little cottage. You can still see some pink on the roof peeking out.


One side...


The other side....



I put my big Christmas tree up in the family room this year so my little Christmas tree stands on a table in a corner of our front room. I decorated it with pink and gold sheer ribbon, silver and pink balls and glittery birdies.


Mr. Bunny sits under the branches in the snow. He is waiting for a friend to come along.

Ah, there she is! A demure little bunny I got from sweet Celestina Marie.





Certain times of the day and the tree looks pink.


The sweetest little Christmas fairy adorns the top.


Thank you so much for coming by to see my pinks today. I wish you all a lovely pink and joyful weekend.

You did an awesome job with your little cottage and it, too, is perfect under the cloche....So pretty!

I started my decorating on the porch, but haven't started inside yet!
Have a happy weekend!

The cottage looks like a few wee faeries would live there...and I wouldn't mind have a larger model of it for myself. It's been a while since I've had time for a visit and have missed all your loveliness. Hope you've been well and will be enjoying your Christmas preparations.♥♫

too many lovelies for me to comment on each! I loved my stroll through each one. ~pink hugs~

Hi Sandi,
I can see you are getting into the swing of things with your Christmas decorating-so pretty!
I am guessing you won't be sorry to see this snow melt with the warmer temps coming this weekend.

Enjoy your weekend,
Carolyn

HI Sandi,
I LOVE your pinks ;) :) I'm not sure if we'll be buying a live Christmas tree this year or not. My aunt has this really cool fibreoptic Christmas tree. It glows in different colors :) :)

I think your little snow house is really cute :) :) Oh, speaking of which, my aunt brought out this Christmas wreath that my great-grandmother made decades ago. I'll have to post a photo of it on my blog sometime :) in any case, it's a wreath of flowers covered in gold glitter with pink holly berries and green leaves, in green glitter. Oh, guess what the flowers were made out of? Cardboard egg cartons. In any case, once December 1st rolls around, I'll start bringing out the Christmas ornaments :) Have a good weekend. Love and hugs from the ocean shores of California, Heather :)

LV said...

Like and loved seeing so many pretty decorations you have. I like the little house best.

Sares said...

Lovely tree! I got some little ceramic white houses like yours at the Goodwill a few days ago I want to try to fancy up. They have quite a bit more detail though so I'm not sure how they will take the glitter. For 99 cents I figure I can afford to play around. Happy Pink Saturday and have a terrific weekend!

Jean said...

Happy pink day. Very sweet tree. Loving visiting and seeing what you're up to.

Simone said...

What beautiful shades of pink! Your little house in the cloche is gorgeous... I just love all the possibilities that they offer for decorating. Just lovely!!!

Hi an \d happy pink Saturday. I love that little christmas house and the little pink is adorable. I see you changed your banner. I have that cup and soucer of Royal Albert Moss Rose. Don´t have the teapot which is gorgeous. Last week we visited a niece of us and to my surprise she had a new dinnerservice Rose chintz. I immediately thought about you. I have wanted that service for ages but I thought it wasn´t for sale any more. It is so beautiful.
Have a nice weekend.
Riet

Hi Sandi, Pink roof and all your little house is adorable in the cloche. I love your pretty tree and the bunnies top it off. Do you visit the Stone Rabbit? I think you do. Smile. You have bunnies in common.

Happy Pink Saturday,

Sandi these are the most precious pinks! I love the way you painted the little house and how it's sitting under the cloche. Your tree is also so pretty. I have a picture of the little flocked tree with the pink ornaments my mother made for me as my header right now. I'm very sentimental about pink and white trees!

Love how your cottage turned out. Can't you imagine sitting by the fire sipping hot cocoa in a little place like that? Happy Pink Saturday!

How pretty this all is. I never seem to know what to put under a cloche and this is perfect. The little house is so cute;like a miniture fairy cottage. And bunnies, who can resist a bunny.
