Pink Saturday

She sees seashells down by the seashore......... and then she brings them home and adds sparkles!Hello bloggerettes ~ Welcome to my Pink Saturday!
Thank you Beverly for bringing us your fun meme every week. Every Pink Saturday we get to strut our pink stuff and we pinkies do love the colour pink!

Today, I'm sharing a seashell centerpiece I have sitting on my coffee table. I LOVE glitter so these shells got gussied up. I just love when the sunlight hits them because they sparkle! The star fish I painted aqua and added some glitter. Some of the shells are pink and others are white but most of them have glitter on them. All of these I gathered from our beaches here on the Island along with the sand. The star fish came from Michaels.

Let's add some pearls.......I know there are other ladies out there addicted to glitter as well. M at Tales From An OC Cottage loves to glitter up everything from seashells to little birdies. Some of us have brought this addiction to glitter from our childhoods and I'm one of them!

Can you see the sparkles? Wish I had a better camera but anyway, you get the idea!

The fish vase my middle son made for me in High School and I am so happy to have it! I know some of you pinkies out there have this same fish vase including Sissie at Sissie's Shabby Cottage. In fact, why not pay her a visit too and check it out!

Yesterday my sweet hubby came home with a surprise for me. I had seen this bunny a couple of weeks ago and bought it for someone else. I made such a fuss over his cuteness that my hubby made a mental note to go back and get me one. Isn't he a darling for doing that?

Do you see what the inscription on the bunny says? "Happiness is....Life filled with Love."

Bunny has just a blush of pink on his sweet cheeks and his cute nose.

Well, pinkies, those are my offerings for this week. Please go see Beverly
and her lineup of pink participants, you will be glad you did! I have a wedding to go to this afternoon but I will make my rounds later. Have a wonderful pink weekend everyone and God bless you!

Please join me on Tuesday for Tea Time Tuesday.

Sharing from my heart~ Sandi


  1. Happy Pink Sandi...
    What a beautiful share today. I have to tell you I just adore all the glittery sea shells and star fish. I think I may just have to add some to my assortment. I mean we all like a little glitter in our lifetimes right?

    Your DH was so precious to go back and get you this bunny. She is so pretty. I love her little verse. Just the element of surprise when you look at her. She looks perfect perched up on the stack of books.

    Thank you for sharing. I hope your day is as beautiful as the share you had today.

    Country hugs sweetie...Sherry

  3. Hi Sandi,
    I love seashells and if I can sprinkle on some pretty glitter, then I love them more!!

    Look at that sweet bunny. Do you know I collect bunnies too and I am really picky about them too. I would take him in a heartbeat. How sweet of your husband.

    Thank you so much for mentioning me in your post today. I am honored. Our tastes are very similar and I remember you telling me that you had the same fish pitcher.Don't you just love it.

    big ole hugs to you!

  8. I think that is a beautiful way to display shells. I would imagine they are lovely when the light hits them and they have been glittered. That's a great idea. I may have to try it myself. Ya gotta love a cute bunny. Happy Pink Saturday, Char

  13. HI Sandi...I knew this would be a good post...and I may have to join the Pink Saturday group...Red is my first favorite color. Pink is my second. You had me laughing at the word "sparkles" :) :) :)
    What a sweet hubby to go buy that bunny for you!!!
    I love weddings...have a great time at this wedding!!! Love and hugs from Oregon, Heather :)

  14. Oh my goodness! That bunny is just too adorable for words! And I really love the way you have put together those glittery shells and sand.

    I have a question for you ... my dear husband and I are thinking of visiting PEI for the first time this year but we can't go away until September. Is it too cold there in September? If so, we'll wait for another year when we can go away in the summer.

  15. Happy Pink Saturday Sandi dearest.
    Love all these seashells.
    Pretty and summery.

    Enjoy your weekend.

  29. What a pretty pink post for today. I think that sea shell tray is the neatest.

    I LOVE the ocean so much, so I think your seashore centerpiece is wonderful. And, of course, glitter is a MUST.

    I love your bunny. He's such a cutie. Very nice of hubby to surprise you with that.

    Have a lovely, blessed weekend.


  31. I can understand why you fell in love with the bunny. How cute. Have a great Pink Saturday.
