Sunday Favorites... The Romance of "PINK"!

I've anxiously have waited for you arrival… I can't contain myself much longer…
The anticipation is just too much…
Can you guess what it is…?

Don't you wonder what is wrapped so carefully inside that tissue paper…?

I am so excited; I can hardly stand it…

But I do want to share this with you so a few more photos and then…

Inside the package is a lovely card…

What does it say…?

Isn't she cute…Hello Sweetie…?

Are you ready for a peek…?

There's a hint in the message of the card…

What is that …have you guessed yet…?

See the pretty rosettes and the pretty buttons…

My very own "PINK" burlap pillow designed by Sissie at "Sissie's Shabby Cottage"!

I squealed with delight when I saw this pillow showcased on Sissies' blog. I couldn't believe that she managed to find burlap in this beautiful color she calls, "peachy pink." I loved the sweetness of the design, and couldn't resist it. I loved how she added the delicate white ruffles and the darling rosettes that are accented with buttons.

It was love at first sight…I couldn't get to Sissies' etsy shop; (sissiecakes)fast enough. I really thought I'd be too late…that this darling pillow would slip away…before I had a chance to order…

But I was fast and was able to scoop it up before someone else…

Don't you hate it when that happens…? Someone beats you to it…?

I love the pillow displayed with my Salvation Army finds…

The pink plate in the front was $1.99 and the plate behind it was only $3.99. The candles sticks were .99cents each. These were found on one of my first thrift shopping trips…I'm hooked now…

I love the curves of the plates…they look so pretty all snuggles up next to my sweet pillow…

So soft and delicate…

What a pretty bouquet…

Happy little flowers, I'm glad I was able to bring them home!

"PINK" Wave petunia's waiting to be planted outside; I love to buy plants and enjoy them inside before planting. They make great centerpieces for your table and you get to use them twice…once inside the house for a few weeks and then outdoors for the summer.

Petunias are so soft and delicate, just happy flowers…

This romantic pillow will eventually make its home in my bedroom…

Thank you sweet "SISSIE" I love my pillow and will always think of you when I see it.

if you get a chance visit Sissies' etsy shop; "SISSIECAKES"!

I hope your day is filled with "SUNSHINE" thank you for visiting; I really appreciate each of your "SWEET" comments.

  8. This is so sweet! I don't think I've ever seen burlap this color, either! I didn't know such a thing existed, and I'm so happy for you that you go it. Major cuteness!

    Hope you have a wonderful week ahead...

  9. My first post bombed so here goes a second try...

    Flower, you have had some great finds from Goodwill! I can see why you were enamored with that burlap pillow. It is the softest shade of pink. Thank you for visiting my blog. I am glad it inspires you. You have paid me one of the nicest complements. I also love the name of your blog and I have now become one of your followers. I look forward to seeing your other Goodwill treasures. Keep your flag-a-wavin' Joan

  10. I love it all. So pretty! Be blessed. Cindy
