Seeing Pink

Hello my darling darling friends!! My posting is lacking ... this new job of mine has consumed my time..but my heart beats for the love of blogging. I cannot abide another moment of not recording some tid bit of my life. As posted I was in the mood for red and more red. Well I have determined to make changes...can you guess the desired hue!? Yupper ... tis Pink.
The issue is "I have little to no pink with which to play with"!! I purchased a pink dinner set from Tuesday Morning ... and it just saturated my heart into a pink mode!!! What to do dear friends!! what to do? WELL .... I am going to put some touches here and there with great effort towards that cotten candy color and blend in a bit of the shabby, chippy, used and loved stuff and see what happens. My table with the red seats will need to be changed into white/pink pattern...the red curtains are comming down from the kitchen window and in their place a soft creamy white set of sheers from my corner Dollar General Store $5.25 each. I also have the sweetest little purple type lites that I'm going to put inside the sheers for a soft look. I may use white if the purple interferes with the hue I'm striving for. These little lights are meant for Halloween but I purchased about 6 boxs to use in my sheer canopy's that hang over my beds and daybed in the sunroom. I also bought a pair for my grand-daughters first white Christmas tree. They are sooo tiny and delicate looking when you turn them on. I just love them!!
I may need to pack up a few things from my kitchen for another day as I really do have a ton of red going on. I may take some white and wash it over the red on the laundry room cabinets but I'm not sure about that 100%. I'm thinking a watered down white will allow the grain to show and also some of the red creating a tinted pink... maybe? I promise ...with fingers crossed to post pictures on the endeavor good or bad. I have to tell ya'll the red counter tops??? much to my dismay some of the color lifted as did some of the poloyurithine. I am going to buff again and redo and see if I can correct that issue. Dave (my hubby) did sand and enhance my wood floor in my kitchen so at least that is a big improvement. I have a sweet little crystal type ceiling fixture that is replacing the spot where a ceiling fan hung. It's going to get dressed up more with some crystals and irredescent beads. The ceiling fan is getting a new face lift and I am going to try to alter the fan by using tea cups as lite bulb covers. Wish me luck!! I'm going to need it. Love you all!!

My photo
I love shabby,used,chipped,white,old,vintage, antique,junky gently loved stuff. I would love to dumpster dive but I could get a citation from the county. I adore my dogs, my grand kids and bathing in my tub outside. I am sensitive, eager to make friends although self conscious about it. I am faithful and very very generous at heart. I cry over stuff sentimental and sweet. I adore April Cornell clothing (although I can't afford her stuff)and anything sheer and vintage and loose. I'd live in my pj's and never ever wear a bra again. I love the beach and dancing in public places with my grand darlings and day time babies. I adore my kids and love my hubby although I could kill him a time or two. Yard sales and thrift stores are my died and gone to heaven activities. I love to spend money on these but usually am broke.
