Lots of bows, no buttons & a little repurpose for this week's Pink Saturday!

Well, another trip to the thrift store and some more pink for the house. Don't know what I'll do with all of it yet, but my wheels are turning so maybe in a couple of weeks you'll see what is empty now filled with something fun!

I'll begin with little baby bootie by Napco. This one is larger than last week so I'm going to really have to put on my thinking cap when it comes to filling it but I know something will pop into my head sooner or later☺

Found another little cutie pie on the same day. This one is hand painted. I just adore the tiny pink rose on the toe and the word "baby" on the side, in pink again! When I was out on Friday, I bought the pink ribbon. It just wouldn't be right not to put laces in the booties, would it?

This little pitcher, uhm, this little guy just might get a pink African violet or possibly those personal size packages of cookies. I could keep it on the kitchen counter and when the grandkids pop by I'd have their treat handy right then and there!

What have you repurposed this week? Well, last month I found this darling bunny when I was out and about at Goodwill. All I remember is that I loved it and brought it home with me. After it had a little bubble bath it sat on my counter for quite a while. I'd eye it up, think about it and then walk away. It went on like that for days and days and then...BAM, all of a sudden it dawned on me that my Equal packets just might fit...and...they DID! How cute is this? All I needed to do was add the vintage seam binding for a special touch and he's all set to make his debut on the kitchen table!
Lastly, I just have to share the collar I found for my German Shepherd Dog, Freyja, this Friday afternoon. It isn't often that you can find a feminine collar for a large dog. I just HAD to have this for her! Even though she may look fierce, she is just the softest tempered and sweetest natured pooch. I love her to pieces. The pink satin ribbon on the collar with the timely "unconditional love" message surely fits my lady.

Well, that's it for this Saturday. I think next week I'm going to present all of the pink food I can come up with. I almost did it this week but there is a little baking I want to do for the event! have fun☺ Be sure to visit all of the other pink lovers over at Beverly's How Sweet the Sound. Saturdays are such a treat for me and for so many others who participate!

And, last, but certainly not least, Our family attic wishes Pink Saturday a ♥BIG PINK HAPPY FIRST BIRTHDAY♥!

Yeah, it's Pink Saturday's 1 Year Celebration!

I love your pinks today - Those tiny shoes oh my, they stop your heart and catch your breath looking at them!

Today I've got Part II of For a Princess (with Part I recapped) - and as it is centered around a celebration, it fits perfectly what with all of the little princesses in their pink tiaras; ) I hope you can come by - I know you'll enjoy it.

Happy Pink Saturday to you Mimi! I love all of your pink finds. My best friend has two female gray hounds. She buys them the most beautiful collars. If you're interested, I can find out where she gets them. I know she buys them online somewhere.

Linda said...

Great pinks, Mimi and Happy Pink Day,


Diane @ Four Paws and Co said...

Adorable pinks today Mimi! Love Freya's new color. Are you going to take a picture of her modeling it?

Is the baby bootie large enough for a lamp? A battery operated candlestick lamp should fit in it, then top with a little shade.

Happy PINK Saturday! ☺ Diane

When I opened your post I thought, "Phew! No beautiful cakes today to make me drool." Then I got to the bottom and what do I see in the previous post; pizza?! And what have I been craving all day, me the one who isn't supposed to have wheat or yeast; pizza! LOL

All kidding aside; beautiful post as always Mimi and hope you're having an awesome pink Saturday. ♥

Great pink post.
