♫I feel pretty, oh, so pretty, oh, so pretty and witty and wise...♫

Thinking about Beverly's PINK SATURDAY on Friday afternoon, my thoughts wandered up to my master bath which, of course, has oodles of pink all over the place! So, today I'm sharing with you some of the goodies I use to make me feel pretty and girlie and all squeaky clean!
Before I traveled up the stairs, I snapped a photo of the little brush I keep in my kitchen to scrub the dirt off my hands and from under my nails when I come in from gardening. Yes, I know, I should wear gloves, but there's just something about digging in the cool dirt with my hands that makes me feel like I'm really gardening
I ♥ my pink back brush. I found this, of all places, at the Dollar Store! Boy, do I ever ♥ things that only cost a dollar, especially with the price everything else on the rise.
I painted an old yard sale napkin holder from the '70s white, added a couple of pink rosebuds on the feet and then popped in some pink face cloths. Another repurposed, reused and recycled item in my home. Bottles, cans and paper aren't the only things that we can save from a landfill!
What bath worth it's scented sea salt would be complete without a pink rubber duckie? My mother died as a result of breast cancer metastasizing throughout her body. I support breast cancer research entirely and completely. Have YOU had your yearly exam?
These cutie pies have nothing to do with my master bath, but I really enjoy a bargain, especially when I feel like I'm getting it for just about nothing. I was able to nab these full spools of laces and ribbons marked down to only 50 cents each at my local Walmart. I bought several other pastel colors but they weren't pink so they didn't get to meet you today. What will I do with these? Well, you met my grand-daughter, Rachel, last week which should give you a little hint. These will be used to embellish the doll clothes I will be making for her Christmas gift this year!

Remember, if pink is your passion, pop on over to Beverly's HOW SWEET THE SOUND. You'll find dozens of us pink gals sharing sweet, pink goodies with you this week. Ain't life grand?

Great pinkies today Mimi! Great idea for the napkin holder's new life too. ☺

Are you fertilizing your hydrangeas? Your spring was much later than mine, maybe that made a difference.

Charlene said...

Thank you for popping by to visit me for Pink Saturday! Sounds like the cup of tea & blogging is a sure cure for cloudy days. We had bad thunder storms here in Texas last night but, today is sunny & HUMMID!!!!!! Thanks for mentioning the Breast Cancer & did you do your exam today. If you want to help some more... go to my site & on the side bar is a pink rose photo... click on it & it will take you to a site for breast cancer. When people click on it the site donates for free mamograms. Feel free to use the photo & the link to help spread the word. As a survivor I try to get the word out in every way I can but, don't dwell on it. Just try to get others to be AWARE & pro-active! Have a great day.

I like digging in the dirt with my bare hands, too. That's why I never get a manicure--well maybe for special occasions. Gloves just make my hands sweat. Love all of your pink stuff.
