To all my blog peeps, a question.... it safe to burn a votive candle in a china teacup?? Will the cup get too hot? I'm thinking not, 'cuz tea is pretty hot, but I'd like to get some opinions.

Pink Saturday and where've I been all week?

Can't believe I haven't posted since LAST Pink Saturday! We're busy remodeling the guest room and time got away from me. Oh, well! Pink Saturday is here again! Visit Beverly at How Sweet the Sound for this weeks list of Pink fans!

Here are my pinkies for the week!

Thought I would share my new pink slippers. They are cheap Crocs knock-offs, but oh so cute and comfy!

And now they are four. The newest addition to my ring box collection.

I can't believe they still make this! $2.50 at Wal-mart. I'm no wine snob! Had to have some!!

Here are my vintage pinkies found on eBay for this week.

A sweet toy sewing machine. Listing is here.

How great is this? See it here.

Oh my gosh! I wore one of these in high school, but mine wasn't pink! See it here!

Didn't know these came in pink! Love it! It's here!

Have an awesome Pink Saturday! Ya'll come back!

Pink Pink Pink!

Beverly at How Sweet the Sound is our hostess every week for PINK SATURDAY. She does an awesome job! Thank you Beverly! Check out her blog for this weeks list of PINK fanatics!!

I am in love with Yankee Candle Company!! Don't know why I haven't tries their goodies til now. I especially love the scented wax tarts.... much so that I had to buy this precious thing to burn them in!! How cute is this???

For those of you who have used them, does the wax dissipate, or do you have to remove it once the scent is gone??

I have found something else to collect! Oy vey! Just what I need! Three makes a collection, doesn't it? Maybe I should stop now!

Sweet little china ring boxes with little roses.

Some more vintage/retro items on Ebay right now :-)

This is just the front of the oven, refashioned to hang on your wall!! What a great magnetic bulletin board if you have the room! Listing is here.

I LOVE this old bathroom shelf/cabinet thingie! Check listing here for more photos!

What a sweet old kitchen timer! Check it out here!

This is just a model, but I would SO drive this!! It's here.

That's all for today. Come back again next week!!

Look familiar?

This is what we woke up to this morning and it's still coming down :-( I'm SO ready for SPRING!!

A birthday...

My heart dog, Violet turned 9 yesterday having been born in the evening of Mar. 15, 2000. I knew that my girlfriend would be having corgi puppies around St. Patty's Day, and that I would get my pick. (well, her dogs, not her ~grin~) This is what I was doing the night she was born...

...playing an old Welsh air called "The Maid from the Parish of Pendaryn" in front of 1400 people at the Celtic Fling at our local high school. I wondered why my friend was not there to see/hear me play. I was pleasantly surprised to find out later that she was birthing puppies!! She was the sweetest thing! Went everywhere with me in the back of my Subaru. Even went to work with me everyday. When I changed jobs, she had to stay home. She was a good girl and there were no issues.

Today she is an elegant lady, and we just had to have a party! (Well, her barkday really started on Saturday where she was treated to a grooming! She got a baff, her toesies clipped and her toofers brushed. They put a pretty bow in her ear, but she shook it out before I could get a photo!)

The bakery made us cupcakes with dog bones on them!

Yum, yum, mama!

Bailey enjoyed his cake and ice cream too!

Kitties like birthday goodies!

Is there more up there on the counter mama?

Bailey wants to know too!

Every birthday grrrrrl needs new toys to guard.

and of course little brother needs a new toy for sisters birthday too!

What we won't do for our fur-kids :-)

Pinkie Saturday!!!

Boy, do Pink Saturdays roll around fast!!! Be sure to visit our sweet hostess BEVERLY at How Sweet the Sound to see the ever growing list of PINK participants!!

I thought I'd start this PS with a couple vignettes from around my house.

This is my vanity in the bathroom. ALL of my jewelry and perfume is here. I'm not sure what the little dress form om the left is for, but right now she sports my necklace of vintage heart charms. (This one might make a cute blog header, eh?)

This is part of my ironing center. I found the pretty little mug with the roses at Goodwill on Thursday. The sweet little pink bowl holds my straight pins.

Don't you adore this bag?? I got it from a vendor at last's weeks flea market. It's covered in clear vinyl is why it's so shiny!

And last, but not least, I won a giveaway from Mermaids of the Lake!!! I've been wanting to share, but made myself wait til Pink Saturday!!

It was wrapped in this pretty pink paper...

the box had this pretty pink flower and ribbon...

and inside, well, I can only say LUSCIOUS!! A fab bracelet and earring set!! Very sparkly and feminine.

So everyone have a wonderful PINK SATURDAY and don't forget to visit the other pinkies!!!

Last weekend's flea market...

When we opened the doors at 9 am it was like Black Friday at Target. Everywhere I tried to go I was in someone's way. But, it was fun, I made some money and bought some awesome stuff from the other vendors.

Farmer Dwayne working on some more chicken coops...

The 'girls' love the little red house with the run...

But mostly they loved it when we let them out to go clean up under the bird feeder...

They are so sweet!! Bock bock bock!
