Pink Saturday/ Pink Shelf, Pink Eastery Stuff

Sorry I am posting so late! It seemed that everything was conspiring against me today, including the dog barking half the night. I didn't end up getting out of bed until very early afternoon. I was also scanning some very cool old pictures at Walmart before picking up my disc of recently taken pictures, and there were problems with the scanning machines, so this took forever!

Add that to a general lack of get-up-and-go-ness, and you have a very late post!

Anyhow, on to the pinky stuff! I am still in the process of getting things up on the walls in my apartment, but am nearly finished. How do you like the little pink shelf?

Here it is in the raw, seriously needing some dressing up and tender loving care. I decided to paint it pink, and believe me, this thing was a serious biotch to paint! I really should have primed it first if I was going to use cheap spray paint.
After much trial and error, it finally came out pink. I thought it might look nice with my collection of faux African violets. I added in some Beanie Baby bunnies for Easter. I hung my vintage picture of a young girl above it, but somehow this didn't quite do it for me.
Next I tried the picture with the pink border. I liked this much better! The other picture now hangs to the side of this.
I needed to get a little Easter pink in here in honor of the season! I used to collect Beanie Babies, and now have a ton of them in storage, but I did keep out my bunnies for spring and Easter. See the little pink bunny on the left? There is some pink in the basket too, of course.
I found this precious little porcelain bunny at Goodwill. He will sit on my table for Easter brunch.

And this Easter egg plate, also from Goodwill, should be holding some deviled eggs.
Grand total for my Goodwill purchases was only $5, and I will have a cute table setting after all!

For more pink goodness, please visit Beverly at How Sweet the Sound.

Have a Happy Easter everyone, and may your day be especially blessed. And don't forget the reason for the season, Jesus' resurrection!

I've been on a blogging break a medical hiatus. So now...I'm catching up, by enjoying a stroll through the posts I've missed.
What a lovely pink redo on the shelf.
It always amazes me what a transformation a little paint makes. Adding a few accessories...a whole fresh look.

Come by for a visit, the company would be nice.

Sweet Easter wishes,

Your pink shelf and the pink rimmed picture above it are perfect! The paint turned out really nice! I have a shelf like that I am thinking! Happy Pink saturday and Easter!

You did a stunning job on that shelf, and the picture you decided on is exactly right. And well done for hanging it yourself (I do all my own DIY - I haven't the patience to wait for my husband ... could be a couple of years before he'd get round to hanging a shelf!)

Happy Pink Saturday & a very Happy Easter

You find the nicest things at Goodwill. I see just junk at the one by me. I wish you a Blessed Easter as you celebrate our risen Lord.
