Shades Of Inspiration

This week's color is PINK!

I know this photo is quite over-exposed...but I liked the way it made the butterflies appear ethereal...

This is an old beauty that my mother gave to my daughter when she was just a baby. I just love the delicate scrolly edges of it...

I just love dragging out my shells once summer comes, I miss them so during the harsh winter months. I'd have them out year round but really, shells just look ridiculous displayed in Canadian winter!

This is a vintage book cover that I framed, I couldn't resist. I always have a good chuckle when I walk by it. Good wives indeed! (wonder if there's a sequel entitled "Bad Wives"?)

And finally, an old clothes pin dress that I found at a house sale....covered in tiny rosebuds. Yummy.

Happy 4th to all my my American friends - hope you all have a lovely holiday weekend!

"Good Wives" should probably be "Stepford Wives!" Love your sweet photos. I need to find some seashells. It's not like I'm near a beach or anything. So I guess it's the store for me!

Love all the pinks!! The shells are beautiful - I really love your white coral! I'm also loving the clock faces next the beautiful cup from your mom!

Have a wonderful weekend,

great pictures!! Did you stamp that closes hanger (is this the right word, it's too late for the dictionary) yourself? Great idea (if not great idea too!)
Just another Friday for the both of us, but I wish you a happy and creative day too!
