PINK SATURDAY 10/23/2010

I am hooking up for the weekly pink-fest with Bev of How Sweet The Sound (
My first pink pic is an up cycled ornate candle holder (thrift store find). I coupled it with a crystal votive holder, added vintage crystals and a clay rose and leaves. I love the way this turned out. It started out just a forgotten old gold tone candle holder and after a little pink paint and some other touches, I think it came out so sweet!
This is the sweetest little set. It started out a rusty and forgotten salt and pepper set I found at Goodwill. I painted it up pink, added paper roses and ribbons and now it's just a cute little collectible. Love it!

Another up cycled piece I made...this was a metal candle holder and a separate crystal dish. I painted up the holder, added pink ribbon, pearls and a paper rose to the base. The dish has been bonded to the top of the holder. This could be used as a candy dish, ring holder, or holding a slender pillar candle.

My friend Cindy Adkins over at Whimsical Musings ( has created the most charming PINK sew tags for her Etsy shop! You can go to her blog and check out more of her goodies.Happy Pink Saturday All.

Be sure to visit Bev and all the other pink participants!
