Happy Pink Saturday everyone! Be sure to head over to Beverly's blog "How Sweet the Sound" for more Pink Saturday posts.
I truly love PINK. Always have. I really was a "girlie" girl with ribbons and bows. My grandmother loved pink and always had a beautiful pink bedroom. I thought it was the most gorgeous room ever.
OnlySon was my only child...and people tend to frown on boys in pink. I really need a grand-daughter (hint, hint) to lavish in PINK bows!
Ok, with that said...
My Christmas tree was done in Mercury glass and pink this year. I found a wonderful pink ribbon from Hobby Lobby which I fell in love with. I used it on the Christmas tree. I just couldn't bring myself to put it up so...I put it on the mantel for Valentine's.
I loved it so much, I kept it on the mantel for my winter/Valentine decorations. I usually skip straight from Christmas to Valentine's and then to Spring/Easter.
This is my mantel now.
Kept some of the mercury glass.
Added some silver hearts.
Kept the pink Depression glass vase which I love. It's the Tea Room pattern. Tea Room was such an elegant Art Deco style Depression glass pattern. It was made by Indiana Glass Co. from 1926 - 1931.
I put some crystals in the bottom and put some of the lights in the vase. Yes, I love sparkle!
I also use the pink Tea Room matching candle holders.
I love my pair of antique Waterfall style lamps. I keep them on the living room mantel year round. They fit the romantic theme so well with the cherub bottoms.
And kept the lights. I love to turn that on at night. It helps to keep some of the sparkle of the season.
By the way..."Who Dat"? Yep, we're going to the Super Bowl!! And the full chant for Saints fans? "Who dat? Who dat? Who dat say dey gonna beat dem Saints? Who dat? Who dat?"
