Happy Pink Saturday!

Happy Pink Saturday Sweet Blogger Friends!

It has been a while since I have participated in a Pink Saturday. My schedule is so crazy with work, church, and my personal life that I haven't had much of an opportunity to link up lately. But here I am today and although I don't have a ton of pinks to offer (sorry ladies) I do have a sneak peak of my beautiful bird cottage to show you.
Those of you that follow my blog know I absolutely LOVE to decorate, and I decorate for every holiday and season. So it was time for me to take down all of the sweet Valentine decor and now the house is decorated for spring - not Easter (yet). That is next month! This month I wanted to pay homage to our dear feathered friends because they are the one's that let us know that spring is coming when they are perched in our trees, eating seed from our feeders, singing us lovely songs . . .
The picture above represents some of my many rose-print china. I think this little vignette screams spring. It is on my kitchen counter and there is more where that came from!

These are some little birds I made from chipboard, scrapbook paper, and embellishments. They will be ornaments for a tree branch I am painting white to put in my kitchen. there are plans to make many other kinds of ornaments. I can't wait to show you what I come up with!

This is one of 4 napkin rings I made for my spring table. It is an ivory felt bird glued on to chipboard. I added feathers under her wing for realism and gave her some embellishments. She is glued to a pale green scrapbook paper-covered chipboard ring. Aren't the plates beneath TO DIE FOR? I can't wait to show you the whole tablescape. I will post pictures soon!


Here is a sweet bird guarding her nest that is perched on my window sill in my kitchen. She reminds me every day what life is all about.
The whole house is just so sweet and springy and I can't wait to show you the whole thing!
I hope you have a blessed weekend and a Happy Pink Saturday!
Love Tammy

  3. I love birds and they are the heralds that the winter is behind us. I would love the pattern you used for your tree branch bird or is that a die? They are so pretty.

  7. Thanks for stopping by - so I could find your pretties, too! Beautiful pinks and greens! I especially noticed the china. In fact, I had to look several times at your very favorite teacup and saucer set ... because I have a VERY similar Haviland Limoges set I've been planning to list in my Etsy shop. If you're interested in seeing pics, email me at myplacetoyours@gmail.com and I'll send them. I got a great deal at auction, and I'm willing to pass along the savings!
