Pink Roses For Pink Saturday!

Happy Pink Saturday!
Before I show you my Pinkies, I would like to announce the opening of my Etsy "Vintage Porcelain Art" Store.
Please stop by for a visit!
There aren't very many listings yet, but there will be soon!


Here are some of every body's favorite........Pink Roses!












OK OK!  LOL!  This next one isn't pink, but after getting it I'm tickled pink!
I was MORTIFIED at the thought of having to wear a CPAP machine to sleep!
I mean, look at this thing! My hubby teased me and said I look like Darth Vadar wearing it!
 I've been suffering severe chronic fatigue and it affects my life, including my work!
Last night was my first night with my new friend "Pappy" I'm now calling it.
My life has changed over night! I felt the difference after only one night!  My husband thinks its cool now and wants one for himself after seeing the difference it has made today!
What a blessing this horrible looking thing turned out to be!  HAHAHA!

Any ideas on how to make it more attractive? 
I've thought about gluing rhinestones on it, but really I think the best thing to do is turn the lights out!

I hope you all are having a wonderful Pink Saturday, I am! :)


Please Stop and say hello to Bev and the other Pinky's!

Cocka-Doodle-Doo! Rooster Party!

Today I'm participating in a Rooster Party!

This vintage post card was my inspiration for the teapot I'm working on with roosters on it.
I say "working on" because I'm embarrassed to say, I didn't meet my deadline to share today.
But, I took a picture of the work in progress. It is far enough along that you can get the idea of how it might turn out......





Keeping in the theme of Roosters, I thought I would share with you some postcards from my vintage post card collection! 








Thank you to Bella Vista for hosting such a fun party!  I'm so looking forward to seeing everyone elses roosters!


Here is the link  for more.....

Teacups Teacups! Giveaway WINNER ANNOUNCED!!!!!



 Happy Tea Tuesday!
Today is the day!
I'm so excited to announce the winner of my giveaway, but I'm also sad for the ones that didn't win.
but, I've decided, I'm definitely going to have more giveaways! there will be more chances!
Thank you ALL for entering and making this fun! I've made so many new blog friends!

Drum Roll Please!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
The winner is
Sandi @ Rose Chintz Cottage!
Congratulations Sandi!
You have won this Cup and Saucer!

I 'm not sure how others do their giveaways, but I wanted it to be as fair and as random as possible, so after everyone posted their names I put all the names in a spread sheet and made note of what each entry was for and made it so that every entry was assigned a number.....



Then I went to Tara Frey's blog "Typing Out Loud " and used her "Random Number Generator"



And Voila'! A Winner!
I will admit it seemed a little anticlimactic sitting here alone at my computer and with just a click of the mouse the whole thing was done!  HAHA!
It felt like balloons and streamers should have fell from the ceiling and the song "CELEBRATE GOOD TIMES"  should start blasting, but it didn't!
So I took a sip of my tea and said a prayer for God to bless each and every one of you.
Ever since I started the giveaway I've ran to the computer every day to see your comments and entries and each one made me smile and made my day!

Tea Things Tuesday!
I chose these teacups to share with you because they are the same style blank as the giveaway, but painted very differently!






I want to thank all the hostesses and participants that make this such a fun day.


           Please pay them a visit and see the lists of other "partiers"........

Oh, and on a personal note.......
My hubby and I had an AWESOME date night last Friday!
After a scrumptious dinner at Chili's, we went the comedy show, and were surprised to have the opportunity to meet one of our favorite comedians! And of course, we got his autograph!


And our daughter took out picture before we left, like it was prom night!  HAHA!

Everyone have a wonderful day!
