Pink~Spring House Tour...


Hello again! I told you last week I made some birdie topped canisters...the first ones were darker to match the decor in my guest bath...I showed the link below how to make these. These little chicky cuties are for my kitchen!



A little tease for my Easter Tablescape coming up!







What a beautiful time of year. It is spring...although I have to remind the weather at times...and everything is starting to bloom a weeeee bit everywhere. In California, we have poppies starting to burst forth on the mountain sides and the sides of the freeways. It is beautiful to behold!


This pillow below I made with a dear friend in mind who is fighting cancer. She is precious to me and I say a prayer every day for her.





Above I made the little 'peep' sign, and added a couple of little chicks....

Below I decoupaged a frame with scrapbook paper, and then added the vintage Easter print. If you type in 'free vintage Easter' over at google you will find amazing images on several sites to print off for free.








Do you remember the little birdie topped canisters I showed how to make for my guest bathroom here ?

Well I made a couple for my kitchen. After spring I will change out the ribbon with red checked ribbon since my kitchen is mostly red and white.



Playing along today with Pink Saturday with Beverly over @

Thanks for coming by the first part of my Spring House Tour and Pink Saturday. The second part will be next week. I have much more to show you! Glad you could visit!!
Blessings,
Debbie

Happy Pink Saturday Debbie...
Sweetie I loved my tour today, and your canisters with the pink checked ribbons and chicks/roosters are so stinkin cute. I love them. I can just visualize the red after the holidays as my kitchen and dining are in red. So cute for sure.

I love all the beautiful Easter chicks and thanks for the tip on the Free Vintage Easter pics. I will be checking that out for sure. Thank you sweetie.

I love the pillow that you made with the simplicity of HOPE. So beautiful.

Have a beautiful Saturday sweetie and thank you for sharing.

I am new to Pink Days, so I want to stop by and say hi. I just love this concept, and hope to do this for a very long time. I have lots of pink items.

The canisters are so lovely. I like the plaques too. I just love the little birdies.

Hi Debbie

So glad that I stopped by tonight. I love to see you create. You are really gearing up for Spring and Easter, everything looks wonderful. I've been down with a nasty bug and haven't been doing much of anything, but I promised myself that I had to make a few visits tonight.
