A Pink Bonanza~Pinkalicious!

Above is a pink and chocolate brown appliqued quilt that I AM STILL WORKING ON....YIKES....
HEY EVERYONE! Of course it is time for all Pink Bloggers to come together and enjoy all the pinkalicious fun! Our wonderful Hostess with the Mostest is Beverly over at How Sweet the Sound! I decided to do a pink bonanza~ several of my pink posts all wrapped up together! Here ya go!

Below is an appliqued quilt of bunnies and cabbages that I made....it still needs binding put on....

A little outdoor dining with my hand painted rose dishes that my husband's grandmother painted for us....when we got married.

Below is a Pottery Barn Style bulletin board I made using scrapbook paper and board trim that I painted black...the papers were just tacked on the wall. My daughter added the lights!

Below are little watermelons that I sewed together and then painted....love them....

Decoupaged tray ~spray painted black first and then decoupaged...took about 30 minutes.

Next....I took artist canvases and just hot glued fabric on to them...added ruffles, rick rack and a flower...this hides my stereo in my craft room!

Glue stick, and scrapbook paper was all it took to cover some file folders.

I've been blogging a little over 2 years and boy do I love it.
I even have hubby helping me now...."Pull over now...I've got to take this picture." "But honey I have to stop at Michaels....I just need this one thing (giggle giggle)."
So to celebrate my 600 (wowzers) post I will
be having an enormous giveaway on May 1st (my son's college
graduation day...and his lovely wife too)....
So be sure to come back by, mark it down...it will be big.
