Pink and Pretty

 So, here are a few of my favorite things......placed in front of one of my favorite quilts.  It's a family quilt, lots of names on a cross-stitched LOVE ONE ANOTHER just seems to go there really well.   And, that reminder never hurts anyone, does it? I've no clue who did the cross-stitch, but I made the quilt long ago.  I got the cross-stitch from Sheila at the Junk really called my you well know....the colors pink and green are always calling my name, so it was irresistible.  It's beautifully stitched.

 A recent acquistion was this pink ceramic flower vase from the 40's.........and a heart could I go wrong?  Love it!!!  The little heart bowl I was given a few years is adorable and the little pink bowl is just dear also.  They sit atop a wonderful cake plate I got from Kathy a while is wonderful.........a few meadow flowers amongst roses.  I love it.

 This lovely green vase is a recent purchase also.  From Charles, also at the Junk House.  Just lovely.
And, such a sweet bird perched on it's edge.  

 The yellow 'flower' bowl with pink bird....oh, my, I loved it at first sight, but have had it for a while now.
One filled with perle cotton in great colors....some pink.  The other filled with tiny paper roses.  Tickles my fancy....just saying.

 The yellow bowl,  underside.

 The green vase, underside.

 The pink heart vase is not marked, but I found it online under McCoy.
I really need to bake a cake and show it off on that cake plate sometime soon!

And, here they all are in my tiny dining room.......all that pink and green mixed in with lots of red and part of my flag collection. I hope you enjoyed seeing this little piece of Bird Nest Cottage, with it's new colorful ceramic pieces, all the stitching and my best wishes for a 
Happy Memorial Day

 And, a gentle reminder:


Until next time

The pink heart vase is an eye catcher. I just love the lace at the top. I can see why you grabbed it right up. I like the way you fill you treasures with little balls of thread. And the paper flowers!! Great idea. Your home is like a HUGE doll house with plenty treasures to arrange and re-arrange.
xx, Carol

Everything is so cute. You have given me a bright idea...I have my Mom's cake plate...I need to set it up with some of the little goodies that seem to adopt me!
Thanks and have a great weekend.
