Created With Love.

Welcome to Pink Saturday! 

 It’s those little things, handmade or recreated with love, that can say so much and become little treaured keepsakes. So I’ve dug out some photos from my archives, of a few small creations to share for today’s Pink . The first photo shows a simple little notebook. I had a stack of handmade paper which I made into these small books. A painted rose on the cover with some trims turn a plain book into a sweet little keepsake notebook. 

A few years back my mum came home with a box full of these small stainless steel gravy boats. They were thrown out at her place of work so she rescued them and brought them to me. They were still in good condition – but what do you do with a box full of gravy boats?

…. Recreate them into candle holders of course! After receiving the ‘recreation’ treatment some were filled with candle wax or wax beads and others would hold a tealight or short candle.

The next photo shows a recreated trinket box. This was a well-used silver heart box in need of some loving care. It belonged to a friend of mine who didn’t want to throw it out and so asked me to give it some new life…….

…. and so, it went back home renewed.

One thing I remember when creating the above treasures, is how much I enjoyed working on them. 

There are many wonderful entries for Pink Saturday which is hosted by Beverly at How Sweet The Sound. Take time to visit participants’ blogs and see how Pink  everyone’s Saturdays can be.


Beverly has issued us all a challenge for Pink Saturday – to visit someone new amongst the particpants and then introduce them to your readers. So my blog for the week is –  

La Chambre Rose – by Nancy – celebrating artists and crafters and offering tips and freebies.

  5. When the blossoms of summer begin to fade we can always count on Pink Saturday to bring a smile to our faces and to remind us that somewhere there are pastels and pretty things.

    Thanks so much for sharing this week. I wish you sunshine and lollipops today and always.

  6. Thank you so much for mentioning my blog! That is just the sweetest. La Chambre Rose sits in the middle of the list, and as you know, the middle “child” never gets as much attention. It is so appreciated!

    I never would have know that gravy boat was painted and not porcelain if I had not read carefully…a couple of times.

    Happy Pink Saturday!
