Recreated, Repurposed, Rebirthed

Welcome to Pink Saturday! 

We all need a little colour to brighten our days. I personally love lots of sunshine streaming through the windows. But when the skies are grey it’s nice to be surrounded by pretty things to help brighten up little grey corners. So for today’s Pink I’ll share with you another recreated item…. a pink one of course.


This was an old brass jug rescued from an op shop. It was given a nice cleansing and scrub; then the creative hand set about to give it a face lift.

A nice bunch of pretty blooms would look extra gorgeous in this jug/vase. 


Another recreated/repurposed item – transformed from iceream bowl to jewellery holder.

A bit of paint, a few trims and a velvet drawstring pouch …. who would’ve thought that desserts were once eaten from this bowl? Now it holds your precious gems.

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 –  

Tammi’s blog – Visions of Vintage . Tammi loves junking around for antiques, vintage pieces (furniture and accessories) and re-vamping stuff.


Happy Pink Saturday!
