A Blast From The Past

Welcome to Another Pink Saturday! 

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 –  

Candy’s blog – Rock Candy . Candy loves old and preloved things. She has a gorgeous blog, so do pop over and take a look around.


For today’s Pink I’ll share with you more recreated items …. these are past works of mine (…. and also early photos so my apologies for the quality of the photos). Here is a mix of things – a tall planter, small vase and decorative jugs.


All items in the above photo are recreated, with the exception of the pretty pink sheer tablecloth/throw the items are gracefully resting on. The pink fringing was hand dyed especially for it.

In the photo below – what was an old, worn silver tray became a pink decorative tray refusing to be hidden away in a cupboard….. The colours around the rim are actually a little deeper than what is seen in the photo…. what you can do with old pieces is only limited by the imagination.

I’m not too far away from returning to my creative space where someone’s disgarded items are awaiting to become new treasures. I’m hoping to be able recreate many more decorative items and perhaps even post some of the work as I do them step by step.

In the meantime – Happy Pink Saturday Everyone!


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.

  1. What a surprise to see a blurb about me. Thanks for the sweet comments and love your collection of pinks.
    Hope your Saturday is Blessed 😉

  2. Winter is just around the corner in my neck of the woods so Pink Saturday is even more meaningful for me because I won’t see my garden bloom again until at least May of next year!

    Thanks so much for your participation this week. It brightened my day?

    Wishing you a wonderful weekend filled with happiness surrounded by those you love.

  3. Oh my, you have lots of talent. The tray is the perfect hue of pink for me and to think that it used to be silver, that makes me what to look around my home, grab a brush and begin, Happy Pink Saturday, Char

  4. I’m impressed. What lovely re-purposed things. I love that you have the talent to turn something old and discarded in to something beautiful!


  5. I love what you did with the silver platter… and wondering how you did it… Thanks for stopping by and leaving the kind comment. Happy Pinkness!
