Small Vintage Charm

Welcome to Pink Saturday!
This week my pink Saturday has a touch of classic vintage charm. These are small oil paintings framed in the most gorgeous ornate frames. They are not my creations but they will be available in my store soon.

…. a small delightful painting full of charm.

The next painting is just as delightful – portrait of a lady holding roses in her arms…. 

The rich gold frames are replicas of actual Victorian designs.

…. and lastly, a sweet, single bloom.


My favourite painting is the first one but they’re all equally beautiful.

Were You There? The Handmade Show

Crafters on the South East side of Melbourne have long awaited for a show of their very own. This is not a market but a showing or exhibition by a collective group of creative people who beautifully & lovingly create their own wares to the highest quality and of original designs. Many of their works are One-Of-A-Kind and all have their own unique style.

The Handmade Show  is here to showcase the talents that are blooming around Melbourne, especially on the South Eastern side of Melbourne. It’s a petite show of grand proportions by a friendly group who are passionate about their creative work.

Here is part of the creative ensemble –

Celeste from Little Waltz
Kerri from Vintage Sew and So
Celeste fromBowerbird inc
Jade from Holi Goddess
Elena from EP Designs

There will be a limited number of contributors at each show because that is how Celeste of Little Waltz, and creator of this new show, has intended it to be.  A maximum of ten contributors will participate at each show.

We have enjoyed each others company and are enthusiastic in supporting & encouraging one another in our endeavours.

Our next showing is being organised for March. Stay tuned for all the details.

Think Beautiful!

Welcome to Pink Saturday! 

If you like surrounding yourself with beautiful things then your walls are a great place to start – so, go on, hang some beautiful, decorative pieces on your walls. 

These photos show a gorgeous, long panel print of antique crockery. Just right for that Vintage Chic look.

When the walls are taken care of you can whimsically toss a gorgeous pink lace throw over your lounge chair, couch or bed.

This pink throw is also trimmed with hand-dyed fringing, made to match the lace.

It wouldn’t be the same on Pink Saturday if we didn’t include a picture of some beautiful blooms. These pink lilies looked absolutely amazing – the photo does not do them justice. They stood magnificently in a glass vase at the foot of the alter in the chapel of Our Lady of the Angels.

Flowers like these do last a very long time & would cheer up your home and heart continuously…. not forgetting the lovely fragrance they send out.

… And now for our weekly challenge here are a couple of participants I’d like to introduce you to  –

Mary from Across The Pond

Ann from Ann Fannie’s Green Acres

A Gorgeous Surprise

Look at what I received in the mail! It’s just perfect to share with you today.

Welcome to Pink Saturday !

Many of you would remember that before Christmas I held a Giveaway here and sent off prizes to the winnersJanice from Enchanted Quilling  was the winner of the main prize and she had a little surprise in store for me too.  How gorgeous are these – a beautiful pink roses card and a delightful bookmark. It’s sooo nice receiving surprises in the mail. Janice creates some beautiful designs so do pop over and check out all her gorgeous goodies.

Thank You Janice – they’re a lovely surprise to receive.

Now I just had to share another beautfiul rose with you. These photos were taken between Christmas & New Year. We had gorgeous weather – a little hot but it’s always nice when the rains come to cool things off. (well, we actually had thunderstorms & lighting)

…. and here was this gorgeous rose the day after the rains – my friend drew my attention to it and of course I couldn’t resist taking the photos.

Beautiful, Beautiful – a reminder that we Must take time out in our busy lives (whether it’s family life or work) to ‘smell the roses’.  It keeps us healthy, puts a smile on our faces and, while enjoying the beauty around us, we momentarily forget all the things that weigh us down. It may not solve our problems & worries but it injects new energy & refreshes us so that we can keep on going.

I could’ve missed out on seeing this gorgeous rose – I’m so glad I didn’t.

I hope you enjoyed this week’s entry. I believe everything is now back to normal with my computer & blogs so I’ll be able to visit more & get back into the Pink Saturday challenge by next week.
