TIME For Pink Saturday!
Do you remember this vintage clock that I found at the flea market for $2.00? Well, when I plugged it in, it sounded like a plane was about to land in the kitchen. Just what I was afraid of. So I had to take it apart, get out my Dremel and cut down lots of plastic protuberances (yes, it's a word!), and put in a battery operated clock kit from Michaels.
And now it's finally up on the kitchen wall! Which led to washing of that wall, so that I could take this picture. Which now means that I need to wash all of the other walls in the kitchen, because the clean one stands out like a sore thumb! I don't know if you can tell, but the little spice jars above it are also pink.
These are my winnings from Heidi's giveaway over at Gold Country Girls. A pretty pink embroidered pillowcase, a dresser scarf, hankies, and hand painted china.
Also two vintage postcards, one in a pretty frame, and the other one made into a greeting card. And a great old dress pattern. Oh, if only I had a waist that tiny! Thank you Heidi for all of these pretties!
If you would like to see lots more pinks, visit Beverly at How Sweet The Sound, where she plays hostess every week for her Pink Saturday party!
