In the Pink!

Hello! Time for another Pink'ed post! Pink Saturdays are hosted by Beverly @ How Sweet the Sound...be sure & leave her a comment thanking her for her hsopitality. You know it's a lot of work composing links for 100 people every week. I sure hope I make it around to everybody this week. It's hard to visit that many but I'll do my best though.


For today's Pink Saturday post, I'm shaking things up a bit by throwing in some red. ;o) See! My Valentine fairy is wearing pink & red. I got her @ one of the discount stores....TJMaxx, Ross or Marshall's. I shop @ all 3 & they are all alike so I get confused.




And there's also lots of pink hearts on my Valentine tree! Some pink roses too!!! I looked all over @ the after-Christmas sales for a white feather tree but no luck. So I used a white boa as a tree skirt on my aluminum tree to give the same effect. Welllll, almost...it's not quite the same so I still want a white feather tree. The great thing about this silver one though is it'll take you from Valentine's to Easter (I wrap the feather boa as a garland then) to Halloween & on into Christmas, of course.



I'll be sharing the rest of my Valentine's decor next week. I am realllly pleased w/ it this year. Course I say that every year & then by next year, I won't think it's so hot. ;o) I do think I am getting better & better every year though. And you know who I credit that too? Y'all! All you bloggers! I think your influence & inspiration has created so much growth in my development as a decorator. I really feel like my style is blossoming & for that, I thank you!
Happy Pink Saturday & have a great week-end every one!

That tree is beautiful, I might just have to borrow this idea, but I'll wait till I can get a silver tree after Christmas.I like the idea it is small.

Hugs,
Chris

your tree is awesome it should remain the "event" tree and why not
the possiblities are endless. how cute would it look as the patriotic tree... i think the silver makes the ornies pop...if you decorate it for easter i would love to see it.

Sit-N-Chat said...

Very Valentine-y. I enjoy seeing your decorations.
After Christmas, I found 4 2 ft tall trees at JC Penneys - 2 white and 2 silver. Each was $2.50!!! When I was checking out, the cashier said, "You saved $136.00."

I used with snowmen after Christmas. I should decorate them for Valentine's Day!

God bless.
Jennifer

Big Hugs,
