The Power Of Pink

Greetings One And All...I want to send each of you a big Thank You from the bottom of my heart for the wonderful response to my Hotel Bed and Breakfast Tray!!! It's very much appreciated! That was something I wanted to do for a while, and I just love how it turned out, and so glad you liked it too.
It's been very foggy, and damp here, downright gloomy, which I don't mind, but it makes driving around a bit of a nuisance. So I kept my outings this week, close to home. At my local Marshalls I did find something pretty, and useful, so I thought I would share.
This beautiful willow vintage style bottle carrier came with three pretty porcelain topped bottles, perfect for filling with your favorite drink, I just love it. We're planning a small tappas party soon, so it will come in handy.
The pretty pom pom top Mums were all marked down at the local grocery store, a huge pot for just $1.99
An incredible buy for such large blooms. I filled the bottles, for the photo, with a "Pink Drink" just for fun.
Nothing says girlie the like Pink.
I spotted this charming toile lavender pillow from Maria's new shop at Dreamy Whites, as most of you know, it has finally opened and well worth the wait. I saw it and knew it was perfect for my home. Her shop is full of amazing French Finds, and the quality is superb.
Hope you all have a wonderful week, keep warm, and take your vitamin C, it's cold season xoxo , tami
