Etsy Cottage Colors Party for April

I am a member of Etsy Cottage Style and each month they have various blog parties or market days.  This month is the Etsy Collage Colors Party for April and the color is PINK!  So, I set off around the house to take pictures of my pink displays.  I don't have a lot, but here is what I do have:
Just recently redid the mess on top of a shelf unit in my art space.  I much prefer this!  I walnut ink dyed the cotton crochet thread on the left and added vintage hat pins.  Next is a huge spool of pink-tan thread, a big roll of pink lace, bright pink crochet thread with vintage earrings, a sugar bowl with no lid that has a bouquet of pink flowers in it.  The old paint brushes added height.
My wonderful dress form with her pink scarf and lovely, full vintage pink cabbage rose corsage.  Just redid this wall in my bedroom a couple of weeks ago.  See the blog post below.
I have two of these lovely pink roses plates in my bedroom.
The plates are on the wall on either side of this great roses print.
Another vintage pink rose corsage held by the lovely white hands dish.
In my bathroom resides the only Christie Repasy print I own!  I bought this years ago at Lucketts General Store in Lucketts, Virginia.  I love this print!

Hope you enjoyed my PINK Etsy Cottage Colors Party pictures.  Please click here to go to the Etsy Cottage Colors Party blog page and take a look at the other participants.  I can guarantee you won't be disappointed in what you find!! 

Enjoy the rest of your day!  It's going to be warm and breezy here in the Phoenix area.  Another perfect day!

Sarah said...

Everything is so pretty!
I am real curious as to how you dyed the crochet thread. It looks good and is the perfect way to disguise a dingy looking white ball of thread. Please share your method!

Hi Judy,
I just read about your purchase at Luckets in VA and I got tickled as one of the blogs I now follow sells her goodies there... I hope to visit there myself someday. The print is beautiful.
