Pink Saturday, Special Surprises, and a Giveaway!

In December, a friend of mine up north went in search of some vintage finds for me to use in my work I was making for the art galleries. But, now that those art pieces were completed, I was able to use some to make decorator tags for friends of mine and I wanted to share them with you. When I saw this picture of Roselle and her husband on her blog, I knew I wanted to make her something memorable.

So, I made this tag with the word "cherish." This engraved vintage cross was included in those special finds I was telling you about and it had to have a wonderful place to be. So, it is landing in Roselle’s special home. And yes, I know this tag isn’t pink, but when I saw her taupe walls in her living room, I wanted it to match. If you ever need to go in search of “pure pink heaven,” just go to Roselle’s blog at Seaside Rose Creations!

Here is a close-up.

The next tag is for Suzann...I knew it had to be pink! I was able to incorporate one of my favorite vintage pieces--this faux pearl surrounded by rhinestones. It includes coffee-stained cheese cloth, curly seam binding, a Martha Stewart flower, and of course, Suzann's initial.

When I saw this adorable picture of Jan on her blog, I couldn’t help but put it onto a tag for her to preserve her memories. And this vintage heart was just waiting to be included in a tag, so it finally got its chance!

I am having a Valentine’s Day Blog Candy giveaway. If you want to enter, just leave me a message here to say you want to enter and become a follower (if you aren’t one already!) The winner will be announced on Valentine’s Day.

Happy Pink Saturday! Just click the link and you will be taken to Beverly's blog!

This blog candy contest is now closed. (Feb. 13, 2011.)

Wow...I am stunned!! I was on my blogroll, and I see the pic of my hub and me on YOUR blog. I was thinking what the hay! LMBO
Cindy, are you sure you're not clairvoyant on top of being on of the sweetest, most thoughtful persons I know? That tag is gorgous and it's funny but I have been wanting to incorporate religious art into my decor. I have various cards and pics I have collected or are sent to me from missions etc. but I was thinking of ways to display them. Soooo....the cross is perfect. You are amazing!

Happy Pink Saturday Cindy Sweetie...
What a gorgeous share today. Roselle is so lucky and what a wonderful word Cherish. I love that, and the little cross is exquisite. Just the perfect little touch of love.

I love the one for Suzann with the little pearl surrounded by rhinestones, and the Martha Stewart flower again, just the right touch. I love that coffee stained cheese cloth bow as well. How lovely to have her "S" included. You thought of each little detail with each of them in mind.

And that photo of Jan is perfect. I love that you not only added the heart, but that you also personalized it with her name. How perfect to the letter "T" each and every detail is.

I am so tickled for the opportunity to be in your drawing. I have signed up to follow you. I can't wait to see what you share next. I would love to have you pop over and say hello. I would be thrilled to have you follow my blog as well. I love meeting new friends and sharing our families and each day along the way.

Country hugs sweetie, Sherry
