Shabby Chic Decor and Romance


Hi Everyone~

I love Shabby Chic decor and I especially think it is
beautiful mixed with a little romance!


So, I thought I would share some of my
Depression Glass with you....


And I have made tags to accompany the pieces
with images from a fabulous collage sheet from



I have also tied curly seam binding on each tag...



Tags offer a cute way to accent any collection that
you might have...Just an idea!!

Happy Pink Saturday!! and wishing you a
happy weekend!!!

JUST ADDED: WE ARE EXPECTING A STORM HERE
IN LOUISIANA, SO IF YOU DON'T HEAR FROM ME,
IT MEANS I LOST POWER-Thanks so much!

XO
Cindy

Linking this to Pink Saturday!!

I used to have several pieces of old depression glass but shared most of it with my brother's wife. It just reminds you of softer, gentler times, doesn't it? xoDiana

Maria@BubblegumandDuctTape said...

I have a few pieces of depression glass. Nothing like yours. All these pieces are very pretty in pink.

I love Depression glass, especially pink, and I am not really a "pink" girl (probably because I overdosed on it as an adolescent!) I will be keeping you and your area in my prayers, hoping it is not much of anything. ((hugs)) xo

Linda M. said...

Happy Pink Saturday Cindy, Love the pretty pink dishes and all those lovely vintage images. Be safe. Hugs, Linda

Terry said...

Happy Pink Saturday to you, well tomorrow! Beautiful glass! Be safe!

Cindy said...

Beautiful, Cindy! But, I can't believe this - I just got done posting my Pink Saturday post - about my Mom's pink depression glass - and I hadn't looked at your blog yet!! Honest!! LOL...this is so funny! I hope you don't lose power. Stay safe, my friend!

Charlotte said...

Beautiful, Cindy. I love pink depression glass. The little tags really create an wire of romance for them. You are so clever. I used to have a little square plate like yours. I haven't seen it in a long time. It must be somewhere around. I must look for it.
Blessings,
Charlotte

Charlotte said...

Oh my my my. I must start proof reading before posting. I meant to say aire, not wire. I see my computer changes it for me. This time I changed it back. Now after looking it up I guess it isn't even a word. Guess I should have said air.Oh well, I hope you know what I meant.

Debby said...

I love pink depression glass. I only have a couple of pieces but they are beautiful.
Hope all goes well in the storm. Hope you hang on to power. That can be a pain.

Hi Cindy,

I love the depression glass. I have a pitcher that my momma passed on to me that is so pretty. I believe it belonged to her momma. I'll have to post it so you can see it.

We watch all the storms and ride them out "in spirit" only now...My husband is from Mobile, AL and I'm from "everywhere". {giggles} I traveled all my life until I moved to the Smokies a few years ago. Anyhow, friends and my husbands children and grands are in Mobile. I hope it only produces lots of rain and heads my direction to east Tennessee. It's become very dry here.

Poor Texas is burning up...they need some of the storm's rain so badly.

Stay safe...

Pink Sparkles,
Stephanie Suzanne ♥

I didn't know you collected depression glass too! I have a HUGE collection, and I just can't help myself, when I see it, I must own it!! Yours is gorgeous, and I always add tags to everything, so your tags are wonderful!!

I'm thinking of you with this storm!

Hi Cindy!
I see that you are going to be in October R/H
I was in last October R/H congrats girl Can't wait for my copy!
Now I am having dumb troubles with my blog site. I lost my google blog translater and have been trying to load it, and for some reason some of my inspiring sites have disappeared off my side bar, yours is one of them.

Only I can delete so I am not sure how I lost them. So now later tonight I will have to go relaod my fav's UGH!!! I have been loading translater and it just won't show up at all so I will see later on what I can do after I get things done and time to relax an work at it :)

I am in a party mode for you:)
You so deserve all the rewards of your hard work :)
xoxo

Happy Pink Saturday Cindy.
Your depression glass is beautiful. I LOVE THE PINK but for some reason I have collected the green. All of it is stunning.
Have a weekend full of beauty and grace.

Simply Debbie said...

It's me again.
Forgot the important part...I will be praying for you and your state and all the states that you will not lose power and no damage. Texas needs rain desparetly...they are burning up and so is parts of Oklahoma...the whole state is in a burn ban and have lost so many houses in okc due to fires...all my flowers are just burnt up.
prayers and hugs
Simply Debbie

Hi Sweet Cindy
How is all that stormy weather going on around you? I hope you are safe there and still have power.
