A Little Glowing Pink

Join our lovely Hostess Beverly at "How Sweet the Sound" for other Pink Saturday posts!

I really love to use my thrifty finds throughout my home. And I have a tendency not to use them for their intended purposes. A lot of my pretty dishes/bowls etc. end up in all the different rooms in our home.

In our bedroom I have one of those floor jewelry boxes. I don't really use the top part that flips open to reveal a mirror. I keep seasonal jewelry in that part, so I don't get into it very often. So, this surface makes for a nice little vignette in our bedroom. And I change it up ALL the time. LOL For the month of February, to celebrate Valentine's Day, I decided I want a little something soft and romantic for this spot. Of course, I wanted pink, candlelight and use what I have. Those were my 3 key points.

This past summer we went camping in Ohio at Sauder Village. There was an antique Mall there. One of the vendors was selling off all her milk glass/white glass items. I bought a really nice assortment of pretty things. this was my most expensive piece I bought for a whopping .50 cents! It's a really nice large size compote. I used some shredded metallic pink paper and my $1.99 pink mercury glass candle holder. Super simple and very pretty.

And now the pretty glow.......

  2. My mother had a collection of milk glass that one of my nieces now has. I always liked it. Your compote is lovely and the pink mercury glass is delightful!
