sweet lil' pink shelf..

Hello to all my sweet bloggy girlies,
I thought I would sneak this in today.. I actually bought this from an old 1900's home,it was a built in kitchen nook shelf I believe.. Of course, to them it was probably just functional.. maybe for spices, or small dishes..(not sure)..But, it was already painted PINK..Soo, of course your friend(me) had to buy this.. I've had it hanging in a corner in my front room.. I have some pretty haviland dishes, and my cream lace dishes in and around it !! I cleaned everything yesterday, and thought to share this sweet find with you !! Anytime I see an old home,being torn down,refurbished, or worked on, I will check it out !! Usually the workers will let you take or buy from them.. BUT, they make us do the removing, soo of course it's the only time I WILL get down and dirty girls..Anything for a pink treasure..Well ,I hope you enjoyed another peek into my pinky haven.. Someday, I might surprise you all with a find that isn't pink..someday..hahaha..I can't help myself..Hope this is finding you all well and feeling nothing but blessed.. God is good..right.. hugs to you all again..~tea~xo


  1. Oh my, that shelf is gorgeous, Tea, and I also love all your treasures that you put in it and on it. I never even thought about going to homes that are being torn down or refurbished to find treasures, such a great idea.
    Have a beautifully blessed weekend!

  4. Hi Marydon,
    Believe me, if Rebecca was here, YES, I would have her paint roses.. This would be way to costly to send off to her !! Believe me, I have sent things for her to fix up for me.. She promises that when she returns, she's bringing her paint and brushes.. yippee..Can you imagine, I'll end up with painted roses on my that's an idea..hahaha.. hugs ~tea~

  5. It looks great Tanza with all your pretties inside...and you don't even have to paint it. I love those kinds of treasures.

  6. It is very pretty and it was already the perfect I like how you decorated it. Your not gonna believe what I got at an old house that someone was remodeling! A PINK TOILET! I thought about blogging about it but I thought everyone would think that I was CRAZY! You don't think that I'm crazy, do you? LOL Anyway it was out by the roadside to be thrown away, but when Stevie went to ask them for it, they made him pay $20.00 for it and he loaded it in his truck for me! He said that it is the first time that he has ever done that! LOL I'm thinking about putting it in my shabby shed. If I don't do that, I could always put it in the flower bed and plant flowers in it! ( I've always thought that was so tacky!) lol Anyway I thought that I would share this with you. I love your find! I love pink and green!
