Pink Parasols....

 Happy Friday and happy pink Saturday ! linking to Beverly at
How Sweet the Sound
Hope you will stop by and visit all the wonderful "Pinkies" !

The latest Shabby Lane Shops magazine is out, on newstands and on its way to subscribers.

This time I showed how I created the parasol for the Southern Belle paper doll I made for a swap.

You could use these sweet little parasols for so many things...tea parties, garden parties, showers etc. and they are fun to make.   You are limited only by your 


If you don't have a book store that is carrying the magazine you can order online at Shabby Lane Shops

Packed with articles, features, how to's, recipes and beautiful photos they are selling like hot cakes !  I am so delighted to be part of this wonderful group and magazine.

Can you see how sweet these would be at a baby or bridal shower?

Perfect for a tea party!

Add some sweet ribbons and trim....

You know I appreciate your visits and comments. Until next week, ya'll beeee sweet and come back soon.  (())

P.S.  I had Mrs. Glosser draw the number for the teacup give away... she picked . However, Karen, whose blog this is, is sister to Catherine who owns Shabby Lane Shops so I had Mrs. Glosser choose another number too ... she chose .   I will send an email to both ladies... I surely wish all of you could have received a tea cup and if I ever win the lottery....



Very sweet!
Deb :)

Your pink parasols would be a beautiful accessory for one of my dolls - I'll have to give that some more thought.

Francie, do you dream designs at night? You could write a book on designing doily parasols, and probably another one about the many uses for doilies. These are all precious.

And I thought I could only use these little umbrellas for my tropical drinks HA.

Love Claudie
I was just thinking about our meeting in N.C. I'm so so anxious.

Hi Francie,

Those are the sweetest parasols! I would like to make one,but a large size with lots of ruffles and lace. Such a cute idea. Thanks for sharing. I hope all is well with you and your family. Didn't want you to think that I forgot you.
Have a great week my sweet friend,

Your going to Nashville???? COOL. Always wanted to go there. LOVE country music.
Alan Jackson, Keith Urban, Jodi Massena were all here in Ottawa last summer. Saw them all. LOVED THEM ALL.
Oh and Dwigh Yokum *(how ever you spell it).

Have fun girlfriend. Be safe.
