Happy Pink Saturday ... Lovely swap

Sweet and sassy Tabitha   Creative Wings Boutique     hosted a New Year's swap and my partner was the very creative Heidi of Sugah Beez .  I was really really happy that Heidi was my swap partner because I know first hand how talented she is and that I would get a beautiful box and good stuff !
Isn't the box beautiful !  And all the precious trinkets it's filled with AND the extras. She also sent me some vintage wall paper border, it's being used in a project right now, you are seeing just a bit of what she sent.  Heh.  Thank you so much Miz Sugah Beez, I LOVE it alllllll. (())
Here is a little saucer I found while out and about.  I LOVE it and dang, now I want the plates !  How sweet is this, sigh.
I'm going to have to do a painting of this window. I'm going to be going crazy trying to find more of this pattern :)
    Please visit Beverly  How Sweet the Sound for more pinks.  She brings us the best Pink Saturdays !
    Hope  ya'll have a great week-end and a happy Pink Saturday.
 Thank you for your visits and comments and please come back again. Until then ya'll bee sweet !

      How to put together a plate wreath is in the post below.

Hi Francie, I'm a bit late responding to your comment but the weekend just plain flew by. Your swap gifts are so sweet. I did a swap once and it was so much fun. I do love your sweet plate treasure. I collected plates long ago but after moving a few times I finally sold most of them. No room because we downsized so much. I still love the pretty plates I see when thrift shopping.

Happy PS.
love, Jeanne
