In the pink!


Today I decided to blog all things pink!
Daughter M. helped me to make these gorgeous, little, sequined cushions. We found a beautiful jacket in our local charity shop and just couldn't resist "up-cycling" it. The result.... two tiny, pale pink, silky cushions 13" x 10".
They have a soft, pink suedette reverse side and a little "pillow case" closure with press studs.
I will pop them in the blog shop once we have had our post-sale clear out. The sale ends next Monday 31st.



Now for the rest of the pinkiness in my house this week!!
Tulips from M's friend. I re-covered a little bedroom seat for her so she gave me these - a lovely breath of Springtime. (Sadly the weather isn't very Spring-like - look at the frost on the hillside!)



The cyclamen was a Christmas gift and is looking very perky now Wipso!!!


And this delicate blossom is a tiny Dendrobium orchid that flowers, just occasionally, to surprise me! It has about five blooms at the moment and is so pretty.

Fab pinkiness Jo, I saw the frost on the hillside driving to Craven Arms yesterday!! Just had a lady in the shop asking about the bears you and Annie had at the craft fair, she bought one but wants more - gave her your blog shop address. Love those cushions too. xxx

The frost is set to last for a while longer so concentrating on pink is not a bad idea.
Gorgeous little cushions.

Great use of the jacket... amazing cushions...

At first glance I thought the view through the window was a photo... a little set up vignette....

Hi Jo,

Before I forget, what a truly stunning photo of the snow on the countryside youve got at the top of your blog. Ive not seen very often so it is always a magical sight for me. Just beautiful!

What a lovely pink post today Jo, those sparkly cushions are be-dazzling and your flowers and plants so beautiful!
