Worn & Wonderful ~ Pink Saturday

Decorating with cast offs. They're pink ..... a wonderful worn shade of pink! What's not to like? Lay a pair of old pink ballet slippers on a pile of vintage books as a focal point. Add pretty old pink velvet ribbons and hang them from a mirror or a wonderful old print or a romantic Victorian painting of roses or off a bedpost. Adding just a bit of whimsy and textural feel to a room can make all the difference from a ho hum room to a WOW room. It's a good thing! Keep those eyes open when you are at yard sales and thrifts. And look at things in a new light. Happy Pink Saturday you all. Now leap on over to Beverly's at How Sweet the Sound for a whole list of pink beauties. :)

You know, now that I think about it, there was not a lot of light pink in India......all the pink was very strong and bold! I just loved all the rich colors we saw :)

There is something so classy and elegant about ballet slippers, I think of classy ladies like Audrey Hepburn or Princess Grace when I see them.

These pretty little ballet slippers look very well worn, some precious little girl was on her way to her dreams!

Your "pink" decorating ideas are very romantic and sweet~it just takes a little imagination. Thanks for the inspiration!

Such pretty little shoes!! Love the idea of hanging them off a picture!!

Nana Net said...

Oh the color of pink is such a wonderful color. It reminds me of dreams from yesterdays gone by. But yet of ones that my little great-nieces have now!
The slippers surely look like whoever owned them before got much use out of them! To which I say "Way to Go." Enjoy this weekend and know that we are getting some much needed rain here in NC.
Blessings,
Nana Net

Ballet slippers always remind me of when I was little and took dance class. I wasn't any good at it, but whenever I see those slippers I remember the big, echoy studio!

Happy Pink Saturday!

What a great idea, Lynn. Brings back memories of my girls when they were little and taking ballet lessons. I just found a pair of Katie's dance shoes yesterday in a box I was going through. Now I have an idea how to display them.
