It's Fun to Be a Girl

When I was about to have Dear Bebe, my family threw a shower for me. Gift after gift was opened and many times I heard "well, we sure hope she likes PINK!" and "if she's going to live with Jillian she'd BETTER LIKE PINK."

Well, even if she doesn't, I got as much in her room as I could for now. Here are a few glimpses of pink:

Dear Hubs gave this rose print to me for Christmas one year while we were dating. I never thought I would end up using it in her nursery!

Instead of buying new we used an older dresser kept in the family and gave it a shabby pink rose makeover. (Decal, I wish I could paint like that!)

Pink accessories... Being a girl can be lots of fun!

Here is a chandelier brought home from a sale at Lowes by hubby. He likes to just buy things on clearance even if we have no idea how we are going to use it. My job is to figure it out, I guess! It worked great in her room. I added the pink feather tiara and gingham shades for that extra girly touch.

And last but not least I'm showing the result of one of my Bella Rosa Antiques T-Shirt transfers. I was happy with it until it was washed. Seems to me the transfer is a one time deal! It came out all wrinkly. Maybe I shouldn't put it in the dryer????

For now I'm going to hold off making more for a giveaway. I'll have to think of something else.

For more ways than you ever imagined to showcase a color check out Beverly's blog at

How Sweet the Sound.

Awesome pinks!! Love the light!! Pink is never bad. A co-workers wife did not want Pink for their child. She now "owns" Pink. New baby sister is not allowed Pink! Sorry about your decal! It looked great!!
Happy Pink Saturday♥
Hugs, Lisa

Well, you can give that man a hug, sugar!!! I wish Jack would do that also, but it's me that does those kinds of things. I'm gonna HAVE to stop it though and I truly mean that. We've run outta room!
xoxo for Lè Bèbè,

Happy Belated Pink Sat, Jillian!! We were on a family outing most of that day...and busy the next. Honestly, the days just blur by! Of course, I've also been busy watching the endings of my fav. shows....LOST and 24. I've watched both of them from the very start...I'll have to find some new favs.

Love your PINKS....sorry about the t-shirt. I did an iron on transfer for my gr. girls W. of Oz party last year. I copied something from the internet onto iron on transfer paper. It held up great. Maybe it was the brand of paper you used....I do dry mine.

Your mom looks great in her sparkly pink hat on her post today! :)

Hope all is well with you. L, dana
