Show~N~Tell!

It has to be pink…. And on our trip home from MMP’s Retreat.. we found LOADS of PINK!  Through out this week, I’ll be posting our finds and sharing them with you.  Pottery is my passion next to fabric and the 1950’s Pink Parade was my favorite era!

Loma Pottery created fashionable dishes and dinnerware for the “Happy Days” era.

Colorful pottery adds spice to your decor.  After WWII, happy days reigned and life began anew for many Americans. Decor reflected those happy days with colorful additions to our lives in the form of beautiful cars, fabrics, clothing, colorful gardens and bright, airy kitchens!  Have a piece of 1951 in your kitchen today.  View this set at http://www.lafemmerose.com/Kitchen.html

Along with this wonderful Pink pottery comes a delightful find!  Remember… for me, it has to be PINK!  Buried deep within the antique store were linens of various kinds and poking out was a piece of pink that I snatched out.  Lo and behold it was a Pink Roses apron!  Wonderful delight to find and in great condition!  It holds one pink pocket, sweet abstract pink roses and ties with pink fabric ties.

I really love lace.  It takes a piece of furniture, or special event and really dresses it up! My digitized lace are new creations that are not seen in stores.  I’m working to make your home a special place of beauty, La Femme Rose style! Stitched in a rayon for stiffness or in a 50 wt cotton for delicate softness.  Your choice!  Colors available are white, cream and soft pink.

Set includes one oval doily for teapot, two round doilies for creamer and sugar, two large round doilies for tea cup and saucer and two napkin cuffs for a beautiful piece to hold your special linen napkins.

Wonderful “Pink”

I’m back to the drawing board with new and exciting gifts!  We’re releasing our lace designs and have been digitizing and rinsing lace for a week or so to get it just right.  Our lace bookmarks will be uploaded today in 10 different styles to choose from!

I decided to bring back an old favorite from my art shop… hand painted glass ornaments!  I wasn’t sure if my hand would remain steady enough to make it through the entire process, but I really surprised myself!  My husband was happy to see me painting again…

I display my glass ornaments all through the house in beautiful compote dishes.  I give them as gifts to those who visit and they are excited with them and ask when I’ll paint more to create a collection.  I secretly painted this one late last evening when my sisters weren’t here…. they like to sneak them out of the studio!

Wonderful “Pink” Design!

I don’t know about you, but I was always losing my glasses in my studio because I need them only for distance!  My sister and fellow designer, Fran told me she was going to put a “Clapper” on my glasses!  She sat this weekend and developed a beautiful holder for me to pin to my smock and I’m so excited about this design she created that I wanted to put it up for Monday Show-N-Tell!

Hand crocheted and embellished with Pink bow and heart charm, this eyeglass holder pins to your blouse, jacket or in my case, work smock and has ample space to hang your eyeglasses from!  A beautiful piece that won’t get in the way like the eyeglass lanyards and your glasses stay put!

I was so blessed by her gift to me and know you would enjoy one too!

Beautiful Roses for My Cards!

Beautiful Roses for My Cards!

My Show~N~Tell is a special one… I mentioned in chat that I was re-doing my entire home in cottage rose and promptly began to shop with my sisters!  I have an old rather extremely BORING office products index card file and never thought to upgrade that as well…

Until Lisa of MMP’s “Pale Pink & Roses” decided to finish a project she had staged for a while and never knew that it was meant for me!  I “sneaked” over to her site while other’s were also “Ooooo’ing and Ahhhh’ing” and SNATCHED it away!

I mean… which box would you rather look at… tell the truth!

Which Box?

Which Box?

A little birdie told me that Lisa is catching up on more projects and I’m going to be watching!  Why don’t you watch too by visiting Pale Pink & Roses at http://www.palepinkandroses.com  I’m sure you’re going to find something too!
