Dreaming of a Pink Christmas "Basket"

This week I put together a fun gift basket with a pink theme (of course!) for a silent auction to benefit our local school district.  I never pass up an opportunity to make something girly and pink!
The "basket" is a vintage doll cradle I recently painted.  Inside is one of my "I'm dreaming of a pink Christmas" signs, a vintage pink ruffled child's apron, a cute little wooden doll chair, a handmade pink flower hair clip, a couple of "dress-up" necklaces and an assortment of new and old pink ball ornaments.
I hope these sweet treasures make some good money for our school district and bring a smile to some special little girl's face this Christmas!

Thank you for your kind visit!  If you love pink, join me at How Sweet the Sound for Pink Saturday! 

Best Wishes and Blessings,


  1. Wow! I just happened upon your blog and it is so beautiful. I love your header! What a great gift you put together. I bet you help them earn lots.

  2. What a beautiful basket! I am sure that it received a lot of bids and, like you said, will make some little girl's Christmas so Merry! I love pink too, thus the pink in my blog and shop name. I think I'll do a pink Christmas tree post for Pink Saturday! Love your blog! Hugs, Leena

  3. Very pretty, Amanda! I'd want that for myself! Although, I do have a little granddaughter and I'm sure {if she were old enough} I'd get it for her. I'm sure this will go quickly!
