Pretty in Pink

For a blog with "Pink" in it's title, I feel like I am well overdo for a Pink Post! 
Well, I was definitely in a pink mood last night when I grabbed my can of Antoinette and put "Pretty in Pink" in the dvd player! 

So, today it's all about pink... 

I love Antoinette the best with a whole lot of dark wax!  It creates the perfect aged, straight out of a dilapedated farm house grungy pink patina that I love!

This is the first suitcase I have ever painted, and I am so excited by how it turned out that I can't wait to do more!  Once again I used Antoinette with a lot of dark wax and the stripes were done in Old White.  Incidentally, I was out of painter's tape and decided to give scotch tape a try to mark off the stripes...and it worked! 

I am always a little sad to prune back my Eden roses...especially when they still look this beautiful. However, it has to happen sometime, and they will bloom again soon, so I thought, why not have fun with this chore and work the clippings into my photo shoot!

Thank you so much for your sweet visit today!  I hope you have a wonderful weekend

Best Wishes and Blessings,
