Make Mine Pink Friday

Please join us for Make Mine Pink Friday "Colors of Autumn"
The changing fall foliage provides inspiration for our indoor and outdoor decorating. We add accents from an autumn palette of copper, rust, green, gold and pink to highlight forgotten nooks and crannies. We warm up your our homes with the colors of falling leaves… orange, brown and yellow.
Perhaps an attempt at keeping the autumn colors just a little longer.

Bethany Lowe & More arriving ...

What is all this you say?? Why it is boxes and boxes of new Holiday merchandise that has been arriving daily. I just love this time of year!! I can't wait to get everything unpacked, photoed, and uploaded to my site. Here is a sneak peak of a few Bethany Lowe designs ...

Also, I have been getting quite a bit of quality time to get back to my studio and painting. This piece was very plain so I added embellishments to the top, bottom and drawers. It is hand painted in white dove and still needs distressing and glass knobs.

A friend gave me this cute vintage hamper ... I will be painting the top ... just haven't decided what color yet.

I had a pastel attack last week and decided to change things up a bit. I did my usual white on the coffee table, then pink on the cute stool and turquoise on the two tables.

This piece has been in my studio for way too long. I'm glad it's finally done and moving on to the shop this week.

Thanks for visiting ...

Make Mine Pink Friday

Please join us for shopping with a twist
on Friday October 23, 2009
as we present "Pumpkins and Spice"
With the return of autumn come the familiar feelings of comfort, happy childhood memories and hope for what the future will bring. Comfortable fires and cozy kitchens surrounded by the warmth of family and friends. Crunching leaves and laughing voices. A brisk walk in the cool air. With crackling leaves under foot, the sights and smells mingle and wrap you in memory like a warm blanket on a chilly evening.

It's October in the Northeast and we had SNOW yesterday. I think the newscaster said the last time that happened was in the 80"s. My son was right out in the middle of it. It stuck for a while but was gone in the morning. It is so cold today ... I wonder if this is an indication of a snowy, cold winter?! Guess we'll know soon enough.

Make Mine Pink Shop Hop
October 5th - 11th

Please join us for our annual Make Mine Pink October Shop Hop. Pink October is always an exciting time for all of us at Make Mine Pink. It's the month that we try to give back even a little more than usual, while at the same time honoring our friends, family and customers that have had their lives touched by breast cancer. Please come and have some fun and take a chance at winning some fabulous prizes. Also check out the participating boutiques to see what they are doing in honor of Breast cancer awareness and PINK OCTOBER.

MMP Shop Hops are a type of contest where you try to find as many MMP "shopping bags" as you can. Each of our participating boutiques (click on the link below to see the list ) has hidden a shopping bag image on its website that says, "You Found It!" on the tag . Click that image to return to Make Mine Pink and get credit for finding it. The more bags you find, the better your chances of winning great prizes.

Cottage Flair will be giving the bracelet pictured above as a free gift for any sale of $15 or more. We will also be donating 10% of sales to the Susan G. Komen foundation.
The bracelet is also available for purchase with all proceeds being donated.
