Happy Pink Saturday !

I am thrilled to be participating in Beverly's Pink Saturday!  This is my first contribution and I thought it would be fun to share my pink Crazy Quilt purses!

First, is my Pink Rose Purse.  A vintage machine embroidered hankie with pink roses is the focal point for this one which is one of my favorites!  I use this one quite a bit!  Silk Ribbon Embroidery, charms and loads of beads & sequins give this a soft, cottage style garden look!

My next purse is my Pink Poodle Purse!  Very fun!!!  I used a vintage embroidery pattern for the poodle which I crayon tinted and then glittered.  Vintage trims and vintage buttons give this purse a lot of interest!  The trim at the bottom is from part of a vintage dress!  It makes the purse a bit heavy, but it's just so cute and so pink!

Pink Poodle Purse

This purse is my Pink Lady Purse.  I did this purse to carry around Valentine's Day.  I wanted something pink with hearts but didn't want it to scream Valentines.  I actually carry this one quite a bit.  A vintage photo of a pretty lady in pink is enhanced with hand-dyed lace.  Silk Ribbon Embroidery, beading and sequins give it dimension and sparkle.  A vintage brooch and vintage rhinestone button add charm and grace to this purse.  I finished the bottom off with vintage lace that I hand dyed.

Pink Lady Purse

Last but not least, my newest pink purse, Girl With A Doll.  A vintage photo of a little girl with her doll is the focal point for this pretty bag.  I digitally added some color to the image.  Hand-painted lace, vintage trims, beads, sequins, charms, buttons and a butterfly brooch encrust this purse and it's matching key-chain.  Notice the 3-dimensional beaded leaves!

This purse is available here.

I'd like to say thank you again to Beverly for including me in Pink Saturday.  I'm thrilled to be part of this fun pink day!  Please hop over to Beverly's How Sweet The Sound Blog and visit some of the other participants!

Hi Pumpkin,

Happy Pink Saturday (one day late). Good morning to you on this lovely Sunday morning. At least it's a beautiful day here in MA.

Thank you so much for your lovely comments on my studio yesterday. I think you are my number one fan! And for that I am thankful.

Love your purses. They are so beautiful.


Have a wonderful day.

xo Cathy

Pam, your purses are beautiful!!

Lynn @The Vintage Nest said...

I am delighted that you found The Vintage Nest and thanks so much for your sweet comment and adding me to your blogroll. We do have a lot in common. Even though I am in Virginia my son lives in Crystal Lake, IL., I think close to you. They will be flying down next week and I can hardly wait. Then we head to the beach for a week with then. We will probably fly up there for a visit close to Christmas but I always dread flying in the winter for fear I will get stuck at O'hare for three I hope you will visit my blog often. Happy Pink belated Saturday ~~ Lynn

Connie said...

Beverly said...

Girl, I have to tell you that it was love at first sight when I saw your Pink Rose Purse. Oh my! Your talent is incredible.
