looking back and keepers...

Good Morning!  I hope you all enjoyed your weekend!!

I had a busy weekend that included more purging, painting, cleaning and organizing.  My downstairs project made some great headway yesterday with the painting getting finished in one area and the shelving units all installed (thanks Jim!).  Today I am hoping to put the space back together, tidy it up and get a bit organized.

On Saturday my booth received a few recent pink~rose purges from my nest...

I have had these for a few years and have enjoyed them around my  nest...

I seem to only use these two in the same spot and I have already put my vignette together here for Valentine's Day and I did not use either one.  The next treasure that will soon leave my nest is this one...

While I love it, especially the frame, it just does not seem to fit in around here to me anymore.  I thought about taking the painting out and keeping the frame but I think they belong together.  Now I just need to find the right replacement which will most likely be a mirror (or two or three). 

Now while most of the pinks and roses are disappearing around here, there are a few keepers like this mirror...

I couldn't decide which photo I liked best!

I love the subtle detail...
I found the most pink in my Paris hotel suite.  My pink suitcases...
My bedside clock with the sweet plaque on the top...

And my sentimental favorite ~ my Pink Pin Money Bank...
I sure did not think I would have a post so full of pinks and roses anymore!  I guess I have just been doing a bit of reminiscing since my One Year Blog Anniversary is coming up this week!  Have you entered my giveaway yet?  If not, hurry up, it ends Wednesday at midnight!

I am joining The house in the roses for Show Off Your Cottage Monday.  Thank you for hosting Cielo!

Oh, and by the way, did Sam Elliot make any of you football fans smile yesterday too?

Funny how our styles change. I have a few pieces making their exit. Nice to have a booth so we can do that. Love the mirror and pink suitcases.

Sounds like you had a productive weekend. We had family here so I need to get busy!

Have a nice Monday!

Oh~I would have a hard time parting with that mirror too. It is a sad/pleasurable part of life to start parting with something that we loved so much at onetime that we could never imagine NOT having it. But, once you get rid of some of the old it makes way for the new, evolved you, doesn't it? I am happy to be going along for the ride with you as you make your changes. Hugs-Diana

Sandi said...

Hi Sandi,
Love your treasures, but isn't it funny how much our tastes change over the years. Things that I thought I would never part with are out the door. That clock is sweet!!
Blessings~

You are an inspiration. I am trying to declutter and it makes sense to pass along things once loved to allow someone else to appreciate and enjoy them.

I live outside Green Bay - everyone is celebrating here, football fan or not.

It's great that you could enjoy your rose pictures in your home and now can sell them to someone else who will also appreciate them.
Sounds like you've been one busy girl!!

Hi Sandi,
What amazingly gorgeous treasures!!
I'm the same way, I've purged a lot of my stuff as well. My colors and style have changed over the last few years.
That mirror is fantastic, I love the pink roses on it.
Have a great day.
Sincerely,
Melinda
