Hello Everyone:)
Gee, I think New England got more rain in two days than we got did all Summer. And the wind? Crazy, scary wind. Not a big fan of wind;)
 I am still enjoying the new setting on my camera and decided to share with you some of my pink and coral things. Hope you enjoy them.  The above photo is of two things I picked up from the Brimfield show. I love the corset, imagine having to lace it up?A zipper on the side would have been much easier.  I put it on the back of a chair and put it in the master bath. The millinery flowers are made from crepe. They are so gorgeous.

This plant is called a Bougainvillea. I believe that is how it is spelled. It is quite large. I am hoping that when it is done dropping its leaves it will take to living indoors. I had a ficus that did the same thing and it lasted a long time.It has the pretties pink flowers and great varigated leaves. I am keeping my fingers crossed.
 I hung this little pink tutu in the children's guest room. I have it decorated with lots of vintage toys.  Stella and Maci love to sleep over.
                           This is the same room. Love the pretty pink veil on
                               the old white painted dresser.

This is the guest room that I am still working on. It is the sunniest room in the house. I am thinking of wallpapering one wall with pieces of different wallpapers. I saw a picture of a room done like that in a book and in my calendar and think it looks so unique. This was one of the first $5.00 chairs that I recovered.

 Here is the nursery. I have to have a nursery because I 'need' lots and lots of grandchild:) I LOVE being a Grammie. That is a coral Mombasa net over the crib. Cheerful wallpaper on one wall to wake up to.  The last wallpaper was not a hit because Stella ripped it down very quietly while she was supposed to be napping one afternoon. Actually the little sugar took down the wall paper in our 1/2 bath too. Darn they're quick!
 I found this vintage 1931 calender at the flea market one Sunday. I fell in love with it and tacked it on the front of a cupboard in my bathroom.

Well, there you have it. Pinks and corals for a gray day. I hope you all have an extraordinary weekend, the weather is supposed to be sunny!

'Till next time.....

  1. Oh, Debra, love all your pics, but the first one of the corseted chair back is 2die4!!! Love Love LOVE that idea!

  2. Debra, Your pics are fab! Love the corset and the chair! Your wallpaper is to die for! I would love to have a scrap to play around with! Lots of cool stuff here!

  3. Such feminine touches. Aren't you amazed that our husband put up with all our pinks and lace.
    They truly are not emmaculated by it. Real men love PINK!
    Lucky grandaughters that get to sleep in that romantic room.....wallpaper or not. Now you have me wanting to see that room with torn wallpaper....sound really cool.
    Yes lots of rain. Never when we actually needed it like after 90 degree weather!


  4. That corset on the chair is lovely.

    What fun to have a guest room, childrens' guest room, and a nursery! My sister has a nursery at her house for her grandbabies. Someday I'd like to have a bunk room for our future grandbabies.

    If I were you, I'd hire Stella out for wallpaper removal jobs! I may never paper again because I've removed it, oh what a chore.

  5. Ohhhhhhhhhhhh, I LOVE that shade of Coral, perfect for a Romantic Autumn Vibe! Your rooms are so inviting and lovely.

    Thanks for the info on the wart Pumpkins, I'm wondering if they taste like a sweet Peanut then? Humnnnnnn, guess I'll find out when they go from decor to being a meal. *wink*

  6. Oh, Debra, my 2 1/2 year old granddaughter would love the tutu, as she is very much into Angelina Ballerina books at the moment. I also love the idea you mentioned of wallpapering the guest room with different types of walllpaper - sounds beautiful, and I am sure can pull it off!
