Met and Thrifty Monday

Merry Monday to you all. I am participating in Met Mondayand Thrifty Treasures today.
Visit Rhoda and Susan to check out what the others are up too. I am sure you will be amazed.
I changed my powder room from spa blue to chocolate brown a while ago. I tried keeping a tight palette of brown, cream and black but as usual I craved a bit of a change lately. So I added pink!A plate and some Depression glass...
A ceramic baby shoe...
A pale pink linen fingertip towel...
A satin trophy ribbon...
Not too much color...
Soft pink candlelight...
And of course peonies.
While I am on the pink subject, how about a thrifted Coach bag for twenty bucks! I would never pay full price for one, but I would certainly pay this for any new purse.

Pretty and thrifty and second hand, just the way I like it.

Just so you know, My next post will be 200! I am rounding up goodies for a fabulous give away so stay tuned.

Take time to seek out treasures, Pam
Pin It!

The pink is such a perfect addition...I love it with all the muted colors in that room! Beautiful! About preventing the music from playing...I went to Playlist and clicked on Post my Playlist and there are around three questions it ask...one of which is do you want auto start. This time I chose NO...the default is yes. Then I had it generate the code for my exisiting playlist and just uploaded it to my side bar as an html gadget like before. I put mine up near the top of my sidebar so folks can turn it on when they arrive if they like. :-) Happy Met and Thrifty Monday! Susan

The soft colors are just wonderful! I especially like the candles. That would be a relaxing place to unwind after a difficult day. Thank you so much for shaing.

Being a handbag diva you know I zeroed in on that Coach bag like it was a chocolate bar. Oh my gosh, could it be any yummier?
Your bathroom is beautiful. You're doing all this wonderful fluffing and I am tearing the heck out of my poor house!

This is ABSOLUTELY beautiful! I especially love the layering with the doily, satin award ribbon, etc. I may have to copy. I have a smaller award ribbon that just happens to be from my mom's birth year. I had it displayed in my guest bath when she came to visit and I had so many special touches in the bathroom for her visit that she thought I had done that on purpose! I hadn't even noticed the year until she mentioned it although it did turn out to be quite a nice serendipity. :) Kelly

Thanks for playing along! I just posted the answer. Kelly
