Lady in Pink, Roses, and Milk Glass

Had a busy day today getting a few projects finished to take to the shop...
Only I didn't finish them...a work in progress. 
That's what I say about the shop.
It's always a work in progress.

So I decided to add some photos that I took a while back of my favorite room-the pink room-my daughter's-room-turned-my-room.

The lady in pink is a favorite of mine.  I've seen her around town in various wardrobes, but these are my favorites and they are a permanent fixture in my pink room above my small shelf of milk glass.  Such a classy aristocrat!

I am coo-coo about mirrors.  This is one I found at a local antique store that has since closed, my favorite, "The Carriage House."  I had a booth there for a short while and as always, anything I earned was spent on things for me!  I love how the mirror catches the reflection of the other mirror and my favorite little corner.

I love pink floral prints.   These are a set and I got them locally at another antique store that has closed for $11!  They too are a permanent fixture. This one hangs on one side of the window and the other print is centered on the other side.

I love my laced milk glass plates.

A sweet little hand tatted pillow rests on my favorite recovered chair.

The bread and butter plate in the center is a marked plate that I simply could not resist.  I have never paid more than $5 for a plate to hang on my wall, but this was so sweet and pulled together my roses.  I can't believe I paid $10 for something so small.  I'm not one bit sorry!

I am most proud of my fenton milk glass collection.  It's only a small collection and in great demand right now and costs a pretty penny.  I'll keep looking for a steal. 

I'll share my collection of milk glass next time:)


  1. Hi Bonnie, I love milk glass as well. My mother had several pieces. I would have loved to have been the recipient. Thank you so much for visiting and joining me over at living life. I look forward to browsing your earlier post. Hugs! Bonnie

  2. I can see why you love your pink room! It's so pretty! I enjoyed catching up with your blog. I've been MIA in blogland - having trouble keeping up! Glad you had fun in Nashville.

  3. pretty!! I have a love of milk glass too. so classic!
    In answer to your question on the chalk paint- I've found that you have to work quickly with your brush strokes, and once it starts to set up, you can't keep brushing it or it will get gummy. I've also noticed that when I get to the bottom of a can, that the mixture get a little thicker and I don't like the way it goes on as well. (I'm also not great at taking the time to mix it well when I first open it though....)

    I've had really good luck with it so far- it's a learning curve, and I'm still figuring it out too :) Hope that helps!

  4. Love the pink room, especially the classy lady.

  5. Yes...same sweet artist! If these prints weren't yellowy (I cleaned them up for my post!) I wouldn't change them out. But...they are awful...the frames are great tho!

    SWEET POST! I missed it!
