What fun I’ve had reworking the furnishings in my office to become an office/studio! I’m not ready for the big REVEAL yet – but – here’s a few “SNEAK PINKS” to give you a little taste of my summer fun thus far:
There’s the handmade chair mat – I sometimes use it on the dining room table as a centerpiece mat for a vase of flowers:
I’ve displayed it here on my velvet Victorian footstool. It’s from my grandmother’s extensive collection of linens and laces. More on that later.
Here’s a darling pin cushion mouse with sweet pink flowers assisting him in keeping all my pins in a row:
Note the vintage pattern in the background – more on that later, too.
One of my “Born Again Bears” sits atop a pink hat box on the valet . . .
While a pretty pink bow has some of my other grandmother’s vintage greeting cards all tied up:
She kept every card she ever received since the 1920’s. I inherited three bins full – and a suitcase!
Zenobia Rose greets visitors as they enter the room with her cheerful pink snout . . .
And, my Byer’s Choice Victorian Lady Painter – Michelle-Angelica – complete with a trio of sweet pink roses in her hat, is finishing up a Landscape of Vineland History – the historic Landis Theatre – the only remaining Art Deco theatre in the state of New Jersey!
Renovated and restored to it’s original 1937 opulence with professional stage upgrades, it now serves our city as a high end Performing Arts Center. We’re very proud of it here in Vineland – and all the other amazing facts and figures of this planned utopian community that was the dream of founder, Charles K. Landis, in 1861.
That’s where I’ll be this weekend – in period attire – at gallery exhibit receptions, parades, and fireworks!
Extensive and fascinating posts on all the festivities – and the Cake Wars – coming up throughout the weekend, so do come back to visit!
Looking forward to plenty of PINK celebrations in the next 48 hours . . .
