Really beautiful Pink Saturday

My husband said something REALLY nice to me tonight. He said, "you really need to slow down." Seems odd, I know, but I'm always busy, mostly working six days a week. I 'think' I may be a workaholic, so I do appreciate when I do allow myself to relax, and my recent creative weekend at Paper Cowgirl was just fantastic to this end!
I am SO behind though showing all the swaps I received, and I'm embarassed to say that because I received overwhelmingly beautiful swap goodies from all of the (six or seven) swaps I participated in!
So PINK SATURDAY is going to be a day to share more of what I received.
First I want to share my Vintage Box Hat Swap AND the beautiful BOX it was delivered in!
Let's start with the box, why don't we?
EVERY surface was decorated so beautifully! I love the glittery, sparkly S!

The quotes were just PERFECT!

What a strong woman figure was Eleanor Roosevelt!

How true is that?!
And look at all the work my swap partner put into even the inside of the box!

And of course, my LOVELY hat that now adorns my dress figure in my craft room...

What a great surprise was this beauty!
Another swap I participated in was the Beauty Sash Swap, you can a peek here,
but I'm not even sure if I can do this beauty justice in this post, but I will try...
Can you see above the peek of the underside, YES, it was professionally lined and
beautifully sewn together!

It also adorns my vintage party dress and I just MUST show you different angles of it,
I think you'll be OOHing and AHHHing too!

My swap partner was concerned I might not like it!
Can you imagine?!
It's utterly to-die-for!

The PEARLS, the DREAM, the LACE, the SILK...
Yes, I can hear your sighs...

The removable glitter crown with a tissue paper flower from pattern paper...
And just one more view...

And now I'd like to show you a very original gorgeous cuff that was in our free goodie bags
for signing up for the weekend...

I'm not quite sure if it was a burlap, but I think so!
Very pretty!
Here it is on my outstretched (ink stained fingers)...

Love it too! I have a lovely cuff from a cuff swap too, but I'll save that one for another day.
I thought you might have noticed the background pretties, so I thought I'd give you a closeup of them too!
My daughter found this at good old Hobby Lobby on clearance.
I thought it needed a few vintage buttons...

And this pretty lady was from a past trip to an antiques shop in Waxahachie, I think it was, in fact, the
previous year's Paper Cowgirl Retreat!

That is all for today, gals!
I hope you'll vist my dear friend LISA at PupyLov
this Pink Saturday, as if you've ever had a comment left for you from Lisa
you'll know just how SWEET she is!

  4. I was just thinking about you wondering if you knew about the impending transfer to CA. This is not the best for us so M is putting resumes out all over the place. We are in need of divine intervention for most of the biggies right now. House, job...

    Just lovely items today. It is so fun to have a few fantasy hours visiting around. Happy Pink Saturday!

  12. Happy PiNk, Suzie

    What wonderful beautiful stuff! So glad you got away for a weekend. Your husband is right..You really need to do that more often...all work and no play is not good for you. :-) But these days I'm sure you are thrilled to even have a job with so many that lost one.

    Have a wonderful day,
    Stephanie ♥
