6 Shades of Pink

Ooooops!  It has been a wacky Dr. Seuss week at school.  So wacky, that I came home last night and crashed.  And I didn't get my pink post up.  I am turning 6 shades of pink.  *giggles*
Ok, better late than never, I suppose.
This is a wonderful lamp that I spotted at one of our antique malls.  I just love that couple, and the shade is so unique. 
Here's a closeup.  Aren't they the cutest pair?

These next pics are from the new magazine, Flea Market Style.
This article is about ways to use vintage funnels.  
Take a look...
Use as a bottle topper.  Isn't this beautiful?
And so simple!

Line the funnels with a coffee filter or a napkin.  Add treats or buffet items.
You will find the instructions in the magazine!

Flower Vases
Use a jelly jar lid for a base.  Once again, there are instructions on how to make these.

Well, I hope you have a fabulous Pink Saturday.
So sorry I was late.
Now, for more unique and lovely pinks, head on over to Beverly's to see the complete list of participants.  As always,  you won't be disappointed.

Back Porch Blessings,
Rebecca

I was late, too! (Which was 7 a.m. this morning, but I feel SO much pressure to do it Friday!)

Doesn't matter. I love visiting and glad I came back. I will look for old funnels now.

Thanks for stopping by.

Love the funnel ideas - really cute! You are creative and I'll bet that creativity carries over into the classroom and that your students are really lucky to have you! My daughter teaches 1st grade in Houston and she really loves it. LOVE your Maggie Bleu, reminds me of a dog I used to have who has since passed on. Labs and Goldens are the BEST! Blessings - Beth
