Bunny Cottage, inside and out . . . Pink Saturday, February 6, 2010















Hello, dear and kind friends, and thank you for stopping by for a visit! For Pink Saturday I am showing you a new chest of drawers that I recently purchased from IKEA. Mostly you are just seeing the top of it, but I do love the new chest because it is all white. I have found that IKEA does carry quite a bit of lighter colored furniture which is what I like the most. The lamp with the Victorian couple, the rose painting, and the rose pink shelf were purchased at a nearby antique mall. There is a lady there who has a lot of roses and the shabby chic look that I prefer so I enjoy visiting her booth a lot. The last pictures are of my cottage garden. I don't know about you all, but I am needing to see some flowers blooming to brighten up this cold, cloudy winter day. Thank you, Ms. Beverly, for hosting our Pink Saturday each week!! Please go and visit Beverly and all of our pink participants by going here: http://howsweetthesound.typepad.com/my_weblog/

In the hustle and bustle of life, I need to be reminded of this scripture verse often: "Be still and know that I am God." Psalm 46:10

May you feel His nearness today! Have a wonderful weekend!! Peace and blessings are my wishes for you!!

Your pinks are so pretty! Love the little pink shelf and your flowers are lovely! We are in the middle of winter here and it's COLD! Minus 13 Celcius! Cannot wait for Spring! Have a wonderful Pink Saturday weekend. I'm not posting mine until after midnight.

Oh Vicki It is so good to see all your lovely roses today on my screen. Your garden is so pretty and I am sure that you love yours as much as I love mine. While I am enjoying this reprieve from the work, I do miss the beauty.
Your pinks inside are beautiful as well. The chest is so pretty.Isn't it great when you get a new piece to dress up?

Good morning Vicki,
That is my most favorite verse...I constantly have to remind myself to be still...so much going on in life that it's very easy to get caught up in it all. Thank you for the reminder today♥ Oh, and how I've missed my blog visits to your beautiful garden. I do hope it starts getting a bit warmer too....maybe you'll share some more pictures of your garden again soon. Have a wonderul Monday my dear friend. Oh!!!! And I love your new blog header...lovely.

Blessings,
♥Ana
