Show and Tell Monday

Make Mine Pink

Since returning from my buying trip a few weeks ago, I've had a ton of projects that prevented me from posting about my super
duper trip! I'm so excited to show everyone my newest treasures!

My sweet hubby and I had the most wonderful time on this trip, he kept me going when I would complain of my sore tootsies, and achy bones...
His favorite line was.."Suck it up little girl, and keep shopping!"
I have to give him credit, he walked miles, toted humongous pieces of
furniture, haggled with prices, all the while donning a smile on his face.

After all, it wasn't just a buying trip, it was my "Birthday weekend". He treated like a princess, breakfast in bed every morning, then he would spend that time going over the itinerary with me for my goal that day.

It was such a divine trip, I wanted to share with you some of the goodies
my poor hubby had to tote! lol... never once complaining~ They're listed
in my boutique, (under the "Comforts of Home" category)

~Please stop over and take a peek~

Michele, You hit the motherload on these amazing pieces of furniture. I am so glad hubby kept you moving and motivated to spend money (we know that doesn't happen very often so we need to grab hold of it when it does). I hope you spent all his money on your birthday! lol

Those pieces are wonderful. I love the blues with the pink and whites. Very lovely.

Andie-The Brown Bee said...

Awww, thank you for the sweet words Michelle! I have toyed time and again with changing things around on my spot...maybe pink instead of the turquoisey tealy aqua color, maybe pistachio, maybe a lovely buttercream....and then someone like you says something lovely about the way it is now...and I think to myself "It's part of my 'identity', my 'brand'" I'll just have to find another way to incorporate all those other gorgeous colors! lol
Our angel is absolutely right Michelle.....EVERYTHING about your blog and home is splendifferous! xoxo
I added you to my links too...I'm sure I don't have ALL my Pinquettes ..but I'm workin' on it....=0]
