If I didn’t procrastinate so much then I’m sure these Fluffy Fancies would have been complete & ready for their ¬†‘photo shoot’….. or maybe I shouldn’t admit to this? ūüėģ

Welcome to Pink Saturday!

Seeing I won’t be¬†taking part in¬†Pink Saturday for a couple of weeks I’ve decided to show you what I’ve been working on anyway….. My Fluffy Fancy Pin Cushions

My collection of old & worn silverware includes these liqueur/sherry stem goblets which have been painted & given some gold antiquing.

I’ve added a big handful of craft stuffing contained within a covering of crushed panne velvet, to form a round ball for the a pin cushion. The cushion & beaded fringing are fixed firmly onto the goblets¬†…. but the lace & feathery embellishments are only pinned into place at the moment. The look may change slightly when I eventually finalise these trims.

So far the above design is my favourite,¬†but¬†I have more designs on the go – these¬†will all be available for sale as soon as they’re finished.

Welcome to Pink Saturday!

It’s exciting to get back into Pink Saturday. For those of you who pop in frequently, you will notice¬†I have a¬†New Look blog. This coincides nicely with my 200th blog post…. So stay tuned for a celebration to mark these two events!

While doing my ‘on again – off again’ clean up around the garage & work area I organised a small collection of teapots. Some will need to be recreated & some are more of the ‘collecting’ type. I don’t have any newer recreations to show you so I¬†fossicked¬†through my photo archives to find one old teapot which was¬†given a makeover a few year back.

Of course this can’t be used as a teapot but it can be used as a decorative piece. The teapot is¬†more pink in colour than is showing up in the photo. In the above photo it’s sitting elegantly on a recreated tray.

Old teapots make¬†charming vessels for¬†beautiful blooms …. preferably the real kind though – don’t know what I was thinking when I took this photo,¬†lol.

Vintage images and beautiful roses are two things (of many) that I love. Today I’ll combine the two¬†and share with you a few pictures which will hopefully brighten your Pinks Saturday and Valentine’s Day.

Welcome to Pink Saturday!

How sweet are these …

Roses speak love the whole world through …

Now, I usually don’t like to bombard you with lots of photos but seeing we’re combining Valentine’s Day with Pink Saturday
I thought I’d share some of my rose photos in which I have attempted to be a little creative with. I don’t have any fancy software so I’m limited with what I can do….

Fine Art?… an acrylic painting perhaps.

…. a canvas finsih.

…. sandstone or leather texture?

…. leather or sandstone finish? Whichever it is I like it.

… Hmmm, I’m not sure¬†about this grainy finish – maybe on another photo perhaps?

…. just a bit of fun!

… and finally, another vintage picture to wish you all a

A Happy Valentine’s Day

No, you’re not at the wrong blog. Wondering why my pretty looking blog has disappeared? Read on and ….

Welcome to Pink Saturday!

It’s a long story but it will return looking all fresh and with a new design. Anyone who knows me knows that I’m prone to what I call my techo ‘accidentals’. I won’t bore you with all the details but the EP Designs blog was due for a revamp over the next couple months. My ‘accidental’ means it will happen sooner rather than later – along with the introduction of a new blog – not to replace this blog but to work as an extension of it.

I won’t say any more for now, so please excuse me while I work on the changes. I hope this plain look doens’t turn you off in the meantime….. stay tuned for the new design.

Welcome to Pink Saturday! 

If you like surrounding yourself with beautiful things then your walls are a great place to start Рso, go on, hang some beautiful, decorative pieces on your walls. 

These photos show a gorgeous, long panel print of antique crockery. Just right for that Vintage Chic look.

When the walls are taken care of you can whimsically toss a gorgeous pink lace throw over your lounge chair, couch or bed.

This pink throw is also trimmed with hand-dyed fringing, made to match the lace.

It wouldn’t be the same on Pink Saturday if we didn’t include a picture of some beautiful blooms. These pink lilies looked absolutely amazing¬†– the photo does not do them justice. They stood magnificently in a glass vase at the foot of the alter in the chapel of Our Lady of the Angels.

Flowers like these do¬†last a very long time & would cheer up your home and heart continuously…. not forgetting the lovely fragrance they send out.

… And now for our weekly challenge here are a couple of participants I’d like to introduce you to¬†¬†–
