Hello Everyone,
Here is a new item I will be featuring this week. I am planning to create more of these "rocks." Of course they are made of soap. These are marble. I am now working on Citrine. I am planning to soap my way through the world of gemstones, rocks, and minerals.

Between that and working on my photography skills, I have been pretty busy.

Have a wonderful week everyone. Thanks for stopping by.

Roses, Roses, Roses...and a little Romance!

Hello Everyone,
I just had to post today. This is one of my new photographs. I believe it is an improvement over my usual work. I am featuring one of my Rose Soaps. Also in the photo is a lovely antique white iron and crackled glass votive which I purchased from Dawn at My Hydrangea Home. Dawn has many lovely items for sale. It is a treat to wander through her site.

Another reason for today's post is to remind everyone that tomorrow is Pink Friday. One of our favorite themes is featured, Romantically Roses. Be sure to visit all participating Make Mine Pink boutiques. You'll find lots of roses and romance. Happy shopping.

The Return of Pink Friday!

Hello Everyone,
Pink Friday has returned. Everyone at Make Mink Pink is just delighted. We all have some very exciting Pink Fridays planned. At Savon Marie, we are celebrating Pink Friday with our version of Pink Friday Soap. Our inspiration was the new Pink Friday logo. We are still working on a few finishing touches, but this is what we will be offering on Pink Friday as a gift with purchase of $12 or more.
See you on Pink Friday!

A Make Mine Pink Christmas

Hello Everyone,
Yes, Christmas is over , and for some it may even seem to be long gone. I just took my tree and decorations down yesterday because I had company over the week end. It occurred to me that a lot of my Christmas items came from my Make Mine Pink sisters. So I decided to photograph them.

The first three items are from my secret sister, who was Dianne from Mama's Pocketbook. The first is a cardinal and according to legend good fortune comes to those who have a cardinal in their tree. The second is a lovely stylized pine cone. The third is a tree topper. The rose under it has been our tree topper since the first tree in my own home. So I just put it under Dianne's wonderful Santa.

Next is a votive holder from Dawn at My Hydrangea Home. My (flameless) votive is surrounded by glitter jingle bells from Whimsy Pink. The second picture shows a white tree also from Dianne, A snow lady from Susie of The Polka Dot Rose, and I am so sorry to say that I forgot which person I purchased the aqua jester from, but I do love him. He is so happy. If you recognize him, send me your link.The little pink thing is a snow globe I purchased from Duane Reade, a drug store here in NY. It was only $4.99!!

These last two are an ornament from Susie and a cupcake from Patty of Pink Hugs Sweet Shoppe. This ornament is one of my many favorites. It is clear glass filled with sand and shells and lovely blue sequins and sparles. Next to it is one of Patty's cupcakes. It was beautiful. I sat it in the tree for this photo, but it was really displayed on a table. I also had some of Patty's miniature cupcakes in the tree. They were so adorable.
Well, that's it. As you can see, Make Mine Pink made my Christmas very lovely. That's because you are all so talented.
I want to apologize to Carol of Clutterbug Studio and Lilli Blue of Lilli's Vintage Rescues. I purchased a stocking from Lilli and a Pixie Yourself from Carol. Both items were given as gifts before I got this idea. But they were both a bid success.
Thanks and Happy New Year to all.

P. S. Did I mention how I hate trying to arrange pictures on Blogger?
