Thrifty Shopping, and Pretty in Pink

Remember these?

Made out of these mini match boxes?
Well, I tried some pink ones.

What do you think?
How I did it:
These are made herbal tea bags dyed pink
with thinned down food coloring.
Short tutorial on how I did it here.

My thrifty Treasures today:
Sweet little pink cupboard,
and some little vintage baby shoes, with socks!!

Now turn on your imagination for this one,
and click so you can better see it.
This will soon be a shabby white bird nest holder!
(or, maybe I'll save it for next Easter.)

Love this frame!
It will probably become a chalk board.
It is a greenish color.
I like the color, but think I would like it shabby white better.
What do you think?
Oh, not sure what I will do with the little black tin pitcher.
Just liked it.

And a cradle. I can never resist a cradle.

You did your post just right! I love it all... U R soo wonderful! Thanks from me to you!

Great "stuff" I looked over everything!
My two cents about the "greenish" frame is that yes indeed it should be white! And the little black pitcher needs some white daisies!
Happy Easter

You've posted my favorites -- love those tea bag roses. I think that the frame would look great in a shabby white chalkboard, and I can also visualize the nest holders. Love it all, and thanks so much for linking up to the boardwalk Bragfest!

They are so sweet. Tiny matchboxes but they don't look tiny when you pretty them up. The pink is lovely! Lots of great thrifty finds too. Have fun playing with them all. Many blessings, Tammy

I'm saving my Pomegranate Pizzazz (Bigelow) tea bags so I can try to make some of those pretty little roses! These bags are a dark pink and I think they'll be nice, IF I can make them look like yours!

The cradle is so sweet! Thanks for sharing! Happy Easter. ♥♫
