Victorian Pink Lady House

I would love to live in a Victorian Pink Lady House.....but for now,  I will just enjoy the one I have on the family room mantel.

My pink lady wasn't always pink......

She used to be.......


A fresh coat of white paint......

Pretty ribbon trims......

Pale green & pink paint.......


Rose curtains......


Now,   I can enjoy my pink lady.......

I can't wait to add fall and Christmas decor to my pink lady!

Please visit my side bar to see "Where I Party"  and stop by and visit a few of these great blogs!

  19. I just LOVE your Pink Lady Penny!

    You are one of our Featured Guests this week! #244

  20. Love your pink Lady? Did you light it with a string of Christmas lights? Individual curtains or layer of sheer behind? As a miniaturist, I would be tempted to put room pictures in each window if I found them to scale. I'm voting for fat white chenille pipe cleaner wreathes with hot pink ribbon and swags with bows for Christmas. Maybe tiny silver beads for bulbs!


It makes my day to hear from my friends!
