Little Lamp for Pink Saturday 7/17/2010

Happy pink saturday again. Please visit with Beverly of How Sweet The Sound for a list of all the participants today. I also apologize because we were out in the woods camping last weekend and therefore I didn't get the chance to visit 2 bloggers new to Pink Saturday. Sorry!

When out shopping a couple of weeks ago I spotted this darling little outdoor lamp that I could NOT pass up. I decided to buy it and froufrou it up

My favorite little pink chicks, a "nest", pink paper roses, pink garland, pink ribbon, white netting around the bottom with faux pearl trim. Everything a froufrou girl could want!

You have to look very closely to see the ruffled netting around its bottom but it is there. It's going in our bedroom.

It was always destined for this spot. Here are photos of it with different lighting on when I did the photoshoot. It's hanging on the same hook as the pompom; I just tucked it in between so it would hang below it.

I need some more things on this wall but I just haven't found what I want on there yet. I'll have to go shopping through the house and see what I can find. I'm on an austerity program (self-imposed!) to not spend money. We'll see how long that will last. I am determined however. *Sigh*...

It is on Love Bunny's side of the bed.

And I found these the other day while shopping—little pink ice cream spoons. Aren't they adorable? I just couldn't pass them up.

I do believe this clematis is going to make it finally. It's been struggling for about 4 years now but I really think it's going to be a great addition to the back very soon.

And would you look at those gorgeous blooms in purple?!

The miniature gardenias are fragrance-ing the air back there.

Finally the carpet roses are taking off. We wanted to give them a hyper-chance before we do anything around them. I think we'll lay weed fabric along that fence.

And hubs brought me in a bouquet of some roses. They're just about finished for this year.


Random Thoughts:

We have filtered water on our sink and I bought a bottle of water the other day because I wanted a sturdy bottle. I was reading it today and on the side is this: is it just us or do clouds get a bad rap? while we admit they're not as great to have around on a beach day, as say the sun, clouds are unsung heroes because they contain nature's purest source of water. meanwhile, spring water comes from the ground and contains random stuff and whatever else the animals that swim in it leave behind. that's why we copied our white puffy friends by creating smartwater. it's vapor distilled so it is in its purest original state. it's a difference you can taste...unless, of course, you have no taste buds (than you're on your own), but we don't stop there. we one-up the clouds by adding electrolytes just in case you do decide to hit the beach. unfortunately, we can't fix the whole men in thongs thing. [Lack of capitalization is on the bottle also. I didn't do it!]

Eventual foreclosure awaits us all. I'll probably receive mine before you do, but yours is in the mail. Nevertheless, until the postman comes, be happy. There is no other rational response but happiness. Despair is a foolish squandering of precious time.

Politicians promise us peace, perpetual prosperity and justice. If their promises are ever fulfilled, perhaps then I'll have more respect for their threats.

One of the greatest mysteries is what wiped out the dinosaurs, right up there with why do tornadoes always zero in on trailer parks.

Does your larder look like it has been stocked by a child with a checkbook and no adult supervision?

I don't trust those people with a plan, those who believe they know how to make a better world, which seems to always involve telling other people what they should do and how they should think. Think Hitler.

It is well known that for every television set in the house each member of the family suffers a loss of 5 IQ points. Turn it off!!

Soliloquy. One has to wonder about the people of this earth who put man/woman below all the other species. There are some who advocate ridding the earth of man/woman. This is preposterous. There is no other species above man. Animals were put here for our enjoyment, not the other way around. (Contrary to what cats might think!) But to believe this I guess you would have to read the Scriptures and understand them. Man can't possibly destroy the earth. Read sentence before the last one again. My family loves animals-cats, dogs, etc. but they wouldn't want to leave this earth to them. In the next life you will definitely have your animals. Read that other sentence again.
