I am Tickled Sparkley Pink today !
My sweet bloggy friend Alison has given me another award :)



Thankyou so much Alison.You make my day sparkle too sweetpea! Im so excited, i feel like im at the Acadamey Awards...but without the Alex Perry dress and the Jimmy Choo shoes..oh and not forgetting the million dollars worth of sparkly bling......and the perfect hair and makeup..oh and the hot body with ample bosoom (oops sorry, got the bosoom..hee hee)....oh and i guess George Clooney on my arm...oh bugger really :(

BUT I DO LOVE MY AWARD and in my trackie daks (thats sweat pants i think to the U.S gals..LOL)and t.shirt covered in paint, i accept it ever so graciously :)


Now id like to pass it on to some lovelies who never fail to make my day SPARKLE.

My sweetie pie Kara @ Innocent Charms chat...awww chickie what can i say..I LUVS YA, you can always make me giggle.

Funny and oh so talented Brittany @ Adelines Shabby Cottage...the first time i read her blog i just 'Got her'..you know what i mean.Shes an awesome gal.

Sweet Amy at Bunny Rose Cottage.....talented, strong, beautiful, and always smiling even when her skies a bit grey. I have so much respect for you Amy xo

My sweet friend Cherrie @ Country Wishes..for her humour, sense of style and just all over gorgeousness! Luv Ya !

Sarah @ Gypsy Mermaid Life..talk about FUNNY and sweet and TALENTED like you have no idea! Awesome gal!

Tracie @ My Petite Maison..Oh well whats not to adore about Tracie! She's funny and clever and talented and i love that she is obsessed with Alan Rickman. An all round doll.

Now of course i saved the best for last...
MY MUMMY Coll @ collsgarden.....do i really need to say why? She's my mum, shes my best gal pal, she is everything to me. I think its so kool that my mum blogs!

I could really go on and on and on and list everyone who's on my Favs list over there to the right but it would take allllll day believe me.
Just know that in your own unique way you all make my day SPARKLE :)
{{{{{{{{hugging you all now}}}}}}}}}

Ok ok now onto JUNK
Yes JUNk
we all have it, we look for it on the roadside, we push over the elderly at markets just to get THAT PIECE (or is that just me) we MUST HAVE JUNK, WE NEED THE JUNK...its like a drug..without it we become shadows of our formerselves...let me tell you, ive seen it happen....it can be very scary.

Well anyhoo I found a great piece recently. YAY for me.
Here Tis.



Im thinking it used to be part of a coffee table maybe...Thought id clean her up and hang her from the ceiling in the kitchen maybe...with lotsa pretties hanging off..What do you think?? I'd love to hear some suggestions!

Lotsa Pink Kisses blown your way...

shan what a great find.
it would look great in the kitchen.
or a shabby dog bed with a mattress on it.
or a bench seat with lots of comfy cushions

let us know what you do with it, would love to see it finished..

hugs Nicole

Alison Gibbs said...

Hi Shann, glad you like the award!
What a fabulous find.
It would look great hung from the kitchen ceiling, or maybe turned into a lovely long footstool with a padded cushion - shabby of course.

Country Wishes said...

Tracie said...

Hi Shann,
I bet you're at my blog now - while I'm at yours, that's happened before you know! Great minds think a like. I already went and added that you left me the Sparkle Award, I'm so very proud in my PJs to accept this award - they are PINK!

George Clooney, huh? How bout you two go with me and Alan (Rickman) to the ceremony and celebrate and since both our husbands are named Shane/Shayne they can stay home & babysit (just kidding guys! We love you).

Thanks Shann - I absolutely love to come visit your blog. You know I got double-sparked today? Mands too - how great for me I feel like a real princess!

With that piece you've got, I would definitely hang it in the kitchen - pot rack, it's so pretty. I have one hanging up and I love it. Yours is extra swirly pretty.

Thanks so much - I'm on top of the world and going to go visit the other Sparkle Award Winners tomorrow.

Did you really think my speech would be under 5 minutes?

Pink and White kisses back at ya!
xoxo~Tracie

Tracie said...

Okay, I just went "home" to see if you've been there yet. Guess you're off chatting! Good for you!

Talk to you tomorrow Pink Sweetheart!

Thanks again
xo~Sparkly Tracie~

KARA said...

WOOHOO FOR ME I AM SPARKLEY, - well of course I am I am covered in Pink Glitter I mean thats is my skin tone, isn't everyones lol.
Thanks Shann and you know you mean the world to me.
Now for the junk or as I like to call it shann's amazing delights.
I looooovvvvvveeeeeee it and can so see it hanging upside down from the celing in the UK we call them pan racks, I think you should get a couple of pink saucepans hang them then some pretty bunches of pink and white flowers (dried probably) and then pretty stuff, oh I think it will look awesome, well that my idea lol. don't forget to show me.
ok ranted for long enough, tell sam kisses and hope shane is better

How is Shane feeling? I sure hope you and sweet little Sam dont get it too :( Nasty bugs are everywhere!
You are so awesome, I NEVER would have thought of hanging that from the ceiling as a pot rack, only with PRETTIES!!!! What an awesome idea! It will be gorgeous, I cant wait to see it!
