Pink Saturday & a Little Giveaway

This little pincushion is list on ebay (click button on side bar)
I was going through some of my watercolor paintings and thought I would share this one with you. I painted it a few years ago.
I found the cutest table cloth that had this design on all the corners
This is a very very vintage baby shoe. One side I painted a nest with pink roses
I added a little tiny pink metal flower
This is listed on my Etsy
Check my side bar
And now for the giveaway. A pumpkin on one side and a fall watercolor "quilt" painted on the other side. If you are interested in this fall key chain and would like a chance to win it...leave me an answer to this question....What is your favorite color of pumpkin? I wish I had taken a picture of the ones at Trader Joes, it was the oddest dusty rust color.
If you're t interested in the giveaway....just say Hi!! I love hearing from you!
Please check out other Pink Saturdays
Beverly at How Sweet the Sound is our wonderful host

Your work is gorgeous, as always! And to anyone reading through the comments - Laurie's work is even MORE wonderful in person! I know, I've seen it.

My favorite color of pumpkin is a rather 'dusty' orange color, not the very bright oranges of the fake pumpkins in all the stores. I love the one on your keychain and I would be VERY happy with it! I think the shading colors make it just right!

Diane @ Four Paws and Co said...

Wow! Your rose water color is amazing! You're so talented! Love your other creations too, but I adore roses.

Your key chain is just too sweet for words! My favorite pumpkin color is the orange of real pumpkins. I bought a GIANT pumpkin at Michael's on sale BUT I need to paint it pumpkin colored-with the appropriate shading of course. It's a white one & that just isn't a fall color...

Pretty pinks today!
I have to confess, I love te good old fashion orange pumpkins. I love to drive past the fields of pumpkins around here and see all the orange pumpkins out there. I think it is a childhood memory thing!

Happy PS!

❦TattingChic said...

OMGosh! Your pin cushion is absolutely darling! I ♥ the birds nest motif you have painted on that baby shoe! It even has one of your cute birdies on it!
That pumpkin keychain is so cute!

Marilyn said...

Your artwork is absolutely gorgeous. Most of us would kill to be able to paint roses like you!

I must admit that I'm still pretty partial to decorating with white pumpkins.

Nancy @ La Chambre Rose said...

As I was looking, I thought, okay, this is the one I will comment on. And, each one was THE ONE. Gorgeous all. Happy Pink Saturday!

Prancing Pixie Studio said...

Your watercolor rose is amazing! I also love the vintage baby shoe....the little bird just finishes it off perfect!!
My favorite color pumpkins this year are the white ones....but that could change by next year!

Mary said...

Everything is lovely, but I was enchanted by your pin cushion. That is too dear for words. I hope you are having a wonderful Pink Saturday.

Lisa said...

Oh it is super cute! I love it! Pumpkins are my favorites!! Your birdies are sweet! I'll go and visit them!
Happy pink Saturday!
Hugs, Lisa

melissa said...

All your 'pinkness' is just devine!
Love the pumpkin key chain too :)

❦TattingChic said...

Waaaaaaaaait just a minute....that picture of the birdie with the tatted collar wasn't here before! Where'd you get that tatting!?! :)

Claudia said...

Everything is beautiful! Your painting is just lovely. I guess my current favorite color of pumpkin is white - but we don't have any of those around here! Happy PS!

Sandra said...

I love all your goodies for Pink Saturday, esp. the watercolor rose. It's just beautiful.

Hope your whole week is filled with Pretty and Pink.

Debbie @ said...

Oh my, your painting is lovely. I always appreciate beautiful painted roses. My hubby's grandmother painted china and painted the most gorgeous pink your is very beautiful!

Teeny Tiny cabin said...

All your creations are lovely! I so love the birdie and baby shoe!
And your beautifully painted watercolor rose is delightful!
Being a lover of different shades,textures and colors--it's so hard for me to pick a favorite. I love the way the different textures and Fall colors compliment and enhance each other. They are almost enchanting when grouped together. But I guess I would have to say good, ol'orange pumpkins are #1! It's always amazing to me to behold this lovely orange colored and charmingly shaped squash each Autumn season!
Have a wonderful weekend-Blessings to you!

Hi my friend, your work is so enchanting.. your eye for detail always amazes me.
My favorite color of pumpkin.. let's see.. the dark really dark with the touches of brown in them. They almost look vintage...always reminds me of my grandma.. my grandson asked me today if I was coming up to go Trick or Treating with him next Saturday.. so I guess that tradition swing by if you have a chance and enter my give away as well.... Happy Pink Saturday..hugs ~lynne~


Hey...Totally love your pincushions...and of course your pumpkin key chain! Normally I would tell you that I love white pumpkins...but this is ALL about pink anticipation of Jalina Rose (due in 1 week...sigh...I'm going to be a Grammy) her pumpkin sits in a lovely bubble-gum shade of pink in waiting for her! Sigh...did I mention I'm going to be a Grammy?

Deborah said...

These are lovely Laurie. I love to make pincushions too but i love your use of felt and and all the sweet little containers you use.

C said...

your pin cushions are gorgeous. i really enjoyed visiting your blog! my favorite pumpkin color is regular old traditional ORANGE ...but i do like weird shaped ones! said...

I just love your watercolor rose!

Our Back Porch said...

All of you pinks are simply wonderful. What a sweet giveaway. As far as pumpkins, while the white ones are pretty and unique, I really like the color of a real orange pumpkin. Autumn is my favorite time of year and the vibrant colors are one of the reasons why. I'm running a day behind on visiting as yesterday was a difficult one for my family {explained on my blog}. Hope you can come by for a visit and see my pinks.
Have a lovely week!

Back Porch Blessings,

What a clever pretty key chain. A great look.

Hugs, Jeanne

Diane said...

Laurie, love the rose painting!

I like white pumpkins. I've been on a white pumpkin painting spree this fall!

Last year I bought one of the styrofoam pumpkins that was an icky orange so I did a white crackle finish on it. Viola! Instant fun!
