Pink Saturday

I was going through my pictures on my other computer and thought I would re-share
these with you. Look what can be done with a new empty paint can from Home Depot

Love the color of these blue flower containers that were in front of a store

Not quite pink...but yummy strawberries


Love this vintage pink cup
To see a lot more pink, visit Beverly
at How Sweet the Sound
*************
I have a question, I need a new photo printer. I don't want to
pay top dollar. I really don't need it for anything other then photos
Any ideas? I read that Epson is great, but the price for the ink is outrageous
I heard there is a nice HP, but they cheat you on ink because you cant see how much is in the container, I heard Canon makes a good one and the price of ink isn't to bad.
I would like to be able to use Costo Photo paper
I would like to stay around $100 or less.
Let me know what you have, if you like it

Love the paint can idea; so pretty. I have a HP printer and it works very well. However the ink is very expensive.

love the paint can! so pretty! I have a cheap HP printer ($49.00) ... I'm not that fond of it, I have had more expensive hp's in the past and loved them ... ink is pricey

Happy pink saturday, Laurie sweets! I'm sure you're enjoying sunshine today in your new abode. ;-)

I would have recognized that paint can art anywhere as I have a few of your things. Beautiful, honey.

Love your photos! The paint can is darling - you can paint it but I'm not sure what mine would look like or how long it would take me to make it look the way I want it. Love the flowers and berries! I'm ready for the local berries to be ripe!

I had an Epson printer and not long after the warranty was up it went 'belly-up' - called support to see what to do and they said it was a problem that can't be fixed and I would have to buy a new one but they would give me a nice discount if I would buy from them that day! No more Epsons for me! I understand a lot of the professional photographers use Epsons but they get the BIG commercial printers, I'm sure. I have an HP that has several different ink cartridges so I just replace what I use. I love it and I can check on my computer monitor to see how much ink is left in the cartridge. I buy them at Fred Meyer on sale often. They probably aren't the least expensive but this works well for me.

I have an EPSON Stylus and I'm telling you I love it. We purchased it on clearance for $39. NOT KIDDING. It is fabulous. My husband is an analyst for Xerox and he truly believes this printer does the BEST home printing jobs that he's seen. That is something coming from someone in the high-end biz.

Happy Pink Saturday!

The paint can idea is fun!

Rebecca said...

Hi Laurie! Happy Pink Saturday AGAIN! :)

The EPSON STYLUS truly is fab! The one I have is EPSON STYLUS PHOTO RX680. When my hubbs STUMBLED upon this printer there was only ONE in Oklahoma City at the time. He drove across town to get it.

I hope you can find one. For the $$$ it can't be beat!

Blessings~Rebecca
