Pink Saturday


Today is Pink Saturday
and Bev from How Sweet The Sound
is hosting another beautiful Pink Day,
filled with Pink Post creations
all over The Land of Blog.

A little secret, Sunday is Bev's Birthday


100_2083When Celestina Marie from LaRea Rose won my giveaway, she contacted me and said that she wanted me to surprise her.


100_2083I thought how do you paint flowers for someone who paints beautiful roses like the ones on her beautiful white armoire?

100_2083So, I began to browse Celeste's blog, and besides her gorgeous creations, I found out that she had recently redecorated her guest room. Celeste is an incredible interior decorator and her home is lovely.


100_2083One look and I knew just what I would paint for her...a corner of her new guest room.


100_2083I studied the details and well,


100_2083it was so much fun painting this room for such a lovely lady.


You must stop by and visit Celeste and see her beautiful works in her shop. Celestina Maria Designs on her La Rea Rose blog "A STUDIO and INTERIOR DESIGN BLOG SHARING DECORATIVE PAINTING, ROMANTIC INTERIORS AND UNIQUE INSPIRATIONS!"

Celeste e-mailed me earlier this week, she got her painting, and she was surprised. Yay! Just look at this gorgeous mail holder that Celeste designed. Everything about her is just so lovely.

My creation

I hope that you have beautiful music serenade you this weekend. Just like this lovely melody that I believe is one of Celeste's favorite, because I borrowed this song from her playlist. It is called Ocean Isle.

Oh Karen this is absolutely beautiful and my gosh you are just the most devine artist I have ever met. I love what you painted. A pic of the room that she had designed. What a treasure. You did a magnificent job. I love your blog. So many beautiful things. I definitely am inspired to create here. Thank you for sharing. Please stop by and say hi. I would love to follow your blog, as it is so inspiring. Country Hugs, Sherry

Karen, I know she must be so thrilled. Your painting is exquisite, and it is the perfect addition to her lovely room.

You are a treasure to all of us. Happy Pink Saturday.

Celestina Marie said...

Hi Karen,
I am so honored by your lovely post. The painting is incredible and I can not thank you enough for sharing your heart with me in such a special way. I will always cherish this piece among my treasured keepsakes. You are so very talented and for me to own this incredible watercolor along with Cottage of Abundance, is so very special for me.

I forgot to ask you, did you give this painting a name? Thank you for such a special post. To be apart of Pink Saturday in this way, really is a treat.
I will also feature your giveaway in a post next week. I don't know how I will do it justice after this incredible post though.

P.S. I love the pink nails!!;)
Thank you dear friend.

Love ya, Celestina Marie

I just love posts like this, where one inspires the other and inspires the other again! I would say you are *both* very talented and what a brilliant gift giver you are! Wonderful all the way I'm going back to see what I've missed since the tea party, and putting you on my twinklestars list where you belong!

Had the Grands for a few days so I am a day late and a dollar short for Pink Saturday! We just had so much fun and time got away from me☺

But, I didn't want to miss all the pinkness that brings sunshine to my weekend. And, another cool, sun-less day. My gardens look horrible this year. Nothing is growing...sigh.

So, your sweet blog post is cheering me up! Thanks so much for giving me something pretty to look at other than the dark clouds outside my kitchen window.
