Sky Watch Friday & Pink Saturday!!

These funky clouds I captured last week...
they looked so pretty and ethereal, with
those misty trails flowing behind them!

These ones look like kites! (Or space ships...
Mulder, Scully, what is the truth?)

It has been a really humid summer, so
we have been seeing the coolest clouds...
unfortunately no rain! Oh well, you can't
have everything!

Be sure to stop by
The Official Sky Watch Blog

to see all the other wonders of the air!!!



I have always wanted an old fashioned bird cage
stand to hang a chandelier or a bird cage from...
I love that look!!! Alas, I have never found one...
yet. But as I was contemplating the little votive
birdcage that I bought at Michael's, I got a
bright idea!
So, I gathered this & that...and more this & that
and before I knew it, I had my own miniature

I used my buffet stand "stands-in" for a
bird cage stand! Can you stand it???!!!

Tissue garland, a tiny key, prisms, ribbons, feathers,
flowers, tulle...everything but the kitchen sink!

And the final little china ballerina.
She is happy to have such a pretty perch now!!!

Be sure to visit our hostess, Beverly at


to see more pink treats & treasures!!!

And while I have you all here...have you all met, Babette?
She lives at
Poussiere du Sud
Once again, I'm not quite sure how I ended up at her blog,
but what fun! Her house & garden are GORGEOUS!!!
She loves to shop for things to transform and transform
them she does!!! Furniture, nik-naks, everything...and
all in FRENCH! And even though I can only understand
a few words of each post...her pictures speak a thousand
words! Tres fab!

Have a great weekend!!

  11. Thanks for stopping by and for your kind comments. I love what you did with the birdcage arrangement! Those cloud formations are amazing. Have a wonderful weekend! Blessings, Victoria Lynn

  12. O.K. so I am on a blog break..NOT.
    Geez , what a ton of great ideas you put together. I really like your bird cage and the cup and saucer on the chairs..too cute!

  13. I LOVE your little birdcage ballerina....I'm sure she is very happy on her perch in all that pink-ness.

    LOve the pictures of the cloud daughter and I always are trying to make things out of the cloud formations.

  14. Love the birdcage and seeing your metal plate stand PINK, makes me think I may have to buy some lavendar paint for my 'jewelry' hanger. It is similar metal and needs a bit of something. Hmmmmmm.

  15. Thanks for stopping by. The only clouds we have been seeing lately are from tropical storm Fay, but I can't complain about the rain. Love that PINK. Who would have ever seashells. Have a great weekend. Jackie

  16. Your pink day clouds are soooo whispy and graceful and indeed flowing...soooo soothing...heavenly. I have really been noticing the clouds this year and I've snapped some pictures and posted them on my site too. The clouds I've posted are big stormy clouds.

    I love your birdcage! I also like birdcages and bird have made it so pretty.

    Have a pretty, heavenly day!

  17. Good morning M :)

    That is such a lovely creation, and very innovative.

  20. That third one has Wendy flying across the sky to meet Peter Pan.
    Can you see her flying left to right.
    The others too have that etherial quality that faerie tales are built on.

    Very well spotted!
