Confessions Of A Jealous Sister...

Maybe "jealous" isn't the right word, maybe
"snotty" is a better fit. Let me explain...

Bee bought these really cool "spheres"!
Look how pink & shiny they are!
And how neat they look in her apothecary

I think they are supposed to look
capiz-like, but are really just foil paper
that has been highly lacquered.

I know she didn't pay a fortune for
them, but they weren't free either.

So, when I saw these...which were free,
well, free-esque, I thought snottily, "Hee,
hee, I can get the same look for 4$!!!!" (yep,
I bought them at the 99 cent store ;)

One little hitch though...

2 of them were too big to fit in the jar!

So, with only 2 in the jar, the look just
isn't quite the same!

See, that's what I get for being a brat, huh??!

For more heartwarming tales of sisterly
love... ;)
be sure to visit our hostess, Beverly,
and have a very PS !!


  1. Cute post. Now I don't think you were a brat, you just admired her new treasure. lol Well, you can either cut them in half, get a bigger jar or put them all in a pretty bowl for the same effect. Have a HAPPY MOTHERS DAY. Hugs, Marty

  2. Oh well, you tried! I have been guilty of being a jealous sister, too! Happy Pink Saturday!

  3. LOL! Happy Pink Saturday and thanks for the smiles. ♥

  4. Hahaha,,,trouble in the family? Hey I thought your last word PS was written BS...and then I thought "oh no she wouldn't" and I had to look again. I'm a dork! Really. I'm reading too quick...I'm baking and should be in the kitchen...instead I'm drooling over your blog! Oh my! Have a wonderful weekend, sneak over to sissies and borrow one of her Pink can't just have 2 in your jar! Now can you?
    Big smile

  5. That story was just too cute lol, especially the frown face at the end!

  6. Hi M

  8. Haha. Well you'll find something to do with them and it will look great!

    All the best,

  9. Not being a brat, just trying to copy a good thing. :)

  10. Just getchew a bigger jar, honey! ♥

  11. Such a l♥vely post for Pink Saturday. This is the one day of the week when I get to visit some of the best blogs in cyberspace and indulge my passion for pink.

    Happy Mother's Day. I wish you all the peace and joy that a day in celebration of motherhood can bring. You don't have to grow a baby in your womb to be a mother...all you have to do is to l♥ve a human being with compassion and tenderness.

    We've all gotta be a little bratty every now and then to remind us that it's kinda fun ☺

  12. Oh I hear ya sister! It's hard when it just doesn't work out the way you plan! they look great though!
    Happy Pink Saturday!
    Hugs, Lisa

  13. Oh well.....maybe you can find a lovely glass bowl to put them in.

    Have a beautiful (pink) Mother's Day.

  14. Ha ha! You've got balls!
    LOL! ;)

    Thanks for the sweet comment on my blog post about the tatted baby booties! :)

  15. I am the bratty little sister in our family, always wanting what my sister has. Just kidding.

    Nice pink post. Love the apothecary jars no matter what they're filled with.

  16. Fun post! I love your sister's spheres, and yours too, but I get the fit thing. I tried that once with Xmas balls in a vase, had the same problem, they didn't lay right. Oh well. Lovely thought. Happy pink Saturday! ;)

  17. They are very pretty inside and outside the jar. It's nice to have a sister that has the pink think going also. Have a wonderful Mothers Day.


  18. sounds exactly like the kind of thing I'd do.

    I sympathize, empathize - and also like your sister's spheres

    (does that sound dirty?)

  19. Hi, thanks for popping past my blog and your mothers day wishes. We had a fab day and hoping you have a wonderful pink mothers day today! :)

  20. True Confessions! I think I'd have cheated and put in a couple of smaller Christmas ornaments. Next time, get a bigger jar. lol. Happy Pink Saturday & Happy Mother's Day to you!

  21. you achieved what you were after, great look too, Happy Pink Saturday and Happy Mothers Day, Char

  22. awww maybe you can get some smaller balls and do them yourself cause your a clever little chicky :) you can have different sizes and that would look really sweet too :)

  23. LOL! You are a hoot! I know what you mean...I have 3 sisters! Now just go get a bigger jar and settle those feathers!


  24. What a cute post. HMMM....I have some pink spheres like that. Ok...not I am off to find them. Happy Monday! ~ xo Lynn

  25. Oh that is funny AND cute! You'll just have to get a bigger jar. You know, the small feather tree ornaments would fit in your jar rather well!
