Pink Wednesday! Pinwheels and a Cupcake!

Happy Pink Wednesday!! I've spent the better part of the day in the studio just like I'd hoped. Yay!! I wasn't working on bears though. To kind of ease into working again I thought I'd play with paper and glitter rather than mohair. I feel like the glitter fairy!! I found this really great glitter....crystal glitter. It's not glass but it sure sparkles like glass glitter!! LOVE it!!

So, I was experimenting with different size pinwheels and different colors too. I made yellow, blue, green, purple and patterned paper ones too! Some have pom pom centers. Some have button centers. Some are even more elaborate and have streaming ribbons! They look spectacular all gathered together in my ironstone pitcher. Though, since today is Pink Wednesday, I'm only sharing the pink ones with you.

Oh, and the little bear......that's Cupcake! More about her later though. I'm working her pattern into bunnies.....

Warmest Pink Wednesday bear hugs, Aleta

I've always wanted to make a pin wheel or two. I wonder if I could make one small enough to put on a painting?
Yours are beautiful!

Good morning Aleta,

Love your sweet pin wheels and of course, your darling little bear. Thanks for stopping by my blog for a visit yesterday. I always love hearing from you. Maybe we'll see each other sometime soon on one of our antiquing forays.

Big hugs and have a great weekend! Good luck on selling your house. I'm sending full price offer wishes your way!

Blog me sometime!!

Oh my, you are prolific! I made one pinwheel last year. That's it, just one. Putting a bouquet of them into an ironstone pitcher is a lovely idea. I enjoy your pink ones in the glass vase. And tiny bunny-bear is as sweet as can be.
