Pink Saturday and a Treasure Chest

It's Saturday girls, and you know what that means. A full day of everything gorgeous and pink. Beverly over at http://howsweetthesound.typepad.com/myweblog/ once again is our gracious host for a beautiful day of pink. Be sure to swing by for a full list of participants . While putting the office back together I ran across this darling chest. It's not a large chest, but perfect for holding a few goodies. Notice I've paired it with a bunny. Yes.. I know I have quite a few of them around the house. :-) The photo here doesn't show the soft yellow, but I'm sure you can see the pink roses.

The soft green enhances the sweetness of the roses and softens the darling black latch.


When I purchased the little chest I knew it would be perfect for storing cards. It's now full to overflowing. For a while the grandson used it as "his" treasure chest. :-) Now, it's far too feminine for an 8 year old. After all they aren't the most fond of roses on their treasure chests, they're more into anything rough and tough. lol
Now that Grandma gets to use it, it's full of all the cards my little guy has given me. Instead of roses my little guy gave me tulips. Notice the bunny girls? Even at a young age he knew I loved bunnies. Isn't that just the sweetest thing? :-)) See why this little guy makes my heart sing?

I hope you enjoyed the treasure box of pink this week. Don't forget to check out all the other great pink over at http://howsweetthesound.typepad.com/myweblog/ I'll see you there.

hugs ~lynne~

Hi Lynne,
Thank you! I was a bit nervous posting this.
I really needed your support.

Your chest is precious. I always love how you pair things up and make them even more special. The bunny looks even more adorable next to it.
What a lovely place to store special memories. I have alot of decorative storage boxes with memorabilia. Love your new header photo too.

I hope you and your husband are doing well this weekend.
~Stay warm. Melissa

Don't we all love a good treasure box?! I love the contrast of the gorgeous dark latch.

Lynne, this truly is a treasure chest. How sweet. And I love all of your bunnies. This is as close as I can get to them, I am allergic to rabbits of all things! Kathy

Beautiful post!

Glenda said...

Most likely Bailey's next encounter with roses will happen when he gives/sends a bouquet to a sweet young thing that has caught his eye. Your box may not be manly but it IS beautiful.

Lynne (lynnesgiftsfromtheheart) said...

Glenda, I'm sure the encounter will come when he happens to send roses to a girl. However, at this age he says often he doesn't want to date a girl.. lol.. We both know that will change, hopefully not too soon. I really like the lego stage. :-) Hope you're having a super w/k. hugs ~lynne~

Beverly said...

Happy Pink Saturday, Lynne.

I love your treasure chest, and I know all about sweet grandsons. I have one, too.

Hi Lynne...What a cute little treasure chest! And what wonderful treasures inside!I have a stack of them, too, from my little guy! I love to look at how he's grown...from signing with a scribble to a picture and now a "real" note in 8 year old spelling!! Have a great weekend...debbie

What a treasure! I know that a bunny makes it even better! From one bunny lover to another Happy Pink Saturday! ~ Robyn

Diane said...

Happy Pink Saturday Lynne! Love the little chest & the story! Hmmm, that little pink chest would be so perfect in my guest room... ♥ Diane

Mona said...

Lynne..Good morning! I will definitely stop by and take a look at the pink goodies. Roses are everywhere in my home. The way you have the little keepsake box displayed is ...so neat. You do have the cutest bunnies.
Grandson's. Well, as I've said.."I hope he never asks me to rob a bank..because I'd just have to do it!" :) Have a wonderful, warm and peaceful day. (I love visiting here!!!)

The little chest is lovely. Happy pink Saturday

Lady Katherine said...

First, I have been trying to comment and get on your blog! I have some new security and it blocks me! I finally made it! The frozen wave is great, go to show it to hubby! The card is just too sweet! I could not believe the chest! I have a wooden clock that is in the same colors and pattern. So funny, with the remodel, lots of my things are boxed up. I came across my clock yesterday! lol I thought maybe I could do my bedroom around it? I did a guest room using it, once. Now my girls have the furniture and that guest room is now part of the family room.

I love your little treasure chest of memories! And, what an adorable little watch bunny you have guarding it! Happy Pink Saturday!

Belinda said...

Its a precious little treasure chest, Lynne. And even though your grandson outgrew the roses for his own personal use (lol!), its really sweet that he is adding to the treasures for you now. His bunny birthday card is cute as can be. :-)

White Iris Designs said...

What a perfect vessel for your cards...it is decorated nicely too!

What a dear box--I can't wait for my granddaughter to write a "To MY Grandma" card. Hope you had a good day.

That truly is a treasure chest. Not only is it pretty on the outside, the inside houses so much love.

The treasure chest is PRECIOUS! And I love the little card your grandson made is a work of art.

The Muse said...

so aptly named..treasure chest! lol....what little delights to cradle! Thanks for Pink Saturday fun!

ksarra said...

I have a wicker basket of cards too. Is there anything sweeter than a hand made card or a wildflower picked from the yard when it's given to you by a grandchild? Lynne, we truly are blessed aren't we? Have a good week friend, your visits brighten my day.

Chrissy said...

What a nice box...and what a great use for it!!! Hope you are having a good day....x00x00x0

Sandra~Romantique Inspirations~ said...

What is it about decorative storage boxes?.... I seem to be always attracted to them. You have a very nice one indeed!

Cami @ Creating Myself said...

What a great idea to keep all the cards from your grandson in a special "treasure chest". I'm stealing that one!
