PINK SATURDAY - CAPRICES

Page after title page
For this week's post I'm shorter on time than I'd like - so here's some pages from my altered book 'Caprices'.
The back of the book with a hidden window
Showing the niche inside the window, and the drawer in the side
Another view, showing the little drawer and the bottles in more detail
Hope you like them!

It's been a hysterical week - trying to list a book on Etsy and a clearout of rubber stamps and art supplies onto eBay - it takes FOREVER to list things.

I've also put the last of my videos onto YouTube and my page here - it all takes time (see post below as well)!

So I haven't even managed to do much Pink Saturday visiting! I'll try to do better this week and catch up a bit.

Finally, please visit Beverly at How Sweet the Sound to see all the other wonderful Pink Saturday posts!

  3. What an interesting type book. I am not familiar with that. It certainly made for an interesting pink show today.

  4. Hi Susie~
    Love your altered book. An art group that I am in did a round robin a few years ago and we had 11 in the group. It was so much fun to see what everyone came up with. Yours is wonderful!
    Happy Pink Saturday!

    Happy Pink Saturday Susie Sweetie...
    What a gorgeous share this evening. I love this little book, and it is so special the way you added a little window for secret stashes, and a little drawer for treasures. Yes those little things are the element of surprise. Love them both.

    You are so talented sweet friend. I love it when you create, as when you create you share and I get to see your lovelies.

    Have a glorious weekend. Many hugs and much love, Sherry

    Have a wonderful pink weekend!

  10. You are so creative and I know that I can be on the computer way to long just doing a scrapbook page digitally. That project is just lovely.

  15. I hope you had a happy Pink Saturday. Thank you for stopping by and leaving a post about the pink coat and beauty. Your remarks were spot on and I for one would prefer focus on beauty treatments such as kindness, laughter, etc. It's far better than botox! BTW -I love your videos.

  18. They are so pretty. I like the Chanel bottle tucked inside!

    I think I read about the new Upstairs Downstairs. I'll have to go back to the website and see when they are showing it.

    Happy Pink Saturday Susie and have a great weekend!

    Susie, I just love the book. Even more special with my fave No. 5 tucked inside. (I organized my closet and unpacked some items I had hidden for the move for safe keeping and found my own No. 5 today!) Great stuff on eBay. Watched the video on your next post and then was off to The Supper Club and found out they have a venue in San Francisco close by. I almost forgot to come back and leave a comment. Hope you are done with slushy weather. Have a great week.

    I'm slowly making my way through all the PS peeps. Wow, there are a lot this week!
