Annual Cottage Charm Giveaway Winners for Ballerina Cupcake and Sparkly Mermaid Tree!

Hello My sparkly Friends!  I have the winners of my  two Giveaways for the Annual Cottage Charm Giveaway!
But first, 
please let's share  a moment of gratitude 
for all of our
 Beloved Men and Women of the 
Armed Forces
 and their families, 
Past and Present
who have worked hard every day 
 and risk life and limb 
to help keep this great nation of ours free. 
 For without their selfless dedication
 to the principles our founding fathers set out in the beginning, 
our lives just wouldn't be as blessed as they are today.
I wish I could send them all a cupcake!

So, without further ado,
The Winner of the 

Sparkly Mermaid Fairy Tree 
 Tales From an OC Cottage!
(Do you think she will spray paint it white?? LOL)
The Winner Of 

The Ballerina Celebration Fairy Cake 

Congratulations Ladies!
I wish to thank each and every one of you for participating in my Giveaway!
is still on and doesn't end till June 30th!!
Good Luck!

Happy Birthday Pink Saturday, and a BIG GIVEAWAY!!!

Hello My Sparkly Friends!
As you must have heard,
today is
Pink Saturday's 2nd Birthday!

Two years of bringing friends together every week to share our girly pinkness and visit and support each other and make friends.
This is a picture of a card I cherish by Anne Geddes
Sometimes life gets in the way of my blogging, but the one thing I can always count on is my weekly Pink Saturday Post!

Today is also the day that I introduce my
Sparkly Creation

The Custom Jewelry FairyTree!
An Original Copyrighted Design Tobi Britton Pinkpixieforest 2010

It all started with this
beautiful Brooch
from my mom.
I couldn't bring myself to
glue it to a tree!
So I came up with the solution-
a tree with Tiny Pincushions

and Ribbon Loops
to Fasten and Display
How many lovely
Vintage blingy beautiful
things do you have tucked away in a Jewelry Box??
When you win this tree-
and happily display it here!
(and how cute is the little cherub guarding your treasures from those tricky Pixies??)
The Rules-
This time it is a little more effort, but the reward is great!
1. Follow!
2. Go to my Etsy Shoppe and pick your Favorite Tree.
3. Come back and Comment about it HERE on this Post!
4. That's All Folks!
I will be making these Jewelry Trees for all Seasons and many styles so you can change your Blingy Displays all thru the year!
So after entering the giveaway, hop on over to How Sweet The Sound and wish a Very Happy Birthday and Congratulations to Miss Beverly for her lovely creation- Pink Saturday!!

This giveaway ends June 30th
Good Luck My Sparkly Pinkalicious Pinkies!
Sparkly Hugs,
Tobi and the Pixies!
Don't forget- the drawing is tonight for the Ballerina Fairy Cake and the Mermaid tree in the two posts below this!

First I will show you a beautiful Pink Glass Candlestick i found last Pink Saturday at a yard sale. I think it is called slag glass, but if anyone out there knows what itis please let me know!
Next up- Two shots of my new pink Geraniums for the summer!

This last beauty aint pink, but it is purple and there is pink IN the color purple! Isn't she a beauty? I just woke up to her shining face today!
Have a lovely day filled with Pinkness, and please send healing prayers to my friend Sherry at Country Wings in Phoenix- she has pneumonia and is really sick, and my friend Jen with a really bad back. Thank you all.
Sparkly Pink Hugs,
