Always pretty in pink

I haven't taken part in Beverly's PINK SATURDAY for ages, but a little boot fair purchase made me think that I really oughta. One of my favourite sellers was at the boot fair the last time I went, and I had to purchase a few things, of course. You see, this lovely fella has been selling beads and sequins from his aunt's estate for the last few years. His auntie was a dressmaker, specialising in beaded evening gowns and costumes, and going by what her family has been selling over the last 4 or 5 years, her stash must have been enormous! Last Sunday, amongst other things, I bought a bag of these absolutely gorgeous very light shell pink sequins from him and I really wanted to show them to you, because they are so so pretty. Had to include a few other pinks as well though, lol, you know me, a couple of pics are never enough for a post!
Anyhoo, here are the sequins I so fell in love with -





And here are a few other pinks, which I brought back from France -




I'll show you some of the other goodies I bought from him in another post.

Thanks for stopping by. Toodlepip xxx
