It's Beverly's Pink Saturday!

Okay. I knew it was time for Beverly's Pink Saturday ... and, though I knew I had to come up with a pink post, my mind was a complete and total pink blank.
Now, I know I could have just found more wonderful items that are available in pink - such as this Rolls Royce (which, by the way, I would be more than happy to accept if somebody felt the need to ... well, you know...)
But, then I ran across this wonderful little advertising gimmick that a smart artisan came up with! And the item isn't pink, but the background is totally pink, so I decide it would be up to the standards set for Beverly's Pink Saturday.

The advertisement/gift is wrapped in pink paper with a very clear indication of what the recipient should do: open.
Inside is a walnut - with an incredible hinge created with embroidery floss and more patience than I ever hope to have.
When the nutshell is opened, inside is a tiny book entitled "Gratitude (in a nutshell)."
Okay - isn't that cool?! You can read the way it's constructed here. It obviously is a labor of love ... and I would never have the where-with-all to make enough of them to use as advertisements for clients. But, as a special gift?! I think it's pretty nutty - er - nifty!
One final pink gift of the day (I know, this is the shortest Pink Saturday post I've ever done!) for those of you who feel the need to find the perfect accessory. Apparently this has been created so you can look cute-as-the-dickens and kill terrorists at the same time! Functional accessories will always be in!
After you've checked out all the other wonderful Pink Saturday posts, go make something beautiful!

Well, sadly, the pink gun would probably go over really well where I live....I can see the rednecks trampling down the door with their plastic in hand to buy one fer their "Lil' Ladies".......
OY.
And again......OY.
I myself am partial to the nutshell!!!!

HAHAHAHA

I can just see the headlines now "Hello Kitty's Power Shot Gun, the gun every little girl needs". Geez what else will they come up with?? That is all we need to do...give them ideas in their tiny little heads.

Love the "nut thing" cool and as for the Rolls, I should be so lucky...

Happy Pink Saturday.

I love the gratitude in a nutshell. That was great, I wouldn't mind the car either!! Happy Pink Saturday, Char

Donna @ Party Wishes said...

What an eclectic post! Rolls Royce to a Hello Kitty assault rifle...WOW!

Have a great weekend, Tristan!

Deanna said...

Hmmm, I'm not sure my DH would like me carrying an assault rifle because I might use it on him when he refuses to do the laundry but I would take the Rolls and take a spin around the Wal-Mart parking lot so my fans can see me in Pink luxury, buying canned fruit cocktail with my 35% off coupon!

That book is one tiny book to be able to fit in that small space. Aaaarrggghhhhh you need a lot of patience for that one but I guess it'll be worth it.

Mama needs a new car! (or at least a tiny book inside a walnut) How cute! I think I'll pass on the artillery today, no matter how pink.

Berlin Deluxxe said...

If I was a gangster I would roll around in the pink Rolls with the hello kitty gun at my side! Love all the pink you've shared with us!
I went to your website and took a look at your quilts some more. I gotta save up for one of those!
