Pink Saturday ~ Leesburg, VA

Ohh, I went shopping! We arrived back from Tampa safe & sound on Monday & the next day I ventured off to downtown Leesburg, VA. I originally went to visit Four Shabby Chicks & the Leesburg Antique Emporium. The sad thing is while I went shopping there, I didn't take any pictures of these 2 stores. I posted above the picture of the items I bought; skeleton keys, escutcheons, a beautiful steel cut buckle & 2 bisque doll legs. I was in heaven. I didn't want to leave the store, but I couldn't abandon my boys at home. I also had to remember where I parked my car!

Here are the pictures of the places I did take. Of course, pink included!












Persnickety Palm Rats, they were CLOSED!












The Cottage: Love Love Love this place. So chippy & vintage & shabby. Did I mention I LOVE this place. They had everything here, furniture, decorating items, craft supplies, jewelry...













The Pink Shop: And yes, there was a Pink Shop. There was some pink there but it was more of gag gifts & imported jewelry. Not the pink I was expecting.

Make sure to visit Beverly & take a look at all the participants. There's normally a huge number of us blogging about pink.

Oh, I can't wait to visit Leesburg. Once upon a time I went for training for Xerox there. I love the Inspire Company owned by Amy Powers. I believe she has her adorable things in the Cottage. What a delightful place. Your photographs are so inviting. Happy Pink Saturday.

I love, love, love the Cottage as well. I can't help but walk out with my arms full. Unfortunately it is waaaaaay to close to where I live, so it is a wee bit dangerous.

The pink looks so nice next to your black background... Seems liek you had a great trip. Isn't it amazing how store names don't always represent what we want to see. :)Ellen
