Pink Saturday Featuring The Cat's Meow

It has been awhile since I have joined in on Pink Saturday. I had run out of Pink inspiration, I hear you gasp, until I learned that one of my favorite shops had a new location.

This is where I go when I want Pink inspiration.

It's the Cat's Meow, a beautiful shop now in Ellenton FL, about a half hour trip from Tampa and owned by Mark and Susie Holt.

Does Pink get any better than this???

I don't think so.

This sofa is one of many of Susie's creations.

She uses some of the prettiest fabrics and knows just what to mix and match to create some of the most beautiful slipcovers.

How sweet is this room at the top of the stairs?

Don't you just want everything here?

Susie carries a beautiful line of bedding.

It makes me want to redo my bedroom every time I visit as she mixes and matches her beautiful magic often on some of wonderful Beds that she sells in her shop as well.

I love to zero in on all of the details of her decorating. Look at these lovely touches of pink.

Look at the clothing hanging in the background too.

She carries Magnolia Pearl clothing and some other romantic styles.

From beautiful painting by Christie Repasy to wonderful old chippy paint furniture, Susie has everthing you will need to fill your house with Pink that a word?

But she is not just about pink. Here is a wonderful antique green bedroom set with beautiful pink roses. Yes girls, I found my pink fix here and you can too.

Whether to come visit her shop personally or shop online, you will not be disappointed.

Just tell her Becky sent you.

Please be sure to visit my other blog for more Pink.

and then click on over to visit our wonderful host Beverly and all the other gals who love pink.

That pink sofa is something else. Not being a big "pink" fan, I was drawn to the green bed frame. That would look so beautiful in your AL home...hmmmmmmm. You could design a "green" room just for me...LOL

Thanks for the lovely tour of The Cat's Meow...

Hello Becky, thank you for your visit today. We are in KY visiting family and I am taking a few minutes to check my computer and a rest. The weather here today is very cool. Wonderful.

I love the store and all the wonderful contents. I do consider myself a Pinkie but the green bedroom set is making me drool. The couch is beautiful, as is so many other pretty pinks.

Love your post today.

The pinks are sweet but the whites are just the dreamiest! I enjoyed all of your posts on the Cat's Meow...see, she's still doing pink and roses! And boy, does she do it right! Lots there to study...
I hope your back is doing better-moving furniture is such hard work.
Thanks ever so much for the sweetest comments...they are such an encouragement to me:)

Hi Becky! I've enjoyed catching up with you today.

Sorry your daughter was ill, glad to know she is ok!

That was a nice bass your son had too~

I am so in love with everything at the Cat's Meow. OMGoodness. Drool. That pink sofa is the MOST. That green bedroom set is gorgeous.

I'm anxious to see your color choices for the house. And the laundry room! Everything is looking great!

Err.. when you mentioned scraping and painting the gingerbread I must say that's the only time I have been glad that it is not my house, lol!

Susan (Between Naps On The said...

Wow...I LOVE the green bedroom suite. I had to enlarge the room at the top of the cute!
