Shocking pink.... or have I lost my mind

I know these look red in the pic , but they are hot
pink or fushia and the beginning of my porch redo.
I wanted it shabby and pink but with a punch.....
I guess I got that. I don't know why I even bother
with a porch as the weather has been so rainy (only 3
sunny days this month!) that I had to paint them in
my kitchen . Now I am adding pastels and will put
up more pics when it is done. (I really hate that it looks red
and you can't see the true pink).

This pic is for Lori especially. This is what I found
at the flea market this week....well some not all of it,
yep there was more! One dealer that I really like
had a huge FREE pile! Well, that was all my SIL and I
needed to hear. It was a huge blessing as I was able to
snag glasses for my daughter, a Haeger vase in matte white
that I collect , some candlewick for my sister and a pink
Lefton piece at the top of this photo. I didn't get a pic of the
things I gave away, well, before I gave them away, but I
felt like a kid at Christmas and Santa Claus at the same
time. Thanks Tiffany!!
