~PINK POSIES & PINK SATURDAY~



Welcome Everyone.....I hope you are having a wonderful time browsing thru all the lovely pink blogs this PINK SATURDAY...Visit Beverly of How Sweet The Sound... to find this Saturdays pink list. Thank you Beverly!

This is the last Pink Saturday I am going to be a part of for the next three weeks. It is Daughter and Granchildren time. I don't think I am going to get too much accomplished in the creation department. I intend to just be with them and enjoy them and love them and love them.....lots of hugs and fun!!! I fix a special lunch they call "Mo's Lunch". (Their name for me) They put their lunches on TV trays and head for the upstairs and my sewing room and the TV. They think this is a great treat! Of course I will have all of their favorites in the pantry and the 'fridge!

If the weather will behave, we have not had summer yet...just lots of cool, rainy days, we will be down at the beach a lot.

And, we will have our traditional Tea Party and I am going on the hunt for some old hats they can decorate anyway they want....lots of ribbons and flowers....Oh, I can hardly wait! We will bake our favorite cookies for this special event..
Well, I could go on and on, but you all have other blogs you must get to so...



I took these pictures to inspire me. For about a year I have had painters block. Atleast, that is what I call it. I have new brushes and lots of interesting things to paint, but the roses will just not come......I am hoping these gorgeous roses will help. I have had three years of watercolor in college and I think I will use a water color technique.....I am hoping that what I have in my mind I will be able to do.





Pink Geraniums and Pink Double Petunias...


Above are natures beautiful pinks and below are my pink creations for this week on: EBAY >

See you in three weeks,
Jil

Hi Jil, your roses are gorgeous, I wish I could reach out and smell them. Mine, sadly, are all fried!!! No beautiful scent for me. I hope the painting goes the way you want, you do such a lovely job now. Have fun with the grand children, I won't be bothering you for awhile. Please email me when the fun is over and catch me up on what's going on. I will miss you, Happy Pink Saturday, Char

Had the Grands for a few days so I am a day late and a dollar short for Pink Saturday! We just had so much fun and time got away from me☺

But, I didn't want to miss all the pinkness that brings sunshine to my weekend. And, another cool, sun-less day. My gardens look horrible this year. Nothing is growing...sigh.

More than anything else on earth, family should be number one.

So, your sweet blog post is cheering me up! Thanks so much for giving me something pretty to look at other than the dark clouds outside my kitchen window.

I hate to be a broken record, but it's cold and gloomy here today and it rained all day yesterday! Hoping that I can get outside a bit to check out my gardens☺ Pink Saturday is bringing a little much needed and very welcome color into my home today. Thanks so much for participating. It's always so nice to visit your blog and see what's going on.

Hope your weekend is filled with sunshine and everyone you l♥ve. I'm hoping mine will be dry☺
