Really, where did this week go? It doesn't seem like I have been working hard at the house, yard or making things this week..... I didn't do anything special, but some how another week is almost over. A week that DH and I had our 40th anniversary and were so busy trying to figure why our Grandfather Clock does not want to run....we both forgot until we were eating dinner! lol!

Beverly asked us to feature a blog this week and I am featuring That Shabby Pink Girl

Be sure and visit her blog and be dazzled by all her pinkness as well as the gorgeous creations she makes. Not only is she one of the nicest people I have met, but she is soooooo talented!!! I don't think there is anything she doesn't make and make beautifully!
**I apologize for not being able to make the link work, but you can find That Shabby Pink Girl to the right in my list of fabulous blogs to visit...just click on her name and you will go right to her.**

I encourage you all to put out your Glorious American Flags, this week, if you don't always have yours waving proudly, as the anniversary of 911 is Thursday. We all need to remember.....and give thanks, too, for our brave and dedicated troops serving us!


This IS Pink Saturday thanks to our dear host Beverly of How Sweet The Sound... Be sure to click to go to her blog for lots and lots of deliciously pink blogs...THANK YOU, BEVERLY!

Now here are a couple of things pink I made this week.......
I am setting up my blog, with a PayPal button, so if you see something you would like to purchase it will be easy to do so! If you need more pictures, please don't be shy about asking!

The clock stopped during your anniverssary dinner? Hhhmmmmm maybe it was just too perfect a moment that time just stood still. How sweet is that, if it were the reason.

Happy Pink Weekend!

Hello Jill, yes, we need to remember 9/11 of all days. So many are still suffering from that terrible day. Our flag flying is always a reminder that we are lucky to live in America.

Your pink items are so sweet. It is easy to see why they were sold.

Happy Labor Day, Jeanne
