Hello everyone and a big Welcome on this October Pink Saturday~~~Be sure to visit Beverly of How Sweet The Sound... to visit as many as you can, all the wonderful and creative women that live and love PINK!

Well, how do you all like the new pink look of my redesigned blog????? It is just what I was wanting~~~peaceful, restful and quiet.....something that is important to me right now. With life's ups and downs of late, I find myself seeking quiet, soothing places....even with my blogs.

*(Be sure and click on Adrianna's Boutique button, to the right, to see my blog where I will sell my handmade and vintage items ...Isn't it beautiful? No, I do not have anything on yet. Debbie just installed if for me today.....but within the next week I will start adding things, so do come back and check.)*

For Post Card Pretty Blogs, be sure and visit Debbi at CTG Designs~~~her link is on the right~ It is always a joy to work with her! She is a lovely lady that has wonderful design talent, and she is very patient and easy to work with as well reasonable, too!

And, that brings me to my favorite of all magazines, Romantic Country. I still enjoy and purchase Romantic Homes and Victoria, which used to be my all time favorite, but something happened with those two magazines~~~~they are no longer exciting and fresh as they once were, but I find all that happy, exciting freshness in Romantic Country. The rooms are my dream rooms, soft, sweet and soothing, but full of extraordinary personality! I love the use of the pastels and white, but not all white~~~~
Here is the cover of the new issue at news stands now, and a bit of what is inside about Rachel Ashwell and how she uses her yard sale finds as well as the title of her new exciting book.
If you don't already pick it up or subscribe to it, I hope you won't be disappointed, I guarantee!! You will be enchanted!

I love this fluffy, ruffly table skirt....I have to find the time to do one for myself.....I am not sure how hubby will receive this.....but he will time! ;-)
And, who doesn't get a thrill when you find something so luscious and perfect within your budget....Bliss it is!
Thank you for paying me a visit today!
Sending warm fuzzy hugs~~~

I've got to get this issue! I haven't seen it out yet. Maybe I will find it today. I agree with you about going to peaceful blogs. There is so much stress these days!
I love your blog.

What an absolutely lovely Pink Saturday blog post! With winter just around the corner in my corner of blog-land I'll be needing all the pink I can get until - well, until about April of next year...sigh.

Thanks so much for making me smile. I hope your weekend is filled with happiness and sunshine.

Hello Matilda! said...

Thanks for visiting ... beautiful post, I love romantic homes magazines. It's a shame that here in Argentina can not get them.


Mary said...

OMGosh Jil!
I was just sitting with this issue this morning with my tea, before everyone got up and the Saturday madness started!
I agree, Romantic Country is my favorite too.
Your blog looks just beautiful!
Happy Pink Saurday!
Love, Mary :)

Hi, Jil,
I love your new blog look, very feminine and so pretty! Debbie did a great job on it! Yes, I LOVE Romantic Country. I just got the lastest issue, and I am pouring over every page. Happy Pink Saturday to you! Vicki

HI and thank you for visiting. We don;t get this magazine here but I am going to see if they can send it. I love the pink tablecloth with the ruffles. Gorgeous.
Happy pink Saturday

I think Tom is going to have to get some new pj's in beautiful pinks with roses and learn to live in a house full of ruffles and roses. I think 90% of the men in America and the children are living in nothing but pink and white, but everyone LOVES it
I love pink and white, but have to have some brights in my life to balance it out - not always successfully however. I am always on the outside looking in. I am rogue of sorts I have discovered - never have I wanted to be like anyone else. I love the new edition of Romantic Homes too and am hard at work creating again and love it.

Jil, I love your new look. Everything is just beautiful.

And, I do love Romantic Country. There are always beautiful areas that reflect the owner's personality.

Happy Pink Saturday.

Thank you,Jil,for your sweet compliments on my blog. I just went to Picasa - a free download from Google and they have a mosaic or collage-making capability. I had to fiddle my way thru to get it to work. Also, I understand Flickr has a mosaic maker. I started to play with it yesterday but, my DH came home from work and I thought I should spend some time with him instead. Good luck, I know you can do it!
Btw, your blog is beautiful! Happy Pink Saturday :)

Vintage To Chic said...

Andrea said...

Jil - your new blog loos is really lovely!

I've enjoyed keeping up with you through your blog... and I'm hoping we can have a cup of tea or a Dr. Pepper soon and catch up in person!

I've been a busy bee -

Talk soon.

I love the way your blog looks! Totally love all the Pink! I wish I could sew well enough to make a ruffled table skirt. That is so darling. That is one of the things I loved in the magazine too! Thank You for sharing your Pinks!
