~LAZY, HAZY SUMMER PINK SATURDAY~

Hello and Welcome to my blog this PINK SATURDAY.....This has been a week of hot, muggy stay inside weather. I have become such a sissy! Me, a desert rat and now I run to close windows and turn the air on! If we ever get to go back West, it will have to be the mountains....I let my hair get down to my shoulders and when it is warm, or I am working outside, I just put it up.....even up, I felt uncomfortable, so today, I went and got it cut....cut like 5".....if I get brave I will show you.... :-) Hubby likes it, says it becomes my face and here is the part I liked the best....showing me with his hands coming down each side of his face, he says..."it is no longer straggle-mania." I am still laughing....what would I do without this man! I had no idea, doing my hair every day, that I looked like a straggle-manic..... :-(

Don't forget to go to Beverly our dear hostess for this event we all enjoy so much, for the growing list of amazing blogs all dressed in SATURDAY PINK!

I guess you all must think this is all I do.....Southern Belles that are done with traditional embroidery and ribbon embroidery....No, but I have had several requests and so I keep doing them.....this will be my last for a while, as I have other things I have to get done.....like a few things for CHRISTMAS IN JULY AT SHABBY COTTAGE SHOPS....

THIS ONE JUST SOLD, BUT THERE ARE MORE ON THE WAY....
I love the crumpled ribbons and I keep them in pretty jars after they are dry....I had this jar open as I had just finished adding some to tags to wrapped items getting ready to be mailed....I love to make everything all pink, pastel and pretty for mailing, so when the box is opened. their purchase is like a beautiful gift....


I hope you are all enjoying these lazy summer days....
'Til Next Time....

Happy Pink Saturday Jil Sweetie...
What a beautiful share today. I can certainly feel your pain over the heat. We live in Phoenix,and the last few days it has been around 116 in the shade on my patio. I cut my hair short a year ago and I am keeping it.

Lovin the pillow that you made. You do the most beautiful work I have ever seen. So delicate and soft. I will never get tired of looking at all.

I love the photo of the ribbon streaming over the jar. It is so pretty.

Happy Pink Saturday sweetie. Thanks for sharing. Please stop by and let me share my pink post with you.

Country hugs...Sherry

This summer has been so hot here on the coast. The humidity is unbearable, but oh well, fall will be here soon.

Have a wonderful visit with your daughter and be safe.

We will be here when you get back.

Happy Pink Saturday to you my pinkie friend!

Jil, have a great time on your trip, be safe and hit the vintage shops. I have been watching the temps your way, boy you think we are bad! At least we don't have the terrible humidity. But, that being said, it's great for the skin. You get a sauna daily. Love the pillows. As always, your work is perfect. Happy Pink Saturday, Char

I can't stand the heat either, but I hate being cooped up inside. If it would just be 70 degrees every day, with a slight breeze, I'd be happy!
You do such beautiful work! That pillow is just gorgeous, and now I have to look through your blog to see more of your creations!
Happy Pink Saturday!
Carol

Vicki said...

Hi, Jil, I never tire of seeing your sweet and beautiful southern belles. Your work is extraordinary, my friend!!! I am trying to stay cool like you. We have had a scorcher here in Central Texas. There have been some rain showers in the area, and I am praying one will blow my way. Thank you for your visits and kind comments always. Have the best of weeks. Love and hugs~ Vicki

Marydon said...

G'morn, Jil ~ I don't know how I missed you on PS. Sorry. We FINALLY got a break in our 'flip me over, I'd done on that side' heatwave, horrible 5+ weeks.

Darling pillow creation, I love the vintage look.

Have a beautiful day.
