Pretty Pink Saturday

Hello All.....I am posting early to try to get a head start. Pink Saturday has grown and grown and is still growing and I need a head start!!!

My latest Southern Belle with Ribbon Embroidery....This one is sold, but another is in the works...

Teacup Pincushion Confection at my Etsy shop.....

Hope it was a wonderful summer week for all my pink loving friends....You can see, above, a bit of what I did beside the usual weeding and housework....which I do not mind. I am one of those that enjoy these tasks.... I love being in the garden and did you know that keeping a dryer sheet in your back pocket really does ward off those pesty mosquitoes? I let some of it hang out of my pocket.... I tried it as I like to garden in the evening best and that is when they are out and about works!!!

Now don't forget to go to Beverly our fabulous host that keeps this fun event going, for a list of all the pink, sweeties that are doing Pink Saturday this week.

I love glass...especially Depression glass and vintage crystals and if you do too, you will want to visit Kathy at
It is a wonderful blog of so many patterns and a great place to go to find that pattern you have been wondering about....I don't know how I have missed visiting her before...

Well, now I am off to hit the trail of Pink Saturday pink and pretty blogs....thank you for paying me a visit and leaving me comments to read. I get such joy from each of them!!

Thank you for sharing today sweet friend. Hope you aren't working to hard weeding in the garden, it has been so HOT here in Phoenix.

Have a gorgeous Pink Saturday. Please stop by and let me share mine with you as well.

Kathy Eickholt Elegant & Depression Glass to Share said...

Thanks so much for the kind words about my blog. I enjoy glass and its a pleasure writing about it. It made my day that someone enjoyed reading it.

I'll try your tip with the dryer sheets - much better than bathing in mosquito spray!

Hi Jil
I love that pretty Teacup Pincushion. No pesky Mosquito's here, our weather took a turn for the cool, it even rained last night, but I'll remember the dryer sheet, should we get warm weather. When my back heals I'll head for Roseburg, they have Sunshine there.
Have a great Day dear Friend.

Love and Hugs

Such beautiful creations of yours you are showing us today!!
You are so talented!!
Good advise about the dryer sheet.
I told my hubby who is a letter carrier to try it and he laughed and said that he already has as sometimes a dryer sheet falls out of his pant leg when walking!! Ooops!!
