Pink Saturday ~ Woo Hoo ~

Hello Pink Saturday Pals....I am a little late in getting this on as I could not get on the internet yesterday evening! I finally gave up, lit the candles in the bath and jumped into a fragrant bubble bath....computers can get me frazzled faster than anything I know!!!

I hope you all had a great week and are having fun browsing at Beverly's visiting all the wonderful blogs that celebrate pink today....She is our most gracious host!

I did lots of different things this week and the week flew by....Here are some of the strawberries I made....some have ribbon embroidery, pearls, vintage posies, ribbons, old laces and pretty fabrics.....the ornament is unscented. It is just a pretty ornament that would look sweet almost anywhere for a little accent...not just on the Christmas tree.

The picture below truly enchants me with its colors....I love the fresh green with the pop of pink in the bouquet.....I am not sure I could live with the wall paper, but I thought the picture very pretty!

And, below, is one end of the top of my Hoosiers Cabinet....I love the pitcher on top with the pretty roses. It was supposed to have a lid, but somewhere before me, it got broken I assume and so I got it for $3.00! The box behind it is a vintage candy box that I have had forever and the ruby glass candle holder is from my sweet granddaughter, Lilly. The little Mickey and Minnie are from a trip my daughter took to Disneyland and she brought them back to me, knowing how much a fan of theirs I am!!

And below....some of the many tulips I need to get planted while the weather is being nice! I think I will get started this afternoon as it is beautiful outside!

Thank you for stopping by and thank you for the comments....I love comments!
HAPPY PINK SATURDAY and have a happy week!

Jil, your strawberries are just beautiful and would look perfect anywhere in the home. You always do such gorgeous work.
I am in love with the picture of the dining room. Green always looks and feels like a breath of spring. Happy Pink Saturday, Char

The strawberries are adorable, just love them. Perfect day for planting tulips and those pinks are going to look wonderful after a long winter with no. You must show them in the spring. Happy planting and take care.

Jil - your strawberries are just beautiful - I can see a beautiful little christmas tree decorated with them and white babies breath. Wouldn't it be pretty in a bedroom or a dinning room........I really love big old fashion christmas trees in my living room by the window so people can see lots of twinkling white lights.

Happy PS,

Jil, your strawberries are adorable and wouldn't they be cute just hanging anywhere but especially on a tree! That is a lovely photo of a dining room and I love green and pink together. I look forward to having you join me for tea on Tuesday! I'll see you then. Meanwhile, Happy Pink Saturday and have a lovely weekend.

Your little strawberries are so cute. You did a wonderful job making them. Thanks so much for stopping by to say hi. I'm sorry I didn't get by sooner. We had a yard sale today and I've been busy this week getting ready for it :-)
A bath is a great idea for getting away from the frustrations of computer problems :-)

Glad you got your computer issues resolved. Always drives me batty when I try to get online and can't. Is that a sign of obsession?

Your strawberries are cute. I especially like the plaid one. Really love that pitcher on your shelf too.

Happy Pink Sunday (as it is now that I'm reading)

I love the little strawberries, they are just the cutest. I agree, I don't think I could live with the wallpaper but I did like the mix of green with the pop of pink in the floral arrangement.
Hugs, Lisa
