Chilly Pink Saturday

Hello All....Wherever you are I hope it is not as cold as it is here. Brrrr! It is almost April and last night it got down to 9 degrees and the high today, so far, has not made it to 30! The less than one inch of snow of the first of the week turned out to be more like four and it is frozen to the ground and trees. Even though tulips and other spring flowers seem to be hardy, I wonder what this frozen snow is doing to them! Some were up about six inches ....Oh, where is Spring and some warm air????

But to happier matters....this is Saturday and you all know what that means! We are celebrating our favorite color, PINK, with Beverly . Be sure and run over to see all the wonderful blogs taking part....

I feel kind of lacking in pink this week to show you, but I did these three little "egg" bunnies and they come in this very pink wire basket...They turned out pretty cute and they sit by themselves, too. You can see more views of them at My Website

And, then while I was at it, I made three more that I listed individually on My Etsy

This is one of them....

I am keeping the noble people of Japan in my daily prayers and I hope you will join me....they are now fearing a serious breach in the reactors that could spill uncontrolled amounts of radiation....how horrific on top of all they are having to deal with! And then there was another good jolt in the ground in Myanmar which took lives....

I was saddened too, this week, by the passing of one my all time favorite actresses...Elizabeth Taylor. I have read that she had suffered great pain for some time and while I will miss her, I am happy she is now painfree and in a peaceful place.

Lets hope that next weeks news will be a bit cheerier!
Happy Pink Saturday!
Jil

Hi Jill~
Our weather is getting better but comes with high winds - makes me cranky.
Yes, I join you in praying for Japan! Thank you for encouraging people to do that.
Happy Pink Saturday!

Hi Jil :) Hopefully Spring will finally make an appearance here in Michigan, but it doesn't seem to be in any hurry :( It is nice that the sun has been shining, which helps a LITTLE bit, lol :) Your bunnies are so adorable! I can't wait to receive the sweet pink bunny I purchased from your website :) It's so cute, and you know it will be going to a good home :)

Have a great weekend my friend! Warmest hugs, Brenda

Love those little egg bunnies. They looked adorable in the very pink basket, but alone, they are just precious. Come to Florida, Spring has left and summer is here. Seriously, everything is in bloom, highs in the mid 80's this weekend. But for us, its beautiful because what is lacking is the humidity of summer. Blessings and spring will come soon.

Happy Pink Saturday Jill, Your bunnies are so cute! Spring is coming we must just wait a little longer. We stil have the heat on here in PA.

Char said...

I am so sorry that your weather isn't warmer Jil. I know that you have had enough of the cold and the white stuff. I hope it warms up soon.
I also had trouble with pink this week. I have not been creating all week and was sorely lacking anything from my studio.
Your bunnies are just as cute as can be. Happy Pink Saturday, Char

Terri Morse said...

Hi Jill! You're egg bunnies are the cutest thing! What an original idea. Their little faces remind me of the bunny slippers we had as kids. Does anyone else remember bunny slippers? It's absolutely freezing here too. My son was grumbling about shoveling snow this week :). Thank you for sharing your good thoughts and prayers for Japan. They sure seem to be walking through the fire. Have a lovely weekend! Terri

Jacqueline said...

What cute cute bunnies. I agree, I am sick of the snow and ready for spring. So sad to hear about Elizabeth Taylor, and of course I can't even imagine how difficult it is in Japan right now. My friend's brother is there and it really is a mess. Have a wonderful PS and hope it warms up.

Dru said...

Sounds like you could live next door with all the cold you're having - we got another few feet of snow this week - so spring is still a bit away for us also! Your bunnies are just adorable! Happy Pink Saturday!

Hi Jil, your bunnies are the cutest things. Especially int the little pink basket. It isn't so cold here but the skies are falling. Thunder and heavy rain. It is as dark as night here today. Spring is having a hard time here too.

I pray for Japan daily. I am so saddened by such a disaster.
Sending wishes for happier and warmer days your way.
Hugs, Jeanne

Jil your bunnies are so precious! I love bunnies and I leave mine out all year round. Guess I am always ready for Easter. Happy Pink Saturday!

KarenHarveyCox said...

It's cold today here too, but no snow so that's promising. There are people who give so much to our little world and when they leave they are surely missed. She was an amazing actress and behind the scenes a giving person. Keeping Japan in my prayers.
