Hello Pink Saturday

It can't be Friday already.....It seems like it was just Monday. Oh I do wish life would slow down for a bit....
I really believe our winter is ending as our tulips are poking through the soil and a lilac bush has big green swollen buds....such a welcome sight! And we saw our first Robin....Oh, that was a happy moment! And to find more happiness, be sure and visit Beverly and all the wonderful blogs loving pink!

As I say goodbye to winter I have to say this is a winter I snuggled down and really enjoyed! I told you in an earlier post, how I was having a love affair with my warm and cozy bed...looking forward to getting comfy and cozy under the quilts and my special "blankie" and my hotwater bottle....such a comfort! I never have had a winter like this and I am grateful for it. It is hard to explain, but I needed just what it gave me...comfort, peace and some much needed healing of the soul! I hate saying goodbye to the long nights, but I welcome the longer evenings when we can be out enjoying the yard and the birds....each season offers such delights.

Do you like Southern Belles as I do? Pretty ones that are in great condition are getting harder and harder to find. Here are two I just listed on the Website

Click on the pictures and you can see them up closer....aren't they sweet?

Now I am off to say "Hi" to you!
Have a wonderful weekend!

I love the Southern Belles and have come across them before, but like you mentioned, they are getting harder and harder to find.
I got your post Jil, thanks so much. Happy Pink Saturday, Char

I know what you mean about winter and agree with you completely. Sometimes a body just needs to snuggle up with a warm blankie! Your Southern Belles are beautiful! Hugs,

Hello fellow Canadian blogger. Nice to meet you.
Lake Huron, nice. I'm near Ottawa.
I would like you to put a hold on those sweet southern bells if you don't mind.
Please email me at for the price and shipping since I'm your neighbour, lol.
Happy PS and thanks for the sweet Birthday wishes.
Love Claudie

These embroiderys remind me of when I was little and my grandmere taught me to embroider on flour sack kitchen towels. I still have those towels & have created this same style on some of our pillowcases. Happy PS!

Oh I just love your Southern belles!

Last Monday I did a tutorial on a pink party favor which you might enjoy. I am now organizing a Spring altered matchbook swap if you are interested.

Happy Pink Saturday!

I love these southern belle linens you have. You are right, you do not see them much anymore.

Jenny S said...

Those are beautiful!! I have seen some amazing little girls dresses made from the old pillowcases! Happy Pink Saturday! Thanks for visiting!

Love those pretty Southern Belles! They are getting rather hard to find, and when you do, they can be a bit pricey ~ Wishing you a wonderful weekend, and Happy PS to you :)

Terri Morse said...

Hi Jil! I adore vintage linens and your Southern belles are wonderful. The colors are so sweet and soft! I agree with you-winter does have one advantage, and that's the comfort of snuggling into a warm bed. Have a lovely weekend. Terri

fannipauline said...

I probably have 70 or more Southern Belles........I love mine, but maybe should think of selling some,,,,but I probably will not......All of mine are vintage and have lovely lace. I just have a "thing" for the Belles. Yours are very pretty. I Hope you have a great weekend and enjoy the starting of spring. I have on my AC in So. CA.........
Hugs to you

Oh Jill, I did not enjoy our winter. Thankfully not as bitter cold as last year but still cold enough! We are so very happy to welcome spring!
Love your Southern Belles.

Happy Pink Saturday Jil!

I wanted to thank you for visiting my blog and leaving your sweet comments. Your blog is so beautiful! I love the southern belles! It reminds me of the embroidery my sweet grandma is so good at. HPS! Blessings to you!
Love Tammy

Debbie@Debbie-Dabble said...

Your southern belles are lovely!!
I understand completely what you are saying about the winter. I love the long nights and you have get to enjoy the cozy lighting from lovely lamps and in my case, my holiday trees! I love the coziness of the house with all of my lace curtains on the windows. I do love snuggling up in front of the TV with a warm blanket and my jammies on my nights off!!
But I can't wait for the day when I can look out the window, admire the snow and DON'T have to drive to work in it!! LOL!!


racheld said...

Just lovely, especially on the "waistline" of that chair cushion!

And this is the first time I've ever Cursored with a beating pink heart! Cool.


Lynn@ The Vintage Nest said...

Hi Jil, I really liked your take on the long cold winter we had. Helps put it in perspective for me....who doesn't like long dark nights. I loved what you had to say. I love to find Southern Belle vintage pillowcases to make into little dresses. But it's not happening. Haven't seen too many old pillowcases lately. Happy Pink Saturday.

Jacqueline said...

The belles are just gorgeous. What pretty dresses and such pretty pinks. Hope you had a wonderful Pink SAturday!

Lynn said...

I believe my mom had the Southern Belles, which I so love, but when I closed up their home, did not find any of them. Have not seen them in my travels either. Thank you for bringing back such a special memory for me. Blessings.

Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti said...

Your Southern belles are exquisite! I've found a warm bed very cozy this snowy glad Spring has arrived!

Happy Pink Saturday!

Sandi@ Rose Chintz Cottage said...

Hi Jil,
Your southern belles are darling! We don't have tulips poking their heads out just yet but thankfully the snow is melting away! Happy Spring to you, my sweet friend.

Hi Jil! I adore that beautiful embroidery. There's something just so satisfying about both owning embroidery and also working it ourselves. I'm visiting from Kathy's Celebrate Spring party and enjoyed reading your post! Bess
