Hello Pink Saturday Friends......I hope this was a great week for you and you are ready to stroll through all the sweet pink blogs. You know to run over to Beverly's to find everyone....Be sure and leave her a comment so she knows how much you appreciate this event! I know I do! Thank you, Beverly!

Another quiet week. Nothing wrong with that!! A little yard work, a little painting, a little sewing. Just a little of this and that. And, quite a few little naps. Mid afternoon rolls around and I find I have heavy eyes that a little shut eye takes care of. Do you suppose it is "Fall Fever?" lol! :-) With Christmas coming I am going to have to really step up my working and my cutting table is stacked with patterns and the fabrics I will be painting table is ready and waiting.

I have been working on spoons and have some listed on my WEBSITE Here is one of them. The pretty spoon rack it is hanging in was done by Celestina Marie and, of course, is not for sale. I will never part with it and in time it will go to one of my Texas granddaughters, Jacquelynn along with part of my collection of pretty and unusual silver spoons. Many belonged to my grandmother on my dad's side of the family.

Some of my Zinnias. Somehow, I only purchased seeds for the petite Zinnias. I love them, but I wanted some of the luscious big ones, too. I will have to be more careful in reading the seed packets next year! I was late in planting them because of our chilly and rainy spring, but they are in glorious bloom now! Along with the Morning Glory's!

Aren't these laces pretty all piled on one another? It is a little stack of beautiful vintage Southern Belle runners that I am deciding what to do with....

I hope you had a nice little visit....I am now off to make my Pink Saturday rounds!
Happy Pink Saturday my sweet friends!

WEll I wouldn't give it up either !
...and I have to say I've been known to catch a little wink or two in the afternoons myself. Just a short one to give a little extra boost...
Happy Pink Saturday !

Well, that is stunning, honey! I love Celeste's designs. She was in my ebay group and I was always the recipient of her gorgeous gifts.

Seems like we're ALL trying to declutter at the moment. My kids want nothing from our home so we're trying to cut down on "stuff" and not spend at all on frivolous stuff. So far we've gone great.

I don't know about Pink Saturdays! I'm going to go visit! Love your post, Linda said...

Your spoon is delightfully beautiful, Jil! The shorter days and cooler weather make me a bit heavy eyed in the afternoon too. ;o)

Happy Pink Saturday to you!

Love your pile of "beauties" I will be anxious to see what you decide to make from them. I am getting ready for my Gift/Craft Show and am so excited and anxious to see what every one is making. I expected to have more done by now - but gosh, for whatevesr reason I do not move as fast as I use to.......could it be that at nearly 81 I am perhaps slowing down a little??? No way - the heart and hands are still very young - it is just the body that is older...hahaha. Love your blog Jil - it makes me happy every week to see it.....Hugs to you

Suzann said...

Happy Pink Saturday
Suzann ~xoxo~

Holly said...

Hi Jil~
I love your spoons! They are so beautiful. What an heirloom for someone(s). I look forward to seeing what you create with the Christmas season approaching.

Sarah said...

Beautiful! Your zinnias are gorgeous! I was just thinking the other day, as I was out on a walk, that I should plant some next year. wonder how difficult they'd be to grow here in Eastern Oregon by someone with a black thumb---ha!

HaPpY pInK sAtUrDaY!
