Autumn Pink Saturday Fun


Hello Everyone And Happy Pink Saturday! Are you enjoying the fall colors? I know I am. Especially where there is a large grouping of big trees and there are lovely soft colors all mingling to give a tapestry effect! Greens, bronze, golds, wines, peaches and reds. I think it is the most beautiful sight.

Before I go any further....be sure and go to Beverly's to find all the blogs showing not only their pinks, but their fall colors as well....it should be a marvelous show!

**And, I am a proud and happy member of Shabby Cottage Shops. We are having a truly Pinkalicious Christmas Shoppe event with many adorable shops offering so many wonderful things for gift giving and for yourself....I invite you to visit every day to see the featured shop and to hunt for the hidden Christmas tree to win a $25.00 gift certificate as well as to enter in the Pink Present giveaway that will have something from all the participating shops, of which the Ruffled Rose is one. Just click on one of the buttons at the top or the sides of this post.....happy shopping!**

I would have more pictures to show, but my computer and I are at odds and I now have Vista and that changed how I edit pictures. I am slowly getting it, but I do not like it! When they have a program that works, it hate it when they make changes that are not as efficient!

Santa, are you listening? I need a new computer, printer and camera! Really I do!

So, here is a picture or what I have done on our porch. I found this old window a couple of months ago and I never got it dry brushed with white and now it will have to be a spring project, but this window will be decorated for all the holidays and the seasons.....I am looking forward to planning for each window dressing change!




Sending warm fuzzy hugs....
Jil

Happy Pink Saturday, Jil. Our leaves have pretty much all blown off as we have had a lot of wind on the Island lately. It's going to be stormy on the weekend too so what leaves are left will all be blown off after that. So, to keep from getting down with the bare branches and dark skies, I'm thinking more about Christmas. Have a wonderful Pink weekend, my friend.

Blessings,
Sandi

Hi Jill!

We had some snow today and our trees have not yet turned autumn colors..talk about wacky weather!

Thank you fr your wonderful comment about my Balboa Gardens post. Living in NYC, as I do, I love to visit gardens wherever I travel to enjoy the blooms I can't grow. I was in heaven in Balboa Park!

Our stop in La Jolla was brief, but next time I will visit the Scripps Museum of Oceanography as you suggest. I did get a chance to see some seals along the La Jolla coast --very exciting for me!

Happy Pink Saturday!

PS: I just blogged about the hotel Del..wish I could have used all the many photos I took of it!

Oh I have fallen in love with your blog which I just discovered and am now following...It was like a breath of fresh air to read your postings and see all your beautiful pictures - so relaxing and serene. I felt like I had just gone on an envigorating walk in the park. Just lovely! Mary :-)

Hi Jil,
I know what you mean about blogging. I really have not blogged all summer. In fact, it's been months since I last participated in PS.
I have just been too busy doing other things and life has gotten in the way of my time.
I hope to get back to it, but I will when I can and I don't want to worry about it. That wouldn't be good to feel so pressured either.
Thanks so much for stopping by. I am happy to hear you now have a new computer, what fun.
Be well my friend and enjoy your beautiful fall colors,
Char
