Hello All My Blogland Friends ♥ I hope you had a wonderful, wonderful Thanksgiving day and are enjoying all the left overs! I know I am. I had a turkey cranberry stuffing sandwich for breakfast. MMMmmm!!! Hubby? He opted out for a traditional breakfast. I told him he was a sissy. lol!

This is our day to celebrate pink, so go to Beverly's and you will find all the wonderful blogs to put you in a PINK frame of mind!

Just a little reminder to hop on over to SHABBY COTTAGE SHOPS BLACK FRIDAY SALE Our sale will last through Monday. You find so many treasures that you will not find at the mall and many shops are offering Free Shipping, too.
Here are some new ornaments I just finished and they are at my WEBSITE

I have to tell you a little story about my roses....Yes, I make them from clay, mixing colors and having fun doing them, but .... you will never see my finger prints on them. I had a job where I had to be finger printed and this was done at the Police Station. They tried and tried in vain to get a copy of my print. Each finger was carefully rolled in ink over and over...supervisors were brought in, but all to no avail. My print can not be lifted as my lines are too fine and shallow. Now, if that will just hold true for my face as well I will be a happy gal!

The leaves are mostly all raked and the big machine with the vacuum on the back has come down the street and sucked them all up for the city's compost pile. I took a couple pictures before they were swept and raked up as I thought they were so pretty scattered about....I wished I could leave them that way, but we had to take advantage of a warm 60 + degree day! :(

I keep our burning bushes very trimmed because of the space, but they were pretty anyway with their pinkish red leaves....

Our beautiful holiday season has begun! I wish for all of you a season full of happiness and joy ♥♥♥

Pink Saturday With A NEW Computer :)

Hello All...
Goodness, it has been a while since I posted! You would not believe the wildy busy days we have had and just when I thought all had calmed down, something else would come around the corner. I thrive on busy, but when it gets to the point that you find your shoulders up around your ears with stress and a throbbing headache to get everything done before the end of the day, well, that is just way to much "busy."

And to compound things, I have had lots and lots of computer issues, but no more. I have a new Dell with dual cores and I can not begin to tell you how heavenly it is that when I sit down to do something, EVERYTHING WORKS! I am not used to that!!! The printer works on command, the computer does not freeze, the pages do not roll, Photoshop behaves! Oh, I feel like a Queen in command of her realm! Thank you Debie our leader at Shabby Cottage Shops, for guiding me to what I needed and thank you to my hubby who tries to always see that my needs and my wants are pretty much covered! How did I get so lucky!

This being Pink Saturday, you better get yourself a cup of tea or coffee, or like me, a Dr. Pepper and pop on over to Beverly's where you find great gals sharing their beautiful pinks today and have a little downtime enjoying all the pinks.

This is about half of an order of cupcakes and cookies that I, Whew! finished and shippped. All their sweet pinkness was pretty on the table. I always feel so relieved when a project is finished and on its way! :)

A pretty and practical canvas bag with handpainted roses on each side....see more of this one and others at THE RUFFLED ROSE

Paris inspired cream stockings with handmade muslin roses and a touch of bling....

I am off to go visiting. It will be fun to see what you all been up to since I last posted!
Happy Pink Saturday and have a great weekend and Happy Thanksgiving! I know I can hardly wait for our dinner and then snacking on the left overs with turkey and cranberry sandwiches! Yummmmmy!
