Pink Saturday With A Little Snow

Hello All and Welcome! This is our day to immerse ourselves in PINK and have a little get away from the daily grind....sit back and relax and have fun as you roam through all the pinkalicious blogs found over at Beverly's

Yes, it snowed. Not much, but enough to make everything white and COLD! Brrrr! winter is here.

It has been a quiet week just working on things like spraying a green Christmas tree white. I found one, but it was quite expensive and more than the budget would allow, my ingenious husband said he would be happy to spray paint the one we have. At first I wasn't sure....after all I really wanted that pretty one in the store. Sometimes we just have to do with what we have and so, I took him up on it. When you spray them, I have learned several spray cans later, it will never look as white as the white trees for sale, but it is pretty with its dark shadows. It is still in the garage as I am letting it "air" before bringing it in to get rid of that awful paint smell! When I have it up and decorated I will post it for you to critique. ♥

Aren't these just the prettiest quilted ornaments? I found these on eBay at an old friends and a friend to many of you, too. Kathy Flav. I immediately thought how pretty for our Pink Saturday ..... so shabby and sweet and romantic country,too. She has many pretty things listed, so why don't you take a minute to run over and look...

And, here is what I have been up to ...

This is listed at my < Website > where we have lots of pretties and lots of pretties marked down...hope you will come browse.

It is December now! Isn't it hard to believe! Have fun with your shopping and decorating and party going and 'til next time

Hi Jil :) We too got some snow last night on our side of the state....enough to cover the ground but not on the roads, though there were some icy spots...suppose to get more Sunday's inevitable :( I'm looking forward to seeing how your tree looks painted white...I'm thinking next year of doing that to ours...though truthfully, I do want to get a new tree as we've had this one for over 10 + years, and it is starting to show it's age, lol :)

Wishing you a wonderful weekend my friend!!

Warmest hugs, Brenda

What an adorable cottage. I am so glad you took a picture featuring the little bird on the chimney because I missed seeing him in the whole view. How enchanting! I look forward to seeing how your painted tree turned out!

Hi Jil, Such a darling cottage. Love the soft colors and the SNOW! Sometimes it is difficult being on a retirement budget when there are so many talented people in blogland creating such beautiful items. Your shop is filled with such items. Thank you for stopping to visit and saying hello to my snow people! Blessings.
