Pink Saturday

It's Pink Saturday again and Christmas is drawing nearer....Be sure to visit Beverly's to see all the lovely pinks and pretty Christmas decorations, too!

We woke up to snow this morning and while it won't last, it is pretty as it sits on all the branches and the roofs. The cardinals were by to try out their freshly filled feeder and of course a squirrel had to try, too. He couldn't figure it out and so went on his! He wasn't hungry enough to try to figure this anti-squirrel feeder out. As we get deeper into winter and they get hungrier, they finally are hanging by toes to get a few seeds.

I did minimal decorating this year, just enough to say Christmas.

The balls with the roses go back more than twenty years. They were my mothers and I remember when she found them at the grocery store, of all places. Little then, did I know how much roses and pink would become a part of my life!

With my mug of sugar free hot chocolate, I am going to go strolling through all of this Saturday's pinkness..
Warm Thoughts....

Hi Jil,
What a pretty home you have! I love those soft pink balls and your tree is beautiful.
I'm not decorating like other years either as my youngest son won't be home for Christmas this year. He's going out to BC to have Christmas with his brother and family. I'm happy they will all be together but it's going to be different for us this year.
Wishing you a lovely pink weekend and...

Christmas blessings,

Your Christmas decorations are lovely and I love the ornaments on the tree. I always wish for a white Christmas but we rarely have anything other than a dusting, and usually after the first of the year. Lucky you to already have snow. I love your home, it looks beautiful! Happy Pink Saturday.

I found you through Pink Saturday!

And I have to say, I, really love those rose Christmas baubles! I wonder if I could transform some of my tattered old ones to pretty new ones with roses on?
