Happy Pink Saturday

Hi Everyone!
Be sure and visit Beverly our gracious host for this fun get together, to find lots and lots of scrumptious blogs to visit featuring PINK!
Thank you Beverly!

When I planted this Bleeding Heart I had no idea it would get so big and beautiful!
Below, are some of the dainty little blossoms up close.....aren't they just exquisite?
While I call Arizona my home, I have decided I need two homes because the Spring here is just perfect and the Summers aren't that bad. There is humidity, but it does not get to 115 degrees and higher that Arizona can see!!! We will spend the Spring and Summer here, in Michigan and then in October get the house and yard ready for Winter and then head for Arizona, where there are perfect temperatures 'til the end of March and then back to here. Now to find a way to afford that dream!! lol!

A pretty bright pink tulip that the squirrels left for me to enjoy. On the back step, this morning, the little devils had bitten off a bloom and left it on a step! Uggg!

Next week the Lily Of The Valley, below, will have their sweet fragrant blossoms open and the pink, about to pop open, buds of our Crab Apple tree, above, will, too, and I will show you how beautiful they are in all of their glory!

And, of course my darling Violets which just want to grow everywhere! How I love them and have little vases of them scattered about the house. I have had to ruthlessly thin them out, but I can never call them a weed. I LOVE my Violets! They and the Lily Of The Valley are some of the delights of living here.

Below are items I created this week and listed on eBay

A sweet as can be individual dessert server complete with a pretty faux cupcake and below, a plump and pretty pin cushion......


One of my "Spindle Ladies", above......I love these little charmers and this one is much smaller than most that I make. They look so sweet on an end table or a shelf.....

Another gorgeous Tussie Mussie full of fragrant lavender and handmade ribbon roses.

Thank you for stopping by and I wish all the Moms a wonderful and happy MOTHERS DAY!
