Christmas Pink Saturday

Hello All and Merry, Merry Christmas!

Isn't this just the sweetest and merriest? I am the happy and surprised winner of this sweet set from Cindy at I have already enjoyed a cut of my sugar free hot chocolate and a cup of Cherry Vanilla Honey tea! Thank You! Thank You! Cindy! It sat right by me while I sewed, something I haven't been able to do for a couple of weeks with all the busy of Christmas!
Be sure and visit our dear friend Beverly who is the hostess for this fun Saturday will find all the other pretty Christmas blogs to enjoy for this week. ♥
I still can't grasp just how swiftly this year passed. It wasn't the best of years, but it wasn't the worst and we seem to have somehow survived. Now we are looking forward to our Christmas dinner together and already planning for 2012!
Many Warm And Wonderful Blessings to Each Of You!

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....

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
♥ To All Of You Dear To My Heart Friends
