Happy Pink Saturday!!! November 21, 2009












Hello, sweet friends, and welcome to another fun Pink Saturday so graciously hosted each week by our own Ms. Beverly from "How Sweet the Sound". In my first three pictures, you see a powder box that belonged to my sweet mother. I love the pale pink color of it and the romantic raised image on it. I have it sitting on my vanity. The next four images are some of my favorite hand painted rose pieces that I purchased from e-bay: a pink heart and two cupcakes. I think they are painted so softly and so sweetly. The next three pictures are of my new chair cozies made by my friend, Jil, from "Say it with Roses". I posted about these just two posts ago so if you want to go back two posts you can see how they look on my dining room chairs. I am in love with them!! Next, you see not a Thanksgiving turkey but my pink hen. I fell in love with her the minute I saw her. I especially love that bling on her!! I always like to close with a vintage image. As our hearts turn to Thanksgiving, we realize how much we have to be thankful for! I hope you and your family have a blessed Thanksgiving season as you enjoy spending time together, eating, watching football, playing games and fellowshipping together.

Oh Vickie..
Happy Pink Saturday. I love the powder box. I can see why your Moma cherished it so much. It was kept so beautiful, so that it might be passed on to you, who in turn will pass it on to yours. How wonderful of a pink cherished family heirloom.

Loved the cupcakes. They are just precious as they can be, and what an addition to your room.

I love the chair cozies. They are so pretty, and take a plain chair and make it elegant. Ofcourse I can sure see my grand babies hands all over them as well. What didn't get dirty, the grandsons would pick and pull off. But I sure do love them.

Thanks for sharing your beauties. What a beautiful pink post. Please stop by and say hi. I love the company. Country hugs...Sherry

Vicki, I was looking at the chair cozies, and thought, that sure looks like Jil's work, how did she do the same thing, and then it WAS Jil's work. :0) She does such a wonderful finish. Love them, of course.

Happy Pink Saturday!

HAPPY PINK SATURDAY, Vicki,
As always your post is a feast for the eyes! Such darling little cupcake ornies and so pretty in so many places besides the Christmas tree.
Everything is so pretty...they little pink hen is a sweetie!
The box that belonged to your Mother is an elegant treasure...I have seen a few done in that style, thru the years of antiquing, but none as beautiful as this one. What dear memories they must evoke!
Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Pinks and have a most wonderful Thanksgiving..

Oh Vicki what a powder box! Made more special because it was your mom's. It's things like this that add such beauty to our everydays. I would smile everytime I looked at it.
All your pinks are beautiful! And those chair covers are crazy beautiful!!! But then I already told you that.
Hugs to you dear friend,
