Pink Saturday!! January 9, 2010

Brrr!! Baby, it's cold outside!! Hello, sweet friends, and welcome to Pink Saturday! We are having record low temps here in Texas. I think it is cold all over our great country from what the weatherman is saying. So, please stay cozy and snug as Old Man Winter has arrived. For Pink Saturday in January, I am going to do a review of previous Pink Saturday posts. I have been blogging for about 6 months and have always participated in Pink Saturday. Even before I started my blog, I always enjoyed visiting Pink Saturday. I am very much a pink girl and lover of roses. I hope you don't mind this review but enjoy looking at some of my favorite pinks from around my home. I have some new pinks to show you beginning in February. Our Pink Saturday is faithfully hosted by Ms. Beverly of "How sweet the sound" so please go and visit Beverly and all the other wonderful pinks by going here:
I have stayed in my warm pajamas all day today (retirement is really great!) and have watched about all the bowl games on tv these past few days. I love sports and watch football, basketball, baseball and sometimes hockey. Besides the news and news programs this is pretty much the extent of my tv viewing. I hope you have been able to relax and enjoy your week. Thank you so much for stopping by for a visit. It always brightens my day when you do!
Thought for today: It's in God's light that we always shine the brightest!

Hi Sweet Vicki and Happy Pink Saturday! Pjs all day, I love it when I can do that!! What a simple pleasure especially during the cold months. I think you have a great idea with the recap of past pictures, it brings back lots and lots of wonderful memories. I love all the roses in your pretty garden, just perfect, of course I also recognize a lovely pillow...ha ha. Be safe my friend and have a great week, Char

Hi, Vicki... I'm dropping by tonight because I won't be on the Pink Saturday train tomorrow. I have to take a break and get my house back together! ;-)

Love all of your pretty pinkness today...

Hi Vicki,
I love all your gorgeous pinks and I have a favorite. It's the piece with the beautiful crochet at the top. That's just so dainty and delicate. Happy Pinks..have a wonderful weekend.

Oh my Vicki,
Loooove the vintage image at the top of the post. Would give my last piece of chocolate for it! Have a great weekend.

Connie said...

Ooooh, I love that garden, honey! Just gorgeous.

Pam said...

Love your pink items. Lots of variety. I especially love the crochet items. My grandmother crocheted the most lovely things. I am lucky to have a few of them but no pink.
I agree that retirement is wonderful and one of the perks is staying in p.j.s as lone as you want.

Happy Pink Saturday

Vicki, so nice to see your so beautiful garden again!!!... soon you will be having your roses blooming again!!! I have heard in the news that U.S. is having one of the most cold winters ever!!! But you, my friend, can stay in your pijamas all day and enjoy your beautiful treasures with roses all day long, what a pleasure!!! Continue enjoying cold days as you are doing...
Muchos cariños,
Maria Cecilia

Pajama days really are the best. I will be doing that for most of today but a lot of cleaning and rearranging will be involved too. Your posts are always so lovely and uplifting! Wishing you a warm and wonderful day. Blessings, Tammy

Aw, thanks! I needed all those visions of roses to fill my cold mind! ♥

C'est Moi, Julie Marie said...

Hello Vicki.... I love seeing all your pinks again... especially your gardens... I have a sever case of Spring fever! I can't wait for our roses to bloom once again... love to you... xoxo Julie Marie

Maria said...

Good Morning Vicki!
I don't mind looking at those sweetly sewn chair caps and the beautiful bride pillow again!
I love the rewards of my job...but oh am I dreaming of your days at home all cozy... It's been a challenge leaving the house this past week. Yesterday, I thought the schools would have had a delay... but at 7:00am I was on snowy roads.
A benefit is that daylight savings time brings the sunrise just as I'm driving up the road near that creates a heavenly moment right there in my car~
Have a Warm & Cozy weekend!

Beansieleigh said...

Hi Vicki! LOVE that tea cozy with the crochet, buttons and roses on it!! VERY SWEET!!.. Wow, I STILL can't BELIEVE how COLD it is for everyone down south!! I have family in Florida, and I can't imagine they're liking THESE temperatures too much!.. Stay in and stay warm. I know I'll be tucked under an afghan watching either some movies; OR, with great restraint, I may be watching for what's new on the shopping channels! (0; Uh-oh!.. Happy Pink Saturday, and have a wonderful weekend! ~tina

Marsha (Sassy Mini Dolls) said...

Oh, my, what beautiful PINKS! The one tea cup posted right after the last picture of your garden is to die for! Just absolutely gorgeous!

It's been unusually COLD everywhere. Stay warm!

Have a wonderful Pink Saturday!!

Oh I love being retired too ;-)
I heard parts of Texas are colder than the North Pole currently and just thinking about that makes me shiver! I loved all you pinks today ... such a marvelous variety. The poster at the top and the lovely crochet work stand out in my mind as I type this. Do stay warm. Happy Pink Saturday.
Hugs and blessings,

Gasp! All of it so beautiful, but I am in love with the pink cup and saucer with the roses. That is just gorgeous, Vicki!

Happy Pink Saturday, my friend!

Vicki I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE your pinks. And I never tire of seeing the beautiful roses. Thanks for sharing them again. Stay bundled. We are expecting 28 degrees tonight in Florida!!! Yikes, I am not used to all this freezing cold weather.

What a January we are having in Texas. Bowl games...sadly no RoseBowl win for Texas, but sounds like your stayin warm and cozy in your PJs and reviewing the warmer days of your beautiful rose garden. You can show that chair cap's always been a favorite of mine. Happy Pink Saturday...Sue

Another lovely post Vicki :) Seeing your garden makes me feel so happy! I am so longing for spring right now! I cant wait to see your new *pinks*

June said...

Vicki what a gorgeous review of all the beautiful pinks you've shown us over the last few months . It was a treat to see these. Is that a Christie Repasey print above the china hutch? I love her artwork.
I found it so funny that you are a sports watcher. A pink loving sports watcher too.

What breathtaking PINKS! Thank you so much for sharing some of the wonderful PINKS in your beautiful home! So lovely to visit you today! Hugs, Coralie

♥Mimi♥ said...

I'm a day late and a dollar short with my Pink Saturday visits. The sun was shining too bright yesterday and just like a little kid I couldn't stop marveling at how lovely it was as it beamed through my lace curtains and puddled on the floor. My cats were in heaven.

So, here I am today, a little late but thinking that I got a bonus because I avoided all the traffic!

Lovely blog and the sweetest pinks that you shared. Thank you so much for making this such a lovely Sunday for me.

All so very beautiful
