Happy Pink to much to do Saturday

We love the holidays so much, I think we should make it longer.  I mean why try to squeeze all of your parties, shopping and decorating into one short month?  I'm sure we would all find ways to fill up whatever amount of extra time we were given.  But of course there in lies the self made dilemma.

The purpose of the holidays is not to see how crazy we can make ourselves.  I've decided I am going to do less stressing and more enjoying!  To that point I am going to take the time to browse Miss Beverly's Pink Saturday Link.  I am amazed at all of the creativity.  It certainly has inspired me to try different vignettes.  You will be inspired as well.  Your link is:

While I was blog hopping last week, I came across a new to me blog.  Miss Deidrea has a lot of eye candy to see.  Wait until you see her range and what she did to a microwave.  She wanted her appliances to fit in with her newly created kitchen.  She even offers tutorials   If you'd like to visit her this is her link.  (love the blog name):

Well I'm off to see you.

I hope you will join us at Miss Beverly's

I hope you check out Miss Deidrea

And of course I hope you enjoy My  Pink Pretties

I really enjoy reading your comments. Thank you for stopping by.

Until next time

Hope and Hugs to You and Yours

I'm dreaming of a pink Christmas

Happy decorating time.  I so enjoy this time of year.  I think it is one of the times you can go as far over the top as you care to.  Of course anything from the smallest angel to the largest tree is beautiful.  It does help if you are a person who looks through rose colored glasses! 

I'm joining Miss Beverly's Pink Saturday.  Please join us!  You will find many inspiring pictures and thoughts.  Here is your link:


I'm keeping my thoughts brief today in order to give me more time visiting with my fellow Pinkies.  I am just giddy, as this is my first Christmas being in the pink link.  I can hardly wait to visit you all.

I hope you will join us

I hope you share your Pinks with us.

And of course, I hope you enjoy my PINK PRETTIES.

Until next time

Happy Pink Saturday and Happy Thanksgiving

I'm lucky to say my husband and I have been invited for Thanksgiving dinner this year.  That gives me the ability to start decorating for Christmas.  I have the tendency to over do, but I love it so much, I just can't help myself.  I know many of you feel the same way.  There is no other time of year that brings so many of us pure joy. 

I was unable to do as much as I like the last several years because of my back.  I pared back out of necessity, but found I actually liked it.  I have been going through my stuff to decide what I wanted to do with it.  A daunting task, but very satisfying.  I use to take every thing non Christmas down, to make way for holiday decorations.  Now I'm not doing much of traditional Christmas colors.  This leaves me plenty of space for my PINK.  Oh, I also happen to love white and pastels!  There will be plenty of soft romantic eye candy.

I did take the time to list a few of my glitter houses and decorated trees on Ebay.  I also pulled my holiday decorations and started  decorating.  I 'm happy to be on my way.

I'm linking up with Miss Beverly's Pink Saturday, you'll find pink inspiration of all kinds  You may access her at:

Last week I found a great new blogger, Miss June,  at Miss Beverly's.  Desizna world offers clipart, collages and great ideas.  They generously offer FREE clipart as well.  You may find this blog at:


I just came from a great blog that was part of Pink Saturday.  She had a little note to remember our local food banks.  I am so happy to be a part of such caring women.
I do hope you will visit Miss Beverly.

I hope you will visit Miss June also.

I hope your blessings are many, and your Thanksgiving a joy.

And of course I hope you enjoy,   My Pink Pretties.

Have a joyous week

I'm so happy to be back.

Hi to all and Happy Pink Saturday.

I have had a very busy fall.  In the month of September, we were gone 3/4's of the month.  Needless to say our yard work and house work continued on with what seemed like great vigor.  I did have a little time to create some putzes.  I found some little ceramic house that I painted in the putz style.  I love the vintage pieces with their haphazard appearance.  I tried to make the ceramic pieces similar so I could use them with my vintage pieces.  I also hand dyed and decorated little trees to go with them.  I like them so much I decided to do a few and place them on eBay.  I hope to get them out there this weekend.

If you haven't visited Miss Beverly and her Pink Saturday posts here is the link


I hope you visit her blog.

I hope you enjoy my interpretation of glitter houses.

And of course I hope you enjoy MY PINK PRETTIES.

If you have the time I enjoy reading your comments.

Now I'm off to see what all of you have been upto!

Hope & Hugs to you and yours

Happy Pink Saturday

Finally it is a little cooler.  I believe the swelling of my brain is actually getting better.  If you have ever had that awful feeling, you know how miserable it is!  I may actually be able to get somethings done.

I am sharing my post with Beverly at:

She brings all like minded pinkies together.  If you have not seen her site,  please stop by.  Pink Saturday is a fun way to look through rose colored glasses.  I always feel cheerier.

I hope this finds you cheery and well.
I hope you join us.

And of course I hope you enjoy My Pink Pretties

A special Pink Saturday for a special boy named Charlie

I find it so interesting that often times the most fragile of life, is the strongest and most special.

We don't always know why things happen the way they do.  But in it all we know we are not alone.
For hope rises within, when the Angel Kisses fall gently from the sky,  resting in the sweet soft petals of a flower, or on the wings of  a butterfly's maiden voyage.

Of course only special children like Charlie can see these kisses.  But these sweet children are always ready to share them

The next time you hold one of these special children------hold them very tightly-----close your eyes
and feel the tender fleeting blush on your cheek.

                                                       The HOPE,   from an Angel's Kiss

At the you will see a video of Charlie and his family's Miracle Makeover.  It is an uplifting view of how we all can help one another.   

I'm asking all who visit this site to visit Kelee at: ,

 If you would like to participate in this, please send out the word through your companies, churches organizations,  friends, Face Book whatever you use.  As we have friends who have lost a child with cancer, I feel very connected to this  group.  Please do what you can do, I know your time is valuable and you  may not be able to spend as much time as you would like.  But  please rest assured as the Fly said peeing in the river during the drought, every little bit  counts.

Happy Pink Cooler Saturday

Whew,  We finally have a little relief from this dreadful heat.  I'm one of those that doesn't function well when I'm hot.  I do have a little energy, so I dug out some treasures I picked up here & there.  To my surprise they were all pink and blue.  I ran around the house pulling some more pink and blue items to make a little vignette.  I had a good time.

I'm  sure it will be cool and pink at:

I hope you all stop by.  I also hope it is comfortable where you are.

And of course I hope you enjoy My Pink Pretties

Happy Hot Pink Saturday

Will someone please explain why I continue to garden, only to watch everything droop or get eaten.  I love the green movement and try at best to respect Mother Nature.  But I have to say these creepy ravenous earwigs are about to receive my wrath!!  And it is just to darn hot.  OK I feel better getting that off of my  chest.  Mother Nature fear not, I will continue to try to kill them responsibly.

In light of my crabbies I figured out I needed some happy pink.  Sure enough, I started working on changing my kitchen curio.  As I found some different pinks to rearrange,  my mood actually lifted.  It's true what they say,  pink really is a state of mind, not just a color.

Well it is still hotter than you know where, so I think I will stay here in the pink coolness of my home.

The only traveling I will be doing will be at Miss Beverly's Happy Pink Saturday Link.  You can join in the fun too.

I hope you will join us, and I hope you will be cool.

And of course I hope you enjoy My Pink Pretties.
