~HAPPY PINK SATURDAY - Celebrating You With A GIVEAWAY~

 ~MY MISS K and I~
(Baking Cookies in 2005 - Age 3)

Dear Pinkettes!

HAPPY PINK SATURDAY TO YOU!
  ~MISS K PAINTING CHRISTMAS ORNAMENTS~
(A Precious Memory For Me)

Thank you Miss Beverly from HOW SWEET THE SOUND for hosting our PINK GATHERING week after week!  Please stop by and visit with as many of the Pink Lovin' Peeps who work so hard to give you a weekly dose of Sweet Pink Inspiration Saturday after Saturday.  This week I hope you'll visit our special friend, Marilou from LuLu's Lovlies!  She always has the best PINKS and this week she's celebrating her 100th Post with an awesome giveaway!
 
 ~MISS K and PINK PAINT EVERYWHERE~
 (Totally Priceless)

The three little pictures above steal my heart away.  Very few of you know the back story of my Miss K and until she is older and chooses to share it for herself, that is how it will remain.  What I will tell you is that the photos you see were all taken on a frosty November day as I worked feverishly at squeezing in as many 'experiences' as possible into a six hour time-frame.  Now...here I am almost exactly 5 years later and find I'm not only thankful for answered prayers but for restoration of the years the locusts devoured.
~AN EARLY RACHEL QUILT~

Next comes a  pretty pink rose quilt that was originally sold at MERVYN'S (geez...I miss that store!).  It was an EARLY Rachel Ashwell print and I still love it as much today as I did when I bought it several years ago!
~PARIS PINK FILE FOLDERS~

I don't recall where I first found these charming Paris Pink File Folders but boy do I love them!  YUMMO!
~VINTAGE CHRISTMAS GIRL POSTCARD~

Isn't this little Pinky sweet?  I recently purchased this old Post Card on eBay and I'm over the moon crazy about the image!  Too Sweet!
~HAND PAINTED PINK ROSE BOX~

This charming old box was once rusty and worn!  It was sold to one of my long-time buyers last week and I was sooo sooooooooo sad to see her go!  Some things you just hate to part with!  "So long sweet old Tackle Box!  Hope Miss Sweet Tea loves you as much as me!"
 ~VINTAGE PINK BEAUTY~

This darling old print came in a wedding guest book I bought in the early 90's at T.J.Maxx.  I loved it so much I tore it out of the book and put it in a little frame!  She hangs in my office!
~LOVELY PINK LADY~

I love old graphics and the one you see above has always been one of my favorites!  There's just something about her face and pink rose hat that pulls me in...
~VINTAGE MILLINERY PINK ROSE HATS~

I have a weakness for vintage hats.  If they have pink roses on them...well...I'm a BIG-TIME-GONNER!

Now...are you ready to see my 2nd Giveaway for the month?  This one is for my FOLLOWERS!
~A SWEET GIVEAWAY FOR MY FOLLOWERS~
(Yep...Another GIVEAWAY)

If you've made it through all my pinks for this week then you probably just looked at one above!  Now scroll on down to see the one below!!!
~PINK SNOWMAN GLITTERY CARD INCLUDED

She'sSewPretty said...

Stopping by to wish you a happy pink day and a wonderful Thanksgiving. The picture of Miss K painting her Christmas ornament just touches my heart. So sweet!

Thmini2 said...

What a sweet post! She is so lucky to have you for a grandma!

Carol said...

What a sweet Pink Saturday Post. I so love the pic of Miss "K" & her pink paint mess. Through the innocent eyes of a child she is looking off, abit angelic & yet mischeveous letting you know she enjoys her "Grandma Time".

Sweet Tea's tackle box is so beautiful..I know she will treasure this. Remember the lunch pail & tackle box you did last minute about 3 years ago? My late sister in law was so excited to unwrap the duo at Christmas. I think she was the only Pink Peepette fishing in Canadian waters with such elegance. They remain displayed on an amoire which brings special memories to my brother. Will he part with them?? NO !!

Adorable snowman pillow and cards. The lucky person to win this will be getting a Labour of your Love. You are OVERLY generous and a Blessing to your long time followers.

Blessings

Good 'Ol Texas

Rebecca, I so love the RA quilt and the sweet graphics you always share. Boy, do our tastes run the same, or what?!? But nothing NOTHING compares to the precious pics of you and Miss K! We, too, had some rocky years after Bree's divorce with our little Miss A so I feel I know some of what you must be referring to. May God bless your sweet family always!

I'm a follower and I'd love LOVE to be included for a chance to win the sweet lil Snowman pillow, card, and teabag! You do know that I collect snowmen?!?!

Happy PINK Saturday!

Big TX Hugs,

Oooohh! More than ONE chance to win this gorgeous snowman pillow! You know I am a "regular" on your Blog, and please enter my name for the second chance at it..I would be thrilled to win something made by your loving hands!
I enjoyed all of your PINK SATURDAY BLOG, but the photos of you and Miss K. were the best! The very first time I ever saw a picture of you, my friend,was of you and Miss K., a small child in a feeding chair. You shared some of her story with me, and my heart has swelled with glory to watch this precious child grow into the beautiful, adorable, darling little girl she is today. God blessed you both...I know how much you love her, and her you....
When you gather around the table on Thanksgiving Day you know just how much the Lord has blessed you....may you have a wonderful day!
Gobbles of hugs...Love, Francy
