~HAPPY PINK SATURDAY...Get Your Mammogram Today~

~MY MISS "K" AT 3~

Happy Pink Saturday my Pink Lovin' Peeps!  I hope today finds you happy and well and thinking about what a good (and smart!) girl you are for scheduling that MAMMOGRAM this month!

Thank you Miss Beverly over at HOW SWEET THE SOUND for hosting our PINK SATURDAY get together each and every week!  I hope you'll pop on over to her place and say a big hello!  We all just LOVE HER!  Check out our newest PINKIES while you're at it!

Now...see my sweet little Miss K at the top?  The picture above was taken when she was 3 years old.  She was such a quiet little thing then...  My how some things change! :)  One of my most favorite pictures of her ever.  She's a hoot!
(fabulous onionskin envelopes!)

Back in 1977 I was a young and poor college student in love with a bearded guy named Steven.
(remember when we use to do that?)

Didn't know it then but I was going to marry that
guy one day!  
(nope! not anymore!)

I'm thinkin' I've loved PINK for a really, really long time...
(oh my gosh...and Steven, too!)

Not long after I married my Mr. AGPMan I started collecting vintage sewing patterns.  I made my sweet girl the outfit on the left.  Ten-cents was a pretty common price to pay for used patterns at the local thrift back when she was tiny...

It isn't often but once in a while I come across a vintage handmade dress or slip that has my name on it!  This lovely old frock was old but new when I purchased it at a tag sale!!!  It is white eyelet with pink thread (can't see the pink...sorry!)
I think I paid $3 for it!  Whoot! Whoot!

My last PINK OFFERING for you this week is a little snapshot of the very first teacup I purchased for my home back in 1978.  I paid only a few dollars for it in Ft. Smith, AK.  Years later I purchased three more on eBay exactly like it...

Now...I have a little news for you...

After a crazy-busy month of September my guy and I have decided to take some time off for some R & R.  The Holidays will be here before we know it and that is always my busiest time.  Also~I haven't been feeling very well and need to get a handle on what's going on with my health...  So~I won't be online for about a week or so except for my Sunday Post (which I did earlier this week!)  See...sometimes I do plan ahead! 

Anyway...I'll be back soon and catch up with you all then.  When I return I'll be sharing with you a sweet new giveaway that's sure to tickle you PINK!

Blessings to you as you enjoy this first week of October.

Love to you~

Happy Pink Saturday to you Rebecca,

Here I am admiring your ~PINKS~ in the wee hours of the morning. Everything is wonderful, but Little Miss "K" always steals the show.

Your faithfull followers will be missing you, although I know you need some much deserved REST. Somehow the word REST has never been in your just keep on going.

My globe is showing that you have a pampered day at the spa, no stress, no worries, just a day filled with happy thoughts.

Until then..
Carol from "Good 'Ol Texas"

Do take it calm and easy, look after yourself.
Does Miss K take after you?
I enjoyed your last posts, so we will be looking forward to when you return on here: fit and healthy.
Have a happy time!

Connie said...

Funny, I'm taking a break also starting tomorrow, sweetpea. Hubs and I are battling some "body" issues at the moment. Prayers are always appreciated. Read tomorrow's blog for an explanation.

Miss K is always cute. So is our Miss Caroline who is growing like a weed every week! Love that little chick. Great grands are much more more, trust me on this, sugar!!!!


Patti said...

I will certainly miss you while you're offline, but I hope your time away is refreshing and restorative. I'm praying for you right now.

All your pinks today are so lovely...especially that little 3 year old sweetie.

What a perfect pink post! I am dying over those quilts in the background! Love the tea cups too! I still have a few letters my best friend and I would write back and forth to each other. I remember our hands would hurt and it would sometimes take a day or two to write one letter! And then by that time something else might have happened so you would have to add that too. There were alot of p.s. and p.s.s.... etc. I still today send out hand written thank you notes for dinner parties or some other event we are invited to attend. It just makes it more personal. Ok..I'll stop rambling! Enjoy your R&R!

Unknown said...

Happy P.S. my friend. Hope your day is grand.

Well, your pink blog is lovely and I enjoyed it but what really jumps out at me is that YOU are not feeling well! I am praying that it is nothing serious! MyHero and I are taking off on Wednesday and will be gone 10 days also. I know that I need some time to refresh and renew myself too.

Love to you, dear Rebecca...and PLEASE keep me posted about your health situation! xxoo Diana

hope you have a good rest and recharge yourself. It is just so good to get away from it all sometimes!
Thinking of you and hope all is well

Char said...

Rebecca, my first instinct is to worry, but hopefully what is bothering you is something very small and can be easily fixed. Be safe and most of all, be well. Take your time to heal and get back to us asap. We all need to reload and fill back up after giving so much.
Miss K is a doll and as sweet as can be.
Happy Pink Saturday, Char

I think that little girl's pattern is the sweetest thing ever.

Another lovely blog, my sweet friend. Hugs-Diana
