Happy PINK SATURDAY!'s been a long time since I took part in this fun linky-party!  Thank you Miss Beverly of How Sweet The Sound for being such a wonderful host to all of us pink-loving-gals!  You bless us all!
Now...If you popped in yesterday you saw my little Vintage Apron Post showcasing several old sewing patterns.  Today I want to give you just a sneak peak of what I've been working on...  I've been having way too much fun coming up with new designs for Mother's Day using vintage apron graphics!  I'm happy today to unveil three of our latest original altered art Greeting Cards from my A Gathering Place Shoppe!  I hope to have them uploaded early this next week!!!

Hope you have an awesome PINK LOVIN' DAY today!  I'll be off helping my husby work in our yard and planting my favorite PINK FLOWERS!

Blessings to you~

Hi, Rebecca....just have to tell you how much I enjoyed the blog yesterday about the vintage aprons...I have some my grandmother made, so that is REALLY
a long time ago!!
Then this morning when I saw the note cards you are soon to put on your site that feature various designs of the aprons, I was really
thrilled to think they can be purchased!! Count me in on some!!
I love what you do with the images from long ago and the note cards are always so special to send to friends....they love them, too!!
Have a happy weekend!! I am off to
"dig in the dirt"~~~~~
Big hugs, Francy

You know I loved your Vintage Apron Post yesterday. It was filled with ~Nostalgia~. I still remember my mother using her apron to wipe the tears when my brother & I fell down from having those horrid "clamp-on-the-shoe" rollerskates.

Now the Mother Day Cards..OMG..I just marvel at all your fresh, creative ideas. You are one multi-talented woman. Enjoyed our Friday chat :)

Hi Dear Sweet Rebecca,
I LOVE your Mother's Day cards--they are perfection!!!
The first card I ever made my mom for Mother's Day had an apron on it...I made it at church...seeing yours brings back memories of a little girl who loved to create even way back then...

Wishing you a wonderful weekend!



Your cards are awesome! You are ahead of the game! I'm still working on my Easter cards!

Julie Marie said...

Oooh Rebecca, those are sooo beautiful!... Since my mama is gone (I miss her so!)... will you be creating any that say "sister"... I would love to order one for my little sis for Mothers Day... xoxo Julie Marie

Rebecca Nelson said...

Sister Cards, Auntie Cards and FRIENDS Mother's Day Cards are all in the works. Hope to have them up this week. Only a few images I found are working...but changing the sentiment is EASY!

You bless me girly. Still not sure I don't want to drive the extra 5 hours to meet for lunch. Wouldn't that be wonderful? I'll keep you posted. OK? This may be my only chance...and we will be SOOOOO CLOSE!

Love you girly~

Hi Rebecca, I am constantly amazed at what you have accomplished with a computer and a printer. I still am struggling with printing tags.
These are just so sweet and perfect for Mother's Day. I know they will be big sellers for your shop.
Happy Pink Saturday to you and yours girlfriend, Char

Ginger said...

Rebecca those cards are to die for and I definitely want one for my sweet mama on Mothers Day. Please save one for me!!!
If you are gardening I hope you are wearing your coat. Up here they say it will be 32 tonight!!!

Rebecca Nelson said...

Ginger~Nope...plans for working in the yard were dashed due to the weather. We are hanging chandys instead and then I'm going to the BALLET with my girl. I'm so excited!


Ann said...

Oh these are so beautiful. Who would of thought of aprons for a card, they are just perfect. Thanks for coming by today, love to hear from you.

Unknown said...

Hi Rebecca
As someone that has always worn an apron (just call me June Cleaver) I just adore these cards. I have several styles of aprons which are all full, by the way, and my favourite is one with lace on it.

Hi Rebecca, what a lovely blog. That Mothers Day card looks beautiful. Thanks for visiting so I could discover you and your shop.

Dolores said...

I lost you!!!! When I accidentally deleted my list of people I follow..... I thought I'd gotten everyone back on my list. I thought today, you sure haven't posted in a long time... then I looked.... and I'd lost you. Sure glad I found you and have you back again.

I love the apron patterns... reminds me of my childhood.

Simply Debbie said...

These are so precious...I love them. I also read your post with the apron so reminded me of my little grandma that was never without an apron. There is something about an apron that produces the thoughts of security.
Thanks for stopping by to see always brightens my day
Have fun at the ballet...I love to go to the ballet.
Lots of hugs
Have A Sugar Sweet Day

My Cottage Charm said...

Hi Rebecca :)
Thanks so much for your sweet comment on my cards I made, it was much appreciated!
Your little aprons are so precious...I like things like that. (and the fact that they're pink, is icing on the cake!) :)
Have a great weekend

Sue @ Not the Good Scissors! said...

These are so CUTE!

Have a blessed weekend.
xoxo, Sue

P.S. Have fun at the Ballet. I have't been to the Ballet in quite awhile.

NanaDiana said...

Rebecca- I love ALL your cards but I think these are absolutely fabulous! I LOVE LOVE LOVE them. I think part of it is just the fact that they remind me of a softer, gentler time in our lives. Wonderful prints- You are SOOO SOOO talented..your art work is as beautiful as you are- Love to you my sweet friend, xxoo Diana

Toy said...

Rebecca, the apron card is beyond precious! What a wonderful idea you had you girlie girl.

I want to add one more thing . . . you spoke the other day about not knowing your life purpose. May I say for me, you give me more inspiration than you will ever know. I'm sure everyone feels that way, too. I think you have a ministry of beauty, love and sweetness.

I have searched forever for a kindred spirit in how they dress their home and present themselves to the world. You are truly a role model and a wonderful person inside and out.

Please don't let yourself burn out. Rest when you feel God's touch saying, "Slow down little girl and refresh".

Much care,


NanE said...

Oh my goodness Rebecca, I love those cards! I don't know which one I like the best. I just looked at your vintage apron patterns and they are so neat. Do you know that is the very first thing I made on a sewing machine? A sweet little apron in Home Ec. Have a great week! Nan

Theresa said...

SWEET cards and BEAUTIFUL as always:) Love them dear Rebecca! Enjoy your weekend, HUGS!

Unknown said...

Happy Pink Saturday!

Hi Rebecca~
These cards are so wonderful!! I enjoy your blog so much - the pink, roses, your sharing about yourself, family and what God is doing in your life.
Happy Pink Saturday

Carol said...

I am continuing on with my "Happy Dance" knowing you will have cards with the Apron images by changing the sentiments to read Aunties, Friends, etc..I am in line with the other Pink Peeps waiting for the download.
You have had so many beautiful, complimentary Posts but the one from Ms. Toy really captured my heart. Your Ministry means so much to so many.
