~~~~~~~~~~HAPPY PINK SATURDAY~~~~~~~~~ And I Love Everything FRENCH~

(with a pretty soft pink rose)

Happy Pink Saturday!  Thank you so much to Miss Beverly of HOW SWEET THE SOUND for hosting our Pinkalicious Party for us each and every week!  I'm so glad I get to participate again!  It's been a while and I've been missing you!
(smells yummy on the inside)

It seems I've had the busiest week ever, but truth be told...I love it!  I spent hours upon hours working in my studio and somehow I managed to not only finish painting the room, but the two HUGE-A-MONGUS closets as well!  My Mr. AGPMan installed new shelving for me and I've vowed to truly get organized...and I will...even if it kills me! :)
(i love paris)

Anyway...I worked like a dog and even though I'm MORE THAN TIRED I know all the work will pay off during the busy holidays!  I barely breathe the last three months of the year and nevahhhh-evahhhh have time to do any re-do stuff.
Soooo...I'm a-doin'-it-now! :)
(i love tea, too)

In the midst of the chaos I somehow managed to finish up some new PINK PRETTIES that will be offered soon on my A Gathering Place Website.  They've been MORE THAN FUN to create and I've loved tapping into the All-Things-French-and-Paris craze!   

Since "I LOVE PARIS IN THE SPRINGTIME" (and in the Summer, Fall and Winter) I've continued working during my evening hours on some new greeting cards, tags and notes that showcase my affection for French Confection-ry.  I'm having so much fun and the possibilities are endless when working with vintage graphics!  If I'm not careful the wee morning hours can easily melt into my evening just doesn't feel like work!

Eeek!  I just love PhotoShop and Paint Shop Pro!  I'm soooo NOT a techno-girl so if I can master even a tiny bit of each of these programs it's not unusual to see me rock-out with a 'happy dance'.  :)

And there you have it!  My tiny contribution for
Miss B's Pink Saturday Parteee!  

Thanks for stopping by to visit me today...hope your day is wonderful!

Love to you...

Love them all Rebecca! I just love anything French and in particular Paris as I visit nearly every year!

Wonderful creations!

I was thinking about getting this photoshop paint shop pro thing but I was unsure, is it that easy to use?

Ann said...

How lucious are those pink tea bag covers!! I love all things Paris too and your love truly shows in your work.

Lynne Moncrieff said...

Happy Pink Saturday
I relate to your post as I am fixated with any Parisian (or French). It so gets under your skin, doesn't it.
A gorgeous post.

Marguerite (Tina) Smith Hart said...

Everything looks so pretty Rebecca and I especially love the little pillow!
You are way ahead of me if you have shelves to sort onto as I am still trying to make room to have shelves!!
But I figure as busy as you are if you found the time to get organized then so the heck can I!
Have a great weekend Rebecca!

Scrumptious pinks, sweet Rebecca! I love the delicate shades of pink on all your goodies! Love, LOVE the frenchy pillow. My youngest son just spent three weeks in Paris and Nantes at a Math conference. He got back yesterday and I can't wait to talk to him! He lives in another province so I have to be happy with the webcam and photos. He was supposed to bring me back a little momento of his trip and I can't wait to see what he got me! Happy Pink Saturday and have a lovely weekend. Blessings~

Beautiful Pink Post...You know me, I always love those sweet sachets & tea bag covers. My bottle arrived yesterday and it was way over the top, more than I expected. The glass is nice & heavy, and the petite fleurs just add to it's charm. Big Hugs for the extra surprise. My Miss "A" has already claimed it :)

Have a great weekend
