Pink Saturday Fun

Hello Pinkies!!  Isn't Pink Saturday so much fun? We have Beverly to thank for all this pinkie goodness.  Be sure you go over to her
blog and check out all the lovely posts.

I'm startin out with the pillow thing again!  Yep, I just realized what I have to go through every night just to get in bed.  This stack is what I remove from the bed every night!  Now if Mr. Sissie gets there first, that's another story.  Hard to tell where they end up after he says @#&%!*#!  Oh well, doesn't bother me at all, nope not one bit.  You know why??  Because their PINK !!

While I'm on the subject, I think I'll keep my Pink focus on the Pink in my bedroom.
Like, dreamy vintage sheets that feel like silk and so lovely to the touch.  I love them and if they have a monogram, I have to have them!  These I bought from Ms. Stephanie at Miss Minnie's, long before I had a booth.  She gave me the best deal ever!
I often wonder whose initials were these and did they receive these sheets as a wedding gift, or have them made for themselves??????

This Monet reproduction print hangs in my bedroom,
I just love the garden with the pink flowers.  I have to fight with myself everyday to keep from painting that dang gold frame.
I want it white, but I am resisting for fear of messing it up!

I even have a pink princess phone and a pink alarm clock!

I'm going to leave you all with this.  While rummaging through some stuff, I found this little book that I gave to my son
many years ago.  I had written inside "A great lesson to
carry throughout life."
It's the much-loved tale of a stuffed animal's
quest to become Real.
Written in 1922......The Velveteen Rabbit affirms the
power of love.
The Rabbit learns that "when a child loves you, then
you become Real."

If you haven't already, be sure and read it to your children
or grandchildren, or just read it yourself.
You'll be glad that you did.

Happy Pink Saturday Everyone!

What a lovely post, Sissie!! I just love your alarm clock and princess phone. I always wanted a princess phone . . . .

I think I'll buy the Velveteen Rabbit for my niece Jennifer who is going to be a new mama next month!

Have a wonderful Pink Saturday!!


Pam said...

The phone is wonderful and a pink clock too! It's been years since I read to Velveteen Rabbit to my boys. It's time to find it and read to the Granddaughters.

Lovely post.

Happy Pink Saturday

Sissie! The pillows are so beautiful the pink phone makes me laugh as I remember my moms friend's daughter was a little older than me and when I was 6 would go to visit and love her room because of the pink phone! I love the Velveteen Rabbit...Happy Pink SAturday Grace

Oh live in a pink paradise! I want to come over and play with you!

Your sheets are amazing and like you, I wonder who the previous owners were and what occasion they received the treasure I now own.

Have a fabulous weekend!

Love and hugs,

Beautiful pinks. I haven't seen a Princess phone in years. How perfect it looks next to the pink clock.

Bonjour Sissie,
Love this pink post, the princess phone is so you. I bet deep down your husband even likes that mountain of pillows:)- they are so sweet to us aren't they?
The Velveteen Rabbit is so wonderful.
Have a Pink Saturday!

Maureen said...

Everything is pretty when pink. I had the same thought about that frame even before reading your comment - right down to the part about resisting it!

GypsyNurse said...

Gloomy and gray over in my neck of the woods today so all of the pinks shared this Saturday are so special and cheerful. They remind me that there are more colors than just white, gray and black.Your pinks are wonderful! My goodness - so special☺

I hope your weekend is filled with sunshine surrounded by the laugher of those you love.

Please pray for the people of Haiti. May God bless each and every soul.

Beautiful pillows, Sissie! Ohhh, your pink alarm clock and your phone are so cute! My mobile phone is pink too but I haven't seen a regular one in pink yet. Have a great pink Saturday!

Hi Sissie sweet friend, I think your room is gorgeous and you leave me wanting to see much more. I also used to have a pink phone, the same priness style, I wonder what ever happened to it. Happy Pink Saturday, Char

CollectIn Texas Gal said...

Good to see all your pretty pink pillows and other bedroom pinks. I like the gold frame, but with the way you do everything with such flair, don't be afraid of messing it up. It's been so long since I read the Velveteen Rabbit. Thanks for the Grands will love it, too. Happy Pinkday!

Betty (picture circa 1951) said...

Quite a stack of pillows! That pink princess phone is great. I'm going to have to read The Velveteen Rabbit. I guess I've led a sheltered life...I've never read it!

Vicki said...

Hello, Sissie,
I always love to come and visit you for some pink inspiration. I couldn't help but laugh at your stack of pillows on your bed because mine is the same way! A girl can never have too many! Your pink phone reminds me of my teenage years! Happy Pink Saturday, sweet friend! Vicki

Mollye said...

Hey Sissie, Each time I read about Mr. Sissie I crack completely up! Love all the pinks and do not. Repeat Do Not be afraid of ruining the frame or painting. Just pop the frame off and grab that white paint. It will be gorgeous to go with the painting inside. Love the phone and clock. A princess phone for Princess Sissie. Have a great weekend and week ahead, XXMollye

BethieJ said...

BEAUTIFUL pink shares!! I loved everything!!
and got a good chuckle out of your pillow story and your hubby taking them off.. I had to share it with my hubby (he would use those same words!)
Happy Pink Saturday!

themixiepixie said...

Love your Pink Saurday Post and your wonderful blog design. Happy pink Saturday 2U! I would adore any (or all) of your pink items in my bedroom- (big grin). I bought a lovely vintage pillow case at the local thrift just yesterday, which I plan to put on my post next Saturday. It has hand made lace with Pink ric-rac interwoven. A couple of stitches where it was coming off, and it's perfect again. Just $1! I will put you in my next pink post, and hope you come by to see mine. Hugs!

My name is PJ. said...

LOVE the Velveteen Rabbit! I read it to my kids too. My mom read it to us when we were kids.

Lovely as always, Sissie. I can no longer see the color pink without you coming immediately to mind! Really!

How come you don't have an etsy shop? Haven't I asked that before? I'm such a big etsy supporter. I could use a cloche or two.

Oh, I love your pillow!

Happy Pink Saturday! Do stop by my blog. I am having a give away for a mini-makeover by Susie of 1st Floor Flat to celebrate my new blog look.

mythoughtsmyvoice said...

LOL I thinks it's funny - the "bed scene" story. Oh it enclosed in quotes cause we're talking pillow here :-)

I have not read the Velveteen Rabbit, not even when I was young. And based on what you said I think it is a precious book to have. I will have to remember it just in case I come across it.

Belated PS!



Sissie, you are killing me here! softly with all your pinks! and whites! and pillows and everything. I think the gold frame looks nice the way it is. But if you paint it , please show us a before and after. oh... didn't you know... I consider you my teacher and I am a willing student to learn all things shabby and pretty from you. Can't wait for your next post er.. I mean class:)
