Pink soothes the heart and fills it with love and so does PINK SATURDAY!!!

Doesn't the color Pink make you feel good?  I think that's why we all love Pink Saturday. Last week there were 165 Pink Bloggers participating!!  So, let's get our pinkness on.

I went to my very first auction last week and won the bid for this wonderful vintage Pink cotton coverlet.  The pink pillow sham is one of my creations using a vintage doilie as the center.

Rosette Pins that I made for my least one of
them is Pink....

Now, it's time to go visit Beverly and checkout all the other wonderful Pink Saturday posts.  You're going to love it!

                                          'til next time.....

Happy Pink Saturday Sissie...
I love your pinks, so pretty as always.
Such a beautiful coverlet, and I hate to think what you ended up paying for it, but I hope it was at a fraction of what it is worth? Whew!!

You have done an awesome job with the rosette pins. They are so beautiful. Love the pink.

Have a beautiful Saturday sweetie. Country hugs and much love...Sherry

What a lovely pillow sham and cotton coverlet. Just give me three seconds to give in to my naughty jealousy and then, I'll be fine.

Breathe, breathe, breathe Okay, now. I can enjoy the fact that you own these, instead of me.

Lovely, as always. I adore what you do with the doilies and your pillow slips (good old-fashioned term,eh?)

I'm guessing I will have to use my thesaurus to come up with new words to describe your posts. Can't have them all reading the same. NosireeBob! You know Bob, don't you?

Have a wonderful weekend, Sissie!

Polly said...

Hi Sissie! Pretty pretty!!! I am wondering if you would be willing to share how you make your rosettes? I have been playing around and made a few with a technique I found on the web, but mine aren't turning out as lovely as yours!! I would like to learn to make some little ones that I could use as a barrette. Please let me know if you would be willing to share your secret! Thanks!
