PINK SATURDAY 8/29/09 and the WINNER IS. . . . .

The first order of business for today is the awarding of my little new pink Capezio ballet slippers. I used the random number generator at but for the life of me I cannot get it to post here, so I will tell you that I entered the numbers from 1 to 43 and the lucky number was.......30. The 30th comment belongs to none other than the beautiful and talented ........


Ele, congratulations and I hope you do some of your usual extraordinary decorating with these little slippers! They will mail out Monday!!

Now it is once again time for another fun PINK SATURDAY with our sweet hostess Beverly of How Sweet the Sound, so please stop by and visit her and then check out all the PINK participants this week.

Believe it or not, I forgot to show this little rooster yesterday at the ROOSTER PARTY below, so since he is strutting next to my PINK cannisters, I thought it appropriate to show him today.

I got home sooo very late Friday evening, I didn't have time to make more PINK pictures (I was out of town whiling away the hours with my precious grandson & granddaughter!) so I'm sharing some of my favorite pinks from last year below.

I would like to introduce you to two new friends of mine, one is already a PINK SATURDAY gal and the other one SHOULD be!! Please do yourself a favor and meet these ladies and leave them a comment. You will enjoy your blog visit with both of them as they have lovely things to share!

Madammoiselle Alex ~ this is her first Pink Saturday ~ she lives in Paris & let's just say someone models for her in much pinkness & may give Cindy Crawford a run for her money!

Rebecca at Belle Maison ~ this is a girl after my own heart. We have the same taste in many things, she has beautiful photography on her blog, and she really loves PINK, too ~ hey, Rebecca, come join us next PINK SATURDAY!!!!

I'll be spending the better part of tonight & tomorrow visiting my pink girlfriends & my rooster girlfriends, too! Shoot, who am I kidding? I'll be visiting them all til at least the middle of next week!!! Better go get started!

Show Us Your Roosters Party

The Rooster Party is HERE all you chicks and roosters!! Our lovely hostess for this barnyard event is Barb of Bella Vista so stop by her blog here to see all the other participants!
I can't remember the last time I was so excited about a party.......So......
let's all
and get this party started!
I'm going to show you the ever growing FOWL of our home, but first, two adorable chandeliers I would one day like to have.

This one is REALLY doing it for me! I think it would look terrific with my pink/green toile kitchen chairs that I re-did!! Click here to see them.

I think this lamp would be great for Barb's home

Now, for my home tour.......

My old German pine cupboard is absolutely full of Rooster/Hen plates, graduated pitchers, and measuring bowls. Atop sits a cannister set and a small wooden rooster pull toy.

Cross-stitch that I did back in 1988

An old Prince Albert can that was repainted years ago ~ I purchased it at a flea market.

I told you I even have mirrors in the kitchen! Hubby, Daddy and I made the silverplated teapot lamp.

Hasn't everyone had one of these salt-dough creations sometime or another?

Cross-stitch I did many years ago ~ I found the pattern and my precious Daddy built the wooden clock casing for me. Mother has one that is stained.

Small Cloche with one of my favorite teensy roosters

International Tableware ~ Windy Hill (named for the weather vane theme)

I forgot I had this Chicken Ranch Saloon Birdhouse. Found it in a box in the utility room. Talk to me just right and I will sell it to you as it is brand new & I just placed it outside to be pictured. It will be listed Friday on my selling blog here.

What a conversation starter!!

I am also selling this pair of rooster/hen prints on my selling blog, too.

I just can't wait to see all the other roosters out in blogland today!
Happy Rooster Hugs & Pecks!

The Rooster Party is coming on Friday, so I started making my pics & guess who thinks HE has to be in every one of them? My sweet Muffin! He seems as excited about the party as I am!

Our hostess will be Barb at Bella Vista, and it isn't too late to sign up so run on over to her blog ~ there are over 175 participants!! That's a LOT of Roosters!!!!

Here is a sneek peek at my kitchen table

~ click pic to see my kitty ~

Found the pic below in an old Country Sampler Magazine & thought it was adorable & a good reminder about the party!

~ this pic is sized waaay too big so click to see it all ~ it is adorable! ~

Now Barb, PLEASE tell me this isn't YOUR dog?!?! I know it would be a fun mascot, but really, we must draw a line somewhere and I'm pretty sure this would qualify as animal cruelty!


Don't forget to sign up for my giveaway here before Friday midnight!

Big Hugs,
