PINK SATURDAY 1 Yr. Anniversary! 5/30/09

Thought it would be fitting to feature a PINK birthday cake with one star candle in honor of the one year anniversary of PINK SATURDAY!! Of course, Muffin decided to be in the picture, too! He is always very curious when I make pictures & thinks he should be in the center of all of them. I often times just crop him out, but he looks so sweet that I left him in this one!

PINK SATURDAY is the terrific brainchild of our own sweet Beverly at How Sweet the Sound. She tirelessly heads up the glorious PINK party each week & we are all so indebted to her for the gorgeousness she spurs us on to create/share! I honestly can't remember what Saturdays were like before this!! Please visit her here to see all the other PINK participants today!

This lovely Bailey Banks & Biddle chocolate brown box tied in pink ribbon was gifted to me by my daughter & soon to be son-in-law the night before their wedding at the rehearsal dinner about a year and a half ago.
Inside was this darling sterling silver cha-cha bracelet of pink & ivory pearls with a pink breast cancer awareness ribbon charm, a cause close to my heart. This gift was in appreciation for the work I did in helping plan their wedding.

The lovely blingy votive candle was a gift from my sweet friend & PRH Sister Katie of Rose Breeze Boutique. She used my daughter's chosen colors of pink/brown to decorate the votive for me to keep in remembrance of the wedding.

I love bling & couldn't resist showing you my pink ring, a pink Swarovski bracelet, & a gold cuff bracelet with sparkling pink rhinestones.

I recently purchased these pretty pink sandals for Easter & so enjoy wearing them.

Love my sweet glittery lovebirds on a pink heart

My precious friend & PRH Sister Lorena of Rose Chic Friends gifted me with this adorable PINK chenille tassel. It hangs proudly on my bedroom dresser mirror. I love the individual clay roses that she sculpts & uses on many of her items. She puts so much thought & love in everything she creates.

Ending this post with a favorite little ornament of mine ~ a PINK mini-chandelier ~ how perfect!

Hello! For PINK SATURDAY, I'm sharing a cottage sign that hangs over the doorway to our master bath.

Also in our bedroom is my very favorite antique picture frame. Gilt, beautifully detailed, with the original convex glass covering a favorite PINK ROSES fabric of mine. You can also see the beaded detailing on our valances & the sweet Rachel Ashwell PINK fabric shades below.

My dear friend in WA state has a new best friend, Tessa, all dressed up in her PINK finery!! Isn't she just a little doll?!?

Please hop over to Beverly's at How Sweet the Sound to see more gorgeous pink participants!

**My dear friend Connie of Living Beautifully & her sweet daughter Nan of Manic for Mosaics, both PRH sisters of mine, have suffered a terrible loss this week. Late Thursday afternoon, Nan lost her husband Bill. He had been scheduled for surgery on Friday, but was not able to make it. Please visit both of my dear friend's blogs & leave them a comment, & please pray for them & their family at this sad time.

Since prom season is upon us, thought you girls might enjoy this blue sequined prom dress. Doesn't it remind you of I Dream of Jeanie?!?!

I love blue/rust color combinations & this sweet little "fishing" birdie is just the prettiest colors.

Please visit all the other Blue Monday participants here....and have a great week!

I always do my Pink Saturday posts on Friday evening & this one will have to be a short one because my precious granddaughter is spending the night and we don't have much 'puter time tonight......

A favorite vintage gilt framed mirror of mine above .....
A bunny collar that my daughter wore one Easter over a dress I made for her to match the collar, as it came first ~ it stays on display year-round in the upstairs guest bath. Sweet pink bunny ears!

A sweet print called "Behold the Lamb"

And I snapped this picture Thursday while out shopping.....let's all hop in this adorable PINK limo & cruise on over to Beverly's at How Sweet the Sound to see more gorgeous pink participants!

For the longest time I have been enjoying Smiling Sal's BLUE Mondays. I really enjoy visiting her blog here & seeing all the pretty blues that everyone shares.

I have been so very inspired by my sweet PRH sister Shirl of Shirl's Rose Cottage & her wonderful Blue Monday posts that I wanted to join in, too, & share my love of BLUE!

So here is my very first Blue Monday......

These little bunnies stay out year-round in my upstairs guest bathroom, so I thought I would share them with you today for Pink Saturday.

I cross-stitched both of these pieces back in the late 80's. My daddy made the heart peg shelf for me ~ actually I begged him to make me 4 ~ and he did!

This picture was made in my mother's living room. The lampshade is for sale here on my selling blog, AngelicAccents A la Carte.

So many of you seem to enjoy seeing my antique mirrors, so I will close with my favorite purse bank, cache' pot filled with pink roses, & a diamond beveled oval antique mirror. Check out my others here.

Please visit our sweet hostess, Beverly of How Sweet the Sound to visit more Pink Saturday participants!

PINK Saturday Hugs,
