Hello and Welcome to Pink Saturday hosted by Beverly of How Sweet The Sound. You can go to her blog to get a list of the people participating in this weeks Pink Saturday.

I have been collecting vintage pink crochet pot holders for the teatime
& cupcakes guest bedroom.

Pretty pink pins for sewing!

A pretty southern belle table cover.
I am painting my sewing room in pale pink and I have be getting jars to put supples in. They will go in a big corner desk that I have my sewing maching in. I have to paint the desk then these jars will go into the sections of the desk.

Here's a pretty storage box that I purchased on ebay.

I store all my vintage baby trinkets in it.

Cute little round box that I found in an antique store.

Look at how pretty these fabrics are, they look like cotton candy! I got them in walmart for $1.00 a yard.
Well that's it for my Pink Saturday, I hope you enjoyed your visit. Be sure to stop by and visit my new blog when you have time. Stitches-of-Love.

Shirl! It is all so pretty...where do I start? The doll with the white hair is my favorite. Love her! I remember the beautiful things you made for the swap. The ribbon roses are gorgeous.

Hi Shirl!
I can't say what I like best because I liked it all! It is a pink Heaven :0).
Thank you for stopping by and saying hello. I so envy that you live in a pre civil war home, even more that you are on 250 acres. Oh my! I don't think I even know what that kind of space feels like! Ha Ha!
I hope you are enjoying your day and that marvelous view from your porch...sigh*
