PINK SATURDAY


Welcome to Pink Saturday hosted by Beverly of How Sweet the Sound. Another busy week here so I've gone through my files and found some really old pinkness to show you.


First is a picture of my silk ribbon towels on display in my sisters shop many years ago. Camera's back then were not that great.



Next I have a picture of a pink bridesmaid bouquet that I made while in floral design school, many years ago!





My flower girl Courtney back in 1971. She was a sweetie! The bottom of her dress was baby pink, it looks white in this pic.

Thank you so much for stopping by, I hope to get some Christmas decorations out this week so maybe next week I'll have some Christmas to show you. I've been seeing some on blogs and love it! Don't you?

Blessings, Shirl

Lovely as always, sweetpea! I think you could photograph your home for a year and we'd still not see all the goodies in it. Just so much beauty to hold the eyes!
Smooches,

Mom love all the tea towls with silk ribbon embrodery.Did Aunt Betty keep that victorian sofa when she sold the shop??Thats like the one I want from buck antique market except it needs new fabric it was a red with gold specks on it.Love the flower bouquet you did.Courtney is so cute in that pic.Hugs!love you, jen

Shirl said...

Thank you so much girls! Becky I'm not sure if that setee was velvet or not. My sister has since sold her shop when she retired don't know if she took that home with her or left it. I'll have to ask her. She has the most beautiful Southern Home, it would be perfect in it! Thank you CC, keep up that embroidery it gets earsier as you go on!
Blessings, Shirl
