PINK SATURDAY


Hello and welcome to Pink Saturday hosted by Beverly of How Sweet the Sound. Our group has grown so much over the year, it's so nice to have every Saturday to look forward to all this pinkness. Thank you so much to everyone who visits my blog and leaves such a nice comment. I'm hoping to have more blogging time and will be able to visit more blogs in 2009.
The picture above is of a pink lemonade cake that I made for company on Friday night.
Such an easy cake to make, just take a white cake mix for the liquid called for in the cake mix, use the juice and pulp of two lemons then add water to equal the amount of liquid the mix calls for. For the frosting I use 3 sticks of light margerine, 1 tsp vanilla, 1 lb. conf. sugar and the juice of 1/2 lemon, 1/4 tsp of pink lemonade Crystal Light powder and pink food color to liking. Beat for about 10 till light and fluffy, frost cake and enjoy.



Next I have a pretty pink pearl necklace that I bought at Walmart for my pretty little Angel. Shhhhhh don't tell her it's supposed to be for a doggie!!!!!



Sorry for her back but you could not see the pretty necklace with her big mane in the front. LOL
Thank you so much for stopping by, I enjoyed your visit and would love to hear from you!
Bless You, Shirl

Hello Shirley! Love your post! You have the greatest vintage china. Is the jadite cakestand a family piece? I remember those cup and saucer dishes with the pretty blue flowers. I am slowly adding to my vintage china collection. I use my vintage pieces. I love seeing 'made in the USA" on dishes! I don't trust anything from China to not be poisoned with lead. I won't get started on that! (smile) Have a wonderful weekend!

Hi Shirl,
Boy I was laughing here today, and so admiring all the goodies Jenn made for you!!! The table was awesome! I had that plum pudding candle from Avon and forgot to pull it out! Your kitty cracks me up with her special look! Kittys are so awesome the way they give us a look like, "Quit pestering me"! Precious pearls!!! Please stop by to help vote for me as the Queen of pink!! I need votes, I'm getting beat, can you believe it? Sending cozy thoughts, Lori

Hi, Shirl, thanks for visiting my blog. I do so love that cake and cakestand. Coming back to your blog, I noticed that plate with the green edge and the picture of the lady in the center. What pattern is that? It reminds me of American Limoges.
