Hello and welcome to Pink Saturday hosted by Beverly of How Sweet the Sound. If you stop by to see her you can get a list of all the other participants.
The pic above is a prettty pink cake for company stopping by.

The picture above is a pretty green basket of roses that a friend of mine sent to my husband and I this past week. She said she could not resist buying it for me because the pretty green basket reminded her of my jadeite dishes and the roses reminded her of the roses in every room of my home. So sweet of her to do this!

A few closeups.

Another gift from a friend this week was this pretty bunny bowl. Neither of these frineds of mine have a blog so I can't link you to them.

Also from her a pretty pink angel post it notes.

No pink here but I had to share this with you. My daughter Jen over at Jen's Petal Palace surprised me with this pretty crochet green cross this week. I put it right in my scripture study book, I needed a bookmark for that book, thank you so much Jen!

Lavender and a few touches of pink in this prettty tag that I made for a friend this past week.

Turns out the winner of my giveaway Miss Peach is a kitty. Look how sweet she looks unpacking her box. I included some kitty toys and treats for Miss Peach. How sweet she is. I even made her own tag for her!

She said her Mommy was so happy with all the pretty things!
She hung her ribbon embroidered hearts on her mantel with her other hearts. Look at how pretty they look in her home.

She took a beautiful closeup of my embroidery.
Turns out Miss Peach's mommy has a beautiful pitcher and bowl from Italy that matches the one I sent her perfectly. She has all her pretty tags in it from her blogging friends. Thank you Miss Peach for sharing all these pretty pics with me! Angel will be sending you some of her fresh out of the garden catnip this summer!

Thank you so much for stopping by, it was so nice to visit with you!
Bless you, Shirl

Mum and I were so happy to see Miss Peach had won the givaway. Miss Peach has not been so well and that would have been so nice for her and her mum.

we just love your bog, so full of nice things.
