Hello and welcome to Pink Saturday hosted by Beverly of How Sweet the Sound. If you stop by to visit her you can get a list of all the other participants. The pic above is a pretty tag that I made for my church meeting, (there are 19 more on my previous post), if you have not seen them yet scroll down and take a look. Please feel free to click on the pic to get a larger view.

The pic above is a pretty pincushion that I bought from my friends Etsy Shop. Maryjane from Beehive Cottage also sent me that crochet cloth and the pretty note pad below. Thank you Maryjane, your work is just stunning!

On Thursday I had a friend over for stitching day and lunch. We get together every once in a while to make something. This week we made an ice cream cone quilted wall hanging. I'll post the pic next week of our quilt tops. Below is a yummy yellow cake with pink buttercream frosting for our desert. My grandsons will be happy to see a real cake in the cake dish when they come in. With all the faux cakes around here they never know what they can eat. LOL

My sweet stitching friend Tracy surprised me with the pretty pink basket when she came over. Look how cute!

Tracy handpainted the pink on this basket and added a pretty lace with pink rosebud trim.
Filled with pink goodies inside, pink jellybeans, pink and mint green ribbon collection, a pink angel kit to make a safety pin angel, yummy raspberry almond M&M's and an egg card holder. Thank you so much Tracy for this thoughtful gift! Tracy does not have a blog so I can't link you to her.

My friend Miss Peach from over at Miss Peach's Meowz is still recovering from her surgery. Now her lapdaddy has had a heart attack. Please keep him in your prayers. Prayers hugs and purrs to you and your lapdaddy Miss Peach!

Thank you so much for stopping by. It was nice to visit with you. If you have time stop scroll down and look at my Blue Monday post from last week. I made some real pretty things for a church meeting. I will be back on Monday with part one of a three part post of my Americana Bath.
Bless you, Shirl

Happy Pink Saturday. Your blog is just such a delight to visit each week. Of course, all of the pink goodies always warm my ♥. This week everyone seems to be out-doing themselves!

Wishing you, and all those close to your ♥, a purr-fect weekend filled with joy, peace and gracious living.

You are a friend of Miss Peach, too. She sure has had some trying times and now a sick daddy. So, so sad.

BTW, you MUST put a pink bow on your Newfie for Pink Saturday☺

MISS PEACH ~(^.^)~ said...

Oh Miss Shirl!! As I was scrolling down looking at your wonderful eye candy I said, "Hey I have a lamp like that!!!.....and a red cat like that too!.....Meowing out loud that is my lamp and cat!!
I then laughed out loud and felt so silly. But it made my heart leap good to do that after the worrisome week we have had.
Thank you for loving us so much. We are behind in our email returns but wanted you to know that we have something VERY SPECIAL for you. I know you will love it...if you don't already have it. If you do, can always use another one.
Give us more time until we find a good mailing box...we are slow at these things right now.
Oh and mommy is making something for your Americana bathroom. We know for sure you won't already have that:)
We are intrigued but your faux cakes and deserts that you keep featuring. Amazing!
Love Karla and the cozy cottage company
