Pink Saturday

Hello and welcome to Pink Saturday hosted by Beverly of How Sweet the Sound. Thank you Beverly for hosting this fun event.
I'm so happy to tell you all that last Saturday I won a giveaway from Nancy at La Chambre Rose. The plant coming from Paula at Pondalicious.
The name of this pretty plant is "Canna Pink Sunburst". Above is what it will look like in bloom. Thank you so much Nancy and Paula for this wonderful giveaway. It arrived in beautiful condition. I've ordered alot of plants over the years and this is the best condition that a plant has ever arrived to me in.

Here is my beautiful Canna happy in my yard cozied with my "Elephant Ear" plants.

As you can see in the pic below, my hollyhocks are still happy and reaching for the sky. They are now taller than my rose trellis.

This week I picked up two pretty storage boxes. This one has cupcakes and glitter and will store my fabric and trims for altered art projects.
If you click on the pic you will get a close up and be able to see the pretty glitter on the boxes.

The next pretty one is a wedding box but so pretty I had to have it. The glitter does not show up in pic but it has glitter along the white diamond grid and is sooooo sweet!

This box will hold my trims for totes, pillows and my fabric cake boxes.
Thank you so much for stopping by, have a great weekend, I'll be back on Monday for a Blue Monday post with Sally of Smiling Sally.

♥Mimi♥ said...

Had the Grands for a few days so I am a day late and a dollar short for Pink Saturday! We just had so much fun and time got away from me☺

But, I didn't want to miss all the pinkness that brings sunshine to my weekend. And, another cool, sun-less day. My gardens look horrible this year. Nothing is growing...sigh.

So, your sweet blog post is cheering me up! Thanks so much for giving me something pretty to look at other than the dark clouds outside my kitchen window.

Nancy @ La Chambre Rose said...

Such pretty flowers! Not sure if I commented because the weekend presented distractions. Happy Pink Saturday! Thanks so much for mentioning me.

Susie Jefferson said...

LOVE the boxes (always partial to a cookie) and the pink lillies are lovely. Happy Pink Saturday! (Big apologies, I know I'm late, but I've been overwhelmed with deadlines and teaching classes Sat & Sun - and only now just getting a chance to go blog-hopping).

rosechicfriends said...

Those boxes are just tooooo cute!!! Oh and I have such sweet memories of my Grams Holly Hocks...I have some that are dwarfed and a pretty purple color...but I still love the Talls one.

I just plan to do a random blog. I think so many join other planned blogs and don't want to do one more. SO If you join me, just let me know and I will tell others. How's that?

Thanks for stopping by!

Oh, I think you may have answered a question I posted on my blog today. I was trying to find out what a flower was and it looks just like your hollyhocks, beautiful. I love the cupcake box, do you mind if I ask where you found it! I hope you have a good week.

Hi Shirl! Just had to get caught up on all your past posts this evening. You have such pretties ALWAYS!! Love the redwork & x-stitch you are working on, & those curtains for Jen are precious! If I tell you my sewing machine is down would you do some for me? LOL
