PINK SATURDAY, BLUE MONDAY & A GIFT FROM A BLOGGING FRIEND



Hello and welcome to Pink Saturday hosted by Beverly of How Sweet the Sound. Thank you Beverly for hosting this fun event.

Today for my pinkness I'm sharing with you my sweet little Sacred Heart collection.
My friend Lorena over at Rose Chic friends this past summer had asked me to join her with posting collections, I have such a busy schedule that I was not able to get my pics taken until recently so I'm too late to join in with Lorena but I thought I would show you the collections that I have that are pink.

I started my collection of Sacred Hearts of Jesus with my Mother's little Sacred Heart Hummel by Goebel. Then I added these two hand painted prints that I had found in the summer of 2008 at an antique mall in NJ.

Below is a close up of the little prayer printed on one of them. The Sacred Heart of Jesus is supposed to remind us of his burning love for us.



A closeup of the little Hummel.






I'm still on the lookout for some vintage Sacred Hearts to add to my collection.




I received this adorable hand painted package in the mail last week. I won a giveaway from Laurie at Charming Designs a few weeks ago. Packaging is just to pretty to toss out so I will have to save this to use in paper crafting.


Laurie painted this cute little charm, and included a chain to use as a necklace and a ring to use as a keychain.




The back is a quilt block and has a pretty glittery shine to it. I could not get that little glare off this pic even using the no flash museum setting of my camera.

Thank you so much Lourie! I love it and will always treasure it!



I'm doing a double post again this week so that the rest of the week I will have time to visit blogs.

Welcome to my Blue Monday post hosted by Sally of Smiling Sally.



For my blue this week I have this pretty blue and rose fleece that I purchased at Joanne's Fabric Store. I thought the colors were so pretty and I love using them as a cover up on the couch. I also use them as a shawl on a chilly morning. Another way I use them is on my front proch just tossed over a chair or chaise. I love the feel of these soft fleese blankets.







I took several different closeups of it so you could see all the pretty things going on on this blanket.

Thank you so much for stopping by, I hope you enjoyed all my little things that I've shared with you today. Have a wonderful week and I will be visiting blogs all week long!

Blessings, Shirl
