Hello and welcome to my Pink Saturday Post hosted by Beverly of How Sweet the Sound. If you go to visit her you can get a list of all the participants.

It finally stopped snowing here in WV this week, it has been snowing on and off since Dec. 17 th. It was nice to get back to work after about 3 weeks off. I think our students were actually glad to be back at school also! They finally had their Christmas party on Jan 11th.

Today I had alot more pink & fun things going on around the cottage to show you but my ISP is not being cooperative so I'll just show you some of my Valentine decorating that I started this week.
I'm still working on a some new creations for Valentine's Day and I'll have more to share with you later.

A few close ups.

Thank you so much for stopping by, it was so nice to visit with you!
Have a wonderful week!
Blessings, Shirl

Hi Shirl,

Love all of your pink pretties for valentines day! What a pretty lamp that is too! I wish I could come and see the deer too. They are adorable! Love the one prancing!
It's amazing they know what time to come to look for your hubby. We actually have a deer that comes up our street in the summer, looking for the pretty blooms on the flowers. I was shocked, because there is a busy street here, and lots of houses. Not out in the woods. there is a smallwooded area at the end of our block though, and they come right up the street going in between the houses. My neighbor was so mad, because they ate her lillies. I would sneak out at night, and put a little plate of apples out for them. She would be so mad if she knew! They are just beautiful creatures. So, they like corn huh? Maybe I can find some around here someplace.

Gloomy and gray over in my neck of the woods today so all of the pinks shared this Saturday are so special and cheerful. They remind me that there are more colors than just white, gray and black.Your pinks are wonderful! My goodness - so special☺ Love your header - may I have a cookie, please?

I hope your weekend is filled with sunshine surrounded by the laugher of those you love.

Please pray for the people of Haiti. May God bless each and every soul.
