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.

Today for my pinkness I have this cute little vintage figurine that I purchased from my friend Diane of Saturday Finds. I treat myself to one of her adorable creations now and then. Her blog and Etsy shop are a real treat!

Next I have a look at St. Patricks day in my cottage. I just decorate a little for this holiday.

A cute little pillow that I purchased on ebay.

This little cake stand was a thrift store find. I change the ribbons for the holidays.

Some faux cookie ornaments that I made last year.

Look how pretty this little embroiderd linen is, just perfect for St. Patrick's Day.

A few pics of the snow we've had here last week.
My poor solar lights along the brick path have not worked in weeks due to no sun.

A view from our house to the barn.

Chairs just outside my back door.

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

Oh, I love that little pink organ girl! And that snow, it's beautiful, but I'm enjoying our spring-like temps we're having in Alabama this weekend. I don't think I would want to swap with you right now. Hope you have a wonderful Pink Saturday!

Happy Pink Saturday, Shirl! OMGosh & burrrrrr! Those photos make me want to put on a nice hot cup of tea and bundle up! I know it must be a hassle, but I do very much miss the snow!

So many pretty in pinkness delights! Your little pillow is so adorable and I love embrodered linen!

Thank you so much for explaining how you made the cookies. I bought some wood cutouts this evening and I'm going to give it a try tomorrow. I'll have to warn my son to not eat them. lol.

G'day, Ladies ...
Sherry will arrive on April 16th so we are planning a luncheon on April 17th in Mt. Airy, MD. After the luncheon (I personally am paying for everyone's lunch) we will come back to my house for a gathering of good times, great chatter & enjoyment. I'd like the gathering of we ladies to be around 12:30PM if it will work for you all. Final details will follow.

I have 2 extra beds & a couch for anyone who needs a stay over ... first come first serve.

We (Mt. Airy) are located just off Rt. 70 half way between Frederick & Baltimore.

I will need to know 2 weeks in advance of your coming for the restaurant reservations I've made. Please let me know ... we are so looking forward to meeting you all.

TTFN ~ Hugs, Marydon
