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

Before I get into my pink this week I just wanted to share the good news that my son Bob made Sergeant yesterday. We are so proud of him. He's done his training now and on his way to his deployment base. Congrats Bob, we love you and are so proud of you!!!!!!Be safe!!!!!!!

Now on to a little pinkness. Here's a cute little cross stitched pillow that I made last year. Has just a little pink but oh so cute!!!!!

I love silhouettes and this week I cross stitched this little one. Found this little frame in my stash and it worked out perfect.

Below is a pair of vintage silhouettes that I purchased on ebay, I did not read the auction good and was so sad when they arrived and one did not have the beveled glass. Oh well they are still adorable.
Some closeups.

Well that's it for this week, thank you so much for stopping by, it was so nice to visit with you!
Have a wonderful week!
Blessings, Shirl

Hi Shirl,
Big Congrats to you son for making Sergeant. I know you are so proud of him and his leadership. Please thank him for us for his continued service to our country to keep us all free. His is a true Hero! Continued prayers for him as he continues his mission.

Your pinkness is gorgeous and I love this little Spring pillow you designed. Really inspires Spring. Love your header in the shades of purple and those silhouettes are wonderful that you got on ebay. I adore your cross stitch silhouette with that darling frame. Those are a favorite of mine too.

Hope you are enjoying warmer days and had a special Easter. Thank you for stopping by and your kind words. Have a great week.
Love ya,
Celestina Marie

Congrats to Bobby! He looks so happy and handsome. May God love and protect him and bring him home safely and soon!

Shirl, I always love your posts, but it is absolutely uncanny how many of the same things that you and I both love. I'm soooo into silhouettes, too! Your ebay ones are beautiful. I need that pattern of the cross-stitch one, too!! Love the frame you put her in!
The shower/ducky pillow is just way too cute.
Big Hugs,
