Hello and welcome to Pink Saturday hosted by Beverly of How Sweet the Sound. Thank you Beverly for hosting this fun event.
Today I have just touches in pink in my foyer all decorated up for spring.

Below is the prettiest pic of Lily of the Valley sent to me last year by my Dear Sweet Friend Miss Peach of Miss Peach's Meow. Lily of the Valley is one of my favorite flowers and I have not been able to get them to grow here. I had a beautiful stand of them growing at my first home. I'm gonna keep trying though, I'd love to be able to make a bouquet like Miss Peach did in this pic.

Last week I showed you some pics of my little Ribbon Lady picture that I made, thank you all so much for your sweet comments about her.
I had several requests and emails asking if I was going to make these to sell.
Yes I will be selling them, I am looking for some nice frames, I think they would be best under glass.
When I'm ready to list some on my Etsy Shop I will be sure to post them in here first.

Some of you might remember last fall I showed you these bulbs that I was planting. Well they came up beautiful. The Allium is not open yet the the Tulip Angelique is just beautiful. Take a look.

There's some great new magazines out there on the newstands this week for you gals who love magazines like I do.
I have a three day weekend and I'm really enjoying relaxing on the porch and reading them. We had some lovely weather this spring in WV.

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

What a great posting today! You have shared with us so many lovely things!! I love your style as it speaks to my heart!
I am a magazine addict too but I find that I like the magazines of the past and now my only real favorite is Romantic Country and Victorian homes.Sometimes Romantic homes but I feel it is not like it was in the past. What do you think??

Connie said...

Hi Shirl!

I love your pink ribbon lady!

Just lovely! You are so talented.

Thank-you for this fun post!

Hi Shirl,
I so enjoy visiting you on Pink Saturdays and seeing all your lovely treasures. I also LOVE your ribbon lady and I think one with a blue dress and dark hair would be very pretty (hint, hint!)
I made the lemon cake in the Southern Lady magazine and it's very GOOD!!! I made it for Easter, but not a layer cake. Cupcakes and a 8x11 cake. The frosting...AWESOME!!! Love lemon in the spring/summer!
