PINK SATURDAY, 200th POST & GIVEAWAY

Hello and welcome to a very special Pink Saturday hosted by our sweet Beverly of How Sweet the Sound. Today is the 2nd Birthday of Pink Saturday's. This event ,thanks to Beverly, has been a huge success, it has been so much fun to meet all you other Pink Bloggers out there. I'm so blessed to have met you all and enjoy our little chats every week. Thank you Beverly and Congrats on your success!
Now on to some pinkness from my vacation this past week.

This pretty crazy quilt heart I picked up in an antique mall. I usually buy something from this gals booth every time I visit the mall. She is so creative and her designs just tug at your heart. The heart sets in an old bed spring which I'm not sure if I'm going to leave it in that or not. A little too primitive for my decorating.
I love how she included an old vintage photo and an old locket with pics still inside. I'm thinking about changing the pics out and putting some old ones of my Mom's.

In celebration of the Pink Saturdays 2nd Birthday and for my reaching my 200th post I've having a giveaway.
Just post a comment on this or my next post (monday) and I will enter your name in my drawing. To enter join as a follower (or already one, let me know)I will put your name in and if you link up with my giveaway with this pic I will add you in a 2nd time.
For my giveaway I'm giving the winner one of my little felt bunnies with silk ribbon embroidered trim.
Good Luck! I will draw the winner Friday evening next week and post the winner next Saturday.
Below is an adorable little pillow that I purchased in my favorite quilt shop in NJ called "City Quilts". It's saying really tugged at my heart because I so often say this myself. I always try to plant seeds of kindness along my path.



Look how sweet these 30's repo fabrics are! I'm making a block of the month quilt in my Quilt Guild and I'm using 30's repos. Love them!
A pretty little vintage sugar bowl from the Antique Mall in Burlington, NJ.
Some pretty vintage doilies from the same mall. Can't resist an embroidered basket!
In honor of my son Bob being deployed I'm doing my front porch in a patriotic theme this summer. I was thrilled to find this quilted framed flag with pink rosebuds. Although my porch in being decorated in red, white and blue this year it still has touches of pink here and there so this was perfect.
Next week I have a very special post, finally I have taken pics of my new Teatime/Cupcake Crafting Guest Bedroom.
What is behind this door? Stop back next week and see!!!!!!!!
A perfect saying for guests who will stay in this room.


Thank you so much for stopping by, it was so nice to visit with you. A big Happy Birthday To Beverly and Pink Saturday! I will be back Monday with a Blue Monday/Memorial Day post.
Blessings to ya! Shirl

Shirl, The crazy quilt heart is very special. Tucking that idea away for the future as I enjoy doing this type of handwork. The fabrics you've chosen for your upcoming fabric are adorable. Prices on the orig. old feedsack prints have gone so high. So wonderful that they're bringing some of these old patterns back.
Happy PS! xo Sue

The little bunny is so adorable ~ aren't these giveaways fun?!?! BTW, I honestly thought I was already a follower because I stalk your blog regularly thru my Google Reader each time you post, but it allowed me to add myself, so I guess I wasn't following....remedied that!

Celestina Marie Designs said...

Hi Shirl,
What a marvelous post for pinkness. Happy Pink Saturday and the 2nd Birthday of this great weekly event.

First off, I love your blog header. So summery and pretty.
The quilted heart you got on your trip is just gorgeous. I love the bed spring holder. If you think it is too primitive, you might spray paint it ivory or pink. It is really a unique way to display this gorgoues heart. Love the basket linens you found too.

Congrats on your 200th post. Please enter me in your special giveaway.
I love the idea to decorate your porch this summer in red, white and blue.
My prayers remain for your son and our thankgiving to him for serving our country so proudly.
Thank you for stopping by and
have a wonderful Memorial Day weekend.
Love ya, Celestina Marie

CC said...

Oh my!!!!!!!! How many ways are there to say gorgeous and beautiful. I loved everything,from the crazy quilt heart to the 30's repo fabric.
I spotted sweet Sunbonnet Sue in the pink fabric..*sighs, now I have to look at JoAnn's to see if I can find some for myself. If it's Sue..I just have to have it.
More importantly....will you thank your son for his service to our country. So many young people serve and protect us,a lot of times with no thanks... well, a big hug from this mama of 2 that servrd proudly...a big hug and thank you to your son. I pray that he and all the others come home safely.. May God bless and watch over them.. Love and hugs..CC

KatCollects said...

Happy Pink Saturday, on Sunday : ) Oh I love the little bunny, please add my name. And I think you should paint the bed spring off white or light pink , then it wouldn't look primitive anymore, but more shabby chic : ) I hope you are doing well, thinking of your Son and your famil. My Baby is home on leave right now for 2 weeks before he deploys.
Hugs,
Kathy

Donna said...
