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

I'm sorry that I did not get to post my giveaway winner last week. I've had ISP problems all week long. First my Sprint wireless adaptor broke and they sent me a new one, then I could not activate it because they released a new phone this week that had the system all tied up. It was awful. No internet most of the week and it's my lifeline to my son if Afghanistan. I was not a happy camper!!!! I did not get to visit any blogs but I promise I will be there to see you this week, it might take me all week but I will be there. LOL

Thank you so much to all of you who joined as a follower and entered my giveaway. I also want to thank all of you for the prayers and well wishes for my son.

~~~~~~~~~~~~AND THE WINNER IS~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


Congrats CC!! I hope you enjoy this sweet little bunny.

Here is the cute little bunny that CC won!

Today for my Pinkness I'm showing you some of my pretty peonies. This is my favorite flower in my garden. I love everything about them, especially the scent. They remind me of the old tissue paper roses my sister and I used to make as kids.

My vintage Nancy Ann doll is trying to steal the show~LOL

This week I was supposed to show you my new teatime/cupcake guest bedroom but since I had internet problems I was not able to get the post ready. Next week be sure to stop back and see all the pinkness behind this door.

Thank you so much for stopping by, it was so nice to visit with you.

Have a wonderful week.

Blessings to ya, Shirl

Congratulations to CC, she is a very lucky person right now. I am sorry to hear of your ordeal, but am happy to see it's fixed and your son is alright. What a scare that would have been for any mother. Beautiful post today, I don't want to leave it. Very pretty colors and soft too. Happy Pink Saturday my friend, Char

I always look forward to your sweet vingettes, Shirl! The Nancy Ann doll is just adorable! And I so love the teapot that is holding the peonies! Beautiful!

Hi Shril,
I was wondering if everything was okay!! Sorry about your internet troubles...
Peonies are my favorite and when you mentioned paper flowers from childhood...I think that's why too!
Congrat's to the winner of your sweet bunny.
Happy Pink Saturday!
Deb :)

Roselle said...

Hi again Shirl. That is funny that you lived near LBI. Small world...that's where we are. Honestly, everyone here refers to "going to the beach" but when giving the locality of where we live, we all say the "shore". LOL
Anyway, have a great day.

Happy Pink Saturday Shirl, oh I love peonies too! Yours are beautiful, especially in your vignette with the doll.
Here's to a great week!
hugs, Vickie

Pearl said...

Beautiful flowers Shirl and all your pink lovelies. I hope your internet gets hooked up soon it must be terrible to not be able to communicate with your son. May God bless him this wonderful day!

Hi Shirl!
Congratulations to CC for winning your precious bunny!!
Its always something or other with the internet isn't it!
Its amazing how lost we are without it now these days . . . especially you not being able to hear from or contact your brave and handsome son!
I love all your pinkies but I think you know which one I like best and you didn't even mention it!! Cross stitch of course :-) What a sweet sentiment and I know you stitched it yourself!! So adorable and I like it as a door hanger too.
Have fun catching up on your blogging and Happy Pink Saturday on Sunday!
Hugs and Smiles,

CC said...

Hi Shirl...
I would be so happy dancing right now if I could. I loved this sweet bunny and his beautiful embroidery as soon as I saw him..and I am very lucky that he's coming to live with me. He can keep me company while a fractured pelvis heals.

I tried to email you, but was unable to make it work.
Hugs and thank you so much for offering such a sweet giveaway...

Congrats to sweet CC!! What super Pinks you have today! I just love Pink ;)
Have a great week!

Beverly said...

Happy Pink Saturday, dear Shirl. I know how frustrating it must have been, but the worst part had to be not to be in contact with your son. You all remain in my prayers.

Congratulations to CC. I know this sweet little bunny should make her feel better.

Your peonies are gorgeous, and I do believe Nancy Ann fits right in with all that beauty.

Kathy said...

Hello! Appreciate your Pink Saturday post! I understand internet frustrations! I will be praying for you and your son - appreciate his service.
Hope you have a marvelous week,

Celestina Marie Designs said...

Hi Shirl, Congrats to your winner of the bunny. She will love it as I love mine from you. It is darling!!
Sorry to hear you had internet troubles. I know how frustrating it can be when that happens. Glad things are better now. Your peonies are gorgeous. They do remind me too of the kleenex flowers we used to make as kids. We also made them from white trash bags and decorated our car when we got married. It was great, it could rain and nothing was ruined. LOL
Love your display with the gorgeous china. Looking forward to seeing behind the door. I know it will be wonderful.

Hope you are back in touch with your son. Prayers for him sweets.

Thank you for stopping by and your sweet comments. Have a great week.

Love to you, Celestina Marie
