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

Today for my pink I have this pretty vintage needlepoint pillow that I purchased at a Flea Market years ago. I just love the sweet look of this kitties face, the back and cording are in a very soft velvet. I kept the same filling because it so soft and fluffy!

Here is my pillow in a small guest bedroom in my home, I'm planning to redo this bedroom in yellow and pink. Not sure if the pillow will fit in that look, might have to find a new place for it.

My dauther Jen of Jens Petal Palace painted this pumpkin for me several years ago. I love it and look forward to bringing it out every fall.

Above is a pretty little needleroll that I made for a blogging friend several years ago.

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

Happy Pink Saturday Shirl, it's always a treat for the eyes to visit you each week.
Your pillow is sweet and the cats face is just precious. I am sure it will be at home in any room.
The pumpkin from your daughter is also lovely. She is very talented at painting roses.
The roll is gorgeous. I love it, Char

Hi Shirl and Happy Pink Saturday...
Everything is so soft and your kitty pillow and why wouldn't it fit into pink and yellow? of my favorite color combinations...especially when the yellow is just a whisper yellow. I think Kitty will look right at home....your little cross stitch roll is just delightful and that pumpkin gorgeous!

Hi Shirl,
Oh I just love your pretty pinks. Jenns pumpkin is gorgeous. Love the kitty pillow. Looks so cozy soft. I know it will be perfect in your new room.

Love your new header and blog look. Always inspiring to see your wonderful handmade pretties.

How is your son and grandson doing? Hope well. I know you and Jenn miss them. My prayers continue for them both.
Hello to Jenn too.

Thank you for stopping by and your sweet comment. It is always so nice to see you. I think of you often and so sorry for lack of getting over more often. As you might know, it is really busy right now going into the holiday season. But I think of you and keep you and yours close in prayers.

Love to you,
Celestina Marie

Happy Pink Saturday, Shirl.

I love the combination of yellow and pink, and I know the room will look wonderful. I think the sweet kitty will still belong.

Hello Shirl,
I found your blog via a link for P.S. over at Bev's.
I know that a P.S. post should be commented right away but there's so many of us participants that I really couldn't make it to visit everyone.
what a cure pink pillow and OMgosh, your daughter is an artist. that pumpkin is as delightful as you cross-stitched needle roll.
so pleased having gotten you along my path of life
