Hello and welcome to Pink Saturday hosted by Beverly of How Sweet the Sound. If you go to visit her you can get a list of all the other participants. This week I went to visit a new blog that I have not been to yet as Beverly requested. I enjoyed my visit with Angela at A Mcinnis Artworks. What an adorable blog she has, I really enjoyed my visit there. Fabulous tutorials too! Thank you all so much for your kind wishes and prayers on my illness. Your all so sweet. I'm doing better day by day and enjoying my afternoons off now that I'm working part-time. I'm working on some quilts, I'll try and get some pics for next week since they have pink in them. Above I have a little pillow that I cross stitched and finished into a little pillow for spring decor. It just has a touch of pink but I thought you might like to see it anyway. Also below I have some pretty silk apple blossom sprays to share. While waiting for my real one's to bloom these will do fine. We are still getting snow here so my blossoms are not even close yet. LOL Waiting patiently for them, I love bringing them in the house, their scent is heavenly! Some closeups.

I'm lovin' my new Paula Dean pots and I thought I'd share of pic of them with you. I'm trying to collect softer color utensils for my kitchen so they blend better with my jadeite. Still looking for a soft pink flatware, no luck with that yet.

Thank you so much for stopping by! I'm looking forward to visiting you all to see your pink!

Have a wonderful and blessed week!

Your pillow is very sweet and so charming! Wonderful job! I wish we had apple blossom trees blooming, too. They are SO pretty. Your branches look so real! And I love your new cookware, the color is really nice!

Hope you have a wonderful weekend, Shirl!

Oh sweetie, your pillow is just lovely. I think April showers bring May flowers and that says it all. Perfect for this month. Of course, your blooms are very pretty and would brighten anyone's day.
Happy Pink Saturday to you. I am happy to hear that you are feeling better and not working so hard anymore. Char

So glad that you are doing better, Shirl ... great news. Your pillow is gorgeous & we are in the midst of apple blossoms right now. Every one is getting Paula Dean cookware ... but it isn't in pink yet ... hmmmm, may have to give her another call.

Hi Shirl,
I am sorry to hear you have been sick but feeling better now. Glad you are working part time. I bet you are getting some fun creating time in.
I too have been sick and was in the hospital 4 days last month.
LOVE your pillow. It is the most cottage sweet. Apple blossoms have always been a favorite of mine and yours look so real.

I just adore those pans too and was real tempted to get a set too. The look amazing in your kitchen.

I hope you continue to feel good and enjoying some warmer days and Spring time.
Love your header too.
Hellos to Jenn and all the best to your son and grandson.

Hugs and blessings,
Celestina Marie
