Hello and welcome to another Pink Saturday hosted by Beverly of How Sweet the Sound!

I hope you all had a nice 4th of July. Ours was very nice, we cooked out on the grill and our kids and grandkids stopped by. It was a very nice and relaxing weekend.

Today for my pink I have these pretty pink roses that I picked up in Walmart. I can not get over how real they look. They are perfect for this pretty vintage vase that I purchased last week at an Antique Mall. You never know where you will find something pretty and pink! LOL

Next I have this pretty plate (below), a pretty thrift store find for 25 cents. I love it, the center flowers are worn off so I use it on my craft table to hold supplies. I could not get over how pretty the border is on this plate. I've never seen anything like this before.

Look what I found at Rite aid, a pretty pink tape measure. How cute!

Lovin my July Gooseberry Patch calendar.

My sewing room calendar is very pretty too this month.

Thank you so much for stopping by it was great to visit with you. Have a wonderful week!

Hugs, Shirl

I like how you put notions and pretty things in your dish. I do that too. I don't sew but I like sewing notions.

Those pink roses do look real and I would have thought they were till I read on. The vase is a gorgeous find.
The plate is beautiful and that border is really unique.

Hi Shirl! Your plate full of pink sewing goodies made me want to run to my sewing area and play! I was looking through your past pink posts and was delighted to find the photo of your kitties. Your well looks so pretty and the kitties made me smile. I hope you and your family are all well. Hugs, Terri
