Hello and welcome to another Pink Saturday hosted by our sweet Beverly of How Sweet the Sound.
I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving. Mine was fabulous. My children and grandsons came for dinner. Our grandson (our sailor) is home on a four day leave. It's so nice to have him and our son Bob home this year for Thanksgiving and Christmas. Last year my son was in Afghanistan so this year is really great for us.

This pretty little candle holder below I picked up at our local thrift store for a quarter. It's so pretty I was thrilled with this find!

It seems hard to believe it's just a month away from Christmas. I've already started getting my Christmas boxes out. Everyday I'll put a few more things out. I'm not going to put our big tree up again this year our newest dog is still a little puppy crazy and I know if the cats knock an ornament off she will think it's hers. If the cats knock down a book or magazine Lady thinks it's fair game and rips them up. A real bummer because I love my books! LOL
Thank you so much for stopping by, it was really nice to visit with you. Have a wonderful week.
Hugs, Shirl

Hello friends, I'm linking up with Smilin Sally because I have some blue on this post that I'd like to share with you. I also wanted to wish you all and wonderful and blessed Thanksgiving. I usually work on Monday's and don't get a chance to link up with Sally. Our schools in WV close for the week so I thought it was a great chance to visit all my Blue Monday friends.

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

First I have a few close ups of a  little table mat that I embroidered this past year. It's done in pearl cotton in Brazilian emboridery then made into a little quilt. My friend Mary from "Here's Home" had seen it in one of my pics and wanted to see a close up of it. I will try to get some better pics this week for you Mary. I found these in my files but they really do not do it justice. It's all done by hand. Thank you Mary for admiring it!

Another little Calico Kitten that I picked up in an Antique Shop in Ohio Amish Country for $2.00.

Another Calico Kitten, I thought it was so cute with the gift of kitty food for her friend. LOL A touch of blue here!

Next it's Grandma's bragging time.
My two youngest grandson's and their dates for their homecoming dance in September.
Marcus is on the left, he is a senior and Mike on the right is a sophmore.
I just had to share the girls pretty blue dresses with my Blue Monday friends!

 We are so proud of our handsome grandsons and enjoy watching them grow up into young men.

Next is our grandson (our sailor) with his younger brother on his back. They are always clowning around like this. We love them so much! "He ain't heavy, he's my brother"

I snapped these pictures of our grandson Joey (our sailor) in his Mustang convertable that he bought when his was stationed in California, had it shippped home to his new base in Beaufort, SC. We love seeing him coming in and out of the farm when he's home on leave. He's enjoying his time with his brother's and friends. He will be home again for Thanksgiving, we love that he's stationed on the east coast and can get home when he has a long weekend. Ed and I are going to go to Beaufort this summer and spend some time with him. He and Ed both love to fish and I love to relax, read and embroider so we will have a great time. Then seafood restaurents and walking on the beach in the evening.

A touch of pink on the plate below, my husbands Uncle gave me this when we were in NJ. I thought it was so pretty.

A little creamer that I picked up in a thrift store for a quarter.

Thank you so much for stopping by it was so nice to visit with you. I'm looking forward to my visits with you! Have a wonderful week and have a wonderful and Blessed Thanksgiving!
Hugs, Shirl

PINK SATURDAY Nov. 12, 2011

 Hello and Happy Pink Saturday. Thank you Beverly for hosting this fun event.
Today I have a pretty vintage plate that I purchased while my husband and I were at Ohio Amish Country this fall.

  This Veteran's Day, we honor those who have so bravely served this country.  I would like to thank my son and grandson for serving our country. I hope you all had a wonderful Veterans Day! I'm enjoying a 3 day weekend. My grandson(our sailor) is home for a 4 day leave. So happy to be able to see him more often now that he is stationed in Beaufort, SC.

Next for a little touch of pink I have a few Calico Kittens that I picked up at an antique store for only $2.00 each. A great find.

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

Pink Saturday Nov. 5, 2011

Hello and welcome to Pink Saturday hosted by Beverly of How Sweet the Sound. It's nice to be back posting again, and it was to visit those that I was able to. Not enough hours in a day for fun things.

Well I'm having a time with this new format with blogger. My pics are all out of order and I can't seem to move them how I want them so we'll just have go as they are.

The fist pic (above) is of a  vintage silhouette that I bought on vacation. I started collecting them many years ago and have a nice collection in my living room now. I thought this one was so sweet.

The picture above is a cute little quick phone magnet guide for the fridge. I thought the design was so cute! Below are some cute little Amish note cards that I picked up while vacationing in Ohio Amish Country this fall.

I love cute little note pads and the next two are just adorable.

Here's the out of order pic of the silhouette.

Below is the second silhouette that I bought at the same time as the previous one.

I thought this little faux cupcake was adorable, they only had one left so I bought it and I am going to try a make some more myself. Just collecting the supplies now.

A sweet little Cherished Teddy that I got at an antique mall while on vacation. Could not resist her.

Well that's it for all my pinkness this week. Thank you so much for stopping by, it was nice to visit with you. Have a wonderful week.
Hugs, Shirl
