Pink Saturday


Good morning Pinkies~

I had prepared my post well ahead of time because my mother took a fall the other day {Thursday} and broke her hip. She is in a lot of pain and has to have surgery. I am not sure what the next few days will bring, so I decided to get my pinks ready early. I would appreciate your prayers on her behalf!

This is one of my favourite hats, modeled by my toile bunny. As you can see, Bunny is propped up by a pink cushion on my pink flowered sofa.

I used this pink pillar candle wrapped with pink sheer ribbon to decorate the mantle for Easter.
This big ceramic planter with the pink flowers had once been home to a lovely floral topiary I had made. It now awaits something new. Not sure what just yet; maybe another topiary. We'll have to wait and see!Have a lovely Pink Saturday everyone and please drop by Beverly's at How Sweet the Sound to view lots more Pink.

Hi Sandi,

Happy "Pink Saturday" to you!! I've been away all week so had a lot of catch up reading to do on your blog. I love your pinks...especially that little birdhouse, since I'm a collector of birdhouses myself. :) I also have a pink hat.

Your cake "accident" on your other post turned out well. :) I made strawberries and cake just the other day too when I was having a sweet craving. LOL

And your post on books shows some of the same study books and Bibles that we have. We are surely "kindred spirits" Sandi. :)

Hope you have a Blessed weekend and hope to hear from you again real soon.

Happy Pink Saturday Sandi. I will add you and your mom to my prayer list. My mom had hip surgery a few years ago and her stubborness had her back to her old-self in no time. I pray that your mom's recovery is going to be the same. I know that with you and the Lord there with her, has her spirits up. Again, praying for the best and keep us posted as she progressess along.

Love, peace and continued blessings!
