Pink Saturday


Hello and welcome to my blog! It's another Pink Saturday
and participants from all over the world are gathering at Beverly's for this fun event. We love the colour pink, and would love it if you would visit Beverly at 'How Sweet the Sound' and join in the fun! She will make you feel most welcome.

Before I get to my pinks today, I have AN UPDATE ON MY MOTHER:
She is out of ICU and is now in a private room. She is still very uncomfortable from the sugery but has begun the healing process. Thank you so very much for your prayers everyone. God bless you!

My pinks today include a Giveaway I won a few weeks ago and a few other things.

So, here we go.......

I received this little box in the mail yesterday. I opened it up and found another little box inside! Don't you just love surprises?
And inside that little box was a darling little bird's nest and a scripture book mark.As you can see, the book mark has some pink on it with a pink ribbon. It reads, "Oh, give thanks to the Lord, for he is so good! For his lovingkindness is forever." Psalm 118:29 TLBThe nest itself was hand made by Barb of Treasures From the Heart http://treasuresfromtheheartgifts.blogspot.com/ and is adorned with three little eggs, a paper flower made of vintage sheet music, and a doilie. A tiny banner which reads 'Blessings' is also propped up in the nest. Isn't it delightful? Thank you Barb! Why not drop by and pay Barb a visit; she would love it if you did!
Next is a favourite pink mug.

I am going to have a cup of tea; or rather a mug of tea!
Would you care for some? I only have two of these mugs left; unfortunately the other two got broken. I also have these mugs. These were a set of four that a good friend of mine saw one day and said to himself, "Those look like Sandi. I think I'll get them for her birthday." And he did! I have had them since the mid-eighties!


Thanks for dropping by today. Please pop over to Beverly's and visit the other pinkies out in blogland. Just click on this link http://howsweetthesound.typepad.com/my_weblog/ or the Pink Saturday button on my sidebar. Have a pinkalicious day everyone!

Sandi, I'm so glad to hear that your mother is doing well . . . I'll continue to keep her in my prayers.

I just love the little bird's nest and what a wonderful idea to use sheet music to make a rose bed! Some people are so talented!

Love the mugs . . . I'd love a cup please! Have you tried the 'Hot Cinnamon Spice' tea from Barnes and Noble? It's wonderful . . . even my cockatoo Bijou loves it! LOL!!

Happy Pink Saturday,
Teresa the MiniMadWoman

What lovely gifts you received. I love the shade of pink on your cups. Very cozy to enjoy a hot drink on a chilly morning! Happy Pink Saturday to you! Continued healing for your Mama.

This is good news about you Mom. Having her transferred in a private room means everything is doing well and that she's stable. :-)

Congratulations on your win. The bible verse is a nice reminder to us all. And the nest has found a home just beside the birdhouse - how wonderful is that?

The mugs you friend gave you with white swirls is pretty. I would not have thought they were that long ago. LOL

(no pink post for me today. I'm just dropping by)
