Pink Saturday~ Happy Valentines Day

Happy Pink Saturday & Happy Valentines Day to all my bloggy friends!

A vintage pink Valentine for you!

Hi everyone and can you believe that February is just about half over? Love seeing the Winter months slip by, don't you?

Today's pink post is being centered around Valentines Day. But before I get to that, I would like to share a Giveaway I won from Martha @ Martha's Favorites-

It came in a box filled with pink styrofoam pebbles and a sweet card accompanied it. Isn't this the cutest card? Kittens in a teacup...and pink roses! There is some glitter on the card but the camera didn't pick it up.

I opened up the box and this is what I found....a lovely three-footed teacup and a little bit of bling! Pink roses and a necklace with pink stones in it. Love the rosebud inside the teacup!

Here I have it sitting in the sunlight, can you see the iridescence on the teacup? Love it!

Thank you, Martha, my dear friend! You can visit Martha at her blog and even check out her TeaCup Tuesday party which she hosts every week.

Would you care for a cup of tea in my Valentine teacup? Pink and red hearts make for a perfect Valentine's cup of tea or coffee!

Now I'm going to share with you my Valentine tree. Last year I had a red tree and this year I decided to do a pink one. I had this tree originally decorated for my little granddaughter for Christmas. I took off the Christmas ornies and replaced them with glittery hearts and spheres. I left on the bows, glittery birdies, and added romantic cards. I left the little fairy on too because she is too cute to take off.

I got a sparkly valentine banner at Michaels for half price and cut it up. I glued ribbon to the backs of the hearts and glued the spheres so they would hang on the tree. Then I took some old greeting cards and cut them into heart shapes and hung them with ribbon. You cannot tell from the photo but some of the cards have glitter on them. An old pink lace curtain is arranged around the base of the tree and a little cherub I made years ago, daydreams beneath the tree as if floating on a pink cloud.

Well, that's my Valentines Pink Saturday offering. Hope you enjoyed it and now please visit Beverly ~ and her pinkies to see what they all have to share with you.

I invite you all to come back on Valentines Day for my Valentines Day Tea Time Tuesday when I will be announcing the winner of my Tea Time Tuesday Anniversary Giveaway!

Sharing from my heart~ Sandi
