Pink Saturday

Happy Pink Saturday bloggerettes! Once again, Beverly has brought all her pinkies together from all over the world to share their pinks.

What is it about the colour pink that gets our hearts going pitter patter! Well, speaking for myself, I find it to be a very soothing colour. It's soft, feminine, and dreamy.
Pink is the colour of universal love. It is a quiet colour. A pink carnation means, "I will never forget you."

I can't imagine a world without pink, can you?

Imagine a sunrise or a sunset without a pink sky...this photo was taken on our fair Island.

...or a garden without pink roses or pink hydrangeas.

These pink tulips I picked up at the grocery store for $3 a bundle. Aren't they pretty?

And there is no pink more precious than this pink; my little granddaughter! Jenna-Lynn is wearing her pink too! She is seven weeks old and still weighs only seven pounds. She's a tiny little girl and still isn't quite fitting into her newborn sleepers!

I apologize for showing you yet another picture of her, but I can't help myself! She is so sweet and she is my first granddaughter; the first girl to be born into our family after my three sons and four grandsons; seven darling boys! I'm a proud Nanny so I have bragging rights!

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you all have a wonderful pink weekend. Be sure to visit Beverly and all her participants ~

Please join me on Monday for my Tea Time Tuesday party when I will be celebrating Tea Time Tuesday's first Anniversary/Birthday.

Sharing from my heart~ Sandi


  1. What a lovely little princess! I have 4 grandsons and only one Granddaughter so I know how you feel! Our Grandchildren are such a joy aren't they? I love your blog and I agree wholeheartedly about the color of pink!!

  2. Hi Sandi
    Yes, our world is much prettier with all the shades of pink - my favourite flower colour.
    Your little pink bundle is so tiny and sweet - keep bragging!

  3. Hello Sandi,
    Jeanny-Lynn is the sweetest little pink I have ever seen. You definately have bragging rights and we enjoy that, too! Your pink post make me smile.
    Have a wonderful weekend.
    Greetings, Johanna

  4. I have a feeling that I've just seen my favorite pink for this Pink Saturday. What a sweet little baby your granddaughter is! I love when babies sleep with their arms out like that, like they don't have a care in the world!
    Happy PS!




  6. Great sunset, lovin' your tulips and what a little cutie-enjoy every minute:@)

  7. I just died and went to heaven when my eyes fell upon your Granddaughter's picture. I thought the sunset was pretty until I scrolled down and there was perfection.

    Oh blessings to you my friend.

  8. Dear Sandi:
    I love your PS post. I really love pink carnations. I had no idea what they meant!
    DO NOT apologize for posting and bragging about that sweet little grand daughter of yours. She is too precious. Keep the pics coming!
    Happy PS

  9. Hi Sandi,
    I would show her off as much as possible, she is a pink bundle of joy. Adorable and oh so loveable.

    Happy Pink Saturday sweet friend.


  10. Wonderful post for Pink Saturday Sandi. Jenna-Lynn is adorable, you are a lucky Nanny. Take care and Happy Pink Saturday.

  11. I was so happy when my first grandchild was a girl. I love the little boys, too, but there is something about a pink bundle. :)

    Now there are two boys and three girls.

  12. I am with you, pink is soothing and feminine and just plain pretty...all your pinks are soooo pretty, but the pink that takes the cake is your little Jenny-Lynn! What a doll! Don't stop showing her off to us!

  13. She is just a real sweetie! Very pretty baby. You definitely have the right to brag! :0)

    Thanks so much for visiting my PSaturday post. Have a great weekend!

  14. Now this post is full of true pink perfection! Such a lovely little miss.

    We did a whole flea market booth of pink accents.
    Come take a peek:

    Have a wonderful weekend!

  15. Love your pinks, especially Jenna-Lynn! Feel free to continue showing pics of her - they are delightful!
    Hugs and blessings, Beth

  16. Such an adorable little sweetheart. Show her off as much as you want. Happy Pink Saturday!

  17. Grandmas are supposed to be proud and show off their grandbabies, so no worries about that.

    Funny that you talked about loving pink. When I was a child, I hated pink. I clearly remember when I was 11 or 12 and getting into a verbal disagreement with my mom because she wanted to buy me a pastel pink shirt and I was NOT a pastel pink girl. Our fight was so bad the sales girl asked if we were okay. That's funny now, especially since I buy everything pink as an adult. Yet obviously it wasn't so funny then.

    Now with your granddaughter, you'll hopefully have someone to share your love of pink with!

  18. Awww I think you've earned some bragging rights for your precious granddaughter! Congrats. Oh I just love those pink tulips - my absolute favorite flower!

    Happy PS,

  19. I would say that is one precious bundle of pink. Congratulations. Many Happy Pink Days ahead. ginger

  20. Your little grand girl is ADORABLE!!! I hope you get to hold her soon! You are lucky to have so many grands....I have two!

    My grand girl ( 4 1/2) has always called me Nana....just recently, she's been calling me Nanny! I grinned when I saw you use that term. I love being a Nanny, too!

    Have a great Pink Saturday!!
