Pink Saturday

Hello pinkie friends and welcome to another wonderful Pink Saturday weekend with our hostess Beverly ~

Hubby and I are on vacation and I didn't think I would be posting this weekend but I just learned how to make a collage and I'm so excited that I had to share this first attempt with you! Hope you like it...

All of these photos are from my Tea Time Tuesday post this past week except for the one of the hand-painted bunny. He's extra; a gift from Celestina Marie @ Celestina Marie Designs ~
I had won him in her Giveaway at Easter time. Isn't he sweet snuggled up to my roses? I leave him out year round because he's just too cute to tuck away. He always brings a smile to my face. If you look at him closely, he looks very content and I think he's hiding a wonderful secret!

Most of you will recognize the Lavender Rose pattern by Royal Albert, with the beautiful pink roses sprinkled upon the white china. They were my mother's which she has handed down to me. The tablecloth beneath the white lace topper is also pink.

Before I go, I have to share the most recent picture of my baby doll, Jenna-Lynn who is seven months old. She has a pink bunny on her t-shirt and she is wearing a hand knit sweater that someone's grandma knit for her. Using the same program as the collage above, I added the frame and her name.

Thanks for stopping by and have a lovely pink weekend everyone!
