Sugar and Spice and All things Nice for Pink Saturday

Welcome to Pink Saturday....

I was away last weekend so I didn't get to participate in the Pink Party which Beverly hosts every week. Today, I'm going to share some pretties from around my home and in my heart.

My sweet angel on top of my Christmas tree.

A pretty teacup looking all Christmasy.

Many of my tree ornaments hold sentimental value such as this little rocking horse which my middle son gifted me with when he was 9 years old.

 This lace ball trimmed with a rose and berries came from a very good friend.

This Limoges ornament was a gift from my mother. See the little butterfly on top?

My mantel in the daytime. Fairy lights, mercury glass votives, pink balls, pinecones, and glittery pink magnolias make up this mantel display.

Mantel at nighttime.

Closeup of some of the decorations...

My white tree all decorated in pink topped off with my little Christmas fairy.

A little wreath I made for the front of the aqua chest in the living room.

Tea and cookies anyone?

This little lady walking her doggy stands beneath the tree every Christmas; a gift from my middle son and his wife.

Now for the angel in my heart....Jenna-Lynn was 1 year old this past Sunday. She's all dressed up in her red polka dot dress and matching hair bow to celebrate at her birthday party. Notice her red cheeks? More toofies are on the way in!

Eating her birthday cake...

Jenna-Lynn smiling big with her birthday dollie.

A kiss for dollie...Isn't she precious?

Here she is with her rocking horse bank that she received from her Nanny {moi} and Papa.

Thank you so much for coming by for a visit today. I am delighted you were here and I wish you all a very Merry Christmas!

    Your Lil one is sweet! They sure grow up fast. Have to enjoy them while you can.

    God bless and have a delightful Holiday Season,

  3. Like you I recall the stories of many of our ornaments, and who gave them to us. I think our angel tree topper is the same as yours. Your house is ready!

  4. Your home is beautiful, and your granddaughter is so sweet, and looks like she was having a very happy time on her birthday.

  5. Jenna-Lynn is just adorable. It's amazing that a year has gone by already :) :) She's a precious gift ;)

    I just love all your pinks, especially the pink angel :) :) Love and hugs from the ocean shores of California, Heather :)

  6. Sweet dollies abound! May you and your family have a blessed Christmas season this year.♥♫

  7. What a cute real little angel you have. Christmas Blessings to you.

  8. Did a whole really go by? I remember her first pictures and now she is one!
    Your house looks exquisite, as always. I fell in love with the rosy teacup with the pink glittered pear!

    I know how hard it is without family at Christmas...Our closest is almost 600 miles away so that tells you have far the rest are. I miss the kids or grands rushing down Christmas morning.

Looks like you're enjoying the season. Happy Pink Saturday! I'm pinking by 4's since my link is #104 - glad I got to stop by and say hi. Thanks, Jenn

  15. She's adorable! Love those cheeks. Your home looks beautiful, especially the mantle and the little white tree. Happy Pink and have a great weekend!

  16. Oh Sandi, such a lovely post. I love the sweet angel on top of your tree. The pretty color of the teacup and what treasures in the ornaments from your family members. I love little lights and the fairy lights on your mantle are so pretty. What a beautiful gift, the doll from your son and DIL. Your darling Jenna Lynn is adorable and I know you look forward to a blessed Christmas.
