Pink Saturday - Spiritual Sundays Miracle Weekend Party

It's A Miracle Makeover Weekend

Hello friends and welcome to another Miracle Makeover Weekend with Kelee Katillac, Pink Saturday,  Spiritual Sundays, and Country Wings in Phoenix.

It is a pleasure to participate in these parties especially this weekend as it is for a very good cause!
Please go to these links to watch a video and meet the Grady Bunch. This is a story about 8 year old Charlie Grady who has brain tumors. His is a heart warming story. When he was five years old, "Charlie Santa," undergoing chemotherapy himself, began leading a toy drive to help other kids with cancer have a happier holiday.

It is sure to tug at your heartstrings! Every comment left on any one of these blogs earns one dollar towards Friends of Kids With Cancer.

My Pink Saturday/Spiritual Sundays offering this week is a combination of the two parties. I have posted this with a very thankful heart to God and my family. I have had two cancer scares myself and both turned out to be benign. The most recent one was just a few weeks ago.

Now for some pink!
I have some eye candy which was found while visiting my relatives in New Brunswick, Canada. My cousin and I had gone junking and at one place she found these. There were two of each.

Two pink depression glass bowls and two little goblets. The goblets are etched; very sweet! Can you see the etching? The goblets also have a gentle green pedestal.

Do you see the pink floral dishes on which the bowl and goblet are sitting?

My cousin gave me these dishes from her collection! She collects blue china and I collect pink/red. So, out of the goodness of her heart, she gave me these three dinner plates, three salad plates, three bread and butter plates, and three teacups. The pattern is Victorian Chintz made by Burleigh Staffordshire England. Aren't they pretty?

She also gave me the two pink depression glass bowls and goblets because she thought that I would like them. Wasn't that darling of her? My cousin has a heart of gold! Thank you, Val!

While shopping with my cousin, I also came across this pretty white footed dish. Isn't it sweet?

I love the little birdie and the basket weave pattern on it. I have any number of uses for it but today, I am floating my pink roses for Pink Saturday in it.

Next to the footed dish, is a pretty peachy-pink teacup which my hubby gifted me with a while ago. It is vintage and has beautiful posies of every hue on the inside of the cup, including pink!

Have you ever thought about the process a teacup has to go through to look beautiful? I have never made a china teacup but I have made ceramic pieces before. It is quite a long process but I'll give you the shorter version...

A teacup starts out as a piece of clay which the potter moulds in his hands. He designs it, shapes it, chooses the artwork, and fires it. When the teacup comes out of the oven, it is finished and ready to be used. The potter looks at his work and admires it. It is his treasure which he has created and in which he is very pleased.

Our lives are like the teacup. We too are made of clay, designed and moulded by our Creator who loves us. Every one of us goes through trials and times of  testing, or firing. When the firing is finished, we are beautiful, just like the teacup and hopefully, stronger because of the trial we have endured. He has designed us on purpose and for His glory.

"It's in Christ that we find out who we are and what we are living for. Long before we first heard of Him and got our hopes up, He had His eye on us, had designs on us for glorious living, part of the over-all purpose He is working out in everything and everyone." ~  Ephesians 1: 11-12 {The Message}

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I hope you liked what you see; a little pink eye candy as well as some food for thought. Thank you to all the ladies who have joined together this weekend to make it special for Charlie and others like him. God bless you all and be sure to visit the links above and leave a comment to earn dollars for Friends of Kids With Cancer. Wishing you all a delightful weekend.
