Pink Saturday Purge

One of my very talented blogging friends, Dana, recently decided to clean out her artist studio and had a purge give-away. Silly me, I thought she was sending those of us that wanted it, the bits and pieces leftover from her knitting, sewing and paper projects she no longer had a use for. I was one of those who was jumping up and down, waving my hand excitedly and saying "ooh-ooh-ooooh", just like the class clown in Kotter's class, Arnold Horschack, " yes, yes, send me some". Wellllll.....the very neatly wrapped package with a little kitty kat (Daisy) stamped on the front, arrived the other day. I waited a few days before opening up, waiting for the right moment to savor the colorful bits and pieces I knew this precious package contained. Boy, oh boy, did I get the shock of the week. No bits and pieces in this box, no ma'am. It was filled with a cornucopia of delights. She had sent some of the most gorgeous hand crafted note cards I had ever seen, the most intricate little origami notebook, bookmark, a beautiful little bangled velvet pouch. Pictured below is also an exquisite pink marbled silk scarf that she marbled herself, (I can't imagine that process!) and a darling hand bound bird's nest journal she made.....and they're PINK. I wonder how she knew I liked pink? (insert big grin here) I tell you the girl is a true artist. I have encouraged her to sell her stuff on the infamous ET place or maybe the new frou frou marketplace that has a grand opening in February. I hope she will take me up on this, as her work is not to be missed. Visit her blog too, A Cat in my Lap. She and her kitty, Daisy, give tutorials on fun things to make, post to make you think, post to make you laugh and is just a pleasure to read. Love ya' Dana. And thank you!





And if you are in the mood for more pretty pink please visit our Beverly's blog. She's got a list of the best pinkness around. P.S. I must apologize to you all. Most Saturdays I am on the road treasure hunting so I don't get to most blogs until Sunday but I WILL be there. :)

I am speechless so to speak! The beauty of that scarf is so breath taking. That woman does need to sell those. She truly is talented. Plus the journal too!
You truly are blessed to have a friend send you such treasured & precious items as these. Plus the best thing of all is that they were hand-made and came from the heart. Now that is truly wonderful!
Have a blessed Pink Saturday.

LYNN,
HAPPY PINK SATURDAY.
YOUR TREASURES ARE BEAUTIFUL. WHAT A TALENTED FRIEND.
THIS IS MY FIRST PINK SATURDAY.
I LOVE YOUR POST WHERE YOU FOUND OUT YOUR ANGEL WAS PAPER MAChE...I LOVED HOW SHE TURNED OUT THOUGH...YOU COULD GET SOMEONE TO PAINT YOU ROSES SAY ON AN OVEL BOARD AND THEN ATTACH HER TO THAT...IT COULD HAVE SOME PHRASE PAINTED ALSO BECAUSE SHE LOOKS LIKE SHE WAS MADE THAT WAY. I ALSO LOVE THE OTHER ANGELS WITH COLOR ON THEM.
BLESSINGS
debbie

Bebe said...

Hi Lynn!
Just thought I'd come over and say hi! Those are some wonderful goodies that your friend sent! I love the little sweet bird on the nest ~ too cute!! I'm still giggling about your previous post on the antique treasure-hunting! You are like me, in that your just can't resist the hunt! I have absolutely no room for anything, but does that stop me from a garage sale or antique shop?? noooooooo! It is the thrill of what you could find today that is so intriquing! Take care and stay warm, my friend!
Hugs, Bebe :)

KarenHarveyCox said...

Lynn, what a gorgeous giveaway. I followed your advice and I meandered over to see her blog. I was fascinated, I poked around a bit, marked her blog so I could follow it, and remembered. I didn't leave a comment. I am enjoying blogland while superbowl is playing in several places in my home tonight. Me, I'm getting lost in Blogland.
Happy Sunday.
Karen
