~ Happy Pink Saturday ~
Now I know there is no pink in the photos but bear with me here. Way back in early summer, when Pink Saturday had her birthday, Barb of Dogmom Diva blog had a give away for that very special day. Gracie, the dalmation, picked my name (good dog!) and I WON! With the crazy hectic summer we have had I am just now telling you all about it and again thanking Barb for her "sew" special give-away. Since I won it on Pink Saturday I hope you will forgive me if I post on Pink Saturday. :) Barb's give-away was for a charming hand crafted apron she made from a fabric called Church Flowers. A delightful uptown print of lime green, blue, and white and she funned it up with big fat rickrack. But that package was filled with oh so much more. Time is getting so close for the wedding party and I am busily
Totally switching gears but still playing house I had to show you what I found two Saturdays ago on my treasure hunt. Can you stand it? I can't! Someone's grand daddy made this for his precious grand girls and someone else was selling it. I grabbed this thing so quick the seller's head was spinning faster than Linda Blair's of The Exorcist. This baby is huge, measuring over 3 feet across and almost as tall. Love that country front porch! And those shutters aren't painted on,..... they are wood appliques next to plexiglass windows. And it had tons of furniture with it too. Where's the PINK? As I was cleaning it up, I found layers of contact and wall papered walls, which effectively dated this amazing house. But for now I will leave as is because I love the pink cherries and blue berries of the kitchen paper. The builder even made a little wood shelf and wall phone. Don't tell anyone, but I sat there after cleaning and played with it for the longest kind of time. I can't wait to show the grand-girls when they come. Okay....don't slap me....but the cost you ask........$15.00 :)
Thank you Beverly of How Sweet the Sound for hosting our Pink Saturdays, a tradition that is so much fun. Click on her blog for more pink than you can shake a stick at. I will be out and about Saturday hunting for hidden treasures and will be by for a visit afterward. I need to find some people to live in that house. I want to thank each and every one of you who wished us well with your prayers and thoughts during the hurricane last weekend. We did lose power and then my computer went on the blink, I guess from the power surge, so I was unable to spend time with you but I will see you all this weekend. Have a great weekend. :) xoxoxo Oops...I almost forgot. Happy Labor Day.
