This Week's Pinks: Pink Saturday
Hello and Happy Saturday! Please join me for Pink Saturday with Beverly at How Sweet the Sound. There are lots of great pinks out there to enjoy in Bloggyland today!
You may remember that a few weeks ago (ok, maybe it was a couple months ago...I don't remember!) I posted a picture of my daughter, Lynzie, and her doll wearing the shawl that Lynzie had sewn for her. (You can find that one here) Well, today I'd like to show off the shawl she made for the doll's best friend!
This is Elizabeth Cole of the American Girl Doll Collection. She was Lynzie's first American Girl doll.
She's awfully proud...and I'm proud of her!
Another subject I've been featuring lately is BookCrossing. You can click the link in my "labels" list to the right if you're not familiar with that. Here are a couple more packages that I've received from friends for our annual gift exchange. This is a package that I received today from BookCrosser miumaumou of Finland:
She sent a pretty pink silk scarf, a couple of bookmarks (one is pink), some Celtic stickers, a postcard and two candy bars...and one of THOSE is pink--awesome, eh?
A couple days ago I received this package from BookCrosser Ossiefry of Portugal:
She sent a kitty card (pink), some BookCrossing book labels, a BIG chocolate mint candy bar (pink again!), some tea, and a handmade pink flower keychain! So sweet!
Every now and then, I like to feature Pink bloggers that I am extraordinarily impressed with! This week, I'd like to introduce you to two. First is Roselle from Seaside Rose Creations. She makes the most gorgeous things and sells them in her Etsy store! I was particularly drawn to this beautiful set of salt shakers that she "shabbied up" so prettily! She found them all rusted at Goodwill and look at them now!
Be sure and stop by her blog, as well as her Etsy store, to see her talent!
Secondly is Lisa from Belles Roses Romantiques who made these really cute pumpkins:
What I especially love about this display (aside from the glitter and general romance of it all) is the little candy corns she made from clay...how sweet is that!! Please visit Lisa at her blog to see more of her creativity.
Hope everyone has a great Pink Saturday!!
