Pink Saturday/First,Fifth,Forever

Since the 5th of March falls on Saturday, I will be sharing two different post again.

Beverly's Pink Saturday is my regular feature. She is the fine hostess of the best pink showings around. You can check her show out at

An old pink vase that I have managed to keep. Sorry, I did not press the pink trimmed tablecloth too well.

I had a busy card month. I sent out the following cards this past month:
A Birthday card, Sympathy card, a Valentine, Thinking of You card, and a Thank You. Each was sent with a personal message. This is the Thank You I sent to the owner of a restaurant that my sister and I had breakfast. Instead of accepting our money, he wished us "Happy Valentine Ladies". That is rare now days. We greatly appreciated his kindness and thoughtfulness. The Coloradolady is the hostess for this special First.Fifth,Forever day.

Your vase is just so pretty. It's very victorian and vintage looking and I love that.
Your card is as sweet as can be.

What a pretty boot vase! I love sending and receiving cards and I've been doing it for as long as I can remember. This sounds like a nice meme. Happy Pink Saturday, LV! Hope you have a wonderful weekend.

LV, I still love to send's such a nice little surprise for the person getting it in the mail becuase who expects cards anymore?

The owner of that restaurant was very kind, and it was good of you to remember his kindness with the card. People like the two of you make this a much better world.

Did you take the butterfly picture?? It is amazing!! I looked up butterflies last year to find one that is pink for my granddaughter. I could only find ONE that had any pink in it at all!! And this is a different one! Where was this, do you know what it is?

I really enjoyed reading your post. That butterfly is super, and I love your tablecloth in all its natural glory!

I love your vase. The butterfly is wonderful, wish we had those here.
The card you sent to the man who paid for your lunch is so cute. I'm sure he smiled all day when he got it.
Have a great weekend and don't do too much!

Happy Pink Saturday LV, Love your vase and your cards. Have a wonderful week! Hugs, Linda

Eileen said...

Your vase is so, so pretty. And I love the thank you cards. I was brought up to always send thank you cards and I'm always surprised by the number of people who don't. I feel every time I come across one who does, I've found a kindred spirit.

Julia said...

Email's good, even Facebook, but nothing beats good old fashioned snail mail!

How lovely of the owner to be such a gentleman. I'll bet that made you feel good. What a gorgeous vase! And I love the tablecloth.

Jeanne said...

Hello LV, your pink shoe vase is darling. The flowers in the shoe are so sweet. A real treasure.

Sending cards is the perfect thing to make someone smile. Personal cards are almost a thing of the past. Good for you. I will have to check Suzanne's blog.

Happy PS.
Hugs, Jeanne

Hi LV,

I love the pink shoe vase ... it is so pretty and dainty.

I bet that the man at the restaurant was so touched by your card, as well as the other folks that you sent cards to.

Have a wonderful week, and God bless you!

Happy Belated Pink Saturday-you're vase is lovely. I'm sure you're happy you saved it. The tablecloth dosen't look wrinkled to me.

Beverly said...

Happy Pink Saturday, dear LaVoice. I love this pretty pink vase. It reminds me of one that belonged to one of my aunts.

Your Valentine's breakfast warms my heart. It was so kind of the owner to share the love in his heart.♥
