Outdoor Wednesday Blooms

For some of the best displays of Outdoor Wednesday you will see anywhere, go to http:asoutherndaydreamer.blogspot.com. Susan loves company.

Some of the beauties my yard provided this year.

Pay It Forward

One of my blogging friends all the way from the United Kingdom honored me with this award. Now, that was truly a very big surprise! This special lady is Thisisme a "Southhamsdarling". Please take the time to visit her at http://southhamsdarling.blogspot.com. You will be very pleasantly surprised. Also, she had added my button to her sidebar which gave me a big happy face.

Thank you Thisisme so very much. You made my day in a very nice way. More people need to share kindness all over the world.

Another good thing about this award, not a lot of rules. Only need to pass on to five others. This is not something I enjoy doing. All my blogging friends are worthy of any award. To comply with the rules, I am passing this on to:

1. Rebecca - "It's A Shabby Pink World".
2. Kathy - "A Delightful Life".
3. Pamela - "Backwood Cottage".
4. Susan - "Blackberry Creek Home Arts"
5. Ann - "A Sentimental Life"

Pink Saturday is Three Years Old

Three years ago today Pink Saturday was born. Beverly, the mother of this great blog, has kept us entertained well. She is throwing a big birthday celebration and everyone is invited. She is located at http://howsweetthesound.typepad.com/my_weblog.

I rented this big,long, pink limousine so I would arrive in style.

This is Beverly's home where all this activity is taking place.

Beverly has many friends, but this lady stands out among the crowd.

Her study/office where she planned and made the arrangements for this birthday party.

Beverly's lovely new kitchen were all the great refreshments were prepared for this special event.

She is really treating us with this pretty table setting. If you notice, she is using her Mayfair Depression Glasses. Do be careful with them as they are one of her treasured possessions.
This is another pink treasure from her home.
After refreshments, we can all go outside and enjoy the beauty of her rose garden.

We are not the only ones impressed with Beverly and her Pink Saturday. In 2010, "Artful Blogging" magazine honored her with a feature. It was a wonderful article that even mentioned some of the her Pink Saturday participates.

My first Pink Saturday participation was July 4, 2009. I was a new kid on the blog. Only had a blog for three months. Did not know or understand very much about anything let alone Pink Saturday. Thank you Beverly for letting me be a part of your great blog world. I have had a Pink blast. I truly enjoyed participating each week, and getting to know you and so many great people.

Vintage Bedding

It is another great day to spend with Coloradolady and her Vintage Thingies Take time and visit her http://coloradolady.blogspot.com. and see what her friends have to share.
Thia is one of my many vintage quilts. I have had it so long I cannot recall where I go it.

These are two pillow cases I had the opportunity to get from my sister-in-law's estate. I have no idea why she selected these days for them. The cotton fabric she used is so soft.

Let's Play REDnesday

No better way to get past "hump day" than visiting Sue on REDnesday. She would love having you drop by at http://suelovescherries.blogspot.com.

If bowling is not your game, we can try
playing a round of golf. This tournament took place this week. For the first time, they had a special day for children. My great grandson, Layton, attended. They had this set up to look like the real thing. He really enjoyed it as he is taking golf lessons. And, doing quite well.
We could join these two happy, "snaggel-tooth" faces for a little baseball. This is Layton and his best friend Wyatt.

What to Wear for Pink Saturday's Birthday

Just one more week until the big three year celebration for Pink Saturday. Beverly, our hostess, invites you to join her at http://howsweetthesound.typepad.com/my_weblog for this very special occasion.

While I was wondering through an antique mall, I overheard these two chatting about attending the Three Year Birthday party. She had decided to wear this pretty dress with touches of pink. He selected a green suit with a pink bow tie. She informed him not to forget to bring Beverly a pink rose.

I told them they could pick one from my bush if they forgot.

I found a delightful lady's blog this week. We have a few things in common. She is a big country music fan and loves Nashville. Jackie, at http://jackiecarl.blogspot.com. calls her blog "NaSHVilLeNuT". She is someone you will be happy to meet.
