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.

Hi LV! Thanks for the interesting blog this week. I so enjoy Pink Saturdays, Beverly, and and making friends like you! Miles of learning to go, Sunny109

Rita said...

LV what a beautiful tribute you have done for our friend Beverly and all her hard work on Pink Saturday.

This was a delightful post.

I also want to thank you for all the visits you make to my humble site. I do appreciate all who visit even if time does not always allow me to return the visit right away.

Your comment to my post about my cousins pet squirrel was right on. Just minutes after taking that shot "Duke" jump on the girls grandfather and drew blood from several bites on his hand. Not a wise move to allow the children to play with it now that it is big enough to be let go.

Loretta said...

Wow! This is such a fantastic post! I can't believe you're 81. How wonderful. Thanks for stopping by my blog. Have a great weekend!

Olive Tree said...

How hard was it to find a pink limo, I wonder? Gosh, looks like y'all had a wonderful party there. Glad I could join in with you, even though not physically but in spirit. Happy Pink Saturday, happy birthday celebration, and have a wonderful, long, Memorial Day weekend.

Elsileg said...

Hola: me encanto recibir su mensaje en mi blog. Gracias por sus palabras, su post, es bellisimo tambien, y si pudiera algun dia venir a conocer mi tierra, la estare esperando. Un beso grande desde Reconquista, Argentina.

Petit Eyekiss said...

Thanks LV for your comment to me. You are always so good at it.
And your blog is wonderful today!
Pink Saturday seems to be enjoying themselves together. Maybe I go with them!
I give a rose to my mother, because it is "Mother's Day" today, the last Sunday in May.
The song that you can listen to has a special meaning (I have let google translate the chorus)My little brother play guitarr and sing it for our mother on Mother's Day, and the weekend after, he died in a motorcycle accident only 20 years old.
Always think of my wonderful mother when I hear it.
It is often played when we are on the "mature dancing"

Hugs
Wish you all the best
Elisabeth
