My Pink Saturday

When I was growing up, Saturday was going to the "picture show". Today, Beverly's Pink Saturday is the best show around. In fact, there is a great feature being shown today. It's "Thoughts From Meme's Corner". Please join me for this special presentation at

My arms are opened wide welcoming you to my blog world.

It is an honor for me to be featured on Pink Saturday. So excited, I put on my poodle skirt and did a happy dance. (That is definitely not me.)

I am presenting this beautiful rose to Beverly for being such a gracious hostess each Pink Saturday. Thank you very much. I truly appreciate you.

It was so good to see that you were featured this week for Pink Saturday! I always enjoy your blog!
I had a Pink Poodle Skirt very much like yours. My Grandmother gave it to me for Christmas and for some reason, my Mom always hated it. I have no idea what happened to it, but I wish it had been saved!
I do our yard, too. And the gardens and trimming the bushes...It keeps us young!
Happy Pink Saturday!

Beverly said...

Happy Pink Saturday, dear LaVoice. I hope you enjoy being the featured blog. I know everyone else loves you, too. Thank you for being you and sharing your fun spirit and kind heart.

I never had a poodle skirt, but I did have a poodle. Actually, over the years, I have had three poodles. Our last one was a little pocket poodle named Murphy Brown. She only weighed 3 1/2 pounds. I really miss her.

Robin said...

Ha Ha Ha....not you in the it. And love that fabulous rose too. Congratulations on being the featured blog. Hope your Saturday is most pinkishly beautiful.

HAPPY PINK SATURDAY LV CONGRATULATIONS on having your blog featured on How Sweet the Sound.
Your yard, LV, is so pretty and green and how amazing you still take care of your own lawn.
I lost 2 of my blogs and just today started a new has been very frustrating and I considered not doing another one but I would miss all my sweet friends. I would love for you to join me as a follower...I lost over 500 followers between the 2 blogs...that was like loosing family.
I pray everything will be fixed soon.
I, too love that pink poodle skirt.
Angel hugs

Good morning LV, I LOVE your featured presentation on Pink Saturday. I think you are so worthy my dear sweet friend. You are an inspiration to all of us.

Hello La Voice,

I'm a reader of Pink Saturday.

Congratulations on being in the spotlight on Bev's Pink Saturday!

It's wonderful that you've learned the art of blogging and use the computer making wonderful on-line friends.

Spring is a wonderful time when the rose's bloom, your pink rose photo is beautiful!

That's a pretty pink Poodle skirt, I bought a hand-sewn white and black polka-dot poodle skirt at a church flea market which I have on display in my sitting room.

My mom tells me that when growing up in the hills of Pa that on Saturdays ,she being the oldest walked to town with the rest of her younger brothers and sisters to see not one but two movies, a news article and a cartoon.

Postcards Crossing said...

Hello, LV... congratulations on being featured and it's great "meeting" you. Your poodle skirt and rose are so pretty. I do a bit of gardening, too, just to keep me away from stressful thoughts and other vexations.

Have a great weekend.
