Pink Saturday

Pink Saturdays seem to be coming faster than I can find a "pinkie". Beverly at http://howsweetthesound.typepad.com/my_weblog tries to keep us on our toes each week.

These are drink caps that have been covered with pink crochet work.

Some of you may be acquainted with Marie at "Personalized Sketches and Sentiments". If you are not, take a minute and drop by http://personalizedsketchesand sentiments.blogspot.com and see what a talented person she is. Marie is just a special all round lady. She is a dental hygienist, self taught artist, great cook, but the number one thing in her life is her family. Should you need a very special gift, you should consider one of her personalized sketches. She has done several for me. Each is one of a kind. Just pitch her an idea or send a picture, and she will create a great piece of art.

Her work is very lovely! Are those your pink toes? I love the bottle caps, do they have a purpose, or is it for decoration?

I like the caps. Helps keep the bugs out when you take your beverage outdoors. Great idea!

Happy Pink Saturday LV Sweetie...
Oh what a gorgeous share. I love the pink toes of course. So darn cute, and those bottle caps that are crocheted over? I remember seeing some of those as coasters and under some of Grandma's pans for potholders. They were so interesting. Kept the pans up off the table linens.

What better way to end than a Rose by any other name would smell as sweet? Beautiful LV, just beautiful.

Thank you for sharing this Pink Saturday with me today. Many hugs and much love from Phoenix, Sherry

your crocheted drink caps are so tiny - amazing that you can work so small. Happy PS!

Sarah said...

Good morning, LV! Hope you're enjoying a relaxing Pink Saturday! I agree that it's sometimes difficult to find something pink to feature...I just keep putting up my little girls, but I suppose they're cutest mostly to me! Ha! Thanks for visiting my blog and for the sweet congratulations on our new baby. Today is her first Pink Saturday but she's not staying awake very well to enjoy all these pretty blog posts with me! Oh well, at least I'm more comfortable with her here by me on the bed rather than squirming around in my tummy! Have a lovely day!

HaPpY pInK sAtUrDaY!

How nice! I so appreciate your stopping by to see me. Your blog is great and I look forward to getting to know you.

When my granddaughter was in kindergarten, they lived near Houston and she would email me. She wrote one day and said that I was spelling "Mimi" wrong because
Me was "Me". I wrote her back and said that I knew she was right but I had chosen to use the French spelling. :-) She was ok with that!

You have inspired me. Most bloggers are younger than I am. It's nice to find someone a little older. Thank you for the nice comments you made on my blog. I've enjoyed my visit here. I remember crocheted bottle caps. We don't even see bottle caps anymore except plastic ones.
Happy Pink Saturday.
