Pink Saturday

Beverly, our hostess, welcomes you to another addition of Pink Saturday. Some of the best pinks ever can be found at each Saturday.

One of my favorite Sun Bonnet Sue quilts.

While I was taking a little R&R time, I had the opportunity to visit "Bernideen's Tea Time". It is very nice and well furnished store with all kinds of teas and accessories. Never saw so many pretty teapots, cup and saucers. If you visit her blog at, you will be very pleased. She may serve you a great little jelly filled tart and a spot of tea.

Blue Monday

So glad Sally is smiling more these days. You will be smiling as well if you join her on Blue Monday at
On my blogging break, I had the privilege of meeting one our fellow bloggers. She is Anne,very appropriately dressed in blue, with Suzanne, Coloradolady, and myself. I am sure some of you know her blog "Phamily Blog".
We met her ,along with her three daughters, at this restaurant. She is truly a delightful lady with all kinds of interesting things to talk about. She reminded me of one of my sisters. My sister likes to talk. However, her stories are never as interesting as what Anne shared. My sister tells us that God gave her a mouth and she intended to use it.
Anne was kind, thoughtful and presented us each with this lovely blue ornament. She also included another item, but it will show up on another day.

Thank you Sally for letting me share Anne's blues on your show today.

Vintage Cards

Never again will we be able to see or use cards like this anymore.

When wealth is gone, little is lost; when health is gone, something is lost; but when character is gone, all is gone!

When we were kids, we thought our "best friends" were going to be eternal. In some neighborhoods, they cut their fingers with something sterile like a jagged glass or dirty pocket-knife, and mixed their blood, making them":blood sisters or brothers" for life. Today that might not be such a good idea. We have become more knowledgeable about newly developed diseases we might spread by swapping blood and spit. Today we just make a promise to be friends forever. But, few of us know the joy of true friendship. If you are lucky enough to have a true friend, treasure the relationship. They are few and far between.

I consider myself very fortunate to have cultivated some special friendships, which I refer to as my "heart friends" someone you know you can count on in the midst of crisis or turmoil, if only to have a sincere ear to listen while offering a hug. Everyone has multiple acquaintances they might refer to as friends, but often times there is a vast difference between the two sorts.

Family and friends are precious and treasures we all often take for granted. We have no guarantee of tomorrow and life can change in the blink of an eye. In today's hustle-bustle, fast paced life take a minute to take an inventory of the relationships that are important to you. Let those that mean something to you know that they are a significant part of your life.

Just something to think about.

The last of these little blues.
Spotted these in one of my antique mall outings. Thought the blue bottles reflection in the mirror gave us a double dose.

Pink Saturday

It is always such a joy when Pink Saturday rolls around. Beverly at takes us into the weekend with style.

The way the economy is going and so many banks failing, this may be the safest place to put your savings.

I visited another great blogger this week. Her blog is called "Colony Mountain Stitcheries" (click HERE). She is a maker of Native American Dolls. You cannot imagine the work she does until you see it. The dolls are unbelievable. Creating rustic and weathered vignettes is a passion of hers as well. Please take the time to give this very talented lady a visit at

This is to inform you I will not have a Pink Saturday post on September 17th. If nothing happens, I will be in Colorado on that date.
