I'd like to start Pink Saturday off
with Beverly's visit a new blog challenge.

This lovely pillow is the creation of
Mari at A pocket full of roses

and this is only one of many
pretty pinks she has to share.

Give her a visit (if you haven't already)
I promise it won't ruffle your feathers ;-)

And my share today are some
new magazines
I picked up this week and
a little sneak pink peek inside each.

To add to a little girl's dream...
Dixie of French Lique is having
a giveaway for this very magazine.
Hurry over and pop your name
in the hat if you would like to see
every single page inside of
Flea Market Style.

I loved reading about this
old mill turned cozy cottage.
See the pink blooming tree?

These many outdoor escapes can be
found at your favorite magazine stand
for most of you gals.

Remember Dixie's giveaway
and the list of all the other
Pink Saturday gals
is at Beverly's

How Sweet The Sound

Life's too short not to have
a little pink in it!

The sun is hiding behind rain clouds this morning
and wouldn't I love to curl up with
some magazines and dream of what
spring with bring
to my home and garden? YES!

But the real world is calling and errands must be run. MIL needs blood work done and hubby is leaving for the weekend with 25 other adult Scout leaders and he is in charge of the food. So, look out HEB here I come. I wonder if I can get it all in one cart?

Doesn't that runner have the most wonderful white accents?

Faded Charm Cottage

Gotta run..............

TEXAS Treat!

Texas is in for a real treat! KC Willis of Lipstick Ranch is coming to town next April 2011, for two weekends of KC collage camp. A whole weekend in the beautiful Clark Mansion, with other crafty chicks, soaking up instruction from one of the best. I just booked a room for me and a friend which filled up the first weekend. Check out KC's blog to see her work and check out KC On The Road, but ya better hurry before it fills up. I think this is better than winning the lottery!

All above options are my own gitty ramblings.

So happy you stopped by to spend
a few moments with me on this
Pink Saturday.

Two of these needlepoint pillows
came home with me from
a local
shop...Twice Blessed.

That's what I feel,
truly blessed, twice,
to have them both.

Seems they love to pose with my
Italian pottery basket of pink flowers.

Knobby pink sweater and a hat with
that pretty white & pink flower are
perfect for a day visiting all the other
Pink Saturday participants...
won't you come with me?

Here we Beverly's at

So which is it?

...the chick or the egg?

Love this bunny bowl center piece
And what happens to a chick
that doesn't have a centerpiece?

...well according to these chicks
she might have
egg on her face.

For you crafty chicks, here's the
for these cuties.

Here's hoping your Easter is
loaded with Gladness.
