WELCOME TO ANOTHER PINK SATURDAY!

Gosh...it's been a busy week. My Dad's brother and sister came in on Wednesday to visit. Dad is 90 and has Alzheimer's, but his face lit up when he saw them. They're 84 and 87, so it's really nice that the three siblings can get together.

I had to quickly come up with something for this week's Pink Saturday and decided to share this little bear with you that I bought at Tuesday Morning a month or so ago. I thought she was sweet in her pink hat and glasses and I liked what was written on the pink heart she was holding. I just had to buy her and bring her home.


And then as I was looking around the house for something else to share I spotted this gourd. I used to weave baskets and during a basket swap I was given this gourd. The top of the gourd is decorated with some cording that is sewn on. Yes, I know it's not a basket, but some basket weavers also enjoying decorating gourds. I was thrilled to receive it since I didn't work with gourds myself. She painted magnolias on the sides and they have a pink tint. I wish I could remember the lady's name, but I've long since forgotten. I wish I could tell her how much I've enjoyed her work over the years.


Thank you for visiting and I hope you all have a wonderful weekend and a Happy Pink Saturday!
