Welcome to my blog about yard sales, crochet, my family and my life. A yard sale map in one hand and a crochet hook in the other.

Not much left!

It's that time agian! Time for Pink Saturday sposnored by Beverly at How Sweet the Sound. Come join the fun and try to visit as many friends as possible.
I'm running out of pink things, but I do have a couple left to show you. I made this crossstitch picture for my husband shortly after we married. It just says exactly how I feel.

The next picture I can't remember where I got it. Either a yard sale or cleaning out someone's home when they moved.

And last, a sweet rose teacup.

Happy Pink Saturday!

The cross stitch is not only beautiful to look at but a most beautiful treasure by what it says.

I know what you mean when you say you are running out of pink things. I LOVE the pink cup and saucer and dish! I bought a bunch of those plates for my mosaics. I love the gold on them!
Happy Pink Saturday...

HAPPY PINK SATURDAY CHARLOTTE,
THANK YOU FOR STOPPING BY
THANK YOU FOR SHARING THE STORY ABOUT YOUR SON; PRAISE THE LORD, GOD INTERVENED THROUGH THE JUDGE.
WE WOULD HAVE FUN GOING TO GARAGE SALES TOGETHER AND MAYBE YOU COULD DO WHAT NO ONE ELSE HAS BEEN ABLE TO DO...GIVE ME A TECHNIQUE THAT WOULD KEEP ME FROM CROCHETING SO TIGHT.
CONGRATULATIONS ON YOUR WEIGHT LOSS...THAT IS AWESOME. I APPLAUD YOU BECAUSE I LOVE TO EAT AND IT IS A HARD THING FOR ME TO DO.
HUGS
SIMPLY DEBBIE

Hello Charlotte, Happy Pink Saturday! Thank you so much for stopping by and leaving a sweet comment. Love your pink post this week. Your cross stitch sampler is beautiful! That tea cup is adorable! My viburnum shrub is in the same family as a snowball shrub but a different species. These blooms are only about the size of a tennis ball. If I remember right the snowball has bigger blooms than that.
Blessings, Shirl

What a sweet thing to do for your better half. Those are nice words. Sorry, I am late returning comments today, but have been out of town. Find more pinks.
