WITH her "touch of pink", I had to show you one of my sweet granddaughters, BRYNNA,
dressed for 80's DAY at school....
is she totally adorable or WHAT !!
She's a cutie, fur sure, fur sure!!
Her mom was a teen in the 80's so she knew just how to dress BRYNNA...
LAST month, I was blessed to win the most adorable GINGERBREAD MAN COOKIE CUTTER CARD
from one of the SWEETEST bloggers you will ever meet.
Her name is REBECCA and she lives over at A GATHERING PLACE..
The wrap is still on this pretty card but I didn't want to take it out right now....
The card says,
Gingerbread Cookies
Candles Aglow
Popcorn and Stockings
All Hung In A Row.
Mistletoe, Holly
And Twinkling Lights
Blessings Will Follow
This Cold Winter night.
Families Gather
Together With Love
For Christmastime Giving
And Joy From Above.
by Rebecca Nelson/2009

Be sure to go over and check out her adorable shop with so many gifts to choose from!

I am happy to be playing PINK SATURDAY again with our friend, BEVERLY at HOW SWEET THE SOUND... ********************************************
My daughter*in*law, KATHY, and her first granddaughter, CATE....
I am thankful for all these people in my life...

Happy PS!

Your granddaughter looks adorable in her 80's outfit, what a cutie! The little baby your daughter-in-law is holding is adorable too, but I'm thinking, that would make you a great-grandmother, and that's not possible, you're way too young! Btw, my daughters love reading your posts too, we all love bj around here :-)

Oh, BJ... I loved your pinks. The cookie cutter is precious, and that baby! Oh, that baby is a doll!

Happy Pink Saturday...

Adorable Granddaughter. I could do 80s too. I have pictures of my Daughter dressed like that:) Oh sweet Cate, She is a dollbaby!

What a cute card with the cookie cutter. There are some really creative bloggers out there!

Have a sweet Saturday Dear BJ!

That is such a lovely photo of your d-in-law. I don't see my granddaughter, so it touched me, as this is how I always envisages I would be if I were blessed with a granddaughter. Sadly it wasn't meant to be..... life doesn't always turn out as expected, but you learn to pick yourself up and get back to being the positive happy woman you were, and are, inside. Thanks for sharing, and commenting on my village blog.

I remember my daughter actually dressing and living the 80's style!
Your grand daughter is darling. Happy PINK Saturday!

Sue (Someone's Mom) said...

I think your granddaughter looks like you. I was glad to read she was "in costume" as my first thought was "Oh no! That look is back in style"! She's so cute.

Love your gingerbread win, and always love to see a grandma with her baby. Mine are both boys so no pink around this nest-darn it!


Elizabeth said...

Your granddaughter looks perfect for the 80s, she could go back in time w/ Michael J. Fox and his time machine!

Happy Saturday BJ! Your grand daughter is so perfectly dressed for the 80s. I had kind of forgotten about that look. :)

Andi's English Attic said...

And I didn't even know about Pink Saturday. Perhaps I should join in, after all I AM beginning to like pink, perhaps the pink lovers would be interested in my journey.
Your granddaughter looks great. Did mum have some authentic clothes still in her wardrobe? Thanks for stopping by my blog. xx

Pat@Back Porch Musings said...

Hi BJ....

Your little granddaughter is just adorable...she does look like the 80's.

I LOVE Rebecca....she is just the sweetest thing, isn't she?

Your little great granddaugter is a darling little pink thing!

Yes, I was on RMS for awhile several years ago. I have linked up with so many girlies from "the old days"! :-)

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving.

Warm blessings,

Claudia said...

Happy Pink Saturday, BJ! The cookie cutter is so cute and your granddaughter looks adorable and straight out of the 80's!

kimmcl said...

Hey BJ! I just saw your comment about linking to my post. If I can bring a smile to someone's face I'm all for that! Funny though, hubby wasn't smiling so much today.....ha!
Oh, and yes! I'd be thrilled if you mentioned me in your wonderful blog!!!

Justine said...

Your granddaughter looks awesome! Before I even read, I said, "Whoa, totally 80s!"

Justine :o )

Kathleen Grace said...

Oh my goodness the 80's! Did we really look like that? the only thing that makes me feel better is that every generation looks at their teen pictures and cringe. Lol, I think this generation it will be the boys baggy jeans with their buns hanging out that make them feel silly. Your grandaughter manages to be cute nonetheless. Happy pink Saturday BJ.

Shelia said...

Hi Bjness! Oh, your ggranddaughter is just so cute all dolled up for the 80s!
Congratulations on winning Rebecca's cookie cutter. Isn't she a doll and so pretty!
You are a blessing to me Dear One! Thank you always for your visits to see me.

Oh BJ...thank you for the NOD on your little Card. I'm soooo happy you love it! I've almost sold out of all of them for this year. I can't believe it. God is sooo good and faithful. Isn't He?

You granddaughter is a hoot....

And the picture of your DIL with her grand baby girl is just so precious...

Blessings to you, friend. Make your Thanksgiving Day be filled with much JOY!
