PINK SATURDAY is having a birthday...

I decided to REPOST
for this SPECIAL 2ND BIRTHDAY ....

BEVERLY, my friend over at HOW SWEET THE SOUND
is hosting PINK SATURDAY
and I wanted to do a Saturday with her.

I don't have very many things in the color
PINK in my cottage...
but I do love the color...
This beautiful, PINK book was given to me several years ago by
and it's got some of the most delightful photos of
This OLD shaving mug, with the handle broken off
belonged to my mother.
The key to my wind-up clock is attached to the other end of that cord..
*MR. SWEET bought this beautiful English plate for me about 10 years ago..

Isn't this the ugliest thing you've EVER seen and
What was I thinking and even more,
what WILL I ever do with it ??????

OOPS, I feel a
coming on here........:o)
and she has
that if she can come up with ANYTHING cute out of it,
she will post a picture for ALL TO SEE....

My very favorite little plate from my mother....

One of the first quilts I made....
A favorite PINK flowered lamp from an estate sale...
The VASE holding these PINK flowers was another treasure from my mother.

And, finally....
Many thanks to BEVERLY for this fun
hugs, bj

Now I'm back to 2010....

"Beverly, thanks so much for all your hard work in bringing this wonderful and fun day to us each and every single week for two solid years."



I wish I had a seat on a comfy sectional sofa from because

I have joined with the delightful SEAN at CSN STORES

in giving away a

$60.00 GIFT CARD

to be used in their store. The winner will be able to use her/his gift card on anything of their choice.

Just leave a comment on THIS post indicating that you would like to have the
$60.00 GIFT CARD
and I will have MR. SWEET pick a number on the evening of
WINNER will be announced WEDNESDAY morning, JUNE 2.

A great way to start a brand new month, don't you think?

What a wonderful post! I love the English plate and the plate from your mother. They are both so pretty! And I would love to be entered in your giveaway!!
I do have one question... I recently bought a quilt top from ebay and my sister is going to show my how to put the back on it. Thank goodness because I would never be able to do it. But, I really want to learn to make an entire quilt on my own and am saving the girls baby clothes and my husbands shirts, so.... your first quilt, is it entirely handmade or did you use a sewing machine? I'm just curious. Thank you so much and I hope you have a wonderful time on your cruise!! I can't wait to see pictures!

Theresa said...

Oh BJ, I want to win! I will take the gift card, the quilt, the bank and the pink hickie-do that I don't even know what it is:) Have a blessed day my friend! HUGS!

Brambleberry Cottage said...

I was strollin' down memory lane with you, BJ, looking at all your cute Pink Saturday pretties, and then I came to the picture of the shabby pink door escutcheon.

I thought, "Wow! I love that piece!" Then I read your description of it "the ugliest thing you've ever seen" and started laughing.

Beauty truly is in the eye of the beholder.

I would love to have you join my three new linky parties. I just put the very first one up tonight, June 1st.
