My friend, KATHY


Here 'tis...
PINK SATURDAY
Beverly has always liked us to spotlight another blogger
so I am doing just that.
THIS IS A REPOST FROM LAST YEAR..
I am sure some of you have meet KATHY...but she is fairly new to me...and I just love her.

ANY one that has a front porch this welcoming and BEAUTIFUL......


.....and has a bedroom wall that "SAYS IT ALL".......

....and is as romantic as to have a "spot" by the window for a nice glass of wine....

....and has a bath THIS cute....

.....and is THIS talented...
....and reads the BEST books...some of which are PINK..... :O)
....and loves her grand kids THIS much...
.....and has the nerve to paint all 4 walls in her magnificent living room a different pastel color and having it turn out better than ANYthing you might see in a decorating book....

...and doing such a fabulous job on it that I get heart palpitations and break into a cold, ENVY SWEAT when I look at the photos....
...and is the GRANDMOTHER of TEN (10) grandchildren and looks THIS dang good...
is bucking for my Number One Hero !!
***
YEP...I highly recommend you go over and meet
take a look around her adorable blog and, I promise...you will become as hooked on her sweetness as I am....
*PRESENT DAY..
Kathy lost her beloved not long ago ...
please go over, leave her a heeee-uge cyber hug and some sweet words....
and, if you will, tell her bj said hello.
xoxo bj

Hi BJ,
I've followed Kathy's blog for a long time and you are so right about her talent, beauty and sweetness.
It was so sad to hear about the passing of her sweet husband. Kathy is an amazing woman and continues to inspire all of us through her talents and faith.

Thanks for featuring her.

hugs
Sissie
