Happy Pink Saturday...

...I'm getting really low on pinks, but I keep telling Beverly I'm going to participate - guess I'd better find some more - yes?? For some really great pink photos go to Beverly's at How Sweet the Sound to visit some really gorgeous blogs, some amazingly talented men and women, and spend some enjoyable leisure time. You'll find shops, recipes, new friends, and really some of the most gorgeous photos - all pink, including cars, architecture, flowers - you name it!

My first photo is of some pretty pink floral fabrics, some I've had for quite sometime - in fact a couple of them may even be considered vintage. My plan is to make pillows for my new redwood bench my husband made for me for Mother's Day, and one of them is for an apron pattern from the 30's or 40's that was in my Mother's belongings.



My second photo is not really "Pink" more like a "Lavender-Pink". We've lived in this house for 3 years now, and I've been trying to get these to bloom that whole time. They must be from the original owner/builder of the house because the people we bought the house from were definitely not gardners! Imagine my surprise when after all this time, my hard work finally paid off. I've been composting and mulching along with the threat that if they did not bloom this year they were going to be pulled up and something else planted there - apparently it worked!! I guess I should have waited a couple more days before taking a photo, because now there are 2 open on this same plant and another one getting ready.



Have a wonderful Pink Saturday everyone and a weekend too. We are off to Reno for the day - my husband to go to Pic and Pull and me to the art store and the scrapbooking store - ooooh and breakfast out he says - my kind of day!! Have a good one!

Take Care

Good morning, I'm stopping by to say hello, and Happy Monday (and for some, happy blue Monday or happy belated Pink Saturday - WHEW!)

Oh that lovely iris! I have a stack of fabric like yours; ) I should have thought to use it, that was very clever of you!

My blog topic today is about a man, a dog, a love story, and a bit about embroidery. Please stop by if you have a moment.

These fabrics are gorgeous and the flower is so pretty. I don't have any flowers in my yard. I am definitely not a gardener.
