Tiny pink noses & little pink toes-ez, teeny pink chicks & slippers with bows-ez...my Pink Saturday fun!

I confess, I'm sharing a couple of things that will be going into my grandchildren's Easter baskets and since four of them I have to mail, the goodies are making their appearance a week early for Pink Saturday over at Beverly's How Sweet the Sound.

First to make an entrance are the little slippers that will be in my grand-daughter Rachel's basket. When I saw those (the only pair left), I grabbed them like they were the last candy bar in the store. I just couldn't believe my eyes that I had scored such cutie pies for my faorite Cutie Patootie!

Rachel will also be the new mommy to this sweet, pink bunny. My gosh, they didn't make stuffed animals like these when I had babies. Nowadays, they are just so soft and cuddly and in the most darling colors, too.

The pink Peeps are also going to be in Rachel's basket (blue for the boys). This year she will be opening a box loaded with pink goodies and...guess what...pink is her favorite color...how lucky am I? I know...I know...I'm LUCKY!

I thought you'd like to see my tiny, pink chenille chicks all nestled in their fluffy, feather nest. After I get done with this blog entry, I'm gonna get on my jammies and tell those guys to move on over cuz it sure looks snuggly in there!

Each and every time I walk by this happy, happy bunny rabbit I just MUST smile. The expression on his face is pure bliss and who could resist tickling those pink toes or tweaking his tiny, pink nose? He sits on my kitchen table giving me a little lift several times each day. In fact, he may not go back into hiding after Easter. I need him around...

Isn't this curly gal just too cute? Found her on eBay along with some of her brothers and sisters. All of them live in a basket here at my place now that they've made it from Washington State to northern Michigan. So far they've told me that living here with me isn't all that ba-a-a-a-d! (Bad joke, I know, but couldn't resist. Shame on me! Blue spot on her body is basket filler.)

Pink feathers, who in the world can resist pink feathers? This pink boa, when not being photographed, is part of a "dress up" box I have set aside for Rachel.

Pulling up the rear is my pink Teddy. This guy sits on a shelf in my dining room. Funny, the whole room is fairly formal, but when I brought Teddy home he never made it upstairs to my bedroom or into the grandkids' toy room. Until he gets weary of sitting on that shelf or until I think he needs to take a nap...the shelf is where he'll stay.

Have a wonderful Pink Saturday, everyone. Spring is in the air, God is in His Heaven, and all is right with the world, at least my little corner, and I pray yours as well.

Dru said...

OMGoodness Mimi, all your pinks are just so adorable - I really love the bunny slippers. Happy Pink Saturday and thanks so much for stopping by.

Dru said...

I just had to leave another comment Mimi - after my other one, I continued to look through your blog - I don't know why I did not see it before - and I found the most wonderful post about making baby beds for sweet little orphaned baby animals - as soon as I'm done with this post I'm heading over there and signing up. I have granddaughters that I think will love doing this also. Thank you so much, and if it's o.k. with you, I would like to post that link from my blog also. I'm so excited I can hardly stand it - thank you so much!

Hello Mimi,

Rachel would be so happy finding pinks in her basket. and the fluffy slippers will definitely warm her tiny feet :-)

The smiling/very happy bunny is so adorable. Yeah, maybe you should let him hang around a little longer cause there's no doubt he brings a smile to anyone who pass by him :-)

(just dropping by and not participating this Saturday)

KBeau said...

That lamb is just the sweetest thing. I think he's my favorite.

Claudia said...

Rachel is going to have the best Easter Basket! Everything is perfectly pink! Happy Pink Saturday!

Sit-N-Chat said...

How pretty. I think you have an endless supply of "quality" pinks. Very Blessed, you are. I reallylike the little lamb. All of it.

Have a great weekend.


The Pink Bird House said...

Mimi, first I want to thank you so much for all the lovely comments that you leave on my posts! thank you so much for dropping by all the time.

Now on to your delightful pink items for your granddaughter for Easter. Oh, I would love to be part of your family! :-) Your items are just precious, I am in love with the pink chenille chicks. How cute are they, and your comment about hopping in with them cuz it looks so cozy in there just had me smiling over here. You are so right about the stuffed animals of today, they are exceptionally soft and just begged to be hugged and cuddled and touched. If I did not have too many collections already, I would definitely start a stuffed animal collection and be the biggest kid on the block here! :-) Years ago the mother of a friend of mine decided to do just that, live her life long dream and create her own special TOY ROOM. Her kids were grown, so she had the space. She filled the room with stuffed animals and dolls, rocking horses, trains, you name it. It was the most delightful room I have ever seen. It is something for me to think about when my own kids start to move out!! Anyway, thanks for sharing such a cuddly, cute and very pink post with us. It was delightful!!! hugs, Debby

LaVerne said...

Thanks for stopping by on Pink Saturday...I love those bunny slippers...have had at least a half dozen pair myself, wore their little tails off, would love new ones but the only ones I've seen lately (for young-at-heart adults) have been too expensive...wish I had a sweet Nana who would send me a pair in my Easter basket. Rachel is going to love them along with allthe pink treats. Have a Pink Week. LaVerne in Texas

That shabby Pink Girl said...

Hi mimi
what cute pink stuff, love the slippers, someone is going to be very happyeee!!I live in an area where there are no classes for anything, well anything I want to learn anyway, i had to do it the hard way, trial and error, I googled needle felting and found a tutorial on the internet and it helped a lot, they have a video to watch, if you ever start it you will be hooked, it is so much fun!! Just be careful of the needles, they are vicious.
Thanks for stopping by my Blog.

My best to you.

That shabby Pink Girl said...

Hi Mimi
I want one of those pink peeps~yummy!!
I went to google and googled needle felting and it will bring up all kinds of info. Also on You Tube there is a video you can watch. thats what I did. I didn't have anyone I could ask , we don't have classes where I live for the things I want to do. I had the curly wool I used because I used to make Santa Beards, but you can also buy on ebay, there are some wonderful sellers of wool for needle felting. I had a Sheep pattern of mine published in a magazine some time ago, so I've always made sheep in one form or another. And we raise them, so that gives me the want to. Hope this helps.

WOW Mimi
I'm number 74 to comment. Your blog is OH SO PRETTY.
Thanks for sharing Corey's site. I have been following her for awhile now (not following, just checking her blog i mean). It really started when she lost her dad. I know, I went through those really bad times like her, and after 25 yrs. I still miss him so much.
Glad you enjoy Eleanor's blog. She's very unique and I love dropping in on her every week or so.
I'm reading a REALLY great book set in South Africa. It's called The Power of One by Bryce Courtnay. All about a little boy named Peekay. I can't put it down Mini. I think you would like it.
Ok I need to get my Tablescape together.
Love you
