Lots of sugar - no spice but everything nice! Let's celebrate PINK SATURDAY!

Sure doesn't take long and I'm facing PINK SATURDAY again over at Beverly's How Sweet the Sound. Holy moley, my summer is just beginning. This time that is passing had better slow down because in my neck of the woods fall begins at the end of August!

I'm beginning this blog entry by sharing with you one of my most purr-ecious possessions, my kitty, Camille Suzanne and her adorable, little pink toes. She works very hard keeping them all clean and sparkley, and especially hard this week when I told her that I was going to shoot them out into cyberspace! I posted this photo on my cat blog and a comment was made that they looked like little, pink jelly beans, aawwww, how cute...sigh.

Next are my vintage sugar and creamers, each given to me as a gift by friends...friends who know my passion for pink☺

The rose is part of a night light. I don't know where the electrical part is anymore but I won't give up the rose! I've tried to find another light but most of what you find now is cheaply made and this piece is quite heavy for its size. So, there it sits...on the counter in front of a few of my cookbooks.

A few weeks back I showed the pink bunny rabbit that I found in my storage room. I had mentioned that I wanted to put some ivy in it and some of you told me that you wanted to see it planted. Well, here you are! Isn't it sweet? I have no idea why I put this in a downstairs cupboard for the past 4-5 years. Beats me and shame on me!

Pulling up the rear I is the lace and pink roses border that I added to the shelf edge in my built-in China cabinet just off the kitchen. When I sit at the kitchen table I can look over and see the pink buds...that makes me happy, yes, it does. Heck, anything pink makes me happy☺

BTW, I feel a little like rock 'n roll this weekend. How about you? Enjoy!

Your pinks are always so sweet. The lace is very pretty on the shelf. I am sure your fave is the kitty. I may running low on pinks but so far I've managed to find some different ones.

Have a great weekend. We have much to be thankful for as we remember those who made our freedom possible.

Little Camille is so cute with her pink toes. I really think she should get together with our new kitty that adopted us - Gigi. They'd be perfect together. Have a nice long weekend. I love visiting here since you're as crazy (in a good way) as I am about my pets.

YOU HAVE TO LISTEN TO WHAT YOUR PLAYING.... that's not rock'roll honey!!! It's really bad language rapping. Lot's of swearing.

Oh, you kitty cat lovers! Thank you for sharing your lovely pink items and those purrfect paws. My ten year old daughter adores cats so very much. I get tickled listening to her talk and fuss over them.

Oh Mimi, your Camille Suzanne is so beautiful! Love her little pink feet. Did you find a table to turn into a bed for your princess? I have seen them made up, and they are adorable.

I think your sugar/creamer sets are lovely.....and doesn't the little pink bunny look fine, newly planted with ivy.

Have a wonderful weekend.
Best Wishes,
Kay

I LOVE that pink bunny......I know I've told you that, but I LOVE it. It's really cute with the new ivy. I love ivy too. Except on the day I have to water......then I grumble...a LOT.

Have a wonderful and safe weekend.

Blessings,

Your pink things are so sweet, especially those kitty toes.

Thanks for the kind words about my blog background. I'm proud to say that I did it myself. I followed the instructions on The Cutest Blog on the Block website. I had to do a little tweaking of the size after I viewed it on a larger monitor, because I found that it didn't fill the whole screen. I just made the overall size larger, but kept the middle part the width that TCBOTB recommended.

I used PhotoShop Elements to make the background. It was a bit of a learning curve. I need to take a class or something or else I need to find a good book with instructions that I can understand. I don't find the help files in PhotoShop to be very user friendly.
