My first goodie this week is a pair of socks that I dressed up with a sweet, little crocheted edge to fancy them up a bit for Sunday church service. I've made several pairs of these for the little girls in my life.
Found this cutie pie at my local Salvation Army Store for a dollar. No one in my neck of the woods finds vintage baby planters cute or collectible so I can grab them at my leisure, which I do whenever I am out on the prowl. There's just something about the pastel colors that attracts me along with the pure innocence of intention.
My hibiscus' don't bloom until nearly the end of summer but as I was browsing my files I found this photo from last year and just had to share them with you today. I wait all year for these beauties to open their blossoms for me...it's really worth the wait! Each blossom is a HUGE 6" across. Just ♥ them like the dickens.
I have a pink garden at the side of my house. You will find the hibiscus' that you just saw above and these pink lilies with just a touch of lavender to high-light the pinks. Summer is so short up here so each and every bloom that blesses me in the summertime is treasured.
Last but certainly not the least is my sweet Miss Camille Suzanne giving some lily-of-the-valley a little kiss showing you her darling pink tongue. Right after her tender kiss these were put way out of her reach as all parts of this plant are poisonous to cats!
There you have it, my Pink Saturday. A little of this and a little of that but all dear to my heart. Be sure to drop by Beverly's How Sweet the Sound because there are dozens of wonderful blogs listed for you to visit. Each of them is unique and each is special in its own right. Have a great weekend!
