Soft 'n comfy, Pink 'n practical, Rosebuds 'n cookies, it must be PINK SATURDAY!

For the first time in a while, I had to sit back and make a list of pink goodies that I would share with you this week and then it hit me - I was sitting on one of my pinkies and had overlooked it for months! I'll never forget when I bought this piece of furniture, so totally impractical but one of those things that I wanted and couldn't forget. It is so comfy and I ♥ the high back because if I happen to want to snooze, my head is supported "just right".
Here's another of my favorite goodies. It usually sits to the side of the my chair and footstool if I am working on a project. I found this on eBay several months' back and fell in ♥ all of the darling pink rosebuds; not to mention that it is very roomy and can hold literally oodles of yarn. The lid/top closes with Velcro to keep pet hair out and the side handles are so handy when I want to move it from room to room.Isn't this little footstool sweet? It sits in front of the chair you just saw and both are in a corner of my dining room. Believe me, I don't plunk my tootsies on this unless I know my socks are clean
Ending this week's pinkies is my dogs' cookie jar. Each time the poochies come in from outside they sit by this jar at the end of the kitchen counter waiting for something yummy magically appear. I keep very small, puppy-size treats inside so Scout and Freyja aren't disappointed.

Now that you've seen my pink-a-licious Saturday offerings, you need to visit Beverly at HOW SWEET THE SOUND. There are dozens of blogs listed that are waiting for your Pink Saturday visit!

Well, the chair and foot stool sure looks comfy. And the box full of project materials sure is a pretty storage box. Pretty even for display. My fave is the "treat" jar. I like the black and pink combo very much :-)

Happy Pink Saturday!

Ohhhh, the car is so very pretty and feminine and springy and the little tote is adorable, but that stool, wow, I don't blame you, no way would I pop my feet on it unless my socks were stopless. It is so pretty.
I hope you have a great week-end and thanks for stopping by my blog.

Mimi, I think you are the pinkest lady I know. :) That footstool is 2 die 4. HPS and happy pink week too. xo Lynn

claudie said...

Mimi that special pink basket would accommodate a few of my furry friends. I have been looking for a nice big basket to put a pillow in for one of my smaller dogs. Love it. One little booboo...the word "roject" I think it should have said "project". Hope you don't mind.
Thanks for the encouragement for Lucky and Sasha. We all had a great night. Just picture Randy and I, and 6 dogs in one bedroom. Funny scene, but I love it. Mama and Kat are enjoying the outdoors, in the sun, with us also.
Happy PS Mimi
Love Claudie
