It's Pink Saturday and a Time for Sharing...

After a miserable time last week trying to post for Pink Saturday I have finally made it again! A few kind people told me that I should use a blog editor and that is just what I may have to do. I have four, yes, ladies, four blogs (I have to be out of my mind) and have been so frustrated with the Blogger editor. I've been on the internet and using a computer at home since 1997 and have never been so confused as to how to use something easily and seamlessly. But, enough of that, here we go!
Over the past couple of weeks I've had the chance to stop at my local Goodwill Store to do a little browsing. I am a sucker for cookbooks and for recipe collecting and happened to spy this little gem. When my grandsons are here for sleepovers we like to make smoothies, so this book was begging to come home with me!
I can't believe that I have been doing Pink Saturday for most of this year and never thought to share with you my kitchen scale. Honestly, I don't weigh that much food, but it was pink and it was calling my name, so it made it through my back door. Mostly I use it to hold fresh fruit on the kitchen counter.
 
 During another Goodwill stop I found this sweet, little bunny who now sits on my kitchen window sill. She looks at me when I am doing dishes or cleaning veggies at the kitchen sink.
Another pinkie found at Goodwill, this isn't going to be a permanent fixture in my home. All polished up, it has been offered for sale on eBay. Although, I do have to say that it was a tough call whether or not to keep it but I just have so much counter space and do need to use it every now and then for actual cooking and not just to display pink goodies!
 
Last, but by far not the least, is my Miss Camille Suzanne. She mentioned to me today that she would like to share with her fans her sweet, and purr-ecious, pink nosie and darling pink toesies! And, yes, she is just as soft as she looks - much like holding whipping cream that purrs. (Don't ask me how in the world she got into that pose. She never told me.)

Be sure to stop by Beverly's HOW SWEET THE SOUND to check out all of the gorgeous blogs that participate each week in her PINK SATURDAY event! Time well spent☺

Hi, Mimi,
I enjoyed all of your pretty pinks today! I am partial to that sweet little bunny, too. And I must say your sweet kitty is the sweetest pink of all. Happy Pink Saturday! Vicki

It can be alittle frustrating when things happen like that out of the blue.

I like your scale and the one with the word "coffee" in it :-) Hhhhmmm maybe I need to make me one. It'll be nice since its raining hard :-)

Hello,
Even though I am not participating (as I missed the deadline yet again), I am doing an organic visit to wish my friends old and new, Happy Pink Saturday!

What's an organic visit'? It's one that takes a natural course through an almost viral form. I'm visiting people YOU have had visit, and then visiting people they have had visit, and so on! Great way to reach out and talk to people.

Your post was delightful, HPS -

What DELIGHTFUL pink photographs in this post ... especially your precious kitty in the last one!!! Like you I have 4 blogs (cRaZy) ... 3 on Blogger and one at WordPress. It's not easy keeping up these days, but I try to relax and do what I can. I'm with you about the new Blogger editor and I use the old one still. That said ... the Blogger editor is MUCH simpler than the one at WordPress! I've experimented with composing posts in a variety of email editors but haven't found anything that works particularly well ... so if YOU'VE found something I'd love to know what it is.

I've shared my very first Pink Saturday at Happily Retired Gal, my WordPress blog. Hope you'll drop by as time permits ;--)
Hugs and blessings,

Coloured scales are nice to have to brighten up the kitchen - I like your pink one..... and for refreshing drinks - smoothies & shakes sounds good.

Your Miss Camille is so cute & lovable - wishing you both a happy pink saturday and a fabulous week.

ciao for now,
Elena :)

Good morning, I am loving your pink today. The Good Will purchases just makes me smile. Love the scale and your kitty. She is the cutest thing ever.

Happy pink Sat.

Hugs...Jeanne

My Arts Desire said...

Ohhhhhhhh...your kitty. She is adorable and your description of her being like whipped cream that purrs just melted my heart. There are no kitties in our home at the present time, but after a couple of decades of having cats, everytime I see a photo like yours it tugs at me.

Happy pink,
Sue

terrimorse said...

Hi Mimi! You have a lovely blog. I know what you are feeling as far a frustrations. The typepad editor gives me fits sometimes! I love your pink scale! If I weren't collecting red items for my kitchen, I'd probably be doing a pink one! I love your sweet kitty. I've always had a special place in my heart for cats. I have funny gray tabby named Arthur. He's thirteen and he still tears about the house like a nut! He's especially funny when he chases his tail. Thank you so much for visiting me this morning. Your kind words were just what I needed to lift my sagging spirit. Have a great weekend!

LV said...

I loved everything about your blog today. You have some very nice items. But, I am having a hard time with you doing four blogs. I can hardly keep up with one. It takes a lot of time and to I am not the sharpest kid on the block. Do not see how you do it. Take care.
