A little bag of goodies for Pink Saturday!

This week I am featuring a blog that I consider to be a "two-fer". This lady's cornerstone blog, Loveleigh Treasures, is a feast for the eyes. Around every corner and on every page there is something pretty or sweet or interesting.

Of course, she features oodles of pink - I adore - and has a kind, loving relationship with her furry companions - a trait I admire. This week she is bringing us a little pink Christmas, another of my passions, so please be sure to stop by her place and tell her that Mimi sent you

But, if that wasn't enough for her to do and adequate room for her to spread her charm and creativity, there is another blog of this sweet lady's to check out and to explore - Autumn's Loveleigh Occasions.

Go there now and take a peek, but be sure to bookmark this blog. It is loaded with fall/autumn ideas and goodies and treats for the eye. You can get lost in her links to fun blog trinkets and the creative and inspiring links and "loveleighs".

If you don't have the time to explore today (who does on a Saturday, especially if the sun is out), take not of their whereabouts because you are going to want to go back to visit...often.

Now, if that wasn't enough fun for you, I'd like to share a stool that my grandsons used to stand on to be tall enough to brush their little toofies at the bathroom sink when here at Mimi's for a sleepover. I ♥ this little goodie of mine like the dickens and although it isn't used much any longer because boys do tend to grow taller, it holds many sweet moments in time for me. Happily, my little men still don't consider themselves to be too old for a sleepover (last one was yesterday), so we will still build on the memories but they no longer need the extra boost just before bedtime.

Before the weekend is gone, be sure to drop by Beverly's HOW SWEET THE SOUND for oodles of links to some of the most beautiful blogs on the web that are featuring some of the most luscious pink goodies in celebration of Pink Saturday this week. It will be time well spent!

That stool represents many wonderful memories, doesn't it? Happy Pink Saturday, Mimi!

CC said...

Hi Mimi... Wow, that's a beautiful Christmas tree and also a lovely stool. I will definately check out the blog you mentioned. I can always use more ideas. Happy Pink Saturday and have a lovely week.

Sares said...

I am speechless Mimi. That was just about the most fabulous feature I have yet to see! You are truly the best! Thank you so much for the wonderful introduction, I had quite a few of your ladies visit me today, which was great. I love new visitors!

Your little stool is adorable. I need something stylish for when I have to help my nephew with the potty training!

Happy Happy Pink Saturday and thank you again for all your beautiful and kind words!

Sares said...

Hi again Mimi, I just found your comment on Loveleigh Occasions about some of my graphics not linking when you click on them, if you click on the name above the graphic it will link you. Some of them were buttons that had the actual link built in and I didn't go through and link all the non-buttons. I'm now thinking I should do that, you may not have been the only one confused. Another project to do! Thanks for the heads up!

Oh Mimi what a wonderful post, and I agree, we all need a little sleepover once in awhile. The picture with the pumpkins and bats is over the top great, Happy Pink Saturday by little blogging pinkie and have a great week, Char

Karrie said...

What a wonderful collection of Pinks! Thanks for stopping by, sadly my house is full of the Flu Bug! So needless to say the past couple of days have been filled with medicine and rest. Hope you have a wonderful week!

Lemondrop Marie said...

Such a lovely, lovely post! Glad to see you for PS! I love these fall images.

Happily Retired Gal said...

Delightful PINK post for Saturday! Love that darling stool especially. Thanks for visiting mine at Happily Retired Gal following your important Saturday business. Glad to hear your grandson's team played well ;-)
Hugs and blessings,

Sara Chapman in Seattle, USA said...

The stool is so sweet, but probably way too pretty for boys any bigger than very small. In our house, they were teefies, not toofies. Lucky you they still sleep over sometimes.

Nancy @ La Chambre Rose said...

Thanks for stopping by a "middle" blog (on the list!). We remarked that given a "kick in the pants" it would snow here, too. The sun is peeking out. A rare commodity in Vermont.

Suzanne said...

Hey, I'm just now getting around too. Saturdays are crazy for me so I leisurely look on Sunday. Your pink post is truly lovely...and I also am a fan of Loveleigh treasures.

Bunny said...

Hi. Love the pink Christmas tree it is beautiful, and I will sure go and look at the link for the autumn displays. Thanks for stopping by today, had a rough day yesterday daughter was in a car accident on Friday night she will be fine just very sore but car is a write off. We have a lot to be thankful this Thanksgiving weekend here in Canada.

claudie said...

I'm loving the pink tree Mimi. Congrat's to your grandson on his win. Hurray.
Now snow? this morning? NOOOOOOOOOOOOO
We are having a hurricane right now... well kind of. But at least the wind is moving the clouds and the sun is shining.
I'm going to check Loveleigh Treasures...looks divine.
Heading out for our Thanksgiving dinner with friends... Yummy in my tummy.
Love hearing from you.
Love Claudie

Hi Mimi,
What a very sweet post. Thanks for sharing and for dropping by for a visit. There was so many participants this Saturday that I haven't been able to get to all of them yet. So please don't worry about not not getting to everyone yesterday. By the way, congraturlations to your grandson and his team. Have a beautiuful Sunday. Until next time.


jeanne said...

Hello Mimi, I am still visiting as well. I'm glad you got a smile and I bet it was our puppy to be.

Congrats to your grandson's team and him for such a great win. A happy dance is needed here. Smiling!

I will visit your new blog discovery. Your post is wonderful as always.

Have a happy week.

Hugs, Jeanne

I told my husband about the kids defeating an undefeated team woohoo...he is such a football nut!


Wishing you a Happy pink sat. one day late. I too was not on my computer yesterday and am trying to play catch up now.

MiniMadWoman said...

Mimi, thank you for visiting my blog and leaving your kind comments!

Sares's blogs really are beautiful and inspirational. She is so sweet to share with us all!

I love your little stool . . . how special it is for you to have such memories attached to it!

Congratulations to your grandson on winning his football game! Woo Hoo!

Thanks for sharing and Happy Pink Saturday!


Patti Cakes said...

I've heard others talking about snow. It turned cold here in East TN very quickly. During the day it still gets pretty warm but at night it is cold!!!!! Stay warm and cozy! Hugs

Mimi thank you so very much for hoppin over to my lil blog!!

I am so glad you are a wonderful grandma and went to your grandsons game instead! He will so remember you being there for him!
And how fun that they have sleepovers with grammy!! I so want to be a grandma one of these days but think I will have to adopt as my boys are sure they are not getting married or having kiddos! At 25 and almost 27 I think they might be right!


Oh thank you for sending us to the wonderful blog- I loved all those beautiful pink trees!

Iphigenia said...

thanks for visiting and leaving sweet comments. i'm glad you spent your time with your grandson, there is nothing more precious....and your stool is pretty...have a nice week

SmilingSally said...

Thanks, Mimi. I hope you had a good weekend.

Charlene said...

I'm late for Pink Saturday too! Sorry but, that football game was THE MOST IMPORTANT THING!!!! That 11 year old will be 21 before you blink sweetie. Hope you enjoyed the day. I had company all weekend & loved it so it was a win win for both of us. Have a great week.

Sue@MyArtsDesire said...

Hello Mimi,
Thank you for visiting! I'm up in our mountain cabin at the moment, need to pack up and head back to the Atlanta area...but I'm dragging my feet. Unlike your dusting of snow, it is pouring rain in the mountains of NCarolina.

Congratulations to your grandson's football team! It always warms my hearts to see grandparents involved in their grandbabies lives as it adds a dimension of love to their lives that is so unique.

I'm with you on the little darling stool that was used to "brush toofies"...it is darling in its own right, but priceless because of the memories it evokes!

Stay warm!

Michelle said...

Thank you for sharing this lovely post, I will be stopping over to the other blog. Your stool is adorable. Ty for stopping by Mimi. Have a great week and God bless you.

Marsha (Sassy Mini Dolls) said...

What a lovely post! That little stool is so darn cute!

Thank you for visiting me!

I too am a wee bit behind in my Pink Saturday visits as I was a dealer at a miniature show this past weekend and of course my table was PINK!

Have a wonderful week!


Tricia said...

Thanks for stopping by my blog and welcoming me to Pink Sat. I tried to post on Sun. but for some reason it wouldn't post. But it is nice to see someone else on here from MI. I had heard you had snow up North. We just had cold here. Congrats to your grandson for winning the game.
