This week for PINK SATURDAY I am featuring a blog that is not only filled with some of the most engaging photos, the "lady of the blog" is so welcoming and gracious, TREASURES from the HEART.
Now, what do I have for you this week? I thought and thought and then - there it was, right before my eyes. Our sweet blogging friend over at CONTENTED in WEST LAFAYETTE notified me a few weeks ago that I had won her wonderful giveaway! I must enter a zillion of those things a day and never win a thing, winning was a HUGE surprise and a special event for little ol' moi.
However, each and every Pink Saturday since I received my giveaway box, I kept forgetting to "show and tell". In fact, I took so long that I ate the candy (YUM) that she included and have already placed the festive fall table runner under my punkin' in the family room (I've been bad, I know). I think the runner will be the subject of another blog entry closer to the end of the month.
You can just imagine how thrilled I was when I found this lovely bowl in my gift box. My little pinkie heart nearly burst with happiness when I saw all of those roses and my twinkling eyes danced from blossom to blossom - they still are!
In the same box was the original object of the giveaway - what could be better than mixing PINK and CHOCOLATE! Another over-the-top score for me mixed with unabashed thankfulness. In addition, there were some PINK Breast Cancer Awareness candies that I've tucked into my purse to keep me all minty fresh when out and about☺But the enclosed chocolates are gone - all gone, because they were calling to me and I just couldn't ignore them. I am SO weak!
You MUST go visit CONTENTED in WEST LAYFAYETTE. Not only does this whirlwind gal blog, she has a daycare, quilts and has just opened an ETSY shop. Oh, and did I mention that she's having another giveaway this week? Yes, she sure is!
And, speaking of giveaways, you should see the one at A CHARMING HOME. Exquisite is the first word that comes to mind for me.
Pulling up the rear again is the lovely, soft as whipped cream and cute -as-a-button, Miss Camille Suzanne who wanted to share with you her favorite snoozing pose and a PURRfectly pink ear!
Have fun this week. The sun has been shining in upper Michigan for the past few days, although it is so cold my nose is blue - but I'm not going to complain because the sun is the sun and I ♥ the sun!
Don't forget to travel through cyberspace visiting all of the wonderful people who participate in Beverly's Pink Saturday over at HOW SWEET the SOUND. I promise, you will not be disappointed!
