I just don't have the heart to put this little guy away for a year. He's the right color. He's cute. He makes me happy. So, until, and if, I get tired of looking at a little Easter bunny, he will sit atop the books next to my reading chair. Who would have ever thought that fake chocolate bunnies would earn a spot in the heart of the world? Beats me but someone is laughing all the way to the bank and not many people do that now-a-days, hehehe!
Usually when the grandkids and I get together, sodas, malts or shakes are the snack of the evening, although I do slip in a smoothie quite often to make their mom and dad happy! Of course, what else would Mimi serve up her creamy concoction in other than pink tumblers with a pink straw poked into the top of the foam?
Been a busy week over in my neck of the woods. For the past few days I have been chopping ice and shoveling snow...tossing it into the sun to it will melt. (My back is killing me.) My garage shelters mounds of snow from the sun so spring doesn't come to that part of my yard unless I do something about it. BUT, even with all my chores around the house I managed to do a little thrifting over at my favorite place, Goodwill Industries (some this week, the rest next week for Pink Saturday).
You've seen Rosemary's bed a few weeks ago but it's making a second debut because I found this sweet, pink, knitted baby blanket for $2.00 and couldn't resist. Now Rosemary can cuddle into her kitty bed, snuggle into her new blankie and snooze to her ♥'s content. I am always amazed that little gems like this blanket are sold for so little. I knit and this item took a lot of hours to complete...sigh.
Around the next corner at Goodwill I came upon this sweet, pink baby bootie that at one time must have held ivy and an adorable card to welcome a little girl into this big world of ours. I can't tell you how many of these I have tossed out never giving it another thought. But now they are making a resurgence in collecting and have become a "find" of all things. So, a couple of months ago I really looked at one and found a new appreciation for the sweetness and coloration. OK, so here comes another little collection that I'll have to dust. Gee, when will I learn? Probably never. The others that I have will make an appearance on another Pink Saturday. I filled those with cotton balls, Q-tips and guest soaps. This one...maybe it will end up on my kitchen table filled with sugar packets. Cute, huh? Any ideas for more?
Don't forget to pop over to Beverly's at How Sweet the Sound to see all of the other folks who have participated this week. My gosh, you'll see some of the most creative, lovely and special blogs and today, loaded with pink-a-licious goodies just for you!
