Pink Saturday Fairy ~

Happy Pink Saturday and Happy One Month Birthday Anniversary to my little fairy elf (great granddaugher) Lena. She is still on a heart monitor but she is gaining weight (she reached 5 lbs.) and she is doing very well.  I like to call her my little fairy princess, Tink.
She is so precious. I had fun making this collage for Pink Saturday.

Happy Pink Saturday ~ June 18, 2011

Happy Pink Saturday!
On our recent trip we visited an antique store in Statham, Georgia. I found a perfect souvenir for a Pink Saturday post.  When I saw this hat pin I had to have it, I've always want one.
I don't really need a hat pin for this straw hat. It was a snug fit when I purchased it about 5 years ago after I lost my hair while having  chemotheraphy treatments. Hat pins only work well with a good amount of hair.

A pink bundle of joy almost 7 weeks earlier than expected.

She now weighs 4 lbs. and is scheduled to come home tomorrow.
Happy Pink Saturday!

Wedding Blog Party

Stephanie at Angelic Accents is hosting a Wedding Day Blog Party on Friday, June 10th. and we are all invited to attend. Click on her blog name above or on her party button located on my side bar to visit her and all her party guests and peruse the Wedding Day posts.

For my post I thought I'd share a little about my own (not traditional) wedding day. Forty years ago, on a snowy Thanksgiving Day, we were married. It was quite an eventful day with many unusual twists and turns, but by the end of the day we were married and we celebrated with family and friends.  Unfortunately we only took pictures with a Polaroid camera and these are the best we have.
The year was 1971, can you tell?

The Bride and Groom

The kiss. Yes, we had a bestman and matron of honor.

Swapping Fun...

Fun! Fun! Fun! Swapping with friends is sooo much FUN!
Pam at Cloth and Creation and I decided to have a swap. She wanted one of my Tussie Mussies and I wanted some of her lovely vintage chenille fabric. I was excited to receive her package all the way from Australia.  Pam not only sent me the vintage fabric I wanted she also sent two gorgeous fabric tags that she made for me as well.
You are awesome Pam thank you!
Click on the Cloth and Creation name above to hop on over to visit Pam. She and her hubby just finished making a fantastic storage area in her studio space.
