Autumn In My Neighborhood

It's Time For
Pink Saturday
Halloween
Annual Check-Ups
Enjoying Autumn
Thanking Friends
Beverly at How Sweet The Sound is hosting our Pink Saturday Autumn Party. This week the theme is Breast Cancer Awareness.
My little witch is sitting in her pink jack-o-lantern to remind all the ladies over 35 to schedule an appointment for a mammogram.
My appointment is scheduled for the first week in November. 
My wonderful friend Cindy Adkins at Whimsical Musings and Angels At My Door entered a Breast Cancer Awareness Give-Away hosted by Raquel at Nola Spice Designs for a pretty pink pearl ring. When Cindy found out that she had won she asked Raquel permission to give the ring to me because I am a cancer survivor.  I am a 5 year survivor of uterine cancer. You don't hear as much about the other cancers that effect women and there isn't much in the way of celebrating and campaigning for research money for the other cancers. Each cancer has it's own color ribbon. Peach is the color for uterine cancer, a very close cousin to pink. I like pink very much and I do celebrate and support breast cancer research. I hope they find a cure for breast cancer and from that cure I hope it leads them to find the cure for all other cancers as well.  The ring is also a reminder to me of the awesome blog friends I have made. Thank you Cindy and Raquel for my beautiful handcrafted ring. I love it and it will help me to celebrate life and it will serve as a reminder to get my annual tests. 

Now for some pretty autumn shots from my neighborhood.

  1. I pray they find a cure for cancer of all types too, Linda. I thought so much of you as I was writing my Pink Saturday post which I posted early to give more coverage.

    I love the ring, and you will NOT believe something that came to me before I ever saw the one you're wearing with the clock design. Will share soon.

    Blessings and hugs,
    Marcia

  2. Your ring is beautiful! That was such a sweet thing for Cindy to do - she's one of the most thoughtful people I know (I can't think of anyone better to share a name with!) So happy to hear you've reached the five-year cancer free mark!! I enjoyed your autumn photos, as well.
    Hugs, Cindy

  3. That was such a touching and meaningful gesture by Cindy, she is such a sweet and kind person! Congratulations on passing the 5 year mark Linda. You are correct, we need to find a cure to all of these horrific cancers, and awareness is 1 of the best ways. Thank you for sharing.

  4. Linda, congratulations on your complete well being and good health! How sweet of Cindy to give you the ring...it's lovely! Such a blessing will be multiplied.

    Thank you for visiting, and your sweet comment. I had to hastily make the card, as I started late in the day, but I'm glad I did. Then I actually did a sketch that I'm going to use to illustrate a Halloween song I did years ago. I'll post it for Halloween.

    May you have a lusciously divine day full of peace and creativity,

    P.S. I like the music on your site...soothing Celtic style.

  6. Lovely pink and fall presentation. In Texas another reminder the first week in November we have to change the clocks again. I do not like it.

  13. Well...you just did me a HUGE favor! I just realized that as of next month(when I turn 35) I will officially be of an age where I can get a mammogram! It always seemed like it was so far away, and something that I didn't have to think about. And now here it is...35 years old and time to schedule my first test!
    Thank you my dear :)
