HAPPY PINK SATURDAY "IT'S A WONDERFUL LIFE"

A VERY SPECIAL HANDMADE ANGEL
"JESUS" is THE REASON For The SEASON 
 Blessings and Happy Pink Saturday to all of you! As we share in posting our favorite movie I would say the one that comes to my mind is "It's A Wonderful Life" a very old movie classic. It may not be my Very favorite but it reminds me of the reason for the Season and it is a wonderful life and all need to do is slow down and take time for the people that we love including our families. I'm reminded once again how fragile life is and how important each and everyone of you are even if just in blogland. Life might not be exactly how we would like it to be but we are all connected. Thank you all for helping me reach 100 followers and just following me in general as you are special to me. The Pink Angel that hangs on my tree was made for me by my best friend many years ago when we were "oh so young". The Nativity that I purchased when I was with my Mom (Mom bought one too) when I was barely 20 years old. I have now been putting up the same Nativity for 48 years. Christmas comes and goes but the Reason for the Season remains the same. Today I'm linking up with Beverly from How Sweet The Sound so you can visit all the Pinkies for Pink Saturday. I will be announcing the winner of the Giveaways this weekend so make sure I have your email so your packages can ship by Monday! No I haven't drawn the names yet, as we still have a few more hours PST. Good Luck and Holiday Blessings to all!

HAPPY PINK SATURDAY


Happy Pink Saturday everybody! I hope you had a fun filled week full of holiday preparation, last minute creating, fun filled decorating, shopping and making your to do list! No cookie recipe from me this week as I had this sweet little project to finish. The three Charlotte fairies were getting restless to be nestled in this filigree goose egg of floral and snow glittered goodness, those fairies just love lots of sparkle! So here we are getting ready to post on Etsy and I thought you all might like to have an advance peep! Don't forget to visit all the yummy Pink goodness at Beverly's How Sweet the Sound and make you round of visits!
