COTTAGE COLORS BLOG PARTY "Creamy Whites"

Good afternoon Peeps! Today I'm playing catch up and joining the Cottage Colors Blog Party and showing you a taste of creamy "Whites" the color for this month! These sweet peeps are sitting on my living/dining room coffee table under a cloche. I removed the cloche so you could see them better. They sit on a tarnished silver platter that we received as a gift back in 1965 from a dear friend that was doing a project with my late DH. The 2 very decorative birds I picked up about a year ago at Michaels and the vintage planter I purchased awhile back from Lynn of the The Vintage Nest, and it is by Lefton. Such a sweet arrangement it makes with the shredded packing paper.

HAPPY PINK SATURDAY & HALLOOO KITTEEY "HELLO KITTY"

Happy Pink Saturday to all of you Pink Peeps!  Short of time and Pinks for the moment we decided to model our "Hello Kitty" PJ's and the rose Grams found for the bathroom (at Micheal's - $1 bin) that is a sponge for the bath. Pretty cool and very Pink. I just had a bath with mine and I have one to take home. My new PJ's are from TJ Maxx,  I'm really not sure I want to have my picture taken since I really want to go in and make my craft project, but in the end I did when Grams said I could use the Googly Wiggly eyes that Jiggle on my project. I bet Daniella of Layers of Creativity would like to have a pair of my Hello Kitty  PJ's, so that is who we are featuring today, go give her a visit, she loves everything "Hello Kitty",  I say it like Grams spelled it the other way, Grams just smiles! I'm sending you all some Pinky love and smiles this Pink Saturday and letting you know if you want to see some more fun Pinks, go visit sweet Beverly at  How Sweet the Sound  and have a fun filled Pinky weekend, Hugs from Me and Halloo Kitteey! Grams too!

Update from "My Little World" http://suzeeez.blogspot.com/    "Hi Marilou,
 
   What a feeling to know so many people are thinking of me. I love you all. Please tell everyone that I am ok ...... I was hit by the tornado but I'm ALIVE and so is my home.
Soooooooooooo much destruction all around me and my garden is no more......for now. Many houses around me have been reduced to rubble or have been marked for demolition! 
But ....... I am safe. Thank you soooooooooooooooooooooo much for your thoughts and for checking on me. I am writing from the church in town right now which is a place now full of volunteers and they have food and groceries and internet and any help we need. I might not have internet for awhile at home but I'll be back !
                                                                                                                                                       Lots of love and hugs, Sue

HAPPY PINK SATURDAYS PINKY PEEPS! Come visit Molly and Boot

Happy Pink Saturday to all of you Pink Peeps! Did I tell you the story about the Mouse and the Boot? Well, it all started over the hankies, and yep the Mouse, named Molly has a love for Pink Hankies and the Boot came along and wanted to get in on the Hankie action. Now Molly the Mouse, being a clever little gal wasn't likin' that a bit. They all live in the bathroom cupboard and Molly got there first. Being the oldest Molly didn't want to share and was trying to give that old shoe the Boot. Hence old shoes name became Boot and Molly consented to loaning Boot one Hankie just for the photo shoot, guess Boot will have to get her own set of Pink Hankies, maybe next week! Molly decided to share her Hankies with all of you and hopes you love them as much as she does. Now don't forget to sign up to enter the Giveaway which ends next Friday and the winner will be announced on next Pink Saturdays Post. Click on this link and be a follower and that is it!  Giveaway Post  Now you can go and visit all the other Pink Peeps and Party Pink over at Beverly's How Sweet the Sound
