pink is poer buttons and baubles 2Today is Pink Saturday at Bev's place, How Sweet The Sound. I love Pink Saturday because so many people are celebrating pink through their pink posts. So, if you stop by HERE, you will find wonderful pink inspiration today.

Spring BouquetBev has been hosting this event for a very long time now, and did you know that she e-mails us a reminder each week, and then she takes the time to put together the looooooooooooooooong list of all of us participating on her Saturday post. She puts so much effort each week into creating this PINK madness for all of us to enjoy. Thank you Miss Bev.

Sigh, dreamy moments painting roses in journals and listening to Johnny Mathis.

Don't forget your crown The song for this post is Gina,

nce upon a time I was fifteen years old when this song was on the top ten list. I loved sipping egg creams at the candy store with my friends, dancing with six foot five tall Jimmy Rendall at the Jr. High dance and listening to this song so many times that I wore out the record. Sigh... I might have worn out the 45 but I never tire of recalling the chapter that this song bookmarks for me.

Karen, you always have such inspiring, uplifting posts, always filled with exquisite paintings and photos. Thank you for enriching our lives. I love your bluebird, and who does not adore pink roses. When I was 16 I had a crush on the school bad boy. My song at that time was, "He's a Rebel". I belive that most of the times in our lives, we can put a song to. Hugs, Kathleen

What beautiful photos.....absolutly gorgeous

Lana said...

Wowzers! What a fantastic blog you have.

About three years ago my husband took me to hear Johnny Mathis in concert. Johnny was waaaay down there on stage singing his heart out for our listening pleasure. However the lady seated directly behind me was singing her heart out right in my ear. Let's just say we heard more of her tuneless renditions than we heard of Johnny himself. I told my husband that next time we need to request seats in the "no singing" section. LOL

I love the card with the angel in the gold dress. My poor eyes can't make out the sentiment. Would someone please tell me what it says? Thanks so much!

Happy Pink Saturday! All the best, Lana
