Alice Land and the Adventures of PINK SATURDAY

Alice Land and the Adventures of Pink Saturday




Alice had read the stories of wonderland and bunnies leading down the rabbit hole. She had read Alice Through The Looking Glass through and through. She longed for the mirror with Miss Bunny Surprise leading the way, so that Alice would surely find Spring.

Alas, poor poor Alice was trapped in a land with the ground covered in snow. She called her home Snow Land, and she was....Alice in Snow Land.

Although there was no sight of Spring for what seemed like an eternity, she heard that Pink Saturday might lead her to Spring. Yes, a girl named Bev from How Sweet The Sound could surely lead her to Spring.

So, bright and early Alice got up and went to the doorway that leads to Pink Saturday in search of Spring.

She entered the door and on the other side Miss Bunny Surprise was waiting to show her the way.

Oh the wonder that she saw...

Tales of Spring,

Everything pink imaginable,

And then she looked and the land of Pink Saturday had exploded into a wonderland of pure magic like it always does. Postcards of pinks ready to send you into enchantment.

Alice almost didn’t mind having to go back to Snow Land. Because she knew that no matter how much snow would arrive in the weeks to come, she could always go back next week and be enchanted by all of her friends in Pink Saturday Land.

Alice wants to send you there...to the land of magic in every Pink Saturday post. So please follow Miss Bunny Surprise HERE and all weekend long you can visit the many posts for PINK SATURDAY.

The song for this post is Some Enchanted Evening. The first time I heard this song I was just a little girl listening to my mother's records. Then it was listening to my transistor radio while walking to High School.

spring-blossom-happy-pink-saturday Whether I am watching the musical, South Pacific or the wonderful Only You staring Marisa Tomei, this song by Ezio Pinza leads me to the land of Dream Land. What I wouldn't give to see the new South Pacific on Broadway.

Your Alice is beautiful Karen! Oh how I long to go through the door to Spring land myself! It is supposed to be in the 40's this weekend and I can hardly contain myself. After a month near zero, those kind of temps seem like spring!

What a beautiful Pink Sat Story! Not only do you feature two of my favorites, bunnies and Beverly, but you also mention one of my all time favs, South Pacific!! I will share with you (and only you) that as a child, my dad packed us up (3 kids and my mom) and headed to the "drive in to see South Pacific" because it was a "war movie"---he missed the "musical" part some how! I clearly recall hanging over the the back of the front seat of the car, mesmerized by the wonderful songs and my dad snoring up a storm in the front!!
Happy PSat!! Dana
