Pink Saturday

Hi everyone and welcome to Pink Saturday! I hope you all enjoyed your week. I have had a very busy week so I don't have a lot of pink to share with you today.

I will begin my post with some pink votive holders which I don't think I shared with you before. I thought they would look festive in the middle of the wreath which I'm working on. I have had these for quite a long time and I bring them out every once in a while when I'm feeling 'in the pink!'

Last week I showed you a little Christmas tree {you can see it in the post below} and I mentioned that I was working on a wreath to match. I always keep wreaths and Christmas decorations because I often change them up from year to year. I removed all the previous decorations and started with a clean wreath. This wreath has some nice snowy tips.

Pink and gold wired ribbon, a paddle of wire, sparkly pink hydrangea blossoms, silver and white balls, and some picks make up the embellishments which will be added to the wreath. I plan to do a centerpiece as well.
And because I've had a busy week, I didn't get my wreath finished. I will just give you a little peek at what I'm doing. Bow's made and some flowers are on but that's it so far. This pink will have to do for today.

I do have a little someone however who took a trip to the pumpkin patch this past week. My youngest grandson Zachary who is two. Do his rosy pink cheeks count?

This is my grandson Brent who is celebrating his 7th birthday this weekend. We had just taken him back home after eating supper out and shopping for something special for his birthday. He is surrounded by his Tec Dek toys which were part of his present. Happy Birthday, Brent!
Thank you for stopping by for a visit. Since I love Christmas so much, you will likely be seeing a lot of Christmasy stuff between now and December 25th.

Do you love the colour pink? Then please take some time to visit our lovely hostess Beverly and her party of pinkies
Wishing you all a beautiful pink weekend!

Sharing from my heart~ Sandi

What a beautiful share. I love the pinks you shared today and that wreath is gorgeous around the votive candles. I love their pink color. Just perfect for any occasion or the holidays coming up. You did a beautiful job.

And just tell me who would not adore those pink little cheeks of that sweet boy? Actually both sweet boys. They are priceless photos sweetie, and I thank you for sharing with me. So precious.

Hope you have a wonderful Halloween with the kiddies. Many hugs and much love, Sherry
