A Week of Pinks!



It's another lovely Pink Saturday! Please visit Beverly's blog, How Sweet the Sound, for more Pink Blogging!

Last week, I made a comment about not being able to find a whole lotta pink in my world---it being a newly acquired taste and all. So, this past week, I challenged myself to see just how much pink I could find. Surprisingly, there was quite a bit! My kids even got in on the action and staged a couple of pink-themed photos. They're now fully aware of the existence and importance of Pink Saturday so I'm sure they'll be on the lookout for me as well!

It started at church Sunday morning. The kids were invited to come early as a sweet lady offered to make breakfast for them. I wish I would have gotten some close-ups but hopefully you can see the big plate of pink frosted Pop-Tarts and pink frosted donuts!


Here we have the Pied Cainan serenading Queen Avalon on his magic flute...


I had some friends coming Sunday evening so I picked up some flowers...Pink, of course!


Here I've displayed some on my mantle near my collection of Heidi books...



And here are some on a shelf where I keep some special things like my wedding picture, a vintage book, a vase I bought last week at an antique store, and a pillow my mom gave me...


When my very special company arrived, she gave me this Close To My Heart scrapbooking idea book. Do you love CTMH and need someone to purchase from? Let me know in the comment box below and I'll be glad to put her in touch with you!


I picked up a couple of flowers this week to plant in my yard. They were on clearance since our summer season is wrapping up here in the great PNW! Do you know what these are? I do and they remind me of home. They grow yellow and purple in the mountains above Baker City, Oregon.


How about these? This was a flower I'd not heard of before but I picked it up since it's supposed to bush out and grow really big!!


I found this sweet surprise one night when I went in to tell my girls goodnight... My little pink girl was too tired to wait for me!


Elisha and Avalon wanted to make sure I had enough pink in my post today!


So Selah and Strawberry Shortcake got in on the fun too!


Really, the more pink I see, the more I love it! I wonder what this week will bring??

Happy Pink Saturday!

  4. hi sarah-
    stopped by after you visited my blog, and i'm so glad i did. your family is beautiful and your pictures are too!
    loved the pink you found--i have MUCH similar pink in my house, with three daughters!
    i am SO green with envy over the idea that summer could be wrapping up ANYWHERE right now. we are so HOT in Louisiana--till November!
    enjoy the pink hunting--and those sweet children.
    oh, and i didn't know there were OTHER Heidi books! i need to hunt those down . . .how could i be a homeschooler and not know that? ;-)

  8. So sweet and remember- the family that blogs together, stays together!
    Your kids are adorable. Mine grew up.
    I'm like you, I'm not a pink lady like some of these wonderful women are, but the more I look around, the more pink I find!
    Have a great PS and thanks for stopping by my blog!
    Hugs- Tete

  11. Wow, you have found a ton of pink this week! So cute, with your little one asleep while she waited! I love the sleeping photos the best, they are so beautiful and so innocent while sleeping!

    No, I didn't paint my piano, it came white. I would be nervous to try painting one, but I bet it would turn out! Give it a try.
    Have a great Pink Week!

  12. Your children are just adorable! I loved all your pinks today!!! I wanted to thank you for joining as a follower and for your sweet comments. I left a message for you on my blog! I will also join you as a follower as soon as I get my blogger to allow me to do this, it's been messed up for a while now! I'm going to have to get someone to look at it, because I can't figure out what the problem is! Happy Pink Saturday... Blessings~~~ Daphne
