This Week's Pinks: Pink Saturday

Hello and Happy Saturday! Please join me for Pink Saturday with Beverly at How Sweet the Sound. There are lots of great pinks out there to enjoy in Bloggyland today!

You may remember that a few weeks ago (ok, maybe it was a couple months ago...I don't remember!) I posted a picture of my daughter, Lynzie, and her doll wearing the shawl that Lynzie had sewn for her. (You can find that one here) Well, today I'd like to show off the shawl she made for the doll's best friend!

This is Elizabeth Cole of the American Girl Doll Collection. She was Lynzie's first American Girl doll.

She's awfully proud...and I'm proud of her!

Another subject I've been featuring lately is BookCrossing. You can click the link in my "labels" list to the right if you're not familiar with that. Here are a couple more packages that I've received from friends for our annual gift exchange. This is a package that I received today from BookCrosser miumaumou of Finland:

She sent a pretty pink silk scarf, a couple of bookmarks (one is pink), some Celtic stickers, a postcard and two candy bars...and one of THOSE is pink--awesome, eh?

A couple days ago I received this package from BookCrosser Ossiefry of Portugal:

She sent a kitty card (pink), some BookCrossing book labels, a BIG chocolate mint candy bar (pink again!), some tea, and a handmade pink flower keychain! So sweet!

Every now and then, I like to feature Pink bloggers that I am extraordinarily impressed with! This week, I'd like to introduce you to two. First is Roselle from Seaside Rose Creations. She makes the most gorgeous things and sells them in her Etsy store! I was particularly drawn to this beautiful set of salt shakers that she "shabbied up" so prettily! She found them all rusted at Goodwill and look at them now!

Be sure and stop by her blog, as well as her Etsy store, to see her talent!

Secondly is Lisa from Belles Roses Romantiques who made these really cute pumpkins:

What I especially love about this display (aside from the glitter and general romance of it all) is the little candy corns she made from clay...how sweet is that!! Please visit Lisa at her blog to see more of her creativity.

Hope everyone has a great Pink Saturday!!

  11. Your pinks are all so cute today. The picture of your daughter and her dolls is so cute. My daughter is too old for dolls now but I still think they're cute.

  12. Hi Sarah,
    Thanks for stopping by my blog on Saturday. As you can see...I'm a bit behind...but so happy to find you now!

    First of all, I can't believe how adorable that shawl is. I don't sew so I am especially impressed.

    And thank you for introducing me to Lisa. (I already know of...and love Roselle's blog:) I'll be sure to visit.

    Lastly, I am in awe of you homeschooling 7! I have 2 I homeschool and I pray every day I'm doing good enough!


  13. Lynzie, these are great shawls for your sweet dolls! ...I'm just now catching up on some blog hopping and came across this post of your Mom's from last week. :)

  14. Thank you so much for featuring me on your PS post, I am so very honored. I've been really bad about getting on the computer as I have been recovering from a bout of pneumonia. I'm doing much better now and trying hard to get caught up on everything. I have a great new project I'm working and trying really hard to have it done for this Saturday. I love your blog!!

  15. Such an adorable site! Just loved looking at the kids and their fun times.


Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a comment! I read each one of them and love to respond back to those who visit! Please consider signing up for EMAIL NOTICES so you'll have a reminder of our weekly HOMEMAKING PARTY---and more! Have a wonderful day!

Mrs. Sarah Coller
