Happy Birthday Pink Saturday!

What a terrific occasion for us all to celebrate, the event that
introduced a lot of us to new friends and new blogs and brings us
all back together every week. What a stroke of genius Beverly had
when she thought to bring those that love PINK together. To me
Pink Saturday is something I look forward to every week, even if
I'm trying to figure out what to post about at the last minute.

I give to you this picture below, an optical illusion. There are
two images, which do you see...

The graceful, delicate young lady or do you see the old woman,
aged with time, but needed for her experience, her wisdom, her
truths. I think both represent where Pink Saturday has started
and where she is destined to go. She is still in her infancy, fresh,
innocent, but with her passing of the years, she will gain all of the
wisdom, insight, stories, and truths that WE will tell here, and she
will hold a well-spring of knowledge. She'll hold the knowledge WE
impart upon her. What a gift we share with each other every
Pink Saturday, our treasures, our passions, families and pets,
we willingly welcome each other into our homes to come and
visit a spell, placing our trust in each other.

So I give a heartfelt Thank You to Beverly, our beautiful hostess
from How Sweet The Sound, and to Pink Saturday for giving us
all a LOVELEIGH place to gently land into Pinkness!

Great, insightful post, cousin! ;) I remember that optical illusion picture from when I was a teenager!
I'm not participating in Pink Saturday this weekend and I miss not posting for it, even though I just started in the last month....well, I guess today's photog blog post is kind of a continuation of last weekend's Pink Saturday, LOL!

I enjoyed your post evry much. I saw this image in black and white when I was in nursing school dinosaurs ago.
I can and could only see the pretty girl immediately but I love your insight...our instructor only taught the good verses bad...evil verse good. You should have taught that part of our class.
This colored image is very unique.
Looking forward to your other posts.
hugs and blessings

Hi Sares...

Just wanted to stop by to say thank you for your visit to my place and for leaving me such a sweet note about my new pink china!

Well my friend, what a lovely birthday tribute to Beverly and Pink Saturday!!! I couldn't have said it any better!!! By the way...I studied and studied that picture...all I could see was the young woman! It's funny though, I've seen this picture before and could always see the old woman as well...but not this time! That really puzzles me! Hehe!!! Thanks for pickin' my brain this mornin', my friend! Hehe!

Have a wonderful weekend!

There's just something about Pink Saturday that brings our the sweetness in people. Beverly sure knew what she was doing when she brought her concept to the world of blog.

Your offering for this FIRST PINK SATURDAY ANNIVERSARY is wonderful! This is the one day of the week where I can totally indulge my passion without spending a dime!

I've seen that before and I always see the lovely woman...not the hag. Uhm, what does that say about me☺

Wishing your and those you love a special weekend filled with sunshine and family fun!

Charlene said...

I saw the young girl. But, it was a cool post! Thanks for visiting me on Pink Saturday. Have a great week.

Beverly said...

Well, I saw the old woman, and my husband saw the young woman. We had to show each other - maybe that is why we are a great team.

I love this post, and the value of each side. Thank you for sharing this philosophy.

Happy Pink Saturday.

Happy Pink Saturday (finally). I had hayfever which has turned into sinus, so due to headaches I haven't been online since Friday! I do apologise for being so late (and I somehow don't think I'll be doing much visiting this week)
