Pink Saturday Surprises

A few pretty PINK treats came my way unexpectedly last week. My
Auntie Desert Rose gave me a gift especially for my Pink Saturday
post. A set of blank notecards, a notepad, a poppie book to put pictures
in and the cutest little birdie necklace, which I have already worn
twice. So I'm sending out a big thank you to my Auntie and to my
Cousin for helping her pick them out. Who knew you could receive
gifts just for doing Pink Saturday!!!

Our Pink Saturday is brought to us by Beverly at How Sweet The
Sound. She graciously takes time out of her schedule each week to
pull all this PINK together for us. Be sure to visit her site to find
the other links to pinkness. Beverly asked that we feature a fellow
PINK Saturday follower each week...

I'm choosing to share with all of you Martha's Favorites. She's new to
Pink Saturday, but not to me. I've been following her blog for a few
months now and she always has lots of pretties to see and fun words
to share, not to mention an adorable Grandson that makes a frequent

I had only been following Martha for a little while when I commented
on her milkglass collection and she wrote that she wanted to send me a
piece of her own. I was taken completely by surprise at the generous
spirit of this kind lady. Shortly after, this beautiful milkglass vase
arrived in the mail, all decked out in it's own...


What a beautiful gift from a beautiful lady! Thank you so much Martha.
I'm sorry it's taken so long to get this posted, but I was trying to save it
for something special and nothing is more special than PINK! So to
everyone out there that reads this post, be sure to hop over to
Martha's Favorites and tell her hello. You'll be glad you did, but I
can't guarantee she'll be sending you all gifts too, unfortunately, LOL!

I hope you all have a safe and happy holiday weekend.
