Pink Saturday! 3-28-09

Happy Pink Saturday and welcome to everyone visiting from How Sweet the Sound!
Beverly has about 150 to 175 participants this week! I am going to be on the computer for HOURS visiting all the great blogs! If you are looking for a way to get your blog noticed, participating in some of these fun "days" is a great way to start! So head over to Bev and visit some fun Pinkness in blogland!
This week I am feeling much better, mostly in part to all the goodies I have gotten recently!
I was in two separate swaps and got PINK goodies in both! Julie from Shabbywears was my partner for the "Winter Basics and Baubles"
swap hosted by Foxgloves, Fabric and Folly! I got the best package! The theme was something basic for your kitchen along with some bling for you!

Miss Julie knew that my kitchen is blue with red accents, so she sent me some great red and white towels, a red spatula, red apron, doilies and PINK jewelry! I have gotten so many compliments on these two pair of pink earrings, it is amazing!

Thank you Miss Julie! The funny part is Julie sent me the

same cupcake cups that I bought for my next partner below!

My next partner was Valerie from YarniGras for the "Vintage Spring Sweetness"

swap hosted by A Swap for All Seasons !

Look at all the loot!! The name of the swap really says it all!

You can't tell by this picture but each of those flowers on this beautiful apron, handmade by Valerie, have a pink middle, and the edging and ties are in a soft pink! Not sure if Valerie meant to do this, but the state bird of NC is the Cardinal.Very Cool!!!

These are hand made cupcake toppers with vintage Easter pictures...LOTS of PINK!

PINK button notecards!

Some of the cutest little chicks that I placed in their pearl necklace nest!

A beautiful vintage book of spring flowers, some chocolate,

and some FLYING PIG bookmarks!! (Their picture did not come out)

So thank you to Miss Valerie too! Hope you girls liked your boxes!!

Feeling better!!

Thank you for all your sweet comments about feeling better!!
After staying in bed all day Saturday I do feel more like my old self,
but the following was the best medicine of all!
"Momma? Are you feeling better yet?"
"Will this help?"How could I not feel better?

Hope you all are doing well!! And get flowers from your favorite guy!!


Jenny (and Kyle)

Craft Night!

Saturday night I had a crafty girls night!
It was just my new friend Becca and I at her house, but it was so much fun!
I was so excited I forgot my camera!!
We ate and talked and played with crafty stuff.
We both have lots of friends, but none who are interested in the same crafty stuff we are.
We had a BLAST!!
I finished my banner I was making Saturday night and thought I would share it!
I used vintage sheet music, vintage crepe paper, vintage wallpaper,
new ribbon, sparkle tags, letters and ribbon fluff!
Sorry for the bad pics!! We are having wonderful
weather around here and have been spending time outside!
Hope your weather is as nice!!

Enjoy and I will be around to visit your sites as soon as I can!
