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!!

Hi Jenny, Happy Pink Saturday! I'm not sure if we've met, but I do shop at Suzanna's! I've followed your blog for a few months now and get the news letter. It was the first place I saw Pink Saturday! Thanks for all the great work you do on the shop. I'll be out there again soon, saving my pennies! Hugs, Lisa

Holly said...

Hi, Jenny! Fun stuff! I only did one swap this Spring and I'm saving mine to open on Easter morning! ☺ ♥

Lynn@ The Vintage Nest said...

Happy belated Pink Saturday Jenny. You had some fun swap stuff. I haven't been able to do a swap since last Fall due to time constraints but I am almost ready now for one. About..the pink chairs. None at my house either but if I had a beach house I would put one of those chairs in every room. :)

How fun! I love all of your treats! Don't you just love swaps and Pink Saturdays, of course!

Loretta said...

M.L. @ The House of Whimsy said...

oohh...such lovely swap items. Lucky girl. But what I really loved was the precious expression on your son's face in the post below. What a cutie!!!

Mary said...

Loads of loot and bling Jenny - you lucky, but deserving gal!!!

Will try to stop by today - meeting friends from Louisburg at Cafe Capistrano for lunch!

Julie said...

I loved the swap treasures you sent me....I got so excited....that I forgot to take a picture. I love love love those napkins!!!

Hi Jenny, I have a golden retriever and everyone knows they are famous for shedding. Ben put on an extra layer for this past winter and I am starting to see the fur puff balls around the house. The ONLY reason they aren't under my bed is because he is not allowed upstairs. :)
