Pink Saturday!

Okay! This is s funny one, but my favorite Christmas Music, that Beverly of How Sweet the Sound has asked us to share is from the Peanuts Christmas Set. It is actually Snoopy and the Red not ask me why, but it does not feel like Christmas until I have heard this song! Then the one following it!! I'm a little weird I know!

Inside her matchbox was a fun little bookmark!And finally #11 we are caught up!! This one was from Miss Cami, wrapped in a beautiful music and glitter covered matchbox, a great little domino charm! I have already worn it as a necklace charm, but may have to add it to a charm bracelet in the future! Thank you!Then finally for Miss Beverly's Pink Saturday Post, we are sharing our favorite Christmas Movie! How could you not love "A Christmas Carol" told through the eyes of Mickey it is "Mickey's Christmas Carol" Anything with Mickey is a favorite of mine!
And if you have never seen Mickey's Twice Upon a Christmas,
you are missing a goodie!! The stories are all the same wonderful stories we have heard and loved, but told with a Disney twist! You gotta love them!!
Happy Pink Saturday!

Due to circumstances beyond my control....LOL. No, not too much turkey at Thanksgiving!
I can't wear my dress this Thursday night for the open house.
It's going to be a little too cold and I am going to have to be working more than I thought since one of our employees can't work!
PLUS...when I tried the dress on last night, the decolletage was a little lower than I remembered.
Which would be okay for going out to dinner with my hubby...but not for working at the shop! So anyways! Off to find another outfit!
Starting tomorrow I am participating in the A Swap for All Seasons blog along.
We did an Advent Matchbook Swap and I will be posting those over the next few days!
See you soon!!

Pink Saturday!

This has been a fun week! Kyle and I spent most of Friday morning at the Doctor's office! My poor little guy has a wicked cough and since last year he had walking pneumonia, we are always a little more careful when he starts coughing badly! Luckily everything came in negative! Nothing in the lungs, even though he sounds like he is coughing one up! So no real chance to find a fun Pink Saturday picture to share! But I am sure some of the other 100 plus participents will have lots to share! Join them all over at How Sweet the Sound with Miss Beverly!
