It's Already Pink Saturday? How Did That Happen????

I just can't believe how quickly this week zipped past. Whew........It seems as though it should only be Wednesday. Holy Cow!

I hope your week has been wonderful and full of fun.

I've done several projects so I'm pretty darn pleased with myself.

I've said before that since my Mum passed away I had lost all of my get-up-and-go........

By golly, I think I'm getting a bit back! Yippppeee!

This picture is from my darling daughter's house. Those little figurines are my very favorite things of hers. She's actually offered to give them to me because I love them so much.....but I must say.......... I love her more and it makes me happy to see them at her house.

I forgot to post this's from my birthday......YUM!!!! How pretty is that? Well, I have to admit, I actually didn't taste it. I gave up sugar (in March, I think) so my family ate it alllll up....

But it was pretty, wasn't it???

Roses, hydrangea and sweet peas from my yard. I love these roses, but they always get brown bits on you have any solutions to that problem???

Delish vintage.....gotta love it!

And, one of my favorite shelves here.....I do love a great tole tray.

And, I dried the roses from a bouquet for my Mum....I just had to hang onto them.

Ok my little dears. Please go check out Beverly at

She always has wonderful ladies with lots of YUMMY pinks. Lots of Saturday fun!!

And, I'd really love you to meet Rebecca @

You will love her little handmade shoes. Adorable!

Have a wonderful week little sweeties.

Huggies and Lovies,



  1. I always feel so welcomed when I visit you sweet Spencer! Your writing comes alive to me and I can see you in each word and happy sentence. You are a blessing to blogland!!! Anita

  2. This week flew by for me, too! That's always a good indication that I'm happy. It's those days that drag by that are a warning sign!

    Your bouquet is sooo pretty, Spencer! I don't know anything about growing roses though- just admiring them. ☺

    Love your Chintz plate. I am officially in love with Chintz! ♥

  3. Hi Spencer!
    Happy Pink Saturday!

  5. Lovely pink post.
    happy Pink Saturday!
    Enjoy your day.

  6. So glad I was not the hair style department. At least we all thought we were pretty cute back then. So hip! with the latest fashion.
    I too think those little figurines are quite precious and the last picture of the little shelf, trays, and memory roses...I think I am inspired for a change. Met Monday here I come.
    Delighted to hear you have had a little crafting bug. Just the right thing for a 'pick me up'
    Happy PINK PASSION ;-)

  7. Those hydrangeas are my favorites, too! And your trays! Lovely! Belated birthday wishes!

  8. I love that black shelf with the tole trays. You have it so artfully looks lovely. Happy belated birthday!!

  12. Hello, Spencer!
    Glad to hear that you have your mojo back!
    I always enjoy looking at your vignettes and such!
    I gave up sugar, too. But I use Splenda!

  13. Beautiful shelve, I love it.
    Happy Pink Saturday!!!

  14. What a charming post. I'd love to have a cup of tea with you. I'm so glad you are becoming more involved again. It's so hard to lose someone you love, but you must keep on enjoying the great beauty of life. I hope you are having a wonderful day.

  15. lovely pink post...have a wonderful weekend

  16. Oh Spencer, what a lovely post, Happy Belated Birthday to you. I am happy to hear that you are feeling so much better, life can be so cruel can't it. My mom is still with us and I can't even begin to imagine life without her. I absolutly love sweet peas. We can't grow them here in the desert, or even find them grown to purchase. There scent is pure heaven. The brown spots on your blooms could be from moisture, but I am not sure. Enjoy them anyway, nothing is perfect and they did bloom for you giving you their best. Your shelf is gorgeous and the pink is perfect, Happy Pink Saturday my sweet pinkie friend, Char

  17. You always have so many pretty pink things. I'm glad to hear your "get up and go" came back!

  18. Great Pink Post......
    Have a Wonderful Weekend!!

  19. Hi Spencer! I am so happy you are feeling energized again. Your daughter's figurines are so sweet - I can see why you love them. You know I love tole trays - and your flowers are GORGEOUS! Happy Pink Saturday!

  20. When the blossoms of summer begin to fade we can always count on Pink Saturday to bring a smile to our faces and to remind us that somewhere there are pastels and pretty things.

    Thanks so much for sharing this week. I wish you sunshine and lollipops today and always.

  23. Happy Pink Saturday Spencer.
    I so love this post. What pretties those are of your daughters. It gives you a reason to go and visit, to see them each time you go. It makes you happy. I love it.

    Your flowers are absolutely gorgeous. They look so pretty. I love that little shelf that you have with the hooks for tea cups and the flowers dried and hanging on the end. They are just beautiful honey, just beautiful. Thanks for sharing. Please stop by and let me share my pink post with you. Country hugs, Sherry

  24. Spencer, It has been ages since I visited. Shame on me! Happy Pink Saturday!

    I read on down and absolutely positively love the ottoman slipcover. I want to recover everything in my house in white and there is so much! Thanks for the tips.

  25. Lovely Pinks Spencer!
    Happy Pink Saturday!
    Hugs, Lisa

  26. All your pink things are lovely. The flowers from your garden are beautiful. What a pretty pink color you have on the wall with the tole tray.

  27. Hi Spencer,
    I enjoyed your beautiful pink Saturday post. I love that you said your daughter was willing to give you the figurines. She must be a special girl.
    Your bouquet of roses and hydrangeas is so pretty. The little brown spots are thrips and my roses have them some years. They had them this year. Sometimes I use a systemic on the bushes to control them. Sometimes I just let the little bugs have at them.

  28. Hi Spencer! My gosh there just isn't enough time in a DAY!.. But I know I'm not the first one to say THAT! Love all your pinks!.. especially your shelf, and your beautiful flowers (spots and all)!!! I also LOVE your new foot stool in your previous post! I just got done folding laundry, and the crock pot is fired up and running!.. I have to throw some laundry into the dryer, and THEN I'm going to TRY to put up a few more Fall decorations. I am such a SLOW POKE with the fall decorating! I don't know WHEN I will get it all DONE! (0; Wish me luck! ~tina
