Hey Girlies! It's Pink Saturday! YIPPPEEE!

Oh, how I love Pink Saturday...isn't it wonderful to get all "filled up" with that glorious color?

I always think my house is so pink until I try to take pix and it seems like nothing's pink.

Oh yes....are those the cutest little pink girlie shoes EVER? I so wish I had these for my little girl back in the day. They're the happiest little shoes.

I actually bought them at the Goodwill! I never look at shoes, but was passing by on my way to check out the house-ie stuff and these caught my eye. Pink AND sparkles??? Oh yes! There must have been at least 10 perfect pairs of little girlie know, the kind that make you say ahhhhhhhhhhh........?? Now, I have no use whatsoever for these, but they made me happy, so what the heck....bring 'em on home, right? :-)

I would have kept them forever if they belonged to my little girl!

I'm sorry this picture is a bit blurry.....

Don't you just love that?

Bidden or unbidden God is always present.

Comforting and at the same time it makes me think before I say things.... :-)

Printed on cute little paper and framed. I actually have lots of little things like this around the cottage. One of my dear friends always says "And God is still in control" I have one that says that too. :-)

My sweet Mum bought this little, tiny dish for me.

Isn't it darling?

Girlies! I'm so grateful to you.

My purpose for beginning this blog was to help deal with the grief after the death of my Mum last December.

My Mum was always the one who was most thrilled with all my little projects. She'd have to hop in her little red Honda and zip on over to see what I was making.

I've been putting off the re-doing of the den because projects were so connected to her praise.

Finally, I thought I'd just start............get the fabric out and get with it.....

I want you to know how much your sweet comments have meant to me.

You've cheered me on and your encouragement helped me jump in. And, I've been so inspired by all of your lovely homes, so envious of your thrifty finds and enamored my your fabulous projects.

I've said it many times, but this is why I love the Blog World so much. Where else could you find so many fabulous women? They don't know you and maybe you'll never meet but they really care about you and don't we all need a bit more of that?

So.............I've finished SEVEN pillows and the chair and stool slipcovers!

Just a second, I have to pat myself of the back.... :-)

God Bless every single one of you.

You are precious to me.

Please don't miss all of the other yummy pinkalicious things!

Beverly over at www.howsweetthesound.typepad is hosting this delish event so zip right on over there. She's asked us to actually put the Pink Saturday post for our link, but I still don't know how to do that. I'm ever so sorry.

Have a wonderful and safe weekend.

Hugs to all of you!


  1. Hi Spencer,
    Thank you for visiting my blog, and I have enjoyed visiting yours. I’m sorry about the loss of your beloved mother, I see from your writings she was a treasure. These girly and sparkly pink slippers are adorable and what a wonderful thrifty find. I noticed you are in the Pacific Northwest; I lived in the Portland area for 7 years. I loved Cannon beach and enjoyed spending weekend afternoons there often.

  2. Good Morning Spencer, Those are the cutest pink slippers! I also love the dainty dish that your Mom gave to you. I started my blog when my mom passed away last Sept. and the blog friends I have made have been such a joy and comfort to me also. Enjoy your weekend.

  3. Spencer, Love the little pink ballet shoes and they look so cute sitting on the plate of buttons.

    You are correct, there are a world full of wonderful ladies and gents out there in bloggerville.

    Have a great pink day.

  4. Hello precious!
    I adore your pink pix! Those baby shoes are so sweet; they remind me of a pair of point ballet shoes I have...I shall use them on my next pink post! The little dish mum gave you is sweet as well. You have a beautiful day my friend, Anita

  5. Hello precious!
    I adore your pink pix! Those baby shoes are so sweet; they remind me of a pair of point ballet shoes I have...I shall use them on my next pink post! The little dish mum gave you is sweet as well. You have a beautiful day my friend, Anita

  6. Wonderful pinks today, Spencer. And those shoes are quite charming. Just perfect for a little bloggerville dream date! Imagine...
    I know your sweet mum was someone really special because I can hear her encouraging spirit through your stories. Looking forward to seeing the den do over! Be sure and share ;-)

  7. Good morning sweet Spencer, You got me with this post, honey. My Mom was also the one most excited about all that I did, and oh how I miss her encouragement, hugs and all!

    I am absolutely delighted that you are on a roll gal!! Praise God...He pulls us through!
    Can't wait to see everything! You do such lovely work!

    And the little pink shoes...adorable...but what I like even more than the pink shoes is that they are nestled in a dish of buttons! That special creativity of Spencer!! So enchanting!

    Have a wonderful weekend, sweetie!
    Love and hugs,

  8. Hi Spencer. I have been a little MIA lately. I have been so blasted busy lately.

    I am so glad to hear that you are working on your projects. God is lovingly guiding you along.

    Take care. "Talk" to you soon. Hugs

  9. Beverly challenged us to visit a new blog and I picked yours! I am so glad I did. Those pink shoes look precious in the bowl of buttons, but they do seem to need a little girl :) I like your "bidden or unbidden" sign..a good reminder. And I bet He is telling your mom about your progress :) Enjoyed my visit..Happy Pink Saturday!

  10. I totally understand, Spence! And here- let me pat your back, too! Your mom would be so proud of you and like to think that she still is! ♥

  11. I always love your pinks. Today I really love your words. I could feel just how you feel about blogging and I loved it.

  12. What a lovely post! Those pink sparkly little girl shows are so precious!!

    Happy PiNk SaTurDaY!


  13. Your pink shoes are DARLING! I have a one year old and boy, my Goodwill did not have those in there! :0) Your MUM is SO SWEET. I just saw her photo. I love the fact she had to see your projects. I hope my daughter and I have that kind of friendship someday. Sweet sweet post you made today!

  14. Hi Spencer,
    What a very pink and sweet post. I think those pink little shoes are adorable. I would have brought them home too! Thank you so much for sharing and have a wonderful Pink Saturday.

  18. Love your pink shoes, sweetie! What a charming Post about the things you love. So glad to hear you're getting onto the den redo....your momma would be so proud of you.

    I've been in and out for many days as I'm working on a new space at an Antique Market. SO much fun, but WORK! So...that's why I've been absent a bit.

    Love to are precious to me.

    Love, Rebecca

  19. Winter is just around the corner in my neck of the woods so Pink Saturday is even more meaningful for me because I won't see my garden bloom again until at least May of next year!

    Thanks so much for your participation this week. It brightened my day☺ I, too, would have kept those dance shoes if they had belonged to my child. Don't know why some folks don't treasure things like that...

    Wishing you a wonderful weekend filled with happiness surrounded by those you love.

  20. Hello
    Thank you for stopping by and saying hello, it is so nice to meet you.
    My you have been busy, whish I could get the lead out but lately it seems I am walking through mud trying to get some projects done! Need to get focused.

  21. I loved those little pink shoes!This blog thing is pretty amazing the support and love you feel from people. You will always be special though because you left me my first comment ever! Have a super weekend. Hugs Traci

  22. Hello preciousness! THanks for coming to Stillwater! OH YOU WOULD FLIP AT ALL THE ANTIQUE STORES! I am going to do a Christmas post of Stillwater with all the antique stores. You have yourself a lovely Sunday!!! Anita

  23. Hi Spencer,
    I'm happy and truly honored that you had the time to stop by my blog. Those little sparkling pink shows are just sooooooooooo darling and your arrangements is just sooooooooo perfect. I'm glad I've had the chance to meet you in blog land.
    I guess deciding to have an own post has for me too been a way to come to terms with the death of ky mom last year. she was so proud of me and always encouraging. I must say that most of what I have been able to accomplish in life and at work is thank to her constant support and admiration for me and for those she'd call talents. So let me take the opportunity to pay a little tribute and send up to heaven a big THANK YOU to all those marvelous mothers that are no longer with us.
    Your blog is super cute and I'll come and visit often - already a blog friend.

  24. Oh you busy little bee! I loved you chair! Those shoes are amazing! So are all your Pinks! I am so glad I got to visit with you today!
    Hugs, Lisa

  25. Hi Spencer, you always have the cutest posts. I too love those little pink shoes and think they look great just where they are. I bet the little girl that wore them, loved them too, Happy Pink Saturday my blogging buddy, take care and have a great week, Char

  26. Those wee pink shoes are adorable...I am so happy you were of the mind to rescue them.

    7 pillows, a chair cover and stool cover? I would say that you have been one very busy lady!

  27. Happy Pink Saturday, Spencer. Your post is delightful, and it is the perfect way to begin my day. And, you're right we do care about you - and each other.

    I think so often of how much I will miss my mother when she is gone. I am an only child, and she has been living with us for over nineteen years.

    You know, I think I would have had to bring home those little pink shoes, too. They make my heart smile.

  28. So cute those little pink shoes.
    Happy Pink Saturday!!!

  29. Hey, Spencer...okay, tears in my eyes because your story reminds me how wonderful the blogging world of friends is to us! You have now taken inspiration and passed it on. What a wonderful circle, right? I am redoing my dining room because I have my table in it now! (that's a whole story) I've sorted PS names alphabetically this week and am now up to the "S" (of course!) Happy Pink Saturday a little bit late!

  30. Oh those shoes are so very pretty, Spencer. I just love the color and style. They kinda look like ballet shoes. Everything else is so pretty too!...Christine

  31. Those shoes are precious, Spencer, but not as precious as you are! And you are, you know...


    Sheila :-)
