Happy Pink Saturday

 Happy May to all you wonderful Bloggers out there, I hope your enjoying your Saturday outside in the sunshine, Thats why Im doing my post a little early. I want to be outside, with hope it will be a little bit warmer and dryer than it has been the rest of the week. I have so much painting to do, and since I have to do all my painting outside, I have to hope for nice weather with minimal wind..MINIMAL WIND in Palmdale is rare, except in the morning, so Im all prepared to get up early and get some of my painting projects started , at least with the priming. And of course I need to get some of my Saturday Morning Junking done. I LOVE saturday morning junking. Some are good, some aren't for treasures, but its always FUN. My sister and I so much fun, we always have a little contest between each other, this week I get to pick, so in light of that, I want to introduce you to a blogger I just found, Here name is Suzie, her blog is so cute, I learn something new from every blog I visit, and this one is probably used by many, but since Im not a hardcore scrapbooker I really never thought to do this, but she uses the cutest vintage childrens books to embellish her scrapbook pages, ADORABLE, These are books I remember from Elementary School , So one of my challenges with my sister is to find a childhood book, I normally pass books up, but not anymore. I hope you take a moment and go check out Suzie Blog
This motivated me even more to get my graduating sons scrapbook caught up, Today I was working on a DVD of photos of him growing up, for his graduation, I am so embarrassed to say that I have not added to it since 2000, that is 10 years..What have I been doing? I know what it is, thats about the time everything became digital, all my pictures are on my computer, and disks.  I use to be so good about my kids scrap books, my youngest has a box of disks, and a practically empty scrapbook. That is just awful.  So thank you Suzie for giving me some motivation to get them caught up, I am going to hunt for those cutie old books too.

This week I didnt get much done to show you that would represent Pink, Alot of projects almost done, cant wait to share them, something different, but until then,Im going to keep it to myself.  But I did find these pretty glasses that I have available today on my Ebay. They are Franciscan Desert Rose, Ive never seen these glasses that match the very popular Franciscan Dishes. Also one of my sweet pink lampshades is available , I hope you come visit. I also have an image to share with all of you, since I dont have much pink to share, I always have plenty of Pretty Pink Images. I hope you find something pretty to make with it.

And most of all , I want to thank Beverly for Hosting this fun weekly Post
I hope you go visit her too.
I hope everyone has a Blessed Pink Saturday.

Happy pink Saturday Sweetie...
What a wonderful post you have shared today. I had never thought of children's books to use for my scrapbooking either, but I will start remembering to look the books over in a new way for sure. Thanks for sharing one of your new friend's tips. I love it when we share with each of the other bloggers. So much fun.

Your glasses are so pretty and the lampshade is delightful. I love the little white knobby base. So pretty.

Have a beautiful Pink Saturday filled with happiness and sunshine sweetie.

Country hugs...Sherry
