Pink Saturday and Merry Christmas

Hello everyone, and welcome to a special Pink Saturday! Our hostess is Beverly, from http://howsweetthesound.typepad.com/ This is a vintage card, and I just love the image.



Is this a beautiful tree or what? Sometimes, I do my tree Victorian like this.




I love how these vintage ornaments are displayed on these candlesticks. I copied this idea, on my coffee table.



Isn't this the sweetest Christmas shadow box? I found this over at Jills from http://buckscountyfolkart.blogspot.com/ I want to make one of these after the holidays. She also made one for Halloween. I think they are just awesome.


I found this on Pinterest, and forgot what it is called, but it looks yummy!!!





A shabby pink gingerbread house! Love it!! This darling little house belongs to Veronica over at http://with-love-and-confection.blogspot.com/2011/01/valetine-gingerbread-house-by-with-love.html


I also found these on Pinterest. They are called White-Chocolate-Cherry-Shortbread. You use marishino cherries to give them their pretty pink color.


Love these too. Simple, simple and so pretty!



These are some ornaments I made from plastic cups. They are easy, and you can put so many things inside them. If anyone wants to know how, let me know, and after Christmas I will do a tutorial.






These are ornaments I made from brown paper bags. Yes, brown bags. These are pretty easy too. I think the hardest part was cutting them out with the zigzag scissors. They are painted with acrylic paints, and then decorated. If anyone wants directions I will post them.





One of my favorite postcard images. I love the whimsical, and Victorian. I love both syles, so sometimes I decorate with Victorian decorations, and sometimes the cutsie ones, like the ornaments above.




This year is a hard one for us. My dear mother-in-law who is 91, just entered Hospice this past week. She was diagnosed with bone cancer a few weeks ago. The doctor is only giving her about 2 weeks left, before she makes her journey "home". Thank you for coming by for a visit. I want to wish you all a wonderful holiday, and a New Year filled with happiness, good health, and prosperity.

I would SOOOOOOOOOOOOO have your tree in my home! Absolutely fabulous my friend!

I hope your Christmas was beautiful my friend. I'm sorry about your MIL. Hospice has been called in for my FIL as well. It is difficult for my hubby as we live 9 hours away from his hometown.

Prayers going up for all of you.

Love, Rebecca
