Pink Saturday and Merry Christmas

Hello everyone, and welcome to a special Pink Saturday! Our hostess is Beverly, from 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 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

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.
