Happy Pink Saturday

Hello bloggerettes, and welcome to another Pink Saturday, hosted by Beverly of http://howsweetthesound.typepad.com/my_weblog/2012/01/pink-saturday-january-21-2012.html. Today, I am sharing some random pinks, of lovely things that my dear mother-in-love made. She passed away sadly on December 27, 2011.

This is a gorgeous angel that she crocheted a few years ago. She has a beautiful porcelain head, and is just exquisite in every detail.





A tiny crocheted baby carriage, filled with potpurri, and another little angel. She made many of these little angels, in different colors, and some are made of needlepoint.





Here is a gorgeous Valentine she made for me, done in needlepoint. The card opens like a three fold. Just beautiful!







Here are some tiny little pillows that she made to go with some beds that she had in a dollhouse. The dollhouse was 3' x 5'. When she moved from her home after my father -in -love passed away, she had to sell it. :( My father-in-love also made many pieces of handmade furniture. I will share them another time.





These are more angels that she made. The tiny ones are needlepoint, and the larger white one is made of parchment paper. She was a craft-o-holic , and just loved to make things for herself and others.







She also made this beautiful quilt, here on the back of my chair. Love the pattern and the soft colors of cream, pink, and mauve. The little pillow was bought at a craft show a few years ago, and the bear made from a vintage bedspread was also bought from a craft fair. I just thought she was so cottagey sweet!! Thanks for coming by, and be sure to visit Beverly for more pretty pinks! I am running a little late today, but just wanted to share some pretties with you.

Hi Debbie

I know how muc your Mother in Love meant to you and it's wonderful that you have so many of her things to treasure.

Just used the Zote soap that you sent me last fall. The first batch of laundry soap made with the other soap lasted awhile. The smell from the Zote adds soo much more. Thanks again!

Enjoy your weekend!

Thinking of you. We have much in common with the recent passing of our MIL's. It's been so hard. Tears were flowing this afternoon by my 13 year old wishing her Nana could see her helping her little sister get ready for a special dance. Your MIL was a talented lady. Such beautiful items.

Hello Debbie,
Every once in a while I come to a blog post that touches your heart. Yours, today, did just that!
You wrote a touching and beautiful tribute to your mother-in-love and her talents, which were many.

Her angels are beautiful, but that darling little baby carriage and those tiny doll house pillows ... well they are exquisite!
Thank you so much for sharing your treasures!
♥ Jil
