Pink Saturday

Hi everyone! Today is Pink Saturday at Beverly's blog, "How Sweet the Sound"

The pinks I am showing today is a lovely gift I received as the winner of Llyn's giveaway!

Here are all pretty "pinks" I won!

I also got a pink pencil, but that is already in my purse! LOL These pretty pink crystal earrings are just lovely! And I love the vintage hankie!
I received 2 of these pot holders. Aren't they amazing! I can't wait until I show you the rose teapot and teacups next week and you will see these pretties in the picture I'm sure. they will match beautifully!
Such a pretty petite cup and saucer!

Llyn also included a rose candle, rose soap and a pretty pink notecard!

Thank you so much Llyn! Everything is just so pretty!!

Today Beverly has asked us to share one of our favorite childhood memories of a special holiday.

One of my favorite memories of childhood Christmas' is regarding my brother Mike. When we were kids, his bedroom was upstairs and my other brother and I would camp out upstairs on Christmas Eve. We slept very little. We were just too excited about Santa coming. Around 4:00 in the morning we would talk Mike into creeping downstairs and see what Santa left us. So, he would and then he would come back up the stairs with big handfuls of M&M's that Santa had left. Mike will creep downstairs several more times before we got up for the morning.

By the time we got to go downstairs "officially" the big glass candy dish that held M&M's was empty and you could see a trail of M&M's up the stairs.

I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!

To this day, Mike, 45 years old, still can not resist M&M's!

  12. Diann, I bet those little round candies call to your brother when ever they are in the house....Mike....come eat's so hard to have them around, they call to me as well. I wonder, does Mike eat one color at a time like I do, or does he eat them at random....I love your story, all the excitement of the holiday, Happy Pink Saturday, Char
