Pink Saturday Eve Eve!

I haven't been online much (again) this week. My youngest has had a terrible cold (boo!) and was home sick from school for most of the week; meanwhile one of my two sisters is visiting from New Jersey (yay)!

In between a doctor's appointment, an airport pick-up, picking up piles of tissues and more, I managed to make this "Cottage Sweet Cottage" frame in teenie-tiny increments and posted it at my Etsy shop. I was THRILLED when it sold within HOURS. I plan to make more (even one for myself). [Note: Just added 2 more to my shop]

Because I have still have a busy weekend ahead, I am putting together my Pink Saturday post tonight–Pink Saturday Eve Eve! If you are curious about Pink Saturday, please click here and Beverly will tell you all about her inspired idea!

I love gerbera daisies!!! More pink "signs" of spring ...

Both signs (top: in my kitchen; bottom: The Painted Cottage Studio) painted by the amazing and multi-talented Valerie Boothroyd.

Happy Spring! Happy Passover! Happy Pink Saturday! Happy Easter!

Betty Jo said...

I have to know; the pegs under the Flower Shop sign, are those individual peg shelves, or do they come in strips that way or something? What am I actually seeing there? That's beautiful. Your frame is gorgeous and no surprise it sold right away. So sorry your little one has been ill, but so glad your sister gets to visit. Have a wonderful Easter!! ♥

I just found your blog today and I love reading through. I will be adding you to my favorites. I have missed all your beautiful Pink Saturday posts. The list of participants is growing bigger and bigger, its becoming impossible to visit them all especially in one day.
