of pink things and saturdays

happy 1st birthday to pink saturday!
To think that one year ago, Beverly had this inspired idea to celebrate all things pink and just last week had 150 participants! Way to go, Beverly and thank you for putting all of this together each week.

my winks of pinks

This pink patchwork bag was too cute (and too cheap at $7.99) to pass up!

This little pink bucket didn't sell on my Etsy site so I gave it a little makeover.

my wedding day
Fourteen years ago, I celebrated a special Saturday: my wedding. The beautiful day had many touches of pink from my junior bridesmaid's pink dress to tablecloths, votives and flowers.

This is a photo of a photo so please excuse the quality.

Happy Pink Saturday to all!

Be sure to stop by Cynthia's blog. She is having an awesome giveaway!

I loved the clips and the special thank you! I love anything with the letter E!

Happy Anniversary and Pink Saturday all rolled into one. I decided to wait until Little League season was over to participate in Pink Saturday again since I can't find the time to do much visiting.

Hi Elyse!! What a pretty post! I love that tote bag! It is so pretty :) I can see it full of cottage magazines or flowers or even a loaf of crusty french bread! Love the bucket too :) I did something similar with little watering cans. I love to decoupage!

I think we all had pink weddings didn't we? (O: I can't believe the pail didn't sell. It's adorable!

Hi Elyse!

What a nice May you have had. I really like your room make-overs. I think gathering ideas is the most fun...after you decide for sure what you want, it would be nice to wave a magic wand and "presto" the work would be done!

Have a good week!

Claudia said...

There's just something about Pink Saturday that brings our the sweetness in people. Beverly sure knew what she was doing when she brought her concept to the world of blog.

Your offering for this FIRST PINK SATURDAY ANNIVERSARY is wonderful! This is the one day of the week where I can totally indulge my passion without spending a dime!

Wishing your and those you love a special weekend filled with sunshine and family fun!
