Pink Saturday/Giveaway Winner!!

To celebrate Pink Saturday, today I'm showing you this sweet little pink vase that was my Mother's. I don't think I ever knew where it came from; maybe if my brother reads this part of the post he'll have some idea and will let me know. I like knowing where things have been and how they get from place to of my quirks. The vase must as old as I am. The beautiful lady with the pink rosy cheeks is my Mom; it's my understanding that this picture was taken before she ever met my Dad.
Here's a close-up of the mirrored tray. Actually, everything on it was my Mom's. By the time I came along the lipstick was old but she kept it as a memento of something (I think) in her jewelry box. I remember on Halloween she'd use it to brighten up my cheeks.
And here's a tray of baubles that appeal to me. They're all second-hand. I especially like the man in the frame--that's Dr. Love.
After this week, I'm planning to take a short break from posting for Pink Saturday. But I'm sure that I'll still visit all you Pinkies and I'll post again in time. We all owe a great deal to Beverly at How Sweet The Sound who takes time each week to email all 150+ of us and then puts together and posts the list of participants. THANK YOU Beverly!

Regarding my giveaway, I appreciate every one of you who took the time to visit my Etsy shop and offer encouragement and suggestions. Because of your input, I'm working on my policies, having a banner done and adding better pictures of the nursing aprons. I've also added a few new things and later this week I'll have a table runner similar to my giveaway and some pot holders from the same fabric.

Because so very many of you commented, I am giving away both the apron and the runner!!
So without further ado, let's join Dr. Love as he pulls the winner's names:
The winner of the pink nursing apron is:
Sandi @ My Yellow Door! Sandi's blog is Rose Chintz Cottage & Inspirations. Congratulations Sandi! Please drop me an email with your address information so that I can get your nursing apron mailed out to you this week.

And, the winner of the table runner is:
Candy! Her blog is Rock Candy. Congratulations Candy! Please drop me an email with your address information so that I can send your table runner to you.

That's it for this week. Wishing you all a Happy Pink Saturday!
Hugs, Leslie

Oh, those are two great winners! I'm so happy for them, and I want to wish you a Happy Pink Saturday. My posting has been a bit sporadic because I was out of a computer and away for part of the summer, but I love this meme, too. Speaking of which...

Happy PS to you!

Oh Leslie, oh vase is just adorable! The picture of your mom is gorgeous and I adore the tray with her "pretties" in it. That is a wonderful Idea I am going to do that with my grandmothers picture and things she's given me I think she'll laugh too. Thanks for sharing. I truly enjoyed it!


Thanks for coming by and saying hello on Pink Saturday. I enjoyed poking around your blog.

Have a great week,

Good Morning Leslie!

I don't think I had ever seen that picture of your mom, I don't remember her like that but I should post the picture of my mom. She is so beautiful in her picture and it always amazes me because to me she has always been mom. (Not some cute chick)!

Have a wonderful day and week!

Becky :)
