I love my new little pink Fisker scissors not to mention all the pretty scrapbooking paper I've been cutting up with them. I found a bunch of the paper on sale at both Michael's and Hobby Lobby over the past week. I have been wondering about glitter lately-what is german glass glitter? I've seen mention of it but I don't know what it is or where to find it. I would love it if someone could tell me.
I also wanted to share with you a cute little bird that my sister made me for christmas last year. I love the little pink wings and pretty pink button eyes it has(and I love the green pink combo of colors-my favorite combo!)
Just recently I visited Lecompton Kansas Hisorical Museum- a very fun and worth your time trip. They had amazing stuff and a very nice and helpful tour guide. Below is some beautiful pink depression glass-sorry the pic didn't come out a little better. Lecompton Kansas was the Territoral Capital before Kansas became a state.
This was also at the Museum- A beautiful old spinning wheel.
Since Maddy Joy, my editor-in- chief, got her picture posted last Saturday the rest of my blogging Staff has been insisting they have their pics posted too. Below is my friend Jane's little papillion Napoleon who I am fostering right now for her. His title is official lap warmer when I'm on the computer. He likes to curl up on an afaghan I crocheted a while back when he isn't on my lap. Next week I will share another member of my staff.
And for some strange reason I feel compelled(almost like I'm under a spell or something) to share one more pic-even though the only pink in it is this kind lady's cheeks.
She is one of the Halloween tags I've been working on. Well Happiest of Pink Saturdays to you all! Thanks for stopping by to make mine a better one! Don't forget to check out all the other nice ladies listed on Beverly's blog- http://howsweetthesound.typepad.com/

The second is one of the crosses I have hanging in my dining room. I have a cross collection but this is the only one that is pink. :(
The next pink is some kind of flower that I found at a local park-I am thinking celosia but I'm not sure. My two neices and I went out shooting pics one Saturday and this is one of them. I tried to upload another flower but I lost it somewhere.
And last but not least is the rug in my living room with my editor in chief and her ever present opinion about mommy's latest hobby. She is such a great big help!
Did I mention tha is a library book that she chewed up!
Happy pink Saturday!

Isn't it lovely! Someday I would love to aquire the pieces I'm missing but it's only a someday wish, not a need. Below is a closup of the floral motif.
I've added some pictures below that hang in my tiny dining area that used to hang in my mother's bedroom. I believe she found these at a garage sale and fell in love with them. Now they just remind me of her everytime I see them. My mother died in 1995 at the very young age of 58. I miss her every day but I look forward to seeing her again.
I've been playing with paper and images all week and having boatloads of fun. Below is an image on my inspiriation board that hangs over my computer area.
Well I just want to say Thank You for stopping by for a visit. I always love reading your comments. It is so fun to get to meet new people. Don't forget to stop and visit with the other lovely ladies all listed on Beverly's blog-http://howsweetthesound.typepad.com/.

Today is Pink Saturday! Time to play! In the spirit of play I am going to share with you all some fun paper dolls I picked up recently at My Father's Daughter. It brought back wonderful memories of playing with paperdolls with my two older sisters. What fun it was to pick them out, cut out their clothes, make up story lines and interact with the other dolls we already had. Does anybody remember the Green Acres paper dolls? My sister had those. Za Za had such fabulous outfits! Well these paper dolls are a little older than any ones I played with but they are in fabulous shape. Here they are:
This is the front cover of the storybook. Love her pink coat!
This is the title page-Ibelieve it says 1947,1948, Simon and Shuster.
This is the back of the book where the little paper dolls are tucked into their beds for sleep time.
Above is the middle of the story where Jim and Judy play with 1000s of butterflies and flowers. Then they go and pick apples out of a Farmer's orchard. Apparently he doesn't mind them stealing from him. Below is their clothes closet which contains most of their original clothes.
Thanks for stopping by my place so I could share in your Pink Saturday. Don't forget to check out everyone else listed at Beverly's http://howsweetthesound.typepad.com/ See you soon!

Next is one from Locust Street Marketplace-
After that we found this adorable yo-yo quilt at My Father's Daughter. It makes me want to try making one. It looks pretty time-consuming though. Mabey someday soon. I think for now I will have to content myself with crafts that take a little less time upfront.
After photo shopping we went to our next fun summertime place- Bismark Gardens where we by sweetcorn by the dozen. We love to support local businesses whenever possible and what fun to go out to where it is grown. It is just a few minutes out of town so we get our little country drive in without a lot of gas. My oldest neice had recently gone to Japan to our sister city on an exchange program and when she came back she hosted two Japanese girls here. My sister took them out to Bismark Gardens which they really loved since they have nothing like it in Japan. I can't think of anything more "Kansas" like than a trip to Bismark Gardens.
