Pink Skies and Pink Shabby

Glad you could stop by today-I hope you enjoy all the pink. Don't forget to stop by http://howsweetthesound.typepad.com/ to visit all the other ladies who are joining in the pink fun!

Below is a picture I took last Saturday( i think) evening when I looked outside and saw that the light seemed to be pink. I grabbed my camera and went out the door to see the sunset and this is what I saw-A beautiful pink sky with a rainbow.
On Thursday morning I got up early and took my camera with me to see what I could find. I meandered over to the Kansas River which is very close to where I live. The sun was just coming up and the fog was beginning to burn off. I think you can see how much I love the sky. When I was younger I lived in D.C. for two summers and that is what I missed the most besides family. I just couldn't see the sky there. I need it like I need air and water. Kansas has plenty of sky to see and I am grateful.
Below is a picture of , what else, my favorite store in town, Antiques Plus. It has a wonderful shabby chic corner and I just had to share it with all you Pink Ladies.

Last of all but not least of all(and I know, I know it isn't pink either) is part of my Halloween giveaway. My sister is contributing a sweet little bird in a black feather lined nest to the lucky winner. This little bird has fabulous taste as it has chosen to reside in a silver goblet. Smart bird!



If you want to know more about the giveaway-see my post from Blue Monday this week-there will be more items in the giveaway as well-You will see the rest of them by Monday next week. I will draw the winner on Tuesday and announce the name next Wednesday. Good Luck and have a blessed and Pink week!

Hi Susan,

Thank you for your comment. The roses are only due to God showing us how to grow them! Each season is a new adventure. I also have a lavender patch. It grows well here in PA, since it's a similar climate to Provence in France (believe it or not). God has blessed this area - just about everything grows here.

Take care,
Susan
PS - I noticed that you love Celtic music - me too!

Susan, your sky with the rainbow is awesome. I think your other sky shot is great too. I have family in Kansas City, Missouri side. We visit Kansas often and it is a beautiful place to live. Nice pink post.

To answer your question, you can get the yoyo kit in Joann's Fabric store. It is beyond easy and they come in different sizes.

Hugs...Jeanne
