Being thankful and PINK saturday

good morning to all. hope this finds you well. two weeks ago my family was hit with a horrible event. the death of my daughter's dearest friend. chris' sudden passing is pulling at my heart. when the death of a young person seems to not make sense in "our world" one can only turn it over to the lord and keep stong in faith. i would like to thank all of you for your concerns and prayers. they mean so much. we write & share so much on our blogs, as if we are all living on the same block. it amazes me how souls connect via the internet. i am thankful for that.

i haven't really prepared much in the way of pink. two snow days caused me to create other projects. i'll share a few pictures from my files, just random PINKS me thinks.
i'm not sure what i will be doing with this bed jacket. i'm thinking altering it with alot of fluff, like over the top romantic girl-ee and leaving it on the mannequin.
a few altered ink pens i made for the shop. very easy to make. a pack of ink pens, ribbons and silk flowers. attach the flower to the top of the pen with floral tape. starting at the bottom (the ink part) wrap the pen, at the top part cut the ribbon and glue the end in place. tie all the fluffy ribbon, lace etc. around the part where the pen & flower join. add any extra embellishments. they make nice shower favors, don't you think?
altering odd cast off pieces seems to be something i really love. this metal heart dish had no chance staying silver and plain. first thing i did was paint it a muted pink then decoupaged the vintage image,  added some glitter and a bag-o-buttons, flowers and that 10 karat diamond. (hehee)  jenn at whine n roses has lots of PINK to share. she's very creative and a mother of four (how does she find the time for creating?) please stop by her blog and say hi and of course beverly at how sweet the sound.

Hello, Marie,
I am so sorry to hear of the death of your daughter's friend. It is hard to lose anyone but someone so young seems even harder. I love the bedjacket on the mannequin, and I also love your heart-shaped pan and how you have embellished it! Happy Pink Saturday to you and thank you for stopping by Bunny Cottage. Vicki

Just stopping by to thank you for visiting me on PS and sharing your story. I am so sorry to hear that your mom passed away so young and that you were so young. I never dreamed that a simple story about a daughter's love would cause such an outpouring of emotion from so many. thanks for being part of a special day for me.

G'day Marie ~ Only God knows why our young ones leave us too early ... but we have to comfort ourselves that they are sitting with Jesus.
More enws ~

This is Marydon ~

G'day, Ladies ...
Sherry will arrive on April 16th so we are planning a luncheon on April 17th in Mt. Airy, MD. After the luncheon (I personally am paying for everyone's lunch) we will come back to my house for a gathering of good times, great chatter & enjoyment. I'd like the gathering of we ladies to be around 12:30PM if it will work for you all. Final details will follow.

I have 2 extra beds & a couch for anyone who needs a stay over ... first come first serve.

We (Mt. Airy) are located just off Rt. 70 half way between Frederick & Baltimore.

I will need to know 2 weeks in advance of your coming for the restaurant reservations I've made. Please let me know ... we are so looking forward to meeting you all.

TTFN ~ Hugs, Marydon
