MERRY PINK SATURDAY TO ALL

Well here it is Pink Saturday, I am happy to be back participating in all the pretty Pinkness.  I love it  when Saturday rolls around, I get my coffee and laptop sit on my comfy sofa and just look at all the pretty Pinkness out there in blog land. I have seen so my beautiful treasures that my blog friends are sharing.

Well what I am posting on is my two Pillow Shams, I finally finished them,,, yeaaaaaaaaa!!!!!  they turned out pretty well if I do say so myself. lol.

Now normally you are to use a red for this some of you might  know it as Red Work, well I love Red Work but I decided to use a pink and brown. I think the colors are very nice together. On one sham is a Rose pattern, and the other is Daisy pattern. I wanted them to have a subtle difference but share the same color and theme such as flowers, does that make sense.....

And a close up of the daisy's. Daisy's are my very very favorite flower. I have lots of other flowers that I like, but these I really really love....  To quote Sheila;  can you love a daisy.........  why yes you can.....   lol;

And for my last Pretty Pink  I have this very pretty Pink tea cup and saucer. The flowers sort of look like Poinsettia flower. So it is so perfect for Christmas I had some tea in it on Christmas Eve, it was so nice, hubby made a fire and all was cozy. ahhhhhhhh.  oh sorry I sort of went off the track here,,,,, lol I am back now.  Oh yes and the tea cup an saucer photo..... hang on. Parrish Christmas  2008 111  I love this little sweet pink tea cup.

The saucer is just a pretty as the cup don't you think this is a very sweet tea cup.....  I do..............   can you love a tea cup???????  hmmmm  lets ask Sheila,  so what do you think,,,,,  can you???

Why of course you can... lol   well I hope you all enjoyed my Pretty Pinkness.  I have lots of great Christmas photos to share with all of my dear friends, but I will post them like a to be continued. So please keep stopping in so you can take a peek at my lovely and silly family. 

I want to thank you all for stopping by to read  about my life and family from day to day, the projects I am working on and things like that. It truly means the world to me, and when you leave a sweet comment that is the Cherry on top....  So thank you all and I hope each and every one of my Dear Friends a  Blessed New Year.

You did a great job on the pillowcases. I have never really done this kind of stitching. I would love to. I should find a pattern of something I like and go for it. Right? Also love the teacup and saucer too.

Embroidery wsas the first needle craft I remember my mom teaching me how to do. I wasn't very good at it--I could never get my stem stitches to look right (is that what you used for your stitchery?). I so appreciate the great job you did--it's not easy! Glad you enjoyed some Christmas Eve tea in that sweet cup and saucer! Hope you have a wonderful New Year! Dana
