Good morning to all my fellow Pink blogger's .  I hope you all have had a wonderful week.  Before I start, I want to thank you for you kind and caring comments concerning my nephew, he is doing fine now,Praise the Lord.  Now on for Pink Saturday, it seems to be showing up faster and faster. I no sooner post one and then here is another. My my how time flies, when you are not looking.

Rooms that I redid 029 

Now I know that there is not a lot of Pink in this, but I just had to share it with you. This is a dresser scarf  that my sweet Mom make so many years ago, it is very old and not in such perfect shape, but it is beautiful to me.  I used to keep it in a drawer to protect it, but I decided to bring it out now, it is on my dresser that we bought at a local Antique mall,  so now it has a home. And every time I see it I think of my Mom.  I took a photo of how it looks so far on my dresser, I am looking for a dresser set now to complete the look.

Rooms that I redid 030

The long gloves I found at the same Antique mall, I fell in love with them. I really need to get some candles for my holders. They were a gold color and I sprayed painted them and then did and antique look to them with a gold stain. I took some wax and buffed them and they came out great. 

Rooms that I redid 028

Now this sweet wall hanging was made by my two daughters and my oldest granddaughter Caileigh J.  They surprised me with it on Grandparents Day.  It means so much to me, this was made the year after we lost our daughter April Caileigh's  Mommy.  Now I know what you are all probably thinking,  why does it say Mamaw Goddess. well I will tell you all.  I remember the day that April told us she was going to have another baby, we were so excited. I was making a joke saying that  this time can the grand baby call me Goddess instead of  Grandma.  So  April and Chas were teaching Caileigh to say Mamaw Goddess she was two yrs old.  So now she is 9 yrs old now and still calls me that, now my other three grand daughters call me that. It is something so special to me to hear them call me that, because my daughter taught her.

You should see how people look when they hear that out in public. lol I love the look on their faces...  

Well I hope you all enjoyed my Pink Saturday photos, and the sweet stories that go with them.  I hope you all have a very Pink Day, and too see more beautiful Pink pretties stop by our wonderful hostess Beverly of  How Sweet the Sound to see more pretties.   until next time; God Bless;

I love scarves for the table. Your scarf is lovely and the footprints is too cute. When I lived in Hong Kong I used to go to a place called Stanley Market. There, they had vendors selling hundreds of scarves, towels, even bun warmers...all made of the most wonderful linen, lace and embroidered embellishments. Thank you for the reminder of a special time. Happy Pink Saturday.

I love your arrangement on that vintage dresser--your mom's scarf looks perfect there!
Mamaw Goddess is a wonderful title--I think all of grannies should add Goddess to our names!! Great idea!
I hope you have a great PSat! I'm spending mine with my little gr. girl! Boy, will I be tired tonight! Dana

The dresser scarf is lovely. Isn't it wonderful to have things made by the hands of the people we love the most. Thanks so much for sharing!

I did not realize you had lost a daughter previously. That makes your memories even more special and treasured. That gift from the girls is so precious. I love how they call you a Goddess. Happy Pink Saturday!

You should keep the dresser scarf out and use it. It looks great!

Donna said...

What wonderful and cherished treasures your pink posts are! The scarf is just lovely, and reminds me of one that I have on my dresser. It's a bit worn too.
Have a Happy Pink Saturday and a great weekend.

I love your MaMa Goddess story! And that dresser scarf is so special. It deserves to be out in the open. I do the same thing...keep things in drawers to "preserve" them when they should be out in the open and being enjoyed. Thanks for the reminder.

caren said...

What beautiful stories you have to go along with your Pinks today! Thanks for sharing.

I just love dresser scarves and this one is just so special because your mother made it for you! Your dresser is also pretty; is it an antique?

Great Pink Saturday post-they do come around fast! ;-)

The scarf is pretty and special when made by a mom. I wish I knew how to do the paint thing on the candle holders. I have object I could improve if I knew how. Will have to investigate.

Your mom did a beautiful job on the scarf. and having it out and displayed so nicely with your other treasures, looks gorgeous on your dresser.

You are blessed having wonderful grandkids who love you dearly and I'm so sorry to hear about the lost of your precious daughter. The love that is between you and your grandkids will always be a very special strong bond, that they will remember you by in there life time. Thank you for sharing and have a wonderful day!
