Good evening;  Wow it was a very long and very hot day today for our garage sale, but we did pretty good, so that was a plus. Last day is tomorrow, I can't wait I love to go to them but really really don't like to have them........ lol   Tomorrow it is going to be 94  so I hope it does not keep them from surfing for some sales...  I think that maybe next weekend I will do it one more time than all goes to the Good Will. It is the  4th of July so I hope we have more traffic... if not  well it was not meant to be....  My dear sweet MIL  came up to give me a helping hand, she was up way before me, bless her loving heart, and had so much set up. I told her she should have woke me up, and she said she wanted to let me sleep a little more,,, now how lucky am I to have her in my life.......

Ok enough of my garage sale an on to  our very Fun and exciting Pink Saturday,  which is hosted by our  own Sweet Beverly of 

How Sweet The Sound  So when you are done with my post, which I sure hope some of you do stop by,,, hehe  pop on over to her site and she will have a  very long list of other Lovely Ladies who will be showing their Pink Pretties.

So for my Pinkness, I am showing my Pink Hydrangea, I was so excited to see them blooming, this is the first year I have planted two of them, and they are growing and blooming....  So I grabbed my camera and took some photos. To share with you all for this wonderful day....

Now I know that they are not grown up yet they are still babies, but they did bloom, and I have more today going to give birth,,, yippy!!!!   I love the  beautiful Pink,  don't you think so?????

This is on the other Plant, can you see the other blooms just waiting to pop out and show off all the Pink goodness......  I can't wait till they grow up and then I can pick them for the house and dry some....  ooooo ahhhhhh   

Ok this next photo is sort of a tease , I am working on a mosaic for my daughter and just had to show you a bit of what it will look like.  When I get more done I will be showing off more, so I hope all of your pro's in the Mosaic world  give me some advise on how I am doing.....

I just love doing Mosaic's I have so many broken China pieces that I can play with.... lol    I buy them a garage sales and the thrift stores, for really great buys ....  I went last weekend to buy me a new pair of nippers, the ones with the wheels, they work so much better, I really love them. I can get to a spot that I want with out breaking the whole plate... is that not cool or what.... I found too that I can do just the center of the plate that has a pretty pattern. so needless to say I am having a blast with them...  woohooo.  I hope you enjoyed my few Pretty Pink beauties for you . And don't forget to stop by Beverly's for more Pink goodness.......

I thank each and ever one of you for all you wonderful comment which I so love to read, you are the best  friends any one could ask for......  Oh and I have some news on Honey Bunny's job search, which you will have to wait on for my next post..... he he it is a great one too I might add....  So until next time. God Bless;

Happy Pinks! I posted a small table top that I just mosaic'ed (not grouted yet). Bravo on getting the wheel nippers! I have two pair now.

Your mosaic looks really so (from what little you teased us with!) BTW I do have helpful hints and tricks for mosaics on my blog...check the top left corner margin for a list of how to's. They might be helpful for you.

Can't wait to see the finished mosaic!

Your MIL sounds so wonderful! Hope you get loads of sales today!

Hi Alaura! Thanks for stopping by Country Wings in Phoenix. I always love to hear what people have to say about my BLOG. I love your hydrangeas. They are going to be beautiful. I have had no success with those out here. I have really tried. It is hot here today too. To hot for a garage sale. I don't know how you did it. Hopefully it was worth it, and you had a great sale. Loved your mosiac. I would like to try my hands at it one of these days. I work 45 hours a week, so I do good to find the time for my BLOG, but I find it is such great theraphy, and it is very hard to find people that like "crafting and country" here in Phoenix. I guess I am just an old soul in a younger persons body. I have met a couple of ladies here on my BLOG and am thrilled. Have a wonderful rest of the weekend. Good luck tomorrow on your sale. Please stop by again soon. "Country Hugs", Sherry
