It's that time again..Pink Saturday. I always love this time when everyone shows their pretty pinks.Though I love all soft sweet pastel shades,soft pink is probably my favorite..so let's all go looking at the pretty blogs and the pretties everyone is showing. All you have to do is to visit Beverly and see the list of pinkies.
HowSweetTheSound is where you go...the list is there. Be sure and visit as many participants as possible and leave comments. We all love comments..they just make my day.
And while you're out visiting, go by CandGdesign..and say hi to Dawn. She's is such a sweetie ..
As sweet as spring..nothing can be prettier nor more springlike than pretty pink hyacinth, nor can pink be found anywhere that's more dainty,soft..so sweet and snuggly,as is pink chenille. I love,love pretty pink flowers..and I love,love chenille, most specially pink chenille. I wish I had a sweet throw made with squares of the softest chenille, one of each pink..wouldn't that be gorgeous. I think to myself,haven't you yet learned your lesson with chenille??? And still you want more?????
You see, there is a small story with me and chenille. *deep sighs... It's far enough in the past now,so that I don't sob..well,not so much anymore when I think of it. You see, once upon a time, maybe 3 years ago...I discovered ebay. Not only did I discover ebay,I fell in love with all the wonders just at my fingertips. Oh, what a silly innocent I was back then..* insert a weak smile here..for you see...*sighs again, there came a time when I thought I had a small need for chenille..as I loved the texture,just everything about it..and after all, wasn't I in possession of a really sweet pattern showing me how to make the cutest chenille animals?? You can see, I had to have some. As luck or fate would have it..it was also a long 3 day holiday weekend..when I decided on the day to buy, and since it was a holiday, I assumed that most everyone would be home doing family things..etc. I tell you this because in my warpedness,my thinking made sense to me at the time.
So..I enetered ebay with debit card in hand and some sort of inkling of the cute chenille I wanted..and then I thought..(that's where I screwed up),since it's a holiday..I had better bid on a lot so I will get at least some chenille. And with that,I set about bidding on most all the chenille I found..and I found a lot. *sobs
Yes..you guessed the rest. I bid on everything I saw, nobody else was bidding..at all!!!!!, and I won it all. Over a three day weekend, I watched my bank account go lower and lower, I won bid after bid after bid. I was shocked, then stunned, then horrified..then giggly, then a squalling mess.It was a horrible 3 days,as I won bid after bid after bid and I prayed for someone to come along and bid higher than me. *sighs... It didn't happen folks..Just me winning,winning,winning. All different colors of chenille.
I've told you'all this for one reason only..you see,I have a need for pink chenille..but I will try to find pieces at JoAnn's or HobbyLobby..no more auctions for me., but aren't these pinks pretty??? I wish they were mine..
Nope CC, no more auctions for you and chenille.
