Just Because... ...Pink Saturday

It's time again..for all our Pretty Pinks. To see all the lovely things.. just click on our lovely hostess Beverly at HowSweetTheSound. You'll find all the pinky participants here...
just follow the Pretty Pink Road...See ya'll there..
I realize this being Pink Saturday..there should be some bit of pink..perhaps just a touch. However, in the first picture..there is no pink,no shade..no way,no how..no pink. But if you look close,it's filled with pink..cause that's gotta be the color of happiness. Happy dance happiness. Package's from friends in the mail happiness.. New friends happiness.. A hug from blogging friends happiness...
Can't you see the glow of pink begin..I can..and it's filled the screen with sparkly,pretty,pink hugs and love....
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
The first package in the mail was from Charlotte @ Yard Sales & Crochet Oh My!
She wrote to say she wanted to send me a pretty crochet piece her mother had made. I thought it so sweet that she wanted to share something so special with me and as you can see, her mother crochet's beautifully. There are stitches in this sweet doily that are called picot..and all my life I've loved that stitch and hated to make it..it's not an easy one to make look right...and her mother has managed to make it so pretty. I will treasure this sweet gift forever.. Now,I need to help her mother with some more Sunbonnet Sue applique patterns. I've not been able to print them off for her..my printer is out of ink and I haven't gotten any yet..but I've scanned some in and emailed them so Charlotte can run them off. I can't wait to see what pretty thing she makes.

The next package is from our own sweet LaVoice from Thoughts From MeMe's Corner.She wrote and wanted my address and knowing from her picture,she has that beautiful twinkle in her eye..I just knew she was up to something. And sure enough..she was. As her pretty note said, this was a "Just Because" gift..because that was the best kind...and she's right. When I got the little package, she should have been able to hear me squeal/scream/felt the ground shake from my jumping up and down.. (I'm too old to jump that way anymore :)......look,just look what was in the package...
Sweet Sunbonnet Sue potholders...beautiful vintage,quilted Sue potholders...,not one, but two of the little cuties. Can ya'll tell I'm smiling?? The color of smiles is pink.. I promise you..it is.

My wishes for everyone today are that someone special sends them a "Just Because" gift...There is nothing like them. There has been so many health issues in my family lately..and "Just Because" makes it better. We all need those kinds of hugs..
and I have been so privledged and honored to meet such wonderful blogger friends..
I care about so many of you..and each day,I make new friends.. I am blessed..

  9. Thanks for posting my gift, but my mother did not crochet it. I did! Mother has never been able to master the fine art of crocheting. She loves the Sunbonnet Sue patterns that you sent and can't wait to get started on them. I hope your husband is doing better. Please don't feel obligated to send me more patterns but if you do,Mother and I sure do appreciate them. Happy Pink Saturday! P.S. "LV" is a sweet lady, isn't she?

  22. My friend thank you for your kind words. I love doing small things when I can for others. In fact, I may have to give up blogging. When I am out and about, I see things that blog friend or that one would like. Now that is getting pretty bad. However, it will take more than me being crazy to give up my blogging friends. Trust things will improve for you and family. I liked your crochet too. She does a great job and I love her work.
