Yippeee - Another PINK SATURDAY!

It feels so good to be a part of another PINK SATURDAY!
This adorable gift "box" I found last summer at a yard sale for ONLY .25 !!!
Believe me, I've had to "fight" Kerri for it - if it goes missing from my craft area I KNOW I'll find it on her dresser!!!
Sory, I took a rather lousey photo of this sweet little bracelet - tiny pink rhinestones are in the middle of each one of the gold "flowers" along with the pink beads and deep rose tone beads. This bracelet was originally Morgan's - she's 18 - last year she passed it down to Kerri who is 7. (I had given it to Morgan when she was 12.)

OK - I saw this in the newspaper, an ad for this super cute figurine, and just couldn't pass up sharing it with everyone!!


Wanted to "show-off" the family-project Kerri's teacher send home for us to do. He was just an enlarged coloring book figure that we had to decorate to hang on the wall at school. Kerri an I had fun creating him. KERRI sewed the mouth onto the muslin I gave her and glued on the eyes and colored in the cheeks. She also colored in the pants, tied the string around his neck, set the orange "button" brads, colored the shoes, tied them, added the patch to his knee with the safety pin and added the pumpkins herself. I took care of forming the fabric to his hat as well as the plaid fabric for the shirt and stuffing the straw. This is a nice keepsake that Kerri and I did together and we have another one at school now - a Indian Girl which is up for Thanksgiving!


Its beginning to feel a lot like Christmas...we made SUGAR COOKIES from scratch!They were so yummy!!




Sorry, didn't get the pics AFTER he was decorated - but he sure did taste GOOD!!




An I've been a busy elf, sorting, wrapping Christmas gifts!!


Hope everyone has a great weekend and enjoys their PINK SATURDAY!!!

Hey, girl!! Your pink posts are awesome! Especially love the croc box! What a find. The scarecrow is so adorable. Can't wait to see the Indian girl. You had better show her!! Hee! Love your bows on your gifts. I've wrapped some, too, but I don't put bows on until the last minute. I'm bad about that! Happy Pink Saturday!

Happy Pink Saturday! Your daughter's scarecrow turned out so cute, I bet she was really proud of it, and I can just smell the gingerbread. I bet your whole house smelled so good. That really gets you in the holiday mood! What a great pink find -for only 25 cents! What a steal! ~ Robyn
