Jan 15, 2010


It is Pink Saturday tomorrow and it is suppose to rain all day. It never rains in Southern California! We do need it, we are on water rations so we need all the help we can get. I have Noah tomorrow morning and planning to spend the rest of the day with my favorite sister in law, Maureen.

Today, I pruned my plum tree. It was hard, but I need to do it and feel very good about it. I also pruned 6 more roses. I am almost done with the front yard roses, yeah! I have my middle yard and back yard to go. I worked on my craft room and hung up the curtains that I made for the guess room and moved a desk. It was a good day. I am going to spend some time on my Ebay later. I do not do very much Etsy, I just can't get the hang of if. The different categories confuse me. So, I am sticking to Ebay this year.

I have a few pinks for our special day. I also have a picture of this funky lamp that I have put up on Ebay. I just want to know what you think?

Did you notice my new look? Debbie did it for me. I just love it. She is so good and sweet as pie. Please don't forget my give away.

I am having a give away for my one year anniversary. To celebrate, I have planned this give away, that will end January 31, 2010. Since I am a book-a-holic, what would be better than another book? Rachel Ashwell is my favorite designer. This book, The Gift of Giving, I believe is her best! All you have to do is leave a comment, the more you leave the more chances you get. (I love getting to know you.) If you choose to follow, I will give you two extra points and last but not least, if you add my button to your blog, you get three chances. It is just that easy. Just let me know what you have done and Noah and I will do the rest!

Thank you ladies for all your kind words. Have a great Pink Saturday! Remember you are special! Blessings, Martha

Happy Pink Saturday Martha. Lovely new blog home. I love it. It suits you to a "T". The template is so soft and pink and pretty. Love it.

I love the lady lamp at the first of your post. She is exquisite. Looks like she is waiting for just the right one to come along and ask her to trip the "light" fantastic.

Thanks for sharing sweetie. Country hugs, Sherry

Lovely pinks you've shared as always. No rain yet here at the beach in Southern Californi but the skies look threatening and it SMELLS like it could rain any time. I'm looking forward to the 'wet stuph' but have decided to put off planting my flat of pansies until the storms pass ... just because.
Hugs and blessings,

Hi sweet Martha, I love your new look, good job. The lamp is pretty and would love to see what you do with it. I sell both on etsy and ebay. Etsy takes some getting used to, but doesn't have the high fees that ebay has, good luck no matter where you are, you have some very lovely items, Happy Pink Saturday, Char

Betty said...

I love the hand and the lamp too. Happy Pink Saturday.

I absolutely love your new look. Debbie also did my blog for me and she is such a dear to work with. I think the new look suits you so well.
I adore the photos of today's post. All of your lovely items are so soft and feminine.
Thank you for your kind words on my last post. It means so much to me to know that my writing is a blessing to others.
May His blessings come to you and yours today.

In Grace,

I do love your new look Martha. And that lamp is way cool funky! Someone will have fun with that.
I hope you are feeling better. Did the Epsom salt bath help? I hope so.
Have a good night.

Martha said...

Nice girly pinks! What a great lamp! This is my first visit but i'll be back!

Tammy@T's Daily Treasures said...

Pretty pinks Martha! Glad to hear you got the curtains done and hope that your knees are feeling better. Did ya'll get rain? A friend in San Antonio had to go to court because they got a ticket for watering their yard on a day when it wasn't allowed. She spent more time getting there and waiting to be seen by the judge, only to get a fine and it all be over with in minutes. Love the blog makeover. Wishing you a week of blessings, Tammy

GwendolynKay said...

I love your pinks today, especially that lovely lady lamp.
Blessings always!

Rebecca said...

Martha, What a pleasant surprise to trip over your blog today! I can't even remember the "chain" that led me here, I'm sorry to say.

I love it that you record some of Noah's statements! "I know everything, Gamma" is a classic! (I have a few Noah-types in my menagerie of grandchildren myself and delight in their sayings.)

Your collections are beautiful; I'd be thrilled to win a Rachel Ashwell book! I've followed her "evolution" with interest over the years! Thanks for offering it.
