HAPPY PINK SATURDAY!









Looking forward to Saturday, I will be watching Noah all day, which is always delightful and of course, it is all about Pink. Hope to get a chance to go to my favorite thrift store. Noah likes to go shopping, so with a little luck, that will also be something I do tomorrow.

Pinks are a little hard to find in January around my home. January is white month around here. However, I did find some pink delights in the master bath. I hope you enjoy.

I started working in my garden today, at long last. I had not done anything in the yard for a couple of months and it shows. I do have a gardener, but I really do all the moving and planting. The gardener is just in charge of clean up and the grass. Although, clean up has been hard because of the Santa Ana Winds. I have set a goal of pruning 5 roses a day. My hope is to be done by the end of January. Spring is right around the corner and I want my yard ready. Winter brings so much extra work, but it is all worth it when the new life appears.

As most of you know I am having a give away to honor my first year in blogging. Some one wrote me and said I needed to write 100 things about myself. It is a tradition in blogland. I am still thinking about that, I do not think I have 100 things that are interesting about me.

Anyway, here are the rules for the give away:

The give away 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!

Thanks for following me along my life's journey. You have taught me many things and I am looking forward to learning more from you. Blessings, Martha

Happy Pink Saturday Martha sweetie.
Oh my gosh you have so many beautiful pinks, I don't even know where to begin. I love the pink dishes, and I think the hand that holds the rings is my fav. I keep looking for one of those. I love the pink rose on it. It is so beautiful sweetie. I also adore the pink plate. Such a beautiful pastel shade of pink.

Thanks for sharing as always you have so many beautiful things to look at. Please add me to your give away, and I am already a follower.

Have a beautiful Saturday and thanks for sharing with me. Country hugs sweetie..>Sherry

Dear Martha,
I love that you still have some Christmas music here. All your pinks are gorgeous!! I am jealous that you are able to go out and work in your garden. Mine is burried under snow. Pink Blessings!

Claudia said...

Hi Martha! I guess I am just now getting caught up as I didn't know you were having a giveaway! I love Rachel Ashwell, but I've never seen that book. I already am a follower, of course, as you are one of my favorites.

You always have such beautiful pinks - I love the plate at the top - gorgeous! Enjoy the garden for me - the wind chill here is almost 0! Happy Pink Saturday, my friend!

xoxo
Claudia

Terri said...

I love your rose and gold plate! It is so gorgeous!
I am glad to hear you are out and about your garden a little. Don't overdue it :)
Have a fab Saturday!

ThriftyAnnabella said...

Great pinks - Happy Pink Saturday!

Mary said...

All those beautiful goodies live in your bathroom? That is some pretty powder room :)
Lots of gorgeous pink glass that I love.

Maybe you could just come up with 5 or 10 interesting things to write about yourself. 100 would take forever!!

Hope you and Noah had a great day together :)

Happy Pink Saturday~

I'm a day late and a dollar short with my Pink Saturday visits. The sun was shining too bright yesterday and just like a little kid I couldn't stop marveling at how lovely it was as it beamed through my lace curtains and puddled on the floor. My cats were in heaven.

So, here I am today, a little late but thinking that I got a bonus because I avoided all the traffic!

Lovely blog and the sweetest pinks that you shared. Thank you so much for making this such a lovely Sunday for me.

Oh I bet you had a great time with Noah. My husband and I also watched our two grand children yesterday and had a great time. You must have many rose bushes and I would love to see them all blooming. I haven't started pruning mine yet, maybe next month. Some are still blooming, but the job does need to be done. Your photos are beautiful and I enjoyed them, Happy Pink Saturday, Char

Jenny said...

Hmmm.... I thought I posted a comment! But if I didn't I was checking in for new posts and I read this before AND I still think it is gorgeous. Hope you're enjoying your January!

Bella said...

Hi Martha - I just love your pinks! You have such lovely pieces around your home. Please do enter me in your giveaway. That is the one Rachel Ashwell book I don't have. :) Hope you enjoyed your weekend.

mythoughtsmyvoice said...

The second pink plate is my fave. Although, have to say all of these pinks you've shared are really pretty. And breakables! Yikes! I'd have to be careful when walking past them :-)

WE don't have winter here and I think it's a good thing too as I'd probably won't survive the cold LOL Then again, you're right. It's nice to have something to look forward to - in your case Spring :-) Everything comes alive again :-)

Mizpah,
Li
