Hello Ladies: Happy Pink Saturday! I have a lot to share, including some very pretty pinks. I do want to tell you what has been going on my life this week. On Tuesday afternoon, my identity as stolen. Someone had made copies of my checks and where cashing them all around the country. Coast to coast, in 48 hours, my all accounts were being violated. Some sweet heart even scheduled an "open house" for the sale of my home. It was a nightmare, that I think I have finally stopped. If that is not enough, we still have not heard back from a very serious test my daughter, Vanessa, took over a week ago. (Stress!) I also had a serious test done yesterday, still trying to find out why I am so dizzy. My Noah got sick this week, and the air conditioner broke down in my car. My son's car got towed. Welcome to a day in the life. All I can say is " I will bless the Lord at all times and His praise shall continuously be in my mouth!" Wow, it has been an very interesting week of challenges to say the least!
So ladies, on that note, I think I will share some Pink Saturday items. I did change things around my home this week. I had to stay home to keep anyone from selling it while I was away. I visited Beth at http://thegypsyfish.blogspot.com/. In case you did not know, she does a Silver Sunday, I may just join soon. I have recently really be interested in Sterling Silver. I am trying to find out if any of my silver ware is valuable.
I never studied silver, so there is a lot to learn. Her followers are amazing. They freely share information on how to care for, and what to look for, when purchasing antique silver. If you have a little time, it is very interested reading. Very amazing ladies!
Any way, the pinks I am sharing are on a side table in the living room. I just love the rose tea cup. I had other pieces to this set, but I broke them. There are some pretty paper weights. Did I ever tell you I collect paper weights? Well, you guessed it I do. I have some in every color, but my favorites are always the ones with the pinks. (Surprise!) I should do a post just on them one day. Please take your time and look around. I am keeping the prayer list up for a while longer so, please feel free to let me know if you want to be added.
Did you notice the large picture of the lady drinking tea? That was a gift from my hubby. It is one of my favorites things, but it is so hard to photograph. I hope you can get an idea of it's beauty. I think it is so wonderful that everything in my house has a story. That may be part of my problem, but let's not discusses this now. I am feeling pretty good, and it was a hard week.
Of course, don't forget Tea Cup Tuesday! Mr. Linky will go up on Monday and we want lots of ladies playing. Weren't the cups amazing this last week? I can't wait to see what you are going to share next. Remember you are loved! Blessings, Martha
