A LITTLE PINK FOR PINK SATURDAY!















Hello my fellow Pinkies! I know I have been missing in action. I was not even sure I would post for this Pink Saturday, however, it's Pink Saturday! A woman has to do, what she has to do! I have been very ill all week. I have a bad Bronchitis, which the doctor said could turn into pneumonia if I did not take care of it. So, I have been in bed all week. Even if I wanted to, I do not have the strength to even wash dishes. So, I have been catching up on my movies, day and night. The chest pain does not let me sleep well even at night. I just look around and see all the things I have to do and then go back to bed. Today is the longest I have been up all week (maybe one hour). I had some pictures in the camera to show you for Pink Saturday. I don't even remember if you have seen them or not. If you are anything like me, you would probably forgot and they would be new anyway!

I have a great collection I want to show you next week of vintage pot holders. I will do it I promise. In the mean time, here are some goodies to see. You have to look for the pink this week, but there is a little in everything today. The vintage hand mirrors are on the wall in one of my bathrooms. I just love how they look. Do you see that green vase on the mantle? My sister-in-law gave that to me, it is plastic! Even up close you cannot tell until you pick it up! I just love how it looks. I have not changed things over for May, so you know I am sick. Those of you who follow my blog know I change everything around each month. It just seems with the Identity Theft thing still going on and now I am sick. It doesn't look good for May. June is coming and I will get my act together by then.

I hope to have "Mr. Linky" on Monday for you for Tea Cup Tuesday. Wasn't that a fun day? We almost had 60 people! It took me 2 days to visit everyone. I can't wait until this Tuesday to see what you do. You ladies are amazing. I just found a blog http://sweetjeanette.blogspot.com/. You have to look at Jeanette's April 6, 2010 post. It will blow you away! I have never seen so many tea cups!

Have a wonderful week. Please say a little prayer for me. Lots of hugs, Martha

You poor girl. You know stress can cause you to be sick. The hand mirrors on your wall look great! I hope things get better for you soon. Regards, Connie

GrannySue said...

Oh dear, I hope you are on the mend and continue to take care of yourself. That pneumonia can be a real sneaky little critter if you aren't careful. Those hand mirrors hanging on the wall -- backwards - you are a genius. Take care of yourself. All good thoughts coming your way.

Big get well soon hugs across the blogOsphere to you Martha!!
My sister gets bronchitis often and I know how easily it can turn into pneumonia so get back to bed and stop taking pictures :-)

You always go the extra mile showcasing your treasures and I dont think I could choose a favorite. We have 2 oak fireplaces similar to yours and I can see you love decorating them in grand style!!
Thank you for sharing such pretties today!!

Doni said...

Love and blessings,

Mary said...

Hi sweet Martha, I surely will say a prayer (or two ;) for you. My DH is just recouperating from Bronchitis and a double ear infection. I'm glad you're staying in bed so it doesn't get worse.
I love your celluloid mirrors and the green glass. It looked to me like Vaseline glass, which I love.
I look forward to seeing your vintage pot holder collection, as I love them!
I'm so sorry about the Identity Theft crap. I pray that gets taken care of, too. Feel better soon. Happy PS~

I'm lovin' those hand mirrors on the wall. Do you talk into them Martha?...lol I'm glad you stayed in bed in order to get better and I didn't have to come over and duct tape you down.
Have a wonderful, peaceful and restful weekend.

love ya,
bunny

Housewife Bliss said...

Martha I will be praying for you; thank you for joining in on my Fab Nest Friday blog hop. All the best, Coryanne

BECKY said...

Oh Martha, I'm so sorry you're sick. I've had bronchitis and pneumonia quite a few times, and my bronchitis was always way more painful and tiring than the pneumonia. I believe that we women get sick sometimes from stress, and just working so hard. In our minds, we don't feel as if it's "okay" to rest, therefore our bodies take over and MAKE us rest! I hadn't read about your identity theft, either, and am so sorry about that! Gosh, you've been through a lot. Try to take it easy and not worry about anything else...especially any kind of housework! (easy for me to say, huh?!) If I lived near, I would come over and help! P.S. I LOVE your vintage hand mirrors! Reminds me of my deceased grandma!

Dear Martha,

So sorry to hear that you have been sick and my thoughts and prayers are with you and hope that you will be feeling better soon.
Love your beautiful china plates and the dresser.

Happy week
Hugs
