FENTON IN PINK!




Hello Ladies! Another weekend, another Pink Saturday. I have never been able to go through all the blogs that post for Pink Saturday, have you? It is so wonderful to know that there are so many of us Pinkies out there. One week, I am going to give it my best shot and visit everyone.





This week I am sharing some of my Fenton collection. I hope you enjoy them. I love how dainty Fenton is. I want to thank Beverly for hosting this fun event each week.





Last Saturday, I had breakfast with some of my family. Remember a couple of months ago, I asked you to pray for my Father-In-Law, Al? He had two heart attacks in one week. Well, look at him now. Praise the Lord, he is doing so well. Al is the only father I have now. My own father has gone to be with the Lord and Al has been there for me ever since. I could not love him more or ask for anyone better. God knew what He was doing, when He gave me Al as a Father-In-Law! Do you remember Sarah, the niece that was going to get married? I showed you all the beautiful wedding dresses she tried on. Next month is Bobby and Sarah's big day. The two looked so happy. The other gal in the picture below, is my beloved sister-in-law, Maureen. that I talk about all the time. I am the one that looks short in the middle. I am really quite tall, it is the angle LOL! We had a great visit, a wonderful way to enjoy a weekend.




Have a fun weekend. Don't forget about Tea Cup Tuesday. The last picture is of a project I am currently working on. It is a vintage key ring. I am selling them on Ebay. I think they are turning out very cute. Wish me luck! Blessings to you, Martha

Happy Pink Saturday Martha Sweetie...
What a beautiful share today. I love your shaded pink Fenton, but I have to tell you that blue one really tugs at my heart. How beautiful it is. I love the way you strung a little strand of beads or pearls along the way, so creative and displays so well.

I love that you are really tall. I am 5 ft. 2. I would say you may even be a little shorter than me sweetie. Us short gals have to stick together. You look precious.

Have a gorgeous Pink Saturday. Please stop by and let me share mine with you.

Country hugs...Sherry

You always have so many lovely pieces to share each time I stop by your place. The photos of your family show how happy and blessed you are, too.

I think those key chains might be a big seller on ebay.

Happy pink Saturday. Now all I need is a rocking horse day, and at least you know why I don't collect breakables. The rocking horses would stampede the house and break all the glass (grin).

Doni said...

i first heard of Fenton glass on QVC. i think i have one piecetake care

A Hopeful Heart said...

Rejoicing with you over how well your father-in-law is doing. Also rejoicing with you that you have such a wonderful FIL. I think I have the best FIL in the entire world (mother-in-law too!!), so, how wonderful that you have an incredible one too.

I remember my grandmother having some pretties that looked like your Fentons. Unfortunately, when she passed away, most of her collectibles were given away to the American Cancer Society Thrift Store, as no one in the family wanted them. Now, I wish I had all that stuff that I gave away. They are all so pretty.

Blessings,
Patti
