Hello Pinkies! I bet you thought I forgot all about you today. No way, I have just been so busy. Had both of the Grandchildren yesterday and today, I also started a Shop Hop. It is a scrapbooking party. My friend Deby and I visited 4 shops today and took part in the festivities. Each store has a movie theme, with make and takes and giveways. We had so much fun, but I am worn out! We only have 35 to go! I have been doing a lot of scrapbooking, because I want to make scrapbooks for Christmas gifts. The best part of visiting all these stores, is all the pretty paper. I know I told you I collect paper. It never fails, each new store, means new paper.

I was thinking I would show you more of my Fenton Collection, but decided to give you a little peek of a other collection I have. Did I ever tell you I collect hands? Well I do, these are just a few. They are so fun to collect. I hope you enjoy the peek.

I hope you are having a great weekend. Don't forget about Tea Cup Tuesday, please spread the word. Have a wonderful week. Blessings, Martha

Hi Martha,

What a wonderful post and it sounds like you have been having a busy time. I loved seeing the photo of you and Mr Johnny Depp ~ lucky you.
Also seeing all your beautiful hands and rings and jewellery, they are lovely.

I hope that you are having a lovely weekend

Oh Martha. I WAS missing you. I thought, "I hope Martha's okay. No pink Saturday contribution." Oh, LOVED seeing your photo. You are so adorable. And the hands....ooooo lah lah. They are so, well,so manicured. Ha! Really, Martha, I LOVED that collection. Take care and have a wonderful Sunday. Love, Susan

Love the idea of collecting hands...Now who couldn't use a few extra hands around the house(hehe, sorry I just couldn't resist)... I LOVE that!!! How nice that would be on a dressing table or vanity... OH now I have a "new need"! LOVE you and Johnny, that needs to be framed...
Happy Pink Saturday Martha,

Hi Martha,
You have some wonderful hands there!
What a wonderful plan to make Christmas scrap books. All of a sudden I see Christmas flying around all over blogland and think: oh, summer, last forever, but of course it needs planning ahead if you want to make things. I am already brooding over my X-mas card.
Happy Sunday and hopefully I am able to return on your TT next.

Hi Martha... That's a lot of hands. How cute is that...and what a creative way to display jewelry or whatever else you want to!!!

I love scrapbooking. I have a whole bunch of scrapbooking supplies and photo albums that still need to be worked on. Visiting all those stores sounds like so much FUN. You are right about the pretty paper. It's hard to resist. I'd have to buy some, too!!!

Have a lovely Sunday. I'll be sure to be around for the tea fun on Tuesday. Love and hugs from Oregon, Heather :)

~From shopping, to collecting various lovely papers, to collecting hands, and of course..,last but not least, your collection of lovely teacups!.., Who knew?!

I happen to have a smallish collection of hands as well;perhaps one day soon I'll post pictures of them!
