Seeing Pink



This is my first attempt at Pink Saturday! I had trouble coming up with something for the post. The first problem being that I am not a great story teller, the second problem my camera is getting on my nerves! I just can't seem to get a good picture with it for some reason, so hubby and I are going to go camera shopping within the week, I just can't take it any more. LOL...


Happy Pink Saturday

Oh, how I love these beautiful baby shoes. These were my first pair of shoes ever, they are so gorgeous in all of there satin and lace finery. They are the oldest pair of shoes I own, almost 53 years old and I am so thrilled that they are just as beautiful as the first day they went on my teeny, tiny, little feet. Such a thrill to be able to still have these, makes me smile everyday!




I love my sweet cherub girl. She is so beautiful. She has a little note with her "Love is Patient", so true!



Who doesn't love teacups and ribbons in pink?


Oh, Miss Flowers in all her glory. I bought this sweetie for my mother many years ago, I just love her. She is really special and so adorable.



This sweet baby in her pretty pink dress belonged to my mother. She loved to collect things and loved dolls.




Teddy with all of his pink pretties.

How absolutely wonderful! Beverly sure knew what she was doing when she created a place for all of us "pinkies" to congregate and share our "pinkness".

For having a difficult time...you sure knocked my socks off ☺

Happy Mother's Day to you. I hope you find yourself surrounded by those you love, good food, and a gentle peace in your ♥. We don't need to be a mother to know a mother's life. After all we all started out with a mom, didn't we?☺

Dru said...

Hi Debby, Welcome - love all your pinks - the collage is wonderful, the shoes, oh so sweet. Such an enjoyable post to peruse. Have a wonderful weekend, Happy Mother's Day and Happy Pink Saturday!!

Oh my.. I just can't decide WHICH pink thing I LOVE best!! I think I love them ALL!! Happy Pink Saturday, and have a wonderful weekend!

Welcome! I think you did rather well with your Pink Saturday pictures, but a new camera is so much fun. I read one blog that is comprised of mostly pictures. I love it. I think I am far too much of a talker to just post pictures. I want to tell you all about them.

Happy Pink Saturday!
Erin :)

Beautiful first Pink Saturday post. Love all the pictures, but I must comment on the darling shoes. They are so pretty. It reminds me I have one of my baby shoes. Don't know whatever happened to the other one, but I'm glad I have at least one. It's over 70 years old. I also have a bonnet that belonged to my dad when he was a baby. It's over 90 years old.
Happy Pink Saturday.

Welcome to Pink Saturday !!! It's good to have you and to see all your beautiful pinks. If I were forced to choose a favorite in your pinks..(I love them all)..it would have to be the teeny baby shoes. They're just beautiful. Happy Pink Saturday..and may your Mothers Day be wonderful..

Beautiful PINK post! Happy first PINK Saturday! ☺ Diane

ps I can sympathize about the camera. I have 2 & don't like either one. I've resorted to taking pictures with each on & then chosing the ones I like the best... sad...

So many pretty pinks. I like your poem about Mother. I still have mine and am so blessed to be used now to help her. She is 83, had hip replacement and is legally blind. But she is cheerful.

God is so good to me.

Charlene said...

Debbie thank you for stopping to see me for Pink Saturday. I am glad you enjoyed the gardens. I too am new to Pink Saturday. This was only my second time. I love your baby shoes. If you note my post of today I did a little art project with a baby shoe. And I have another photo of some vintage shoes on my sidebar but, don't have any of mine. You are so lucky to have them.

I too am really wanting to upgrade my camera & my skills. Thinking of taking a photography class. Never enough time to do all that I want to. Have a great week.

Melly said...

Hi Debbie, thank you so much for taking the time to visit with me and for you sweet comment. Happy 1st Pink Saturday to you, all your pink treasures are just gorgeous and whats even better is that they have sentimental value which is so precious.
I hope you have had some luck finding a new camera.
Have a wonderful rest of the week!
Melly:)
