Pink Saturday

Hi everyone,
Happy Pink Saturday
So nice to have you stop by
I hope you leave a comment. I will leave you one also

Thank You Beverly for all your time and work for making Pink Saturday
I look for ward to it every week. I look for something pink and detail. That is one of the thing I need to do . I do not pay much attention to detail so need to work at that.

The dolls are a few from my collection of dolls .The Blondie is wearing a dress my granddaughter Jessie wore when she was about four years old, she loved Disney, she is now twenty
The doll wearing the shirt dress ,Jillian wore a few years ago. The dark hair one is wearing a watch I had when I was little. My mother saved it for me .I'm sure glad she did. It is a yellow elastic band with a plastic watch.( You see I come by it naturally saving things) Maybe one of you will remember them.
The red head is wearing a outfit I recycled. I do have fun with them. Me and Jillian changed them for Pink Saturday.

They all look like movie stars. The picture was taken in our back yard it was nice day to be outside.

I have had a great week Spending days with granddaughters Jillian and Jessie shopping. Did school shopping .First day school dresses and supplies. Worked on Jessies blog Check it out I think she did good. It is very helpful.
Today me and Jillian played Cake Boss( it is a show on the food channel)
Here are pink cupcakes she made. She had to make a display. Also made some pumpkin. Did you know there is no can pumpkin around since last Nov?
This next week Jillian is staying longer.

I received my Christmas in July swap gift.. I love the elves I mailed mine today .
I hope Elaine Likes mine as much as I liked what she sent.After she received mine I will post both. It was fun Now I'm going to help my friend do things for her holiday craft shows .Making holiday arrangements she has allot of vintage and fun thigs to use. Will be fun.

Hope you all have a great, fun ,and safe week
