Happy Pink Saturday!Pink Saturday,is hosted by Beverly of How Sweet The Sound.Click on her link to visit with other pink sat posters.Thank you to Beverly for hosting this fun event!
Welcome to another pink sat.This week I want to show you my pink kitchen curtains my mom of Shirl's Rose Cottage, just made for me.She made them from the pink tea pot fabric.I just love it !Thanks mom so much for making them for me.

I had lots more pics to post but Blogger is being a pain and won't work for me.....
It was a very bright , sunny,and hot day here today.So the sun is glaring in my pics.
Don't mind all the egg cartons we have about 100 chickens now,so lots of eggs.LOL

Notice the cookie jar, that was my grandmoms,I painted the lid when I first started painting, the pink vase I bought at goodwill for 49 cents last spring.The tea set with the pink roses is from my great aunts estate.
I collect pretty potholder then hang them from my cabinet door handles.I have touches of aqua through out my kitchen.

My Dear Friend Amy of Bunny Rose Cottage sent this beautiful Angel with Puppy to my family and I.The wording on the front of the angel reads "Your beloved friend walks with angels".Amy knows how much Duke meant to My family and I.I was so surprised to get my mail and find this dear package.Thank you so much Amy,you are such a thoughtful and kind loving friend.

Now have you noticed my Blog Makeover?Isn't it just so pretty?Sadie Lou Who of Lolli shops gave my blog a makeover.I just LOVE it.The colors are so me.My blog has been making me crazy latly and I just wasn't happy with it.I think its very cheerful thanks to Sadi.Thank you so much sadie.Your a sweet friend!

Oh Jennifer, I stopped by your Mom's blog and when I saw that teapot fabric I had to pop over here and see how they turned out. They are so precious, and I love your cottage. Everything is so sweet. I could spend hours just walking around looking at all of your beautiful things. Wonderful post, honey just wonderful. Happy PS. Country Hugs, Sherry

Hi Sweetie!

I LOVE those curtains Jen!! I have always loved that fabric and it looks just perfect in your home. Your kitchen is beautiful!! I love your cabinets. So warm and inviting. All of your beautiful touches just make it that much more perfect!!

Sadie did an AWESOME job on your blog!!!!! I LOVE the colors and the roses are just perfect for you!

I am so glad the angel arrived safely. When I saw it, I just had to get it for you and your family. I felt so awful about Duke as I know how much he meant to your family.

I love you sweetie!! You are such a special light in my life!!

Great Mama to make you the curtains. Had to laugh at the egg cartons. I use to have a big ol' stack like that myself. No chickens right now, but maybe in the future. You have a very cute blog, and I've always enjoyed your mother's. She's on my fav list. :)
