Pink Saturday ~ Mini Shoe Collection & An Award!

Hello and welcome to my Pink Saturday post, hosted originally for us Pink Ladies over at Beverly's How Sweet the Sound. I look forward to these posts because well, obviously I love the color pink! It is such a soothing color to me. I have the usual items in pink: handbags, some clothing, some high heels, jewelry, baseball caps, etc. But when I discovered I could collect mini pink high heeled shoes....oh boy! Watch out!

Here is what I have so far. Not a very large collection but enough to fill this small curio:

Also today I'd like to present an award, given to me by sweet Mary over at Crash n Smash.

This is the Pink Lemonade Award. How appropriate on Pink Saturday! Thank you, Mary! How sweet! Now I of course, I want some Pink lemonade!

Here is the official info on the award:

Old Fashioned Pink Lemonade Recipe
1 1/4 cup sugar (if using unsweetened cranberry juice, 1 cup if using sweetened)

4 cups water (divided)

1 cup cranberry juice

1 cup lemon juice


1 Make a "simple syrup" by heating sugar and 1 cup of the water in a small saucepan until the sugar is completely dissolved. Remove from heat.

2 Stir together the remaining water, cranberry juice, lemon juice and simple syrup. Make adjustments to taste. Chill for an hour, or add ice to cool.

Serves 6.
