When life sends you rain...time to think PINK!

It was a dreary and gray day. We'd had so many days of rain and to make matters worse, our Direct TV was out. Not that I watch a lot of TV but I guess the dark skies were getting to me. I was so desperate I went searching high and low for my little pink TV I used in college...knowing there were only a couple days left of FREE broadcast TV, I enjoyed watching it for probably the last time.

Then I spotted these beauties while I was in the grocery store. How could I pass up a sale like this? 8.99 for a dozen. I had them in my basket quicker than you could say...well, PINK SATURDAY!

It has been so rainy and gray here too - and now it is 98 degrees and steamy. Nothing like a cheap, gorgeous bouquet to make you happier!

I clicked on your other blog - love the lady head vase. I just found one at a flea market myself..I had one when I was little, but who knows what happened to it. I see yours is sold :(

Happy PS!

Lovely pink blog post! Another Saturday, where I am taking in all of the pink and visiting some of the most lovely blogs in cyberspace. I need the pink this morning, it's all dark and raining outside. So thanks for the uplift☺

Wishing you and those you l♥ve a weekend filled with sunshine, good food and many, tender memories.

Of course, you can still use this little crochet edge on your daughter's socks! My grand-daughter is 4 and I still do her socks to match her Sunday dresses! In fact, I should do some for myself because we're never too old for a little something special!

Thank you for visiting my blog. I haven't had as much time as I would have liked to today to visit all the blogs but I'm sneaking in some time here and there.

Wow, that bouquet is beautiful!

♥ the pink TV . . . . I used to have one but in blue before someone stole it. LOL, a lot of good it'll do them now!!

Great post re the 4th of July!

So sad your little pink TV is unusable anymore! It is super cute! And the flowers are the best!
Happy Pink Saturday!

Jillian, your post made me smile this afternoon. What a delight. The roses are beautiful and so happy you didn't pass them up, now look what you will enjoy for days to come. I'm not a good one to hear about rainy days because we have so few of them and I love rain, thunderstorms and grey skies too. Happy Pink Saturday, Char

A crystal vase full of soft pink roses is the perfect way to brighten up a dreary day.

Your little pink TV is so cute. I know that you hate to see it become obsolete.

Best Wishes,
