PINK Saturday ~ August 9, 2008


Today I decided to go around my home and see what other pink goodies I could come up with and lo and behold...I have so many little floral arrangements in pinks of varying colors...I thought it might be fun to show them off to you. So I hope you will sit back with your cold/hot cup of coffee or tea and enjoy my Pretty Bouquets of Pinkness.

This vase was something my mom recently gave me. I know its over 50 years old cause it was a wedding gift. I sure love its fan shape and color!
This is a beautiful Tea Cozy that my sis gave me a few years ago. It has the prettiest PINK rose pinned bouquet on it!
This pretty vase, which is part of my growing pottery collections sits below my Singer sewing machine with these pretty PINK flowers!
A PINK spray of roses over one of my favorite pictures. This print was given to me many years ago by my grandmother who is 94. But the coolest part of it is this is a wonderful depictions of what someone thinks Jesus might look like, but it is done with the entire Words from the Book of Luke. Isn't that just the coolest thing?

These dried roses were from a bouquest that my dear hubby gave me. I always try to save them and use them somehow in my home. I painted the small clay pot and the decorated this all up.

Hope you have a blessed weekend...Happy PINK Saturday to all!

Beautiful! I especially love the arrangements in the aqua vases. And you've inspired me with the vase underneath the sewing machine. I must do that!

Susie was in FYNA today and there was another "Lorena" in the shop at the same time. When you see her, ask her about it.We both heard her husband call out her name and we both just looked toward the door expecting you to walk in. It was very funny!

bj said...

Your bouquets are just beautiful.
Sorry to be so late getting to look at your PINKS but there were so many and I am just not very fast.
hugs, bj

Sharon said...

It's all so pretty. I do especially love the aqua cornucopia in the first photo.

My Arts Desire said...

What a lovely post. I was fascinated with the rendition of Jesus. I enlarged it to see if I could see more detail...I bet it is even more amazing in person.

I'd say you qualify as a PINK KIND OF GIRL with all your bouquets...such a happy color!

Blessings on your day,


Hi Dear Freind,
I rec'd a special gift in the mail today:) Thank you for the sachet and note pad. That was very special and unexpected, and loved:)
I would love to see the picture of Jesus with the writing on it, close up. I hope you had a good weekend. I sure had a Great Monday. Hugs,Deb

Those are all so beautiful!

Jan and Tom's Place said...

Hi Lorena...

Don't know how I missed your "PINK" on Saturday...gorgeous!

You're on our prayer list today, on our blog post DAY OF PRAYER.


Jan and Tom's Place said...


I have known that *FEAR* many times and trusted the Lord the past 5 years I've been saved...and it's much easier NOW than it was THEN.

You and Hubby will be in our prayers.

Thanks for praying for everyone. I know the list is getting long! That's OK...that just means I may have to tighten it up a bit and post it differently! Easier to read.



Hi Lorena,
Just read that you could some prayer, so dear friend, I'm praying for you. :) Email me if you want.Love, Deb

Margie said...

There's nothing like *pink* flowers to make you smile! They are all so pretty! I love the lampshade!

Jan and Tom's Place said...

Hi Lorena...

Since I'm not around alot during the day anymore...I'm asking that everyone participating in COME TO JESUS have their posts up and running no later than 9am Eastern time. This will free me from having to check and make sure your link is up when you post.

You can do your post way in advance and set it up by clicking POST OPTIONS in the lower left corner of your new post...and then set the date and time and it will automatically post.

Thanks for your understanding.

Let me know if you will be doing this and joining us NEXT week.

I can NEVER get enough pink! Woo Hoo!

That pic from your Granny is so special. It's wonderful that you have it and I'll bet you think of Granny every time you look at it.
