Pink Saturday – the last one this year!


Just don’t know where the holiday season has gone! This year has been a lot of fun. Seeing what everyone else has done and sharing mine has made the holidays very special. Stepping into everyone’s homes has made it seem like we have gone to so many holiday parties when in reality we have spent some delightful time at home just the two of us. We celebrated the holiday itself with close friends and will celebrate the New Year with friends as well. We missed family and friends up north but June will be here before we know it.
Each Saturday Beverly at How Sweet the Sound  hosts Pink Saturday. This is a fun event and during this holiday season we are taking some liberty with “pink” so red is very permissible.
This year I even decorated the powder room. Machine embroidered guest towels share the spotlight with a plaid ribbon covered glass tile and plaid guest towels.
I shared with you how wrapping is a struggle for me. Well, this year I really concentrated and the presents looked much better!
I think that happened because the bears helped!L1020031
Little Miss Prissy whom you have met before supervised and Sidney and Perry (the bears I made) offered a lot of encouragement.
So today my sister and her husband will stop by on their way further south and then tomorrow Jack and I will put the decorations away until next year. Have a wonderful Pink Saturday!

I think your wrapping looks wonderful. I'd happily unwrap one!

In fact I've loved unwrapping your blog posts this year. Thanks for all you share with us.

Your home looks very festive and your pacakges looks so beautiful! I usually take lots of time wrapping presents but this year everything was rushed and I simplified. It all works out well in the end ;-)

You made those delightful Bears? They are fabulous!

Happy Pink Saturday!

Apologies for not visiting until mid week, what with last night's snow fall and making sure all the decorations are down by Epiphany the week is just flying by.
Anyway, I think your cadeaux all looked wonderful in their pretty Christmas wrappings and I'm sure the bears added that extra little bit of "je ne sais quoi" too!
