Welcome Back Pink Saturday

It is Pink Saturday.....oh Happy Pinkalicious Day! I know I have been a stranger to the blogging community but things are much better. The birds are singing, the days are getting longer and the snow is melting. (On a personal side note, the divorce will soon be final.) So with a breath of fresh air.......here I am back for my favorite way to spend a Saturday with the lovely hostess Beverly at How Sweet the Sound for the ever popular Pink Saturday.

A few months ago, my daughter and I were shopping at Goodwill, I know what a surprise. It was there that we spied this wonderful little beauty. I was thinking for re-sale at my shop, she was thinking for her bedroom. She won.

What was this fought over fabulous-pinkalicious-makes-you-giddy piece, you ask?

Just look at that sexy arm and leg.....................

The smooth shape and pattern detail.........

Perfect condition pillows and seams....................

Isn't she gorgeous? A mid-century Devan....perfect shape...no rips, tears, stains and the padding is great. Would you believe $39.00 before our Goodwill discount. For the moment it sits in the front parlor but will soon find it's way to a new apartment.

Doesn't this recall the set of I Love Lucy....can't you just picture Lucille Ball sitting here with drink in hand and wearing one of her fabulous fifties dresses.

I wanted to take a moment to say thank you to each and every one of you that posted such kind and understanding comments about my new status. It has been a little unsettling to say the least, but now, which each new day, the sun is shining and I am feeling good.

Okay I may not be Lucille Ball; however, I am in pink today. A new look for me and I am feeling pretty happy.

"Faith is not about everything turning out okay.
Faith is about being okay no matter how things turn out."

Enjoy your day and please be sure to stop by and see all the other folks for Pink Saturday. It is good to be back.

Got it at Goodwill

Sherrie, you're definitely Pretty In Pink! That's such a beautiful shot of you, and I'm so glad that you're back to blogging. We all care about you, and want to see you happy!
Oh my goodness, that really is an I Love Lucy sofa! It looks like it's in great condition, and it was a real steal too. It's nice that your daughter will have it, so that you can visit it!
xo,
Carol

Hi Sherrie! I just popped in from another blog and wanted to let you know how much I'm enjoying looking thru yours. That Pink couch is awesome and in such great shape! And What a great price.....very cool! I also read that you are going thru a divorce and even though I don't know your circumstances but I wanted to lend my support. I've been divorce 5 years and life is getting better and better. I've really discovered who I am and love my life. I've added myself as your newest follower. Hope you get to drop in and see me sometime. :)

The divan is divine! I know you will have much fun and adventure ahead of you, even though it's not easy to start over. Hugs.

Why buy something new when this is available. It might take a bit more shopping, but it's worth it!

Joy said...

I just stopped in and I don't know the details of the divorce, but I've been through one and they are a killer--but we make it through, don't we? Best wishes on your future and your store!
