Happy Easter

The sun is shining and you can actually start to see green grass. It is going to be a beautiful day. The church bells are ringing from the church next door and I am getting ready to go to the service. I love Easter hymns the best. It is spring!

I have a new energy and purpose in life and like the trees that are starting to bud, I too am budding. It is an exhilarating time. Thank you to all you have continued their journey with me. Your support has been invaluable. I look forward to a lot of new things but especially I look forward now to the start of the lawnsale season!!! After all, that is who I am, and that hasn't changed a bit.

Happy Easter friends and family.

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 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 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.
