WOOHOO...it's Pink Saturday!




Happy Pink Saturday to you all. A special thank you to Beverly, How Sweet the Sound, for hostessing this weekly event. Make sure you take a few minutes...or hours...to stop by Beverly's blog. The number of "Pink Saturday" participants is growing in leaps and bounds! I'm not sure what the skies are doing in your neck of the woods, but it's rather gray and gloomy here, in Connecticut, so a focus on PINK is the perfect remedy for the dreary weather.
As you may know, I have a thing about cut flowers: they make me a little sad. Last weekend a friend gave me some pink roses and I decided to practice my photography skills with them. I figured even I couldn't mess up too badly, with one of nature's true beauties. I was pleasantly surprised that the pictures came out fairly well. Last night I started playing with some "Playing with Brushes" images from flickr and I was quite pleased with the end result.
Regardless of what the skies are doing wherever you are, I hope your heart is feeling pink and perky this weekend!

  2. I haven't browsed the Pink Saturday Meme before - fun. Also, as I get into my Frugal Fashionista series, if you'd like to put together an outfit and send me the pic, I can post it and link to you. Hopefully, that would send lots of people to your site and maybe get you some clients? No promises, but would love to help. :)

  7. Love your pink. I should've joined this week. I had a perfect pink. The skies are gray here too. And we're getting slammed with rain. No complaints though. We need it. It's a blessing. Have a great weekend.

  27. It looks like you had a great time and turned out some lovely pictures too. I also hate to cut my flowers, but then, they stay on the vine and I don't get to enjoy them as much, who knows what the answer is, I guess I should have a cutting garden too, Happy Pink Saturday, Char
