LIFE IS NOT MEASURED BY THE NUMBER OF BREATHS WE TAKE, BUT BY THE MOMENTS THAT TAKE OUR BREATH AWAY.

Pink Saturday

Happy Pink Saturday !!! I apologize upfront as I have a LOT of pictures today and if you are trying to visit 8o or so other members, this is time consuming, but I had a hard time picking this week. So, bare with me. :)

Firstly, Thank you SO Much, Miss Beverly being our wonderful Host and doing this each week. I know how much time is involved doing First Friday's only once a month, I cant imagine the time that she puts in out of love for each of us. So , Thank You Beverly and a Big round of applause and an extra hug for you sweet Lady. :)

Ok, First, New Pink Roses Christmas ornaments for eBay being listed Sunday evening. This is my third year on these patterns and they are just as sweet and timeless as they were three years ago, In my humble opinion. :)


Next, from an OLD post, a few of the vintage roses postcards and Christian ephemera


that I collect.
I have shown you a lot of the things I have painted this last year and thought I would show you some of my other side. The paper art that I have done this year. There have been literally hundreds of pieces, so I just picked out a few PINK ones. :)
Sweet Tags :
One of my Favorite Collages .......................................................

A sweet Cherub Party Hat that I made for a Give Away last Valentines ,
Fun Huh ??? What a FUN year creatively !!! I only hope that this next year brings fresh ideas and lots of good health days in which to complete them all.

I wanted to share a canvas that I worked on for charity a few years ago. This thing went around the Country 13 times !! :) It was donated and auctioned off for Operation Helmet for our troops, so that each and every one of our troops can have the equipment that they need to do what they have been called to do. God Bless each and EVERY one of them, I am SO proud, thankful and Grateful. There are several bloggers that were at the time in an ebay group called P.E.P. Like Our Sweet Dolly, and Holly, Karen, Jen, and Celeste. I paint Tiny roses , so My wee little rose is sort of squeezed in there. Plus I was one of the last on the list to receive it, so there was very little room for me, which worked out perfectly. :) Another sweet Blogger was the High Bidder and selflessly donated it to a Hospital here in town. I believe it went a Cancer ward. You can click on this for a larger view.
This same group ( P.E.P ) holds a Multi Seller auction every October for the Susan G. Koman Foundation to help in the fight towards Breast Cancer. This year our auctions run Wednesday October 15th - Sunday the 19th. PLEASE mark your calender and go bid on these auctions. We have raised thousands of dollars each year and this is something that is important and touches us all.



Ok, a Sneak Preview of what is coming to my Etsy with a few SURPRISE things !! I am SO excited I cant stand it, AND, my next post which will be the Big Reveal, is my 100th post, so I am having yet ANOTHER give away !! Can you stand it ?? lol !!! :)


My .25 cent purchase this week. :)
And FINALLY, my last Pink item. ( And you thought you were trapped her for the WHOLE bloomin' day !! lol !! These are my Pink Beauty secrets. Living in the Dry, Scorching heat here in Nevada I have relied on these two Miracle Youth Cures for the last twenty or so years and YES they work. :)
Do I really look 65 ????


lol, Well, I am 42. lol !!! Please be kind !! :) And that Concludes the Plethera of Pinkness here on my Blog . Please if you are Still awake, go say Hi to all of the other Sweet Pink Girls. :)

Hugs,

Rhea

Kathy said...

All beautiful, Rhea! Every time I visit you I have meant to tell you that the pretty sugar eggs you have on your banner bring back such wonderful memories for me. My mother made the most gorgeous sugar eggs I've ever seen. She is and always has been a pink freak and her decorated sugar eggs were always pink and white and filled with bunnies and flowers! I've enjoyed seeing yours!
Happy Pink Saturday!

Everything is GOR-GE-OUS!!!
I've used Oil of Olay for years, even as a young lady. I wouldn't confess it for years, because I thought people would think I was "old" if I used it. Nope, keeps you looking young! :)
