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

Pink Saturday

I have random Pinks to share this week for Pink Saturday, Hosted by Miss Beverly of How Sweet the Sound.

I was ill all week, then felt better today so I went to my Mom's house as she is teaching me to oil paint ! Yippee !!! Today I just got a feel for the paint, next time I will try and concentrate on her instructions and not rush through to finish :) I am used to instant gratification with acrylics, so waiting WEEKS between layers is going to help me work on the Patience thing The Lord has been TRYING to teach me :) Hee hee !!

So, Ta Da !! Here is my first oil painting !! :)
I may go back and tweek it later, as now that the Turpentine High has worn off, I am thinking it is a bit simple and looks like it needs something.


Ok, on to the Pinkage. Pink vintage dolls that have been restored. The first is a 1950's 8" Pam Walker doll. These are more collectible if they are Ginny's or Muffy's, but Miss Pam is a sweetie pie too, Pedigree NOT needed in this household. :) I have about fifteen in different stages of restoration. To learn more about these dolls and other Hard Plastic Vintage dolls, this is a great link HERE.
Sweet Bridesmaid doll in Pink :)

Antique Pink mercury glass garland for my tree. I need to restring and mix these two strands together :)A few Pink Faux Cookie tags. I am always making odds and ends and including them in my packages when people buy things. These I made up for Valentine Sales :) ( Pardon the light, I took these at night, nothing beats daylight for pictures ! )


And lastly, look what came in the mail today ??? A Gift from a SWEET Girl in Idaho who KNOWS I positively DROOL over ANYthing that is painted by Sonie Ames !! Cant WAIT to frame these !!! Thank you sweet Chick !!!! :) :) :)
I need to take one of THESE to my Mom's house for Oil Paint class inspiration :)

Anyhoo. That is my pink this week. I have been SO busy in-between NAPS :) finishing up my giveaway box and two swaps I joined. Cant wait to show you :)

My Pink Saturday Special Blogger is Lorena , please go say Hi !! :)

Please link back to Miss Beverly and all of the other pink Posters !! :) Happy Saturday !!

Hugs,

Rhea

I ♥ to come here on Pink Saturday. Your blog is always so sweet and comforting. Cold and gloomy winter up here this year so Pink Saturday is one day I can always count on for a little pink ray of sunshine.

Oh, my, today your blog was literally littered with such darling pinks! I wish someone would teach me how to paint...sigh.

Thanks for being my pink sunshine today☺

Wishing you the comfort and warmth of those you love this weekend.
