Let's go pink with Eloise at The Plaza

Coffee of the Day - Vanilla Macadamia

In honor of Pink Saturday, I am going to share with you some beautiful PINK news! I originally had another post planned for today, but as soon as I saw this news release...... well, you will see why it is so perfect!

Eloise comes to The Plaza - for REALS! :)

Starting at a mere $2045 per night, you and your DD can stay in the new Eloise Suite, designed by Betsy Johnson. Your DD will have her photograph taken upon arrival, which will later be presented to her framed. Once you get to the Suite, you will be greeted with pink striped walls trimmed in gold leaf, a chandelier with pink light bulbs, king sized bed with pink paadded headboard, and zebra print carpets. Your DD can then sign the official guestbook and snuggle into her very own Eloise robe. Various gift items in the package include a disposable Eloise camera, your own copy of the book, notecards, and a $100 gift card to spend. Perfect for any little Eloise in the making who wants to utter those famous words, "Charge it!" Click here for more info and to make your reservation. tee hee hee!

by the way, if any of the staff are asked where Eloise might be at that particular moment, they have been known to say, "in Europe," "shopping on Madison Ave.," or on a horse ride.

Since I don't have a DD, do you think they would let me stay in the room?! giggles!

I want to ride my bicycle, I want to ride my PINK bike! :)

Coffee of the Day - Toasted Coconut

Welcome to another beautiful PINK SATURDAY!!!!! I know I say it week after week, but gosh, I love these days! :)

Still not doing so well health-wise, but won't go into that icky poo stuff here. needless to say, my few attempts at crafting didn't get completed. So today I share with you another beautiful photo or two that I came across this past week.

I haven't spent loads of time online lately, but I did happen across this store called Out of the Blue. The actual store site is down for renovation right now, but they still have some wonderful photos of the beauties housed inside........ oh to my delight, they have a glorious PINK bicycle! how much fun would that be?!?! to toodle around town, up to the library, to the post office, on a precocious pink bicycle!

So I will hold onto that lovely thought in my mind..... and also let you know that hubby actually thought the pink kitchen from last week was pretty cool..... you never know! ;)

Happy Pink Saturday, all of my precious friends!

I'm dreaming of a lovely pink kitchen.....

Coffee of the Day - Caramel Frap (hubby brought me a Starbuck's - what a sweetie!)

Happy Pink Saturday to you! Isn't it beautiful?! I really do look forward to Pink Saturdays all week long, as I have mentioned many times before.

Unfortunately this week I have been plagued with my seizures and some other ickies, so crafting did not get done..... sorry. I had great intentions, but just wasn't able to follow through as I needed to spend as much time in bed as possible. I haven't had a chance to leave comments from last week either, but have saved all of your info if you stopped by & will be around as soon as I'm able to say hello. I do so appreciate your kind words ! thank you! :)

So this week I browsed a few of my favorite sites and came across some beautiful pink inspiration for you today. never fails to bring a smile to my soul. my shabby chic/vintage heart just soars as I browse the pages and see so many pretties. I thought I would share one of my faves with you today - my dream kitchen. I know that no reality exists that would ever allow my guys to give me a pink kitchen. David asked me to go to Home Depot a month or so ago and bring home a few paint colors that I might like for the kitchen cabinets. I was a bit sassy and only brought home pinks - every range imaginable. you should have seen the look of horror on his face! :) tee hee hee! I can be soooooooooo bad sometimes!

give yourself a moment to dream of your perfect little pink getaway....... and who knows? maybe one day it will be yours! dreams CAN come true! :)

Oh Hello, Pink Saturday!

Coffee of the Day - French Vanilla

It's a beautiful Pink Saturday, and oh, how I have missed them! I just love so much the idea of Pink Saturdays..... to celebrate the pinkness in our world.... the beauty of all that is feminine.... of what makes our hearts soar, our souls sing out to God! gosh, the glory of it all is amazing! :) and I am happy to say that I have signed on to celebrate every one in the future with abandon! I hope you will join me!

My card this week is a re-run..... and it is because I am mailing it out toute de suite to a precious little girl who is in need of some cheering. I am trying to send out as many cards in my stash. I am still making new ones, too, but cards that just sit in a box need a loving home to really fulfill their purpose, and I just learned of this little girl, Grace, on Friday. You can read more of her story here on Jennifer McGuire's blog, but in essence, her twin sister, Ellie, recently lost her battle with cancer. Jennifer is trying to collect as many cards as possible to send to 10 year old Grace. I thought that this adorable twirling fairy from The Stamping Boutique might brighten her day. It's full of pinkness and flowers and lots of shimmery shine, so hopefully that will at least bring a bit of a smile.

Papers are Basic Grey and flowers are Prima. Punches are Stampin' Up! and EK Success.

May you have a most beautiful Pink Saturday!

OWH Birthday Blog Tour!

Coffee of the Day - Vanilla Macadamia

Welcome to my stop on the Operation Write Home blog tour celebrating America's birthday! oh gosh, it makes me so proud to be an American! :) I love it every time I see a flag waving in the wind, a soldier in uniform, hear 'The Star Spangled Banner'! I might not agree with every policy or politician, but I whole-heartedly love this country and what we are founded upon!

I made a card to celebrate birthdays using these great digi images from Squigglefly. Nothing fancy, but I tried to pack it with a whole lot of fun! :) and of course every birthday needs cake AND balloons! since this is going to a soldier stationed overseas, I couldn't use glitter for my little accents, so I used my white gel pen instead. My card is also for the Grand Opening challenge going on over at the Squigglefly group at PCP. the challenge is to create a happy celebration project. I hope you will come join us for the fun and some way cool freebies!

Everyone have a glorious weekend! much love to you all! :)
