Hi Happy!!!! Girl, if I had a relative that worked at the Dollar Tree I could visit and shop all at once. It's always exciting to see what new thing has come in. Love your pink posts, your home is amazing. I was touched by the story of your doll. I'm glad you still have a part of it to remind you of your Grandmother's love.

Chris said...

Hi Gloria, thanks for your visit. I'm getting ready to go to the Dollar Tree, only been wanting to get there for 2 weeks. My party is over now and I already have my outfit for tonight's party, so I'm going to do something for me today. Come go with me.

Hugs,
Chris

I am going to wrap a pink knit scarf around my neck today - we had 2-3 inches of snow last night. I am certain our mountain must have received over three feet. It opens tomorrow officially for the skiers. My daughter and grandchildren will be there for sure. I did find the purple ribbon for the sidebar of my blog, but had to settle for saving it as a picture and inserting it that way into my post. For some reason I am having problems inserting any kind of "code" into my blogs. I'll keep on plugging away at it! Thank you for the kind words dear Gloria.

Sue said...

Mornin G!! Girl you got me rolling on the floor this morning!! I know what you mean girl, it usually happens when I'm shopping with friend Carol, I am soooo picky about where I eat and pee!!! I have walked into a restaurant before and didn't like the way it looked or smelled and walked right out! And a dirty bathroom, no way, I gotta be busting before I'll go into a yukky bathroom, and I always put tons of toiletpaper or paper towels on the seat!! I'm sorry about your monitor and pictures! I've had this computer going on 3 years and no problems yet, knock on wood! I'm heading out to do some shopping today, antique co-op, hope I find something GOOD!! Have a good one sweetie!! xoxoxo

I see you like the Victorian look....me toooo. There is just something about it I love.....I have a coat that my grandmother won at a raffle when I was a little girl....I should dig it out. I have it somewhere. If I remember right it was pink.....
I think I will be painting the vanity a cream color.....I have Pink glass knobs I want to put on it...we'll see. I just go with the flow when I get started on something.
Happy PS...
Hugs,
Mo :-)

happy pink saturday!

onlymehere said...

She is a beauty and I can't believe you still ahve that hat! Sorry about the robbery, that must have been emotionally devastating if not financially so. I laughed at your comment you left me about needle threaders. I can't use them either, they FRUSTRATE ME! And forget about stitching with a magnifying glass in front of my face hanging from my neck!! I actually bought a sewing machine that is self-threading last year but hadn't used it until the past couple of weeks. I loved my 30-year-old one but it has to go to the shop for a repair so I pulled out the other one. This new one is nice so I may give the other to my daughter. We'll see how expensive the repair is! Thanks for stopping by. Cindy

GA Gloria!
Great post! Could you show more pictures of the gorgeous wooden girl? I'd like to see a side view. How old is she???

It rained last night but it's sunny & windy today. How's your weather? Think it will be ok for your swap meet tomorrow? ♥

Hi Gloria! I hope you had a great Pink Saturday! Love all your pretty pinks especially the pink doll with the bunnies. She is precious!..Christine

Glenda said...

Glad you were at least left with the bonnet. They do say half a loaf is better than none. So sorry some low life took your precious mittens.
Susan had a set that Mother crocheted for her, but instead of mittens her set included booties.

Sweetie said...

The Victorian lady given to you by your mother facinates me. Please show it again on another post. The pink parasol is elegant. Your post is lovely.

That pink parasol is so pretty. I have been looking for one but can't find one anywhere. Love the little pink doll your mother gave you.

Gollum said...

A lovely Pink Saturday. I adore that sweet baby hat and the way it's draped. It looks so enchanting. Come get your dish addict award!

Hey Gloria,

Beverly said...

Happy Pink Saturday, Gloria. As you can see, I am still visiting on Sunday.

I am so glad that you still have your hat. What a precious treasure.

Bo said...

Oh Gloria, I'm so sorry someone robbed you of probably a lot of treasures...Luckily the little hat wasn't among them...what a great memory you still have in it. ;-) Bo

Melissa Miller said...

Hi G,
You were robbed! Oh boy...

I went grocery shopping now I got tons of laundry to do, the husband has got me on the brink of a breakdown, he has filled the basement with his fleamarket workclothes and I can barely find the washer!! HELP!!!! xoxoxoxo

Joy said...

Hi Gloria, your painted wooden little girl from your mom is so sweet and that much more special I'm sure in that it's from a loved one. And that baby hat - just too sweet.

Sue said...

Mornin Gloria! Girl I am so jealous you got snow! I bet its gorgeous up there in the mountains! Stay warm and cozy in your old red robe today, don't try venturing out or you'll slip and fall and then Len will have to scoop you up, then he'll fall and you'll both be in the hospital with broken bones and you'll miss the big boys arrival, WHEW!!! Stay in G!!!! LOL!!! xoxoxo
