It's Pink Saturday again and I had so much fun last week I thought I would join in the fun again! Thanks to Beverly at How Sweet the Sound for starting this fun event. Be sure to visit Beverly's blog to see a complete list of participants for this week.
Since I showed you the pinks in my bathroom last week, I thought that I would show you one of my guest bedrooms this week. This room is a work in progress.(actually - all of the rooms in my house are!) We moved here in June and we are still trying to put things together! There is so much left to do.
I am such a girly girl and wanted one room in my house to be really feminine. I can only do so much "girly" stuff in the Master bedroom. My husband is pretty good about letting me do whatever I want - but I try to tone it down for him. I decided to go all out in the guest room though. I still need to get a headboard for the bed yet, but it's a start!
I love the bedspread for this room - I was happy to find it at TJ Maxx (don't you just love that store?) I have put the softest sheets and blankets on this bed - I want our guests to be comfortable in here so they will stay a long time. ~smile~
I've had this picture for a long time and I am so glad that it works well in this room. I love bunnies and flowers - a perfect combination!
I bought this picture many years ago for my husband on our anniversary. I have always loved this passage from the Bible. One more picture for this room - I didn't know I had so much pink!
As I was looking around for pink in my house, I ran across this precious book. I bought this for my mother years ago. It is a journal that is made just for mothers to put their thoughts down so that children can hold onto memories when they may not be there to tell the tales of their lives.
My mother, as I have written about before, had been sick for a long time and we knew that her time with us was short. By giving her this book I was able to capture things about her that she had never told me before. I only wish I had given it to her sooner as her memory was starting to fade. What she did write I will always cherish. There are beautiful writings in this book about her relationships with her siblings and parents. It is such a treasure! The book asks questions that your mother is supposed to answer - such as:
- Describe one of your favorite dress-up outfits as a child. On what occasions would you wear it?
- Who was your favorite teacher and why?
- When did you first go to church - what are your first memories of church?
- What are the things you are most glad you tried?
I could go on and on! The questions in this book really help you to get to know the beautiful person that your mother was/is. It is priceless to me now!
If you haven't seen this book, I highly recommend getting this for your mother, or getting it for yourself to write in it for your children. I found the link on Amazon if you would like to look at it.
This cute little tea cup and saucer were given to me by my mother in law. It held a little tea rose bouquet. I love how unique it is! Right now it sits in my dining room hutch but I may end up putting it in my guest room. I may put it atop the nightstand with an african violet in the cup!
Of course Ginger wanted to show you her pink for today! How could anyone mistake her for a boy - She is such a little lady!
I hope that you enjoyed my "Pinks". Look for updates to come on my room projects - as I finish the rooms I will be showing you the end results!
