Today our charming hostess with the mostest, Beverly has asked us to combine our love for Pink with some of our favorite things to decorate with! What fun.
First of all I'd like to feature some little beauties to sleep in, because don't we enjoy snuggling into that favorite flannel gown this time of year and hitting the sack after a long and exhausting day of cleaning, cooking, shopping, decorating and running ourselves ragged.
Something like this maybe? (actually I have a few that look kinda like this)
And you just gotta admit that this little vintage pretty does look darn comfortable.
But Whoa Nellie..........lookie here lookie here. This ain't your Grannies nightie.
What a difference 50 years in the fashion world has made.
And now on to my faves of all time decorations. The ones that speak to my heart.
This sweet Prairie Angel was made for me by my youngest daughter Shari in 1989. She had followed her navy husband to Norfolk and she had an 8 year old son, an 20 month old baby and expecting her third child on Dec. 17 and was barely 25 years old. She was lonely, unhappy and worked so hard in making this very special gift of love for her momma. We were living in northern California and my Mother had died the year before. Each time I look at it, I can imagine all the emotional hours she spent in cross-stitching the apron while tending to kids and on the verge of delivering another and the depression and sadness she was feeling after losing her beloved Grandmother and being away from family and it truly tugs at my heart making it my all time favorite.
This Mister and Missus ceramic duo is very heavy and was given to my Mom by my brother's oldest son when he was 3 or 4 years old, so it is probably around 37 years old. It is one of the few little things I have left that belonged to her.
And another little all time favorite. The baby food jar was made in '88 for me by my 7 year old Grandson, Joe (Shari's oldest) and sent to me from Virginia. I had not seen him in a couple of years so it really touched my heart. It had contained "Tang" Spiced Tea then. And the little red framed picture was made for me quite a few years ago by Lori my oldest daughter. I use it each year. So you can see by my showings and I'm sure it's the same with most of you that what we cherish most are the things given to us with the labor of love stamped on them.
What are YOUR favorites?
Have a Blessed Saturday and Lots of Fun looking at Favorite Decorations.
