It's PINK Saturday!! If you love all things PINK....head on over to Beverly's and check it out, click on the pretty pink lady above and you will be transported to PINK heaven!!
I have been putting up my tree and it always seems like such a chore. Then comes the moment when I get to open the boxes with all my pretty ornaments collected over the years, and it's "hello old friends". This pretty angel is my favorite of all. Isn't she lovely? My son bought her for me at a Christmas store. It was the first time any of my children bought me a gift with their OWN money. Not from saved up allowance or money that Dad gave them to buy something for Mom. No. This was with his own money from his first real job.
I was admiring this beautiful Angel and she was just TOO expensive. My son was so proud to be able to give me something he knew I wanted, he was just beaming!
When I got her, she did not have the dress, only the lace. I wanted to place her at the top of my tree, so I made her the skirt and of course it needed to go with her PINK bows. It's been many years since she got the top spot. I'm feeling nostaligic this year, so she may grace the top of the tree once again.
There are no children here for Christmas anymore, unless you count our kitties and doggies or perhaps hubby....who loves Christmas as much as any kid....and yet our kids have left behind many precious memories for us to cherish.
Happy Pink Saturday to you!
