Pink Angel



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!

  8. Love the angel. What precious memories for you! We no longer have kiddies at home for Christmas either. This will be the third year. The first year I was so down, I never got a tree. And only a few things went up. Last year we got a small tree. This year I will do a little more I guess. Thanks for visiting me. Happy Pink Saturday!

  16. So so pretty Stephanie.
    Isn't it weird to not have little ones around anymore?
    It does change the mood a little, but we still love it and mine is all pink this year.

  17. Oh Stephanie,
    Your post touched a very tender spot for me. A sweet story of a special mother child relationship.

  20. She's so pretty!! I know what you mean about our kids buying something for us. It always brings a tear to my eye when one of my boys calls on the phone to tell me about something and they said it reminded them of me or they buy something for me just for the pure pleasure of it. sniff..sniff. Happy Belated Pink Saturday. ~ Lynn

  22. What a lovely story!!! Yes, I know about no children being around any more, too, but every so often my little grand girl is here and the place just springs to life! My fur bundles are my daily babes, too, and they do bring so much joy to my life (usually!)
    Hope your PSat was great! Dana
