Happy 3rd Birthday Pink Saturday!

Happy 3rd Birthday Pink Saturday!  I started participating in Pink Saturday last September.  I knew this would be a great event for me since I am surrounded by pink!  My husband commented when I told him I was going to participate...Wow you'll never run out of things to post! lol  Yep and I'm proud of it!  :)  I would like to thank Beverly our gracious host for creating this very fun event for all of us pink lovers!  

Last August 3rd we celebrated our Miss Sophie's 15th birthday.  Of course she had pink bows and a yummy cake decorated with pink roses!

These were flowers from Mike for my 60th birthday last October 28.

My little very girlie granddaughter Gracie who happens to be a lover of pink like her Gramma!  

A delicious cup of champagne raspberry tea and homemade Baklava!

My pretty pink guest room!

Some pink pretties in my master bathroom!
What's prettier than pink and candlelight?
A pretty pink silk wedding bouquet!
Pretty pinks with a touch of yellow!
My pretty pink giveaway from last year!
Some of my pretty pink faux desserts!
Pretty pink bottle by Cindy Ellis!
Some of my living room pink pretties!
Last but not least my VERY first tea cup given to me by my Auntie Kay many years ago for my birthday.  She couldn't have picked a prettier one!   

Hopefully I didn't overwhelm you with too many pink pretties!  Honest I have a lot more!  Thank you again to Beverly at How Sweet The Sound for our very fun event every week!  

A special note from a very proud Gramma:

As a lot of you know my granddaughters are very active in sports and I spend a lot of my time at the ball fields.  My twin granddaughter's softball team which happens to be coached by their Daddy (my oldest son Brian) played a very important game last night.  Their team has been in first place the whole season.  Last week we lost our first game which changed the standings all of a sudden.  There was a threat of us not taking first place unless we won last night.  How sad to be in first place the entire season and if we lost it would put us in fourth! Yikes!  Well, you know none of us wanted that to happen!  We started the game off with a very bad inning!  My granddaughter Maddie was pitching and my other granddaughter Lily was catching!  They are known as the dynamic duo.  Maddie struggled in the first inning and walked in two runs.  :(  The game was 2-0 which seemed like forever!  The pitcher on the other team was having a great night.  Maddie got warmed up after that bad first inning and kept them to the 2 runs.  But still this game was looking quite grim until Maddie got up with 2 outs with no one on base...she hit a home run!  Wow!  With two outs the girls all started hitting and my son was sending them running around the bases which totally rattled the other team and we won 3-2!  It brought everyone to their feet!  Like my son told them after the game...NEVER give up!  Brittany the pitcher from the other team sent a text to my son last night congratulating the girls on their victory.  She is 10 yrs. old!  If only adults behaved that way!  

Congratulations Roseville Giants you made us proud!

Happy Pink Saturday!

Happy Pink Saturday everyone!  Can't believe how fast the week goes.  I've been busy making new pictures frames to put in my Etsy shop.  Now I just need to sell them! :)  

Some of my pink treasures!
Some of my pretty perfume bottles!
Sophie wanted to share some of her pinks bows with you and she wanted you to see she is not always napping!

A pretty tea cup that belonged to my mother!
I bought these at the Empress Hotel in Victoria!

Last Friday when I did my pink Saturday post I mentioned what great weather we were having.  Well, I spoke too soon because it took a turn for the worse!  It was a beautiful 81 degrees on Friday and by Sunday we had thunder, lightning and hail storms! Very unusual for May in California.  My poor roses! :(  This is what it looked like on Sunday.  Mother Nature has not been very kind lately!

Have a great weekend everyone.  Make sure you visit Beverly at How Sweet The Sound to see all the other lovely posts.  Next week we will celebrating Pink Saturday's 3rd Birthday!  Please join us.

My New Etsy Shop

Good Morning and Happy Monday everyone!  Hope you all had a great weekend.  

A few weeks ago I decided to open an Etsy shop.  I have been a buyer for quite sometime but thought I might try selling on there too.  I had to close my existing account in order to change my user name from Denise1153 (which is okay for buying but not too cute for selling) to All Over Roses.  It's always kind of weird starting over with no feedback but I figured it was worth it to be able to change my name.  

I haven't actually sold anything yet but it has been fun doing the listings! :)  I figured out how to put it on my side bar so you can see what I have in my shop.  

Here's a peek at some of the things I have listed...

Thanks for stopping by...have a good day everyone!

Happy Pink Saturday!

I hope everyone is finally having some good weather.  It was beautiful here today...not too hot not too cold!  Wish it was like this all year round!  I worked out in my front and back yard today.  I should have been out driving with the top down instead but at $4.33 per gallon I have to have a good reason to go out! lol  Tuesday was Miss Sophie's grooming day so of course we have to share her new pink bows.  Naturally she is napping but this time I managed to get part of her face!

Mommy's angel!

I found these darling ranunculus bunches to put in my new Christie Repasy jars the other day when I went to downtown Folsom.
I know the jars say roses and I used ranunculus but they were too cute to pass up!

A few other goodies I found when I went to Folsom.
This candle smells just like chocolate!  YUM!  Of course I'm never going to burn it! :)

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend.  I'll be at the ball field. :)  My granddaughter Lily hit a grand slam last weekend.  It's not her first but still just as exciting!  Beside the grand slam she made some amazing plays as catcher and 3rd. base.  She was awarded the game ball which was well deserved.  Maddie pitched an amazing game which kept us in first place!  I'm so very proud of them...they are such good girls!  

Maddie & Lily

Happy Pink Saturday everyone.  Make sure you visit Beverly our sweet hostess at How Sweet The Sound to see all the other wonderful pink posts!
