The saying "In the Pink" means in perfect condition, especially of health. Some of you may have noticed that on occasion I have mentioned, though briefly, that I've had some health challenges. I am happy to say that I am getting closer and closer to that state of being "in the pink"! Let's hear it for good health!
Pink is also one of my most very favorite colors. If I am forced to pick a favorite I will usually choose pink, but I love other colors, too!
It's girly ~ I'm girly. It's feminine ~ I'm feminine. It tends to work well with my skin tone. I could think of a million other reasons why I like pink and why it's a perfect color for me!
I'd like to show you some fabulous blogalicious, tattalicious, and pinkalicious goodies!
that arrived in the mail from
The box was a total surprise!
Look at the darling pink rose on the
pink background with white polka dots!
I am swooning over the pretty pink
and white stripes on the side of the box.
on the side of the box lid!
Let's peek inside, shall we?
sheer bag and rosy tissue paper?
Look at the inside of the box, too!
The shuttle was not!
We had made arrangements earlier for her to
paint her beautiful shabby chic roses on a
wooden tatting shuttle for me.
I sent her this tatting shuttle
(that I purchased from Sistermaide's Etsy Shop).
Oh, the photo does not do it justice!
It is beautiful with it's white background
and pink rosebud with pink polka dots!
Here's another "before" shot of the
tatting shuttle on it's side:
with white inside the blades of the shuttle!
Accompanying this lovely shuttle was
this pretty card:
It says, "The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched. They must be felt with the heart."
The flipside had a personal note on it:
I LOVE it!
Celeste is getting a tatted bookmark from me.
I told her I was going to wait until I had it done
to post it. As you can see, the shuttle is so
very pretty that I simply couldn't wait!

shuttle by clicking here!
Next, I'd like to show you that I got
some pink hand knitted house slippers
from Twyla of Two Crazy Crafters!
They are comfy, too!
You know, I have always wanted a pair of
hand knitted house slippers and now I have them!
Twyla had a birthday giveaway and I was
one of the lucky winners! YAY!
Thank you, Twyla!
They are warm and cozy!
Now, just in case you were wondering...
this is not just a blog about some gal
who "gets a lot of stuff from other bloggers"...
I do tat, too!
This is a sneak peak for all of you of some pink
tatting for a very special bloggy pal
(and you know who you are)!
