HAPPY PINK SATURDAY! ANYTHING YOU CAN DO I CAN DO BETTER

Happy Pink Saturday everyone!

Thank you so much to our fabulous Beverly of How Sweet the Sound for hosting!

If you haven't already, be sure to pop over to Beverly's blog, say hello, and see all the pinks other bloggers have posted.

I'm sure that some of you may have noticed the straw hat I made in the right margin photos. I was babysitting my adorable little nice one day and she asked me if I could make her one just like it.

I thought it would be a better idea if she made one for herself; with Auntie's help of course. She picked out the faux flowers, the ribbon, the pretty sparkly butterfly, and design it herself (I glued them on)l

Her inspiration, my straw hat...

Her design....

She didn't want to wait for me to buy a plain straw hat that was more her size. She said..."I'm still growing!" Good point. lol! Her butterfly focal.....

"Take my picture and be sure you get the flower in my hand...."

She insisted that she must hold one of the flowers in her hand so she will match her pretty straw hat. Now a pretty pose....

These were taken last winter. Her straw hat is hanging on her bedroom wall. No one is allowed to touch it. lol.

Thank you for visiting me! I will be surfin about viewing the other lovely pink post!

Back to Beverly's Pink Saturday!

Enjoy your weekend!

Happy Pink Saturday, Tina! Your straw hat is wonderful! I did a hat many years ago; one for me and one for my mother. I did peach though. I should change it out to pink since I'm more into pink these dys. Have a wonderful weekend.

Cute, cute cute! I know you had a great time making this sweet hat for your pretty little niece. You made great memories for the two of you that day as well. I don't think I have much pink. I need to look around so I can participate in the event.

Omigosh she is too cute...and kids seem to be getting smarter and smarter earlier and earlier, don't you think? Charming.

caren said...

Tina ~ this is adorable! And I love the Hello Kitty dress - it reminds me of my daughter back in the day! Thanks for visiting me. Happy PS!

Dawn said...

What a little cutie! and the hats are beautiful too! Happy PS!

Charlotte said...

What a delightful pink post. Great idea letting her make her own hat. Too many times I think we do too much for children because we can do it better. It robs them of learning to be creative and a great sense of accomplishment. The pictures are darling.
Happy Pink Saturday.
Charlotte

That shabby Pink Girl said...

Hi Tina
There is nothing more wonderful than seeing a happy face of a child when they are learning a craft, no matter what it is, for my boys, it was building a fort with Dads help, or painting a picture with my help, I did the same thing with my Courtney you did with your neice, and she also picked Daisy's~~I've found out things about girl's, they like Daisies, purple and Horses :-) and Pink! Your niece is adorable.
Have a happy Day

Update on Amy! The doctors came in, they talked to Amy and were finally able to get the IV started. Ladies we start praying, it will be 2 more hours now, Amy is back in the procedure room. The Dr.s like to use the artery on the right side of the groin, but Amy had cancer there at the age of 10 and there is scar tissue there, so it may not be possible on the right side and they may have to go to the left. Debbie said that Amy was hesterical this morning, but after talking to the Dr. she had calmed down. The Dr. said they will occlude the corotid artery for 30 minutes, if she shows no sign of a stroke then she will be scheduled for surgery, if at any time in those 30 minutes if she shows a sign of stroke, then the surgery will not be possible. We have jumped the first hurdle with prayer, we move on to the second. Thank you so much for loving our family, Sherry

Rebecca said...
