Pink Saturday


For lots of pinks. There is a whole world of bloggers
out there, and some amazing talent.

This is a piece of wood from my husband's parents old house.
After they passed from this life, it stood empty for several years.
When it was torn down, I saved some pieces of the wood,
and painted scenes on them for the family to keep.
They loved them.

There were many happy memories connected to that old house.
Every holiday their children, grandchildren and others would gather there,
there was always someone around the piano singing, kids playing..
Just good times.
I am glad we got to keep a few pieces..the memories are precious!

An old Tasters Choice coffee jar.
They don't make glass ones any more.

Seems life is just full of changes.

Happy Pink Saturday.
God loves you...
And so do I!
