Pink Saturday ~ Apron Winner!

Happy Pink Saturday and Happy Valentine's Day Eve~Eve! My favorite day is almost here! Valentine's Day has always been my very favorite day of the year. I'm not sure why. My DD, Heather, speculates that it's because it is all about pink and red. Could be...could be....I've always been a pink and red kind of girl. Most of my red went to Indiana with Heather, leaving me with only the pink. She decorated her kitchen with all of the familiar reds from home. That way when she walked into her apartment after a day at a new school in a far-from-Alabama state, it was really like coming home.

Well, on with the Valentine eye candy...

"Made-by-Sherry" Valentine garland. I haven't hung it up this year. I've just carried it all over the house, leaving it here and there....that way I can enjoy it where ever I happen to be at the time.

My favorite bookmark from my local library. I love my library and my bookmobile!

"Made-by-Sherry" paper globe using instructions from Heather Bailey's blog.

I made the paper globe's little dangling heart by sticking two identical stickers together.

My favorite necklace. The little swirls around the center heart look like S's to me. "S" for Sherry! I think it was just made for me!

And last but not least...A Happy Valentine...
Uh oh, who's that peeking over A Happy Valentine's head? Oh, it's Lulu.
She wanted to draw the winner for the apron giveaway. But I decided to give that
honor to DS #2. BTW, DS #2 didn't appreciate being called by initials and a
number, so I asked him what he wanted me to call him on my blog and he said, "How
about my name?" So, without further ado... is Taylor, drawing the winning name for the Apron Giveaway! And the winner is.......

Shellymckinstry !!!!

  8. You chose some really beautiful items for your Pink Saturday post!Congrats to Shelley!

  9. So sorry that I missed you yesterday. It seemed like the day just ran away from me! But, with this being ♥Valentine's Day♥ what better time for me to stop by to see your Pink Saturday goodies.

    It's been a long and dark winter up here near Canada so filling myself up with pink is my way on the weekend of chasing away the blues - not that blue isn't a nice color, too☺

    I ♥ coming here. All the pink and all the girlie stuff just floods my brain and makes me want to do a happy dance right where I sit!

    Thanks so much for sharing. After all, isn't sharing one of life's greatest pleasures?

    ♫Happy Valentine's Day♫

  10. Congratulations to Shelly for the win.
    I have to say I love your header, just to cute. I refer to my grandsons in the same way, since I have 5, lol.
    Happy Valentines Day
    Happy Pink Saturday
