Pink Saturday - Gifts from Canada

Happy Pink Saturday! I received these cute gifts from my adorable friend Sandy from Sandy's Creations. If you read a few posts down she is the lovely blog friend who is now just "Friend", who came to NY at Thanksgiving from Canada. I had mentioned I love what I call "pot heads, vase heads...you know those half dolls with a vase in their head"; and she sent me a beautiful Pink one. She was wrapped in a pink wrap with snowmen on and made the cutes snowman clothes pin. She also sent a cute photo album with my "god dollies" and our adventures after Sandy adopted them in FAO Schwartz and during the Holidays in Canada. She also sent a great CD of all our pictures. I still have to get things together and send to Sandy and my god dollies. Blog friends are wonderful and enrich our lives. So go on over and visit Beverly from "How Sweet the Sound" our sweet Pink Saturday hostess and visit with other Pink Saturday posts and leave a comment and you will make wonderful friendships. xoxoxo

I'm glad you like your head vase~! I hope you are feeling a lot better now my friend! We are getting a lot of snow today. Oh I dreamt of you again last night! You and I were waiting for an elevator at Eloise's hotel and my ex boyfriend (from highschool) popped up and was asking a lot of personal questions-weird!

Hugs to you, Sandy

Happy Pink Saturday Grace Sweetie...
What a beautiful pink share. Yes our blogging buddies are just the BEST. We are blessed each day with writes of love and encouragement, but when we actually get to meet in person, and bond with a friendship, oh how priceless it truly is.

I love your vase head. She is exquisite and SO detailed. I have never seen one quite like her. I love her pins and all.

Snowman clothespin is precious as well. A really cute idea.

Have a gorgeous weekend. Happy Pink Saturday sweetie. Many hugs and much love, Sherry
