Pink Saturday - Tussie Mussie - Cone Swap

Happy Pink Saturday and Happy April! I am so ready for the beautiful Spring weather but have had no luck yet. I had to share this fun swap hosted by Jennifer Babcock from Covered in Glitter. It was actually quite funny my swap partner was my awesomest friend Cheryl from Nouveaux Portmanteau. We signed up last and so wound up with each other and last week when I visited we swapped! Cheryl is one of my greatest friends. She is so giving so attentive to every detail and just so talented and crafty. Look at Marie and the birdie and the gorgeous tulle topper she made. The pictures just do not "honor" it as it deserves. I just posted the Tussie Mussie / Cones and next week will post "ALL" the fabulous goodies she made and gave me...(sneak a pink table)! Get out I I am truly blessed and lucky!
Please visit Beverly from How Sweet the Sound our lovely Pink Saturday Hostess and read some fabulous Pink blog posts. They are all amazing Pink Saturday FRIENDS! xoox

Oh Grace Sweetie...
How beautiful are these 2 tussies, and how wonderful to be matched up with you friend. They are both so elegant. I love the cream crocheted covering you added to the one you made, and are those precious little buttons down the front? So beautiful. Love the tulle on the one you received and of course who doesn't love Marie? Just perfect sweetie.

A beautiful Pink Saturday share. Thank you for showing them both. Love them. Hope you are having a beautiful day sweet friend.

Many hugs and much love, Sherry
