Pink Valentine Saturday - February 13

It is another Pink Saturday and it is Valentine's Weekend. Our gracious hostess Beverly from How Sweet the Sound is having some health problems. I wish you a very speedy recovery, Beverly.

Last week I visited every blog listed on the Pink Saturday participant list (ok, I was spamming everyone so you would remember about my giveaway!) and I have to say, there are some really wonderful blogs out there in blogland. You must take some time and visit all our "Pinkin" Sisters.

Beverly asked for a Pink Valentine Saturday. So I have a love story.

My husband

decided that my 22nd birthday would be the day he proposed to me

I worked in a jewellery store and he would pick me up every night after work. I had no idea that he was busy designing a ring with my boss. I thought they were just visiting. A sketch was made, stones were chosen and his plan was made. But sometimes stuff happens. My birthday came but the ring wasn't ready. So my ever resourceful guy hit the antique shop and found this

He knew I would love it because it is old

and it is pink

And the ring? I received it the next day. To see it visit me for Silver Sunday tomorrow.

Time to announce the winner of the Gracie Jewellery Giveaway

Everyone who entered had their name put into my favourite pink bowl

After mixing them up, a name was pulled. And the winner is ......(drumroll please)

Shabby Cottage Collectibles

  18. 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☺

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

    ♫Happy Valentine's Day♫
