Thank you to Beverly at How Sweet the Sound for hosting this weekly gathering of all things Pink.



This week I am sharing things my grandmother made. She was a really crafty person.


She knitted and she sewed.


She crocheted


She embroidered


She tatted

Her youngest granddaughter likes doing all of of the above, but she likes making jewellery the best!

This week it is a sterling silver and rhodocrosite necklace.

Last week Tracey from Honeysuckle and Hissy Fits joined Pink Saturdays. Just love that name. I visited her again during the week and found out we are both Cavalier lovers. Welcome to the Pinkers Tracey!


My own little Lexie.

And a special thank you to my sister who directed me to a website with the information on how to make my pictures bigger. I'll share this info if anyone wants to know.

Have a great week. I hope to visit with you all again next Saturday.

  9. What a talented lady your grandmother was! Her work is beautiful. And how wonderful that that talent gene was passed on down to you. And that little Lexi? Too cute for words! I thought she was a toy at first. I enjoyed your whole Pink Saturday post so much.
