Pink Saturday - Christmas 2010

For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.





My favourite Christmas song-done by IL DIVO. For me, this is what Christmas is all about.



We'll be having a quiet day, enjoying each others company. I am so lucky, my husband does the turkey! So yummy!

Merry Christmas everyone.

Special thank you to Beverley from How Sweet the Sound for hosting our Pink Saturday meetings.

Pink Saturday - December 11

It's Pink Saturday!!!! Thank you to Beverly of How Sweet the Sound for hosting our Pink Saturday meetings.


Every year my husband asks for some gift suggestions. I've been most helpful this year by finding pictures of the actual items.


How about this fabulous jacket by Stella McCartney in our favourite pink colour? At only $2,245. I think it would be one of those pieces that could be worn for years.



I love watches. So this Fendi watch with the pink diamonds on the dial would get me where I'm going on time, don't you think?


So now I would need one of these baubles to set off my pink nail polish. Note to hubby: please don't pick the green one!


And because I've been especially good this year-this Louis Vuitton necklace with the white and pink diamonds. For pricing you have to call them! I'm sure they'll gift wrap for free.

So what is on your list?

While you are out bloghopping this weekend be sure to stop by and visit Sherry at Country Wings in Phoenix. Sherry always comes up with something wonderful to share. And then be sure to visit Anne at Phamilyblog. She has a new house she's decorating!!! How exciting is that?

Wishing you all a great weekend.

*Argentium Sterling Silver is sterling silver with less of the copper alloy. Copper is what makes sterling silver tarnish. Argentium is 92.5% pure silver with the balance a mix of germanium and copper. This makes Argentium silver harder, brighter and more highly tarnish resistant than traditional sterling silver.
