Pink Saturday - July 21

Every wish you could have a new house?

I do.

My house is pink. But it is tiny.

It was built just after WWW II by a Polish immigrant.

Lots of character, but it is really a cottage.

I could use one this size!

Happy Pink Saturday!
Thank you to Beverly of How Sweet the Sound for hosting our weekly meetings.

Last 2 days!

The Duchess of Cambridge

The Duchess of Cambridge visited a viewing of Team GB and Paralympics GB athlete portraits on exhibition at London's National Portrait Gallery yesterday.

The Duchess is wearing a blue crepe dress by Stella McCartney. Stella has designed a range of clothing Olympic athletes will wear when competing, training and relaxing.

Oh, and the necklace?
By Cartier - featuring five diamond-studded hoops in a pave setting – suggestive of the Olympic symbol - hanging from a gold chain with a ring on each shoulder and another further down on each side.
Cartier calls this "Trinity Necklace".
You can have one too, it sells for £49,000- $77,479.10 Canadian or $76,569.11 US.
A St. James Palace spokesman for the Duchess says
"It's a personal piece which she's had for some time."

I'd like to see the rest of her collection.

Happy Birthday Canada!



O Canada! Our home and native land
True patriot love in all thy sons command.
With glowing hearts we see thee rise
The true north, strong and free
From far and wide, O Canada
We stand on guard for thee.
God keep our land glorious and free
O Canada! We stand on guard for thee
O Canada! We stand on guard for thee.

O Canada! Terre de nos aieux
Ton front est ceint de fleurons glorieux!
Car ton bras sait porter l'épée
Il sait porter la croix!
Ton histoire est une épopée
Des plus brilliants exploix.
Et ta valeur, de foi trempée
Protégera nos foyers et nos droits
Protégera nos foyers et nos droits.
