Happy Pink Saturday


Beverly of How Sweet the Sound has selected the theme for this week's Pink Saturday - "Favorite Holiday Decoration". This little angel was on the top of my very first "family" Christmas tree in 1970. I believe I purchased her at Revco Drug Store. When new she had lights attached. Over the years the lights quit working. I took them off but saved the angel. As I was looking through my decorations, I realized that she is one of the oldest family ornaments in my collection. She will be passed on to my son at some time in the future.

To see more Favorite Holiday Decorations check Beverly's blog. Merry Christmas and thanks for visiting my blog on Pink Saturday.

That's adorable! I remember when we were having our first family Christmases how tight with money things were, and that made the things we did choose to buy very precious indeed. And now it's all the more so because she's been with you over the years.

Happy Pink Saturday!!

Hi!
I found your blog by searching for a crayon holder! We are adopting a little boy from China but need to raise enough to bring our two adopted daughters...I would love your instructions for the Krayon Keeper to make for friends who have asked. They are paying me to make presents to help us fund our trip. And any other crafty things I can sell to bring our boy home!
thanks!

Sorry I'm so late. I witnessed the passing of the Olympic Torch today. My 3rd cousin was running with it. Such an emotional day. Took tons of pictures. It was a clear blue sunny day. I met family that I didn't even know existed, The torch is on it's ways to B.C. Canada as you might know. i live in Ottawa, Ontario, long way to go if you know where that is loll
I have a angel just like yours but with a white dress.
Happy PS
Love Claudie
