Pink Saturday Hair...and a Thank You!

Last week, while I was walking along the new High Line park, high above the streets of the Chelsea neighborhood in Manhattan, I was attracted to the very pink hair of this young lady who was walking in front of me.


Of course my first thought when I saw her was of Beverly's blog How Sweet The Sound Pink Saturday event. She was perfect!
Go to Beverly's blog today to see links to many more participating blogs and their wonderful pink discoveries. Also, please come back to my blog in a few days when I'll be showing more of the High Line walkways and gardens on my blog. It is a very unique new park, and has become a very popular attraction in New York City since it opened this summer.

Beverly also asks us to introduce a new blog we discovered each week during our Pink Saturday visits, and I'd like to recommend Susie Jefferson of 1st Floor Flat. She composed the Html code for the cute little Pink Saturday blinkie you see below. Susie, who lives in London, England, is a wonderful mixed media artist, designer of rubber art stamps and jewelry, and is also a book binder. Susie has a Pink Saturday post up today with scans of pages from a very fascinating antique cookery book. Please make sure to pay her a visit!

I'd also like to say a special "Thank You!" to Jeanne of the Backyard Neighbor blog. I won a wonderful give-away that she recently had on her blog. The package arrived today and as I opened it I found this beautiful vintage picnic hamper inside. It was so heavy! What else could be inside it?

I opened the lid to find it full of an array of wonderful gifts!

There were two wonderful cook books, a set of four matching napkins, place mats and napkin rings, blue kitchen towels, coasters, a fabric wine carrier bag, four white plastic dishes and matching sets of white handled silverware, two bags of vanilla potpourri, a package of Halloween napkins, and a cute Halloween candle holder!


Jeanne, you were so generous! It felt like Christmas as I opened this wonderful gift! I will truly enjoy using this basket to carry our picnic equipment in the future. I am also enjoying all the little gifts that were included inside. I already saw a few recipes I'd like to try right away! Thank you again, it has always been a pleasure to visit your cheerful and interesting blog.

Jeanne has a wonderful Pink Saturday post today about an amazing collection of antique buttons! Please make sure to visit her always delightful blog and say hello.

What a great giveaway you won! Perfect for you as I know how much you love to cook.

Can't wait to learn more about that new area/park. Since I'm coming back to NY in the spring I'm writting down different things on your blog so I can be sure to check them out.

I may have to rent you out as my tour guide when I come! LOL

Hugs,

I saw the High Line park mentioned on another blog recently. I can't wait to read your assessment of it. The walkway looked so crowded in your picture, I wondered how much walking you have done.

Now I've seen it all. I've heard of a bad hair day, but never a pink hair day. What a hoot. It would have been my luck not to have my camera with me to catch this moment.

I just dropped by from Bev's to wish you a Happy Pink Saturday.

Happy Pink Saturday, Pat. And, thank you for introducing everyone to Susie. She is so talented.

The pink hair gave me a big smile. I just let my gray grow out. Maybe I should have gone pink. Ha!

The air is cooler, the days are shorter, winter is on its way. From now until April of next year I will have to rely on Pink Saturday for my pink fix!

Thanks for participating this week and for helping my day be just a little bit more pink and sweet!

Wishing you a wonderful weekend filled with the love of family and good friends.

Just a little something from Judy said...

Well, you brought me a smile as I was reading your post. The pink hair did it for me. Only you could capture pink hair on a "pink Saturday".

What a generous, thoughtful gift you received. I am sure it did feel like Christmas for you.

Thank you for all the blogging sites info that you provided for us. I continually learn much from my visits here.
