It's Kitchens PINK Saturday!

Dear fellow bloggers of PINK! I am having such a delightful time decorating my home in ACCENTS of PINK! I recenlty moved as a result of being victimized through domestic violence. It was hard to move again, BUT easy to fall in love with all my things coming out of storage and new thrifted items being added!

Please sign my petition to create legislative changes for victims of domestic violence here.http://www.change.org/petitions/domestic-violence-victim-seeking-justice

Today I share some of my Kitchen Pinks with you.

I fell in love with this adorable vintage Teddy Bear that is musical and moves to the tune of "Please Bring Us Some Figgy Pudding"... and the angel pig and her pal molly cow atop a dainty crochet doiley and pink tablecloth. Notice even the countertops are PINK in this home!

This is the view out of my kitchen window into the back yard. The dainty PINK and teal hummingbirds hover over little stained glass window charmers and suncatchers. A little dark, no flash,but I will try to update...

This cute little teddy bear in PINK is on her way to market!

The oversized Pink Tulip dish serves as a pedestal for the phot shoot, atop a bold gingham Pink and White linen tablecloth, and the hand woven PINK placemats add a finishing touch to my table settings!

I will definitely have to find the cord to my digital camera, this sweet PINK bouquet of flowers was found several weeks ago at a SPCA thrift and goodwill store. Simply elegant on the windowsill!

These are a set of the daintiest little heart candles I bought in February at a truckstop on my way down to Camp Lejune to receive my son upon his return arrival from deployment to Afghanistan.

Love the Ivory vine and PINK roses thatadorn these candlesticks and just had to have them.

Another view of my Pink Kitchen Teddy Bear and counter tops.

Got this little vase with flowering hearts on Friday for $ .25 and the flowers were only 10 cents.

A sweet little PINK Mother's mug...

And this prickly but PINK cactus was perfect to hold it for me!

Sweet little hermitage schoolgirl all dressed up in Pinks and burgundy for her first day of school and just have to love those braids, they reminded me of my own long and thick plaits I wore forever!

Just had to show you her butterfly wings!

My trio of hearts, all thrifted. The clock $2 the rolling pin holder and rolling pin $2, the heart pie plate, $3, the heart vine wreath $2.50, frugal and beautifully PINKED!

Keep trying to straighten the huge wreath but it has a mind of its own...

And of course me as your host on this blog all ready to go out and celebrate my birthday albeit belated. Found this 2 piece vintage PINK lacey number at the SPCA for only $5, BUT I felt like a million dollars. The earrings my sis bought for me ata barn sale we went to 2 weeks ago, and that exquisite pair of dainty sequin PINKs matched the dress delightfully. The necklace was an extravagance a year ago that I bought to turn the little black dress into a knockout with this adorning my neck. Two of my favorites here, PINKS and Hearts!

And here is something I baked and created in celebration of my new little home.... double chocolate fudge cake and Dutch chocolate almond buttercream frostening and PINKED with butterflies!

How Sweet the Sound, let her know Valrie sent you!

Had my xrays and films come back with not so good reports but al least the doctorswere enlightened to the level, degree, and extent of my injuris, and pain. My entire spine is virtutally a train wreck. Started physical therapy this week and will be in that for quite some while...

Found an attorney to represent me for a civil suit against the man who has inflicted grave and permanent injurie to me and my spinal colum.  Have encountered a plethor of resources to help me start all over again. Healing slowly but in both body and soul and mind or spirit.

Make your day BLESSED by GOD with plenty of PINKS!!!

                                     Please leave a comment they complete my day!

 It's 2AM and time to put down the coffee and go to bed! See you while I surf in the morning!
