Sweet Sewing, and Oh So Sweet Dancer

These are aging snowball blossoms.
See how they are turning just the palest pink ever?

Sweet old plastic sewing box.
It swivels.

And, hard to see I know,
but inside the bottom part it holds spools.

Not good color on this pic, and could not get it to turn upright,
but wanted you to see the old pin cushion in the lid.


Our sweet Ava, (in the middle) at her first recital.
Between the Ava and her sister, they were in 5 dances!
Sorry. Pics of here sister did not turn out) =(

Ava again, on left.

Sweet Ava, and grandpa.

I'm linking up to Pink Saturday.
If you love pinkness of any kind,
it is the place to be on Saturday.

Hey Barbara Jean,
Did anyone ever tell you that Grandpa looks like Hugh Hefner! LOL

Little Ava is such a doll.

I have never thought about drying snowballs but I will now. I love that tinge of pink!

This is sweet - going to a granddaughter's recital! Precious!

I'm so glad you had a day at the water! You've been working so hard. You deserved the treat!

Happy Weekend!

Now, Ava is the cutest pink! What a little doll! :-)

Barbara Jean, at first I thought that sewing box was a cake. That means one of two things. 1) I need to have my glasses checked or 2) I need to go find some cake! I choose option number two! ;-)

Happy Pink Saturday!

I loved the sewing box...and your sweet grndaughter is just gorgeous. I've been scrolling through and reading..I think your blog just gets better and better..and back when you were asking for help in the decision for a button for your blog..I think the baby shoe with your tea roses in it would be a wonderful button for your site. It's just beautiful. You are so talented..I love visiting and seeing what you're doing next. Happy Pinks, and have a lovely weekend.


Sweet pics of Ava and her Papa! The sewing basket is cool. Love the pincushion on it.
Happy weekend!
Deb :)

You had me at "it swivels"!

Love the dance pictures, reminds me of a picture from my daughters first recital, 4 or 5 years old. Each of the 5 or so little girls in the picture were captured in a different pose, when they were all supposed to be the same! Too funny. Glad to see your little girls were much more together.
