PINK Saturday and Children

Its Pink Saturday again hosted by Beverly at HowSweetTheSound.  If you haven’t yet visited all the Pink Saturday blogs be sure to click on Beverley’s site to see where to find them.  Everyone you visit will love to receive a comment from you so they know you’ve been there.

Years ago my youngest son painted this Easter Egg by waxing down some thread and painting in between.  The egg has travelled with me for years and has become more and more precious to me.   I can’t recall when he painted it but it must have been about 18 years ago.   If you shake it you can hear the “egg” rolling around.  Recently while thrifting I came across this AVON bunny egg cup with its PINK flowers and the bunny’s PINK ears and nose.  It is dated 1981.  My son was born in 1981 also so it only seemed appropriate the egg cup and egg were meant to be together.  This was another bunny to add to my collection.

This is my eldest son with his 4 year old daughter Madeline.  She’s wearing a PINK sweater which in the picture looks more salmony and PINK barrettes in her hair.  You can tell she loves her daddy.   His job has him working different schedules and she’ll ask him if he will be there in the morning when she wakes up.  She knows if he will be then he’s not on day shift and they’ll have sweet times together that day and her big, blue eyes will dance with excitement. 

Thank you for stopping by for my Pink Saturday and stories.  Be sure to check out the other Pink Saturday sites. 

Have a lovely day.   Judi

  30. Judy,
    Isn’t is just amazing how our kids’ artwork is just so precious? I think the egg holder is so appropriate and want to know something? I have the matching trinket box. My Godmother gave it to me while I was in jr. high.
    In one of my Autumn posts I have a pumpkin that my eldest girl made for me when she was in the 4th grade…she’s now in her last year pre-med. sigh* Where does the time go?
    Anyway, I’m just out here checking out all the pink. There was a lot this week! I hope you are enjoying your weekend. Thanks for sharing!
