Pink Saturday

Hello, Dear Ones and welcome to another Pink Saturday hosted by our Most Pink Dear Beverly at How Sweet the Sound. Please pop over to see her and you'll get to visit so many wonderful Pink Posts! :)

Did you ever have a paint by numbers kit? Well, I went through a stage when I was a young thing and loved these little kits filled with spaces and numbers just waiting for my most dainty fingers to pick up the paint brush and then to open up one of those little plastic lids on the paint pots with a kaleidoscope of rainbow colors and start painting in the spaces! I can still smell the oil paints! While cleaning out closets a few months ago I found one of my paint by numbers artwork. I was about 11 or 12 when I painted this...

A big eyed Margaret Keane paint by numbers! Do you remember these big eyed children? This little ballerina in pink is one of a pair. I have no idea what happened to the other one and I'm amazed that I still had this one.

Is she mad or is she sad? Is she shy or is she being defiant?

Her long locks are pulled up high upon her little head and tied with a Pink bow!
Her hair looks a bit messy so maybe she's just finished dancing in a ballet.
Now does she have that look because she's danced her tiny toes off or maybe she's been messing with her hair because she wasn't allowed to dance?

Are her very huge brown eyes about to fill with tears from sadness
are those big ole eyes glaring and sending out those 'if looks could kill' stares?

Is this what you call pouty lips to warn us that her little chin is about to start quivering
are these little lips locked shut so tightly because she could bite through bullets she's so mad?

Look at those little arms crossed tightly across her chest.
Now does this means she's just feeling uncomforable
she's guarding her tiny feelings because she's been naughty?

I guess we'll never know. But she's so cute
has the biggest ole eyes
the most important thing -
she's Pink! :)

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song~

Ballerina Girl

Ballerina Girl
You are so lovely
With you standing there
I'm so aware
Of how much I care for you

You are more than now
You are for always
I can see in you
My dreams come true
Don't you ever go away

You make me feel like
There's nothing I can't do
And when I hold you
I only want to say
I love you

Ballerina Girl
The joy you bring me
Every day and night
Holding you tight
How I've waited for your love

Sometimes I've wondered
If you'd ever come my way
Now that I've finally found you
This is where my heart will stay

I'm never gonna break your heart
Never will we drift apart
'Cause all I wanna do
Is share my whole life with you

'Cause you make me feel like
There's nothing I can't do
I guess I finally realized
There's nothing else like loving you

Ballerina Girl
You are so lovely
I can see in you
My dreams come true
Don't you ever go away
Ballerina Girl...
