Pink Saturday

Hello, Most Dear Pink Ones and welcome to Pink Saturday hosted by our own Most Wonderful Pink Beverly at How Sweet the Sound.

I'd like to share with you these little sweet pink baby booties made by my 87 year old mother for our little grand baby girl, Carter Ashlan.

Pinkness of felt made into sweet little pink baby booties by loving great grandmother's hands.

Teenyness of embroidered flowers

They look a little like little baby Indian moccasins, don't they?

I'm afraid darling little Carter Ashlan has already outgrown these little booties. She's growing really fast and her tinyness of tootsies have grown too! :)

Then...pinkness of checks on this little precious baby head lidded box. Is she darling or what?

Look at that little face, those little ruby lips, those most gorgeous of blue peepers and that little baby profile. My Dear Mother gave me this little box years ago and every single time I look at her - I just smile out loud! Can you smile out loud? I'll bet you can! :)

When I think of Pink, I think of little baby girls, and that of course makes me think of our darling little Pink Carter Ashlan. If you don't know, I'm a new grandmother and I'm in Pink Heaven.

This is the Most Precious for my Pink Saturday, don't you think?

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you a little Note Song~

Color My World

As time goes on, I realize
Just what you mean to me. And now, now that you're near, Promise your love that I've waited to share And dreams of our moments together. Color my world with hopes of loving you

  1. She is a darlin alright, Sheila! Precious little pinkie! Love the booties too. Happy Pinks and have a wonderful weekend.


  2. Oh, what treasures you have there... Your mother, the darling shoes and especially Carter Ashlan.

    The booties will be so special to Miss Carther Ashlan as she gets older, knowing the love that went into creating them.

    You sure are blessed to have a grand daughter to go pink-crazy over. She is a doll, what an angelface.

    Happy Pink Saturday.

  3. She is sooooo sweet and adorable, new grammy. ;-) Maybe this time next week we'll have Miss "A" with us. Squeeeeeal, I can hardly wait for our first great granddaughter to make her presence to us.


  4. What a sweetie. Love your pinks. You are surely a blessed grandma. And hey, I remember that song, we sung it in Jr High Choir. Happy Pink Saturday.
