Pink Fun & Funny Christmas Story

Welcome to Pink Saturday. Thanks for stopping by! Beverly is the most wonderful hostess, be sure to visit here @How sweet the sound.

Today I am showing an accumulation of last years pink posts. I love pink projects, and an excuse to make something with pink in it!




Here is a little pink planner I made just using cards , ribbon, flowers, etc. Basically I kept it in my purse to write little notes in.






A little pink cone with a sweet bird's nest perched on top.....looks like a little snow visited the nest.



I MADE THIS MILLION DOLLAR GIFT CARD FOR A BIT OF WHIMSY FOR MY KIDS...THEY GOT A KICK OUT OF IT. SO DID THEIR DAD! HAHAHA



I ADDED SNOW INSIDE A GLASS JAR...ADDED A PINK FELT SANTA HAT ALONG WITH FUR AND A GIFT TAG. VERY EASY GIFT CARD HOLDER.




*My favorite memory is my mother telling us the story how she thought her brothers killed Santa. She had 9 brothers and sisters and one Christmas in their farmhouse they heard noise up on the roof (like a sleigh landing!) bells ringing, hoofs stomping. So her older brothers ran outside and jumped on the roof and yelled "Hey get out of here"....and then they shot a shot gun.... My mom said they were crying and very upset until the brothers said that Santa got away and had left all these presents. Ha....she said when she got older she let them have it for upsetting her sooooo much! But I loved that story. My mom is now 82 and we still Christmas shop together!

Thank you for coming by and visiting.

Blessings,

Debbie

Your pink things are so pretty and I loved your mom's Christmas story. I have 4 boys and it just sounds like something boys would do. My girls would let them have it too. Thanks for sharing.

Oh, my. I love the pinks you've shared with us this year. Those brothers should be ashamed of themselves, but they did provide a funny Christmas memory. Thanks for sharing it with us. Have a wonderful day.

Bless her heart. Those boys thought they were so funny, didn't they. I am so glad Santa was safe. ;-)
