Oh the fun side of Pink!

 Welcome to everyone coming by via Beverly's blog for Pink Saturday!  When I look back over  my posts I realize I 
have been joining in now for 3 years on April 24th! 

 I first met Beverly because I visited her blog and found she was a delightful neighbor~blogger!  When you blog and visit that's what it feels like...that you are neighbors....coming by for your weekly sometimes daily visit!
 One thing Beverly is gifted at...she always makes bloggers feel comfortable and welcome at her blog. You never feel intimidated...but happy to be there.  Blogging should always be fun...and focus on what you enjoy and love to do.  I decided a long time ago I would blog about life...love....decorating...and farm animals! hahaha...we do live on a farm!  And oh the stories I could tell you...hmmm....another post perhaps!
 Just think what our lives were like before all this sweet
Pinkness....I can't remember that!  hahaha..
 This is my porch last spring...it is wet and cold still here...pout....
Love to eat outside in the springtime! When it is not raining!
 Ok so it was raining and we moved inside to the dining room!
 I love decorating and baking for pink Saturdays...I always indulge myself with a cupcake after the pictures are taken....big smile.

Pink dishes, pink tablerunners, pink rick rack... 

I also love tablerunners...they change the whole look of a dining room. 
"The Lord will bless you in your harvest...and in all the work of your hands, and your JOY will be complete."  Deuteronomy 16:15

Happy Pink Saturday! I shut down (deleted) blogging but came back. I know I used to frequent your site at least through Pink Saturday, but also otherwise, I'm fairly certain. Nice to see you again! I enjoyed what you wrote about blogging in general. Encouraging reminder, especially since I left and came back to blogging. Balance. Balance. Neat pinks. Awesome verse. Thanks and blessings to you, Jenn

What lovely photos! And aren't those lovely pink plates in your delightful floral dinnerware! Perfect for a boomer or senior who loves gardening! I'll have to tell my senior mom!

Loved your cute pix of the chickies as well. Definitely a delightful visit for pink Saturday. Thank you :)

Hi Debbie, I am Lynn and its nice to meet you. Love all your pinks but the rose dishes really caught my heart. Such pretty tablescape. Also love the little bird on the first picture Bev posted on her blog. Now I must read your next post about baby chicks coming from the Post office! Yikes. Happy PS.

You're such a talented decorator, and you have the ability to make us all feel like we're your neighbors. Everything is so welcoming Debbie!
I'd love to sit on that porch.

Hi Debbie! Thanks for the tour of your beautiful home. Your dining room looks so pretty all decked out and ready for Easter. Your porch and outdoor settings are so loveleigh and cozy too! I know what you mean about it being cold and wet still. It's like that here still. Happy Pink and have a wonderful weekend!
