Pink Saturday.


Today this post is a  ” Thank You”  post. A thank you to three different blogging friends who sent me presents and all in this Valentine week. I won two beautiful give-aways, wow,   and let me  tell you, I never won anything  in my life before.
So here I have some beautiful virtual pink roses for the ladies. In Holland we always give flowers to say thank you.
You know by now that I love making collages so I made one with these  photo’s.

And now see what I won. Maggie from that beautiful blog “Normandy Life” sent me the book of my all time favorite TV series “Downton Abbey” .  And it is  beautiful. It is full of photo’s and stories of all the people that play in it. There is so much to read and to see in it, wonderful.
Maggie is an English lady who lives in Normandy, France, in a beautiful old house. Go visit her blog http://normandylife.blogspot.com/  and see for yourself.

These ladies are my favorites.

My second gift was from Rocky from “The Rocky mountain woman” . I only know her for a very short time .She has a lovely blog and tells beautiful stories. Here is the link to her blog  http://www.therockymountainwoman.com/
And this was her gift. A great  hoodie. I love it because it is nice and warm and it will be nice to wear when we go camping.

The color is black actually .

And then there was a third gift that came today. It was a Valentine’s gift  from my friend June in Idaho. That was such a wonderful surprise. Thank you so much June.
June has the most beautiful blog I have ever seen. It is called Laughing with Angels. If you don’t know June and her blog go visit her. Here is the link  http://laughingwithangels.blogspot.com/
She sent me this box with a gorgeous little heart made by herself , a little paper doily heart, some sweet hearts and a beautiful photocard with roses from her garden.  I never got anything for Valentine so this was  wonderful .

Je bent wel een geluksvogel deze maand, wat een leuke cadeaus allemaal. Dat boek van de tv serie is prachtig, ik geniet ook zo van de serie en dat fleece vest is "cool" met die tekst erop.

Your gifts are wonderful
and I hope that you enjoy them.

Downton Abbey is my favourite tv programme. I bought the 2 series so I could watch them in comfort with no interruptions and a friend sent me the Christmas edition.

The book sounds great as do your other presents.

Have a lovely weekend

I'm so glad you like it dear Riet. I made it with you in mind : )
I love Downton Abbey and always wait for Sundays to come around to see the next episode. The book looks beautiful. I love the pages that you showed here.

I cannot wait to be able to watch Downton Abbey, everyone keeps telling us how wonderful it is, going to try and buy the DVD's I think.

Happy Pink Saturday Riet Sweetie...
What a gorgeous pink share today. Your photo of the roses are just exquisite. I can in my mind smell the sweet fragrance and feel the softness of the petals on my fingertips. How pretty they are, and I can't thank you enough for finding just the right pink to share today.

Your gifts are lovely sweetie. I imagine you are in 7th heaven. A book to read, a jacket to keep you warm, and a heart made with love from June. Priceless for sure.

Have a glorious weekend sweet friend. Many hugs and so much love, Sherry

Karen Harvey Cox said...

Oh, I love your pink roses. Your gifts are gorgeous, and Downtown Abbey is one of my favorite shows. I wish I had the BBC all the time. We get to see some selected shows on our Public television network here in New England.

It's always a pleasure to see what you are up to...creating beauty no doubt.
