Pink Saturday!

I wanted to share some randoms pics and items that reflect my pink personality. Above is a photo dated June 14, 2009. It was taken from the front of my house and shows an awesome rainbow! I love this picture because it shows the pink in the rainbow and it reminds me that summer will soon be here! "Whenever the rainbow appears in the clouds, I will see it and remember the everlasting covenant between God and all living creatures of every kind on the earth." Genesis 9:16

This is an undated photo of my middle daughter Rebekah who is 21 years old. This was taken when she was approximately two years old and she is decked out in hot pink! She still loves to wear hats today! My lap top case is serving as background for the pic.

This is a vintage 1960s seashell bracelet I received as a gift from my aunt's sister Kay who lived in Los Angeles and worked for the Broadway Department Store. It is a real treasure and I enjoy reflecting on those days and how fun and carefree life was back then.

 This is a very yummy dish! Fresh Pink Salmon with lemon and Rosemary. It is an awesome healthy dish to serve with some fresh asparagus. The rosemary is fresh so it gives a nice flavor to the fish and the thinly sliced lemon slices keep it nice and moist. It is a quick pink dish to whip up in less then 30 minutes from prep to finish! Voila!

This is my favorite pink (with blue) this weekend.  My paternal grandmother Mary Kocman hand made this delightful doily. It is one of the very few things I inherited from my late mother because it was tucked inside my mom's cedar chest which I have. These are both treasures to me but I am so proud to own this little piece of my history.

As always I must graciously thank Beverly over at How Sweet The Sound for hosting these Pink Saturdays. They encourage me to meet new bloggers each week and also look into the creativity of others. Thanks Beverly! You are an awesome lady to take time from your own busy life to coordinate all this every single week for 52 weeks each year! Thank you so much!

I am in such awe of Beverly and Kalee for starting this circle of friendship to help Collette and honor Frankie. Please make sure you stop Beverly blog and post a comment and then go to Kalee's page and post there and also leave a Face Book message for Collette.

Now I want to remind everyone who stops by my place to make sure to visit other "Pinks" in the Pink Saturday realm.  I scooted over to see Val at Wanderlust & Pixie Dust. Check this lovely blog out for yourself. Then I had to stop by to say hi to Tes at Gardening with Soule. This blog reminds me of Springtime. Finally I said hello to lots of old friends because so many of you I stop by daily and feel like I have known you for a very long time.

Happy Pink Saturday to all and I am going to learn to link up properly with everyone. Enjoy some pink today!

Anne, I have to agree the doily is a treasure. I love pink and blue, too. Such a sweet little girl. I have a son just a year younger. It's always precious to remember them.

Happy Pink Saturday!

Howdy! I enjoy reading the story behind the doily and the chest. History is so interesting. Plus you have memories with these items. Seeing the rainbow must have made your day.

It's always so much fun for me to travel from blog to blog on Pink Saturday. Each and every entry is different and each and every one makes me smile and feel all pink from the inside out☺

Today, 'tis cold up here, near zero, so I need all the little pink rays of sunshine I can gather 'round and your blog certainly has helped to warm my pinkie ♥.

Thanks so much for sharing this week. Your blog is wonderful and filled with so much to see and to read!
