Look at what I received in the mail! It’s just perfect to share with you today.

Welcome to Pink Saturday !

Many of you would remember that before Christmas I held a Giveaway here and sent off prizes to the winnersJanice from Enchanted Quilling  was the winner of the main prize and she had a little surprise in store for me too.  How gorgeous are these – a beautiful pink roses card and a delightful bookmark. It’s sooo nice receiving surprises in the mail. Janice creates some beautiful designs so do pop over and check out all her gorgeous goodies.

Thank You Janice – they’re a lovely surprise to receive.

Now I just had to share another beautfiul rose with you. These photos were taken between Christmas & New Year. We had gorgeous weather – a little hot but it’s always nice when the rains come to cool things off. (well, we actually had thunderstorms & lighting)

…. and here was this gorgeous rose the day after the rains – my friend drew my attention to it and of course I couldn’t resist taking the photos.

Beautiful, Beautiful – a reminder that we Must take time out in our busy lives (whether it’s family life or work) to ‘smell the roses’.  It keeps us healthy, puts a smile on our faces and, while enjoying the beauty around us, we momentarily forget all the things that weigh us down. It may not solve our problems & worries but it injects new energy & refreshes us so that we can keep on going.

I could’ve missed out on seeing this gorgeous rose – I’m so glad I didn’t.


I hope you enjoyed this week’s entry. I believe everything is now back to normal with my computer & blogs so I’ll be able to visit more & get back into the Pink Saturday challenge by next week.

There are many wonderful entries for Pink Saturday which is hosted by Beverly at How Sweet The Sound. Take time to visit other participants’ blogs and see how Pink everyone’s Saturdays can be – you won’t be disappointed.

Happy Pink Saturday Everyone!
