Pink Saturday & A Pink Giveaway

Happy Pink Saturday!

Thank you Beverly of How Sweet the Sound for hosting this fun event each week!
It's been quite a while since I posted for Pink Saturday. But after a completely unexpected hospital stay and recuperating and then the crazy start of school, I am finally back into the swing of things. I actually had some time to paint and list a few items (well...2) on ebay. I just finished painting one of my pink signs that I leave blank for personalization.

I decided that it would be a giveaway for this Pink Saturday. This is my first giveaway of what I hope to be many more :)

This is a wooden sign painted soft pink. Pink roses were hand painted on top and bottom to frame your choice of personalization (name, or short phrase). It hangs by a soft pink seam binding ribbon. The sign measures approximately 14" by 9". Picture of sign is below, click on it for a closer view.

If you may be interested in winning this sign you could enter the as follows:

Leave a comment for this post for one entry. Follow this blog for one entry.If you both leave a comment and become a follower, you will be entered twice.If you mention the giveaway in a post of your own, let me know and that will count as an entry as well.

Drawing will be on Friday September 18th in the p.m. and posted Saturday September 19th in my Pink Saturday posting. Good Luck!

~ Have a wonderful weekend! Happy Pink Saturday! ~

Well, I just had to mess up the comment I first posted by spelling something I will try again..Mary your plaque is so delicate and feminine looking and I just love the shade of pink! A very Happy Pink Saturday and I will add a link from my blog post to yours!

Even though I am not participating (as I missed the deadline yet again), I am doing an organic visit to wish my friends old and new, Happy Pink Saturday!

What's an organic visit'? It's one that takes a natural course through an almost viral form. I'm visiting people YOU have had visit, and then visiting people they have had visit, and so on! Great way to reach out and talk to people.

Your post was delightful, and I adore your sign. Oh the talent! I have followed you, and posted - I will mention you in a post as well, anything for a chance to win that gorgeous sign! HPS -

L♥ve your pink goodies this week. Just when I think I have enough pink in my life I participate in Pink Saturday and see even more sweet things I’d enjoy having in my home or flowers for my gardens or just to look at☺ What could be better than the color pink dancing in your head all morning?

Thanks so much for sharing. Hoping your weekend is filled with sunshine and the comfort of those you love and who love you.
