Have a wonderful Halloween!

Personalized Ornaments

A wonderful gift for the holidays that would be treasured for years to come is a hand painted personalized ornament. They are great for sisters, daughters, Mom, Grandma, girlfriends, hairdresser, teacher, newlyweds... They can be dated with the year, a birth date, an anniversary, or no date.

The ornaments sparkle beautifully on the tree because they are sugared with fine glass glitter.

These ornaments are currently available at Rose Brook Cottage.

Pink Saturday 10/17/2009

Happy Pink Saturday!
Thank you Beverly of How Sweet the Sound for hosting each week.
Check out her blog for more pretty pinks.

This Saturday I am sharing the new 2009 Holiday Barbie. When my daughter and I saw her we were so excited. She is wearing the most beautiful pink gown this year!

This year is Barbie's 50th Anniversary. So it's just fitting that she should be wearing her signature color for the holidays.

Barbie brings back such wonderful memories from when I was a girl. My favorite pass time by far was to "play Barbie's" . My Mom would give me leftover scraps from her sewing projects and I would make my Barbie new dresses.
Now I have newer memories playing Barbie's with my daughter. And making clothes with her for her dolls :)
Did you play Barbies when you were a girl?

Have a fun Pink Saturday,

A New Blog Look and A New Friend :)

Like my new blog background and banner?
I saw this set and loved the cottage look of it...just had to have it !
I got this blog set from a very sweet gal named Sheryn. It has been wonderful to meet her. She has a very beautiful blog. I just know you will love her and her blog :)
You have to hop on over to Pink and Pretty Designs. Her designs are beautiful and she is more than helpful if you need help in setting up your new background and banner.
While at her Sheryn's blog , check out her October Giveaway. It is fabulous! Scroll down and click on the link for Sheryn's giveaway in my sidebar.
Best Luck!

Snow In October

Look what we woke up to this morning!
Snow in October!

It's SO pretty...but I could really wait at least another month for the snow :)

My daughter was upstairs getting ready for school this morning and I could hear her singing...
Walking in a Winter Wonderland...

We haven't even carved a Jack-O-Lantern yet!
Oh my...

I wonder if this is a sign of the season to come...

Have a warm and cozy day,

So yummy and sweet, and best of all.... ZERO calories :)

Pink Saturday... Hope For A Cure

Because October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, I am simply posting a pink awareness ribbon... In honor of my dear friend taken too soon, in honor of my mom-in-law, a brave survivor, in honor of all who have been affected by this horrible disease.
I pray for the day that we will no longer need this pink ribbon. That our daughters (and sons)will no longer be threatened by breast cancer. I pray for a cure.
But until then, let the ribbon remind us of who we have lost, of the survivors, and of our own need to stay informed. Please do regular breast self exams and have mammograms done according to doctor's recommendations. Early detection is the best chance for a cure. Check out Web MD and Komen For a Cure for lots of useful information, and ways to get involved.

Thank you to Beverly of How Sweet the Sound for hosting each week. Stop by Beverly's blog to see who else is sharing pink this week. Also, be sure to check out Dolly @ From My Cherry Heart. She is a sweet gal with a beautiful blog :)

Many Blessings,
