Pink Saturday's 2nd birthday!

Happy pink Saturday!
I haven't posted in simply ages, but Beverly of How Sweet the Sound was kind enough to invite me to participate for the second birthday. Wow. I couldn't resist.
I still love pink. This first picture shows Molly, my AG doll, posing beside my pink camellia tree this past Easter. We had a lovely early spring this year and all the blossoms were twice what they normally are.
Here is my early repro Jumeau doll, given to me by my hubby for my 50th birthday, which I haven't celebrated yet. I attended a lovely doll show in Puyallup, WA in March, and I loved this little doll. She is 10" tall and made by June Arnold out of porcelain. June sewed her outfit.

In May I discovered how much I enjoy hand sewing Hankie Dresses, and so far I've made 6 and sold 5! Here is my repro Bleuette doll made by Candy Anderson, and given to me as a gift from Marcie last Christmas. This was the 3rd hankie dress I created.
I love to create my own cards. I've been doing this for around 10 years now.
Don't you love all the PINK in this card?
I made this card last Saturday and plan to give it to my sister, whose birthday was yesterday.
You wouldn't believe how the rose was made!

No, these aren't from my garden! This picture was taken at Van Dusen Gardens, in Vancouver, BC.
Beautiful pink cherry blossoms, always a welcome sight in spring!
We're planting a tree next year to celebrate Vancouver's 125th birthday!
Well, how could anyone live without a pair of pink shoes?
These are actually very comfortable, and I think they are so cute!
Happy Pink Saturday!
Enjoy all the pink in your life this week.

Happy Pink Saturday, Sandi. We started pinking together for over a year ago, and I have missed your smiling face.. Thank you for everything you do to make Pink Saturday special.

Thank you for sharing all of your wonderful pinks. I love the hanky dresses.
