Pink Saturday…..I’m Dreaming and a Giveaway

I know most of us (including me) haven’t gotten the last Halloween decoration put away and the Thanksgiving menu is still on the “to do” list, but I love Christmas. So I’m dreaming…What if Christmas looked like this?


And the tree was covered in these?


Or this?


And the mantel was hung with this?


And the front door greeted you with this?


And the table was set with this?


And this?


Wouldn’t it be fun?

I posted my 100th post this week. I have loved “meeting” so many of you and hope to meet so many more. You can read about and enter my Giveaway for some early Christmas decorations here. Also……


Starting on Tuesday, December 1, I will be hosting a “Deck the Halls” party every Tuesday through January 5. You can read the details here. I hope you will join me! I hope you will grab a button after you read the details and spread the word!

Thank you Beverly at How Sweet the Sound for hosting Pink Saturday! I hope everyone has a great pink Saturday and a wonderful weekend!

p.s.—I am posting a little early…I will be painting on Friday and Saturday…and I don’t mean portraits or landscapes :)


  1. I thought maybe I slept through Friday:) I had a white tree for a few years (as an extra) and I loved decorating it in fabulous colors. The pink tree is amazing. I recently saw a gold tree and fell in love with it. Oh, the possiblities.


  2. Very, very pretty for Pink Saturday. I grabbed your Christmas button! Looking forward to Christmas - my favorite decorating time!


  3. I do not envy you painting - oh, it makes my muscles ache to think about it! What lovely pink Christmas ideas. When my great nieces were little, we had an all pink, girly tree. The Christmas tree skirt reminded me of a pink tutu - lots of layers of pink netting and silk ribbons. Hope the painting goes smoothly and that you have a nice weekend.

  4. When you finish painting I will give you a key to my home - I have lots of painting jobs on my to do list. :-)
    Have a great weekend.

  5. I LOVED being surrounded by PINK! What a great post! Have fun painting, I'm sure you'll let us see what you are up too!

    Have a great weekend, Bonnie

  6. Hi Susan. Lots and lots of pink. I just love those pink stockings - so sweet. And that tree makes me think of cotton candy.

    Thanks for stopping by my craft a day project and leaving your sweet comments. It maked me smile today and I love that!

    Hope you stop in tomorrow. Have a fun filled weekend.
    Hugs...Tracy :)

  7. Cute pink Christmas decorations. I just saw some pink ornaments at a thrift store today. Great idea for the Deck the Halls party...I'll be sure to join.

  8. Hi Susan,

    Love all your pinkness! and a great post.
    Much luck with the painting and I hope that you have some time to relax and enjoy the weekend


  9. I absolutely LOVE your pink Christmas ideas. I have used a lot of pink over the years at Christmas and I think I might just have to have a closer look at those napkin rings for this year!
    Thanks for your pink ideas!
    Best wishes, Natasha.

  10. Love your Christmas Pinks! Have fun painting!;)
    Happy Pink Saturday!
    Hugs, Lisa

  11. Susan, what pretty Christmas pinks! Almost enough to make me want to have a pastel Christmas. But, there is no way I can get rid of all of my reds, greens, etc.! Can't wait to see what you're painting. Don't work too hard. Have a great weekend. laurie

  12. you have me dreaming. My living room is in the pinks...and now..I am thinking of putting a tree in there ...of its very own. Two trees? Of course..why not...
    What wonderful ideas you are dreaming ...gorgeous! My house is small..would two tree's be too much? Dreaming here too... :)

  13. Hubby will be painting next week here. Would love to see the pictures of what you did!!!

    I think it would be awesome to have a pink Christmas. I don't think anyone else in my family would feel that way, but it's nice to dream.

    Enjoy your weekend!

  14. Love your Christmas Pinks!
    What wonderful ideas.
    Happy pink saturday!!

  15. What a beautiful girly girl Christmas that would be. Great Ideas!!

  16. Pink is my favorite color - no other compares, so Pink Saturday is the day when I can sit back, look at sweet pink goodies and visit some of the most lovely blogs in cyberspace.

    Thank you for sharing your pinks with me today. They warmed my little pink ♥. Wishing you a wonderful and blessed weekend filled with the love of friends and family.

  17. Happy Pink Saturday, Susan. Visions of a Pink Christmas are fun.

    Don't work too hard painting. And, be certain to show us pictures.

    I've got my fingers crossed to win. ;-)

  18. What a pretty pink Christmas post! Happy Pink Saturday!

  19. Susan, I have a good friend who always does pink. She has collected pink Christmas things for years because her house was full of Piere Deux fabrics and Cowtan and Tout. It is truly adorable, and she even found plates that work for Christmas in pink. So I had to smile at this.

    Congrats on your 100th post and Happy Pink Saturday.

    I need to be painting, too!
