Good Morning! Welcome to another Pink Saturday. I chose to post about a swap I was in because I received some lovely pink pretties. Priscilla from had a Vintage Stocking Swap. My partner was Sherry from She made such wonderful items. If you click on the photos you will get an ever better look at her exquisit work. Look at all that pretty pink wrapping with white bows. Take a look at the beautiful stocking with vintage pom pom trim. Plus a yo yo brooch that can be taken off, if I desire.

Sherry also made two aprons for my daughters in this cute vintage inspired fabric with children on it. Oh the girls absolutely loved them. As many of you know, the girls love to help me bake. And these will be perfect also because Jane is getting a CUPCAKE MAKER from Dan and I. And Audrey is getting an EASY BAKE OVEN from Gaga and Papa (Dan's Parents). So these are just so perfect.

Sherry also made me a pretty tissue cover and these pretty birdie cards.

I love hankies, especially if they are vintage and pink. Do you see the pretty teacup too. I have it displayed with the rest of my teacup collection. It is so pretty. And on top of the doiley are two pretty yo yo brooches with little crocheted flowers. I wish I could do that. They look so adorable. I might just have to put them on the girls aprons!

Thank you Sherry!
Well, I hope you enjoyed seeing the goodies I received from my stop. Make sure to check out other pretty pink posts today. Thank you Beverly from How Sweet the Sound for hosting this wonderful event. Have a Pinkalicious Saturday.
pink hugs, Ellen
