Happy (Pink) Independence Day!

Happy Pink Independence Day!

Too bad we don't all have a pink flag to post today!

This little gravy boat was my mom's and is over 70-years-old (and it looks it!). I remember it from my childhood. Over the years of my adult life it's been used for food, for a tiny little planter and now just sits quietly on a shelf as a reminder of another more peaceful era.

Have a happy, safe, blessed pink holiday weekend! Jayne

Happy Pink Saturday!

Well, I think it's nice to have something of your grandma to remember her by. See, just by posting you remember the memories surrounding this platter :-)

Happy Pink Saturday Fourth to you today!

Don't you love having things around that remind you of your mother and family times past? It always makes me smile. My mother has been gone for almost 20 years, and I love having things that belonged to her nearby.

XO,

Sheila :-)

Happy Pink Saturday and Happy 4th July (being from the UK, I hadn't realised it was Independence Day...).
