Pink Saturday - Happy Valentine's Day

I'm happy to be participating in PINK Saturday hosted by Beverley from HowSweetThe sound. Be sure to check her site for more wonderful PINK participants.

HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY!! This is a perfect day to have PINK for Valentine's Day....and of course Valentine's Day is red too.

This is a brooche I made last year for Valentine's Day and I am wearing it again this year. I bent and moulded the wire into a shape of a heart then wrapped the pretty red wire around here and there slipping beads here and there throughout. At the end I twisted wire and hung some red swarovski crystals for a dangle effect. Now it has a couple of pink beads so I'm showing it to you.

Are you doing something special for Valentine's day? With your Mr. Romantic...or your children...or your grandchildren?

My goddaughter is getting married today at 3:00 p.m. She is the daughter of my best girlfriend, she and her hubby were the ones who had a PJ party with us at New Year's. I'll share pics with you. Marc and I are going as well as both my sons. They'll be all dressed up and handsome.

I wanted to share 2 Valentine's Days Marc and I shared. As I posted this week Marc and I live at least 3 hours from each other on a good drive. There have been 2 Valentine's over the last 11 years where because of weather or something else we haven't had a chance to spend the Valentine's together on an entire weekend.

So we met twice 1/2 way. His drive had him sitting at and crossing the border and driving 1.5 hours. I would drive my 1.5 hours and we met at a lovely restaurant called Lakehouse Restaurant right on Lake Ontario. We sat and talked and ate for a couple of hours and then said our goodbyes and drove our separate ways. Those visits were short but all the effort helped make them so very special and thoughtful.

This week I continued making tassels. This one is a pretty, pink girl tassel. Doesn't she have an adorable little face? She sits so perkily (is that even a word?) on a pink and white tassel with pink and white ribbons. There are a couple of pink and white beads dangling from the underside.

I have put her in my Etsy Shop. She goes along with the pretty pink and blue box she's sitting on. I think she'll look so pretty in a little girl's room.
I know you'll enjoy all the other PINKS today. Have a lovely Valentine's Day... Judi xoxo
